Annapurna is a 55 km long massif in the Himalayas, the highest point of which, Annapurna I, stands at 8091m, It is the 10th-highest summit in the world. It is located east of a great gorge cut through the Himalaya Mountains by the Kali Gandaki River, which separates it from the Dhaulagiri massif. Annapurna is a Sanskrit name which literally means "full of food" (feminine form), but is normally translated as Goddess of the Harvests. In Hinduism, Annapurna is a goddess of fertility and agriculture and an avatar of Durga.
