The selection process was competitive and the National Geographic Traveler editorial team worked long and hard to find 2012’s most authentic, most innovative, most immersive, best-guided, and most sustainable tours. “Our theme this year was transformation. The outfitters we selected are experts at creating trips that have the power to change lives - the lives of the traveler as well as the residents of the destinations,”
“The October 5 to 27, 2012 trip into the NarPhu Valleys is an adventurous trek in the Annapurna region is for those wanting to explore hidden Tibetan valleys, trek off the beaten path and cross the challenging high passes of Kang La (5315 meters) and Thorong La (5416 meters)”, states One World director Andy Crisconi.
