Nature has blessed the world with amazing peaks to clmib/moutains to trek and everyone has their favorite or set of favorites. Well for me who finds every peak/moutain fascinating it is quite a task to list down my own favorites and the list in unending till date :).

However certain places on earth never fail to capture my attention and here is one such moutain I would definitely want to trek before dying or die while trekking because even though there are marked trails, I have heard that there are great chances of getting lost due to the presence of umpteen no. of trails.
