With names like Jabberwocky Tower, Dragon Tail, Little Annapurna, The Witches Tower, Leprachaun Lake, Gnome Tarn and Aasgard Pass, it conjures up images of JRR Tolkien's books, The Lord of the Rings and it in deed looks like a place right out of those books.
I have visited a few places around the world, whether they where tropical or alpine or something in between, this place ranks at the top for pure beauty, I think this is Mother Nature's finest piece of work.
In trying to describe this place, one would imagine themselves being dropped on an alien planet similar to ours, yet with things a tad different, yet untouched by by anything unnatural.
