Descent from Thorung La Pass

Thorong La Pass Nepal

Above is the view after reaching Nepal’s Thorung La pass, the highest point at 17,770 feet (5,416 meters) in elevation on the Annapurna hiking circuit which I did four years ago. It is also the site of one of the worst avalanches in Nepal’s history killing dozens of trekkers and porters. It is heartbreaking.
