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.

Amazing capture – perfect for the challenge and a lovely memorial for those who’s lives ended there.
Thanks Tina! Yes I can’t imagine how scary the avalanche must have been especially after being there myself. So scary and so sad.
