This shot was taken at an earlier stage of the Annapurna Circuit trek in Nepal. It just shows the magnitude of what lies ahead on this trek.

Moving towards Thorung La (17,769 ft)

 

The Thorung La Pass is one of the highest mountain passes in the world at 17,769 ft.

I walked the 200 odd kilometre Annapurna circuit trek in March 2014 to cross this pass.

RIP to all the trekkers that tragically died there last week.

Above the clouds in Muktinath – Nepal

I didn’t realise how far above the clouds we were during our trek till I reached Muktinath. Getting to Muktinath was a three hours trek after the Thorong La Pass.

This little village is 13,000 feet above see level. At this stage in my 19 day trek the air wasn’t as thin as it was earlier in the day but still roughly 60% oxygen!!
