Safely passed Thorong La Pass

This morning at 5.30 am, we set out for the Thorong La pass, from high camp.
2 and a half hours later at 8 am we reached it – 5416 meters. The morning was beautiful and we all crossed safely.

Again it was not without dramas – I saw many people having to turn around, throwing up, being carried over by horses, etc. But fortunately the gang of people I had met all managed without major problems.

Now I am at 3800 meters relaxing, high on the experience, a bit sad that I soon have to leave Nepal – and very clear in my mind that I have to return and do a peak next time – I have a 6500 meter peak in mind 🙂

Anyhow, just wanted to let everyone know that I am safe and healthy.

  • Ohhh yeah I can see the drama of crossing on horseback.. Poor people… Or sensible people depending on your perspective..

    But great to hear that your enjoying it and that you made it.
