Posing at the Thorung la pass

It felt so good to get to the pass. I was absolutely exhausted, but headache was gone, maybe because of the relief that finally we had reached the highest point of the trek. I was a bit worried of the altitude in the morning, because I had spent the previous day mostly in bed because of very bad headache. So on the previous day I didn't have a chance to do an acclimitazion walk. After a couple of photos, we headed down to the next district, Mustang. The descent of 1600m was an absolute killer after the already exhausting 6h ascent to the pass in 5416 meters.
