Yak Kharka to Thorong Phedi ( (4450 meters/ 14,599 feet)
We hiked for about 4 hours this day, had lunch and then did a short 40 minute climb. Another beautiful hiking day. Our guesthouse at Thorong Phedi was at such a high altitude that we no longer had a wood fire, yak dung instead, and the water for food/drinking was carried up from the river. The stove in the last photo is the yak dung stove that heated the dinning room for a few hours and heated the water for our evening meal.
