Here’s something a little different. Erik Bertrand Amme, who I trekked the entire length of the Annapurna Circuit with has kindly agreed to provide his honest account of one of the hardest days of our trek. Today saw us crossing Thorong-La Pass – at 5416m, one of the highest mountain passes in the world.
