Hike Yak Kharka - Thorong Phedi
Inserted: 23.02.2013
Author: Marek Spilka © gigaplaces.com

The path from Yak Kharka (4035 m asl) rises only slowly through Thorong Khola valley up to the base camp in Thorong Phedi (4538 m asl) (sometimes written as Thorung Phedi). Among treks around the Annapurnas this one belongs to the shortest ones. In Thorong Phedi, from where every day early in the morning tourists set off to conquer Thorong La Pass, the highest point of the trek, is plenty of time to have a rest or an acclimatization trip up to High Camp.

Carriers on the way to Thorong Phedi

You pass across the bridge to the right bank of Thorong Khola on 2/3 of the way to Thorong Phedi. The old path on the left bank is pulled down by a landslide. Even the new path is also threatened by landslides.

Carrier just before Thorong Phedi

The final stage of the ascent, very close to Thorong Phedi, leads already on the flat land through the constricted valley.

Thorong Phedi

Lodges in Thorong Phedi. If you do not want just to relax, you can go for a half-day trip to the High Camp and back /see the following pho­toreport/. But remember that you will have to ascend the same way once more during the ascent to the Thorong La Pass.
