The way to Base Camp
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.
