Thorong la pass (Thorung la) (5 416 m asl) is probably the most famous pass throughout Nepal. It is said to be the highest „tourist“ place throughout the country, which is not correct. But the truth is that you can cross it in sandals if the weather is good, because the path over it is neither steep nor narrow and trade caravans from Tibet used to walk this way. But it certainly cannot be underestimated, because it had several times become a trap for tourists in a snow storm (see the recent disaster of October 14, 2014).
