Phedi or High Camp to Muktinath
The journey from Phedi “foot of the hill” or at the foot to the 5416 m Thorung La pass, begins the day. We then make the climb steeply that is regularly used and easy to follow. However, the problem may arise due to the altitude and snow. It often causes terrible problem to cross the pass if it is covered by snow. About four hours climb up to the pass marked by the chortens and prayer flags. As you reach the top, you are rewarded by the magnificent view from the top.
