Day 07: High Camp(4,915masl) to Thorong Pass(5,416masl) to Muktinath(3,720masl)

16 Days Winter Self-Guided Solo Hike in Annapurna Circuit  (5,416masl) and Base Camp (4,130masl)
January 06 to 21, 2016

​Day 05-06: Pisang(3,200masl) to Yak Kharka(4,050masl) to High Camp(4,925masl)

The moment of truth... I arrived early to High Camp for intentional early rest because I need to wake-up early also. As locals advised, it is recommended to start the trek going to Thorong La at 0500H to 0530H to avoid windy surrounding. I woke-up 0420H but due to the Lodge's slow movement and attention, I left High Camp 0615H. The trail is gradual ascent but the altitude sickness had an effect on me since I was in Yak Kharka. From High Camp to Thorong La it takes about 3 hours to trek but I did it by 3.5 hours due to AMS. Luckily, there was almost no snow on the Thorong La area even though some challenging icy trails before it. After 30 minutes of photo-ops and relaxation, I went for descent which has a very slippery and steep trails with black poles as trail marker.

REMINDER: Please take note that my trekking hours is of below average, I'm always lagging for around an hour to the next destination. Also, check-out bill in the morning day after includes lodging for 1 room, dinner and breakfast.
