Last week, Anup Kaphle, Hugh Blodget, Jr. and I completed a grueling trek along the Annapurna Circuit. We crossed the popular Thorung La Pass, which sits at nearly 18,000 feet, just two days before a devastating storm killed about 40 trekkers, both foreigners as well as Nepalis. Here are some images from our trip through some of the most remote villages in Nepal.
