Photographer's Note

Back to my 'travelogue' of Nepal, this is further up the path of the last post. The village of Kagbeni, seen on the distance on that post is now behind and in front are Jharkot (on the lower left), Muktinath [te, wikipedia] (behind it at some distance) and Thorong La pass, the highest point (5416 meters / 17769 ft) on the Annapurna Circuit (somewhere in the biggest V drawn by the BG mountains).

The POV of this one is somewhere on the upper right of the last post, invisible because it is on the other face of the mountain and maybe out of the image. It is also approximately symmetric of my first TE post.

Location (latitude, longitude): 28.8285,83.809 (I am not sure about the accuracy, but my guess is that the error isn't higher than 1.5 Km / 1 mile)

Note on the location in TE: according to Wikipedia, all this region, from Jomsom to Lo Manthang and Muktinath is part of Dhawalagiri district [te]. I put my posts in the Gandaki district following the others, as almost no one posts their photos of the region in the supposedly right place.
