Photographer's Note

Cho La is a summit pass located 5,420 metres (17,782 ft) above sea level in the Solukhumbu District in northeastern Nepal. It connects the village of Dzongla (4830 m) to the east and the village of Thagnak (4700 m) to the west. It was one of the highest altitude I had to go over during my Himalaya Trek. At some point near the top, I got really tire and I was gasping for air, but there was not enough oxygen in the air. I had to calm myself down and for the rest of the ascend, I walked very slowly with slow and steady breath. This view was taken at the summit.
