301 Tilicho Peak And Annaurna Ridge To Fang, Ang Phuri Sherpa Burning Juniper For Mountain Deities, Trail Hugs The Miristi Khola [15 of 33]
In the early morning air at the Miristi Khola camp, Tilicho Peak shone at the head of the valley, while part of the long ridge from to the right of the Annapurna summit past Fang was visible to the east. Phuri lit a Juniper fire to honour the mountain gods. We left at 8:40 in clear cold -2C weather. We reached the sun at 9:10 and the layers came off.
