307 Annapurna North Base Camp At Beginning Of Miristi Khola [21 of 33]
We arrived at the first French Base Camp (4190m) at 12:15, 3 hours after leaving our Miristi Khola camp . “Schatz and I arrived at Base Camp, which was pitched among the moraines in the midst of a vast stony desert with little blue-green lakes dotted about in the hollows” (Maurice Herzog, Annapurna). The first French Base Camp is in a nice location at the foot of the north Annapurna Glacier next to a beautiful aquamarine glacial lake, the beginning of the Miristi Khola. It's on an area covered with brown covered gray sand and scattered strands of grass.
