Trekkers crossing landslide area to Tilicho Base Camp

On the north eastern side of the Annapurna circuit there is an alternate trail you can take to visit Tilicho lake. It's a more precarious trail with quite the elevation gain climbing to the lake. This image is of the landslide section that one must cross twice going to and coming from the base camp. It takes about one hour to traverse and is recommended to do as speedily as possible.
