Episode 8 of the third season of Ski the Himalayas takes us back to Nepali village of Muktinath, where the team finally gets on their way to Base Camp on Thorung Peak, a 6157 meter (20,200 ft) mountain that they intend to climb and ski down. This episode also offers some great views of the Himalaya as the boys hit the trail for BC, with plenty of snow clinging to sides of the mountains. It is taking awhile for them to get to their destination, but the hope is that it will all pay off in the end.
