Episode 11 of Season 3 of Ski the Himalayas opens with the team still on the trail to Base Camp, and crossing through Thorung Pass, where the scenery is simply breathtaking. Watching this episode will both inspire you to visit the Himalaya and discourage you at the same time, as the effects of altitude sickness are hitting the climbers to some degree or another. It is also a great demonstration of how strong the Sherpas are, as they shuttle the very heavy loads up to BC.
