Almanac Summer Reading: The Accident at Tashi Lapso Pass


Trekking places like Kathmandu, Nepal is a life’s dream for a lot of us.

For some, the dream is perhaps to climb Everest (Sagarmatha/Chomolungma) or maybe even conquer the climbers’ ‘white whale’ that is K2.

For others, the dream may merely be the delights of leaving the modern world behind and exploring exotic villages and meeting the people to be found on the many awe-inspiring treks throughout some of the most unforgiving terrain on this fragile blue ball we live on.

But what happens when things go wrong?

A little over 12 months ago, Almanacker Louise Currie found herself in a very perilous situation when trekking Kathmandu and, over the next 12 days, we’ll bring you her story as she details events in The Accident at Tashi Lapso Pass.

The story begins tomorrow with part one and we hope that you enjoy Louise’s words.
