Ice and Rock Shake Loose in Dramatic, Basecamp-Adjacent Himalayan Avalanche
This is in the Indian territory of Ladakh. Don’t know much about which peak this basecamp serves, but the nearby peaks range upward of 20,000 feet in elevation. Clearly, like much of the Himalaya, they’re prone to avalanches too. According to the filmer, this slide was about a half mile from camp, still, way, way too close for comfort.
