Day 12 of our trek around the Annapurna Circuit of the Himalayan Mountains.
We had reached our overnight stay destination of Thorung Phedi when this helicopter appeared. It was coming to rescue a trekker who had been hit on the head by a rock in a landslide. The helicopter provides a very value rescue service in such a remote area of the world.
