The Kali Gandaki Gorge from north
Between the Annapurna massif on the left and the Dhaulagiri on the right the Kali Gandaki river has cut a deep gorge into the main Himalayan mountain ridge. This gorge marks one of the lowest altitude crossings in the Himalayas with an elevation of just 4660m at a pass near the foreground end of this view. The upper part of the valley froms the region and former independent kingdom of Mustang which is today part of Nepal.
