Between Chame and Pisang, while crossing the river we looked up at Annapurna II (7937 m) in time to see this avalanche come crashing down. Everything seemed to happen very slowly but I wouldn't have liked to be near it.

Later, near the Annapurna Sanctuary, we came across a chorten (pile of stones) built in memory of three trekkers who were killed there by an avalanche in March 2001.
