RIP adventurer!

Pour soul...I agree RIP to the man who adventured to one of the most beautiful places in the world. I was in the Sanctuary in 1990 and to this day it is perhaps one of the top 3 the most beautiful places I have visited.

I hope Nagasawa-san had a chance to take in all of the beauty the Annapurna Sanctuary has to offer before his unfortunate fall.

Very sad. Isn't he a bit old to be taking such a strenuous journey?

You are joking right? Most of the folks tromping around on Japan's rugged peaks are seniors and 64 is NOT old. Some 64 year olds are more capable than many 25 year olds. The oldest person to climb Mt. Everest was 80 and Japanese: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yuichiro_Miura

And...a 93 year old has climbed Mt. Fuji and that is not as easy a feat despite many folks making the trek.

That being said, I am horrified every time I read of a fall of several hundred meters. Rest In Peace fellow adventurer.

This is a beautiful part of the world near Pokhara. Usually the bus ride from KTM is the most dangerous part of that trip.
