The Imja Khola Valley in Nepal

In the shadow of the highest mountain in the world lies a land of high passes, flower drenched meadows and massive glaciers. The Imja Khola is one of the rivers that flows down from the upper reaches of the Imja glacier and joins the Dudh Kosi at Thyanboche. This essay covers the Imja valley.
