Avalanche surges down Himalayas

Nepal’s Annapurna mountain range is noted as an extremely dangerous challenge, and New Zealand native Jasper Ballantyne captured footage that indicates just why climbers should be wary of tackling this section of the Himalayas. Ballantyne posted footage to Instagram on April 6 showing an enormous avalanche surging down Annapurna. Ballantyne, who is touring the region, and keeping up a travel vlog with his partner, was hiking along the Annapurna Circuit when he saw the impressive, if scary, sight. Ballantyne told Storyful the avalanche he saw was on March 22. The region experiences frequent avalanches, including one earlier in 2019, in which a trekking guide was killed.
