Miss Nepal 2012, Shristi Shrestha, celebrated her birthday today, on October 19, 2014. A resident of UK, Shristi is currently in Nepal. She celebrated her birthday with models and artists.
A few days before her birthday Shristi was on the Annapurna Circuit trek which she had to abandon the tour when one of her friends became altitude sickness. That way she escaped the Thorong pass snowstorm that killed more than 20 people.
On October 15, Shristi wrote: I am absolutely speechless! The group that were crossing the Thorong la Pass was the one me and my partner were traveling with since the beginning of the Annapurna circuit. Many have lost their lives in the snowstorm and many more are untraceable right now. We were all together till camp Ghunsang, then I had to urgently trek down towards Manang as my partner fell terribly ill with altitude sickness, while the rest of the group carried on to Thorong pass, where this misfortune was awaiting. Dear god, please help find the lost travellers and those who lost their lives…rest in eternal peace my friends.
That was an unfortunate incident. Now, back to birthday celebration: Here are some more photos of Shristi during birthday celebration.
