Recital at Tilicho Lake (4910m altitude) of “Tilicho Lake” by David Whyte

Marcus Sorensen recites the poem "Tilicho Lake" by David Whyte in front of that same lake at 4910m altitude in Nepal. It is the world's highest lake, and frozen over for most of the year. It took 8 days' trekking to reach it with local sherpas. It is vast, at over 4km in length, and described by adventurer Maurice Herzog as "The Great Ice Lake", when he passed it on his way to do the first 8000m+ mountain climb in history at the nearby Annapurna Peak. Marcus was inspired to visit it to "see the true shape of [his] own face". With gratitude to Daphne Bouma-Jansen for the idea.
