While in Nepal to climb Ama Dablam in 2013, I trekked around 3 valleys in the Sagarmatha National Park- Khumbu, Gokyo and Bhote Koshi. Highlights were frequent, including visiting Everest Base Camp and Kala Pattar, Gokyo Lakes and Renjo Pass. 2 Albums to view below.
3 inspiring weeks in the Himalayas trekking the Khumbu Valley en route to climb Imja Tse (Island Peak). The classic Khumbu experience: Lukla 9,200ft to Everest Base Camp 17,600ft and back. Massive peaks, beautiful Buddhist culture and the wonderfully addictive lifestyle of walking everyday.
My first major solo trip, and what a great trip it was! 5 weeks in Nepal and 25 days on the trail trekking the Annapurna Circuit with side trips to Tilicho Lake and Annapurna Sanctuary. The Annapurna Range is north-west of Kathmandu and home to 3 of the world’s 8000+ meter peaks. Incredible!
