Down into the valley

We wake again to stunning views before heading down towards the valley. We’ve stopped following the high ridge now and today will make our way down to the valley and up the other side. With the sun beating down we start the descent and drop rapidly ... Read more >

Climbing climbing

NEPAL | Monday, 20 Mar 2006 | Views [790]

The view as we climb out of the tent is amazing. Where there was nothing but cloud yesterday afternoon now stands the entire Ganesh himal range against a clear blue sky. Breakfast is a very civilised porridge and cup of tea in the dinning tent ... Read more >
