Previously Reb was struck by intense diahorrea, or the Ring of Fire as Mark likes to call it, which forced us to stay in the camp of Yak Kharka instead of Letdar.  Normally this early stop wouldn't be problematic but we wanted to spend the following ... Read more >


Glimpse of Heaven

Our 'rest day' began with us waking at 0500, enjoying a hearty breakfast, and heading off to conquer the climb to Ice Lake at an all time high elevation of 4600m (or 15,091 ft).  When preparing to climb at high elevation, like the Thorung La Pass at ... Read more >

Our goal was Baglung Pani, at an elevation of 1595 meters, a minor speck in comparison to what lay ahead once we reached the official start of 'the Circuit'. However, we would still be climbing over 1,000 meters, no easy feat when you don't know where ... Read more >

Or At Least Sharon Does.... A fresh new start and today's goal was to reach yesterday's desired destination (I was slightly afraid to see how many inches it was between start and finsih). Although it's October the temperature in the valley is very ... Read more >
