Return to the Himalaya

P1120985b

In a few days, I’ll be returning to Kathmandu. It will be the 3rd time I’ve led a group on Cho Oyu, 8201m. The 6th highest mountain in the world.

Last time we had a weather window and were lucky with great views from the summit.

A lot has happened since April …

From Dubai to Everest

My last post back in April 2015 had us on the North Col of Everest. Since then we suffered one of the worst earthquakes seen in Nepal.

To help raise funds for those Sherpas and Nepalis that we were with, I have published a book “From Dubai to Everest”.

All royalties will go directly to those people.

It tells the story of our expedition and also gives information about the places and people that we encountered.

Almost the first view of Everest

It was snowing when we woke up. The group set off after breakfast from Tingri in Tibet to hike up to a hill above the town at about 5000m.

The weather was changeable and cloudy all day so Everest has not revealed itself yet.

Tomorrow we will hopefully travel on to Basecamp if our bags and gear manage to get across the border and find us.

Final days of tranquility in Kathmandu before the clients arrive and we head off to Langtang for some acclimatisation trekking

We have been staying in The Eco Resort Hotel in Thamel

It’s quiet gardens are a haven of peace away from the busy streets
