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.

The hike up Jebel Hafeet from the Green Mubazzarah is stunning

The desert and rock formations are slowly revealed

The summit is over 1200m and the temperature difference is noticeable
