Everest Base Camp Anniversary

It’s a year to the day since a small group of wanderers reached Everest Base Camp in Nepal. I was lucky enough to be among that group.

It simply wouldn’t be right to let the anniversary pass without posting a couple (or more) photos of the trek, so some that didn’t make the initial cut follow. With a fair wind we’ll be back on higher ground soon. In the meantime, in 2018, we hope to organise an exhibition of artwork focused on the mountains of Nepal and Tibet. Watch this space!

  1. These are great shots. the one flying over Kathmandu is very clear, because the Kathmandu Valley does have a lot of issue with their air quality, I would love to know what month you were there? An exhibition of the photos sounds great. Congratulations on making it to Kala Patthar. Louise

  2. Hi Louise. The month was November and the flight, I think, was Nov 4th or there or there abouts. I’ve just taken a look at your blogs on the trip. Wonderful pictures and words which bring back many memories. Good luck on your next trip.
