Nepal October 2005

Jonathan Stewart and I took a trekking trip to Nepal and followed a route in the Khumbu that offered great weather, fantastic views and a peak cultural experience.  Our guide Ganesh, a Sherpa himself, added much to the trip with his ability to tap into the local people and have us experience the great hospitality of the local people in the region.  Our trip offered views of many 7000 and 8000 meter peaks including, Everest, Cho Oyo, Makalu, Lotse Shar and Nupse.
