Three Passes of Everest

Last April, I completed the Three Passes of Everest Trek in Nepal.  Recently, I presented  a photo slideshow accompanied by stories and travel tips to audiences in San Diego.

My guide’s name on the Everest trek was Lakpa.  He was very kind, friendly, a gracious. He lost his home during the earthquake of 2015 and is just now rebuilding.  He has a young daughter, named Rosina, that is very bright and would like to study the sciences. To help his family, I put together a gofundme page to help raise money for his daughter’s education.

Days 16-17: Lukla

Today’s walk was 12 miles in 9 hours from Namche Bazar to Lukla (9,383 ft).  That includes the one hour that we stopped for lunch. We walked slowly, but that allowed me to take lots of photos.  I enjoyed the walk!  With the scenic high country behind us, the subject of this day’s photos turned to the beautiful people.  The next day we waited around half the day until we could fly back to Kathmandu.

That’s all for this trip. It was a very special. The photos tell the story of the amazing scenery better than words. One friend wrote back, “Just imagine the beauty of the worlds within…. so much greater.”
