Nepal... here I come!

Jan 06, 2014

This big news of the moment is that I am off to Nepal in April, to trek in the Kumbu area, and (hopefully) to climb Island Peak. I intend to keep a diary, to take loads and loads of photographs, and to use my experiences to design a new course for people looking to go trekking in the high mountains or remote areas of the world. I also hope to write about my experiences, and maybe give a few illustrated talks.

For me, the experience is not so much about climbing a big peak (just under 6200 metres), but more about exploring the Himalayan landscape and experiencing the spirituality of the area. With the exception of the flights between London and Kathmandu (which are now booked!), everything is being done locally in order to keep the money in the local economy.

All I have to do now is get some spare camera batteries and memory cards, to make sure my kit is up to scratch, and to get myself fit enough to enjoy the total adventure!

Watch this space for updates!!
