More Nepali Photographs

The following photographs were all taken in Nepal some time ago.

The picture above is of Mount Pumori (7145m) and the little bump in the foreground which doesn't have any snow or ice on it is the famed "Kala Pattar" (5545) which doesn't look like much but walking up and down is quite a strenuous days walk. Having done this, I have the utmost respect for anyone that climbs any of the high peaks - guided or not.

This cottage was where we slept after we had crossed the Chola La (5480m) pass. Rob had had giardia the day before and I think this was probably his most difficult day ever. The pass is pretty tough as it is even without being sick.

Jumping now to the Annapurna region somewhere along the Modi Khota which is the river flowing from the Annapurna Sanctuary glaciers. (*&^^(*&&^ freezing which I can actually confirm because I took a dip in it. Instant ice-cream headache - it felt like somebody was shrinking one's scalp without removing the skull first.

I can't actually remember where this was but it was in the Annapurna region.
