After a much deserved vacation to Maine, Jon Miller and his traveling companion Scott Jacobs, are back this week with a new episode of The Rest of Everest, continuing their journey through the Himalaya in Nepal and Tibet.
When we last left off, the guys had departed the North Side Base Camp of Everest and were continuing their journey along the Friendship Highway. This episode is entitled The Shortest of the Tallest, which of course refers to Shisha Pangma, the 14th, and “shortest” of the 8000 meter peaks. Shisha makes a prominent appearance this week’s show, along with some interesting local species of Tibetan birds, and the wide open expanses of the Tibetan plateau.
After passing through Tong La, a high altitude mountain pass, it’s “all down hill” from there. Literally! The guys begin their return trip to Nepal, and eventually home to the United States. But before that happens, we continue to get some great video shots of the region, it’s cultural wonders, and it’s amazing people.
