Photos From The Himalaya

Over the past few weeks, since getting back home from Nepal, I have slowly begun to get back to my routine and work through a backlog of work, writing, and so on. Anyone who has ever gone on a long trip like that one can probably relate, as the jet lag alone makes it challenging to get back to normal life.

Fortunately, I’m mostly recovered, and working my way through my “to do list” of things I need to accomplish, which included getting some photos online from the trip. I have created a web gallery of some of the shots I took while traveling in Nepal, and I thought that some of you might be interested in seeing them. The gallery can be found by clicking here.

Personally, I have to say that I’m not entirely happy with how the photos came out. There are a few that I actually like, but for the most part, I think I failed at capturing the beauty and the splendor of the place. Perhaps I feel this way because the scenery is so amazing that it is difficult to actually capture it properly on film. Still, these photos will give you an idea of what it is like in the Khumbu Valley, and what you can expect if you ever decide to go there yourself. It is a spectacular hike, and of course I highly recommend it.

As for stories about the trek, they are coming soon. I’ve been collecting my thoughts and generating an outline of what I’d like to post about, so no worries. I’ll be sharing elements of the trek with everyone in the very near future. In the meantime, if you have questions about what it is like, feel free to drop me a note. I’m happy to answer anything you’d like to know. I can be reached at [email protected].

I hope you enjoy the photos!

  1. Great photos! It feels like just yesterday I was there, even though it's been a year. (One year ago today, I was finally escaping Dingboche after being snowed in for three days!) And it really is hard to capture the beauty and the scale of the region in photos or video, which is why I keep telling people they have to go and see it for themselves.

  2. Fortunately, we escaped the blizzards that kept you in Dingboche, but I was thinking of your group while I was there.

    For the most part, the weather was fantastic while I was there. We had rain late in the day a couple of times, but nothing like you experienced.

    Glad you liked the photos, and hopefully they took you back in a good way. πŸ™‚

  3. Thanks for sharing… brought back many fond memories from last year(or at least strengthened them in some way… they never go completely away).

  4. Nice photos Kraig, brought back great memories for me as well. I think the ones of Ama Dablam are impressive. I must have 100 shots of that beautiful hill.

  5. I have to agree Alan. Ama Dablam is amazing to look at. Surely one of the most beautiful mountains in the range, if not the world. I loved hiking in the shadow of that peak for all those days.

  6. Good stuff — I really enjoyed those. It's great to see some of the minutiae — street scenes in Kathmandu, leaving the airport at Lukla, local folk going about their everyday business. I've never visited the area, but you've got me thinking about it again…

  7. I love that minutiae too Paul. When I visit places like Nepal or elsewhere, I love to take photos on the street, capturing things in their natural state.

    You definitely should consider going. It is an amazing place to visit.
