For the past couple of years, Jon Miller of The Rest of Everest fame and Chris Marquardt from Tips From The Top Floor have hosted high altitude treks that have combined visits to Mt. Everest with photo workshops. Participants on the trek had the opportunity to visit both the North and South sides of the mountain while gaining valuable insights into shooting photography and videography in one of the best locations on the planet.
Now, the pair have spun off those very successful excursions into a new venture, launching the website HimalayanWorkshops.com today to support their future expeditions into the region. With that launch they’ve also announced that the 2011 workshop will take place on Mt. Kailash, a 21,778-foot peak located in western Tibet, that is a spiritual crossroads for Buddhists and Hindus alike.
The trek will begin on Sunday, April 17th, 2011 in Kathmandu and run to May 3rd. In between, the team will hike and drive their way through the Mt. Kailash region, exploring this beautiful area, while conducting the “highest photography workshops in the world.” Cost for the three week trip is $5999 with registration opening on Sunday, Oct. 17th.
