2015 Everest pics

Here are some of the pictures I took while in Nepal for my trek to Everest Base Camp. I am looking forward to going back to do the Three Passes Trek in the same region!

Ama Dablam and the Buddha's eyes. This will be in the February '16 issue of Lonely Planet Traveller!
My personal favorite shot. Ever. Ama Dablam as I was leaving Dingboche - which is a couple of hundred feet below the ridgeline. Buddhist chortens are what are lined on the bottom. 
Manmade mountains vs. the real thing

Day 7 of the hike about 5 hours before getting to Lukla

Buddhist prayer wheels

The scale of everything is just so vast! This is before getting to Namche Bazaar 
The Nepalese form of transport of goods
Buddhist prayer flags at my guesthouse in Kathmandu

Namche Bazaar backed by the Kongde Ri

The views are stupendous!

Om mani padme hum - with Mt. Everest behind it


I made it to Everest Base Camp! No porter - no guide. All on my own!

The view while hiking on my 40th birthday. Worth every second!!!

Taken after leaving Pangboche. The Guru Rinpoche is said to have brought Buddhism north.

Tengboche. Clouds. Horses. Mountains. 

Ama Dablam.
