Looking back at my journey to the Everest region in Nepal.
Through the narrow mountain trails of Nepal up in the Himalayas to the Everest Base Camp, a solo backpacking trip in deeply religious Georgia, a few days in sizzling hot Abu Dhabi, a short transit tour through the island country of Sri Lanka on my way to the land of Unity in Diversity, India.
We were out of gas when we reached Thame. Our feet was heavily blistered and bleeding, there was barely any energy left in us.

Continuing my journey across the Khumbu region traversing the Three High passes. We docked in beautiful Gokyo, deep inside the Sagarmatha National Park.
Late September last year, I ventured out to the highlands of Ladakh in Jammu & Kashmir. I made a journey from Delhi to Leh and back. The goal of the trip was to traverse some of the high Himalayan Mountains of India in the Ladakh region.
