Chasing Yeti

Khumbu - google earth
A Google Earth aerial view of the Khumbu region of Nepal. Mount Everest (29035 ft / 8850 m) is the mountain at top right. Everest gets the spotlight as the tallest mountain in the world, but it is surrounded by a plethora of equally impressive peaks. For a sense of the enormous scale of these mountains, consider that the prominent valley in the center is over 12,000 vertical feet deep!

Tomorrow we fly around the world to Kathmandu, Nepal to spend two months trekking in the Himalaya – the world’s tallest and grandest mountains! We plan on hiking in the Khumbu/Everest region during the first month, staying in teahouses in the small villages along the way. (No, we won’t be climbing Everest). Our plans are open for the second month, so we’ll just play it by ear. I am so excited for this trip I can hardly cope!

Although I will mostly be unplugged during our adventures in the mountains, I am still accepting print orders through my gallery website. Prints ordered in October, November, and December will be delivered according this print delivery schedule. The deadline for ordering prints for Christmas gifts is November 21. I will respond to image licensing requests and other inquiries as quickly as I am able to.

Namaste!

  1. Hi Jack, been following your blog for a while, beautiful work! Thanks for sharing all your images, you’re an inspiration! Really excited to see what you capture in Nepal through your eyes, I did the EBC trek back in April, had an unforgettble time .Safe travels and happy shooting!

  2. Have an excellent trip, Jack! That’s my favorite place in the world to trek–and you’re going at the perfect time of year. Consider Makalu Barun for your second trek, if you want to get into some wild, sublime, and high country. Manaslu is stunning too, and easier to organize–and if you ask around in Kathmandu you can find a guide who will go fast-and-light. Really looking forward to your photographs!
