Nepal Everest View Trek Photos

After an easy second day on the Nepal Jiri-Gokyo trek the third day was as hard as it looked from Kinja, with a long steep climb the only way out of the village in our direction. In the morning, after the previous day’s cloud dissipated, snow-capped mountains were visible. Mule trains passed on the hike.

Kinja to Goyom Everest View Trek

The long incline levelled off entering Sete. After lunch there, the route led upwards again, when the other direction along the valley was flat!

The path was nicely tree-lined, but emerging from cover at Dakchau it was raining. The rain kept up, so a warm fireplace at Goyom was very inviting, and that was the end of the third day. Here’s some photos:

Jiri – Gokyo Nepal Trek Shivalaya Photos

The first day of the 100-mile Jiri-Gokyo Everest views trek was a tough three mountains rollercoaster, with lots of steep inclines and declines; I think over the highest peak in the first photo: in the left hand corner as viewed.

Shivalaya was reached around lunchtime, and the woman in the fourth photo provided a free tea. The day’s hike ended by torchlight in Bhandar after dark. There were lots of ‘namaste’ greetings along the way. Here’s some photos:

Kathmandu and Jiri Nepal Photos

It was late September 2009 when I flew into Kathmandu, Nepal. I spent a couple of days in the city before heading down to Jiri to begin a week-long trek to Gokyo Ri for Everest views in the Everest (Sagarmatha) National Park. Here’s some photos from Kathmandu (first 4) and Jiri (last 3):
