After twelve days in the Himalayas and many thousands of units of elevation change, I have successfully returned to the civilized world (read about the trek here if you prefer words to pictures).
I saw yaks, goats, dogs, horses, trekkers from all over the world, and an absurd amount of mountains (you almost take the incredible landscapes for granted after a week – it’s nonstop mind-blowingness).
No matter how expertly composed the photos of a place may be, nothing comes close to seeing things for yourself. Despite my only being to share what I saw via tiny images on the tiny screen in front of you (where you should probably have work-related stuff instead), I have done my best to paint a picture of what can be expected (a lot of mountains).
These are my favorite images from my first (and not my last) trip to the tallest mountains on Earth.
If you have any questions about a specific photo (or are interested in seeing more), then leave a comment below.
