Mountain Mind 2015: Three Journeys

Earthquake update:
The Khumbu was affected, but they are rebuilding and my friends there say we will still be able to do the Everest Luxury Lodges Trek.
The Great Himalaya Trail West trek goes through areas which fortunately were not affected.

The earthquakes have been devastating for many of my friends. I am raising money so when I go to Nepal in September I can bring the donations directly to the people who most need it. I am doing this in collaboration with Clear View Project so donations are tax deductible. If you would like to donate, contact me directly for more details (click on “Contact Bob” at bottom of this page).

Relaxing:
Everest Luxury Lodges

Stroll through the Everest region, staying at Yeti Mountain Homes lodges. Practice meditation and qigong in comfort (hot water, electric blankets & great food!) while receiving inspiration from
the spectacular mountain settings.

September 28th - October 21st
$4599

Challenging:
Great Himalaya Trail West

For experienced trekkers only!
Traverse the highest feasible trail over many 5000m passes in remote, rugged territory: from Rara Lake in the West through Dolpo and Mugu to the Bon temples and Buddhist Monasteries of Shey and Phoksumdo. Then cross more passes to the Kali Gandaki of Mustang.

Dates TBA: late October/November/December

Rigorous:
Khumbu High Passes

Tent camping and rustic lodges, hiking through the Rowalling valley over the glaciers of the Tashi Lapsta pass into the Everest region. Visit the border with Tibet on the flanks of 8000m Cho Oyu, then cross the Renjo La to Gokyo Lakes for incredible views of Everest.

Cancelled due to earthquake.
Sadly, the second quake hit this area very hard.
