Rupa’s 44-year life has been anything but easy. That said, the we met living with camels and horses (and their keepers) under an overpass beside the River in central, was a kind and gentle giant.
Great to be back here with @pedromcbride telling the story of the mighty, and immersed in a place of extremes: beauty and squalor, reverence and abuse, wealth and poverty, purity and pollution. Amazing, trying, and absolutely wonderful @eddiebauer @madhav108a @india_gram

Part of a #timelapse of the moon rising behind #Lhotse, #Imjatse (Island Peak), and other peaks near #Dingboche, #Khumbu, #Nepal. This is the same timelapse I used to create the star trails/moonrise image posted previously. Beautiful night in a beautiful place! #moonrise #liveyouradventure #travelstoke #stars

An exciting scene a few nights back with star trails and the moon rise from #Dingboche, #Khumbu, #Nepal. Amazing what happens when most of us are asleep! #liveyouradventure #travelstoke #startrails

The Milky Way lights up the night sky above #Cholatse and#Tawoche near the settlement of #Tukhla, #Khumbu, #Nepal. Always amazing to me to be reminded of how much light pollution we have in the west, and thus how much beauty we miss in the night sky. #liveyouradventure #travelstoke

Shooting a timelapse above the village of #Deboche tonight, watching #Everest and the south face of #Lhotse and #Nuptse turn crimson. While I sat, camera clicking away, I saw a dozen #danphe, the national bird of #Nepal, for musk deer, and I’m 50% certain I caught a glimpse of a snow leopard scuttling away through the rhododenron forest…not kidding.
Amazing evening, and I’m reminded of the #Skanda #Purana: “In a hundred ages of the gods, I cannot tell three of the glories of the #Himalaya. As the dew is dried by the morning sun, so are the sins of man at the sight of the Himalaya.” #magic #liveyouradventure #travelstoke

This #Kilimanjaro climb was my sixth on the mountain, but first time on the #Rongai Route. An incredible route, few people, and we opted to spend a couple nights acclimating here at #Mawenzi Tarn Camp. Beautiful camp and setting under brilliant stars and the serrated peak of Mawenzi. #liveyouradventure @eddiebauer #water @charitywater
