Back 2 Nepal I have decided to go back to Nepal to attempt the following:-
• Climb Mera Peak (6,476m) and Island Peak (6,189m)
• Trek in the mountain wilderness of the Upper Hongu Valley and cross the challenging (and technical) Amphu Labsta Pass (5,780m)
• Trek through the Everest Region seeing the world’s six or so highest peaks.
Of the 29 days (21st Oct to 18th Nov 2012) some 21 nights will be spent in a tent so upgrading my sleeping bag will be essential as will be Spantik boots and warm gloves.
This is one of Nepal’s finest and most challenging mountain journeys – the scenery will be magic.
The last time I was in Nepal was in 2008 (do the years not fly past?) and again I would like (if I can?) to record my progress on my blog.
Best wishes, Fraser.
