Protect Us by AlisterBenn

Trekking in then Himalaya a wonderful experience – massive mountains, friendly people, great food and thin air. The perfect recipe for a good time (in my book anyway!)

Ama Dablam is a beautiful mountain and hangs over much of the trek up to Everest Base Camp from the south (Nepal) side.

The trail is punctuated by many of these Tibetan Stuppas – little shrines of worship, decorated with stones carved with the repetitive Om Mani Padmi Hum. This shot by moonlight illuminated for me a beautiful experience of solitude and reflection.
