Wednesday(16-11-2011):- Finally did the ultimate "Adrenaline Junkie Jump" by "Bungy-Jumping at the "Last Resort" in Nepal .The "Last Resort" is located about 100 Kms from Kathmandu, approx a three hour journey by a long and winding road amidst hills and the Bhote Khosi river..Bhote Kosi river bungy jumping has been described as the 'ultimate experience' in Bungy jumping ranked amongst the 10 best in the World in 2012.The valley is narrow with steep hillsides towering over 2000 metres (6600 ft) from the river.

Nepal Holiday to Climb Mera Peak Part 1 of 6 [09:34]
The holiday took place between Friday 15 April to Sunday 8 May. It was filmed using a Mino Flip HD camera and a similar JVC camera once the Flip stopped working (the last shot on the Flip is of the monk banging the drum). Both cameras eventually stopped working, but once they were brought back down to sea level they started working again. It was edited using Windows Live Movie Maker which is free with Windows7. It was edited down to 53 minutes from about 150 minutes. Details of the holiday from the website: Expedition Itinerary ( Every effort will be made to keep to the above itinerary, but as this is Adventure Travel in a remote mountain region, we cannot guarantee it. Weather conditions, road conditions, vehicle breakdowns and the health of climbers can all contribute to changes. The Expedition Leader and our local agent will try to ensure that the trip runs according to plan, but an easy going nature will be an asset!)

#4-SURVIVING IN TIBET-Survival Series [09:59]
Part 4 SURVIVAL IN TIBET-Survival Series This is for my friends in my group who are interested in survival. We couldn't release the film because our Nepali friends were in danger...shortly afterwards,King Dependra was assasinated and many our our Nepali friend's businesses were being attacked and targeted, because of association with Americans. There was a total media blackout in Nepal, dead bodies in the street, buried under the road downtown in Katmandu. That's why I waited until July 03, 2010...to release these videos. #4JOURNEY BACK TO NEPAL-Walking in cyclone high winds and penetrating bullets of rain, I turned my camera off for a while. The hillsides were pouring chocolate thick mud flows, which were between 2-4 feet deep. Had to take our hiking boots off and walk through the dangerous mud flows; making a survival chained link of human hands, just in case one of slipped and was swollowed alive. Rested in Zhangmu, this time we slept in a clean room, after complaining about our first visit. We continued on to the Friendship Bridge...the river separating Tibet from Nepal. When we arrived we had no papers to leave Tibet....it was a terrifying experience....
