World Travel : Trip 090 : Nepal, Island Peak Trek : Days leading up to 6189m/20275ft Summit Attempt
Video/Movie clip taken on a 24 trekking day trip to the Himalayan Mountains in Nepal, Southern Asia, in April 2010. The ultimate aim of this trip was to summit a 6000m/20000ft Mountain called Island Peak. As you can see from the Movie, much to my great satisfaction, after a long 8 hour climb starting off in complete darkness, this was eventually achieved!! There were many fine trekking days leading up to the summit attempt and I have tried to include in this Movie Clip some of the most memorable of them, including : The Village & Monastary at Tengboche, stunning after overnight snow. Close up views of Mt Everest from the summit of 5545m Kala Pattar. Island Peak Base Camp and climbing equipment check and training.
