Ever fancied getting up-close-and-personal with Mount Everest?
There's an idea...maybe the wife and I could save up and make it a joint...ahem...21st! I'd be keen to see those photies, Dave.
Here you go
Flew to Qatar and then on to Kathmandu, had a couple of days exploring, Then flew to Lukla (scariest airport in the world... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DqgZvb37NX0 )
Then walked thro Namche and turned "left" up to Gokyo, Then after climbing Gokyo Ri crossed the Cho La pass and on up to Gorak Shep. Climbed Kala Pattar and then walked to Base Camp.
Took 4 days to get back to Lukla and then had 3 days in Kathmandu drinking beer and eating pizza in either "Fire & Ice" or "Rum Doodle"

These look fantastic, although the full sized images don't seem to want to load for me at the mo
Omg, omg, I've just found the climbers on Lhotse...there's a whole line of them! Happy hunting
