TRAVEL

Over the last fifteen years, I have developed a passion for exploring ancient civilizations of the world, especially the Himalayas, where I have trekked and photographed extensively. I have shared my journeys with public presentations and photo exhibits.

Travel is a discovery and often a transforming experience. During our journey, we will immerse ourselves in the local culture, visit sacred places and include meditation times for those of you who would like it. There will be plenty of opportunities to photograph. Learn more about photography.

In 2016, I had the pleasure to lead a group on a Bhutanese journey. New in 2017, I offer a tour and a trek in Sikkim, an amazing former kingdom tucked between Nepal and Bhutan. October/November

-Nepal: trekking the Manaslu Balcony

The Manaslu balcony is located in the Gurung region. Date TBD

The Gurung area of Nepal is located in central Nepal, west of Katmandu. We will trek through typical Nepalese landscapes filled with terraces, forests, villages and will enjoy spectacular views on the mountains ranges around: Manaslu, Annapurnas, Buddha Himal, Ganesh Himal.

We will start from Gorkha. Our trek, going through this less touristy area, will allow us to bring some support to the local population, very much hurt by the earthquake last year. We will camp for 10 nights. A local guide will accompany us. Local porters and a cooking team will also be part of our team.

The last day in Katmandu will be dedicated to visiting cultural sites.

This trek has been organized in collaboration with my long time agent, Ashok Basnyat, based in Katmandu.
