TRAVEL

Over the last eighteen years, my curiosity for the world has led me to explore different continents and ancient civilizations, especially the Himalayas, where I have trekked and photographed extensively. Eager to educate people about different parts of the world, I am enjoying following my journeys with public presentations and photo exhibits.

Travel is a discovery and often a transforming experience for our own life. 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.

-Nepal: Trekking the Manaslu Balcony

The Manaslu balcony is located in the Gurung region. November 2017.

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 2015 earthquake . 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.
