Nepal

Khumbu Valley portfolio In November 2008 I realised a lifetime ambition to visit the Khumbu Valley in Nepal. Home to the Sherpa people and of the world's highest mountain, Everest.

My friend Paul and I booked an organised trek for the trip of a lifetime. It was every bit as spectacular as I'd always imagined. Although the mountain scenery will always stay with me, it was the Sherpa people who really made the trip. They are so happy and friendly. Always smiling, but many of them have so little.I don't think I'll ever forget my mate arm wrestling our sirdar for the last banana, or teaching the sherpas how to play dominoes.
