Island Peak Summit Ridge
Recently started looking through @gopro
footage from Nepal. My camera didn't work in the cold temps near the summit of Island Peak but luckily caught some pictures from my GoPro cam. Happy to have some pics from a little higher up.
Just trying to imagine all of the mountain ranges in the back, hiding behind those clouds.
Reminiscing back to last Fall when we did the three passes trek in the Everest region of Nepal. 19 days, over 200km’s with three mountain passes above 5300m. We ate our body weight in dal baht and noodles, made some lifelong friends and passed hundreds of donkeys and yaks. All the Nepalese people were super friendly and very accommodating. Best of all there were views like this to be found everywhere. I would highly recommend this to everyone with a love of rugged outdoors.
What trek should I do next? Does anyone have any amazing stories from around the World?
The sun was shining bright when we started our day and just as we were nearing our lunch spot we could see it getting cloudy. We were in the warm cozy indoors of our lunch room at Deurali and the view from the glass windows was that of pouring rain. What we hoped was a passing shower actually continued even stronger with no sign of relief. Most of us deep down wanted to just call it a day (& not walk in the pouring rain at 2800m in near 0 temperatures) but our guide said we've got to march ahead and make it to our scheduled stop for the day - MBC (Machapuchare Base Camp)
With our spirits raised, our stomachs full, a guitar performance by our guide & a warm ginger lemon honey tea session, we hit the trail. We started walking in the rain and as we walked ahead we found ourselves in the midst of nowhere - a landscape I've only seen in my dreams and fantasies. There was no one else on the trail but the 8 of us, our guides and our porters. The rain was soon accompanied by the wind and as we went higher in altitude this rain solidified to hail & with the hard hitting wind this felt like thorns being thrown like darts on a board. We went even higher and this hail was now snow - it felt like confetti was dropping from the sky in abundance! The only 1 colour we saw was white. We could barely keep our eyes open while walking due to the wind + snow + hail. If all of this wasn't enough, we suddenly see an avalanche and the only thought in all our minds was - WHY DID WE DECIDE TO DO THIS IN THIS WEATHER. But none of us said it out loud. We powered through and through to finally make our way to MBC. More on what this mental and emotional journey was like, in the next post! #PostcardsFromTheWorld #LostMyHeartInNepal #MyNepalAdventure2018

🌟STOPPED BY A LOCAL PIZZA PLACE TODAY🌟
//TAG YOUR FRIEND WHO LIVE AROUND TINKUNEY AND LET THEM KNOW ABOUT THIS PLACE//
I always used to see this place on my way home but never had been here. So, thought of giving it a try and I’m glad that I did.
The pizza was average overall but I was quite amazed with their soft crust, amazing sauce spread, mix of two different cheese and the size of pizza. I did add some extra sausage and cheese toppings. How I wish the pieces of onions and capsicum were small! 😉
It’s good enough so if you live around Tinkuney do give it a try cause the price is reasonable and the taste is satisfying too.

A single plane flying over the iconic annapurna mountains of Nepal. I can just imagine how the view would look from up there in the sky, when standing on the ground was already an exilerating experience. Where is your most memorable experience while travelling?
