Himalaya 1981/2

The Everest massif as seen from Tengboche Monastery

                   These black and white pictures were taken with Rollei compact camera on
                   Ilford FP4 film which I processed at home after the five week trek. I trekked
                   from the foothills up to the summit of Kala Patthar at 5,545 m (18,192 ft).
                   This gave close views of Everest, Khumbu Glacier and base camp area. We
                   flew back to Kathmandu city from Lukla airstrip situated at 2,860 metres (9,383 ft),

One of the many families encountered in a foothills village.
