Leaving Everest Base Camp. 5300 metres.

Rock and ice – the glacier is constantly on the move. The noise of crashing rocks and distant avalanches permeates the air. IMG_4576.jpg

I am an experienced trekker and hiker. I enjoy taking photographs and travelling. I prefer wilderness and remote places. Travel often as much as I can. Prefer off-season as less people around. Winter is always a great time. Happy to share local knowledge about the beautiful island of Tasmania. I support humanitarian and Human Rights causes and spend much of my time working pro-bono for and in developing countries.

  1. It was quite a dramatic place to be. The sporadic sounds of crashing rocks and ice, the deep rumble of the avalanches from the mountains around Everest. There was no wind that day so I assume these sounds were more apparent.


  2. The sounds were a powerful part of the experience. The glacier is constantly moving and collapsing. Both the glaciers and avalanches are more frequent due to a warming environment.
