EBC Trail, The Himalayas, Nepal.

As you descend leaving Namche Bazaar, the well-worn EBC trail becomes lusher and greener. The yaks disappear and are replaced by bullocks.  The harsh rock strewn terrain above 4000 metres is replaced by lush rainforest, tall trees and fast running icy rivers. P9230110.jpg

Track to Wellington Falls on Mt Kunanyi. Hobart.

“There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
 There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
 There is society, where none intrudes,
 By the deep Sea, and music in its roar:
 I love not Man the less, but Nature more,
 From these our interviews, in which I steal
 From all I may be, or have been before,
 To mingle with the Universe, and feel
 What I can ne’er express, yet cannot all conceal.”―Byron, Childe Harold's PilgrimageDSC02347.jpg
