Travels in Nepal # 38 Ama Dablam
On my trek in the Himalayas I did not get an exceptional view of Mt Everest. Sure, it was there sticking up above several other nearer peaks, but at no stage on the trek was it an impressive peak. Not from my perspective anyway. Despite that I was just happy to have been in the vicinity and to have seen the world’s tallest mountain up close.
Ama Dablam, nearby, however, was as spectacular as anything I have ever seen. This towering peak was prominent above us in the latter stages of the climb, and a constant reminder of the ruggedness of these mountains on the way down. We had picture perfect views from many vantage points. The weather on our descent was unbelievable.
And the photos I took are a constant reminder of the magnificence of this country.
I have a daily reminder of this great peak every time I fire up my computer. One of the shots similar to the one above is featured on my desktop. Other photos taken that day are highlighted on my screen saver programme. They are a constant reminder of the trek and the wonderful mountains of Nepal.
