    Do you only do climbing trips to this region or are photographic/exploaratory trips avaliable too?


    thanks for your email and comments on the website, much appreciated.
    Part of our climb is the 6-7 days trip from Kathmandu- Bacecamp, during which all the Nepal/Tibet images on the ExposedPlanet site were taken. You can sign up for just the trip to BC, which for 2007 costs $3500 for a full month program from KTM-KTM. Though not specifically a photo trip, I can tell you that I shot all images while being busy guiding as well, so you should have more time available! In the end it is the photographer who does the shooting…

  • Canon EOS 5D
  • 0.005 s (1/200) (1/200)

The story behind "Hellomoney! Street children begging in Tibet"

Hello Money? Hellomoney? Hellomoney!
The young children of Tibet usually learn these English words quite quickly, especially if there is any chance of tourists passing by, though not all are yet confident enough and hide behind the braver ones..

And why blame them, most families have no or little education, live of the few months that they can work the fields and on less than a US dollar per day. It always give me a strange feeling when I am taking clients to Everest, who pay several thousands of dollars for the expedition of which only a part is spent on the locals by using their yaks and staying in small villages like these for several days. Or is it good that that way people get to see images like these and find other ways to improve the situation?

Shot from a very low angle to enhance the greatness of these small people..
