Trekking in Nepal
7 months ago

In October and November I trekked for 20 days on the Manaslu and Annapurna circuits, including a side trip to Tilicho Lake. (Manaslu is the eighth-highest mountain in the world.) I was with a group of 10 members of the Alpine Club of Canada, and we were supported by Peak Promotions of Nepal.

I took my K-5 and 15, 21, 35, and 70 Limited lenses. All my gear worked well, through freezing cold, high humidity (monsoon), high elevation (5,400 m), and much dust. I would take the same kit again, except the 40 instead of the 35, since I did hardly any macro photography, and the 40 is advantageous for weight, space, and focus speed, without compromise in image quality. Or maybe the 20 – 40 Limited zoom instead of the 21 and 40, to gain a weather-sealed option.

These landscapes are in chronological order, with the lens stated in parentheses.

Edit: the full-resolution images are not displayed in this post because of a conflict between Photobucket and dpreview. They are at the following urls, which I hope work for you.
