| I made four trips to Nepal. In
November 1979, I did the Khumbu trek to Kala Pattar. In March/April
1994, I went to the base camps of Kangchenjunga; I also went on a
shorter hike near Annapurna. In October/November 1996, I climbed
Lobuche and Amadablam with Kathy Cosley and Mark Houston. In
April/May 2001, I attempted to climb Makalu with an expedition led
by Guy Cotter. The photos of this trip can be found
Motocycling is a great way to visit the valley and the hills around Kathmandu.
