Pete Shelley, Rick Dvorak, and I went to Nepal a few years ago to climb in the Himalayas and experience a different culture. I can't say enough good things about the trip. The people were remarkable, the peaks gigantic, and the culture was significantly different than small town Montana. We had great weather and were able to summit the trekking peak named Imja Tse (Island Peak, 20,315').

If you're in the area you must visit Toshi and Lopka at the Ama Dablam Lodge!
Pete brought tooth brushes to the school children at Periche.
