The following images were captured during an expedition through the region of Langtang – Nepal, where the purpose of my journey was to attempt a summit of Naya Kanga Peak (5846m) found in the heart of Langtang Nation Park.
The selected images have been chosen by myself to feature as an exclusive B&W Fine-print collection – ‘Tales Of Langtang’.
These photographs tell the tale behind the scenes of the expedition, they share the essence of the unique people who call these mountains their home, they depict the purity and hardships of life at altitude and highlight the true spirit of the Himalayas through my own eyes.
1/12 – ROUTINE
“Be mindful of others, be kind, understand that there are profound differences in how we choose to live our lives, and realise that some do not always have that choice”.
2/12 – ALTRUISM
3/12 – ACCEPTANCE
“What I can tell you about the people I met throughout my time in Nepal and specifically Langtang is that they are some of the kindest and least prejudice people I have ever met, everywhere I went I was met with smiling faces and humbleness. The western world could certainly learn a lot from how these people approach daily life and how they welcome others into it.”
4/12 – RELIGION
5/12 – RESILIENCE
6/12 – FAITH
7/12 – UNION
8/12 – PEACE
9/12 – POWER
“The yak are a primary resource for the mountainous people of Nepal and Tibet. A true gem of the Himalaya used for their strength and resilience to altitude, to transport goods, for their wool, milk and even their dung for fuel in household stoves”.

11/12 – TRANQUILITY
