Namaste and Merry Christmas to Friends of The Mountain Company
As another Autumn trekking season in the Himalaya draws to a close highlights from the last few months include more summits of Mera Peak; another full Snowman traverse; crossing Lumba Sumba pass into Makalu region (see photo above); crossing French and Dhampus passes on Dhaulagiri Circuit and crossing Mirgin La on Kanchenjunga Circuit.
In early October the Himalaya experienced heavy rainfall and snowfall from Cyclone Phailin. While this poor weather curtailed our Kanchenjunga to Makalu and Everest High Passes treks luckily our other groups were able to complete their treks as planned.
To find out how our Autumn groups fared in more detail please read the Trip Reports below.
Our 2014 trips have now all been finalised on The Mountain Company's website. Please also take a look at the column on the left of this newsletter for the list of Western led treks.
We would like to take this opportunity to wish you a merry Christmas and a very happy New Year from everyone at The Mountain Company.
We look forward to seeing you in the Himalaya at some point in 2014. Trek on!
