The Himalaya stretch as far as the eye can see north of Kathmandu, east and west along the Nepal-China border.
Our good fortune included clear skies and mesmerizing views from our Yeti Airlines flights, one hundred miles in each direction from Kathmandu, and south of the range.
I was able to photograph seven of the fourteen over-8,000-meter-tall peaks, including Sagarmatha (Mt. Everest), the most revered of them all.
Most of us will never set foot on the slopes of these giants, but seeing them in all their majesty was an incredible highlight of our trip and absolutely unforgettable.
