In 1996 we travelled down the Himalayas, from Lhasa in Tibet at 11,000 feet, over passes 17,000 feet high, down to Dakar in Bangladesh just a few feet above sea level.  Along the way passed Mount Everest, spent time in Katmandu in Nepal and stopped for tea in Darjeeling in India.  Here are some pictures from the journey.
