Photograps 1999


When I was a teenager, I was bitten by a mountain hiking bug. After climbing Mt.Blanc (4810 m.) in the year 1995 I felt the desire to experience altitude above 6000 m. and see the roof of the world. I packed my tent and trekking boots and hit the road by land to India and Nepal. There I trekked to Anapurna Base Camp (ABC) and Mt. Everest BC for almost 2 weeks (one way) trekking from Jiri (the village where a bus can not go any further) to the glacier from which expeditions leave to the Chomolungma (the Tibetan name of Mt.Everest). This is the trekking during, which one of my cameras (Praktika BX20s) stopped working due to a mechanical malfunction and in my second camera (Olympus mju II) the buttery went flat. As a result, I was going back from EBC and carried 2 cameras, that I was not able to use. Despite this, that trip was an inspiration to traveling photography and definitely I was bitten by photography bug.
As for the crossing the altitude, unfortunately I have not stepped over the 6000m. due to some logistic issues and the highest point I reached was the pick Kala Patter 5545 m. asl.
