Thanks to Spike Sellers for this photo of the top section of Curved Ridge, taken today. The snow encrustations in the background are of Crowberry Tower. The weather was fine, but breezy and very cold.

Point Five detail. I doubt if the material is very well bonded. A few teams were out valiantly ploughing deep furrows. One on Tower Ridge, another going towards No 2 Gully and plenty of tracks on Ledge Route.
Winds in excess of 100 mph and plentiful rain forecast over the next couple of days. Maybe easing off at the weekend and a definite trend towards snow on the tops.
Finally home from our short trekking holiday in Nepal. Below are a few photos to give an idea of our experience. Our whole trip was very well organised by Himalayan Guides They even set up trips to Delhi and Taj Mahal and the Red Fort at Agra. I cannot recommend them more highly and would use them again without question. Also, rather than try to offer advice on trekking projects and problems which might surface, just read the extremely detailed Lonely Planet – Trekking in Nepal
Even if you are trekking alone, please consider using porters, as they make such a big difference.
Just arrived in Kathmandu Namaste and the weather is very fine.
A holiday with friends will take us to the Langtang Valley for twelve days trekking and some simple peaks hopefully. More to follow on our return.
We have employed Himalayan Guides to organise this small trip for four of us and so far the service has been very satisfactory and included, airport transfers, a good hotel and various sight-seeing trips in this bustling capital of Nepal.
