jocelynchavy Wish to be there again ! Viewing the giants of #himalayas #khumbu #Nepal from Renjo La, a very high pass in front of #everest 8850 meters and #makalu (on the right) 8481 meters.
A chapter in my new book #treksenhimalaya describes this #remote and #wonderful place.

jijiyana_layola Throwback Gokyo Ri, Everest region, Nepal

Two suspension bridges on your way to Gokyo Ri but you will only cross the higher one. This is actually the same route that goes to EBC but somewhere in the middle, there will be a junction in which the one to the right is towards EBC while the the one on the left goes to Gokyo. This is the same bridge that's featured in this year's Everest movie.. This part of the trek is actually between Phakding (2610m) and Namche Bazaar (3440m); the distance is about 11.3km. To me, this is the hardest part of the trek, with the most elevation. And right after crossing the bridge is a non stop steep slopes climb until Namche Bazaar... And this is the last point where you can still see lots of greenery. As you go up, well, it will still be green, but the plants become smaller and smaller and then only moss... That's the thing I like about alpine trek, pemandangan kau tiada halangan~
I had AMS in Namche bazaar; had a throbbing headache and fatigue like my body was about to shut down. That was the most uncomfortable feeling ever. I brought some dexamethasone but found that I didnt have enough for AMS dose. So I took Diamox instead.. The ironic thing is you have to adequately hydrate urself but with Diamox in my blood, pastilah balik2 pi tandas malam tu. And at low season, they switched off the water pump dan menunggu lah aku dalam gelap dan dingin malam sampai botol hikmat terisi penoh dengan air.. Alhamdulillah that was the only time I had AMS and from thereafter, hari2 aku amek one dose Diamox although actually it should be 3 doses per day. Kalo 3 doses, di alpine route yang luas terbentang, where would I go if I need to hurm... take a leak??? hahaha sukorla it worked with just one dose~

ivo_dos_santos A Judoka earning their Black Belt is always a milestone event.
Tonight I was able to present Michael Veng with his.
Michael has only been training with us for less than a year but is a lifelong Judoka (11 years in his brown belt!) who has been a pleasure to work with since day 1.
Congratulations Michael, it was an honour to be the one to present you with your belt tonight.
