Throwback to Nepal a year ago when I was trekking through the Himalayas with @lfong along the Annapurna Circuit. It was only my 2nd trek and sure enough, was difficult through the different terrain and steep switchbacks, but in the end always rewarded with views that were out of this world. We were supposed to go Everest Base Camp this month but due to unforeseen personal circumstances I couldn't make it in time. @lfong I hope you'll have a blast in Nepal and keep those pics comin'! •

In their search for “devil’s gold,” as they call it, about 300 miners make a daily climb two miles up Kawah Ijen Volcano at 9183 ft.(2799m), then head downward more than 900 yards into the volcano, where the sulfur crystals form. Most work without any protection in darkness and stifling heat—all the while breathing sulfurous gas that burns their lungs and makes tears stream from their eyes. To retrieve the sulfur, they attack it with a metal pole to break it into slabs, then make the reverse journey bearing reed baskets that weigh 150 to 200 pounds. All this for about five dollars a day—ten if they’re able to do it twice, their average life expectancy barely exceeds 50 years - Coburn Dukehart #kawahijen #ijen #yourshotphotographer #iphonesia #shotoniphone #apple #natgeoyourshot #natgeo #natgeotravel #thephotosociety #sulphur #mining #vscodaily #vsco #vscocam #instagood #wanderlust #welltraveled #lonelyplanet #epic #vscomania #volcano #photooftheday #documentaryphotography
