Our very own intrepid traveller John Cross is our speaker this coming Monday with his talk about Nepal.
John has been travelling regularly to Nepal since 1992. He climbed Island peak (6,210 Metres) and a number of minor peaks in the Everest region in 1992.
In 2011 he attempted Mera Peak (6,461 Metres) being beaten back by the weather 90 Metres from the summit. In between he passed through Kathmandu 4 times on his way, to and from, Mt Kailash in Tibet (2007) and the Laya trek in Bhutan (2008).
This talk covers the ancient traditions and mysteries of this unique Himalayan Kingdom and the wonders of the highest mountain range in the world.
