Abode of the Gods
The definition of the word Himalaya is “the abode of the gods”. It’s easy to appreciate the name when standing at 26,000’ watching the sun come up! We were leaving Camp IV on our summit bid for 28,250’ Kangchenjunga when I snapped this photo. Kangchenjunga is the third highest peak in the world, situated on the eastern border of Nepal. We made our attempt on the Yalung Face in 1995.
I am Dave McNally, and I travel the world to paint and hike. Here are some of my experiences.
