Nepal: Solu-Khumbu and Kathmandu | all rights © Christian Hahn

All photos were taken during a 4 week trip to the Solu-Khumbu region of Nepal in December of 2009. A great number of articles have been published in the past weeks and days with the anniversary of Tenzing’s and Hillary’s first ascent of Everest coming up tomorrow and the madness that’s happening on this mountain 60 years later. In spite of the enormous changes – good and bad – that have taken place in Nepal and especially in the Khumbu region in the past 30 years, it remains one of the world’s poorest countries. But as far as the genuine kindness of its people, the culture and the landscape are concerned, Nepal is one of the greatest countries that I have seen. For more mountain photos from the region, also please look at one of my earlier posts. All images copyright: Christian Hahn
