      I slept under the face of Kailash in 1987. Out in the open on a summer’s night , sheltering behind a rock under a thermal blanket stunned by the beauty of the stars in the sky. We stayed up most of the night trying to get a great moonlit shot of the mountain face. A daytime shot (mountain in the background, me standing by the rock, nomad and animals lumbering by in the foreground) was made into a poster and sold in Nepal. Your photos bring back all the memories and made me get out my travel diary!

      Hi Brugle…

      It sounds like a very magical night back in 1987! Kailash is a special place, no doubt.

      Thanks for the sound!
