Sikkim, India

In March 2009 I had an opportunity to take a trek to Goeche-la, the pass leading to the world’s 3rd tallest mountain, Kanchenjunga.  Connie, myself, our guide, a cook, 3 cooks assistants, a dzo (domesticated yak) herder and 3 dzos made the 8 day trek to the past.  The trip was humbling and eye-opening as I was alternatively amazed by the scenery, the people of the mountains, and the contradictions inherent in industrial tourism in the Himalayas (and indeed, around the world).
