Some promised Hasselblad XPan photos  from the remote trekking route Tumlingtar-Lukla.
The route follows – Salpa Bhanjyang – Gudel – Bung – Surki La – Sibuje – Panggom La – Panggom – Kharikola and then up to the usual trekking way to the Everest.

It’s a trek on the footprints of Mr. Tilman. He done the first “Explorer Cross” from east to west and was searching the entrance into the Everest valley with the Dudh Koshi, starting in the eastern flatlands of the Himalaya.
