In April 2022 I went to Nepal walked to Mount Everest Basecamp:
12 days. 130 kilometers. 3,784 meters in altitude.
The Khumbu Trek is visited by thousands of tourists every year. Stunning nature and the highest mountains in the world are reasons enough to take on the challenge of this ambitious hike. And who doesn’t want to snap a photo at the foot of the famous Mount Everest?
But what happens left and right of the route? Who are the locals you meet along the way? What is the view like from a little village situated at an altitude of over 4,000 meters? Who provides lodging for all the tourists? Who carries the bags and beverages? And who are the sherpas and rais that guide you all the way up?
I wanted to answer the questions above with my pictures: The beautiful landscape of the Khumbu area combined with a different perspective of the trek. Photography that looks along trails.
The results can be seen in my photo exhibtion:
At Kulturkiosk Stuttgart (Lazarettstr. 5, 70182 Stuttgart)
December 7th - 11th (everyday starting at 15h)
I also created a photo-book with more than 140 pages.
The very limited book will be launched at a little event as part of the exhibition on friday december 9th starting at 19h.
