Holy crap cold. As much as I enjoy hiking, I think I'll give those particular excursions a very wide berth. Just reading your descriptions has given me a severe case of the heebie jeebies, and heights don't even bother me all that much (although falling from one certainly would).

What a fascinating trip, thanks for taking the time to post your adventures.

Thanks Catcrazyaf and Melnq8. Reading these replies has almost made climbing the 900 meters of steep rock at the Besseggen (swearing the whole way) worth it!

Great report, cold! As a resolute acrophobe, I can only read a little at a time, and peek out at the photos through my fingers, which are covering my face.

Let me commend you and your wife on providing such wonderful and unforgettable travel experiences for your children over the years! Their lives are richer as a result. We're all looking forward to hearing about your next great adventure.

Your report was wonderful.
And your wife is an effing saint.

I've suggested we renew our vows in Namche Bazaar.
