I’m pleased to announce that our photography trips have been well received by American Express and that they have joined us as a partner. Our two remaining ‘Mountain Kingdoms of Yunnan’ trips in Northwest Yunnan for 2011 will serve AMEX Centurion card members. We will, of course, continue to run many trips for non AMEX members.
We’ll be finalizing our 2012 trip schedule in July. We are planning for at least one trip next year from Lhasa to Mt. Everest Base Camp. This stunning itinerary to the roof of the world offers views of the 8,000 metre peaks of Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu, and Everest itself, along the way. We will also explore amazing monasteries and holy lakes that in themselves offer fantastic photo opportunities.
