Photographer's Note

Gauri Sankar (7,134 m)es una montaña en el Himalaya , el segundo pico más alto de la Himal Rolwaling , detrás de Melungtse (7,181 m). The name comes from Sanskrit for the Goddess and her Consort , denoting the sacred regard to which is afforded it by the peoples of Tibet and Nepal. El nombre viene del sánscrito de la Diosa y su consorte, que denota la relación sagrada a la que se le brinde a los pueblos de Tíbet y Nepal.

Gauri Sankar se encuentra cerca del borde occidental de la Himal Rolwaling, a unos 100 kilómetros (62 millas) al noreste de Katmandú .

La montaña tiene dos cumbres, la norte (superior) la cumbre que se llama Shankar (una manifestación de Shiva) y la cumbre sur se llama Gauri (una manifestación de la consorte de Shiva).

Primera ascensión: 8 de Mayo de 1979, por John Roskelley y el sherpa Dorje.

Localización: Nepal - China (Tibet)

Uno de mis objetivos en este viaje, era ver el Monte Everest, y fue fácil conseguirlo, un viaje en avioneta desde Kathmandu hasta las proximidades de la montaña más alta del mundo. Un viaje de una hora (ida y vuelta) a cambio de 130 euros. La verdad es que me decepcionó un poco, la ruta era por el centro del valle, bastante alejados de las montañas. En esta imagen muestro esta atractiva montaña, su cercanía es gracias al zoom, pues su visión era mucho más lejana. No era fácil conseguir una buena imagen, aunque nos aseguraron que las ventanas de la avioneta estaban limpias, no era así, opacas y rayadas, y cuando había un hueco algo nítido, a veces hacía un efecto arco iris, esto último pasaba hasta en la cabina de los pilotos.

En dos WS, otras perspectivas.

Gauri Sankar lies near the western edge of the Rolwaling Himal, about 100 kilometres (62 mi) northeast of Kathmandu.

The mountain has two summits, the northern (higher) summit being called Shankar (a manifestation of Shiva) and the southern summit being called Gauri (a manifestation of Shiva's consort).

First ascent May 8, 1979 by John Roskelley and Dorje Sherpa.

Location: Nepal - China (Tibet)

One of my goals on this trip was to see Mount Everest, and was easy to achieve, a trip by plane from Kathmandu to the vicinity of the highest mountain in the world. A one-hour (round trip) in exchange for 130 euros. The truth is that I was a little disappointed, the route was through the center of the valley, well away from the mountains. This picture shows the attractive mountain, their closeness is due to zoom, because his vision was much more distant. It was not easy to get a good picture, but assured us that the windows of the aircraft were clean, it was so dull and scratched, and when there was a gap somewhat sharp, sometimes made ​​a rainbow effect, the latter went up in cockpit.

Two WS with other perspectives.
