I've been to Tibet three times— once in June of 2005, again September of 2007, and finally in September of 2015. Each trip lasted three weeks. Here you'll find a selection of my favorite pictures from my 2005 and 2007 trips. The pictures taken in 2005 were taken with the Canon G6. In 2007 I hauled a professional SLR camera, the Canon 5D, to Mt. Kailash, the Everest Base Camp, and around Lhasa.

In 2015 I carried a GoPro mounted on a gimbal around Mt Kailash. I used that footage and other stills to make a 25-minute movie about the trip.


You are welcome to read an updated journal of my 2005 trip around Mt Kailash.

If you are curious to learn more about Mt. Kailash, I’ve typed in an excerpt from Steven Batchelor’s out-of-print Tibet Guide.

You can view each picture in a conventional 800 pixel-wide size or in a larger 1400 pixel size. Every picture has a caption.

There are four sections:
