  • An incredible Journey
    July 1st 2013

    So inspired was he by the experience of documenting the incredible journey of three elephants and their mahouts over the varied landscape of Nepal, “a few photographs” became the basis for a feature film and a London photography exhibition.

    March 16th 1964

    Charming, brash and truly insightful, this article written by Col. Jimmy Roberts, details his experience as the founder of Mountain Travel, the first trekking company in Nepal that began operations in 1964. Roberts candidly explains early expeditions in India and Tibet as a young Gurkha Officer in the British Army stationed on the Subcontinent.
