Dream Mountain

Cholatse, a technical 21,130ft/6,446m peak in the heart of the Everest region of Solukhumbu, Nepal, was our "dream mountain." It is the centerpiece of "Dream Mountain," an award-winning film that follows world-class mountaineer Pasang Lhamu Sherpa Akita, on a climb at a pivotal crux of her life and career. Images in this collection were created over five years, working in Nepal and while leading the Dream Mountain project as a climber, executive producer and co- expedition photographer. These photographs offer a passionate portrait of the mountain, as well as glimpses of mountaineering and traditional culture.
