Team CMI is now preparing for 3 weeks hiking around Manaslu.

We will climb to base camp and reach 17,000 feet.  October 2016 before heading over the Larkya La (pass).   Manaslu is the eighth highest mountain in the world reaching 8,163 metres (26,781 ft) above sea level. It is located in the a part of the Nepalese Himalayas known as the Mansiri Himal.  Manaslu means “mountain of the spirit” in Nepalese comes from the Sanskrit word manasa, meaning “intellect” or “soul”.  Manaslu was first climbed on May 9, 1956 by Toshio Imanishi.  Our expedition will start a few kilometres from the epicentre of the 2015 earthquake that devastated much of the country.

White Beach Phuket

Time for 10 days holiday by the sea on the island of Phuket.  Will be in residence from August 2 through August 12 then back to our energy and metals endeavours from our HQ in Phonm Penh.

Andaman White Beach Resort

White Beach Phuket – Looks like a great beach for sunrise and sunset workout and meditation.

This was a fantastic resort.  Not quite 5 star but very comfortable and quiet enough.  The beach is the real asset and is not accessible except from the resort.  The most memorable event was Qi Gong on the beach at 0500 to a thundering surf and a wild tropical storm lashing the beach with wind and rain. Strongly recommended. Planning to return on the way back from Manaslu in Nepal.
