    Clockwise from top left: During their trip through the Himalayas, Denby Fawcett, Brett Jones and Janice Marsters roomed in lodges such as Paradise Lodge. Yaks are one of the main forms of transportation through the mountains. The group often feasted on the Nepali dish dal bhat, which is classic fare consisting of lentil soup, steamed white rice and fried vegetables. The trio often had to traverse narrow trails on their trip.
