The view that makes it all worth while. Annapurna Sanctuary, a 360-degree panorama with nine summits reaching 23,000 feet (7200 m).
Michael Palin - Himalaya'Having sex?'

He nods knowingly. It happened to a climber he knew on one of his Everest expeditions.

'He had sex with many different kind of women in the Himalaya.'

He pauses until all heads are turned in his direction.

'He was the one who died on that expedition.'

As there has been absolutely no question of my having sex on Annapurna, the gods seem to be positively smiling. For once the sunset is not lost in the mist, and at six o'clock, 40 or 50 people from all over the world gather to watch the light show on the peaks of Machhapuchhre. A small act of homage to the Himalaya.
