In this photo essay photographer Jay Farbman captures stark images from the 2000 Himalayan Trek, a five-day trail run in one of the world’s most spectacular settings. The 2001 race will start on November 4 at 7:00 a.m. in Darjeeling, India. Daily stages of 24, 20, 26, 13 and 17 miles are run mostly on trails. Views of Mounts Everest, Kanchenjunga, Makalu, Lhotse and mountains in five countries can be seen. All food, lodging, aid stations, and transportation will be provided from November 2 through 9.
