|Larry, Kathy, Tim, our guide Tashi, Mike and I.
Tashi told us later that his boss really doubted that
we’d be able to withstand the altitude!
|We bought and hung a prayer flag and wrote all our
family names on it. When the wind blows, it spreads
the prayers, sending love and harmony.
|Just a few cairns, lest you lose your way to the mountain.
We were very lucky – sometimes people get to this
point and still can’t see Everest because of weather.
|We did it!!!|
|Each sleeping spot in these little tents rents for
$300 USD per night in high season. Fortunately
we had slightly better (and cheaper) accommodations
in store for the evening.
|Pit toilets, really disgusting. These make American
National Park composting toilets look five star.
|This was out trip! We did fly a helicopter from Kathmandu
to Nyalam because of the landslide, but drove the
rest of the way.
