Artist's Description

This was the culmination of my trek in 07. Having succumbed to one of the worst headaches ever on my previous day’s attempt at climbing Kala Pathar, I had the choice of going to base camp or climbing Kala Pathar 5550m. Naturally I chose the highest point and also one of the best views from which to ogle at the beauty of Mt Everest.

These are three images merged in Photoshop.

From the top of Kalar Pathar, the towering face of Pumo Ri 7165m is the closest peak on the left. Across the valley is Lingtren, Khumbutse, Changtse and then in all her might and glory, Mt Everest aka Chomolungma 8850m and her sister Nuptse 7861m. (Nuptse looks taller because she is closer) The Khumbu Glacier falls down the Western Cwm and is joined further down the valley by the Changri Shar and Changri Nup Glaciers on the right of the photo. Everest base camp is just above the point on the black ridge behind the glacial lake.
