    Also called Mount Chomolungma - is the highest mountain on Earth, and the highest point on the Earth: 8,848 meters (29,029 ft). It is part of the Himalayan range in Asia, being located on the border between Sagarmatha Zone, Nepal and Tibet, China.

    Expeditions trek to the Rongbuk Glacier, setting up Base Camp at 5,180 m (16,990 ft) on gravel plain just below the glacier. Just before leaving, a ceremony dedicated to Goddess Chomolungma for protection in climbing the summit, is performed. Everyone puts their equipment (such as ice axes, harnesses, crampons, and candy) next to the altar so that they'll be blessed with good fortune.

    The images I took represent this beautiful part of the world just before the earthquake. Prayer flags or Wind Horses are spread all around the Himalayas.
