Photographer's Note

The Everest Base Camp is situated at 5200m. This is the camp on the chinese side. There is another one on the nepalese side.

The site has quite a few permanent tents for tourists and mountainers, where you can actually have a meal, a cup of tea, some rest or even spend the night. You can even send your postcards from the highest post office in the world.

A few meters away, after a guard house, you can find the real base camp (the one on the picture), where you can find the expeditions tents. Despite the apparent nice weather during my visit, there wasn't any attempt due to the fact that some bad weather was expected in the next days.

The two days I spent there will remind forever in my mind !! All the way in car to the Rongphu monastery, and then the walk up to the base camp was extraordinary scenery !!

Here the Everest is named "Qomolangma", which means in Tibetan "Goddess Mother of the Universe"
