    Everytime I see a photo of Everest as beautiful as this one…I dream. Everest may be the one dream I do not accomplish in my lifetime and I am at peace with that. But I still dream……..

    U know what your photograps force me to think today — in bengali "Mone hoy baler chakri chere die, ekta bochka pithe nie berie pori!!!" (meaning, I thought of leaving the damn job I\'m doing & go out to places with a bag on my back). Thanks a lot for these beautiful pix!!!

Everest from Rongbuk Monastery

The story behind "Everest from Rongbuk Monastery"

About 8km from Basecamp and more than 25 from the summit of the world, the Chinese have built a hideous hotel. Next to the Rongbuk Monastery the red building stand out from the colourless surroundings as a sore on a clear skin.
They serve great noodles though and from the balcony the view is one of the best in the world as you can see above.

After a recent snowstorm the clouds parted and while the sun was already setting the Mother Goddess of the Earth revealed herself. Maybe just a damn high pile of rocks for others, a wonderful and spiritual place for me.
