    Hi Harry – have you been to the top of Ama Dablam? It is an amazing shape. Is that a patchwork of fields in the foreground?

    Hi Jim, no I have not climbed her yet, but do want to. Yep, these are fields, cut out on teh steep slopes!

    Hello again Harry – Ama Dablam looks really incredible. I had a look on the web, and the site of Camp3 looks truly incredible: http://www.mounteverest.net/news.php?news=15299 – it looks almost vertical! I\'m planning on walking the Snowdon Horseshoe walk this coming Monday, and am a bit nervous about walking along the Crib Gogh ridge – looking at what you get up to puts it into perspective a bit!

The story behind "Phortse town and Ama Dablam in Khumbu Valley, Nepal"

Phortse is one of the small towns framing the wonderful Khumbu Valley in Nepal, the gateway to Everest. No 4 lane roads, actually no roads at all :)

Much lower than Everest, but much more prominent is the mountain named Ama Dablam in the back, one of the most beautiful ones on earth.
