Everest from Rongbuk after snow
Everest, North side.

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.

...for whom this is just a pile of rock but I guess there are even such folks out there :-) But surely for us here this is sacred place and view! Fantastic photo, thanks for sharing!
