Ghunsa by Frank Smythe, 1931
|[ Sizes: Orig | Small | Thumb ]|
Ghunsa, the largest Sherpa village near Kangchenjunga.
Pphotographed by Frank Smythe in 1931.
This photo is from my copy of Smythe's book, The Kangchenjunga Adventure.
Compare with this 1899 photo by Vittorio Sella and a 1998 photo taken by me.
I carried a photocopy of this picture on my trek and tried to find the same place Smythe stood when he snapped the shutter.
