Mt. Everest from Pumori Camp 1
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
Pumori Camp 1 offers a better view of Everest and its surroundings than Kala Patthar does. I hiked up there one afternoon and got this shot of Everest with the evening alpenglow illuminating its upper flanks. From this vantage point you can see the Northeast Ridge route on the left from just below the Second Step to the summit. On the right you can see the South Col route from the Balcony to the summit. The obvious yellow band of shale begins at over 27,000 feet on this part of Everest.
