Everest from Rongbuk after snow

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. (copyrighted) As previously posted on ExposedPlanet

Don't know...

...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!
