Re: That one is Lhotse?

If so, why didn't you post this photo in the Lhotse page?

Thanks again

Re: That one is Lhotse?

I think the picture is well placed here because you can see important parts on Everest normal South Col route.

Re: That one is Lhotse?

Sure Mathias, but the mountain is Lhotse. Isn't it?

Re: That one is Lhotse?

A lot of thanks for Diego's asking and for Mathias's comment.

I am so sorry for that the reply was delayed, because I was taking a photograph in mountains.

At this photo, I aimed at the glacial source which is an Everest bottom.

I didn't aim at Lhotse which can be seen small.

It is because that Lhotse at this photo can be seen like one of the peaks on the ridge of Everest.

This resembles Mathias's point of view.

By Diego's asking, I was worried. As a result, I added the explanation to the caption of Lhotse.

Where did you take it from?

Maybe from the summit of Pumori? Or somewhere near it?

Re: Where did you take it from?

Hello Eza

A lot of thanks of your comment. Sorry, it is not from the summit of Pumori. It is from a airplane.

Intersesting Angle!

I've never seen a photo from this angle. Definitely good on the Everest page since it shows so clearly the normal Nepali route up...
