Mt Everest Base Camp at the heart of Himalayas. On top of the small hill decorated with prayer flags and rock piles you will share the place only with Her – the Mother of All Mountains....
North Base Camp - cont...
From the camp you can walk or take the shuttle to the Mt. Everest “observation area” – a place at the mouth of the valley marked by the small hill richly decorated with Buddhist Prayers Flags and Rock Piles.
From there (if you are lucky) the unspoiled view on the Quomolangma enfolds in front of your eyes.
So here it is:
Far enough from the tent-city, jeeps, souvenir stands and other “stuff”, grasping the oxygen from the thin air - you can spend time with Mother Nature humbling yourself in front of such stunning raw beauty and incredible power.
Unfortunately the best visibility of the Mt Everest usually comes during the winter time, but I do not suggest such experience unless you are one of those well seasoned, ready for everything, “hard-to-die”, stubborn adventurers.

So if you are a typical “summer time” visitor, the best you can do is to hope for the generosity of the Mother Nature.
For those less fortunate, this website provides a memory of what you have may missed – the free Mt Everest and North Base Camp pictures. Please take the tour to see unseen and/or revive the emotions from your visit to Himalayas.
Chomolongma in partial clouds looks as beautiful as ever... but I guess we all agree that in this case clouds are of secondary interest....

Rock piles bring the touch of human hands this seemingly lifeless landscape.
At about 5500 meters above the sea level (more than 18000 ft) there is no much life to be seen around. Rocks of different sizes and shapes are spread around in a random pattern guided by the forces of nature.
However once they are piled in the forms of pyramids, the same, otherwise lifeless rocks seem to get some meaning. They are not anymore a “bunch of stones” …
Obviously, when carefully arranged by the human hands they are carrying some message - may be spirit or prayers, may be emotions of their builders…
The fact is – they dramatically change the landscape adding to it the human footprints or as someone may say - a human soul. But fortunately in this case these human traces are harmoniously melting down with the surrounding wilderness...
