Harika bir fotoğraf! Greetings from Turkey...

Interesting photo; it is much less "romantic" than others I have seen. I wonder if that is because it means something very different to you, naturally, from what it means to the foreign climbers who come mainly to reach the summit.

Absolutely passionate photography,Sherpa. new year greetings from Mumbai. I visited EBC long back in 1988 & have shared few photos in GE. The golden view of Everest was not in our fotune that time neither I could go to Kala Pattar because of AMC But your photos have brought everything alive . I feel like visiting again. Thanks!!!

Thank you all, for the kind comments. I actually prefer some of the more colorful shots from my second trip to EBC in 2009:

I think you should visit again, Aditya. Things have changed very much since 1988. Allow plenty of time (3 weeks is essential to see EBC, Kala Pattar and Gokyo) so you can acclimatize properly. And choose a trekking company that doesn't go too fast. I love Project Himalaya and highly recommend them.

Thanks for reply. I am 50 & it looks an impossible proposal. Even 1988 is like a forever dream that ever happened to me. However if at all I will get chance I'll go with couple of friends. It will be another dream to be having 3 weeks at Gorakshep, Kalapattar, & Gokyo. I wish you all the best for all your future Himalayan coverages

Aditya, I was 55 when I did it in 2006 and 58 when I went last March. I will turn 60 in August and plan to return to Nepal next year, so don't let age stop you. Try to be in good physical condition, though.
