Boah! Superb shot, Juha, it´s great that the clouds hide the summit so you only can imagine how high it really is. And the tiny man shows in comparison all the majesty of the mountains... For me one of the best mountain shot in whole panoramio. (Yellow star of course). Greetings, Peter

Vielen Dank Peter für das Kompliment! (I'll switch to English, my German is a bit rusty...). It was an once in a lifetime opportunity for this picture. The mountain behind the trekker is Nuptse, a 7900+ meters high mountain in the Nuptse-Lhotse-Everest horseshoe. In the picture you can see part of the south wall of Nuptse facing the Chukung valley.
