Nepal - Sagamartha Trek - 057 - chorten silhouetted by Lhotse & Everest

One of the views you are there for.

 

This is our first view of Lhotse (right and ridge) and Mt. Everest (left, peaking out behind). I wasn't there to see Everest specifically, but beholding with your eyes the place that is the highest on the planet is very, very cool nonetheless.

 

Everest: 8,848 metres (29,028 feet), tallest in the world

Lhotse: 8,516 metres (27,939 feet), 4th tallest in the world

 

After a day of haze and clouds swirling around them, we got a day of brilliant, clear skies for this view as we left Namche for Dole.
