A few days away still, but you can see Island Peak down the valley. That's Dingboche below. From Wikipedia: Imja Tse, better known as Island Peak, is a mountain in the Himalayas of eastern Nepal. The peak was named Island Peak in 1951 by Eric Shipton's party since it appears as an island in a sea of ice when viewed from Dingboche. The peak was later renamed in 1983 to Imja Tse but Island Peak remains the popular choice. 6,189m / 20,305 ft.
