not a photo but this video shows a lot of the landscape in passu, where a few of my colleagues are from and where i went to a music festival back in august. this band headlined the festival.

Just back from nearly three weeks trekking in the Himalays. Did a trek called the 'three passes' which takes you through the main Everest base camp trail valley (Everest superhighway full of people with lots of money being literally hand held to Basecamp which is actually very unintersting), and 3 valleys either side of that. Incredible trip, not sure if I should have made my first long distance trek this one as it'll be hard to beat. Pic shows Everest (black triangle to the left) and Lhotse to the right.

awesome man. yea you've been dropping some incredible photos lately.

Everest looks so "small" from this photo.. hah. I have no concept of mountains/climbing so, hard for me to conceptualize it. I would have never expected that you could see people climbing up it, but I guess you're pretty high already? lool. no idea. :D

Yeah so I was at around 5500m when I took this, so only 3000 to the top haha...I can't even imagine how ridiculous it would be to see Everest from sea level. The perspective is weird too, lhotse looks way bigger as it's nearer but is actually 400m shorter.

I didn't see anyone, but with a good pair of binoculars you would. Summit attempts are typically done through the night, so people going up to this viewpoint for sunrise could see headlights high on everest...kinda cool.

Altitude is so weird - there's just no air, even at 4-5000m, simple tasks have you breathless. I can't even imagine what it's like up above 8000m.

amazing photo, what a clear day! the air up that high is so intense, nothing in between you and the distance. i've never gone as high as 5500m, i think highest for me is 5200. super cool.

if you enjoyed, lmk if you want to climb a mountain in northern pakistan next year. trying to get a small group together to climb spantik, the "easiest" 7000m peak (i.e. very little to no technical climbing, it's basically a very, very high trek). yes srs.

sorry late reply - yeah it was an incredible experience and i definitely want to go higher. i've read of spantik....7k is VERY high though! i'd be very interested but unfortunately im just not going to have the funds/time to do something like this for a couple of years at least.

my plan is to get some techincal stuff done in the uk in winter and the alps and progress that way as its easy enough to just take a few days out to go in a little adventure. best of luck if you do get a team together to do that though, it would be an incredible experience.
