Photographer's Note

This place is the Everest Memorial, at the height of 4808, high as Mont Blanc on the Alps on the Moraine of the Khumbu Glacier.
It is on the way to Everest, between Duglha 4595 m. and Lobuche 4928 m.
A place of Cairns or little Chortens (small stone monuments) that have been erected as a memorial for Sherpas and Alpinists who have been lost on Everest.
It is a solemn place.

The highest mountains in the background are (from left): Ama Dablam, Thamserku and Kangtega

This place worth a "Theme".
