Photographer's Note

Pumori is another massive Himalayan mountain topping out at 7,161 m (23,494 ft), and is known by the local Nepalese mountain people as 'the daughter of Everest', perhaps because of its close proximity to the highest mountain a few kilometres away. This shot takes in the very top of the high point of my trek; the prayer flags mark the summit of Kala Patthar, 5550m. I spent about 30 minutes on the top of this peak looking at the surrounding giants. My previous post today of dawn over Everest and Nuptse was taken perhaps 20 minutes later. It was a very surreal, dreamlike place to visit and the weather we had was incredibly good. From this vantage we could peer into the mysterious land of Tibet and look back down the valleys of Nepal with mountains in all directions. From here we could see four of the highest mountains on Earth, being Everest (1st), Lhotse (4th), Makalu (5th) and Cho Oyu (6th). Incredible.
