Mt. Everest Base Camp

During our road trip through Tibet, we stopped at Mt. Everest Base Camp. 

The drive leading to Mt. Everest
We passed a few small villages 

The weather completely changed when we reached the camp

This building is what is considered the base camp.

Buddha's cave home at Mt. Everest Base Camp. My husband always manages to stand out :)

It is considered the highest temple on Earth

The outside. One direction was clear and sunny.

The other was cloudy and gray.

Leaving the temple. Can you see the little deer in this photo ^ Masters of disguise!

  1. Hi Carolyn!

    Picked it from your post on Virtual Tourist. Your blog is beautiful and you are lucky to make it to EBC. We planned that too but still to be materialized due to weird visa and permit issues :(

    Now a days, I am writing a detailed travelogue on my blog about our travels to (part) South East Asia. You are invited to visit that (

    And I feel sorry about your mother. My cousin used to work in WTC and was in the building when that happened. Fortunately, he is alive to tell us the horrible thing.

    Happy Travels :)
