Mantra - "Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean " John Muir

The Everest Basecamp trek will take you thru many small and big monasteries. The prayer wheel is a common sight. 'A prayer wheel is a cylindrical wheel on a spindle made from metal, wood, stone, leather or coarse cotton. Traditionally, the mantra Om Mani Padme Hum is written in Sanskrit on the outside of the wheel.
According to the Tibetan Buddhist tradition based on the lineage texts regarding prayer wheels, spinning such a wheel will have much the same meritorious effect as orally reciting the prayers' @wikipedia

"You have to get lost before you can be found" said Jeff Rasley. Trekking in Himalayas is a life changing experience. The mountains teaches you things that is not taught anywhere.. Life is short, take a time off to go on a's worth it!

Donation at high places !! Pasang Lama Sherpa has been repairing the trail in this Khumbu region since 1984. Pictured here is sherpa's wife collecting donations from trekkers to support the efforts to maintain and repairs of the trail.

Porters of Everest - Porters enjoying a serious game of volley ball game at 5300 mtrs ( 17,388 feet) after a full day haul of back breaking load. This is the highest volley ball ground on the planet. These porters carry 100 pound to 200 pounds of loads mile after arduous mile over these vertical Himalayan terrain. These are the unsung heroes of Everest. More pictures and stories coming soon!

Children of Everest - These Children don't have a normal childhood. They will end up doing a porter / daily wager or you can see these child workers on Kathmandu's streets, whether cleaning dishes in local restaurants or as domestic servants. Many are employed in the carpet, brick and garment industries and many of them are trafficked to India.

We stopped at Shomare ( 4040 mtrs), a small village on the way to the Everest Basecamp, to have our vegetable noodle soup..and warm drinking water for our trek. This villager was spreading the quilt in the sun as we ate our noodle soup 🍜!!
