Picture Book: Everest, 8848 m, and Lotze, 8500 m, Nepal.

Everest (8848 m), pyramid with clouds skirting the top, left, Nuptze (7800 m), left, below Everest, and Lotze (8500 m), right. Photo taken between Tengboche and Dingboche. For location, see Google Panoramio.

The little mountain right bottom of the picture is only 5800 m high. I stood on of it in November 1997, a 8 hour day trip from Dingboche. It is dwarfed by the 3 km high Lotze and Nuptze face, from 5000 m to around 8000 meters
