[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Mount Everest or Sagarmatha(सगरमाथा) or Chomolungma is the highest mountain on Earth, as measured by the height of its summit above sea level (8848m - measurement of May 2005 is 8850m, depending ice and period). The mountain, which is part of the Himalaya range in High Asia, is located on the border between Nepal and Tibet

First Ascent of the most famous mountain on earth: May 29, 1953, by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay

While I stayed in Tibet, we didn`t see so many summits because of rainy season, but from the flight from Lhasa to Kathmandu we were lucky and I took this picture through a really scratched window. And it's scanned, too. Quality is not best - I used noise reduction.

Hope you like it

Very impressive photograph Georg... There really isn't anything to pick on given the circumstances. Well done.
