Prayer Flags Strung Over Everest Glacial River

Category: Outdoor Scenes

Last year we made the pilgrimage to Nepal to complete the trek to Mount Everest Base Camp. Each step you take on the trek you see the most stunning scenery in the Khumbu region and while standing on a small bridge on the trail this was a special moment to capture. Prayer flags fluttered in the wind and released their mantras.

Location: Benkar, Sagarmatha National Park, Nepal
