On the trek to Mount Everest Base Camp, you come to a part where there are numerous memorials made for those who have lost their lives attempting to summit the great beast. Prayer flags are a plenty wrapping warm the monuments of each lost travellers story. Many will forever stay sleeping under the watchful eye of the Himalayas.

Location: Mt Everest, Nepal
