One of the last stops on the way to Mt Everest is this small town called Lobuche. You stay there the night before making the pass to Gorak Shep, then onto Mount Everest. Hidden up high behind the houses you can see evidence of some of the wreckages from helicopters and airplanes that never made it to their destination. Having previously just passed another helicopter wreckage just a few weeks old. Being so close to the elements here is a constant reminder not to take anything for granted.

Location: Lobuche, Nepal
