Mt. Thamserku as Seen from Khumjung Village

Mt. Thamserku a beautiful mountain in the Everest region of Nepal. I took this picture on 7th April 2005 during my trek to the Sherpas village of Khumjung. Khumjung is a typical Sherpa village situated at the altitude of 3,790m above the sea level. You can see a old monastery in Khumjung where you can find Yetis sculp. Also there is a highest places High school founded by Sir Edmund Hillary. The Khumjung High School was established in 1960 after Tenjing Norgey Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hillary successfully climbed Mt.
