It is international mountain day today. A good reason to dig deep in my picture archive and post a photo of Mt Everest and Ama Dablam with the gate of the famous monastery of Tengboche in the foreground.(2004)
Ama Dablam, Nepal - Literal meaning of Ama Dablam is Mother's Necklace, as viewed from Tengboche. The main peak is 6,812 metres (22,349 ft), the lower western peak is 6,170 metres (20,243 ft). Ama Dablam is the third most popular Himalayan peak for permitted expeditions.
