Preparing Climbing at the Base Camp

Arriving at the Everest base camp area, the elevation of which is 5350 meters above sea level, all the people firstly set up the camps.

Arranging the Dining tent.  Sedentary style is, as far as I know, only applied by Koreans as for the dining tent in mountaineering expeditions.

Early September, snowing at the base camp.

Having dinner with head-light, for the electricity has not yet been settled

Evening the camp ground

Make a table of sedentary style with plastic boxes

The first three days they organized the huge amount of luggage

A SPCC (Sagarmatha Pollution Control Committee) person.  Composed of several local Sherpas, they set up the route from the Khumbu glacier to the Camp 2 (6500 meters), with, of course, payed.  This person came up to us to borrow the "Korean rope" to fix the route.

Lingtren shines behind the base tents.
