Our virtual tour of Tibet continues this week with a new episode of The Rest of Everest, which opens this week with some images of Everest and Kathmandu sent in my a avid fan of the show who was in Nepal recently, sporting a Rest of Everest T-Shirt.
This is Episode 83 and is entitled “In The Company of Giants”. We’re not 12 days into Jon and Scott’s Himalayan Adventure, and at long last we lay our eyes on Everest, and what a sight it is to behold. The shots, even from a distance, are amazing.
Some of the other highlights this week are seeing the entrance to pass that leads to Everest where guards check passports before allowing anyone forward and a series of long and winding switchbacks that lead up to the higher mountain regions from the Tibetan Plateau.
But really it’s Everest that is the star of the show, after all it’s name is right there in the title of the show. And you can tell that Jon and Scott are happy to see the mountain at long last. The panning shots of Everest and the other Himalayan peaks, including Cho Oyu, are a feast for the eyes.
With Everest now in sight, you know that the episodes over the next few weeks will really pay off. Base Camp is not so far away now, and we should get some more great shots of the mountain and BC itself.
