“Acclimatizing hike to about 5800 meters. The view – #Everest (8848m), #Lhotse (8516m), and #Nuptse (7855m). The #Khumbu ice fall is between the western shoulder of Everest and Nuptse. It is continuously moving downward and turns left to become the Khumbu glacier. #OnEverest @natgeo @thenorthface” – Sam Elias on Instagram (@bookofsamuel)
