    Default There goes Mt Everest.

    This will confirm the loss of another scenic sight.

    The EBC is travelled up from the campsites via horse carts currently, only authorised vehicles are allowed to drive up to the EBC.

    Don't think they will build the highway all the way up to the EBC. Probably till the place where the horse carts start the ride for tourist. Would hate to see it urbanised tho'

    The whole of Lhasa has been urbanized, what other place in China do you think they will not touch?

    That I won't know, but that's the progression in life and technology I guess...it would be awkward to see MRT arriving at EBC...

    I encountered bad weather on my way down from EBC, it was going to snow, wind wasn't that strong, but that's already at 5000+m altitude.

    Who knows?

    I think it was Joe Jackson that included the words, "call a place Paradise and kiss it goodbye" in one of his songs.
    Time, is an effortless construction :)

    Reminds me of a lyric from another song, can't remember its title though. "They paved Paradise, and put up a parking lot."
