K2 (also known as Chhogori/Qogir, Ketu/Kechu, and Mount Godwin-Austen) (Urdu:شاہ گوری) is the second-highest mountain on Earth, after Mount Everest. It is located on the border between Baltistan, in the Gilgit–Baltistan region of northern Pakistan, and the Taxkorgan Tajik Autonomous County of Xinjiang, China.
Everest. Buddhists believe a goddess lives in the mountain and she decides who summits, who doesn't, who makes it down safely, and who doesn't. She doesn't take kindly to big egos or those who try to "conquer" her. Humble respect always.
We biked from Lhasa Tibet to Kathmandu Nepal and along the way we stayed one night at the Rongbuk Monestary which is about 8km from the Tibetan side Everest base camp. Took this shot just as night was drawing near as the top of Everest was lit up by alpenglow.
