Location: Hotel Everest View (3870 m)      by: Pedrotti Alberto
Area: Nepal      Date: 30-04-2019
The Everest View Hotel was built by the Japanese on the top of the 4000-m "hill" hosting Namche Bazar on its southern flanks. Just follow with your mind the path visible in the right portion of the pano, arrive at the ridge bordering with the clouds and... from there - looking deeply down - you will see Namche.
This was the interesting point for me, while I was expecting to see Namche for the first time. But the aim of the hotel, as the name reveals, is have a sight on Mount Everest, which here is perfectly pointed by the wind flag on the pole. Incidentally: after leveling the mountains with Udeuschle, that pole does not come out that upright; I will check, but that kind of perfection is not the rule here.
To be honest, Everest is one of the less apparent features of this view: just look how more prominent and majestic are Thamserku and Ama Dablam, just to name two. But the hill is considered to be the most accessible viewpoint on the highest one. Even more accessible if you are a tourist coming by helicopter, and walking just a few metres to the hotel, which you guess hidden behind the trees.
The present panorama was shot during an early morning walk on the hill. Later, when we passed "officially" with our sherpa on the way from Khumjung to Namche, it would have been impossible to shoot a 360° without helicopters landing and/or taking off.
On the terrace of the hotel there is also a remarkable marble plate reading "In memory of Keizo Miura - pioneer of Japanese mountaineering ski and photography devoted his life to mountains until age 101 (1904-2006)."
If you are interested not only in marble plates, but also in loads of yak dung, just re-read the test to N.25673.

Viel spektakulärer als der Mount Everest zeigt sich von dort der steil aufragende Ama Dablam, dessen Gipfel von einer Bannerwolke gekrönt ist.

Im rechten Bildteil zeigt der Himmel dunkle Streifen, möglicherweise durch Vignettierung verursacht.
