Photo of the Day – Mong in the Morning

Mong in the Morning

Title: Mong in the Morning

Location: Mog La, Khumbu Region, Nepal (MAP)

Description: Situated on a pass, or La in Nepali, the village of Mong commands a sweeping view East and South to neighboring peaks, such as Ama Dablam (5,563m/18,251′) on the left and Kantega (6779m/22,240′) on the right.  The prayer flags draped off the central stupa catch the ever present wind on this pass and carry the prayers all over the world.
