An Everest Journey

Dawa fills the teacups of the praying Sherpa as they are performing the Puja, a ceremony to bless the climbers, both Sherpa and non-Shepra, and their equipment April 15, 2013. The Sherpa are lined up and chant a soothing, soulful string of prayers to ask for blessing of the climb. Behind Dawa is Everest; the peak to the right is Nuptse. (photo by Nick Gibson)
