In 2016, I attempted to climb Mt. Everest for the 3rd time. Here’s the vlog I filmed throughout the 2-month expedition.
Before climbing up the mountain, it is common practice by expedition teams (and mandatory for Sherpas) to have a Puja ceremony. It is a prayer service to grant us safe passage by the mountain gods. It is a beautiful thing to observe, with the juniper burning, Tibetan prayers chanting, prayer flags flying, and the local alcohol drinking. Always a memorable experience!
