G'day VF,

Pic 5359...ok, I will guess...

Looks like a pic from another country, near where you are, but with active Royalty.

Correct ?

Sagarmatha... even in the best sunshiney weather, the peak is always windswept and obscured. Not a place for the timid. Or the sensible.

Re 5361 and similar. Ever seen (or started) an avalanche. Would be spectacular and very scary to watch I reckon.

I think that covers it very nicely, VF. This is not a good place for student pilots to build hours.

What always strikes me is the way the peak of Everest can be CAVU within 500 meters, but near the rock you are in whiteout conditions. A challenging place to fly. Requires high performance machinery operating at red-line. Better you than me, matey.
