Nepal in the 1950s
5 days to Kathmandu
On the journey to Everest, the day would begin with a hurried cup of tea at 6 a.m. followed by a march of some 2 to 3 hours, a stop for breakfast and then several more hours walking until early evening when camp would be pitched for the night. In this image, members walk along a stone path about 5 to 6 days in from Kathmandu.
