The Pic of the Week is drawn from photos submitted to the Solo Travel Society Facebook Group, providing an opportunity for solo travelers to share with us a favorite photo from their travels.
This week’s photo was shared with us by STS member Fabrizzio, who was solo trekking to Everest Base Camp. He said, “I wanted to avoid the crowds in the morning and climb Kala Patthar (the mountain where you take the best pictures of Everest) in the afternoon. All the trekkers with guides, groups, and sherpas go early in the morning and take pictures of the sunrise. Sunset pictures are hard to take since weather around the Khumbu region is so unpredictable. That afternoon I got lucky, it was windy and cold (-25 C) but all clear skies. I had the mountain all to myself.”
