13th April , 2012 - Base Camp Pooja

Before starting Everest expedition Sherpas perform pooja at basecamp. For sherpas Everest means chomolugma, mother goddess. They pray for the safety of climbers and sherpas and for the success of the expedition. The entire route to the summit is very hazardous and sherpas believe the mother goddess protect them during the entire journey. After this pooja we will start movement on the mountain.

Buddhist Lama performed the pooja of all the equipments and idol of Gautam Buddha.

Afterwards we erected pole to which Indian triacolor was attached alongwith prayer flags. The sherpas believe with wind the prayer flags waves and prayers reach to the God.
