Everest - Buddhists believe a goddess lives in the mountain and she decides who summits, who doesn't, who makes it down safely, and who doesn't. She doesn't take kindly to big egos or those who try to "conquer" her. Humble respect always.
When I was a child in the you could have have taken a quiet walk on a dirt or path. Made it your special quiet place. What a pity that today it isn't safe for anyone much less a lone woman walking here.
