Scott Fischer memorial near Thokla Pass. Scott Fischer was one of the better known climbers who died during the 1996 Everest season. This was the worst season on record, with 15 people not returning, including 8 people who died on a single day.
This is the Tibetan side of Mount Everest where tents are pitched in deep snow. This is how they had their tents set up in the book, and this helps me visualize the setting and scene of the book better.
