Gorak Shep



"This recording was made at 3am, April 5, 2011, at Gorak Shep, Nepal, which, at an altitude of 16,500 feet (around 5,200 meters), is the last village before Everest Base Camp. My tent was in the middle of hundreds of yaks that were parked there in the evening and awakened to carry equipment to the Base Camp just as I started recording. I stopped the recorder when my hand was about to freeze. The temperature was about -15 degrees centigrade (5 degrees fahrenheit)."
