Memorial Chortens, Khumbu Valley - Nepal

At the terminal edge of the Khumbu Glacier, on the rocky spine of the lateral moraine, stands this series of memorial chortens. Offerings are fixed inside, and include mantras written on paper, jewellery, and other precious objects that may have some tie with the person that the chorten was built for. To be completely effective, a chorten should have an unimpaired view of flowing water.
