A general view from Everest Base Camp in

A general view from Everest Base Camp in Nepal on May 17, 2009. Bad weather conditions forced three Nepalese Sherpa brothers to give up their plans to set a new world record by spending 24 hours in the “death zone” on top of Mount Everest. Pemba Dorje Sherpa, 30, and his two younger brothers reached the summit on May 19, but were forced down after only two hours, Pemba told AFP after returning to Kathmandu.
