A porter carries crates containing oxygen tanks, with Mt Lingtren seen behind left, and Mt. Khumbutse, right, on his way towards Everest Base Camp, at Lobuche, Nepal. According to reports in the state run China Daily, a proposed plan for a rail link from China to Nepal could involve boring a tunnel under the 8,850-meter (29,035-foot) Mount Everest. The building of a rail link from Chinese-controlled Tibet to Nepal would need to pass beneath the Himalayan mountain range, according to reports.
