I had no idea the landscape there was so totally dead. Anyone know what those blue and orange things on the ground are?...If you look near the bottom along the "path" you will see it.

Just wow!  :o

@ Badger, you can maybe not scroll into the picture?
That are the tents of the tourists and groups which have to start from these special "base" camps. This seems to be one of those acclimatization zones, where all have to rest because of the more and more thinner air, before they start to climb next height.
