TitleStreambed, Khumbu Valley, Nepal
DescriptionThe Khumbu River in Nepal has headwaters near Mt. Everest. It is quite small, really a high-energy stream. The streambed is full of large (up to 1 m across) well rounded boulders, some of which have been transported significant distances. All fine material has been washed away by the high velocity water.
