Tibet, Everest And Rongbuk Wide View, 1998 - In the foreground of this photograph is Rongbuk Monastery. In the background is Mount Everest, the world's tallest mountain. I first arrived here in 1995 when I climbed Mount Everest. But I returned in 1998 with my Russian friends, including George Kotov, Sasha and Alexey, having driving 10,000 km from St. Petersburg. The following year George led me and others to drive to the highest point ever driven. We reached a point of (5726 meters, or 18787 feet) in Tibet. George drove the final hill.
