World's highest bakery
But this story of a bakery at Mt. Everest surely breaks all records.
At the heart of Everest base camp, in one of the hundreds of tents that make up this seasonal settlement, is a bakery.
It may be one of the world's highest. The man who had the idea for it, Dawa Steven Sherpa, isn't sure. But it does attract customers.
Entering the tent, the weary trekker is wrapped in a welcome cloak of warmth and of mouth-watering bakery smells.
The various goodies are stacked in plastic trays - chocolate cake, apple pie, croissants, cinnamon rolls, banana bread and doughnuts.
Chocolate chip cookies are piled in plastic jars.
Following their noses, hikers troop in. Some appear disconcerted by the prices, which are steep compared with those lower down the mountain. But then, this is 5,350 metres high. The visitors buy, and eat.
Dawa is on his second expedition up Everest and had the idea for the bakery on his previous trip.
