I imagine you've met a lot of interesting people during you treks up the mountains. Was there a common theme among the people you met? What is the most common thing that drives people to climb Mt. Everest? Or was it different for everyone?
Thanks for the questions. My expereince on Everest has proven that there a as many reasons to climb Everest as there are poeple climbing it. But the one common denominator for almost all climbers is a person goal to push one's physical and mental self futher than ever before. There is always a certain sort of selfishness that goes with climbing an 8,000 meter peak.
