This handout picture released by DJ Paul Oakenfold's SoundTrek on April 10, 2017 and taken on April 8 shows the British artist in Khumjung as he hikes to Mount Everest's base camp ahead of a concert billed as the "highest party on earth".

What you need to know:

  • Broad Peak is one of the so-called "8,000s", the 14 mountains higher than 8,000 metres.
  • It was first climbed in the summer of 1957 by an Austrian team, while a Polish quartet summitted in winter in 2013 but two went missing on the descent and were declared dead days later.
