Base camp is at about 5000 feet but I think that's the next one up; base doesn't seem to be near the ice fall.
If you look at the farthest-right of the tents, there's a group putting up the frame of a yurt; just to the right of this there looks like what
appears to be a meteor impact site, and another larger one to the right of that a ways. They're full of ice now and make a nice round hole in the
ground. I don't know what else could have made them, they're too regular.
Edited to add, if you scan all the way to the right (almost behind the place where the picture first loads to), THERE'S base camp. It's blue and has
real buildings, not just tents.
There's people about halfway up the mountain, and more at what is probably the last camp area before the place they summit from; you can see them in
the smooth snow part of the Everest climb, right below where the snow is melted and they're going up the sheer black diagonal rock face. There's a
lot of people there, surprising!
