Nepal - Sagamartha Trek - Ngozumba Gl from Gokyo Ri

The sweep of the Ngozumba glacier (Nepal's longest) and encircling mountains clad in new snow as seen from Gokyo Ri just after sunrise.

 

The sun rose just behind Everest (centre, left peak) and Nuptse/Lhotse (centre, right peaks). All the peaks are above 6000m.

 

Main peaks visible (L to R) include (I think) Chakung (7029); Chunbu (6859); Cholo (6059), the closest at left of centre; Lobuche West (6145) and East (6119), centre; Everest, Nuptse and Lhotse tallest behind and above; Arakam Tse (6423); Cholatse (6440); and Taboche (6501). (if I've got them wrong, let me know...)

 

You can see the 3rd Gokyo Lake at the bottom right
