Nepal - Sagamartha Trek - 096 - Gokyo and Ngozumpa Gl in sunrise

    Newer Older

    The dramatic landscape of the Gokyo region from the top of Gokyo Ri. We had hiked up in the early morning and I just caught the first rays of the sun as I reached the summit.

    Visible are the Ngozumpa Glacier (the longest in Nepal), the mountains Arakam Tse and Cholatse and the village of Gokyo on the 3rd Gokyo Lake.

    We got snow the day before, so everything was a lovely fresh white. By late morning, much of the light ground cover was gone again (and then it snowed again).

    It was a brilliant morning and we could have stayed on the summit all day looking at the 360 degree panorama.
