View of Gokyo Lakes from Gokyo Ri, Sagarmatha National Park, Nepal.

After leaving our teahouse at 3.00am this was the view we received when we reached the top of Gokyo Ri (5357m). It was a tough 3hr slog uphill but well worth it. Gokyo village is based at the lake and Cholatse (6501m) and Tawoche Peak (6542m) are the largest peaks in this image.

564 Views – June 2013.

Taken with Canon IXUS 80.
