Alpine snowdrops lit up the ground, mirroring the sunny clear sky. Then, ten days into a Jiri-Gokyo trek, the first Gokyo lake came into view.
Gokyo Lakes Nepal Photos
It was great to reach the first Gokyo lake, and I built a cairn amongst many.
The fourth photo is of Cholatse, with its distinctive steep northern face.
I climbed over a couple of rocks to get the fifth photo of Gokyo’s second lake from its southern end. On its northern edge are the orange tents of a climbing group. Cho-Oyu is in the distance, as it is in the second photo.
