The next day was another relaxing one, and I just walked to the other side of the third lake, where there is a kind of beach. The first photo is looking back at the Gokyo lodges across the lake.
Gokyo to Pangboche
The next day I started the return journey; returning on the route of the outward trek until Phortse Tanga. Then it was a left turn to Pangboche, where I overnighted at a lodge run by a Sherpa who had climbed Everest several times. There were photos of him on the peak in the dining room.
The first photo below is of sunrise on the mountains in the morning. Looking up what mountain it is I today, nearly five years later, realised it’s the Everest range from the other side to Gokyo.
Can you spot the horse in the second photo?
The third photo is looking back at Pangboche, with Ama Dablam to its side, and the Everest range behind it.
Tengboche to Lukla
The first photo below also looks back at Ama Dablam and the Everest range, but from Tengboche, where I overnighted.
The final photo is from Lukla, which is either the trek beginning or end, or both, if you fly Lukla-Kathmandu-Lukla.
