The first shot from yesterdays hike at Sognsvann. I had the feeling that the quickly changing weather and strong contrast of clouds create a nice view of the lake, as well as the reflection. I suppose more or less that resulted as I expected.

Also for the curious ones, there is no post processing, Photoshop or edits here, except some crops and RAW settings.

Press ‘M’ for best view!

Gokyo Lakes are oligotrophic lakes in Nepal’s Sagarmatha National Park, located at an altitude of 4,700–5,000 m (15,400–16,400 ft) above sea level. These lakes are the world’s highest freshwater lake system comprising six main lakes, of which Thonak Lake is the largest. In September 2007, Gokyo and associated wetlands of 7,770 ha (30.0 sq mi) have been designated a Ramsar site.

Gokyo lakes are located in Khumjung Village Development Committee of Solukhumbu District in Sagarmatha Zone in north-eastern Nepal. Gokyo Cho, also called Dudh Pokhari, is the main lake and the village of Gokyo lies on its eastern shore. Gokyo is among the most popular tourist destinations leading towards the Sagarmatha base camp and other areas. Gokyo village at 4,790 metres (15,720 ft) elevation is a major centre in the area. The site is two days walk uphill from Namche Bazaar.

The Gokyo Lakes are considered sacred by both Hindus and Buddhists.

The Ngozumpa glacier can be seen at the left. The Ngozumpa glacier, below the sixth highest mountain in the world Cho Oyu in Nepal, at 36 kilometres (22 mi), is the longest glacier in the Himalayas.
