Gokyo, Nepal at Night

Jeff: “The night at Gokyo is the most relax moment during my Everest Base Camp journey. Here is the view just 2 minutes from the hotel. The winter Milky Way with bright Sirius, Orion and Aldebaran shine above the moonlight mountainscape of Phari Lapche. I also enjoy the calm view of Lake Dudh Pokhari with the reflections of the stars and snow peak.”

Gokyo Ri, aka Gokyo Peak (5,357 m, 17,575 ft above sea level), is a peak in the Khumbu region of the Nepal Himalayas. It is located on the west side of the Ngozumpa glacier, which is the largest glacier in Nepal and reputed to be the largest in the whole Himalayas. Gokyo (4,750 m, 15,583 ft above sea level), at the base of Gokyo Ri, is a small hamlet of a few stone houses and one of the highest settlements in the world. From Gokyo Ri it is possible to see four 8,000-meter peaks. (Source: Wikipedia)
