Nepal EBC Trip: Gokyo Lakes 3, 4800m

This is the top view of Gokyo-Ri and Gokyo Lakes 3.

The lake strangely reflects emerald color instead of blue against the sky.

Weather are very unpredictable. Clouds are moving in amazing speed.

As we climbed further up,  we saw the cloud rolling towards the village.

Noticed the gray area behind the village? It’s the wasteland we show you Yesterday

In a moment, the whole village and lake are covered with cloud. Thank God its only cloud.

    Wow that’s incredible how that lake is an emerald color. I wonder why it’s like that. That is a very beautiful spot but that cloud is really something.

    Hey guys, thanks for your encouragements and comments.

    – Ann: The emerald tone on the lake are causes by the combination of reflection from the sky and it’s depth.
    – Ruthi: Yes it worth every effort and challenge to be there. Simply awesome!
    – Rose, VS, Lin, Violet, Ingimg and June Zach: Indeed God’s creations are magnificent. As I’m climbing higher up to the peak of Gokyo-Ri, it takes just a moment for the clouds to engulf the entire surface beneath and soon it rushes to the Mountain top.
    – Michelle: Thanks. ;)
    – Winter_gurl: Thank God for the save journey that I’m now back to civilization. :)

    – Spice Up Your Life: It is the sun rays that landed on the mountains
