Mountain spirit?! Relax… He is only our Sherpa. His name is Dil.

We used him for the second time on our trekking expedition because he is very knowledgeable, skillful and most importantly honest.

Sherpa is used to refer as guides for mountaineering expeditions in the Himalayas, particularly Mt. Everest.
They are highly regarded as elite mountaineers and experts in their local terrain.
Sherpa were of immeasurable value to any explorers of the Himalayan region, serving as guides and porters at the extreme altitudes of the peaks and passes in the region. Their lungs can absorbs oxygen better than normal human. That’s why they are excellent in what they do.
They are renowned in the international climbing and mountaineering community for their hardiness, expertise, and experience at high altitudes.
Another thing about this funny guy. He likes to pose in front of camera! Always in style.
If you guys planning to go to Himalayan mountains, I really recommend this guy.

Prayer flags are common sight all over Nepal. Their purpose is to chant prayers to their God.

Each flick of these colorful flags by the wind counted as one chanting prayer.

If you seen small shrine like this all over Nepalese mountains, it means someone has died around there and the shrine acted as a memorial for those who are deceased or lost.

Definitely not a good place for picnic.

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.
