Gokyo lakes, finally we reached this famous site.

The path are rocky and dry. The fog moving constantly.

Here is the full view of the first lake. (Click to enlarge.)

Even though it looks like ordinary lake, no plant or animal living in that  lake due to its low temperature.

Macherna  at 4440m / 14,567ft. nothing much there but a place where we can stay a night before going Gokyo Lakes.
The weather looks fine when we arrived. Not many people living here.
We arrived just in time when we saw from distance, a thick cloud coming fast towards us.
Not an ordinary cloud…
It’s a snow storm. (Click to enlarge.)
