We set out in the dark to make way for the top of Gokyo Ri. By the time we had reached the summit the sun was high in the sky already, but it was mostly clear and that's what mattered. The 360 degree views from this location are phenomenal: Cho Oyu and the Tibetan Border to the North, Everest and Lhotse to the East, Thamserku & Kangtega to the South at the end of the Valley. Glaciers, Lakes, brooding fog, it really is a sight that will never be forgotten. Probably the best birthday I could ask for!!
