Glimpses of Gokyo: On the foothills of the world’s roof

For thousands of people in the world, the only thing they know about Nepal is that it is the home to Mount Everest, the highest mountain in the world. Hence, they fail to realise that Nepal boasts many other travel destinations which are as enticing as the Everest.

One is the Gokyo Lake, which lies just at the foothill of Everest, at an altitude of 5,360 metres. Pictures of the Lake and areas surrounding it were exhibited at the Nepal Tourism Board in Kathmandu from September 22 to 26.

Total 33 photographs captured by photographer Dawa Lama attracted hundreds of visitors at the latest edition of #PhotoNepal hosted by the NTB.

“You can enjoy the masmerising views of┬áSagarmatha, Makalu, Cho-Oyu, Lhotse and other mountains from the Gokyo Lake. Further, it is a part of trekking route in itself,” NTB Executive Chief Deepak Raj Joshi says, “Hence, we exhibited pictures from the site.”

Meanwhile, photographer Lama says suggests this season before the winter, and between greatest Nepali festivals of Dashain and Tihar, will be the best for any visitor wishing to visit Gokyo.

It takes three days to reach the lake from Namche Bazaar.
