A while ago I presented you with the view of the first Gokyo lake in the Gokyo valley.
On the trail from Machhermo to Gokyo we passed the first three lakes of the Gokyo valley. This one, the third, is very quite large. It lies in the altitude 4800 metres above sea level and is called Dudh Pokhari. The Gokyo village actually lies on the shore of this lake.
All the lakes have amazing turquoise colour. These lakes are the world’s highest freshwater lake system comprising six main lakes, but there are more of them in total. The Gokyo lake system is spread over an area of 196.2 ha lying between 4,600 and 5,100 m. The wetland lies on the head of the Dudh Kosi river, which descends from Cho Oyu.
The Gokyo Lakes are considered sacred by both Hindus and Buddhists.

breath-taking view, I like very much the layered composition and amazing colors, especially the green lake as opposed to dark blue sky.
Real masterpiece, TFS

belle ambiance montagneuse contrastée à souhait.
l'opposition vert/bleu renforce l'ensemble.

Very well composed landscape, with a curvy shore that introduces us into your image and bring dynamism to the scene. Good use of this foreground patch to provide depth.
Overall, nice light, natural attractive colours and good proportion of sky vs land.

To me this is very special picture, a rare opportunity to witness such beauty of nature at this height. The view over the turquoise lake, mountain and the sky is stunning and very well enhanced by the textured foreground. A magnificent capture and thanks to your great effort.
