Gokyo Ri 1995

In October 1995 Ray and Jeanne flew from Kathmandu to Lukla to trek in the Everest area. The route followed the Dudh Kosi river and up to Namche Bazaar, then proceeded to Gokyo Lake where we climbed Gokyo Ri (18,000 ft, 5486 m) to view a stunning panorama that included 4 of the top 10 peaks in Nepal, including Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyo and Makalu. The trek included visits to Tengboche Monastery and Phakding Gompa.
