Gokyo Lake - (5340m) - Dragnag (4700m), 3 / 4h walk and Night in a lodge
We make the return trip in the morning. The very easy climb to Gokyo Peak (5,280 m) is worth it, as it offers a superb view of the magnificent peaks of Khumbu that surround us. The south face of Cho Oyu (8,153 m) stands out, as well as Ngozumba and Gyachung Kang (7,922 m), but we also see Changtse (7,553 m), Everest, Lhotse (8,501 m), the Pumori (7,145 m) and even the Makalu (8,463 m). We overlook the Ngozumba glacier, behind which our view is on Ama Dablam (6,812 m), Kantenga (6,799 m) and Thamserku. Then, we descend the valley to Dragnag, on the left bank of the Dudh Kosi, opposite the frontal moraine of the Ngozumba glacier.
