River in the Sky, Gokyo Valley - Nepal

Hiking down the Gokyo valley somewhere near the tiny village of Luza, the raging torrent of the Dudh Kosi river seems suspended in the sky. The trail from Gokyo down to Namche is a thigh straining 4,000 feet of vertical loss, which gives the trekker a totally different appreciation of the arduous uphill sections.
