Golden Dusk, Gokyo Valley - Nepal

Cholatse, and its neighboring alpine peaks, light up with the golden tones of a spectacular sunset, from Gokyo Ri. Far below, at the village of Gokyo, the oppressive clouds and darkness almost kept us from hiking up to the top of the hill. But, just a few hundred meters from the summit, we broke out of the valley cloud and were rewarded with this scene.
