Photo Of The Day – Sunrise From 16,500′

Description: We sat at 16,500′ in Nepal’s Himalayas to catch our breath, only to have it taken away by an incredible sunrise and views of Mt. Everest (high peak behind the black one on left). This is why I title my photo trek in the Nepal: Unforgettable Himalayas.

On this day the fog had rolled in over the Ngozumpa Glacier, the longest in all of Nepal, creating a world where saw no other signs of civilization. Peaceful, serene, calming…the synonyms go on and on.

This photo was taken on my last five person photo trek in Nepal in October of 2019.
