Gokyo Ri or Gokyo Peak 5,357 m
situated on the west side of Ngozumpa glacier is the largest glacier in Nepal and
It has the reputation of being the largest in the entire Himalayas.

After a small
rest and of course his subsequent lunch, we undertake the ascent to the
top. Here we are mentalizing for what is coming.

The ascent is very evident, just after crossing a small stream, we find the
strong rise that ascends to the top.

The main quality of
this mountain is the impressive balcony to the Ngozumba glacier and of course
the impressive mountains that appear before us: mid-slope
Everest is already seen. The paronámica that
It unfolds in 360º is incredible, you can see the Cho Oyu, the Chumbu, the Pumori, the
Everest, the Nuptse, the Lhotse and a lot of minor peaks.

The climb is perfect
marked and has only one rise steadily for one hour fifty. A
long of the rise we can see a lot of landmarks that indicate
perfectly the way.

Several piles of
stones with prayer flags mark the top. And now it's time to
the pictures.

This summit serves as a way
ideal acclimatization and of course a set-up to catch shape

The time invested in the
Downhill round the scarce hour. Although it can be downloaded very quickly it is interesting
do it very slowly so that the body gets used to the height and not have
sudden changes in pressure. Therefore it is highly recommended to stop to enjoy
of the views.

As an anecdote
comment that this has been the day that I had the most headaches, was the
first day that passed five thousand meters and the body notices it. In the group this
day was also hard for some members since the symptoms of the
height were considerably accentuated.

    Pujada molt dura per la altitud, però les vistes des de el cim ens deixa bocabadats. En la baixada els problemes d'altura tornen a aparèixer.
