Lakes of Nepal - Thomas L. Kelly

Gokyo Lake, Solukhumbu, Nepal.

Gokyo Lakes are oligotrophic lakes in Nepal's Sagarmatha National Park, located at an altitude of 4,700–5,000 m (15,400–16,000 ft) above sea level. These lakes are the world’s highest freshwater lake system. It is one of the most popular tourist destinations leading towards the Sagarmatha base camp. The Gokyo Lakes are considered sacred by both Hindus and Buddhists. Hindus take a holy bath in the lakes during the Janai Purnima festival, which usually occurs in the month of August.
