East of Lukla
Evening clouds part for a brief moment, revealing unknown peaks east of Lukla.
The Zatra La, the 15,000' pass leading into the Hinku Valley is to the right, in the cloud.
There is a wealth of exploratory climbing here, just a few hours walk from Lukla.

dramatic sunlit peaks peeping out from the clouds and the contrast with the trees in the foreground.

Thanks. I had to do a 25-meter dash to get that nice curved tree in the frame before the clouds closed in again.

Good luck on your next adventure. Your web page is fantastic!

Thanks. This is the typical afternoon clouds or fog( fog = clouds that are close to the ground). It meant that for most of the trip we couldn't see much in the afternoon, but once in a while it would open up like this, always a breathtaking moment!

Thanks again. This was one of those mountain magic moments. I'm glad I was able to capture it. I have a large print of this photo hanging on the wall just above me now!
