Mirror on the Mountain

mountain range reflects on river surface

Kongde Lodge is the last lodge on the Yeti Trail, and but it is not the apex of your trek.

Four rather challenging hours up from the lodge (take a guide), at an altitude of 5000m, sits the beautiful blue pearl of Kongde Lake. Perhaps the most wonderful of Everest region’s stunning high altitude lakes, the serene calmness of its turquoise water is a dramatic mirror, that doubles your view of the lofty peaks all around: including Everest, Lhotse Makalu, Ama Dalam, Thamserku. An eight-hour round trip for the chance to see your reflection in this otherwordly lake that so few will ever know; now that is an apex!
