Video: Gokyo Lakes Trek with my 62-year-old mother


This video is about the stunning Gokyo Lakes Trek with my 62-year-old mother. After an unsuccesfull flight to Lukla with a small 14-seats plane we eventually took a helicopter, which was one of the most amazing things in my life. I almost shed a tear of happiness to be honest. Gokyo Lakes trek was a wonderful 11-days trek to 5 pristine lakes, along the largest glacier in the Himalayas with a final climb to Gokyo Peak (5357 m), from where we had a perfect panoramic view of the Himalayan Range including Mt. Everest (8848 m), the top of the world. And my mom made it!


Would you like to have the perfect backpack for hiking? I hiked two seasons with the Thule Women’s Versant Backpacking Pack, Fjord, 60 L

I am totally happy with this backpack. It comes in a man version as well and in different colors. I am sure you will love it!

This backpack is ideal especially for those who hike with a DSLR camera. You simply attach

Thule Versaclick DSLR Camera Holster, Black 

camera holster to the Thule backpack and the heavy camera will never again pull your neck or arm down and cause you pain. This camera holster is one of the best travel gadgets I have ever had.
