Trekking from Gokyo to Machhermo. After a more than succesfull trek to Kala Pattar, Everest Base Camp and Gokyo, I start to retrace my steps back to Lukla airport, but via a different way still offering fantastic landscapes.

Continuing to descend. The Ngozumba glacier is now very narrow and just more than a river.
