Peiku Tso, North Western Himalayas, Tibet [5,000 m/16,405 ft]

Peiku Tso is a beautiful alpine lake located near Shishapangma (8,013m/26,289ft), the 14th highest mountain in the world, just north of the Lalung La mountain pass. This remote lake sees very few tourists, and is a bright turquoise color all year round. The drive to the lake alone is worth it with excellent views of Himalaya Mountains.

Here I was trying to shoot pictures of my driver, who loved having his picture taken and guide goofing off next to the lake.
