The typical appeal in this Kala Patthar and Everest Trek is the best view point from where one can have a close up view of the world’s highest mountain Mount Everest with its base camp and glacier.
Our Kala Patthar & Everest trek begins with a mountain flight from Kathmandu Tribhuvan international airport to Lukla airport. We then start from Lukla with a planned route to Phakding, Namche, Tengboche, Lobuche & top of Kalapatthar. The trek will take you through the traditional expedition route with many ups and downs, stone steps, green woods, muddy routes, narrow valleys, passing yaks, donkeys, and mountain goats walking through traditional villages to the Sherpa capital of the Khumbu, the bustling market villages of Namche Bazaar (3440m). Namche Bazaar being the largest town in that region is the place where we will stay for one day to acclimatize. Our journey to Kala Patthar takes us close up beneath the spectacular “Khumbu Icefall”. After reaching Lobuche, the next morning we hike up to the top of Kalapatthar. Though it’s a bit strenuous but we are confirmed to be rewarded with dramatic Himalayan scenes with extraordinary views of Nuptse (7816m), Everest (8848m) and Lhotse (8516m) when we get to the top. You get to experience and witness the view of these mighty mountains which in itself is already an achievement of a life time. Then we return down to Gorak Shep. And as we get to the end of our trek we start descending further down to Namche & Lukla and with a return flight to Kathmandu.
