Everest Base Camp Trek-Best View Of Everest-Kala Patthar-5643 Meters
Exhausting, especially after a roundtrip trek to Everest Base Camp the previous day, a hike up Kala Patthar could be the real highlight of your EBC adventure. This was my second EBC trek in four years so I was familiar with the challenge of walking to base camp, then turning around back to Gorakshep for a night’s rest before trekking up Kala Patthar. As much as I love the mountains and the challenge, I’m not particularly fond of walking in the dark, which is what is required should you desire to make it to the top for sunrise. It’s all of course worth it once you’re up there, staring at the highest mountains on the planet and the expanse of the Khumbu Valley. Ama Dablam peak literally looks like a painting with it’s surrounding backdrop. I’ve met people who were too tired to climb Kala Patthar after the long day to reach Everest Base Camp. It’s a shame because this really is the highlight of the trek, at the least, equal to reaching EBC.
