Everest Base Camp Kalapatar Trek - 15 Days

This stunning trek visits both the base camp and Kala Patar (5545m), a viewpoint recognised as the best point to see Mount Everest. We take a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, hight above the Dudh Koshi Valley and the adventure begins as we land at its tiny airstrip. From the airstrip we trek north through pine forest to the bustling Sherpa 'capital', Namche Bazaar, from where we head to the magnificent Thyangboche Monastery. Here, in the shadow of the Everest and Ama Dablam, and surrounded by prayer flags. As we ascend, the alpine scenery becomes more rugged and we climb above the treeline to reach Dingboche in the Imja valley for further acclimatization and exploration. It is then a steady ascent, following glacial moraines, to Lobuje and then on to our lodge at Gorak Shep. From here we ascend to the summit of Kala Patar for brilliant views of Mount Everest and a breathtaking 360-degree panorama of the world's highest mountains. We then trek to the historic site of Everest Base Camp before returning to Lobuje and starting our journey back to Kathmandu.
