Everest Kala Patthar Trek | Everest Region Trek -Royal Mountain Travel - Nepal

Everest Kala Patthar Trek – 14 days

One of the longer treks in Everest Region to explore the peaks and mountains along with high valleys

Trek up the Dudh Kosi to its source – a tranquil glacial lake below the huge Ngojumba glacier. There are trekkers here on the route to Base Camp allowing you to enjoy the quiet of the mountains, its birds and wildlife. The views from Gokyo Peak (5,200m) are stunning. Five summits over 8,000m are visible – Everest, Lhotse Shar, Lhotse, Makalu and Cho Oyu as well as the Ngojumba Glacier (the largest glacier in Nepal), moraine and lakes.

Some people have the idea that trekking is all sweat and hard work with no fun. This is far from the truth. Days are designed to be challenging, but not exhausting. When you choose the Everest Kala Patthar Trek, days begin with breakfast at the tea house you stay.  You will need to pack up your duffle bags before breakfast, as porters will set off early. To cover the magnificent sun rays that strike on the mountains, you will be on the trail by around 8 am. A lunch stop for a leisurely lunch will be around noon. Lunch usually takes about 2 hours, allowing plenty of time to explore the village or relax. The afternoon walk is shorter and you usually arrive around 4pm leaving time for excursions to nearby sites, nunneries, exploration of the village or simply relaxing with a book and catching up on your diary. Dinner is generally around 7pm.
