Kala Pathar, Gokyo Ri Trek


22 Days 21 Night


Trip Introduction

It is the matter of fact that Mt.Everest cannot be observed from the base camp. So, most of the trekkers climb Kala Pattar (5545m.) which is situated on the southern flank of Pumori (7145m.). Not only Everest but also other mountain peaks such as Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Amadablam, Mt. Pumori, Mt. Thamserku, Mt.Kantega, Kwangde, and others can be seen from Kala Pattar.

Everest region offers varieties of trekking trails like- Everest Base Camp Trek, Kala Pattar Trek, Gokyo-Ri Trek, Gokyo Cho- La Pass Trek, Renjo La Pass Trek, Everest High Pass Trek, Everest View Trek, Everest Panorama Trek, Everest Comfort Trek, etc. Along the trail, the travelers would experience the typical Sherpa culture in the alpine settlements such as Lukla, Phakding, Monjo, Namche Bazaar, Khumjung, Thame, Tyangboche, etc. Being situated at higher altitude, the region has a high risk of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) if the due emphasis is not given for acclimatization. If symptoms like a headache, loss appetite and vomiting are seen, one has to immediately inform to the guide so that he would facilitate to take first aid treatment or take you to the nearby health post or he will take you down to the lower altitude.

Incredible Mountain views from Chukung, Kala Patthar, and Gokyo Ri. It includes all that the Khumbu has to offer including the enthralling villages and Tibetan Buddhist monasteries and the culture and warmth of the Sherpa people. After starting with a flight to Lukla we trek up to Kala Patthar 5,550m and then change direction off the main track to cross the Cho La pass 5,422m into the Gokyo Valley. We climb Gokyo Ri 5,488m for a panoramic view of the greatest mountain scenery in the world.
