This area is as busy and commercialized as the Annapurna range. The culture of Sherpa people and their practice of Buddhism are impressive. The Everest Base camp elevation is about (5,034 m). It is not possible to see the Mt. Everest from the base camp Kalapatthar.

Black rock, with its elevation of (5,545 m) should be climbed to see the view of Mt. Everest. There will be a possibility of altitude sickness, while heading up to the mountains. If so, the only best and wise way to do is coming down immediately. Another possibility is starting the trek from Jiri, approximately 8 till 9 hours from Kathmandu. This takes seven days extra.
