Everest Base Camp and Kala Pattar trek offers an enduring experience of natural beauty, geological magnificence and profound cross-cultural discovery. The Sherpa residents of Khumbu, the great valley below Mount Everest, believe that all things - mountains, plants and animals are sacred. This trek is classic approach to Gokyo and Kalapattar the highest point on earth. Solukhumbu is justifiably famous, not only for it's proximity to the world's highest mountain but also for its Sherpa villages and Monasteries.

The primary goal of an Everest trek is the Everest Base Camp at an elevation of about 5,340 m but as Everest can not be seen from the base camp, we climb Kalapattar, an unassuming meter bump on the southern flank of Mt. Pumori (7,145 m). As this trek has no trail to make circle, we therefore have to make to and from same route. This is the only disadvantage of this trek. The trek starts in Lukla after 45 minute mountain flight from Kathmandu. Clients carry day pack only and walk at their own pace. The walking hour will be about 6-7 hours a day.
