Everest Kalapather Trek - 16 Days

Everest Kalapathar TrekWe fly to Lukla and begin trekking through the land of the legendary Sherpas into the Sagarmatha (Everest) national park. Since the successful ascent of Everest the Khumbu region has enjoyed the international attention. We follow the classic trail to Namche bazaar, Khumjung, Pangboche and Lobuche to the Everest Base Camp and go on to Kalapatthar. From Tengboche to Pangboche (3,985m) the trail rises through meadows where graze yak.

After touring the monastery we set out and cross the Lobuche Khola to arrive at Pheriche. After crossing the moraines of the Changri Shar Glacier, we reach the sandy plain of Gorakshep. Then we climb up amongst large boulders to the broad summit of Kalapatthar (5,545m), which offers the best view of Everest and Khumbu Glacier.
