Unbelievable 360 degree views of the mountains here. A highlight on what was a pretty fantastic trek in many respects.

We climbed from the Pumori base camp side, which turned out to be quite a bit of a scramble over big rocks, some of which were not too stable. Then we strolled down the normal route which is a beautiful path in the meadows with stunning views all the way.

Nice view of the Everest but the area on top is tiny and rapidly gets crowded with tourists that have no respect for the majestic scenery. Overall, liked the peace of Gokyo Ri a lot more.

It was quite crowded in Gorak Shep, so we departed early in the morning to get to the top before the crowds. (Because of this I finished dressing en route and put on my gloves five minutes later than should have. Result: slight frostbite in three fingers, which healed in a week, but my hands became more sensitive to cold than before.) Perfect weather, breathtaking views, unforgetable.
(A túra a Baraka elsõ Everest alaptábor túrája volt Nádi Laci nagyszerû vezetésével.)

Hiked up just after dawn from Gorak Shep in an hour. Stunning views -- probably the best I've seen anywhere.

We had clear weather and great views of Everest all the way from Phortse. The day we hiked up Kala Pataar, there was a bit of cloud cover that hid the mountain, but it was still a fantastic hike. Nepal is such a great place to walk about.

Everything is a little strenuous when you're at these altitudes, especially when you scramble straight up! I wish I would have stayed up there longer...

Early in the morning weather was perfect and the views were great. This is the place you CAN'T miss when trekking to Everest BC.

Second time to this spot. Phenomenal grandstand view of Everest/ Nuptse and back down the Khumbu valley to Ama Dablam, etc. A popular but not to be missed spots on any trek through the Khumbu. Dont' listen to the argument over Gokyo Ri v. Kala Pataar, they both give different and stunning views. Just hike up them both! If you have clear weather, I recommned sunset. Probably the best alpinglow I've ever witnessed. On the way back down the moon rose over Everest's south shoulder. What a magical moment!

Great views of the area though
