Kala Pathar  Sucess!

Unfortunately cloudy, so I couldn't see Everest. But a lovely view over Khumbu valley! But I was happy to succeed both EBC and Kala Pathar.

EBC & Kala Patar  Sucess!

Part of a long scenic trek up to Everest Base Camp, 34 miles the way the crow flies but it felt more like 100miles! Took us 9 days and acclimating to 18,000'+ was not really a problem. Day of summit we went from Gorak Shep tea house (about 2 hours) and had an awesome view of the sunrise over Mt Everest.

Summated with a bunch of happy clients. Took plenty of photos, enjoyed the views and chatted with the little Angel who is placed up there by the organization "United Hope".

The views!  Sucess!

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

Breathtaking views!  Sucess!

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.

Everest view  Sucess!

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.

Nice day  Sucess!

We walked Gokyo trek crossing Chola pass to everest BC trek. We walked in the morning to Everest Base camp from Gorak Shep and in the afternoon we climbed Kala Pattar with wonderful views.

Normal route from Gorak Shep  Sucess!

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.
