Route Climbed: Normal from Gorak Shep Date Climbed: September 30, 2003  Sucess!

I went in the morning and whiteout conditions didn't allow for much a view, but Kala Pataar is an almost "manditory" waypoint for anyone doing the Everest Base Camp trek.

Fun, and what a view. I'll reiterate, like everyone else, it's not really much of a 'peak,' per say, but that isn't any reason not to do it. It's more than worthwhile as a diversion if you're up that way anyway.

Route Climbed: Normal route from Gorak Shep Date Climbed: May 1987  Sucess!

Beautiful views all around, perfect day for photos and climbing/hiking. The trek through the Kumbu was also a highlight, as were the many Monasteries and wonderful people along the trail from the Lukla Airport to base camp of Everest. I bought a bottle of coca-cola for $1 near Gorak Shep at a Lodge(??), wonder how much it is now?

Wind at the summit was something else, but the view of Everest is the most spectacular you will ever see. An amazing experience.

I do not consider this a peak - it is a hill which you walk up! Nevertheless it is useful for acclimatisation before trying a trekking peak in the region and this is what I did. I really enjoyed walking up this hill - I got a great picture of everest as well.

Magda Soler and Lluis Canals summited in a very clear day. The West Face of Nuptse is as impressive as Sagarmatha itself. Very interesting to see the Lho La, a high pass to Tibet.

Route Climbed: Lukla-Namche Bazaar-Lobuje- Gorak Shep Date Climbed: 4/20/92  Sucess!

A spur of Pumori... with lots of false summits. Breathtaking views of Everest across the valley. I was there early (summited about 10AM) to see Everest before the afternoon clouds covered the summit- then back to Lobuje that night.
