Kala Patthar EBC Trek with Sherpa Guides

Duration: 15 Days   |   Based on 1 Review

Kala Patthar meaning “Black Rock” in English, lies at an elevation of 5,644.5 m (18,519 ft.) above the sea level, providing an awe-inspiring view of the stunning mountains. It is one of the highest points in the Himalaya that does not require any technical climbing skills, thus adding more popularity to it. The structure of Everest restricts a clear visibility of the Everest Summit from the Everest Base Camp due to which trekkers opt to climb up to Kala Patthar for a better view of the world-famous, Mt. Everest. Kala Patthar EBC trek with Sherpa guides leads its trekkers to a remarkable and unforgettable journey that touches their soul with its overwhelming beauty. Walking through the perfectly blended villages with the unique Sherpa culture and the blissful rhododendron forests is simply life changing. Trekkers are offered with wide ranges of flora and fauna, along with spiritually enlightening monumental landscapes and enchanting monasteries.

Kala Patthar EBC trek with Sherpa guides has always been challenging but is one of the most popular and wonderful trekking packages in the Khumbu Region.

The trekkers also get an opportunity to visit the UNESCO world heritage site, Sagarmatha National park along with tiny Sherpa villages, Khumbu valleys, and legendary monasteries over high Himalayan passes. The trail passes alongside the mesmerizing view of the splendid Himalayan giants including Mount Everest, Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Makalu, and Thamserku.
 

Furthermore, making our way through the alpine forests, stony trails, splashing waterfalls, glacial rivers, and monasteries, we reach Kala Patthar.
