Kala Patthar Trek Nepal 12 days itinerary

Plan your trip to Kala Patthar Peak if you want to explore the untouched beauty of Nepal. This Kala Patthar trek will take you through one of the most charming trekking regions, but it is also a challenging trail. However, it is well worth the effort. Viewing the top of the world’s highest mountain Everest 8848 will not only provide you with incredible views, but you will also enjoy a thrilling adventure journey.

The Kala Patthar trek is in fact the standard trekking route for Everest Base Camp. Kala Patthar is a peak located just south of EBC with amazing views of Everest and surrounding peaks to be seen from the peak. There are many different routes to reach the Kala Patthar, but the most famous viewpoint of the Peak rises to 5,545 meters above sea level, which is on a parallel path with the Everest base camp’s ultimate distance. During the Everest Base Camp trek, you will not complete your trek if you do not summit Kala Patthar Peak during the trek.

The Everest Kala Pathar Trek takes you through the heart of the Himalayas, through river banks, through Sherpa villages, and through mountain scenery that is characterized by rare species of flora and fauna. While walking under the gigantic Himalayas, you will be able to experience the unique culture of the Sherpa people, Buddhist monasteries that date back centuries, Chortens, Mani walls, and hardy Yaks as well. It is not uncommon for you to have to cross the suspension bridge over the raging river on a regular basis.

There is a bit of fear and a lot of joy associated with it. You may be able to see wild animals such as the Himalayan Goat (Thar/Jharal), Musk Deer, colorful birds “Daphe”  Nepal National Birds, and other species, during the EBC Kalapatthar Trekking. Snow leopards live in Khumbu, which is also the home of the mysterious yeti. The Everest Kala Patthar Trek features Mt. Everest Base Camp, the most famous viewpoint Kalapathar / Kala Patthar, Khumbu Glacier, Khumbu Icefall, glacial lakes, and breathtaking mountain scenery.

Climbing from Gorakshep to Kala Patthar peak

The next morning, the Gorakshep to Kala Patthar peak hike needs to begin early with a flash torchlight. The hike from Gorakshep to Kala Patthar takes about one and a half hours to summit the peak and half an hour for the descent. The 1.2 km distance between Gorakshep and Kala Patthar must be hiked slowly because of the high altitude, but you cannot walk faster due to the thin air. Ascend the south face of Kala Patthar’s north side from Gorakshep up a vague path with touch light.

Getting up early and doing the ascent in the dark are highly recommended, so once you find the path at the northern end of Gorakshep, get your head down and trudge uphill! Despite being on screen, the path is well-beaten and easy to follow. Once you reach the summit of Kala Patthar, you can sit down and enjoy the view – it is quite spectacular. When you reach the summit by dawn, it is even better because the sun rises directly behind Everest and bathes you in light. After a couple of hours on the summit, descend to Gorakshep and begin your long hike back.
