Kala Pathar Trek is a combination of Mt Everest Base Camp and the popular viewpoint Kalapathar. As most trekkers have a dream to visit Mt. Everest at least once in a lifetime, as result all the tea houses and trekking trails have crowded during the high season. But Everest Base Camp Kala Pathar Trekking gives you access to the Sagarmatha national park through the alternative trail to make the trip unique. The destination is the same as the EBC Trek package but we guide you to make a different experience through the wilderness side trip and less frequented tail. If possible we take an alternative route while coming down to Lukla rather than retrace the same trail.
Kala Pathar Trek trail goes through the heart of the Himalayas following the river bank, Sherpa villages, amazing mountain scenery, rare flora, and fauna. Unique Sherpa culture, century-old Buddhist monastery, Chorten, Manewall, and hard of Yaks add charm while walking beneath the gigantic Himalaya. Often you need to cross the suspension bridge above the raging river, it makes you a bit of fear and a lot of joy. During EBC Kalapathar Trekking the trail goes inside the Sagarmatha National Park, where you might have a chance to sight wild animals such as; the Himalayan Goat (Thar/Jharal), Musk Dear, colorful birds “Daphe” – Nepal National Birds, and many other species. Khumbu is the inhabitance of the Snow leopard and the land of the mysterious creature Yeti. Mount Everest Base Camp, the most famous viewpoint Kalapathar/ Kalapatar, Khumbu Glacier, Khumbu Icefall, Glacier Lakes, and breathtaking mountains scenery including Mt. Everest are landmarks of the Everest Kalapathar Trek.
Everest Base Camp Kalapathar Trekking begins at Lukla after a short scenic flight from the capital city of Kathmandu. Then walk through the Sherpa Villages; Chaurikharka, Ghat, Phakding, and Manjo often following Dhudha Koshi Riverbank and pine and Rhododendron forest. It is suggested to take a rest at Namche Bazaar to acclimatize the body properly before getting in high elevation. On this day you may visit the Sagarmatha National Park information center, Sherpa Museum, Monastery, Everest View Hotel, Syangbuche, and Khumjung Village for Yeti Skull. Continue to walk to Mt Everest Base Camp through the Tengboche, Pangbuche, and Dingboche villages. To make your trip unique, we suggested visiting one of the best viewpoints Nangkhar Tshang Peak (5,615m), just above the Dingboche. From there you have a 360-degree view of many mountains including the three world's highest mountains Mt. Makalu (8,463m), Lhotse (8,749m), Cho Oyu (8,201m), and Imja Valley view. Finally, get to Mt Everest Base Camp an elevation of 5,360 meters through Lobuche. Gorekshep is the last teahouse of this trekking route. The view from Kalapathar is unbelievable, as this is one of the best viewpoints in the Everest region, many mountains can see from here, especially Mt. Everest's view from the nearest distance. Except freezing cold, the sunrise and sunset view is best from Kalapathar.
Collecting lifetime experience in the Himalayas, you will come down the same trail till Pangbuche and take an alternative trail to the Porche village to avoid crowds. Most of the trekkers use the main trekking trail but we at Nepal Mother House try to make your trip different than others, so our expert Local Sherpa Guide leads through the beautiful villages that just a few trekkers have explored yet. The EBC Trek goes to Phortse/Phorche Village, Khumjung, Khunde, and Thame, and back to Lukla. Kala Pathar EBC Trekking can do whole in the year around but we at Nepal Mother House recommend spring (March-May) and autumn (Sept to November). Except for the cold, winter is also a perfect time for EBC Trek. Here we have designed Everest Kala Patthar Trek for 18 Days however you can customize your trip according to your requirements.
