Photographer's Note

Kala Patthar is the ultimate destination on this trek. Even though the end destination is really the first Everest Basecamp before we turn around and head back. But from the base camp you actually don’t have the view of Everest. The whole area is beautiful and so impressive but people have different expectation. But the ultimate view of Everest lies up on the peak of Kala Patthar. From this shot you can see the little village of Gorakshep where most trekkers stay overnight and ascent to Kala Patthar to see the sun rise over Everest. You can also see the trail leading up the peak of Kala Patthar. Kala Pattar itself is not much, just a mound of black rocks, It is the view from up there that we go for, which I posted before.
