Kala Pathar Trekking
Kala Patar is the chief destinatin
for trekkers flying into Lukla. There's more to this trek than just a visit to
the Everest base camp. A breakthrough to Everest is the Gokyo valley with its
turquoise blue alpine lake and high vantage points that give sensational views
of Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho Oyu - four of the Nepal's as well as world's
eight highest peaks. The Jiri Trail is the traditional way to journey to Kala
Patar. If you take up this trail, you'll be taking the route originally taken by
Sir Edmund Hillary and his crew when they went to Everest. It's a much easier
trek now, with trekking lodges for accommodation available on the route.
down a hillside at the wreckage of a bus, not unlike the one I was riding on,
gave me very little in the sense of security as we rumbled on towards Jiri with
lumps in throats intact. This small village is the start of our little adventure
trek from Jiri to Goyko, deep in heart of the Himalaya of Nepal — "us" being a
group assembled as sort of an ad-hoc UN assembly.

above 8,000m that's ideal for trekking within the Everest region are: -
The setting of Goyko is surreal, with this beautiful, jade green alpine lake in
front of it and a staggering vista of peaks above. Just behind Goyko village is
the largest glacier in Nepal, called Ngozumpa, that snakes south from the
foothills of Cho Oyu.
Lhotse - Lhotse is the
fourth highest mountain in the Himalayas. Its long east-west crest is located
immediately south of Mount Everest, and the summits of the two mountains are
connected by the South Col, a vertical ridge that never drops below 8,000m.
Sometimes mistakenly Lhotse has been identified as the south peak of the Everest
massif. No serious attention was turned to climbing Lhotse until Everest had
finally been ascended. Lhotse first climbed in 1956 as an alternative route
towards the summit of Everest.
In addition to the main summit, there are two subsidiary peaks, Lhotse Shar,
which is immediately east of the main summit, and Nuptse, a high peak on the
mountain's west ridge.
