From the lodge the ascent is quite steep so we start very slowly at a steady rhythmic pace. Kala Pattar is the rocky hilltop below Pumori. It is a tough walk because of the altitude but the view from the top surpasses your wildest imagination. It will probably take a good hour and a half to reach the summit from Gorak Shep. From here Pumori, Nuptse, Changtse, Ama Dablam, Tawache, Kantega and Everest, the highest mountain in the world, surround us. Kala Patar is a very emotional experience and it is worthwhile spending as long as you wish in order to savour this special moment.

After the rigors of the last few days, today is a relatively short day where we can now look forward to a reduction in altitude and easier going as we retrace our ascent route. You have a chance to relax now that the hard part is over and concentrate on those aspects of mountain life that may have been overlooked on the way up. From Pheriche we cross the Khumbu Khola River and ascend a short steep trail to the top of a small ridge for great views of Imja Valley, Ama Dablam and Kantega.
