“well worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

This trek is a challenge but is worth it once you reach the top of kala pathar. It has stunning views of the highest mountains in the world.

“Phew! This one will test you! Early start or late afternoon to see the view at its best.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012 via mobile

This is not an easy wander. You will be tired by the time you get to the top but you are more than compensated by the unforgettable view the the mountains forming the top of the world. In retrospect I think an evening/sunset trip up may be more spectacular with the rosy pink hues of sunset on these lofty peak. However of you have no choice then just do it!

“window view of everest.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

The kala patter is one of the best peak(Natural tower) of Khumbu region, which is located on the way to Everest basecamp. We can see lots of mountain above 8000m and of course the world highest mountain (Everest) is in front of your eye. As say your are watching from windows.
