We started at 4am in the dark to climb to ‘Kala Pattar’ peak. At (5545 m) the highest point I ever reached. No torch and quite a dangerous narrow path to the point which gave the most amazing view across the Himalaya. The point of leaving so early was to catch the sun as it rose over the mountains which later I regret as it did not help to take good picture for Everest. Everest itself doesn’t look beautiful comparing to the other amazing peaks around it!
. As you climb to 5500m over huge rocks trying not to fall into the gaps and keep your balance on the snow you are also gasping for air because there is less oxygen which is also fuelling the crazy headache you have.
We spent about 20 minutes than we descent down which was much easier than ascending specially with the appearing of the sun which gave a pleasant warming to my frozen fingers!
