The trail to Gorak Shep goes ahead through the lateral moraine of the Khumbu Glacier. We pass through the pyramid sign post. Ahead on the trail we see crest of north ridge of Everest along with Mt. Pumori, Mahalangur, Lingtern, Khumbutse, Nuptse, etc. A small ascent would take us to Thangma Riju from where we perceive 360-degree vista of snowy mountians. Climbing steeply up to the top through the torrent of Changri glacier, we catch our first glimpse of Kala Patthar, a grey-green knoll beneath the Mt. Pumori. As we reach Gorak Shep, we will be surrounded by Snow-capped mountains. Climbing steeply up to the top through the torrent of changri glacier. Now, we catch our first glimpse of Kala Patthaer, a Grey-green knoll beneath the Mt. Pumori. When we reach Gorak shep, we will be surrounded by snow-capped mountains looming all around us including the top of the world - Mt. Everest. After a lunch, we take the trail to Everest Base camp through the once vast Gorak shep lake. Continuing straight ahead, we come through the Indian army mountaineer’s memorials. As we reach Everest Base Camp we cannot stop ourselves from appreciating the Everest climbers those take the hazardous route through the Khumbu icefall. Mountaineer's tents stand out in bright colors against all the dull gray surroundings. Nuptse, Khumbuste & Pumori are the mountains we can view from base camp. We cannot see actual view of Mt. Everest from here. By now we have met the ultimate objective of our trip. However, the sunset view from Kala Patthar is more admirable than the sunrise view, so it is suggested to visit Kala Patthar during sunset. As the setting sun's rays strike the snow capped mountains the resulting scenery is indescribable. For those trekkers who wish to continue to Kala Patthar, our guides and Sherpa’s co-ordinate your hike to Kala Patthar for amazing sunset view rather than waiting until the next day. Overnight in Gorak Shep at a local lodge with Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner basis.
