Trekking Kalapatthar and the base camp of Everest
The trek begins at about 2840 meters above sea level, then climbs gradually up to 5364 meters (base camp of Everest) and then to 5575 meters (Kala Patthar).
The majority of the trek will take place above 3000 meters. Namche, Tyangboche, Phortse and Dingboche are the main villages of this region.
The trail goes up and down most of the time, so it is necessary that hikers prepare physically before making this trek.
The route that we propose is a classic period: it can increase or decrease it to your liking.
