Mount Everest, the greatest challenge, and the most famous mountain on earth. It is endowed with unique beauty, mystery and mood. The Nepali name, Sagarmatha, means "head touching the sky" and in Sherpa, Chomolungma, means "Mother Goddess of the world.”
The South Col route on the Nepalese side of Mt. Everest is the way taken by late Sir Edmund Hillary and Late Tenzing Norgay Sherpa, who successfully climbed the top in 29 May 1953 registering their names as the first to ever climb the highest summit in the world and establish themselves as heroes of the adventure world.
The Everest climbing expedition has been successfully organized and executed many times since then, but this should not lull prospective Everest climbers into complacency. Everest is a deadly mountain. Noting this, one cannot approach the mountain with anything but with serious determination and a focused mountaineering attitude.

Trek from Lobuche to Kala Patthar via Gorakshep (m.) Trek up the valley following the rocky moraine path, view icy glacial ponds and icebergs down below the Khumbu glacier. After the last rocky moraine dunes, a short downhill walk brings you to Gorakshep, the flat field below Kala Patthar (5545m) and Mt. Pumori (7145m.) Gorakshep is the location of the original Everest Base Camp with the new camp being further up the valley. The walk is gradual until you reach a rocky spot; from there another uphill climb for half an hour brings you to Kala Patthar. From the top of Kala Patthar, Everest seems just at a stones throw distance. The panoramic view from this spot is something to cherish and you feel ecstatic being at the top of the world. With all the higher snow capped giants that dominate all around, it is truly a magnificent spot to be on a clear sunny day. Stay overnight at lodge
