6th April , 2013 - HIke to Kala Pathar and back to Pheriche

Another day with 11 hours trekking. We had an early start at 05.30 heading to Kalapathar. Once we reached the top after 2,5 hours  it was worth every bit of effort that we certainly put in. The sun rose above Mount Everest. Back at the lodge after breakfast we started our return to Pheriche at 4200m. The second highlight of this day after Kalapathar was a divinely wonderful hot shower. The first shower for us since we started the trek on 28th April.  Here we are now in the cozy dining room full of people gathered around the stove.  We are all exhausted and happy to have accomplished our goal and on our way back.
