16th April, 2013 - Hike to Kalapatthar

We were quite tired after yesterdays trek to Everest Base camp and had a late morning. After breakfast some of us went up to Khala Pattar (5545) while others rested at the lodge. Finally two of us made it the whole way to the top where there was a magnificent view over base camp, the ice fall and Everest summit.

After lunch it was time to head back to Lobuche but the weather got cold and windy and the relatively easy trek really got into our bodies. In Lobuche we will have another night before descending around 700 meters to Dingboche, and preparations for our big goal, Island Peak. Now we are sitting by the fireplace after dinner, talking about the events of the day and life in general.
