1 May , 2013 - Hike to Kalapatthar and Trek back to Pheriche

Up earlier than before, at 3:40. The plan is to climb up the mountain called Kahla Pathar (5545) and to be at the top at the sunrise. I woke up with headache after just little sleep and then started noose bleeding which was hard to stop on this altitude. That stopped me from going with Bengt. // Anita

My guide Phula and I started the trekk to Khala Pathar with headlights on our foreheads, at 4:00. It was really tough! It's hard to eat on this altitude and my stomach is not on its best shape. After a short trekk I feel that my energy is lacking. Lucky me for having two energy bars with me. We continued and reach the summit at the same time the sun rise. The view from the top is surrounded by many of the world's highest mountains. It was unbelievable and powerful. I took a lot of photo and I filmed the view, but it's probably hard to make it justified with that. We took a cup if tee before we started climb downhill. 

Now we have started our way back to Lukkla and reached Pheriche (4240) 16:00. Todays trekk 12 hour. I can feel the different on the altitude very well. It will be very nice to go and sleep in my sleeping bag after this last tough day.
