7th April , 2012 - Kala Pathar, 5545 meters over sea level

The day started at 4 am. We only took a cup of tea and then we started our walk towards Kalapathar. It was completely dark outside so we needed our headlights. It was full moon and the stars were really near. The trek was very steep and we climbed 500 meters in a fairly short span of distance. When we came to the summit of Kalapathar the sun came up and we got the most spectacular view of Everest and its neighboring peaks like Lhotse, Nuptse and Pumori. We have now reached the zenith of our trek, and will now start going back down. Finally some of the headache will disappear when we come under 5000 meter.
