14th April , 2012 - Gorak Sheep – Kala Patthar - Pheriche

Our last mission of significance was to climb up to the Khala Patar, a “hill” of 5500 meters. We woke up at 5 am and had a cup of tea and then begun the climb. It was a tough 2 hours climb up a steep slope that didn’t seem to end. Finally we reached the top and climbed up the slim rock and could enjoy the amazing view of Everest and it’s neighbor peaks. We also had the traditional photo with Pumori in the background. After some biscuits and water we went down to Gorak Sheep and had a well earned breakfast.

After breakfast we began the trek down to Pheriche, a walk of about 4 hours. We were really tired when we got there and it was amazing to take a hot shower after some really cold days up in the mountains.
