Comment: Graded ‘strenuous’ with walks of 6-8 hours on most days, reaching max. altitude of 5,545m. Although porters carry your main luggage on trek, you must be fit. Our goal is Kalar Patar for better views of Everest than those from Base Camp. Base Camp itself is also an intended goal, but this is dependent on weather, fitness & acclimatisation.
Group Size: 14 plus 4 guides and porters. Porters transport luggage.
