This trek becomes all the more cherishable because of the company of friendly and loyal Sherpas. The highest point of the trek is Kala Patthar (5,545m) from where we get a panoramic view of the Mt.Everest 8,848 m and surrounding peaks. There will be plenty of time to enjoy the culture of the Sherpas and visit ancient monasteries, walk through the towns and explore the shops, stop at any of the numerous teahouses sip a glass of sweetened tea or Chang [Millet beer, for the brave hearts] and get a taste of hospitality unique to the Sherpas. Beautiful, multi-hued prayer flags, prayer wheels and intricately carved Mani stones line every hilltop, rock wall and trailside singing
prayers to the gods with every breeze and every passing traveler.
