Trek to Everest B. C. passes through picturesque Sherpa villages and culminates in the "ascent" of Kala Patthar (5,500 m), from where classic views of Everest and its surrounding peaks are available. Most of the trek is spent in the Khumbu and Imja Valleys, above the altitude of (3,000 m), where the massive peaks of the Eastern Himalaya dominate the skyline. Beautiful, multi-hued prayer flags, prayer wheels and intricately carved mani stones line every hilltop, rock wall and trail side, singing prayers for everyone's well-being. There is plenty of time to enjoy the culture of the Sherpas and visit ancient monasteries.
