Hoja  Valle del Khumbu - Kalla Pattar...

The Everest region is the region in conjunction with the visit of the Annapurna Nepal though access is more difficult.

It is the home of the famous Sherpa puelo the Solu-Khumbu is a paradise of lofty mountains. It features four of the fourteen highest mountains in the world. - Everest, Lhotse, Lhotse Shar and Cho Oyu- and a range of peaks that exceed 7,000m

The main villages of Khumbu, are named after legendary mountain guides and porters Sherpa, Namche Bazaar, Pangboche, Kunjung ...

On the Khumbu Glacier Valley get to the Circus mountains of Pumori, Lothse, i Nuptse Everest.

Getting to Gorashep village at 5,175 m. height will be aiming to reach the small peak then, i say small for the top of the mountains reodean him of Kallapattar to 5.640m., where we Pumori i just behind the other magnificent peaks.

Everything is the same demonic sublime i time, the mountain and its force attracts like a magnet, you want to go, reach, climb, ride, i what enters your eyes will absorb entendenimiento transporting you to the true states of ecstasy.

It's a tough trek, especially altitude sickness and cold unbearable doing up there. At night you can reach temperatures of 25 below zero, and as Logde, small houses where you sleep, are not too conditioned to the cold, because the cold is finally transforms into a true handicap trekk.

Altitude sickness is another problem, a council to try to control the breath, breathing many times and take the maximum air podamos.Pero I have to say with altitude sickness alters everything in the body and also depends on the body and every mind, and I would say even in spirit.

In any case much encourage anyone who feels drawn to the mountains, the experiencia is indescribable, unfathomable and sublime.

Total Km. 90.

After strong ascension & oacute; n 550m. it looked like it would never end.

Early in the afternoon the forest is filled with clouds, and after much sweat we reached Tengboche, where one of the most beautiful monasteries on the way to Everest, with monks that live here, call prayers, the temple can be visited, but the monks are very cautious on the subject that you can take pictures.

Buddhist Gompah m & aacute; s popularity outside of Tibet


The next day the idea was to go to Periche, but recommended that we were to sleep sa Dimboche because vientso in Periche are ruthless and turn the place into one of the m & aacute; s Khumbu cold. There is a health center that organizes lectures on psychology in height and other trekking related topics.

Periche is next to the river and is hidden destra Dimboche a MOUNTAIN. As

By ma & ntilde; ana to get up, like every day about 6 ma & ntilde; ana, the sky was clear and we could enjoy the view of Everest to the bottom with their characteristic tail

From 13h every day down the clouds, the temperature drops significantly and espurnas snow fall. Is very cold. At 6 pm the temperature is 8 degrees below zero.

In the logde (sleeping quarters) stoves do not go with him & ntilde; a, but with poop Jak, since there are not many trees around here, and poop Jak (kind of cow enduring heights) not it is a bad fuel.

We have accumulated 40 Km. And it shows that we're already adapting, but now we struck altitude sickness.

I have also been at 10am & nbsp; the ma & ntilde; ana was impossible to breathe, headache pounding the walls of my skull. We stopped in a small & ntilde; or you have a site, I started breathing fast and deep followed, and seems to have calmed down. Because you know the saying & quot; With thy walking slowly up there, eat little, sleep and breathe alone quickie & quot;.

After overcoming the headache everything went better, and we have overcome the slope of 580m. without difficulty.

From Lobuche is Pumori, Nuptse and Lopbuche East.

The scenery is absolutely demonic, where death dwells, there is nothing, nothing about anything, I can not imagine what could be on the summit of Everest ..... Symbol of humanity's struggle to overcome the forces of naturaleza and s SYMBOL mountaineering achievements. Walk m & aacute; s all & aacute; of STILL Gorashep past few shelters and climb to the vantage point of Kala Pattar is to experience the magic and splendor of this mountain & ntilde; a.

In ascenci & oacute; n indescribable cold, wind and & nbsp; lack of oxygen


Up the top, but before the summit Repechon kind of where we rested, we've taken a couple of glucose, and we enjoyed the view of Pumori and Everest.

The rise to the summit of Kalla Pattar was about 40 m. big rocks, no way, bareback through the rocks, and very pointed summit, barely fit 4 people, next the precipice, another view of the glacier.

300m of positive slope in 3 km. at this point it is killer.

When we made the cumber we descend to Lobuche to all caste & ntilde; a, from cold and to relieve altitude sickness


Tonight we have been at least 20 degrees below zero, and the conditions of logde pretty minimal, like food ....
