Another incredible draw to this trek is the climb of Kala Patthar (5,550m). Steep, and challenging, yet completely worthwhile for the arresting views you will find of Mt Everest (8,848 m). Furthermore, Passing through the beautiful monasteries and seeing the fine carvings on the stone of the Mani walls gives visitor a touch of the richness of the Buddhist faith.
