It is the matter of fact that Mt.Everest can not be observed from the base camp. So, most of the trekkers climb Kala Pattar (5545m.) which is situated on the southern flank of Pumori (7145m.). Not only Everest but also other mountain peaks such as Mt. Lhotse , Mt. Nuptse , Mt. Amadablam , Mt. Pumori , Mt. Thamserku , Mt.Kantega, Kwangde and others can be seen from Kala Pattar.
Everest region offers varieties of trekking trails like- Everest Base Camp Trek, Kala Pattar Trek, Gokyo-Ri Trek,, Gokyo Cho- La Pass Trek, Renjo La Pass Trek, Everest High Pass Trek, Everest View Trek, Everest Panorama Trek, Everest Comfort Trek, etc. Along the trail, the travelers would experience the typical Sherpa culture in the alpine settlements such as Lukla, Phakding, Monjo, Namche Bazaar, Khumjung, Thame, Tyangboche, etc. Being situated at higher altitude, the region has high risk of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) if due emphasis is not given for acclimatization.
