Kalapathar

























































































































At 18,192 feet/5545 meters Kalapathar had one of most amazing views that I have ever seen. From the summit, you can view 4 of the top 10 tallest mountains in the world, Changste {24,770 ft.}, Nuptse {25,850 ft.}, Lhotse {27,890 ft.} and Everest {29,035}. I left LaBouch at 6:30 am and arrived at Gorashep at 9:00, put clothes in the room and left 3o minutes later to climb Kalapathar. We summited at 11:40. It was an almost vertical climb and I was exhausted but the view made up for it.
