Day 15: Gorakshep(5,140masl) to Kalapathar Peak (5,550masl)

18 Days Winter Self-Guided Solo Hike from Jiri to Mt. Everest Base Camp (5,364masl)
November 27 to December 15, 2015


The next day after the successful EBC trek, I aimed for the highest extreme altitude record on my amateur hiking career. The trail going to Kalapathar is very steep, slippery and windy. I consider this trek as difficult, not the mention that I have to defy also the altitude sickness effects. Usually this trek is made early morning for sunrise viewing which is at the back of Mt. Everest and sunset which is at the right side when facing the Mt. Everest. Because of my exhaustion, I trekked the wrong direction which I had a crucial lost time. Instead of blaming myself, I still continue to go to the right direction giving me an hour trek at more than 5,000masl elevation. The hardwork pays-off when I saw Mt. Everest upclose together with its base camp, I was alone going up.

REMINDER: Please take note that my trekking hours is of below average, I'm always lagging for around an hour to the next destination. Also, check-out bill in the morning day after includes lodging for 1 room, dinner and breakfast.
