Congratulations to our very own Bobby Bajram, just back from Nepal where he successfully completed Kala Patthar ascent, an amazing 5,550 metre climb. The climb is part of Bobby’s preparation to take on Mt Everest that Bobby intends to undertake next year.
Bobby follows in the footsteps of trekkers to Everest Base Camp, who summit Kala Pattar. The climb provides the most accessible point to view Mt. Everest from base camp and all the way to its summit. Bobby was “blown away by the views from almost anywhere on Kala Pattar of Everest and the surrounding mountains.”
The trip was not without its moments with several large avalanches in the area, fortunately these were not too close to Bobby. “But the noise that they generated gave a real perspective to the size of the region” said Bobby.
Kala Pattar is a small peak literally meaning “black rock”. The mountain is located right at the foot of Pumori (7161m) and above Gorakshep on the way to Everest Base Camp.
