We climbed Kala Patthar end of March at about 1pm. It was difficult going with the altitude but not as bad as other mountains we climbed. The views are amazing from the top with Everest clearly visible and the Khumbu icefall. Definitely recommend doing this.

Start early to get the stunning view of Everest with the sunrise from this point is amazing. It is uphill walk and slow at this altitude but really worth climbing. Spending half an hour would give you everything. It is Phenomenal spiritual and exuberant experience

Most people attempt to summit Mt Kala Patthar before dawn on the morning after visiting Everest Base Camp. At 5,545m/18,192ft, it's probably the highest most EBC trekkers will get. Many can't muster the energy to get up; some only get part of the way up...More
