Geocache Description:

Kala Pattar (5545 meters)

On May 29, 1953, Edmund Hillary from New Zealand and Tenzing Norgay from Nepal became the first human beings to reach the top of Chomolungma (8848 meters) - called Mount Everest by the rest of the world.

This was about 50 years ago. In March 2001 we - Andi and me - did the 'Classic Everest Trek' from Jiri to Kala Pattar. This picture was taken a view hundred meters north of the summit of Kala Pattar. In the background you can see the Everest with its typical cloud.

To log this virtual cache you just have to enclose a similar picture to your posting. It should show you with the Everest in the background and if it is possible your GPS with your position. Maybe you could tell something about your hike, when you were there, how long it took you to get there, the route and so on.

Certainly I also accept all logs with pictures taken on the way from the basecamp to the summit of Mount Everest.

Enjoy your visit to beautiful Nepal.
