Ascent Trip Report

Climbed as part of a three week trek from Jiri to Everest Base Camp and back to Lukla. A simply stunning viewpoint; in many ways superior to Kala Pattar as you get to see four 8,000 metres peaks (Cho Oyu, Everest, Lhotse and Makalu), plus the Gokyo Lakes. A technically very easy but lung-busting climb.
