We will stop briefly at Kala Patthar (5545m) – literally meaning ‘black rock’ – which offers an unrivalled summit-to-summit view of Mount Everest. After doing some exploring and taking pictures, we will depart Kala Patthar and fly towards Kongde Ri (6187m) which is home to the world’s highest full-service luxury resort – Yeti Mountain Home (YMH) Kongde. At the resort, we will sit outside to enjoy awesome panoramic views of the Himalayas with Everest itself towering in the middle of it all.
