On the summit is a large group of stone-pile memorials to lost Sherpas and climbers. It also affords great border views including Khumbutse, Lingtren, and Pumori.

In April/May the trail is busy with porters carrying in supplies and the site is a riot of colorful tents perched on the dirty ice. For the rest of the year, it is a bleak and lonely place set below the impressive ice walls (and avalanches) of the MahalangurHimal along the Tibetan border. From west to east, the main peaks are Pumori, Lingtren, Khumbutse, and Nuptse. Everest and the Cwm are hidden behind buttresses. Trek back to Gorakshep for the night at the Lodge.

Walking at a high altitude is more physically demanding than walking at lower altitudes; however, if we are in excellent health with average physical fitness and have a positive attitude, self-confidence, and strong determination, we can accomplish this trek.

Exercising and jogging regularly for some weeks before the trip is a good idea to enhance our strength and stability.
