Trekking in Nepal and a big piece of cake!

The post I was just trying to write has been saved as a draft, I am tired and need to go home, but don’t want to skip Day 4 of The Ultimate Challenge… so I here is a short post about cake, or more specifically the cake in this photo;

Kalar Pattar Summit Cake

In 2006 I went trekking in Nepal for the second time, in this trek we headed to the Khumbu region with an aim of getting ourselves up Kala Pattar (5,500m), although I had a job that kept me relatively active at that time I did not undertake any trek training and wondered whether or not the summit was an attainable goal.

It was a magical trip, made all the more enjoyable by this man, a good friend, Sherpa and trekking guide, Chuldim Dorjee Sherpa –

There were 5 of us in our trekking party, and we had chosen a camping trek, it was freezing at night when we reached higher altitudes, our water bottles froze alongside of us in our sleeping bags!  It was a fantastic and memorable trek, we summited Kala Pattar, we had stunning views of Mt Everest, we ate a lot of dahl and rice, and then… on the evening after we had summited the cake above appeared after our dinner.  Cooked by our delightful trekking support crew on the camp fire, fabulous!

I would like to add a link here to Porters Progress Group if you are intending to go trekking in Nepal (or any other country) PLEASE make sure that your porters and guides are well looked after.  If you are trekking with a company find out how much they are paying their porters BEFORE you sign up and please make sure your porters have decent footwear and enough warm clothes when you are at altitude.

      It was fantastic! Nepal. it’s people and mountains are amazing… and the cake tasted great after our 3:30am start to the summit so we could see the sun rise over Everest, very special.
