Everest black stone trek is a trek towards the Everest Base Camp and Kalapatthar. Among other places in Himalayas, Kalapatthar is not so well known. Kalapatther is an Indian word. In English, we can call it as black stone. There are so many black stones close to the hills of Gorakshep. Thus, people named this place as Kalapather or black stone.  We view the spectacular view of Mt. Everest with other Himalayas from Kalapatthar which is one of the best View Points in the Everest region.
