Standing at the height of 3867m, this monastery is located at the top of the ridge and surrounded by beautiful forest of dwarf figs and rhododendron. This place presents best of itself in the morning, with a spellbinding surmise and proof of purity in the world.

Trek to Kala Pattaris a hard trekking, it fatigues you, makes your lungs cry out loud for more oxygen till you get acclimatized but once you reach there, you will feel all the trouble getting there was worth it. Far from the bustling city, pollution and noise, you will find peace and purity there. The fantastic views of South face of the enormous Mt. Everest will spellbind you for moments.
