While most people come here to see the sunrise because weather can be bad in the afternoon, we opted to see it at the sunset, since the weather was clear but it took us 2 hours to get to the top, and weather can change fast in the mountain. Luckily, it was clear the whole afternoon. At sunrise, you can only see silhouette of the mountains. This is the view from Kala patthar. The peak with the most golden light is Everest.

Kala Patthar, meaning 'black rock' in Nepali and Hindi, is a mountain in the Nepalese Himalayas. It appears as a big brown bump below the impressive south face of Pumori (7,161 m/23,494 ft). Many trekkers in the region of Mount Everest will attempt to summit Kala Patthar, since it provides the most accessible point to view Mt. Everest from base camp to peak (due to the structure of Everest, the peak cannot be seen from the base camp). The views of Everest, Lhotse, and Nuptse are spectacular from almost anywhere on Kala Patthar.

Dear Way simply beautiful

I must compliment you for choosing the evening time for this fabulous capture of Everest, Way. I've been there 3 times in my life and, like the rest of them, early in the morning. Never seen the mountain that clearly and that too with that divine sunset glow on Everest and the neighbouring peaks. The view is crystal clear including that of the Icefall and Khumbhu Glacier.
The colours of the sunset are mind blowing in this picture.
Thanks for sharing this superb image and best regards.

Hallo Way
This is a lovely scenery which you captured so beautifully. It has a peaceful and serene atmosphere that surrounds it and I think just to be nearby and breath in the fresh air could only be just what the doctor has ordered. I agree with Maciek, the colours are amazing. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello Way.
This is a dream of a shot with the light catching at the peak glowing like fire. Excellent image and superb sharpness and details of this composition.
Thanks and kind regards.
