Yes it is possible to go there. I believe the people of Nepal would be glad to see you after all the troubles they have been through. The trek to Kala Pattar is very strenuous, but anyone who is in reasonably good health can do it. Climb slowly and take time to enjoy the scenery because altitude sickness is a constant threat above 4000m. The view of Sagarmatha, Nuptse, Lotse and Pumo Ri from Kala Pattar's peak is the best view in the world.

Takeo, You can see the view I mentioned before by looking at the panoramic I stitched together from 19 separate telephoto shots I took on this same walk up Kala Pattar. It's in Panoramio right now and will probably be uploaded to G-E in a month or so.
