Another gentle hour leads up to Phakding.

The trail meanders through pine forest, along the Dudh Koshi River, crossing suspension bridges via the Sherpa villages of Benkar, Chumoa, Monjo, and Jorsale: entrance to the Sagarmatha National Park and permit checkpoint; with tranquil views of glistening Thamserku (6,618m/21,714m). The trail continues along the riverbed to the confluence of the Bhote and Dudh Koshi Rivers. It then climbs steadily, crossing the high Tenzing- Hilary suspension bridge: with inspiring glimpses of Everest and the Nuptse – Lhotse ridge. A final three-hour ascent through pine forest leads to the prosperous trading and administrative town of Namche Bazaar.

  • Meals: r
  • Accommodation: Guest House

A day for rest at Namche Bazaar for acclimatization, it is an ideal place to spend a rest day for acclimatization to the high altitude before heading off towards Tyangboche. For acclimatization, you walk up to Khumjung where you can visit a monastery. You can also enjoy the wonderful views of Everest, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, Nuptse, Lhotse, Tawoche, and Kwangde, and so on. Or you can take an hour's walk up to Syangboche (3800m.) where Everest View Hotel is situated above Namche for an outstanding view of Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, and Kusum Kangaru walk downhill back to Namche Bazzar overnight in lodge.

  • Accommodation: Guest House

The trail climbs up from the town and then contours around the hillside, offering great views including Everest and Khumjung. Look out for spotted deer, Himalayan tahrs, and birds – including the colorful (male) Danphe pheasant (Nepal’s national bird). The trail rises to Sanasa where the routes to Gokyo and Everest BC fork. The trail to the right then descends to cross the Dudh Koshi (past water driven prayer wheels) on a suspension bridge near PhunkiThenga (3,250m/10,663ft), the lowest point north of Namche Bazaar. It then enters the ImjaKhola Valley and rises steeply, through dwarf conifers and rhododendron forest, for a two-hour pull, to the hilltop village of Tengboche. Their famous Gompa is set against the backdrop of AmaDablam, Nuptse, Everest, Kangtega, and other peaks. At full moon, in October/November they hold the colorful Mani Rimdu festival which includes masked dancing and Tibetan Opera in the monastery courtyard. Visit the monastery during the afternoon.

Today’s trail descends to Debuche: a scattered stone village with a nunnery, chortens, and long mani wall. Cross the suspension bridge over the ImjaKhola and gradually ascend to Pangboche with views of towering AmaDablam (6,856m/22,495ft perhaps the most beautiful mountain in the Everest region). The trail then follows the river fairly closely as it gradually rises to its confluence with the LobucheKhola and continues up to Dingboche: the last year-round Sherpa settlement in the region. Different views of AmaDablam rise above the terraced fields of barley, buckwheat, and potatoes. The fields are walled to protect crops from icy winds and animals during the short growing season.

  • Accommodation: Lodge | Teahouse

This is another scheduled rest day on the trek and will assist your fitness and oxygen intake at the higher altitudes to follow. An enjoyable 3-4 hrs sidewalk, 400m climb to NangkartshangGompa, on the ridge north of Dingboche village can be the best choice. This vantage point offers Mt. Makalu (8,463m) the fifth highest mountain in the world to the east and awesome view of Mt. AmaDablam and valley floor.

The trail climbs to a ridge providing towering views of Taboche Peak and Cholatse and continues through Yak pastures before crossing a wooden bridge over a roaring stream to Duglha (4,620m/15,158ft). The trail then ascends steeply for an hour, up the gravely terminal moraine of the Khumbu Glacier. On the summit is a large group of stone-pile memorials to lost Sherpas and climbers. It also affords great border-views including Khumbutse, Lingtren, and Pumori. Everest is hidden behind the towering wall of Nuptse and Lhotse. Follow the valley upstream for about an hour to Lobuche.

  • Accommodation: Lodge | Teahouse

A long but rewarding day Follow the windblown and rocky path along the barren moraine of the Khumbu Glacier to the last village at Gorakshep. After an early lunch, set out on the faint trail to the world’s highest Base Camp, on the Khumbu Glacier: opposite the dreaded icefall – the most dangerous section of an Everest ascent. In April/May the trail is busy with porters carrying in supplies and the site is a riot of colorful tents perched on the dirty ice. For the rest of the year, it is a bleak and lonely place set below the impressive ice walls (and avalanches) of the MahalangurHimal along the Tibetan border. From west to east, the main peaks are Pumori, Lingtren, Khumbutse, and Nuptse. Everest and the Cwm are hidden behind buttresses. Trek back to Gorakshep for the night at Lodge.

  • Accommodation: Lodge | Teahouse

A very early morning climb of 2-3 hours up Kala Patthar, behind the village, offers a sunrise awakening of the Himalayan chain. First Everest (8,848m/29,028ft), then its surrounding vassals: Pumori (7,145m/23,443ft), Lingtren (6,697m/21, 973ft), Khumbutse (6,623m/21,730ft), Changtse (7,550m/24,772ft), Lhotse (8,516m/27,941ft) and Nuptse (7,861m/25,792ft). Plus Cho Oyo (8,201m/26,907ft) in the west and AmaDablam to the south: Amidst countless other peaks that crowd the horizon in all directions. Drop back to Gorakshep for breakfast, and then retrace your steps down to Lobuche. Return to the snout of the Khumbu glacier, dropping down the moraine and continuing on to the village of Pheriche for a lower and warmer night.
