Kusum Kangaru, Thamserku, Konde-Ri and Tawache peak. Stay overnight at lodge.

Rest at Namche Bazaar for acclimatization and excursion around the places. It is an ideal place to spend a rest day for acclimatization to the high altitude before heading off towards Tyangboche. For the acclimatization you walk up to Khunde Hospital which was set up by late Sir Edmund Hillary, or a one hour walk up to the Syangboche (3800m.) where Everest View Hotel is situated above Namche for the outstanding view of Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku and Kusum Kangaru. There are also good views from the National Park Centre and Museum just above the town. Stay overnight at lodge.

Trek from Namche Bazaar to Tyangboche (3867 m.) takes almost five hours. From Namche, the trail contours around the side of the valley, high above the Dudh Koshi. From here you can catch a glimpse of good views of the great peaks of the Khumbu including Mt Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku and Kusum Kangaru. Passing by several villages and numerous tea shops, the trail descends steeply to a bridge over the river Dudh Koshi at Phunki Tenga (3250m.).The village has an excellent place for lunch and you can take a short rest before making the steep climb to Tyangboche. Tyangboche is famous for its legendary monastery, the largest in the Khumbu region. Stay overnight at lodge.

Trek from Tyangboche to Dingboche (4260m.) takes about five hours. You gradually descend through a forest, cross the Imja Khola and climb steadily up to the village of Pangboche. This is directly opposite to Ama Dablam [6,856 m], and has exceptional views of the mountain, with the Gompa, mani walls and scattered pine trees in the foreground. As you gradually ascend, you find thick forests. This part of the trail is full of thorny and juniper bushes. A further two and a half hour’s walk brings you to Dingboche. Stay overnight at lodge.

Here, you can steeply climb up to Nakartsang Gompa for the rare outstanding view of Mount Makalu (8463m.) along with Lhotse, Island Peak, Baruntse, Ama Dablam and Thamserku.

After two hours walk, the trail from Pheriche joins near Dugla (4595m) before a small wooden bridge over the river of Khumbu glacier.

After a short break, continue trekking up to Lobuche, hidden and sheltered from the wind. Stay overnight at lodge.

Trek from Lobuche to Kala Patthar via Gorakshep (m.) Trek up the valley following the rocky moraine path, view icy glacial pond and icebergs down below of Khumbu glacier. After the last rocky moraine dunes, a short downhill walk brings you to Gorakshep, the flat field below Kala Patthar (5545m) and Mt. Pumori (7145m.) Gorakshep is the location of the original Everest Base Camp with the new camp being further up the valley. The walk is gradual until you reach a rocky spot; from there another uphill climb for half an hour brings you to Kala Patthar. From Kala Patthar top, Everest seems just at a stones throw distance. The panoramic view from this spot is something to cherish and you feel ecstatic being at the top of the world. With all the higher snow capped giants that dominate all around, it is truly a magnificent spot to be at on a clear sunny day. Stay overnight at lodge.

Trek from Kalapatter to Everst Base camp & back to Everest Base Camp. While trekking to Everest Base Camp you pass through a trail, which weaves its way through ice pinnacles and past the crevasses of the Khumbu Glacier.
