Then, we will stop for breakfast after which we will begin our first day’s walk to Phakding, a fairly easy 3 hours walk through the Dudhkosi valley. We will head north from the airstrip to Chheplung (2700m). Here we will cross the Thado Koshi River on a local-style suspension bridge. Just past the bridge, we can see the peak Kusum and Kanggru (6367m), which are the most difficult trekking peaks to climb. Beyond the ThadoKoshi, the trail climbs a bit towards Ghat (2590m), then we will cross a ridge marked with painted Mani stones and climb to Phakding where we will stay overnight.

After we cross the last bridge, there is a steep climb up to Namche where the trail gradually leads up to Jorsale. It is a 2 and a half hour climb up to Namche with two view points on the way. We can have a mesmerizing view of Mt Everest on a clear day. At Jorsale, we enter the Sagarmatha National park where we will need to verify our permits. After 5 or 6 hours of hard walking, we reach the main trading centre, Namche bazaar.

Day

Acclimatization day at Namche

Acclimatization is very important before proceeding higher to avoid altitude sickness. We will be taken for a day’s hike through the villages of Khunde and Khumjung and come back to Namche through the Everest view hotel Khumjung. We can see the head of a Yeti in the monastery of the area. We can also visit the bakery at world’s highest altitude. We get to enjoy the panoramic views of Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam and many other mountains on a fair day. Even the view from Everest View hotel is very impressive. We start with a steep one-hour climb to the Syangboche airstrip (3790m), from where we will slowly ascend towards Khunde passing numerous chorten (stone Buddhist monuments). From Khunde, we follow the trail eastwards to Khumjung, the largest village in Khumbu, at the foot of the sacred peak Khumbila. After enjoying lunch at Khumjung, we follow a gradual climb to Everest View Hotel where we will enjoy the splendid mountain views. Then we descend towards Namche (3540m).

Day

06

Trek to Tengboche (3790m).

Our route for today to Tengboche weaves in and out of side valleys, making small ups and downs, to the teashops of Kenjoma, and joins the trail from Khumjung just before a collection of Mani stones. The views of Everest and Ama Dablam are excellent from this part of the trek. We pass the small settlement of Sanasa from where the trail drops towards Phunkithanga (3250m). From here the trail climbs steeply through pine forests and around Mani stones as it follows the side of a hill to the saddle on which the monastery of Tengboche sits at 3870m. The view from here is rightly deemed to be one of the world’s most magnificent sceneries. Kwangde (6187m), Tawachee (6542m), Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse (8501m), Amadablam, Kantega and Thamserku provide an inspiring panorama as the Himalayan giants. We will spend the night in Tengboche village (5 hrs).

Day

08

Day trip to Chhukung valley and back to Dingboche.

We will start around 8:30 after breakfast. The trek up to Chhukung is quite nice and easy. We get a really nice view of most of the mountains specially Ama Dablam. The view from Chhukung and further up the valley on the moraines towards Island Peak is tremendous. To the south-west, the eastern face of Amadablam provides an unusual view of this picturesque peak.

Then we trek along a broad valley floor to Thugla, leaving behind the Trekkers Aid Post at Pheriche at 4240 m.
