One the way, we might encounter Dzho, Donkeys, and Yaks and we will pass all the rhododendron forest and few mini villages. Since Phakding is a small village and rustic settlement is located in the Bank of Dudh Koshi river, we need to descend down from Lukla.
Overnight in Phakding.
Normally, We take breakfast around 7:30 am to 8 am. Then, like the previous day, we will keep continuing trekking on the bank of the Dudh Koshi river and cross the numerous thrilling suspension bridges, green and blue pine trees, rhododendron bushes, and juniper tree forest. Numerous Chortens, prayer flags, and small stupas which correspond to Buddhism make our trekking more spiritual and peaceful.

We will get the NP permit from the check post and stay in Jhorsalle for lunch. From here, 45min easy hike until the longest suspension bridge “ Hilary Bridge”. It's a junction of the Dudh Koshi and Bhotekoshi, from here it’s tough uphill until Namche. But, at the end of the day, you will be rewarded with the beautiful sherpa capital, many skies dominating mountains, and the first sight of Everest in its majesty. Overnight stay in the Everest region’s most classy and fancy town.
As we are heading towards higher altitude, our body needs to adapt to the Himalayan atmosphere and climate. So, we let our bodies acclimatize with the mountain environment. Thankfully, Namche has many things to explore since it's the capital of the Everest region and home of the sherpas. On this day, we will hike to Everest View Point, and later we will explore the Everest View Hotel. This hotel is regarded as the highest star hotel in the world, which lies in a 3880m altitude. The moment will be so precious when we will take our coffee/tea and Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, and numerous mountains will be in front of us to cheer us.

Later, when we return back to the main town, we can explore the good restaurants, coffee shops for the more varieties of food. Overnight stay at Namche Bazaar.
Today's route is regarded as the most scenic day for the entire trek. This day will be the combination of the amazing sight of sky-touching mountains, small villages, stupas, monasteries, rhododendron flowers, pine forest and sometimes we might encounter rare animals. Our trek will continue along the glacial water of Dudhkoshi including the majestic view of Everest, Lhotse, and Ama Dablam from most of the parts. The beginning of the trek will be quite easy and the trail is straight and wider for 1 and a half hours. Then, we need to descend to the level of Imja Khola and we will sit for lunch near the river lodges. Before reaching Tengboche village, there will be another big uphill trail to hike. Our today's destination lies in between the two rivers which are spiritually famous as well. Tengboche monastery is one of the most famous, biggest, and ancient monasteries in the Khumbu region. Don’t forget to visit inside the monastery to get the blessing from the monks and if we are lucky enough, we might meet the Lama Rinpoche, the biggest monk in Buddhism. We will stay in a comfortable guesthouse.
Early morning view of Ama Dablam, Lhotse, and the tip of the Everest on Nuptse range gives a warm morning vibe to us. Tasty breakfast at Tengboche refuel our body then we will descend slightly until a small village called Debuche, which is covered with pine and rhododendron forest. The trail continues along the moraine of Khumbu glacier and passes by stone memorials for the sherpas and climbers deceased on different mountain expeditions. We will cross another suspension bridge over Imja Khola before reaching Pangboche village, another biggest Sherpa settlement in the Khumbu region. The more we climb, mani walls, prayer flags, stone walls, chortens, and small stupas are so visible and found abundantly.
After Pangboche, the landscapes become drier, mountains look closer and we start to feel a more mountainous atmosphere from this point. Our uphill climb continues until we reach a beautiful and small quaint Sherpa village. We will find some fancy bakeries and cafes, and we will explore the village. Easy sleep and rest at Dingboche.
Since the village is located at 4400m altitude, we need proper rest and take care, so that we can easily adopt the more altitude. This is also a memorable place, where Tenzing Norge and Sir Edmund Hillary step their first feet during their Everest summit mission.
Today, we will hike to the Nangkartshang peak (5,083m), which is about 3hr hiking distance from Dingboche. Ama Dablam, Island peak, Chukung village, Imja valley including Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, and an aerial view of Dingboche can be easily seen from here. When we arrive in Dingboche from a short hike, we can explore villages for the coffee and this place is famous for french bakeries as well. During dinner time, we can sing songs and play cards as well. Overnight stay at comfortable accommodation.
From this day, the trekking grade becomes moderate to difficult because of higher altitude. The level of oxygen in the air becomes lower and we might feel more tired. We will pass through the windy pastureland of Yaks with gradual uphill and Sloopy landscapes that lie on the soldiers of Pheriche. The terrain will become totally different than in previous days. On the way, Tawache, Cholatse, Lobuche peak along with Ama Dablam view can be explored closely. Lunch camp will be on the bank of Khumbu glacier and after than 1hr direct hiking will take us to the sherpa memorial called Thukla pass 4800m. Here we will find the stone made memorial dedicated to all the Sherpas and climbers who lost their lives in different expeditions of nearby mountains. The remaining trail will be almost straight until Lobuche but the mountain terrain will be rocky, sometimes melted snow also available. A small beautiful village on the side of the epic Khumbu glacier and base of Lobuche peak welcome us for today's accommodation. If we are lucky enough, we can be the witness of the sunset over Nuptse and Pumori. Prepare for the coldest night and some might feel the problems in breathing because of altitude. Overnight stay in the guesthouse.
This is a big day for all the trekking enthusiasm who dreamed to trek to the base of the world’s highest mountain. The initial trek will be comparatively easy, as we don’t need to climb much uphill until Gorakshep. The trail will be rocky and craggy and walking along the Khumbu glacier until Base Camp. Almost, a 3hour hike takes us to the stunning small village above 5,000m and we will take rest for a few times including lunch before resuming our hike to base camp.
It will take another 3-hour trek in a rocky moraine trail formed by glacial remains. The breathtaking view of Khumbu icefall, the tip of Everest, and glacier-covered with sky-touching mountains gives the extra charm to the base camp. If we are trekking during spring, we can meet 100s of climbers who are attempting to climb Everest and Lhotse. We came back to Gorakshep for the accommodation. Since we are at a higher altitude, proper diet, drink and rest are very important.
This will be another beautiful day and the most important day to watch the panoramic view of breathtaking mountains. We will wake up at 3-4 am in the morning and a 3hour trail uphill climb takes us to the summit of the Kalapatthar. Kalapatther means the mountain made by black rocks and this is the highest altitude (5,545m) we will climb in our entire trek. Kalapatthar is one of the most famous viewpoints for both sunset and sunrise over the world's highest point. Sunset is rare because the weather conditions during the evening in the mountains always remain foggy and covered with clouds snowfall.
Then, we will come back to Gorak Shep, take your breakfast and trek to Pheriche/Pangboche. The trail for today is just descending down and losing the altitude makes you more comfortable and less tired as well. Pheriche is the normal destination but if the group can still walk around 2 hours more then we would extend up to Pangboche village.
Leaving the mountain behind us and taking a lot of memories, struggles, tears, happiness, and satisfaction in our heart and descending down to Pangboche, Tengboche monastery. Hiking down is significantly easier and sharing our experience and wish for the new trekkers that we will encounter on the way. We will celebrate today’s night with other trekkers as we will stay again in Namche. We still can explore Namche and interact with the locals about their lifestyle and Nepalese culture.
We will enjoy the final sight of the mountains from Namche. When we will descend towards Lukla, we will get the longest suspension bridge and the blow of morning winds makes beautiful moves of prayer flags on the bridge. After that, we will pass through several beautiful villages, which shows the mountain lifestyle, gives the reflection of Tibetian Buddhism, and the sound of the Dudh Koshi river thanks us with a warm goodbye. We will arrive in Lukla at around late afternoon. We can do a shower and make ourselves fresh and enjoy the last day in the mountains. Overnight stay at Lukla with warm and comfortable accommodation.
Our trek comes to an end today. As we take our early breakfast in Lukla and we will depart to the most extreme airport which lies nearby to our hotel. According to our flight schedule, we will get ready and leave the hotel. Enjoy the last glimpse of mountains and big hills from your window makes your final day in the mountains more cheerful.
