Then we ascend to Namche Bazaar crossing the Hillary Suspension Bridge. Overnight stay in a lodge.
Day 4 :Acclimatization DayThis is the day to rest in the centre of Khumbu region, the Namche Bazaar. It’s also a day to adjust our body to the high altitude. Though we stay in Namche, it is recommended that we stay active and moving. The place is well facilitated with banks, ATMs and Cyber Cafés and you can also visit the Sherpa museum or visit the local community.
Day 5 :NamcheBazaar- Tyangbuche(3800m)We start for Tyangbuche after breakfast in Namche. On our way, beautiful views of Mt. Everest, Mt. Nuptse, Mt Ama Dablam and Thamserku accompany us while walking the smooth and sometimes zigzag trail.

Our day begins along the trail through Imja Khola then to Tengboche where we descend to river bank, through the rhodedondron and birch forests. At Deboche we visit a Buddhist nunnery and cross few chortens to reach Pangboche where we can have a splendid view the wonderful mountains. One can easily notice the thinning vegetation on walking from upper Panboche to the dry and alpine terrain of Shomare. The apical ridge of Mt. Pumori can be viewed from Orsho then finally we reach the cold and windy village of Dingboche where we stay overnight.
Day 7 :Dingbuche- ChukungOn the seventh day we wake up to find ourselves amid stone walled alpine landscape of Dingboche. We continue our trek through Imja Khola valley to glacier moraines in the middle of towering mountains. Our walk continues for next 3-4 hours through the valley viewing Lhotse Mountain and Ama Dablam on our sides until we reach yak Bibre, the herdman’s place. Walking further we can have wonderful view of rocky and icy appearance of Imja Tse peak at the terminal moraine. Half an hour walk from Bibre leads us to Chhukung where we can view the glaciers, and snowy mountains. Overnight in Chhukung.
Day 8 :Acclimatization DayOn this day we chose to take rest at the height of 4750m/15,580ft of Chhukung to suit our body at this height. We could choose to hike to the rocky Chhukung Ri or climb the base camp of Island peak and enjoy the stunning view of Lhotse, Island Peak, Ama Dablam, Makalu and several others including Baruntse. If we do not choose to hike we make sure that we keep ourselves active and not stay idle and sit leisurely.
Day 9 :Chhukung-Kongmala pass-Lobuche(4900m)Getting acclimatized to this height we start to ascend early in the morning. On this day we enter the remote hinterlands of the mountains where we cannot find any teashops further so we carry plenty of water for ourselves. We have option of either taking a climb over the hill northwest of Chhukung over Nuptse glacier; the other option is to walk down the valley of Bibre then to high trail above Niyang Khola. On walking further we can have stunning view of Island peak valley and the jagged ridge of Amphu Lapcha. On ascending along east side of Niyang Khola valley through stony trail we reach wide basin dotted with frozen lakes. We leave Chhukung after 5 hours walk through the trail Kongma La. We reach the top to see the prayer flags fluttering to mark the pass at ridge. Now the descent begins which is difficult and challenging experience of today’s trek. We then climb the moraine on the far side, then turn north through the trail of Khumbu glacier which finally leads to today’s final destination: Lobuche where we stay overnight.
Day 10 :Lobuche-Gorekhshep(5100m) Ahead of Gorakshep the trail leads through the lateral moraine of Khumbu Glacier. Passing through the pyramid sign post we find ourselves we can view the north ridge of Everest along with Mt. Pumori, Mt. Mahalangur, Mt. Lingtern, Mt. Khumbutse, Mt. Nuptse etc. We can view the 360 degree vista of snow covered mountains after ascent to Thangma Riju. On climbing the top of Changri glacier we catch the sight of Kalapatthar, a green knoll beneath Mt. Pumori. When we reach Gorakshep we can view the snow capped mountains al around including the crown of the world, the Everest. We then take trail to Everest base camp through once Gorak Shep Lake and reach Indian army mountaineers’ memorials on continuing. Upon reaching the Everest Base Camp we realize the hazardous route of Khumbu icefall. We can’t view the Everest as we stand at the base of peak but the close up scene of Nuptse, Khumbutse are no less enchanting experience which stand tall above the bright colored tents of the mountaineers. This is the ultimate point of our trip. We then walk back to Gorak Shep where we lodge overnight.
Day 11 :Gorekhshep-Kalapathar(5550m)-Zongla(3810m)This is the climax of our trip which starts with the walk to catch dramatic view of shining Everest from Kalapatthar.As we descent to Kalapatthar we can catch breath while snapping the pictures of peaks such as Lingtren, Khumbuttse, Changtse appear to the East, the Everest revealing between the west shoulder crest and Nuptse. After several hours we reach Kalapathhar where we sit to quench the ultimate thirst of eyes to see the unparalleled Himalayan panorama. We leave our footsteps take away the memories and snapped pictures for the lifetime experience.
Day 12 :Zongla-Chola pass-ThagnakOn 12th morning we will wake up to see the mesmerizing view of Cholatse. The early part of this one of the toughest trip begins as we transverse through Dzongla across spur forest which then descends to a basin. As we climb the height again we see the picturesque view of Chola lake and Mt Ama Dablam. The steep climb is made worse by boulders which then leads us to the curvy trails of Bergschrund. At the top, we can enjoy the sight of majestic peaks all around standing by the side of fluttering prayer flags. The descent to Thagnak is relatively easier unless the rocks are glazed by iced making the path slippery and hazardous. We stay in Thagnak for the night.
Day 13 :Thagnak-Gokyo(4700m)Early morning the next day we step out of the small village and keep following the trail through Ngozumpa glacier, the longest glacier in Nepal. As we reach the other side of the glacier, we can catch the sight of second Gokyo lakes, which is one of the six series. On the edge of the third lake which is at short distance from the second; we see Gokyo village. Stay and rest in Gokyo for 1 day and 2 nights.
Day 14 :Rest dayTowards the end of second week of our trek we stay to rest in Gokyo valley. The acclimatization day is an excellent opportunity to climb Gokyo Ri which is one of the best place to catch view of Everest region, the six lakes. The fourth lake is 3 Km north to Gokyo with its high cliffs and peaks rising above it. The trail continues to the fifth turquoise blue shimmering lake which is the biggest. We can even climb the hills at the edge of lake to catch the breathtaking scene of Cho-Oyu, Gyachung, Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and Makalu. Beyond fifth lake there is Cho Oyu base camp, the breathtaking scenery is worth a watch. It is up to interest, curiosity, time and energy we have left with whether we go as far as sixth lake. We come back to Gokyo.
Day 15 :Gokyo-Renjola pass- MarlungToday we start to walk to Renjola pass early in the morning. We leave the main trail of Gokyo valley to take Renjola trail by Dudh Pokhari.

On further walking we see Relama Tsho and Renjo Lake then we walk through these narrow valley teemed with giant boulders to Lumde. After an hour walk we reach Marlung, the place where we stay tonight.
Day 16 :Marlung-Thame-Namche Bazaar(441m)The next day we follow the traditional route that had been followed for centuries by the tibetean traders which is a descent from Marlung to Thame. Crossing Bhote Koshi, descending to Taranga we reach Langmuche Khola. We can view astonishing view of the mountains such as Thamserku, Katenga, Kusum Kangguru etc from the lodges besides seeing the famous Buddhist shrine (Gompa) at Thame. We cross the bridge reach Samde, the place which offers breathtaking beauty of mountain views. Down the steep path we reach Thamo village where there is a monastery called Khari Goma which is the nunnery. We reach the world’s highest power station built on Austrailian Aid, after which we reach a small village called Phurte where there is Laudo Monastry. Finally we reach to Namche through some gompas, prayer flags, chortens and Mani stones. Overnight in Namche.
