5Rest / Acclimatize in Namche
Trek from Namche is a bit challenging due to excessive gain in altitude. Therefore, to become accustomed to the temperature at a higher altitude, we’ll have a rest at Namche Bazaar. To make the most of the day, we’ll take a walk through the village, before climbing up the hill to Syangboche. The trail here is rugged and continuously upward, so the trek can take anywhere from one to two hours to reach the viewpoint. Once you’ve arrived in the town, enjoy the magnificent view along with a warm breakfast at the Hotel Everest View.Meals B,L,DHighlights Rest / Acclimatize in NamcheAccommodation HOTEL
6Trek to Tengboche
The journey from Namche to Tengboche is relatively easy and fun, but the start is not so much. We begin the trek with a steep climb off the hill for almost 20 minutes before the path gets easier. After two hours of hiking, the trail descends to the river losing all the elevation gained. Once you’ve crossed the river, the trail leads the steep slope passing several teahouses and forests. The final race to Tengboche is quite challenging due to lower oxygen at high altitudes. After a slow and steady walk of more than two hours, we’ll arrive at the beautiful village of Tengboche.Meals B,L,DHighlights Trek to TengbocheAccommodation LODGE
7Tengboche to Dingboche
Early in the morning, we’ll visit Tengboche Monastery to offer prayers and receive a blessing. After a round trip of the pilgrimage, we’ll leave the village, taking a gentle walk downhill and crossing the river. The trail on the other side is steep and continuously upward, so the trek becomes a bit strenuous. We’ll be walking along the Lobuche riverbank before entering the Imja Valley where the paths are rough. There are fewer trekkers and porters from here, but you may see some lovely teahouses to stop in on the way. After an uphill trek of three hours, we’ll finally come to Dingboche. Unlike other stops, you’ll find fewer teahouses and more tent camps in the village for accommodation. Apart from the shelter, Dingboche will provide us with a jaw-dropping view of snow-capped mountains and the Imja River, flowing from the east of the village.Meals B,L,DHighlights Tengboche to DingbocheAccommodation LODGE
8Day trip to Chhukhung Valley and back to Dingboche
Provided the long tiring journey to Dingboche, we’ll let you take a well-deserved break at the village. Instead of continuing along the path, we’ll stroll through the village and use our spare time to visit Chhukhung Valley. It’s one of the major attractions for trekkers in Khumbu given the magnificent view of beautiful landscapes and snow peaks. To visit it, we’ll have to head towards the southern slope of Lhotse and Nuptse besides the Lho Glacier.

10Trek to Everest Base Camp then back to Gorak Shep
From Lobuche, we head towards Gorakshep navigating an off-the-beaten path full of rocks and boulders. The paths are unclear traveling up, which adds to the difficulty level. After 3 miles of long and tiring walk, we’ll finally arrive at Gorakshep. Before going further, we’ll make a quick visit to one of the local teahouses for lunch. After a while, we’ll wind up at the rocky trail that leads us to Everest Base Camp. The final three hours walk to base camp is extremely challenging, with steep and unpaved trails. You’ll have to walk along the glacial moraine and over the rocks and debris, which is quite strenuous. After trekking much of the day, we’ll finally arrive at the base camp, facing Mt Everest. From the end of the Khumbu Glacier, you can see gigantic rocky mountains and ice cliffs surrounding the base camp. After spending some time at the camp, we’ll turn back to Gorakshep, which takes another 1 to 2 hours. We’ll stay the night in a teahouse.Meals B,L,DHighlights Trek to Everest Base Camp then back to Gorak ShepAccommodation TEA HOUSE

12Dzongla to Thangna
The day starts with an easy walk on a flat rock and across an arid valley. From there, we’ll ascent steep slopes heading towards Cho La Pass. The route is physically challenging even for pro hikers let alone beginners. It requires the trekker to use crampons to ascend slippery glacier and loose rocks with ice. From there, we’ll descend the trail to Thangna, passing the remote village of Phedi. The trek is 6 hours long and expects you to traverse mixed terrains with steep inclines. Along the path, it offers us a mesmerizing view of shimmering snow peaks and rugged hills. At Thangna, we’ll see a lot of small and familial-run teahouses built to provide accommodation to hikers. The village also has a wonderful view to offer its visitors, including the rare glimpses of Machhermo Peak.Meals B,L,DHighlights Dzongla to ThangnaAccommodation TEA HOUSE
13Thangna to Gokyo
On this day, we’ll travel from Thangna to Gokyo, taking more than 7 hours. The initial trip begins through glacial terrains made of ice and boulders.

It’s nestled right underneath the Gokyo Ri at an elevation of 4,750 meters. The village has been commercialized with lodges and guesthouses aimed to facilitate visitors.Meals B,L,DHighlights Thangna to GokyoAccommodation HOTEL
14Climb Gokyo Ri and trek to Machhermo
At 5,357 meters, Gokyo Ri is one of the most trekkable mountains with a moderate hiking trail. Located on the west of Ngozumpa Glacier, this side trek is more popular among hikers than the Gokyo Valley. They use it as an alternative trekking route and a practice ground to climb mountains. The ascent to Gokyo Ri isn’t easy, with a continuous uphill walk just from the south of Taujun Lake. It features high cliffs and mountain ridges, which are incredibly difficult to climb. But, once reach the acme, you’ll enjoy the magnificent scenery along with surrounding snow peaks. Following the exploration, we’ll plummet the trail and continue the expedition from the base of Ngozumpa Glacier. After an hour of trek, we’ll cross the wild grazing field and trek along the Dudh Koshi River. On the way to the village, you’ll see the dramatic landscapes and yak pastures. After hiking more than 8 km, we’ll arrive at Machhermo. The village lies in the Dudh Koshi River Valley below the terminal moraine of Ngozumpa Glacier.
