Day 3: Flight to Lukla and trekking to Phakding (8,714′)

The flight to Lukla, with a hair raising landing on a steep mountain runway, brings us to the village of Lukla [2900m]. After meeting the crew, we start our trek.We head up the Dudh Kosi Valley. Overnight at Tea house/Lodge

 

Day 4: Trek to Namche (11,319′)

From Phakding, we cross and re-cross the river on high suspension bridges. Beyond Monjo is the entrance to the Sagarmatha National Park. The park was set-up to conserve this fragile mountain environment. We then ascend steeply to Namche and along the way, if the weather permits, catch the first glimpse of Mt Everest . Namche is the main trading village in the Khumbu and has a busy Saturday market – a meeting place for the Hindu traders from the lowlands and the Tibetan yak caravans that have crossed the glaciated Nangpa La.

Day 5: Trek to Khumjung (12,421′)

Ascending from Namche Bazaar, we pass the airstrip at Syangboche and the Japanese-built Everest View Hotel. From the hotel, there are magnificent views of the valley and Everest. We walk to the picturesque village of Khumjung with many old traditional houses and a gompa at the top end of town. At the nearby village of Khunde, is the famous hospital built by Sir Edmund Hillary, an important center of health care in the region.

Heading east, we pass a large chorten and then descend to a bridge across the Dudh Kosi at Phunki Tenga. From the river, the trail ascends through a forest of pine and rhododendron, before arriving at Thyangboche Monastery. The views here are truly awesome, from the beautiful Ama Dablam to Lhotse and Everest at the head of the valley. The gompa has been rebuilt since a tragic fire in 1989 and is well worth a visit.
