This is the first opportunity to catch a glimpse of the peak of awesome Mt. Everest, the highest mountain in the world and other Himalayas such as Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, Kongde and so on.

    Day 5: Trek to Tengboche (3860m)

    After breakfast in Namche the trail slightly goes uphill to Namche and leads you to Tengboche via Sanasa and directly descends to Dudh Koshi River (3250m). The route from Namche to Tengboche is unbelievably beautiful – the Dudh Kosi is far below and Thamserku, Kantega, Ama Dablam, Lhotse, and Everest rise in front. Woods, rhododendron forests, mani walls, chorten (stupas), and suspension bridges across the river make this a lovely walk. Tengboche monastery is the biggest monastery of the Everest region. It is located within the Sagarmatha National Park which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Tengboche Monastery opens at 4:00pm, so if we reach there by 4 o’clock we can observe a Buddhist religious ceremony.

We continue our walk to the Imja Valley and Lobuche River before ascending to Dingboche. It is a picturesque village with beautiful barley, potato and buckwheat fields complete with grazing animals dotted along those fields. On the way to Dinboche, we pass river which flow from the Everest Base Camp and from there we reach in about an hour to our destination.

    Spending a day in Dingboche helps us to acclimate to the high altitude. Instead of staying idle, we climb a ridge located behind the village and see six of the world’s tallest peaks including Lhotse, Makalu and Cho Oyu. Furthermore, we can also admire Cholatse and Taboche peaks. On our north-west we see more Himalayan peaks rising above the Khumbu Khola Valley. Among those peaks, Lobuche West, Lobuche East and Lhotse are the most dominant. From another location on the ridge we can also admire the picturesque Imja Khola Valley and the beautiful Dingboche village.

    Day 8: Trek to Lobuche (4910m)

    The ascent towards Everest Base Camp continues through Alpine meadows and summer yak pastures towards the end of the moraine of the Khumbu Glacier. At the moraine, there are stone monuments to six Sherpa who died in avalanche, as well as monuments to other climbers. From here, it is a steep, tough climb towards Lobuche. On the way to Lobuche, we can see different mountains depending on the weather and the sunset is truly magnificent.

We can see the world’s tallest Mt Everest along other mighty Himalayan peaks.

After reaching to Groak Shep we have our breakfast and then ascend to Pheriche.
