After some 40 minutes of flight we land which is not so smooth as we are used to. After we exit the airport, we have some hot breakfast before starting the much awaited trek to the Everest Base Camp.

Today's trek is a short walk of around 7.5 kms, and takes about 3 - 4 hours with lunch time included. The trail is beautiful with lots of small Buddhist Chortens, Mane walls, prayer flags, terrace farmings of the Himalayas with tall mountains encircling you all round, and off-course - the suspension bridges crossing over the Dudh Kosi river multiple times! On reaching Phakding, we check in to our rooms and ease out for the day.

Day 3: Trek From Phakding - Namche Bazaar

Today we criss cross the Dudh Koshi river several times through suspension bridges and climb up to Namche Bazaar at 3440m. The trail is very exciting and happening as you trek along with trekkers from different nations. We cross the settlements of Benkar, Chumoa, Monjo, to arrive at the entrance of Sagarmatha National Park. Our permits to enter will be made here. This place has a small museum inside worth checking while we get the permits done. We walk for some 30 more minutes more to stop for lunch at Jorsalle. From here, the trail zig-zags up to "The First Everest View Point". If the weather is clear, we can see Everest behind the Lhotse and Nuptse ridge through the leaves and branches of the trees. From here, Namche checkpost is an hour distance where we make our entries again. After getting it done, we head to our Lodge for tonight. Its some 30 minutes walk from here.

On reaching, we check-in to our rooms and ease out for the day. We have reached a very good height today. Namche is a very important place on this route. Its an ancient trade hub which has flourished very well due to tourism. The place is surrounded grand views of Himalayan peaks. Don't miss the sunset behind Thamserku.

Today we start the day to climb up to Everest View Hotel for acclimatization. From here, we can view the beautiful peak of Ama Dablam, Thamserku, The little hump of Kangtega, Everest, Nuptse, a little of Lhotse, Cholatse and Tobuche. This is at 3880m and gives us a very good altitude to acclimatize for the days to come. We head back to Namche for lunch. Post lunch, we may take a local tour of Namche. There is a monastery, few bakeries and shops. 

Day 5: Trek From Namche Bazzar to Tengboche 

After yesterday's acclimatization walk and a much needed break in Namche Bazaar, today we start our trek towards Tengboche. All throughout the trek, we will get superb view of Mt. Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam and close up view of Thamserku if we are not unlucky.

The trek route for the day is comfortable, following a gradual trail with few ups and downs, all surrounded by the magnificence and charm of the great Himalayas of Nepal.

The trek route from Namche Bazaar till Kyangjuma is almost flat and a slight descend. From Sanasa, the trek is simple through the pine forests uptill Phunki Thenga - a small commercial settlement with a few tea-houses and an army post. It is our preferred place to have lunch. Post lunch, we need to trek further, and slightly steeper to Tengboche. It houses the a biggest Buddhist Monastery in the region and is famous for pre-Everest climbing rituals. We visit it in the evening free time. A nice plate of hot Dal/Bhaat/ Tarkari is a pleasant way to end our beautiful day.

With views of Cholatse, Nuptse and Thamserku, Dughla is a nice place to be in and ideal for slowing our pace to the Everest Base Camp as we are trekking above 4500 meters. This will reduce our exertion and maximize our chances of better acclimatization.

A short trek to Thangma Riju will give us a chance to witness the grand vista of the mighty peaks. After enjoying the view, we then climb up steeply along the Changri Glacier. There we get the first sight of Kala Patthar beneath Pumori. We begin well in time post lunch to get the sensational perspectives of the surrounding view from Kala Patthar.

After a strenuous climb for some hours, we reach Kala Patthar. We scramble few rough patches and reach the summit set apart by cairns and prayer flags.
