Around afternoon we will head star our trek by descend through Dudh Kosi River and we will join the main trail to Namche Bazaar, located just above Chaunrikharka (2713m) at Thalsharoa (2680m). As it the starting point of the trekking so, trail is easy. Then we will pass through the many small village like, chheplung, Thadokoshi goon, Nurning ,chhuthaea, Dukdingma(2492m), then to the Phakding. wher we will have the night stay.

At Jorsale, you will enter Sagarmatha National park (UNESCO World Heritage Site) where you’ll be required to verify your permits. After 5-6 hours of tough hiking, we’ll reach Naamche Bazaar where we have the night stay.

After spending the night at the 480 household population we will got out to explore the capital fo the khumbu region. While exploring the namche bazaar we will get know that namche has the dense population of the Sherpa community. We will be fascinated by the cultural and the tradition of the wonderful Sherpa community. The whole day we will be exploring and preparing for the next day tougher trek.

After the two night and day staying at the Namche we gather and refresh the energy and head start our trek to Tangboche. From Namche we ascend through Kyangjuma. From kyangjuma we descend to Phunki Tenga then again ascend through steeply trail to Tangboche. Here we get to enjoy excellent views of Thamserku and AmaDablam (6856m) from the top.

Early morning, after breakfast we will move on to Dingboche (4410m). The air starts to become thin significantly from here. It’s approximately a 4 hour long trek to Dingboche. We head towards our ultimate goal, the Everest base camp. We cross the Imja valley and few Sherpa villages. We will spend the night here in Dingboche, and hike next day to Chhukung.

After nourishing breakfast, we will continue our ascent, few hours walk to Chhukung (4760m), through stone walled fields and alpine landscape. The views are stupendous as we trek to head of Imja valley. While walking through the valley, Lhotse towers on our left and Ama Dablam on our right. We will spend the night here. Here, at Chhukung, we will rest or go for exploration. The point is to adapt to high climate to avoid Altitude Mountain Sickness (AMS). We might take an opportunity to hike to the rocky knoll of Chhukung Ri at 5546m, which offers stunning views of Lhotse, Island Peak, Ama Dablam, Makalu and several others including Baruntse. We will have the Overnight stay in Chhukung at Lodge

A scheduled second rest day for better acclimatization in Chhukung is strongly recommended before setting off for the pass. However, we are not supposed to stay inactive. The view from Chhukung and further up the valley on the moraines towards Island Peak (6189 m) are tremendous. We grasp this opportunity to climb to the Island Peak base camp (4970 m) along the Lhotse glacier, passing the bloated water of Imja Lake. The great south face of Lhotse towers above to the north, while Amphu Lapcha a (5845 m pass) and the immense fluted ice walls that flank it dominate the horizon to the south. To the southwest, the eastern face, of Ama Dablam provides an unusual view of this picturesque peak.

Here, on our way, we can see largest memorials in the Everest region, for the fallen heroes. The final descent is the most difficult stage of the trek today, upon climbing the moraine on the far side, the trail turns north through Khumbu Glacier which takes us to Lobuche. By the time we reach Lobuche, it will be late afternoon. We can either relax for tomorrow’s hike or explore the beautiful land. Here we will have the night stay.

This challenging trek will take around 6-8 hours. From here altitude morning sickness may get severe so we have to be extra careful. The trekking distance will be around 15kms. After wholesome breakfast, we will head to Base camp, trekking through the rocky terrain alongside the Khumbu Glacier. Upon reaching their, you will have some time to enjoy the heavenly environment and take photographs. If you are trekking somewhere between March and May, you might get the chance to see all the commercial expeditions trying to reach the summit.

After the breakfast, we begin our trek to Kala Patthar, early in the morning in order to catch remarkable views of the first light of the sun shining on Mt. Everest. This is the highlight of the whole trip. Optimistically, the day starts with a cloudless sky. But we need to be prepared for trekking in the dark and cold temperature. The trek will be difficult as there is constantly a chance for cold winds which are quite common.After several hours of walking, we will be on the pinnacle of Kala Patthar.The summit of Kala Patter or “Black Rock” gives us the superb large views of Mt. Everest (8848m/29000ft) together with the whole spread of Khumbu Himalayas- really an awesome view of the very best mountain in the world. The lake stays with us over a long stretch until we descend to a wide basin. The trail climbs up a spur and descends steeply to another broad basin. After an hour walk transverse from the basin and shortly after crossing a wobbly bridge, we reach Dzonglha. Today we will have the Overnight in Dzonglha at Lodge

After breakfast, we begin our trekking towards Cho La Pass. The Cho Lo Pass is a gateway trek for the Gokyo valley and Everest Base Camp. After climbing the high and rough mountain, crossing the sacred,which lead us to summit of Cho La Pass. It is a charming, beautiful and simple despite the fact that the terrible climate and poor conditions can make this a difficult trek a few times. After we head towards Thagnak a small Sherpa village then the trail takes us to Gokyo. On the edge of this lake stands the Gokyo Village where we finally give rest to our tired body and have to spend the Overnight in Gokyo

Climb tough at the edge of Dudhkoshi river bank is GokyoRi. One of the routes leading to Everest Base camp, numerous trekkers picked Gokyo trail to explore region of Himalayas. It is dominatingly Buddhist region and one of the most amazing settlements in the world. You will witness mountain peaks; Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu and Kanchenjunga, from the valley. Those with more time and energy can make a trip up the valley to another lake, marked with the name Ngazumpa on the maps, or even beyond to a fifth lake. There are several small peaks in this in this region that offer vantage points for the surrounding peaks and views of the Nangpa La, the old trade route into Tibet. That day we will have the another day Overnight in Gokyo . the same way of making the thing we could be really for the first time way of the really reserve for the same time we could be really blessed

We start our treking early down from the Gokyo Valley, We leave the main trail and turn to Renjo La trail by Dudh Pokhari. After about 3 hours, we gain the Renjo La where a dazzling vista awaits. The Everest itself, Lhotse, Cholatse and Taboche can be seen shining in the sun. Views from Renjo La are much like that from Gokyo Ri with third Gokyo Lake and Gokyo Village beneath the gray smear of Ngozumpa Glacier. Continuing on from the pass, the trail winds down a stone staircases and then scramble over loose scree to reach the south bank of a small lake, Angladumba Tsho. Presence of ice on the trail while descending down can make our descend a bit hazardous. Along the way we see Relama Tsho and Renjo Lake. However, we walk down through narrow valley clogged with giant boulders to Lumde where there is a support Lodge but it can be closed often. We walk almost for an hour from Lumden (4350m) to get to Marlung on the east bank of the Bhote Kosi.
Overnight in Marlung at Lodge

We reach small village of Phurte where there is Laudo monastery which is run by Kopan monastery of Bouddhanath in Kathmandu and is popular among the westerners for Buddhist study and meditation center.
