After a good rest at Phakding, we will move towards Namche Bazaar. Namche Bazaar is at an altitude of 3,440 m. It will take around 6 hours to reach the small yet abundant market of Namche Bazaar.
Namche Bazaar is the main trading hub in the Khumbu region and is also called the gateway to Mount Everest.
Namche Bazaar is a semi-urban area where you can witness the trading business being operated by the villagers of Namche. You can buy essentials in Namche Bazaar. Beyond Namche Bazaar, you won’t find such markets to shop.

You would have climbed a height where people would start to feel altitude sickness. We will halt for a day for acclimatization. We will utilize this day to explore Namche Bazaar.
The beauty of Namche Bazaar is hard to define in just a few words. Even singers and poets are sometimes found praising Namche in their creations. People have been involved in trading businesses in Namche for long.
Namche Bazaar is well known for selling Tibetan artifacts, yak cheese, butter, trekking gears and equipment, and many more. You can find many pubs, restaurants, and cafes at Namche.

Tengboche is known for Tengboche monastery, which is one of the major attractions of Everest Base Camp trek. It is the largest monastery in the Khumbu region. You can explore the monastery and witness the activities of monks. We’ll stay overnight at Tengboche.

Our next destination in Everest Base Camp trek on the seventh day will be Dingboche. From Tengboche, we will probably walk 5 hours to reach Dingboche.
The trekking trail encompasses dense alpine forests and you will notice an amazing view of Tengboche village. You can also see the mountain ranges including Mt. Nuptse and Mt. Cholatse. We will stay overnight at a nice local teahouse.

Once we reach Dingboche, we will have outreached 4360m. That is quite a high altitude for trekkers to suffer from altitude sickness. We will reserve this day to acclimatize with the high elevation. There is Nagarjun hill in the vicinity.
We will hike up the Nagarjun hill and that would take around 5 hours. The view of Dingboche village from the top of the Nagarjun hill is not something you want to miss. You can also spot a small yet charming Imja Tse village and even clearer view of the mountain range.

Walking a steep path upward from Dingboche, we will reach Lobuche at a
height of 4940m. The increasing elevation will make your trek a bit difficult but
once you overcome the struggle, you’ll be treated with a jaw-dropping view of
high peaks and a slight view of Khumbu glacier. After a trek of about 5 hours,
you can take a rest at a local teahouse in Lobuche.

On the ninth day, we’ll move from Lobuche towards Gorakshep. Gorakshep is a small area inhabited by Sherpa people frequently as it is located at an altitude of 5,164m. In about 3 hours, we will reach Gorakshep from Lobuche.
We will take a short break at Gorakshep where we will take lunch as well. After a quick lunch, we will move uphill. Ascending around 1-2 hours, we’ll cross Khumbu glacier. Crossing Khumbu glacier will be enthralling in itself because of its dangerous yet impressive structure.
Finally, we reach the best viewpoint of Mount Everest which is Everest Base Camp. This location gives the best view of the majestic Mount Everest and other series of high peaks. After spending quality time at Everest Base Camp, we will head back to Gorakshep which will take 1-2 hours. We will stay overnight at Gorakshep.

We will wake up early in the morning to head towards Kala Patthar. Kala Patthar is located at a significant height of 5,643m. Kala Patthar is a fantastic viewpoint to have a scenic view of the mountain ranges.
Kala Patthar is also known to offer the astonishing sunrise view from Mount Everest. After experiencing a once in a lifetime moment at Kala Patthar, we will return to Gorakshep.
We are now returning from Gorakshep to Pheriche (4,210m). That would take approximately 7 hours. Descending will not be as difficult as it was while ascending. We’ll spend the night at Pheriche.

From Pheriche, we’ll walk downwards to Namche Bazaar. We’ll cross all those
suspension bridge, forests, and rivers, which we encountered before.

From Namche Bazaar, it’s time to get to Lukla. A good 6-7 hours of the walk
will take you to Lukla. We’ll stay overnight at Lukla where you can celebrate
your accomplishment. You can try some traditional Sherpa cuisines and enjoy
cultural dances here. Try some of their steps and dance with them.

On the last day, we’ll get on a direct flight to Kathmandu. At Kathmandu, you
