    Early morning you will be picked up by your guide to go to the Kathmandu airport, from where we will take the airplane to Lukla, which will take us about 35 minutes of flight time. At Lukla we will be meet our porters and will head north from the airstrip to Chablung (2,700m). Here we will cross the Tharo Kosi River on a local-style suspension bridge. Just past the bridge we can see the peak of Kusum Kangru (6,367m), which is the most difficult of the so-called “trekking peaks”.

    From Phakding we follow the valley of the Dudh Kosi River, staying on the west bank of the river. We climb steeply over a rocky ridge towards Benkar (2,710m). From here the trail continues alongside the river. All along this part of the trail, villages are interspersed with magnificent forests of rhododendron, magnolia and giant firs. In both the early autumn and late spring, the flowers on this portion of the trek make it a beautiful walk. We cross the Kyashar Khola River and climb out of the valley to Monjo (2,840m). Just beyond Monjo the trek enters the Sagarmatha (Everest) National Park, which was established in 1976 to protect an area of 1,148 sq km surrounding Mt Everest. Beyond the national park entrance station, the trail makes a steep rocky descent and crosses the Dhud Kosi river on a 120m-long suspension bridge towards Jorsale (2,830m). After crossing this river a few times while climbing our way up the valley we will reach Namche Bazaar (3,445m). Namche Bazaar is the main trading centre in this region and features numerous shops, hotels and restaurants. Overnight at guest house.

We start with a steep one-hour climb to the Shyangboche airstrip (3790m), from where we will slowly ascent towards Khunde passing numerous chorten (stone Buddhist monuments). From Khunde we follow the trail eastwards to Khumjung, the largest village in Khumbu, at the foot of the sacred peak Khumbila. After enjoying lunch here we will follow a steep switch backing trail descending to Chhorkung (3540m). From here it is a quick descent back to Namche Bazaar. Overnight at guest house.

The views of Everest and Ama Dablam are excellent from this part of the trek. We pass the small settlement of Sanasa from where the trail drops towards Phunki Thanga (3,250m). From here the trail climbs steeply through forests and around mani stones as it follows the side of a hill to the saddle on which the monastery of Tengboche sits at 3,880m. The view from here is rightly deemed to be one of the world’s most magnificent. Kwangde (6,187m), Tawachee (6,542m), Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse (8,501m), Ama Dablam, Kantega and Thamserku provide an inspiring panorama of Himalayan giants.
