    We start our amazing trek with a 35 minute scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. From here we follow a gentle climb up the mountainside on the left bank of the Dudh Koshi river. Nupla (5,885m) can be seen in the distance on the opposite bank, is a peak atop the Kongde Ridge. We descend a mountainside path that merges into our route to Everest, with views to a valley to our right and at its far end, Kusum Kangaru (6,367m.).

    The trail starts through a level path along the right bank. We cross a stream and climb the terraced hill from the Dudh Koshi route, to arrive at Bengar. The trail now climbs from the river bed on the left bank into the mountain, through a forest to Chumoa. We continue along a path with many ups and downs; cross a stream, and pass by the tiny village of Monjo. Now, we descend the path of stone steps and return to the right bank over a wooden bridge. After our departure from Jorsale we enter a forested mountainside. We move on following a short walk along the riverbed of this V-shaped valley where the river forks - the right is the Dudh Koshi and the left is the Bhote Kosi that leads to Nampa La. After short distance along the Bhote Koshi, we begin the steep ascent to Namche Bazaar. As the mountain path zigzags uphill, we will emerge at a ridge top rest area that offers excellent views of Everest (8,848m) and Lhotse (8,516m.) The climb eases somewhat and Namche Bazaar appears ahead as we travel along the path surrounded by pines. Namche Bazaar (3,440m) is surrounded on three sides by mountain ranges and opens out only where it faces the Bhote Koshi. Stay overnight at lodge.

    Namche is tucked away between two ridges amidst the giant peaks of the Khumbu. It is an ideal place to spend a rest day for acclimatization at the high altitude before heading off towards Tengboche. For the acclimatization we walk up to Khunde Hospital which was set-up by Sir Edmund Hillary, and an hour walk up to the Sangboche (3800m) where Everest View Hotel is situated above Namche for the outstanding view of Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku and Kusum Kangaru. There are also good views from the National Park Centre and Museum just above the town. This museum exhibits Sherpa culture. Stay overnight at lodge.

After a gentle descent the mountain path ends; we will come to the fork leading to Gokyo. It is a long climb to Tengboche; the first half is especially steep. As we climb through the forested zone, the incline eases and a splendid view appear. We continue climbing the mountainside diagonally until we come to the stone gate built by lamas which marks your entry into Tengboche (3,860m). We may use the large plateau in front of the splendid monastery as your campsite. There are a lodge and hotel managed by the National Park Service.
