We follow the Dudh Kosi, ascending through Himalayan pine and Deodar cedar forests, to the celebrated village of Namche Bazaar. This village is a historical trading post where Nepalese and Tibetan traders exchange salt, dried meat and textiles. The final section of today’s trek is tougher while getting to Namche Bazar.

The flat and easy trail leads towards the view of Mount Everest, then descends into the Dudh Kosi Valley at Pungki Thanka. From here it ascends to Tengboche Monastery (3860m), the spiritual centre of the Khumbu region. This monastery is the largest in the Khumbu Region and enshrines a Yeti skull as well as a statue of Lord Buddha.

Today is a big day. After a short climb through meadows, we look down on the Khumbu Glacier. Straight ahead is Kala Patthar – the best vantage point to view the entire south face of Everest and the surrounding peaks. After a couple of hours, we reach Gorak Shep before continuing our journey to Everest Base camp.
