Finally, the trail on the banks finish and we start ascending on steep gradient up, crossing the highest suspension bridge of Everest Region. The climb is steep, so we walk with a comfortable pace. Finally we reach Namche, the biggest town in the region.

After breakfast at the hotel, we heard north towards Tengboche, a superb hill for photography and Himalayan view. The monastery at Tengboche is one of the major highlights of Everest Base Camp standard trek. For the first hour the trail is flat and down, up to get Tengboche. The monastery is the oldest and the only one building that can seen from the top of Mount Everest.
After breakfast we trek down to Debuche and continue on to Pangboche, which is a major Sherpa settlement. Walking through the village, we get to see Mt. Ama Dablam towering up from the right, making a picture perfect setting for the village. In fact, the mountain will be a stone’s throw away from us as we walk. On undulating trails we cross a river and make a short climb up to Dingboche Valley.
Today we are having a second acclimatization day in Dingboche. After breakfast, we explore the Chhukung and go back to Dingboche in the late afternoon. The elevation of Chhukung is similar to Lobuche, that’s why the day hike acclimatizes our body for the next day.
After breakfast in Dingboche, the journey to Lobuche begins. We pass Thukla Pass, which is also called Memorial Pass, as it has quite a few small stone memories and prayer flags to commemorate the loved ones who perished in the Everest region. The trail today is easier than in previous days as it is on grassland. The view of Himalayas, Khumbu Valley, Cholatse Glacier Lakes, Thukla Pass and so forth make the walk really enjoyable. Once we reach Lobuche, we have lunch and take some rest, after which we walk up to the Khumbu glacier on the edge of Lobuche.
