A spectacular flight and a jagged landing on a steep mountain runway brings us to the start of our trek at the village of Lukla [2840m]. After meeting the porters, we head up the DudhKoshiValley.Most of the flights to mountain region are in the morning due to the strong wind flow in the afternoon, so same to Lukla and we pass through a popular small village of Phakding and head to Toktok.

We continue north following the DudhKosi river and on to Jorsale where we enter the Sagarmatha (Everest) National Park. It is just a comfortable walk to get ready to climb to Namche bazaar which starts from the Hillary bridge. From here it is a short walk to the confluence of two rivers, the lmjaDrangpa (ImjaKhola) and the NangpoTsangpo (BhoteKosi) and cross the Hillary bridge,  followed by a steep climb (for about 2hrs.) to Namche Bazaar, the main town in the Khumbu region. Have to cross about 6 bridges. Namche is a prosperous Sherpa town and an important trading centre with a weekly Saturday market.

Namche Bazaar explore around and overnight Namche Bazaar is tucked away between two ridges amongst the giant peaks of the Khumbu. Namche now boasts an abundance of lodges and souvenir shops. It is an ideal place to spend a rest day exploring to Thamo 3493m./11447 ft. / Thame 3800m./ 12453 or around  Khumjung (3780m./ 12361 ft.) It is a nice and old village in the region and comparatively it is a big village.

From Namche, the trail contours around the side of the valley, high above the DudhKosi. Now we get our first really good views of the great peaks of the Khumbu including Mt Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and AmaDablam. Passing by several villages and numerous tea shops, we descend steeply to a bridge over the river at PhunkiTenga. The village is an excellent lunch spot, and here we can rest before making the steep climb to Tengboche. Although tiring, the hike up the zigzag path has numerous distractions, with rhododendron bushes, beautiful birds and superb mountain scenery. Tengboche is famous for its legendary monastery, the largest in the Khumbu. We stay near the monastery with Everest, Lhotse and AmaDablam framed in the doorway of our guest house.

This is a last village of the route besides some commercial lodges ahead. Also this is a real important day to check themselves by the trekkers either they are fit to reach the destination of EBC and Kalapatthar or not as it is already in the elevation of 4750m. If there is no problem for every one and can explore around up to Chhukung and even some more they can build the confidents for the next day.
