Also, the views are magnificent with shining crystal-covered peaks, fabulous glaciers, Buddhist culture-valleys Sherpa settlements.
Similarly, centuries-old monasteries and a friendly environment full of smiling Sherpa people. So, it is time for our trek orientation before the thrilling and exciting flight to Lukla, the world-famous airport, to start the trek to Everest Base Camp. We begin walking along the Dudh Koshi River and passing on the Hillary Bridge, one of the highest bridges on the planet. Then you climb up to the gateway of Sherpa settlement in Namche Bazaar. Where you spend two nights to ensure proper acclimatization.
Likewise, from Namche Bazaar you hike up to Everest View Hotel. The hidden valley of Khumjung to see the world’s where only yeti scalp and the nearby village of Khunde. Leaving Namche, we make our way to Kayngjuma, then proceed to Dingboche via Phortse. Following the trail is the less frequented route to Everest Base Camp. Scenic Dingboche is situated in the sunny valley in front of the imposing Ama Dablam Mountain – a great place to stay two nights to acclimatize to the lower oxygen levels you will encounter above 5000 m.
The landscape on this trek becomes more and rockier as we ascend above the tree line on the moraines of Khumbu Glacier to Lobuche and Gorakshep, the last Guest houses before Everest Base Camp. Getting to our target and destination of EBC requires trekking over the rocky moraines. Which can be difficult but also motivating as the Base Camp is always in sight. Kalapatthar (5,550 m), which we will ascend the following morning, will be the highest elevation you reach on our trek.

Everest (8,848 m), Lhotse (8,414 m) Ama Dablam, and Pumori (7,165 m), etc. We will conclude our trek by heading down to Pheriche and Tengboche. The latter of which known as a famous monastery, and proceeding back down to Lukla from where you fly back to Kathmandu.
