Early morning we fly from Kathmandu to Lukla via mountain flight of about 40 minutes scenic flight. With clear weather, we get fantastic views of the mountains, including Everest, as we enter the deep gorge of the Dudh Kosi valley. You begin your trek from Lukla following a gentle climb up the mountainside on the left bank of the Dudh Koshi River. Along the way, you will have a view of Mt Nupla (5885m) Kusum Kanguru (6367m) and Mount Kwongde Range. We then take a leisurely walk for about two hours to Phakding village. However, if interested in additional activities, we can make a side trip to a nearby monastery. Have some rest time rest strolling around the village for local knowledge.

From Phakding the trail follows the Dudh Koshi valley north, meandering through the pines, crossing it twice by small suspension bridges before reaching the village of Monjo, the entrance gate of the Sagarmatha National Park. Beginning with a slight climb to Jhorsalle, the trail passes waterfalls and other culturally and naturally occurring items of interest.

A steep climb up to the beautiful village of Namche Bazaar (3440m) will afford you further spectacular views and a comfortable place to spend the second night of the trek.

Accommodate your body to the high altitude of Namche as you have gained a much height previous day. Set in a natural amphitheater looking across to the jagged ridge of Kongdi RI (6187m), Namche Bazaar is one of the most attractive settlements in the Khumbu region.

After walking for one hour, you will arrive at Phungithanga. The trail climbs past some water-powered prayer wheels and begins a sustained climb through a forest of tall, mature rhododendrons. Look out for musk deer among the trees. The start of the Tengboche (3870m), the village is scattered across a vast, grassy saddle below a crescent-shaped ridge covered by scrub pines and firs. From the viewpoint at the top of the hill, there are awe-inspiring views of distinctive peaks like Amadablam (6856m), standing proud of the massif containing Everest (8848m), Nuptse (7861m), Lhotse (8501m) and inspiring views of Himalayan giants.

It is comfortable working with absorbing the magnificent views of surroundings, after Namche Bazaar the trail descends steeply back to Dudh Koshi River. The trail is more accessible now as we are losing altitude, and we can enjoy a gentle walk on the trail Jorsalle. We will work through the forest of magnolia, giant firs, and rhododendrons with the view of distance snow covered peak before arriving Phakding. Phakding is a crowded place but better for your overnight settlement. Spent your night at one of the excellent lodges here, enjoying the local tradition and culture.
