Here we meet our other crew members, and after some packing and arrangements, we start our trek through the prosperous village of Lukla to Monjo. The entire walk to Monjo is mostly easy walking over gentle up and down hills, which is also the entrance gate of the Sagarmatha National Park. Spent your night at one of the excellent luxury lodges here, enjoying the local tradition and culture.

After early breakfast, begin with a slight climb to Jhorsalle, passing waterfalls and other culturally and naturally occurring items of interest. Today is quite steeply uphill, but this is a scenic part of walking through the beautiful Pine forest and from some point, can be seen as the 1st view of Mt. Everest. Thamserku (6648m), Kwangde Ri (6187m), and Khumbila (5707m) surround the natural bowl that Namche sits in. A steep climb up to the beautiful village of Namche Bazaar (3440m) will afford you further spectacular views. Namche Bazaar is the gateway to Mt. Everest and the main trading center of this region. We stay overnight in Namche Bazaar at some other luxury hotel.

The day begins by descending to the small hamlet of Phunki Tenga lying beside the Dudh Kosi. The trail climbs past some water-powered prayer wheels and begins a sustained climb through a forest of tall, mature rhododendrons. From the viewpoint at the top of the hill, Tengboche, there are awe-inspiring views of distinctive peaks like Amadablam (6856m), Everest (8848m), Nuptse (7861m), Lhotse (8501m) and inspiring views of other Himalayan giants. After lunch and exploring the monastery and its surroundings, get the return to Tashinga for the overnight stay.

This morning after a tremendous Himalayan experience at Mende, we descend to Namche Bazaar and finally to Phakding. After Lunch at Namche, we retract back to Phakding. We will work through rhododendron and pine forests with the view of distance snow covered peaks before arriving Phakding. Spend a memorable night in one of the best luxury lodges.

From Phakding, we trek back to the Lukla village. It is a beautiful and easy walk through blue pine and rhododendron forest, back-dropped with views of Kusum Kangaru.
