We embark on an interesting trek in the famous Everest region after a short and scenic flight to the hill city of Lukla. With the bird-eye view of majestic Himalayas, lush valleys and hills, terraced fields and serpentine flowing rivers we reach the Tenzing-Hillary Airport in Lukla. After some refreshment and meeting with the rest of the trekking team we start our trek with view of two of the most scenic peaks including the Nubur Himal and Phari peak and end in the Phakding village. Trekking on the ups and downs of the trail and past the Mani walls, prayer stones and smaller settlements we reach to Thado Koshi village that provides striking view of Kusum-Kangaru Peak. Accompanied by the mighty and perennial Dudh Koshi River, we cross several suspension bridges, past prayer wheels and through several settlements in a trail decorated by lush vegetation and overlooked by humongous mountains far away, we reach to the settlement of Phakding. Overnight in Phakding in a lodge.
The trek continues in this enchanting trail continues further towards the famous Namche Bazaar along the bank of the torrential Dudh Koshi River. Starting with the crossing over Dudh Koshi River and the view of Kusum Kangaruu Mountain, we trek past the ancient gompa, some suspension bridges and waterfalls, through the lush vegetation and smaller settlements we take a round to Benkar valley. Further on the trail we reach Monjo, the entry to the Sagarmatha National Park and get our permits checked after which we cross Jorsale village to reach Larja Dobhan, the point of confluence of Bhote Koshi River and Imja River and keep trekking forward. Ahead this point the trail continues being steeper as the trekkers put some effort to reach Namche Bazaar with the first view of Mount Everest, the head quarter of national park in between the uphill climb to Namche. Overnight in Namche Bazaar in lodge
We shall have this day separated for the rest and acclimatization in the ancient trade centre and Sherpa hub of Namche Bazaar. Namche is a colorful village with many wonderful and interesting shops and vendors, fabulous food, and stunning views of the surrounding mountains. We can have an early hike to one of the many possible day hiking trails to the satellite villages around Namche before the clouds move in to obstruct the views. Hike to the Everest View Hotel for an outstanding view of the Everest, Ama Dablam and other neighboring peaks is the popular hiking option besides the day hike to twin villages of Khumjung and Khunde. Thame is another popular but a longer hiking option for the trekkers. On the way down to Namche, we can also visit the Sherpa Museum which exhibits the traditional Sherpa lifestyle, tradition and culture, as well as the history of mountaineering in this region and local flora and fauna. After exploring the vibrant valley of Namche and its surrounding, we return to the lodge of our stay to prepare for further trekking. Overnight in Namche.
The day takes us to the much awaited destination of this trek, the monastery of Tengboche. Traversing in the trail that marks increase in elevation gradually, we trek slowly to the village of Sansa past the first view point of Ama Dablam, Lhotse Shar, Taboche and Kang Taiga. Walking on stone steps and descending to Dudh Koshi River we cross a suspension bridge and reach Phunke Tenga, a village with couple of lodges, which is roughly half of today’s trek. In the other half of today’s trek we start with the uphill trek through forests adorned with rhododendron, fir, magnolia and pine trees and reach to the village of Tengboche after some hours of trek. A village surrounded by marvelous scenery of Himalayas, it is more popular for the ancient monastery and the historical Mani Rimdu festival. Tengboche Monastery is one of the largest monasteries in the region which hosts rich wall Thangka paintings and other ornate paintings decorating the monastery. The star attraction of this monastery is a twenty foot statue of Lord Buddha and the traditional musical instrument of Buddhist priest Lamas, who are occasionally seen performing with these instruments. Besides the monastery, the surrounding area is also marvelous surrounded by rhododendron forest that contrasts the white Himalayas. Overnight in Tengboche.
This day marks the beginning the next phase of our trekking experience in this marvelous region where we retrace the journey back to Sanasa and head for the beautiful Khumjung valley. After couple of hours of downhill trekking through the forested path we reach the village of Sanasa, which has the trail junction of Khumjung, Gokyo and Namche coming together. Heading on to Khumjung village, the much favorite village of legendary Everest climber Sir Edmund Hillary, we trek through much windy trail leading to the village though the trail is quite peaceful and with excellent views en route. A much different village than Namche, Khujung is a small settlement with an ancient monastery that supposedly hosts the skull of Yeti. Besides this, Khumjung also hosts a school built by Sir Edmund Hillary. We have overnight stay in this village, a large flat agricultural land between low ridge above Namche and holy Khumbila Mountain.
Today we shall explore other beautiful villages in the Khumbu region before trekking down to the village of Monjo. Leaving the Khumjung village, we start our trek with a easy half an hour descent to the sister village of Khunde, the village with green roofed houses and host of the only hospital in the Khumbu area built by Sir Edmund Hillary Foundation. After visiting the hospital, we trek past the traditional Sherpa houses, cultivation fields and long Mani prayer wall to the southern direction. After the prayer wall we have a short uphill ascent to the top ridge of the Syangboche airstrip. Trekkers move ahead through a long downhill descent to the river bed of Dudh Koshi River which provides an aerial view of Namche Bazaar which seems to spread out in a hill. After spending some time in Namche we trek further to the settlement of Monjo, a settlement just nearby the official gateway in and out of the Sagarmatha National Park. Increment in forested areas, beautiful waterfalls and streams are common in this trail to Monjo. Overnight in Monjo.
In our last trekking section in the Everest region in this expedition, we set Lukla as the destination for today. We trek past the Uche Chholing Monastery and cross a couple of suspension bridges and small settlement to reach the Benkar village, the junction of trail leading to Thame and Namche villages. The climate becomes increasingly warmer and alpine trees and vegetation is gradually outnumbered by the cultivation of Sherpa people and landscape colored with the rhododendron flowers. Past the waterfalls, prayer wheels and prayer stones, through several big and smaller settlements, crossing through several suspension bridges and accompanied by the mighty Dudh Koshi River we reach the destination for today, the hill city of Lukla. In the trail overlooked by mountains, trekkers are occasionally greeted by caravan of fellow adventurers and locals with their yaks and ponies. Overnight in Lukla.
You have finally made it through the trek! We leave for Kathmandu after completing the trek in the Everest region.
