You pass through farm lands, natural waterfalls, springs and pine forest, as well as Himalayan flora and fauna on the way.
Day 05: Acclimatization Day
Today is a rest day but we recommend that you keep moving to acclimatise with the altitude. To do this you can either take a short trek of about an hour uphill to the army camp and visit the museum inside Sagarmatha National Park to enjoy the panoramic mountain view; or you can take a longer trek to Everest View Hotel (3900m) which is a steep uphill climb and takes you about 3 to 4 hours. From the hotel you can get better panoramic views of the mountains. We recommend you trek to Everest View Hotel. Overnight at Namche Bazaar.
Day 06: Namche to Tangboche(3870m)
Walking time: 5 hrs
Today after breakfast we will take an uphill trail for almost 15 minutes through the village, then we will follow an almost flat trail all the way to Sanasa village. From Sanasa village we will take a descending trail passing the trail to Gokyo en-route.  The trail descends downward until Phunki Thenga  and then uphill passing through the forest all the way to Tangboche. From Tangboche you can get a 360 degree panoramic mountain view including the mighty Mt. Everest. The main attraction of Tangboche is Tangboche monastery where Buddhist monks chant prayers and meditate every day. Trekkers who are heading to EBC are allowed to visit the monastery after 3pm to get blessings from the holy monk.

You will see yaks and sheep grazing on a pasture. Today you can get a view of mountains like Amadublam, Lho-thse, Taboche and Island Peak which is popular for climbing.
Day 08: Acclimatization Day
Today is another rest day.  You can climb to Nangkartshang Hill at an elevation of 5000m or you can head to Chhukung at 4730m, the choice is yours.  We recommend that you opt for Nangkartshang Hill because you will get a better view from here and it will ease your trekking the following day as you will ascend to an altitude greater than 5000m tomorrow.
Day 09: Dingboche to Lobuche (5000m)
Walking time: 5 hrs
The trail goes slightly uphill until Thugla then descends moderately until reaching Lobuche. You will see memorial stupas and prayer flags hanging on the hill over the Thugla pass. The stupas were built in the memory of climbers who lost their lives during expeditions of Mt. Everest. You will have an opportunity to get a view of Tawache, Cholache, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, Pumari, Nuptse & Kusum Kankaru mountains. The glacier ridge of Lobuche offers you the view of Everest Base Camp, Kala Patthar, Khumbu glacier and moraines formed by glaciers.

Day 11: Hike to  Kala Pattar(5545m) then back to Phariche(4200m)
Walking time:  4 hrs to Kala Patthar and 3.5 hrs to Phariche
You need to wake up quite early today because it is recommended that you climb up to Kala Patthar before sunrise.  The hike to Kala Patthar from Gorakshep is about 2.5 hour walk steeply uphill which is challenging. Since this is the final goal point of your trip, you need to collect as much energy as you can and use it. From the top of Kala Patthar you can see the 360 degree astounding view of the mighty mountain range including Mt. Everest and a closer view of Khumbu glacier.
