We fly from Kathmandu to Lukla (2886m.) which takes about 35 minutes. Trek from Lukla to Phakding (2640 m.) takes approximately three hours.We transfer to the domestic airport for our flight to Lukla. Lukla is a small town with an airport. We begin today's trek from Lukla following a gentle climb up the mountainside on the left bank of the Dudh Koshi river. Nupla (5885m) can be seen in the distance on the opposite bank, and is a peak atop the Kongde Ridge. We descend a mountainside path that merges into our route to Everest, with views to a valley to our right; and at its far end, Kusum Kang (6367m.) The Dudh Kosi approaches as we pass a Mani wall and arrive at Ghat teahouse. We continue along a small path with many climbs and descents following the left bank of the Dudh Koshi to Phakding. Stay overnight at lodge.
We trek from Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3440 m.)whichtakes about four and half hours. The trail starts along a level path along the right bank. Thamserku looms skyward on the opposite bank. We cross a stream and climb the terraced hill from the Dudh Koshi route, to arrive at Bengar. The trail now climbs from the riverbed on the left bank into the mountain, through a forest to Chumoa. We continue along a path with many ups and downs; cross a stream, and pass the tiny village of Monjo. Now we descend the path of stone steps and return to the right bank over a wooden bridge. After a short climb we come to Jorsale's teahouse and hotel, also stop at the National Park Service where a park entrance fee is collected. We follow a short walk along the riverbed of this V-shaped valley where the river forks - the right is the Dudh Koshi and the left is the Bhote Koshi that leads to Nampa La. After short distance along the Bhote Koshi, begin the steep ascent to Namche Bazaar. As the mountain path zigzags uphill, we will emerge at a ridge top rest area that offers excellent views of Everest (8848m) and Lhotse (8516m.) The climb eases somewhat, and Namche Bazaar appears ahead as we travel along the path surrounded by pines. We will pass the plateau where the Saturday bazaar is held and enter the village. Namche Bazaar (3440m) is surrounded on three sides by mountain ranges and opens out only where it faces the Bhote Koshi. Stay overnight at lodge.
We take a day rest at Namche Bazaar for acclimatization and excursion around the places. It is an ideal place to spend a rest day for acclimatization at the high altitude before heading off towards Tengboche. For the acclimatization we can walk up to Khunde Hospital which was set-up by Sir Edmund Hillary, or can take a one hour walk up to Syangboche (3800m.) where Everest View Hotel is situated above Namche for outstanding views of Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku and Kusum Kangaru.

After descending to the Bhote Koshi the trail climbs steeply to Thame. From here, there are good views of the peaks of Teng Kangpoche and Kwangde and to the north is the Nangpa La, the pass leading to Tibet.

This day we can make a side trip to Fifth Lake via Forth Lake. Or we can trek from Gokyo to Gokyo Ri. Gokyo Ri looms above the village on the northern edge of the lake. We leave camp just after first light, following a steep path up the hillside. As we climb, the summits of Everest, Lhotse and Makalu slowly come into sight and the view from the summit of Gokyo Ri itself is one of the finest to be had in the Everest region - some say it is even better than that from Kala Patthar.
