After lunch, we are ready for our adventure to the targeted destination and we continue our trek towards the Everest Base Camp and to the Khumbu Ice-fall. The path from here can be misleading, so follow the lead Sherpa, since every year the trail changes due to the movements of the glacier, and the walk is quite strenuous due to the high altitude and thin air. The walk passes over rocky dunes and moraine and streams until you reach the base camp. If you are here during the high expedition season, the camp might feel like a city! It takes 2-3 hrs to get to base camp, and after a grand time here, we go back over the journey to Gorekshep for the overnight at lodge.

A small rocky peak “Kalapather” offer sights beyond imagination as the Everest looks amazing, and the panoramic view from this spot is something to cherish, and you'll feel it’s worth the hard climb up to here and to feel at the top of the world when you can see to the South the Khumbu glacier sweeps below you, and you can also see the Everest Base camp down below on the moraine of Khumbu glacier and many mountain scenes; Pumari (7,145m), Lingtren (6,695m), Khumbutse (6,623m), Changtse (7,550m), Nupse (7879m), Everest itself etc. After breakfast in Gorakshep we trek down to Dhugla, and then stay high above the valley floor in Pheriche, in Imja valley.
