Day 10 : Chhuking to Lobuche (4,930m) via Kongma La (5,535m) – 7 to 8 Hours After a very early morning breakfast with pack lunch, the rocky small trail leads you ascent up to Kongma La (5,535m). You will probably find this pass a bit harder than previous days trekking. We head down directly west out of Chukhung on a small, rocky trail and contour around many hillsides, usually not very steep, until we reach the Pokalden Base Camp. After a few other steeper hills, we will reach another Base Camp for Pokalden and a clear blue lake which sits just below the pass. The trail still leads us for another half hour with great view but impossibly built trails into the cliff-side. After few hours later, we have reached the Kongma La, our highest pass at 5,546 meters. Then the trail descends steeply and get in Lobuche crossing Khumbu glacier. Stay overnight here.

Day 11 : Lobuche to Gorakshep (5100mtrs) walk 3 Hours & Everest Base Camp (5,360m) -2 to 3 hoursAfter breakfast, the trek continues its gentle and sometime direct ascent to a nearby glacier. The trail goes to Gorakshep is rocky and windy but it offers good views of Mt. Pumori. There are also beautiful views of the Everest Base camp and Khumbu glacier. After lunch, we will be ready for our adventure to the targeted destination and continue our trek towards the Everest Base Camp and to the Khumbu Ice-fall. The path from there can be misleading. Follow the lead Sherpa since every year the trail changes due to the movements of the glacier. The walk is quite strenuous due to the high altitude and thin air and passes over rocky dunes, moraine, and streams, till you reach the base camp. If you are trekking during the high expedition season it may feel like city up there. It takes 2-3 hrs to get to base camp and after a grand time here, we go back over to Gorekshep to stay overnight at a lodge.

Day 12 : Gorakshep to Kalapathar (5,550m) -2 hours & Stroll back to Dzongla (4,830m) -5 to 6 hoursVery early in morning we will have to climb up 2 hours to Kalapathar for 360 degree view of the mountain peaks. When reaching the top, you will feel joyful as you achieve the moment that you have been dreaming of since the beginning of your journey. A small rocky peak “Kalapattar” offers you beyond imagination views. The panoramic view from this spot is something to cherish and you feel it’s worth the hard climb up to here to feel at the top of the world. You can also see the Everest Base camp down below on the moraine of Khumbu glacier and many mountainous scenery such as: Pumari (7,145m), Lingtren (6,695m), Khumbutse (6,623m), Changtse (7,550m), Nupse (7879m), and even Everest itself. After breakfast in Gorakshep, we trek down to Dhugla then continue staying high above the valley floor in Imja valley. It is the only place in Khumbu where barley is grown. Enjoy the scenery and stay overnight in the hotel.

Day 13 : Dzongla to Tangnank (4,700m) via Chola La (5,420m) -6 to7 hoursThe views today are magnificent even though we have left Everest behind us. However we can still glimpse Mt. Cho Oyu (8,153m), the sixth highest mountain in the world. The trail goes up to Cho La Pass and the trek is hard work indeed, involving a steep scramble up rock boulders and then a walk across the gently ascending, snow-covered glacier on the pass. Even though, the views of the route ahead of the glacier itself are breathtaking you might feel exhausted. For the first part of the descent there are discernible paths that zigzag down the mountainside - slippery in snowy rocky trail. After this we descend through steep boulder scattered slopes to the Gokyo valley; turquoise lakes and great glaciers. Finally we climb up a gentle slope to the top. From here it’s all downhill following a narrow river valley all the way to its base where we stay overnight at Tangnak (4,700m), a small Sherpa settlement beneath huge rock.

Day 14 : Thangnak to Gokyo (4,790m) -2 to 3 hours.After late breakfast the trail leads us through the Nagjumpa glacier (biggest glacier of the Nepal Himalayas) and ascend a trail which catches the main route of Gokyo. Here there are beautiful lakes with Siberian ducks swimming across the mirror-calm surface. The rest of the day you can relax in hotel or climb up to Gokyo Peak (5,360m) to explore. This trek is a once in a lifetime opportunity to enjoy the beautiful isolated Himalayan scenes by exploring around. Stay overnight here.

Day 15 : Rest day in Gokyo, Explore Ngjumpa Glacier or fifth lake/ Ngozumpa Tsho (4,990m) -2 to 3 hours Very early in the morning, about a 2 hours hike up to the Gokyo Ri (5,360m) for the breathtaking view of a sunrise atop the mountain with view of the four highest mountains including Mt. Everest. This will be an unforgettable memory and enjoy around the top. We have a great memories and stroll back an hour to Gokyo for breakfast then take a rest and relax all the day.

Day 16 : Gokyo to Marulung (4,150m) via Renjo La (5,360m) – 7 to 8 hours Today is big day of trekking over the Renjo La (5,360m). You leave your camp following an early breakfast and climb into a wide curie making for the ridge line ahead of you. This is our last challenging pass, when you come over the pass you are greeted with an incredible panorama looking out over the turquoise lakes at Gokyo and across the Mt. Everest. You descend over rough glacial slabs and moraine to you campsite in a secluded location on the western shore of Gokyo. Probably, we need ropes to descend into remote northern valley about 100 meters down during Nov-Feb. There is a chance we will meet Tibetan Traders descending from the Nangpa La pass that leads through the Himalayas from Tibet with their caravans of woolly yaks laden with goods.

Day 17 : Marulung to Thame (3,800m) – 4 to 5 hoursWe are heading down into Nangpa Valley. Until 2005 this valley was off limits to trekkers because it was a main access route to the pass linking Nepal and Tibet. For decades, many Tibetan traders have traveled this route, bringing a variety of Chinese goods on the backs of their yaks to sell in Namche Bazaar. The Thame monastery which is attached with the rock famous ancient monetary was built in the fourteenth century. Trek back to the lodge. You have great chance to talk with Everest Hero, Mr. Appa Sherpa, about his experience of climbing Everest twenty times.

Day 18 : Thame to Namche Bazar (3,430m) -3 to 4 hoursAfter breakfast the treks leads us down the river then goes gradual down and kind of flat turn south down valley towards Namche Bazaar through rhododendron and juniper forest with isolated Sherpa village. The rest of day we enjoying with tremendous mountains scenery in Namche Bazaar.

Day 19 : Namche Bazaar to Lukla (2,800m) -6 to 7 hoursAfter a long walk we'll have long last trek back to Lukla today. We descend a long ways before crossing the bridge. After a further walk to Monju we stop in Phakding for lunch. We will remind ourselves again to enjoy the lush green scenery around us as we pass through the incredible mountain scenery and local Sherpa villages until Lukla. You'll have time to wander around the areas and the guide will reconfirm your flight ticket. Enjoy the last dinner and celebrate with your crew before heading back to stay overnight at the hotel.

Day 20 : Fly back to Kathmandu -30 minutes Normally, the flight for Kathmandu is in the morning due to the wind in the afternoon; sometime the flight time can be delayed due to bad weather and other reason beyond our control.
