Pass directly through the village of lukla and follow the path to Namache. The first village after Lukla is Chhpelung, and and further down the trail, you will pass through Ghat and Phakding. Both these villages have a good selection for food & accommodations and are conveniently located for lunch break. However if you still have stamina, it is advisable to walk on to Monju to spend the night as this will give you a good start for the steep ascent to Namache the following morning.

Day 04: Trek to Namache Bazaar:

After passing through the Sagarmatha National park entrance, the trail passes through the village of Jorsale and then along the river. You will cross two bridges before beginning the steep ascent to Namache, which can take up to three hour to complete. Be aware that there are no teahouses or lodges on this path, so ensure that you have ample water to get you to the top. You are now heading into a high altitude area and take it easy. Even the fittest people are prone to altitude sickness.

Day 05: Rest day in Namache Bazaar:

Today is rest day in Namache Bazaar for altitude acclimatization in Namache. During the rest day to acclimatization, we will visit few nearest villages for cultural experience. Khumjung village (3790m) is over the hill behind the Namache bazaar and takes about 2 hours to reach. There are several sites in the village. Khunde is a short walk from Khumjung. After a steep climb, we will arrive at an airstrip. Cross this and rejoin the path at the other side. After a short distance, we will pass a stupa. Thame (3750m)is a more traditional next village on the trail, and a good place to take lunch. Thame is home to one of Khumbu’s oldest monasteries.

Day 06: Namche Bazaar to Phortse Tanga: (3680m):

From Namche climb the hill to Khumjung and descend west of the village down the broad valley leading to the Dudh Koshi. Here there is a choice of routes, the Yak trail which climbs gently, but traverses a long distance around the ridge, or the steep staircase-like trail made of rocks embedded in the narrow cleft of a large boulder. The two trails soon rejoin and continue towards a large chorten on the ridge top at 3973m. This ridge descends from Khumbila. From the ridge at Mong the trail descends in a series of steep switchbacks down a sandy slope to the Dudhkoshi. After crossing the bridge you will reach Phortse, a small Sherpa village.

Day 07: PhortseTanga to Dole

The trail climbs steeply out of the valley through rhododendron forest, which gives way to fragrant stands of Juniper and large conifers at higher elevations. The route passes through the settlements of Tonga and Gyele (3960m) to Dole (pronounced doe-lay). The views of Khumbila and Tawachee (6542m) are tremendous throughout the day.
