Day 4: To Namche Bazaar (altitude 3440 m/6 hrs approximately).

Day 5: In Namche Bazaar. This particular day is utilized to get acclimatised to the high altitude.

Day 6: To Tyangboche (Altitude 3860 m/5 hrs approximately).

Day 7: To Dingboche (altitude 4360 m/5 hrs approximately). Continue to trek from Tyangboche, past Pangboche, where a Gompa holds the famous "Yeti scalp".

Day 8: In Dingboche. It is time for another acclimatisation day.

Day 11: To Kala Patthar (5545 m) and Pheriche (altitude 4240 m /6 hrs approximately). The day will start earlier than usual with the aim of reaching Kala Patthar before sunrise, the best vantage point for viewing. Everest and the other surrounding peaks. A feeling of being in unison with the mighty nature overwhelms you as you ascend to the top of Kala Patthar. The views are amazing and Everest is breath taking. Continue to descend to sandy flat expanse of Gorakshep, and then to Pheriche where overnight break is taken. Includes: (B), (L), (D).

Day 12: To Tyangboche. (Altitude 3860 m /4 hrs approximately). Trek down back towards to Tyangboche. The trail descends gently, crossing Dudh Koshi through wooden bridge.
