You will ascend for short while towards Phakding for the first stop.

The following day you will take a wonderful trek to Namche Bazaar – through the trail that passes through numerous forest, farmlands and beautiful Sherpa villages. Namche is the tourist and administrative hub at this region. Hiking around the area there are several villages, especially in Syangboche (3700m) which have their own stories and legends to tell, on the laps of the magnificent mountainous belt of Kangtega, Ama Dablam, Island peak, Nuptse and Lhotse.

On the door step of your lodge you can see the smiling Mt. Everest greeting you and your loved ones. Lots of children do not get chances to be so near to the highest peak in the world and for the old age people, this might be the only chance to get their wishes fulfilled.
