A short stop here for tea and continue keeping along the bank of Dudh Kosi (milk river). Phakding is about 4 hrs walk from Lukla on easy and steady paces. Our Resort is located further 30 min from town of Phakding. Check in lodge.
Typically this is a regular day of trek in the Everest region. The route or scenery may changes, but out everyday routine more or less similar like, we take the breakfast at the same lodge were we spend the night. After we leave the lodge walk for an hour and half or something we stop for tea break. Tea break is joined by cooking or biscuits.

This will follow for another days as long as our trek runs.
Trek to Namche (3440m)
Start trekking after breakfast. In few minutes we make the first cross of the Dudhkosi (river). Today we make five times cross and re-cross of it. Pass interesting villages like Toktok, Manjo, Jorsalle and walk a steep trail as the last leg of the day. Right after crossing the last suspension bridge, we get a peeping view of snow mountain at the north horizon to which many people confuse with Mt. Everest. The peak is Tawache, not Everest. The right view of Mt. Everest is seen from an hour further from here from a resting spot where is a toilet and one or two venders always stay for selling oranges, peaches or similar seasonal fruits and cigarettes usually.
From this spot, the steep trail to Namche becomes little softer but still have to go about 45 min to one hour if your paces are slower.
Namche (3440m) to HEV (3790m), Syangboche
In Namche walk through the streets and pass by the monastery on the way to Syangboche. A winding steep trail providing commanding views of Thamserku and Kwangde Ri takes about an hour and quarter. By the helipad, you decide go directly to the HEV or taking a little longer walk of Khumjung village with an important monastery here. After lunch it’s all free time to savor the great great vistas by all four corners.
HEV to Deevoche (3820m), Tyangboche
After breakfast in the morning, viewing the Khumjung village we take an easy descending to Kyanjuma and further to Lausasa and finally in an hour and quarter or so to Phunki Tenga. Cross the suspension bridge and time for tea, snack. This is the confluence of two streams one coming from the slope of Fungi Glacier, below the Khangteige Peak and another is from Imjatse glacier below the Island peak.
Tyangboche is reached in 2 hrs plus with a steep up trail. After the hard toll, at Tyangboche monastery area there are wonderful views of the Himalayan peaks as well as the alpine environment. This is one of the best locales to view snow mountains in all four directions as well as one of the holiest sites in the area. Pay a visit to the monastery is quite welcomed and even the bride and groom may get blessing. It needs little time arrange, but is possible if wanted it. Later descend for 25 minute is the lodge area, Deevoche. We have a very nice lodge to stay and stroll around.
