You’re really in the mountains now: Everest, Ama Dablam, Lhotse, and Nuptse are just a few of the stunning peaks that tower over the trail. You’ll continue hiking past the Imja Khola; this river drains the slopes of Everest and is actually a tributary of the Dudh Koshi. Your destination for today lies where the two rivers converge at the spiritual center of the Khumbu: Tengboche. This village is best known as the site of the important Tengboche Monastery. This is the largest gompa you’ll visit during your hike, and it’s a sublime sight to behold: flanked by pines and azaleas and set against the backdrop of Ama Dablam, it’s hard to imagine a more striking setting.

When you’re ready to continue, you’ll start climbing along a trail lined with prayer flags and bordered by mani walls. Mani walls are comprised of many stone tablets, each of which is inscribed with a Buddhist mantra, and should always be passed on the left. Continuing past the village of Orsho, you’ll finally arrive at the small Sherpa village called Dingboche. Known as the “summer valley” of the region, Dingboche experiences summer rains from the monsoon, contributing to its farming livelihood. Check in at an internet café or enjoy a bite to eat from one of the local bakeries before turning in at your guesthouse, where you’ll spend the night. Today’s breakfast, lunch, and dinner are included.

Day 7 : Acclimatization Day- Hike to Nagarjun hill and return: Walking Distance – 5 to 6 km, Duration: 4 to 5 hours

Now that you’ve reached altitudes greater than 4,000 meters, you’ll need more time to adjust to the rarified air. Today is therefore reserved for acclimatization—but that doesn’t mean you have to sit still. Just south of Dingboche is a steep hike to the top of Nagarjun Hill, from which you can obtain gobsmacking views of Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Lobuche, and Taboche. Trekking to this rewarding vantage point also offers a panoramic vista of the entire Imja Khola valley. When you’ve had your fill of sightseeing, return to Dingboche to explore its many guesthouses, restaurants, bakeries, and shops. Dingboche is also noted for hosting one of the world’s highest billiards parlors. For our money, there’s nothing more relaxing than kicking back with a mug of butter tea while enjoying the solitary splendor of Imja Tse, the 6,189-meter mountain better known as Island Peak, which rises above town. You’ll spend the night at your guesthouse in Dingboche with attached bathroom.

Day 8 : Dingboche to Lobuche (4910m/16105ft) Walking Distance – 11 to 12 km, Duration: 5 hours

After leaving Dingboche, today’s hike takes you through windswept pastures and past the lonely huts of yak herders. As you trek towards the tiny settlement of Lobuche, you’ll notice changes in the local terrain. The woodlands of the past few days have now thinned out, replaced with scattered shrubs and rocky, snow-dusted grasslands. Your route will afford you with a good look at the now-familiar peaks of Lhotse and Ama Dablam, but there are even more mountains to be identified from here. Ask your guide to point out Lingtren, Pumori, and Khumbutse. Today’s trek ends at Lobuche, a small village nestled in the shadow of the mountain which shares its name. Lobuche is comprised almost entirely of guesthouses, so it’s the ideal spot to spend the night. Make sure to get plenty of rest so you’re ready for the hike to Everest Base Camp in the morning.
