The trail will start off relatively easy but will gradually become harder. You will be able to get your first glimpse of Everest as you are crossing the mighty Dudh Koshi. As you proceed on further, the trail will lead you to Monjo, where you could have a stopover for lunch. The next part of the trail will be more difficult. The trail becomes vertical and the altitude will add on as we head towards Namche, leaving one with shortness of breath. One should not increase the walking pace but rather step up slowly and steadily. You will be making a pit stop at Namche Bazaar to stay the night there.

Most of the trekkers prefer to get up before sunrise to view the magnificent views of Mount Everest, Thamserku, AmaDablam and other glorious peaks from the Sagarmatha National Park. One can get a chance to observe the shadow of the Giant Himalayas being projected onto the clouds above and truly appreciate their magnitude. As an energy supplier, one should try salt-butter tea and Champa – a kind of barley often consumed by the sherpas in the region. The lively cultural Saturday market is worth a visit and is usually full with traders who are trying to desperately sell their products. Overnight accommodation will be in a local lodge.
We will be commencing early in the morning to Thame. One must be prepared for the drastic and rapid change in climate and temperature – one minute the sun will be glaring fiercely and the next it will be as even darkness has engulfed you.The initial part of the trek is easy-going as it is relatively flat, however the views will be outrageous. After a few more hours, you will reach Thame. In the neighboring village, Nauje is a small Monastery for Tibetan Nun's. The Monastery has a stunningly beautiful giant prayer wheel, carved and painted in dazzling Nepali colours. We will be having lunch close to the monastery.
