From Namche, we trek along a high traversing path where we have our first good views of Everest and then head towards Tengboche Monastery (3867m/ 12687 feet) in a clearing surrounded by rhododendrons. The monastery is structurally located on a ridge top with commanding views of the Everest landscape. The view from this spot, seen to best advantage in the morning, is absolutely thrilling and stunning view of Everest (8848m/29029 feet) and others mountains. We then descend to the Imja Khola and continue ascend to the villages of Pangboche (3930m) and Pheriche (4200m) or Dingboche (4358m) then finally approaching the Khumbu Glacier. We then follow the glacier, first to Lobuche. The views are spectacular as we continue ascending to Gorak Shep (5100m) for a breather. After that, we hike to Everest Base Camp (5364m/17598 feet) which will give a chance to have a closer spectacular Khumbu Icefall.
