Beyond Duglha we trek up the steep terminal moraine of the Khumbu Glacier. We find our way through the boulder-strewn slopes as we ascend Chupki Lhara, an eerie ridge top with dramatic mountains views. At the top of the ridge we will find an array of stones with prayer flags used as memorials to scott Fischer (American mountaineer) and 10 times Everest submitter Babu Chiri Sherpa (mountains guide from Nepal) who perished on a mission to climb Everest. As the trail drops to the Khumbu Glacier moraine, we find ourselves right in front of several great peaks - Khumbutse, Lingtren, Pumori and Mahalangur himal. We are now in the vicinity of Everest but the great mountain still remains hidden. Nuptse towers to the right as the trail crosses the Khumbu Glacier. As we trek along a murmuring stream we do not see the Khumbu glacier because of its lateral moraine wall we begin to feel a little out of breath due to high altitude.

After a lunch, we take the trail to Everest Base camp through the once vast Gorak shep lake. Continuing straight ahead, we come through the Indian army mountaineer’s memorials. As we reach Everest Base Camp we cannot stop ourselves from appreciating the Everest climbers those take the hazardous route through the Khumbu icefall. Mountaineer's tents stand out in bright colors against all the dull gray surroundings. Nuptse, Khumbuste & Pumori are the mountains we can view from base camp. We cannot see actual view of Mt. Everest from here. By now we have met the ultimate objective of our trip. However, the sunset view from Kala Patthar is more admirable than the sunrise view, so it is suggested to visit Kala Patthar during sunset. As the setting sun's rays strike the snow capped mountains the resulting scenery is indescribable. For those trekkers who wish to continue to Kala Patthar, our guides and Sherpa’s co-ordinate your hike to Kala Patthar for amazing sunset view rather than waiting until the next day. Overnight in Gorak Shep at a local lodge with Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner basis.

Today, we start early in the moring to catch the dramatic views from Kala Patthar witnessing the first light of day shining on Mt. Everest. However, we need to get prepared for an early morning, dark and cold temperature. There is always the potential for chilly winds which are quite common. Familiar peaks such as Lingtren, Khumbutse, Changtse tower to the east even as Everest begins to reveal itself emerging between the west shoulder crest and Nuptse. During the ascent to Kala Patthar we can pause to catch our breath at several outstanding viewpoints to snap pictures. After several hours of an ascent, we reach kala Patthar. From here we scramble to climb the rocky outcrop near to the summit marked by cairns & prayer flags. As we reach the top, we sit on the Kala Patthar rocks our eyes taking in the unbelievable Himalayan Panorama, wandering from one mighty massif to another. We take as many pictures as we can with our camera and take the view with our mind's for last time. On being back to Gorak shep, we have breakfast and wait other participants to return back. Those participants who plan to visit Everest base camp today will have early breakfast to start early as Everest base camp hike takes longer time (4-5 hrs.) than the Kala Patthar hike. Upon return back to Gorak shep, the group will have lunch together and afternoon time is taken to descend down to Pheriche for a good night's rest. Overnight at Guesthouse with Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner basis.

The path reaches Sansa which is the major trail junction in the region. We stop at Kyangjuma (3,570 m) for a relaxed lunch. We unknowingly appreciate the gorgeous Ama Dablam, Thamserku & Nuptse with every bite. Following lunch, the trail to Namache Bazaar clings to the steep wooded slope beyond Kyangjumpa, winding through several bends. We keep a lookout for wild life such as mountain goats, snow leopards and colorful pheasants while we pass through the forest by the trail. After passing a Chorten, we reach the army camp at of Namche Bazaar. We want to take a long last look back to Lhotse, the tip of Everest and Tengboche from here.

The trail descends steeply downward, after crossing the suspension bridges over the fast flowing Dudh Koshi & its tributaries the trail becomes more level and natural. By today we start to get warmed up by the light breeze. Any remaining sore throats and colds will be gone by today as we pass through this charming mountain air. Although we are travelling the same route down, we feel completely different views.
