The trail crosses meadows and several streams, then climbs to the Sherpa village of Tashi Gaon, the last permanent settlement in the valley. Camp
A very hard day of the trek as the trail goes up real steep. We walk through the sparse forests along the ridge over a hillock and descend a bit to Kauma at 3,470 m. Camp
Today is a rest day as well as acclimatization day.
We again start today with a steep climb then through less steeply rhododendron forests to the top of the ridge. You will have superb views of Chamlang (7,290 m) Peak 6 (6,739 m) and Peak 7 (6,105 m). Then we will have a final descent through a forest of firs and rhododendrons to Mumbuk. Camp

From here you can have a good views of Peak 6. Nhe Kharka is located on a large open grassy plain at an elevation of 3000 m. from here you will have great mountain views. Camp
The trail today turns westward and leaves the rhododendron forests for alpine tundra. There are excellent views of Pyramid Peak (7,168 m), Peak 4 (6,720 m) etc. Sherson is at 4,615 m a bit dangerous day as the altitude gains more than 1,500 m but we don't have a choice because we do not have any suitable camp between Nhe Kharka and Sherson.
Today is a gradual climb to a minor pass about 100 m . From here you will have a magnificent south face views of Makalu also you will be able to see the complete panorama of Everest and Lhotse. Camp

The trail continues through meadows where yaks graze. In the distance you can glimpse the summit of Everest, girt by the impressive rock walls of Lhotse and Nuptse. Start by passing by a spring, and then continue slightly takes you to Tengboche, the cultural heart of Everest. Camp Overnight.
The trail descends to the right flank of the Dudh Kosi and then leads to the large Sherpa settlement and then ascends to the Namche Bazar.
This day serves as an 'extra' day. If we get across the passes in time then we take our time relaxing in Namche. Otherwise we are already on the trek.
