Short but important day to go to Khumjung & back to Namche, not rushing for acclimatization. Visit of the Everest National Park’ Museum (first viewpoints of Khumjung village.

Day 6:

Namche- Phortse Tenga (3675m)
Today’s walk will be not long and it is easy with level trail and some gentler descending. The views of Thamserku and some more of the mountains will make you relax enjoyable for the day. This short walk is done keeping in mind to avoid high altitude risk later. Our stop will be at Phortse Tenga today.Lodge. 3.30 hours walk

Day 7:

Phortse Tenga - Dole (4040m)
We start walking through the hillside and later catch the trail off into the trail to Gokyo valley while going up into a rhododendrons forest embellished with nice waterfalls. Our overnight stay will be at Dole, small high mountain pasture village. 4h30 hours walk.

Day 8:

Dole - Machermo (4440m)
The trail passes from one village to another, and we progressively discover new mountains, especially Cho Oyu (8143m) making border with Tibet. Camp in a high mountain pasture village: Over night at Machermo. 3 hours’ walk. To avoid high altitude risk short walk is precautious.

Day 9:

Machermo - Gokyo (4750m)
Our destiny today is to reach up to Gokyo lakes then we will understand that Cho Oyo means “Turquoise lake”. We witness 3rd lake on our trail and stop for the night at Gokyo, center of mountains cirque which is considered by some as aesthetically better than Everest one... 4 hours walk.

Day 10:

Gokyo Peak (5280m)
Easy way on the south hillside so slowly our acclimatization is going well. It’s about 5 hours walk in total. The view from Gokyo Ri is only one of the many reasons for visiting Gokyo. Relaxing on the lodge, picturesque lake is worth seeing, and for many more.

Day 11 & 12:

Explore around Gokyo to Knobby Views, Fifth Lake and Nameless fangs.
Nameless Fangs (5800 m): It’s well worth scrambling up to have a close look at these tooth-like towers and the views are fantastic. But one should be cautious to make the climb due to high elevation risk, you have to be fit enough and properly acclimatized. The views of Cho Oyo and Gyanchung is breath taking form this distance, also, extensive view of Everest you’ll get anywhere in the Khumbu region.
Ngozumpa (the fifth lake/ 4490 m): it takes 3.30 hours from Gokyo climbing the moraine, the views of Everest from here is more extensive than from Gokyo Ri or Kala Patthar. OR you can choose to go to Knobby View (5553m): Another stunning viewpoint better even than Nameless fangs. To summit is more satisfying. It is most probably the best viewpoint in whole Khumbu. The only route that can be recommended is the spur that begins close to the fifth lake. Initially the ridge is steep but later it soon eases off. There are so called two summits here, one what looked the summit from below is a surprise, the real one is couple of knobs away. Even though, the false summit is also satisfying for most of the trekkers. From the real summit the lakes, glacier, snow and ice everywhere is an alpine scene without climbing any major peaks. Our expert guide will be very supportive to take you to the summit and carefully to take you down as descending is also not easy and it is tricky.
