This teahouse trek is the perfect introduction to the Everest region and takes us along the main trail from Lukla towards Everest Base Camp, through Namche Bazaar and Thyangboche – trails made famous by many Everest climbers. We get great views of Everest, Lhotse and Nuptse as we trek as far as Pangboche, a small Sherpa village set at the foot of Ama Dablam, We spend two nights here and have the chance to trek to Ama Dablam Base Camp for magnificent views of the highest mountains in the world.

We follow the Dudh Kosi north. Heading out of Phakding, we first cross to the west bank, climbing high above the river. The walking takes us through magnificent forests of rhododendron, giant fir and magnolia trees, and both in spring and autumn the ground is bright with flowers. After Jorsale (2805m) the trail climbs to cross the river, and start the steep climb to Namche Bazaar. Soon we should have the first view of the summit of Everest appearing behind the great ridge of Nuptse-Lhotse. Another 300m of climbing brings us to Namche Bazaar, administrative centre of the Khumbu region and headquarters for the Mount Sagarmatha (Everest) National Park. Namche is an important trading centre with a weekly market at which fresh foodstuffs are sold.

We climb steeply out of Namche Bazaar to the villages of Kunde and Khumjung with excellent views of Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse and many other magnificent peaks. We may even stop for tea at the spectacularly situated Everest View Hotel. We will
also have the opportunity to visit the Edmund Hillary hospital in Kunde.Passing through the village of Khumjung, we visit the monastery where, for a small donation, we can see the only Yeti scalp in the world!

We descend gradually to the village of Teshinga, after which the trail drops more steeply to the river,crossing it at the little settlement of Phunki Thangkha (3250m).
Climbing steeply we enter the forest and continue to the saddle of a hill where we come to Thyangboche at 3867m. From here we have a fantastic panorama of the surrounding mountains including Everest, Lhotse and Ama Dablam. Thyangboche has long been a sacred spot. The Lama Sange Dorje, who first brought Buddhism to the region, is said to have flown from his monastery in Tibet over the Himalaya, landing here at Pangboche. Visitors should be careful to respect the spirit of this special place. From Thyangboche we descend through rhododendron forests before the trail climbs slowly to Pangboche (3900m). There are stunning views of Ama Dablam ahead.

It�s about 3.5 hours walk to the base camp from where we can pick out the route climbers take and in both spring and autumn we may well see climbers at base camp and on the mountain.
