Namche Bazaar is the main trading center of the Khumbu region and also a main gateway to Mt. Everest (8,848m). Overnight at Namche Bazaar.

Today we rest at Namche Bazaar to acclimatize our body with the altitude. We are recommended to go around instead of being idle. On the day, go for hiking to Thame (3,493m) or explore around the beautiful trade center Namche Bazaar itself. It's a rare town in the Himalayas with the availability of modern facilities as like shops, market, ATMs, Internet cafes and government offices.

From Namche Bazaar ascend up along the incredibly spectacular trail. The huge Mt. Thamserku (6,618m) gives welcome smile from our right. At far in the horizon; Everest (8,848m), Nuptse (7,861m), Lhotse (8,516m) and Ama Dablam (6,812m) stands proudly on competing to touch the sky.

On the bank of Gokyo Lake, the Gokyo settlement sits under the lofty peak of Cho Oyu. Overnight at Gokyo.

Today is the highlight of our whole trek. The Gokyo valley itself offers many breathtaking glacial lakes, mountain peaks and amazing local culture. As we climb Gokyo Ri, we find the actual assets of Everest region. This is the best viewpoint to admire the Mt. Everest, Cho-oyu (8,210m), Makalu (8,481m), Lhotse, Nupse and numerous others.
