Breakfast in Namche Bazaar energies us for another day of trekking towards Everest Base Camp today!

Then we begin our trek by walking through lush forests of birch, conifers, and rhododendrons on a calm path. This attractive trail then dips down to Debuche, crossing the Imja River before climbing up to Pangboche. We are most expected to select the upper Pangboche trail as it offers a more original view of the Himalayas. We likewise visit the Pangboche monastery. From here, the walk is fairly modest as we enter the Imja Valley. The valley progressively unfolds as we approach the confluence of the Lobuche River.
