Everest Sherpa Village Trek itinerary

The short flight to Lukla is impressive. We fly parallel to the Himalayas. The trek starts with a descent on a wide trail through the Dudh Kosi valley. Afterwards we walk through beautiful pine- and rhododendron forests until we arrive in Phakding.
Day 3 Phakding To Namche Bazar
From Phakding we climb up the valley and meet among others Sherpa's with their "Zopkio‘s" half Yak half cow transporting equipment for expeditions to their camp. We follow the Dudh Kosi River upstream and can sneak a peek at Kusum Kangru 6'369 m and Thamserku 6‘608 m, finally we enter the Sagarmatha (Everest) National Park.
For the first time we get the opportunity to have a glimpse of Mount Everest 8'848 m, Lhotse 8'511 m, Nuptse 7‘879 m, Amadablam 6'856 m and Taweche 6‘542 m. We reach Namche Bazar. Stroll through Namche, which seems to be a huge bazar. Enjoy the Mountain view and the Sherpa culture or visit the Sherpa museum.
Day 4 Namche To Thamo
The path is pleasant; we hike through forests and small villages. We can still see traces of the historical and traditional trade route, countless trade caravans as well as Tibetan refugees made their way here. We have time to explore Thamo and visiting the Monastery.
Day 5-6 Thamo To Thame
The road rises slowly and is easy to walk. The landscape is changing, we reach the tree line, the vegetation becomes sparse, and rocks dominate the landscape. We hear the sound of a river and come to a suspension bridge that leads above an impressive gorge. We arrive at the home of the Sherpa’s who since years accompany the adventurers to climb Mount Everest.
On rest day explore the village.
Day 7 Thame To Khunde
We leave Thame. It goes uphill and downhill. We walk through forests, which in spring has pink, purple and red rhododendron blossoms, even primroses bloom along the way. On the way we are able to see a few Musk Deer and Mountain Goats. After 6 hours we reach a slope. The road is narrow; it seems as if bruised in the mountain wall. Finally, we work our way slowly to the end of the path before the passage to the next mountain comes, it is marked by a rushing waterfall. Snow and ice nestle tightly to the steep slopes.
And suddenly we are on the top! Down the valley a barren, open countryside. A waterfall splashes icy to himself. In the distance we are able to see our Lodge.
