DAY 4: Phakding - Namche (3445m).

The first day may have been surprisingly long for some, but stay at Phakding allows us to begin the ascent to Namche Bazaar first thing in the morning. At about half-way up the hill, a gap in the trees allow us to spy Everest for the first time. If the weather is clear the top of the South-West Face will be just visible behind the long Lhotse-Nuptse ridge. A plume can often be seen stretching away from the very summit. Namche is the most prosperous and the largest town in the Khumbu. A bazaar is held here every Saturday. The wares on display include meat, grains and vegetables, tennis shoes and trinkets as well as hand woven aprons and Tibetan boots. The Sherpas play host to trader from the foothills, as well as Tibetans from over the border.

DAY 8: DINGBOCHE (4,300m): Rest day

Rather than just sitting around in the tents or tea house, we encourage you to attempt one of two hikes. The shorter option ascends the hill immediately behind Dingboche, to drop steeply down to Periche. The Himalayan Rescue Association operates a medical post here and the western doctors conduct excellent seminars on Altitude Mountain Sickness (AMS) here on most afternoons or longer option is to trek up the Imja Tse valley towards Island Peak.

All the peaks - Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Changtse, Ama Dablam and scores of other lesser peaks can be seen from this wonderful vantage point.

I just have on wonderful trekking and mountaineering trip

I just have on wonderful trekking and mountaineering trip of Mera peak, Amphulapcha pass and Island peak with Earthbound Expeditions (EB) on November- December, 2003. (I have joined EB 2 times before for Jomsom and Langtang trek.) The Sherpa Mr. Dawa (Everest Climber) takes care of me very much and I hope I will have another good trek with EB in the coming days! Thank you Earthbound for planning it well, I will certainly recommend this company to any one who are interested to visit Himalayas!!

It really was a trip of a lifetime for me

Hello Rajan! Thank-you for your e-mail. I got back to London safely and looking for work at the moment. Thanks again for organizing our trip in Nepal – it really was a trip of a lifetime for me… memories that I’ll never forget. I would love to write something for your web site… please refer to below…. Hello Every one! In April 2005, a couple of friends and I did the Mt.Everest package deal through Earthbound Expeditions. This experience was one I’ll never forget. First and foremost, I got to achieve my dream of reaching Base Camp – thanks to our fantastic guide and porter, Ram. The trek was very well organised and the friendly staff really helped me out. They went out of their way to find me a pair of trekking boats (as mine had been stollen in India) and they leant me a sleeping bag and down-jacket free of charge. During the trek I felt that I was in very safe hands and was treated like a queen! The rafting and Jungle Safari was equally amazing. I would definately recommend Earthbound Expeditions to anyone wanting to trek in Nepal – their prices are very competitive and they provide the value-added benefits that other companies don’t. Enjoy your travels.
