One of the easiest and shortest days but you will start to feel the altitude from here on out. Today is an easy stroll starting with a descend from Tengboche to Pangboche where the trail will climb gradually for another 3 hours towards Dingboche.
If you start at AM, you should be there before 12 PM. Since you have almost half a day left, be sure to spend your time walking around the village or hiking up to one of the many stupas around the valley. Trek Time: 0 - 8 hours Difficulty: Depends on what you want to do.
Pheriche is pretty easy hike whereas Ama Dablam base camp is a full-day hike with lots of ups and downs. In Dingboche, you are almost 4,m above sea-level which is why it is time for another acclimatization day. Spend another day in Dingboche, either hiking to the sister village, Pheriche or you can spend the entire day 8 hours hiking to the Ama Dablam Base Camp.
I decided to just relax, enjoy the stunning view of Ama Dablam, and have a nice cheesecake with a good cup of coffee at a local bakery. I got really bored at night so I went out, wrapped with full winter gear and saw this!
Make sure to go out at night and look up at the sky, you might be able to see the Milky Way in its full glory! Trek Time: 4 hours Difficulty: Moderate to Hard, due to the altitude and the steep climb before Lobuche.
On day 7, we will be gaining almost m in elevation which is a maximum height one should gain at this altitude but since we have already acclimatized in Dingboche, we should be safe from altitude sickness. The trail gradually climb out of Dingboche for about 2 hours until you arrive in Dukla where the trail shoots up steeply. It's a difficult uphill climb and the altitude of m isn't help either.
After about an hour, you will arrive at a plateau where you will see several shrines dedicated to those who died in the Himalayas. It's a chilling moment to find Scott Fischer's and Rob Hall's shrines up here. They lost their lives during one of the deathliest disasters on Mount Everest in I highly recommend you to read the book while you are on the trail. After the shrines, it will be about 30 minutes until the trail forked west to Dzongla and east to Lobuche.
This is where you will have to backtrack your way to Dzongla on day 9 so mark that on a map. Today is the day, you have been waiting for.
The day you will reach the Everest Base Camp 5,m , but first, you will have to make your way from Lobuche to Gorakshep. The trail started out flat for about an hour and then it is a constant climb for another 2 hours until Gorakshep. Once you have arrived in Gorakshep, get some lunch and start hiking northeast from the village to Everest Base Camp. The trail to Everest Base Camp consisted of a lot of ups and downs on a very dry gravel trail.
It will take you around 1 hour and 15 minutes to reach the base camp where you will see a big pile of rocks, prayer flags and the Everest Base Camp plaque signifying that you have finally made it. It's time to celebrate! It will take the same amount of time to get down to Gorakshep. Gorakshep is not much of a village but more of a crude settlement with little to no running water or any pool of natural water that is not frozen for that matter. Don't expect much here.
The next morning, start hiking as early as 6 AM to Kala Patthar, the highest point of the trail 5,m , and probably the highest one can be without mountaineering gear. Kala Patthar is just a big rock but with a rewarding view of the landscape around Mount Everest.
Mount Everest is also more visible from up here than from the base camp. The hike is straight up for 1. It's not a particularly inspiring trail but the view up there is well worth the effort. It takes another 45 minutes to get down to Gorakshep.
After you get down to Gorakshep, start heading down to Lobuche before 10 AM so that you will have enough daylight to get to Dzongla on the same day. It will take around 2 hours to get to Lobuche where you can stop for a while and have lunch.
Remember the intersection mentioned in Day 8? That is where you will have to backtrack to but instead of returning the same way, turn right and you will arrive at an opening where you will have to cross to the other side. Once you are on the other side of the valley, the trail will start to go along the left side of the mountain heading west.
Now, you are officially on a side-trail, away from the crowds. The trail from Lobuche to Dzongla is by far one of my most favorite trails on this trek as the trail hugs along the side of a mountain, exposed to a panoramic view of the valley, the river, and Dukla. This kinda view is why I love hiking so much!
From Lobuche, it should take around 2 hours until you arrive in Dzongla, a pretty basic village perfect for a stop-over before one of the most challenging parts of the trek, the Chola Pass. Trek Time: 8 hours Difficulty: Hard. Steep climb to Chola Pass, walk on glacier and lots of annoying ups and downs to Gokyo. Day 10 will be one of the longest days of all, with the hike starting in Dzongla at 5 AM. This is important because today is the day we cross the Chola Pass and in order to do that, we will have to walk up an icy glacier.
The reason we started early is that we want to be at the glacier at 9 AM to cross it because the more into the day, the harder it is to hike the glacier as the ice will start melting causing it to become even more technical.
