The path from Namche to Tengboche (our destination for day 4) descends through a forest of rhododendrons and birch trees and levels off with the Dudh Kosi river at Phunki Tenga. The steep ascent to Tengboche begins immediately after crossing the Dudh Kosi. Probably one of the toughest climb on the trail so far. There are trekking spots near Tengboche that give you a great view of the first sunlight falling on Mt. Everest
Everest Base Camp - Eastern Region
Makalu - Eastern Region
Word of advise, this is a tough one. So if you are new to trekking, give yourself some more time before coming here. It begins at Tulimlingtar, which is at sea level and slowly rises up the altitude. Makalu is the fifth higest mountain, east of Everest and so you can only imagine the intensity of the trail. But, it is worth the effort. The trail drops down to the lovely Arun Valley before it rises up again into the Bamboo forests. The Barun valley part of the trail begins in pleasant green meadows, but quickly rises into an alpine zone of long ridges of lateral moraine. The Barun Glacier provides an unusual and rare view of the Everest. A must take trek for all the adventurists.
Dingboche - Eastern Region
The path from Dingboche to Lobuche gently descends to the Imji Khola river near Thukla. This is where we lost our way and had to navigate through big boulders to reach our lunch spot. This is probably the last village on the trekking route. Above 4000 mts you can clearly notice the change in vegetation from trees to shrubs. Also, the elusive snow leopards are known to frequent this village and prey on unsuspecting cattle.
Lobuche - Eastern Region
After the steep climb of the moraine of Kumbu glacier beyond Thukla you reach a place called Chupki Lara marked by an array of memorials of mountaineers who perished on missions to climb Everest. On the way to Lobuche you come across Mt Pumori, Khumbutse and Lingtern passing by Khumbu glacier. This is where serious trekking starts and one is really prone to altitude sickness.
