The trek begins at Phadking and ends at Lukla. In Namche Bazaar, we will get a chance for acclimatization. Namche is a market where trekkers can refill their goods and necessities. On Friday evening and Saturday, special markets are put up in the Bazaar. The Namche Bazaar has been a trading post since the traditional times. Apart from the market, Namche monastery, Namche library and Museum related to Sherpa life are also some attractions of Namche.
The Thyangboche monastery is the largest monastery in the Khumbu region. We will pass by the Thyangboche monastery while heading towards Gorakshep from Namche Bazaar. Gorakshep is a village in the Sagarmatha National Park. Sherpa people are the local inhabitants of this place. They make their living by guiding and mountaineering. Gorakshep is also the original base camp for Everest. We will begin our hike to Kalapathar at Gorakshep. Kalapathar is the most convenient spot to view Mt. Everest.
