Day 9 - Hike to Kalapathar(5550m) and trek back to Pheriche (4240m) 5 hours.
We start early this morning to catch an Everest sunrise.  We climb up to the Kala Pathar (5550m) below the giant Mount Pumori. This is a steep ascent up the grassy slopes west of GorakShep. From Kala Pathar the entire Everest south face is visible as well as Lho La (the pass between Nepal and Tibet), Changtse (the northern peak of Everest),Nuptse, Lingtren and many other peaks.  After enjoying the sunrise, we return to Gorakshep and continue the descent to Lobuche to get to Pheriche.

Day 09–Trek from Lobuche to Gorakshep (5200m)/ Excursion to EBC (5420 m) about 6 hours
After a leisurely breakfast we follow the broad valley running parallel to Khumbu Glacier. The trail ascends only gradually to the moraines of ChangriNupGlacier; from here we make a series of small ascents and descents over a rocky trail lined with cairns that leads eventually to GorakShep (5200m). After lunch we set off on our excursion to Everest Base Camp.  This will be a fun filled high altitude walk along the Khumbu glacier to this triumph and tragedy spot at the elevation of 5430m.

Daddy - Everest Base Camp (Day 4)

Hari ke-4 Daddy masih stay di Namche Bazaar untuk menyesuaikan diri dengan cuaca dan persekitaran sebelum meneruskan perjalanan ke lokasi yang lebih tinggi.

Detail activities as per in ittinerary:
Day 04 -Acclimatization Day in Namche Bazaar.

Due to the high altitude, we stay in Namche Bazaar for a second night to help with acclimatisation. This also enables you to fully explore the town and its surroundings. Namche is a prosperous village, situated in a large protected hollow. The town grew in importance when Tibetan salt was traded for the lowland grains of Nepal. Today trade still continues at Namche and Tibetans are sometimes seen in the village trading rugs, Chinese-made goods, clothing, salt and dried meat. It is highly recommended that you see both the sunrise and sunset views from the national park headquarters above the village. The panorama can be stunning at both times of the day with a superb view of the Khumbu peaks, including great sightings of Everest. After breakfast there are various options, including a walk with a series of great peaks rearing to well over 6,000 meters just to the west. Alternatively you can visit the national park headquarters to see the interesting displays of Sherpa lifestyle and culture. Your guides will be on hand to offer advice and to escort you on the walks. Another option is the steep climb out of the village bowl to the Everest View Hotel where beautiful views of Everest, Amadablam, Lhotse, Tawoche, Peak 38, and Thamsherku can be enjoyed.

Yang tak larat tenaga nak panjat tapi larat nak membayar boleh je naik heli tu.

Daddy - Everest Base Camp (Day 3)

Summary - Day 3 from Phakding to Namche Bazaar. Challenging trekking and hiking.

Details activities based on the itinerary:
Day 03 –Trek from Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3450m) about 7hours
We start the day by Crossing the River to walk through blue pine and rhododendron forests, in the spring when the flowers are in bloom it is a magical sight.  Enjoy great views of the snow-capped peaks of KusumKanguru (6369m) and Thamserku (6623m). From here it is only a short walk to Monjo (2835m), where we arrive in time for lunch.  From here the walking gets a little tougher and includes a steep ascent to Namche Bazaar. It is a short walk to the entrance of the national park, where our permits are checked before we descend quite steeply to again cross the DudhKosi to Jorsale (2805m). The trek continues upstream on generally flat terrain, to the confluence of the BhoteKosi and DudhKosi rivers.  After crossing a large stable suspension bridge high above the river we climb steeply to the village of Namche Bazaar. A slow and steady pace is recommended on this section of the climb and we are encouraged to make the most of the fantastic photographic opportunities as the peaks of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and Taweche come into view for the first time. You may notice you are travelling a little more slowly as the effects of altitude start to become apparent. Take your time on this path which is used by the local peoples as a 'foot highway' on this important trading route. At Namche we stay in a lodge in the heart of the village.

Superb views....layan
