You can also choose to just walk around Namche Bazaar and observe the local proceedings and lifestyle.

Everest and other Himalayan peaks such as Nuptse, Ama Dablam and Pumori. You would not want to miss that. It will take a couple of hours to reach Kala Patthar from Gorak Shep.

Day 11: Pheriche to Kyanjuma (3,500m/11,480ft), 5-6 hrs walk

Day 13: Monju to Lukla (2,800m/9,186ft), 4-5 hrs walk
You can walk at your own pace today as we head back to Lukla from where we started our adventure. There will be mixed feeling today. You will feel delighted that you have successfully completed the trek and experience the thrills and beauty of it. At the same time you will also be disappointed that you have to leave the beauty and the adventure behind. But, there is always next time and there is always next adventure waiting for you. The evening and the night will be marked with celebrations that will include a lot of singing and dancing. We will spend the night at a hotel in Lukla.

Day 14: Fly back to Kathmandu.
We take the earliest possible flight back to Kathmandu. Our guide will transfer you to your hotel where you can relax at your will.

It will also be a great opportunity to hear from you about your experiences and get constructive criticisms and suggestions that will help us make improve ourselves.
