After breakfast, we head to Gorak Shep. The trail to Gorak Shep goes through the lateral moraine of the Khumbu Glacier. Ahead of the trail, we can witness Everest along with Pumori, Mahalangur, Lingtern, Khumbutse, Nuptse etc. A small ascent would take us to Thangma Riju and climbing steeply up to the top through the torrent of Changri Glacier, we can catch our first glimpse of Kala Patthar, a grey-green hillock beneath the Mt. Pumori. As we reach Gorak Shep, we will find snow-capped mountains looming all around us including Mt. Everest. After taking some rest here, we continue to Everest Base Camp. We pass through rocky dunes, moraines and streams before reaching the base camp of the world’s tallest mountain, Mt. Everest. From base camp, we can see Nuptse, Khumbuste and Pumori mountains. Then, we head back to Gorek Shep.
Overnight at teahouse in Gorak Shep.
