The fifth day of our journey is set aside for giving your fatigued muscles a well-deserved rest. In addition to relaxation, there are several activities planned to help you adjust to the surrounding environment. Situated at higher altitudes, the Everest Region has a thinner atmosphere with lower levels of oxygen. Rather than remaining stationary in Namche Bazaar, the process of acclimatization can be hastened by taking short hikes to Everest View Hotel and exploring nearby villages such as Khumjung (3,780m) and Khunde (3,840m). In addition to acclimatizing, you will have the chance to discover the picturesque Sherpa Villages and witness stunning mountain panoramas. Later in the day, you can explore Namche Bazaar, the primary Sherpa settlement and a bustling commercial hub in the Khumbu Region.

Lhotse, and other nearby peaks. Our path will lead us to a junction where one route heads towards Gokyo Valley and Base Camp, passing through the picturesque villages of Sanasa and Kenjoma. Continuing our descent, we will navigate stone steps until we reach the banks of Dudh Koshi River, where we will cross a suspension bridge. Moving through the woodland, we will encounter a prayer wheel powered by the flowing water, guiding us to Tengboche (3,870m).

Today marks the perfect opportunity to fulfill your dream of reaching the Everest Base Camp, where you can witness the grandeur of the world's highest peak. Our journey begins through challenging terrain, with the majestic Himalayas towering above us. The winding trail leads us down to Gorakshep (5,170m), offering breathtaking views of the Khumbu region, Mt. Pumori, Mt. Nuptse, and other stunning peaks and glaciers. While the original Base Camp was situated in Gorakshep, it was later relocated closer to Everest. Nowadays, Gorakshep serves as a resting place for trekkers who are unable to camp at the Base Camp due to permit restrictions. We then continue our ascent towards Everest Base Camp, passing through glacial moraines, rocky terrain, and streams. At an altitude of 5,364m, we are greeted by colorful tents of mountaineers aiming to conquer the world's highest peak. From this vantage point, we can admire the Khumbu Icefall and the snow-covered mountains in all their glory. Finally, we make our way back to Gorakshep (5,170m).

Adorned with prayer flags, Kalapatthar offers a mesmerizing and enchanting vista of Mt. Everest, shimmering in the hues of the rising sun. This viewpoint, dominated by Mt. Pumori, also presents a spectacular up-close view of Everest, a sight that cannot be seen from the base camp. After capturing these enchanting moments in our memories and cameras, we trek back to Gorakshep. However, the surprises do not end there, as a helicopter awaits to fly us back to Lukla and Kathmandu. During this scenic flight, we will be treated to aerial views of the snow-capped Himalayan Range and pristine lakes from high above the sky.
