Five minutes walk from the lodge and you enter into Everest National Park area, where entry formalities have to be completed. Today will be one of the harder days of the trek but we take it slowly, enjoying the scenery as you climb gradually up to Namche Bazar. Along the way there are two suspension bridges to cross as you zigzag the Dudh Koshi River before you are at the base of the climb to Namche. A long steep climb but with several stops to catch our breath, and a slow plod, we make our way steadily up wards. The trail to Namche Bazar is a wellmarked, comfortable broad trail. Walking in the cooler part of the morning it is easier to breathe and get used to the increasing altitude. After an easy paced three hour's of walk you arrive at the heart of Khumbu Namche Bazar-3460m
This is first scheduled 'acclimatization' day for this trek. Health experts always recommend us to stay active and moving during the rest day too instead of being idle. We either spend the day taking a day hike to Thame or visiting Khunde or carry out relaxed exploration of Namche Bazaar itself. Namche Bazzar is the main centre of the Everest (Khumbu) region and has government offices, ATMs, Internet cafes, shops, restaurants, a bakery and a colorful market each Friday evening and Saturday. If we trek a few hundred vertical feet during the day, it will help us to properly acclimatize. Overnight accommodation is set at same Teahouse/Lodge.
In the morning, you leave the Namche Bazar and trail descents through pine trees and cross the high suspension bridge over the Dudh Kosi River. Then your trail continues Riverside and you arrive in Jorsalle and it takes about 2 and half hours.
