Trek to Everest Base Camp

Sat/Sun, May 3 & 4 – RETURN TREK TO MONJO (9,300 ft.)

Tour schedule: We now start our return trek to Lukla airport. Our first day’s descent will bring us to the monastery of Thyangboche and on the second day we will hike all the way to Monjo with a lunch stop at Namche. We should arrive Monjo with enough time for a “Hot shower” before dinner.

And the days unfold:
The first day we hiked from Lobuche to Thangboche, with a stop at the High Altitude Clinic at Periche. On the second day we hiked all the way to Monjo with a lunch stop at Namche Bazaar.
