As the paths wind about many hills and valleys, you would be crossing rickety wooden and suspension bridges and crossing Imja Khola and the Dudh Koshi Rivers to come across wide open expanses of boulder-dotted pastures and river basins. Herds of yaks, sheep and mountain goats carry along their trudging from one location to the next and the Sherpa people carry out their day-to-day life in the mountains, which are both very humbling to observe.
Pass by many chores and Gompas along the way and reach the famous Tengboche Monastery for blessings from the monks. Catch glimpses of animals and birds in the woodlands and rejoice in both open panoramic views and small peeks of mountains like Everest, Thamserku, the Kongdi RI, Ama Dablam, Tawache, Nuptse, the Kusum Kangraru, the Pumori and Makalu among many others.

Standing at the lower terraces of Namche and looking upwards at the rest of the village is like standing at the center of an amphitheater show and looking around the arena with houses and people scattered about.
Hike to the summer valley of Dingboche and follow its mile-long stone wall to reach the Himalayas.
