Today will be another rest day/acclimatization day at 4,450m in Dingboche. You can either climb to Nangkartshang Peak or explore Dingboche.
(Nangkartshang Peak is terribly steep upward to climb which is also very hard but totally worth it.)
Today’s acclimatization day will help you to tackle altitude sickness as well as it will help you to boost your energy.
After a second acclimatization day in Dingboche, you will be almost ready for Everest Base Camp. Trekking to Lobuche will be easy as pie if you have climbed to Nangkartshang peak.

After a tremendous experience of Mt. Everest base camp, it’s time to trek back to Lukla. But before heading down we will hike to Kalapatthar, the highest viewpoint in the world. It presents panoramic views of the entire Mount Everest massif.

Yes, you can do it even in June-Aug too but you will need extra days just for incase if anything happens because this is monsoon season. The domestic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla to Kathmandu can be delayed due to bad weather. Normally, weather on high altitude area is fine at this time.

No, there is no any hidden charges for what we have provided facilities. But if you used the horse for riding, helicopter instead of flying domestic flight, using five-star accommodation in Katmandu, that is your own cost.
Yes, people as young as Seven and old as 70 have successfully completed the trek. But it doesn’t mean everyone can do, especially if your children have never done any hiking in high altitude before, you can’t bring them just for their safety.
