From Namche, the spiritual hilltop monastery village of Tengboche is reached. It is the final destination for Everest View Trek as well. Stupendous scenery of Dudhkoshi Valley and Pangboche Valley have seen either side with Amadablam on the backdrop. The journey further continues towards Dingboche at the foothill of Nagarshan Hill. Trekkers take another acclimatization break on this village either by hiking Nagarshan or Chhukung Valley. The journey from here onwards will be full of moraines and glaciers. The sight of Lobuche, Pumori, Cholatse, and others looms large continuously until trekkers reach Gorakshep passing by Lobuche.

What if the Lukla flight gets canceled or delayed?
Have you ever heard about Lukla Airport and Flight?
Lukla Airport, Officially known as Tenzing Hillary Airport is one of the Adventurous Airports of Nepal. While hiking to Everest Base Camp, one of our prime challenges is to get a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. A Tiny Airport located at the corner of the Everest region has most of the time flight delayed and canceled due to weather and strong Wind. Therefore, we always take the morning flight to Lukla from Kathmandu Airport to avoid wind and bad weather.
So, in case of Flight cancellation and delay, either we wait for the next day's flight or take a Helicopter at extra cost on the same day. Normally, when the regular flights get canceled, the helicopter company operates Charter Flight on sharing Cost basis. The price will be around US$ 600 to US$ 900 per person on sharing.
