After a brief flight to Lukla, the trek starts. The trails take you to Phakding, a UNESCO World Heritage Site (Sagarmatha National Park) in DudhKoshi's green valley, and then to the famed Namche Bazaar where we'll spend two nights acclimatizing. Trekking from Tengboche to Pheriche to Lobuche can continue; these culturally rich Sherpa villages are full of Chortens, Mani Walls, museums, and spectacular Himalayan views. We will visit the Everest Base Camp before the planned Island Top and ascend Kalapathar. Kalapathar is famous among trekkers as one can get a complete base from sunrise or sunset view to the top view of Mount Everest. Lastly, we're going to trek to Island Peak's base camp and summit it on the 15th day. Island Peak was called an island in a sea of ice because of its location in the middle of the valley. Its name is ImjaTse.
