Day 06: Trek to Phortse (3810m/12500 ft.), 5-6hr walk

From here we short climb up and cross the Sagarmatha National Park, the further trail is quite scenic on gentle flat and not so far walk, the trail to the Phortse climbs up and is then narrow beside a towering rock face. The normal path contours around a bluff and steadily gains height to a large white stupa on the skyline and appears closer than it is Yaks often graze here. The trek offers us stupendous views of Ama Dablam and the hidden Hongu valley peaks and Kangtega. From the stupa part of the route is somewhat frustrating. The village of Phortse can be clearly seen just across the valley. From here we descend a long way to the Dudh Koshi River. The route is pleasant through trees down to the teahouse of Phortse Tenga. From here we continue down, passing a camp/lodge in the forest, to a wooden bridge across the river and from here finally we short steep climb and reach Phortse village. The Phortse monastery is located above the village. The village said to be the landing place of Lama Sangwa Dorje, who took to flight in one legend. Trek via Phortse Sherpa village is a good idea.

Day 07: Trek to Tengboche (3870m/12696.85 ft.), 5-6hr walk

Some hours of walk from Phortse will bring us to Pangboche where we receive our lunch. Pangboche is famed for its monastery and yeti scalp that was before it went walkabout. Yetis abound above the villages, so we watch out for the tell-tale signs of the beast hallucination. From here offer incredible views of Mt. Ama Dablam. After receiving lunch we scroll down from Pangboche to the bridge over the Imja Khola is interrupted by the much-photographed stupas en route.
[Included meals: Breakfast+Lunch+Dinner]
Overnight at teahouse

Day 08: Trek return to Phakding (2610m/8563 ft.), 6-7hr walk

From here we dive down to the valley floor below where it crosses a river and shoots right back up – basically why we have bridges. Gradually we reach at Phunki Thenga after some ups and few downs and then follow the trail Namche Bazaar. From here our trail is more pleasant and gentle flat.

Extra time and expenses due to flight cancellation or delay

The flight from Pokhara to Jomsom significantly reduces the journey. The flight is the shortest and most popular way of gaining access to the region but the weather is notoriously unpredictable and sometimes even during the season, flights are delayed or postponed for one or more days. Cancellation and the delay of the trip only occur starting and end of the trip during the flight day. In case of the flight cancellation due to bad weather, extra expenses (Airport drop and pick up, extra night in hotel, Guide and porter extra days wages, except the number of days included in the package extra days extension due to flight cancellation or some other reason from individual clients, must bear by themselves, etc.) might occurred which are not included in the package and one should ready to bear those expense. We also arrange for a Heli charter from Pokhara to Jomsom or return instead but this adds significant extra cost. While chartering heli because of the flight cancellation, the cost of the fare tickets will be deducted from the heli cost. We highly recommend that you take potential delays into account and allow for a week extra day in Kathmandu. Because of the flight delay, there will be changes in your travel date. Make sure that all the extra expenses occurred due to the unforeseen condition will be bear by your travel insurance company.
