Majestic Tengboche Monastery with a breathtaking view of Ama Dablam Mountain. "Ama Dablam" means "Mother's necklace"; the long ridges on each side like the arms of a mother (ama) protecting her child, and the hanging glacier thought of as the dablam, the traditional double-pendant containing pictures of the gods, worn by "Sherpa women". Tengboche Monastery is one of the most famous monasteries of Nepal, probably because of its unrivalled backdrop of Mount Ama Dablam. Tengboche Monastery is the leading Buddhist Centre in the Khumbu. The monastery is perched on a high ridge across the canyon from Khunde. This Buddhist monastery was burnt down in 1989 and rebuilt replacing the old building with a more solid structure. Pines, azaleas and colorful mountain rhododendrons surround the attractive Gompa (monastery), which rests amid stunning views of Everest, Lhotse and Ama Dablam.
A tough day awaits us. In total, about 900 meters up to Namche Bazar. At Monjo we enter the Sagarmatha National Park. We see Thamserku (6608 m) towering high above us. Following the Dudh Kosi for the fifth, and now last time, to be crossed, we get a tough final climb high above the river to Namche Bazaar. With clear vision in the distance we can see Mount Everest and Lhotse. We stay in a comfortable lodge in Namche Bazaar (3500 m). If we just go up in the direction of the military camp and go just around the corner we can see Everest and the Ama Dablan. Namche Bazaar is a real commercial city, on the Saturdays there is still the famous market and many lodge owners come to buy their supplies. Hiking hour: 5.5
We stay one day because of acclimatization in Namche Bazaar, we make a short hike with views of Lhotse, Ama Dablam and the Everest. We just go around the corner in the direction of Kenjoma where we have a lunch and for getting used to the altitude. This is really necessary because the next few days we only go uphill.
Today we walk at a leisurely pace through Thamo to the village of Thame (3800 m). Slowly since the height will be noticeable. With nice views to the other side of the valley with high above us the peaks of the Nupla, Shar, and Lho Nup we walk along above the Bhote Kosi river.

However, from the junction there is an hour of climbing before reaching the top of Syangboche village. From the nearby hill you will have a beautiful view of the Ama Dablam and surrounding mountains. There is a German bakery in Khumjung with delicious oven-fresh bread and real coffee. The village has excellent educational facilities, thanks to the efforts of the famous Sir Edward Hillary. A visit to the upper village Khunde, with its hospital, is a possibility for an extra side trip. Hiking hours:5
From Khumjung we descend less than one hour to Phunki Tenga (3250 m), after this there is a long climb of 600 meters to Tengboche. On the other side of the valley; the Thamserku (6608 m) and Kangtega (6685 m) high above the valley. The Tengboche monastery is the largest in the region, after a fire in 1989 it was completely destroyed and with help and donations it was rebuilt in its former style. Here we can, while enjoying many goodies from the bakery, enjoy the views of Everest, Ama Dablam and Lohtse. Here we can visit the monastery and the museum. Hiking hours: 7-8
