Lukla is a small town with an airport. There are few tea shops, lodges, hotels and general stores.

Nupla (5885m) can be seen in the distance on the opposite bank, is a peak atop the Kongde Ridge. We descend a mountainside path that merges into our route to Everest, with views to a valley to our right; and at its far end, Kusum Kang (6367m.). The Dudh Kosi approaches as we pass a Mani wall and arrive at Ghat teahouse. We continue along a small path with many climbs and descents following the left bank of Dudh Koshi to Phakding.

Today’s trail starts through a level path along the right bank. Thamserku looms skyward on the opposite bank. We cross a stream and climb the terraced hill from the Dudh Koshi route, to arrive at Benkar. The trail now climbs from the riverbed on the left bank into the mountain, through a forest to Chumoa. We continue along a path with many ups and downs; cross a stream, and pass by the tiny village of Monjo. Now we descend the path of stone steps and return to the right bank. After a short climb we come to Jorsale’s teahouse and hotel, also stop at the National Park entrance counter where the National Park fee is collected. After our departure from Jorsale, we enter a forested mountainside. We follow a short walk along the riverbed of this V-shaped valley where the river forks - the right is the Dudh Koshi and the left is the Bhote Koshi that leads to Nampa La. After a short distance along the Bhote Kosi, we begin the steep ascent to Namche Bazar. As the mountain path zigzags uphill, we will emerge at a ridge top rest area that offers excellent views of Everest (8848m) and Lhotse (8516m.), The climb eases somewhat, and Namche Bazar appears ahead as we travel along the path surrounded by pines. Pass the plateau where the Saturday bazaar is held and enter the village. Namche Bazar (3440m) is surrounded on three sides by mountain ranges and opens out only where it faces the Bhote Koshi. The village is a central hub of the area and food, sundries and even mountain climbing equipment may be purchased here. Overnight at guesthouse.

Poon Hill Family Trek

Alpine Eco Trek was a great company to go trekking with. From the beginning, Ram was very responsive to meeting our needs and requirements given that we wanted to take our 9 years old daughter and 11 years old son on the trek with us. Our guide, Ramesh was very friendly and knowledgeable with great English that inspired confidence. The porters that joined us were also really honest, kind and so friendly, it was great for our kids to be around Nepalese people and see their hospitality first hand. We highly recommend Alpine Eco Trek to everyone wishing to do Poon Hill trek, especially with kids.
