Everest Base Camp travel blog

The early morning mountain views from the

monastery are outstanding. Everest, Lhotse and

Nuptse are at the head of the valley, their line of

sight flanked by Tawatse on one side, and Ama

Dablam on the other. Almost directly above us

are Kantega and Thamserku. Completing a 360-

degree panorama of mountains are Khumblia and

Kongde Ri which encircle us from across the

valley. From Thyangboche we head down to

cross the Imja Khola before an easy climb along

a wide, open trail to the small village of

Pangboche (3901m). We may take a slight

detour to visit the Pangboche Gompa - the oldest

monastery in the Khumbu, said to be over 300

years old. The views of Ama Dablam, one of the

Himalaya's most stunning peaks, are spectacular.

Continuing on, we cross the river again and trek

up to Dingboche, situated just beneath the

impressive Ama Dablam.
