From Lukla, the way goes to Namche Bazaar and the trail will lead us Gokyo passing the forest of rhododendron and birch after walking the main trail will lead us to Dzongla viewing the summit of Mt.Ama Dablam(6,812m) and Mt.Tawache(6,501m). After that, we will ascent towards the Gorak shep and to Kalapatthar along with the magnificent view of Mount Everest, Mt.Makalu(8,481m), Mt. Lhotse(8,516m) and many more. Generally, we consider the spring and autumn season as the best season to trek to this place as winter will be very cold.We may visit the local villages of Sherpa community where we may have a close view over to their lifestyle and tradition. The Sherpa people can be helpful for us as they can give us information about the local climate and preventive measures also as the tricky way of the area.The highest altitude of the journey is Kalapathar(5,545 m).The trekking is moderate and strenuous in many places. The route has the advantage to covers also must beautiful Gokyo valley, Ngozumba glacier, Views from Gokyo Ri 5,333m. And Everest Base Camp.

The whole vicinity of Pashupatinath is densed with ages-old pagoda model temples with golden plated roofs and the gorgeous woodcarvings on the doors and windows. To the south of the temple, the holy Bagmati river flows down sweeping the burnt dust of dead bodies produced from the cremation on its side. A small green holy wood forest breeze maintains the site cool all the time.

All the Buddhists want to visit Boudhanath to feel the real sense of Buddhism. Boudhanath Stupa is one of the biggest stupas in the valley, has been built in the 17th Century.

Kathmandu Durbar Square: Around the square, there are some temples stood upright piercing the sky canopy and through the thousands of pigeon they spread the message of peace. Kumari temple is one of the most important parts of the square site where the ‘Living Goddess’ resides. Apart from those temples, a museum will be waiting for its visitors with an opportunity to unravel the treasures unabashedly. To visit this site is to know the historical facts of Nepal.

Soyambhunath Stupa: It is also known as ‘Monkey Temple’. The wide area of Soyambhunath is a hillock surrounded by small forest with some golden temples of Lord Buddha at the western gate and the main temple at the top of the hill.
