25 December 2005 - Departure time : 08:30 - Rest: 10:40-11:40 - Arrival time: 13:40
Trekking from Dingboche to Lobuche. Today the altitude gets really very high and will reach some of the highest points throughout the itinerary. Getting closer to Everest Base Camp, you will also start to trek around the most important and famous places related to Everest climbs and exploration of the mountains beyond the highest peaks.

Continuing the trek to Lobuche
At such altitudes, at the beginning of the himalayan winter, all the streams are frozen.
