Today we wake up at 2 am have hearty plentiful breakfast and climbing to our destination. We begin climbing the South East Ridge through moderately steep snow and ice section. If necessary, we fix ropes along the route. We ascend gradually to a plateau and then navigate around to an exposed ridge, which we will follow to the summit slopes. After about six hours of steady climbing, we reach the far eastern summit. From here it is a steady climb along the summit ridge towards the east summit, which for us marks our summit (also known as false summit). The main summit is not far in distance but requires some technical climbing which is normally beyond the ability of novice climbers, certainly in terms of the time it would take. And this section of the climb is only for very adventuresome persons, as there are huge drops on both sides, so this section will definitely be fixed with a rope. From the top we are well rewarded with superb views across to Ama Dablam , Makalu, Lhotse, Everest, Nuptse, Changtse (in Tibet) Pumori, Gyachung Kang, Cho Oyu and the innumerable peaks to the west and south. After snapping pictures on the summit and enjoying the view, we retrace our steps back to High Camp and with exhausted legs head down to base camp.

Pangboche is a beautiful and populated village surrounded by Everest to its north, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, and Kangtaiga to the east, the Kongde range to the south and the Imja Tse River flowing through the spacious productive valley.

The mesmerizing scenery of mountains makes your journey happy and enjoyable. After a 5 hours walk, you will be arriving in the Himalayan town Namche. Overnight in Namche.
The last day of our trek in Everest mostly downhill and gradual. Walking through the lush green scenery of rhododendron and pine forests in low altitude is easier.
