Following the left bank of the river you will reach Phakding.

Later on, take a less-than-one-hour walk to Rimijung Gompa, the monastery of Sano Gomila.

This is the entrance to the National Park, where you have to wait while your guide pays the entrance fees. Walking beside the river, you will reach a forested mountainside and pass a rocky area. After crossing a high, winding path, you will descend to the riverbed and reach a V-shaped valley.

Owing to the small size of the helicopter holding capacity of maximum 4 pax, the party may be split into two or three groups depending on the group size, and there may be a short delay. However, in clear weather this short flight will be one of the highlights of your tour, with amazing views of the surrounding mountains. A short while later, you will reach 4,250m at Yeti Mountain Home, Kongde lodge where the panorama of the Himalayas with Mt. Everest towering in the middle will take your breath away. Here, we spend an hour awed by the majestic Himalayas which calls for a Champagne Breakfast laid out just for you. Collecting a lifetime worth of memories in a brief photo session, we journey back by helicopter to Lukla concluding one memorable morning.

At Lukla you will be transferred to a larger plane for the scheduled flight to Kathmandu. On arrival at Kathmandu, transfer to hotel in Kathmandu where you spend the next two nights. Rest of the day is at leisure.
