After having ample rest at the EBC (5380m), we have a grand puja ceremony at the base camp. Soon after, we proceed to more acclimatization hikes followed by a summit attempt on Lobuche East (6119m). After the summit attempt, we return to EBC.
Mt.Everest Climbing Period:
This period involves acclimatization rounds to higher camps on the mountain going as high as Camp-3 and return to the base camp for rest and recovery.
