From a hill top above the airport, you will get your first view of Tangboche Peak (6367m), Lhotse Peak (8414m) and Ama Dablam (6856m).

The foot path becomes steep at times, resulting in a physically challenging day – ascending the hill could take up to 5 hours at altitude. From this altitude there are good views of Lobuche East (6119m), Lobuche West (6145m), Taboche Peak (6367m), Thamserku (6608m), Kangtega (6685m) and Ama Dablam (6856m).
