Everest Sunrise and Everest View Trek is considered as a relatively easy trek. Experience is not necessary for taking part in an easy trek, anyone fit and healthy enough to walk for 4-6 hours a day for 3-6 days can manage. Mostly treks that run up to 3500m are considered as an easy trek but as you reach an altitude above the limit only for two consecutive days and you will also have a few days rest between your sunrise and Everest view trek, and the everyday ascent (altitude and time) is also within a certain limit on a well maintained paths.

After taking a rest, we drive to Nayapul and start our trek. We will pass through sub-tropical valley forests, sometimes on the carved trail on the side of the cliff. After lunch, we cross the Bhurungdi Khola (river) via a bridge to the village of Tikhedhunga. The Ulleri Hill with thousands of steps and boulders that continually go upward will really challenge our stamina. We reach Ulleri by late afternoon. Overnight in Ulleri.

Day 04: Ulleri to Ghorepani (2,750m/ 9,020 ft) (4-5 hrs trek)

After breakfast, we ascend to the Ghorepani village. Ghorepani in Nepali means ‘horse-water’ due to it being an important campsite for traders before it became a trekker’s stop. Ghorepani is an interesting place with small shops and stalls for selling local products and crafts. It has two parts (one in a saddle and the other a few hundred feet lower). We stop at the higher part of the Ghorepani village to enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding mountains including Annapurna South and Nilgiri mountains. As Ghorepani lies quite higher than our previous stop, we begin to feel the chilly weather especially in the evenings. Overnight in Ghorepani.

After some more minutes, we enter the village of Ghandruk, a slope settlement with stone houses mostly inhabited by the Gurung community.
