View full itinerary: Three Passes & Everest Base Camp
Thame-Khumjung Alternate Route

If you’d like to experience a different village on your return you can stay in Khumjung rather than Namche Bazaar. While you won’t find the shopping, bars, restaurants, and other amenities of Namache Bazaar, Khumjung located about two hours above, does have beautiful views of Ama Dablam and a quieter laid back vibe since it is bypassed by most trekkers.
