Day 16:Dingboche (4320m).A short descent to Thukla followed by an easy flat trail and a small descent takes you to Dingboche. This is the highest big settlement in the Khumbu area of Sherpas.

Day 17:Thyangboche. From Dingboche descend down alpine pastures through the kharkas of Tsura, Orsho and Shomare to the village of Pangboche, the highest year round settlement in the valley. The Pangboche Gompa (monastery) is the oldest in the Khumbu and once used to boast the skull and hand of a Yeti, (stolen in 1991). Leaving Pangboche the route descends past some magnificently carved mani stones to the Imja Khola which we cross via a steel suspension bridge high above the river at a spot where it rushes through a narrow cleft. From there you have a gentle climb to the tiny village of Deboche past mani walls deep in a rhododendron forest before a short steep climb to Thyangboche through a forest of birches, conifers and rhododendrons. A visit to the monastery is a must. The singular beauty of Ama Dablam, standing isolated from all other mountains provides a spectacular backdrop and reminder of the height of Himalayan peaks.
