After driving approximately twelve hours to Bung from Kathmandu or alternatively taking a flight from Kathmandu to Phaplu, from where the journey proceeds camping in woods, walking through terraced fields, crossing streams, through hills filled will jungles and villages with typical local houses, the travelers will reach Bung. Bung is a picturesque Kulung village in Mahakulung, which is rich home for Kulung culture and tradition, where the travelers can enjoy the typical Kulung culture and historical places. This exotic village is inhabited by Kulungs and Sherpas and Kulungs are the major inhabitants. This place, famously known as Mahakulung, is a combination of three beautiful villages named Gudel, Bung and Chheskam. As for Gudel, with three more days stretch of the itinerary ,it is suggestible that travelers pay a visit to Silucho Peak ( 4156m) from where the roof of the world famous ,Mt. Everest, Mt. Makalu, Mt.Baruntse, Mt.Lhotse, Mt.Nuptse ,Mt. Amadablam, Mt.Thamserku and more than 22 popular peaks can be seen on a clear day. In the lap of Silucho peak there is a beautiful lake named Salpa lake, where the God of nature is believed to be residing forever. Siluchong peak and Salpa lake both are believed to have supernatural power to bless the pilgrims who come there to worship these holy places to plead blessings for well being and prosperity.
After that the trekking proceeds through Muddi, Dobhan, Watelma, Gopichaur and finally reaches Khongmadingma Valley, a picturesque snowy valley. From Khongmadingma Valley, there is a way that branches out and that leads to Amphu Lapcha Pass 5,845m. Also, from Khogmadingma Valley, optionally, there is a route that connects Mera Peak (6,461m/21,190ft) ,which proceeds to end at Lukla (2,800m/9,184ft). However, this is an optional route and those who can go to Amphu Lamcha might as well go to Mera peak if they want. On the way through beautiful Khogmadingm valley towards Ampu Lapcha, the trekkers can enjoy mind-blowing snowy landscape and picturesque scenery that gives the sense of peace and tranquility to the trekkers. After crossing Ampu Lapcha, trekkers get to the world famous Everest Valley where Sherpa Culture with alpine flora and fauna can be found. As the way proceeds, trekkers have to go through Dingboche, Pangboche , Tengboche, Namche and finally at Lukla , that’s where the trek comes to the end. The trekkers can have flights back to Kathmandu from Lukla. This trekking requires a good amount of physical stamina since the trekkers have to walk through a pass which means it is a hard trail. .
