Ferichhe is the destination set for the day. Leaving Dengbouche behind, we follow the stone steps and hike down through the forest enjoying the scents of the fresh vegetation to cross the bridge over the Imja River at Chaturje. A steep ascent past the settlement of Pangboches can take us to a different bridge at Somar, where we hike towards another bridge on a flat path, through the alpine meadows and yak herds following the geographic region of the Imja River. Before reaching the bridge we have a tendency to stumble upon a path junction where the Everest 3 pass path meets the bottom camp path. Leaving the Everest 3 passes behind, we continue to Everest base camp path and hike up to the Feriche pass. Then a mile hike down the pass past the bridge and stone walls can take us to the settlement of Pheriche. In the evening, we stroll around the village of Pheriche. We stay overnight here.

As the trail steps down steeply so we need to walk very carefully as our legs are shaky and frequently get and fight in the rocky terrain.
