Where walking hours are average of 5 to 6 hours the most, except for few days that is walking to Everest base camp. Might be hard due to altitude gain, but the walk is pleasant, the other day climbs to Kalapathar Hilltop in the morning leads to a steep climb of two hours or more. But once you take short rest to catch your breath it will be all right and worth the views from the top of Kalapathar.
