Please let us know if there is anything special you would like to do while in Kathmandu and we can help you arrange that.
Day 02: Flight to Lukla (2,652m), Trek to Phakding - (B/L/D): Transfer to domestic airport to board an incredible 45-minute mountain flight through the Himalayas. From Lukla, we trek downhill towards the Dudh Koshi (milky river), a raging river that flows from the glacier of the highest mountains. The trail is fairly easy and well marked and meanders around the fields of potatoes and wheat. We will pass through many traditional villages to reach the vicinity of Phakding for our first overnight stay. Average trekking time is 03 to 04 hours.
Day 03: Trek to Namche Bazaar (3,440m) - (B/L/D): After Breakfast we start our trek passing through pine forest, rhododendron, magnolia and cultivated terraces. We cross and re-cross the thundering glacial river of the day before. We are now in the Sagarmatha National Park proper. We will often see groups of yaks carrying trek gear and goods being traded along the trail. Spectacular mountain peaks like Nupla (5,885m), Kongde Ri (6,093 m) and Thamserku (6,808m) rise majestically above us throughout most of the day. Average trekking time is 6 to 7 hours.
Day 04: Acclimatization day, day hike to Shyangboche (3,833m) - (B/L/D): It’s important to spend an extra night at Namche Bazaar for acclimatization purposes before venturing higher. There is plenty to do around the valley’s central trading hub. We will do a short day hike up to the Everest View Hotel in Shyangboche for stunning views of Ama Dablam and Mount Everest. Average trekking time is 2 -3 hours.
Day 05: Trek to Thyangboche (3,780m) - (B/L/D): We leave for Thyangboche early in the morning after breakfast. The trail follows around the ridges and offers spectacular views of Ama Dablam. Everest can be clearly seen on the horizon before we descend through splendid rhododendron forests for lunch. After lunch we cross Dudh Koshi river once again and begin a long winding ascent that takes us to the famous Buddhist monastery of Thyangboche (built in 1912 and considered the spiritual and cultural center of these highlands). The monastery has been recently re-built with the assistance of Sir Edmund Hillary after it was destroyed by fire in 1989. As this area is a devout Buddhist region, the wild life is unharmed so there is always a possibility that we may see some wild animals such as musk deer, mountain goat and Pheasants in the forest. Average trekking time is 5 to 6 hours.
Day 06: Trek to Dingboche (4,365m) - (B/L/D): The trail now ascends up to Imja Khola before an easy climb along a wideopen trail to a small mountain village named Pangboche (3,901m). Incredibly, there is a similar number of Sherpa’s here who have climbed Everest than the rest of the world combined! We may take a slight detour to visit an old monastery where Lama Geishi gives his blessings to those attempting to stand on Sagarmatha’s highest point. Then we head gradually uphill to Dingboche as the trail passes through the valley surrounded by awe-inspiring mountains all around. Average trekking time is 5 to 6 hours.
Day 07: Acclimatization day, day hike to Chhukung - (B/L/D): It is an important rest day for acclimatization before we go at higher altitudes with the option of hiking high up to the ridge overlooking the village or up to the Chhukung Village, you may spend the day exploring or relaxing and enjoying the unforgettable mountain scenery. Average trekking time is 4-5 hours.
Day 08: Trek to Lobuche at (4,955m) - (B/L/D): Walking on barren slopes above the tree line we see impressive peaks such as Cholatse, Lobuche and Pumori unfold before us. Rock Cairns can be seen at Dugla Ridge dedicated to the memory of climbers who have died attempting the world’s highest mountains. Walking further up we begin to follow the Khumbu Glacier (the longest in Nepal) to the settlement of Lobuche for ourovernight. We will feel the temperature drop here as we become more elevated and exposed to the upper slopes of the valley. Average trekking time is 5 to 6 hours.
Day 09: Trek to Gorak Shep (5,395m) - (B/L/D): The trail follows the rocky moraine of the Khumbu glacier towards the high settlement of Gorak Shep. We stop here for lunch and continue our journey higher along the moraine towards the infamous Everest Base Camp (5,340m). We spend some time here taking in the views and later on descend back to Gorak Shep for a night’s sleep. This spectacular village is surround by beautiful mountains including Pumori (7,145m), Lingtren (6,697m), Nuptse (7,745m) and of course Everest (8,850m). Average trekking time is 8 to 9 hours.
Day 10: Climb Kalapattar, Trek to Pheriche (4,252m) - (B/L/D): We get up early morning to climb Kalapattar (5,545m). This can take anything between 2 to 3 hours. With the weather on our side, once we have reached the top of the hill, we may be treated to one of the world’s best views of the great black pyramid that is Mount Everest. From this vantage point it looks difficult, almost unclimable. We then descend to the village of Pheriche. Average trekking time is 8 hours.
Day 11: Trek to Namche Bazaar (3,440m) - (B/L/D): There can be a tendency to rush, particularly as we are walking downhill and have already been to Everest Base Camp. However, if we have not done so on the way up, we like to make a stop at the famous Pangboche monastery, the oldest in the region. Otherwise we can stop at the village to admire the view of Ama Dablam. Average trekking time is 7 to 8 hours.
Day 12: Trek to Lukla (2,652m) - (B/L/D): We retrace our steps along the river Dudh Koshi. It is a beautiful and easy walk through pine and rhododendron forest with a view of Kusum Kanguru and other splendid mountains behind us before a gradual climb out of the river valley to the trek starting point Lukla to savor our final mountain sunset of the trek as we complete this exhilarating journey. Average trekking time is 6 to 7 hours.
