An early morning stunning flight to Lukla, gateway to The Everest. Start of the trek from this region of the legendary Sherpas who have distinct features much apart from the Nepalese encountered so far. Trek north towards Phakding along meandering trails which are lined with stone walls, eventually leading to the night stop.

Day 3: To Namche Bazaar. (O/nt Altitude 3440m/6hrs approx)

Following the Dudh Koshi, the trail heads north as it gently starts to rise through rhododendron & magnolia forests with giant fir trees to the village of Jorsalle, where the lunch break will be taken. After a brief stop-over for lunch, the climb proceeds towards Namche Bazaar, a delightful mountain village, and so-called ‘Sherpa Capital’ of Khumbu.

Day 4: In Namche Bazaar.

This particular day is utilized to get acclimatized to the high altitude. One can explore the local markets, mingle with the people, walk up to the Everest viewpoint, visit the museum, and happily laze around and bask in the sun later in the afternoon.

Day 5: To Tyangboche. (O/nt Altitude 3860m/5hrs approx)

The trail turns northeast from Namche along a tributary valley and the mountain views start to open up, becoming more dramatic as the steep climb approaches the holy ground of Tyangboche. Tyangboche monastery is the highest monastery in the world which offers amazing views of a myriad of impressive mountains, including Mount Everest, Mount Kwangde, Nuptse, Lhotse & Ama Dablam, and it is also the home to the highly revered Rinpoche, a Buddhist Monk.

Day 6: To Dingboche. (O/nt Altitude 4360m/5hrs approx)

Continue to trek from Tyangboche, past Pangboche, where a Gompa holds the famous ‘Yeti scalp’. This region lies in high altitude; therefore agriculture is only barely possible, and the lives of the local Sherpas are Spartan by any standard. Much of the walking in this area is comparatively of a gentle gradient, although a leisurely pace is recommended due to the high altitude.

Day 7: In Dingboche.

It is time for another acclimatization day. There are day hikes available to Nagajun Hill (approx. 5050m) or Chukung village, which offers magnificent views of Amadablam, Makalu mountains & other peaks, as well as those of lakes and glaciers in that region.

Day 8: To Lobuche. (O/nt Altitude 4930m/5hrs approx)

Leaving Dingboche, the trail ascends gently but still at an easy pace. Walking past frozen rivers, we reach Lobuche where stone houses sit amongst the icy wilderness of stunning beauty. Once in Lobuche, sense of being close to the ultimate goal overwhelms you.

Day 9: To Everest Base camp (5367m) & Gorakshep. (O/nt Altitude 5160m/9hrs approx)

The whole day of trekking to the Base Camp, and then back to Gorakshep. The trek Sirdar will navigate the Khumbu glacier as the trail makes its way to the Base Camp of Mount Everest. The infamous Khumbu icefall is seen imposing itself at the base of the tallest mountain on Earth. Eventually, the reverse set off descends back to Gorakshep for the night.

Day 10: To Kala Patthar (5545m) & Pheriche. (O/nt Altitude 4240m/6hrs approx)

The day will start earlier than usual with the aim of reaching Kala Patthar before sunrise, the best vantage point for viewing Everest and the other surrounding peaks. A feeling of being in unison with the mighty nature overwhelms you as you ascend to the top of Kala Patthar. The views are amazing and Everest is breathtaking. Continue to descend to the sandy flat expanse of Gorakshep, and then to Pheriche where the overnight break is taken.

Day 11: To Tyangboche. (O/nt Altitude 3860m/4hrs approx)

Trek down back towards to Tyangboche. The trail descends gently, crossing Dudh Koshi through a wooden bridge. The trek continues downwards passing several yak herders and tea shops to Shomare. Leaving behind alpine meadows, the trail descends to Tyangboche for the night stop.

Day 12: To Monjo. (O/nt Altitude 2700m/6hrs approx)

Descend to Monjo via Namche Bazaar where the trail descends steeply to Dudh Kosi river. A slightly warmer climate of Monjo greets you at this altitude.

Day 13: To Lukla. (O/nt Altitude 2820m/41/2hrs approx)

The last day in Khumbu Region. The trail that is followed is fairly easy with some steady climbs through scrub forests with a final steep ascent that leads to a Tamang village and shortly thereafter to Lukla, where the time to relax in Sherpa ambiance is abundant.

Day 14: An Optional day in hand for bad weather contingency, additional acclimatization etc.

This is an additional day in hand is for guide/leader to adjust while on trek seeing how the group members are coping with altitude. This day can be spent either higher up in Lobuche or Gorakshep area or around in Tyangboche area depending on how the group is feeling.

Day 15: To Kathmandu. (O/nt Altitude 1400m/45mins approx)

The flight back to Kathmandu is short but spectacular. Rest of the day can be spent exploring, shopping or simply just chilling out in numerous cafes in Thamel.
