ITINERARY

Day 1: Arrive in Kathmandu

Namaste from beautiful Nepal! On arrival at Kathmandu International Airport you will be met by your guide and transferred to your hotel for an evening to relax.

Day 2: Kathmandu – Lukla – Phakding (B)

Your day starts bright and early this morning, as you head to the airport for your scenic flight to Lukla (2,886m). Your first views of the Himalayas from above will be sure to take your breath away. On arrival, meet your trekking crew, and begin the three and half hour trek up to Phakding following the Dudh Koshi River. Arrive in Phakding this afternoon with plenty of time to relax before tomorrow’s trekking.

Day 3: Phakding – Namche Bazaar

Your trek continues along the Dudh Koshi River this morning, and after a few river crossings you will reach Jorsale for a rest stop around midday. Continue trekking through pine forests this afternoon, before arriving at the village of Namche Bazaar (3,440m), your destination for the evening.

Day 4: Namche Bazaar Rest Day

The Namche is tucked between two ridges amidst the giant peaks of the Khumbu, and has an abundance of lodges, tea shops and souvenir shops as well as boasting magnificent scenery of the surrounding mountains. It’s an ideal place to spend a rest day acclimatising to the altitude, before your trek continues tomorrow. Those who wish to may join a two hour hike up to Khumjung Village through Everest View Hotel, for fantastic views of Mt. Everest and Khumbu Glacier. In the afternoon you will have free time to explore Namche, or to take a short hike to the top of the village for a visit to the Sherpa Museum. If you are lucky enough to be in town on a Saturday, you can spend the day with the locals enjoying the Hatt markets.

Day 5: Namche – Thyangboche

After an uphill climb from the village in the morning, the trail gently levels out offering panoramic views of Thamserku, Kantega, and Kusum Kangrib. After a few hours zigzagging along a level path, your trail descends to the Dudh Koshi River. After a short pitstop, walk uphill through pine and rhododendron forests before arriving in Thyangboche (3,867m). This destination is well worth the afternoon of hard work, as you’ll be greeted with amazing views of Ama Dablam Mountain and the Thyangboche Monastery.

Day 6: Thyangboche – Dingboche

Set out from Thyangboche this morning with a descent through rhododendron forests to cross the suspension bridge over the raging Imja Khola River. Walk past a long Mani stone wall leading to the village of Pangboche, before continuing your journey through mountain pastures to Dingboche (4,260m).

Day 7: Dingboche Rest Day

Today is a chance to rest and relax before one of the biggest legs of your journey. Those eager to explore may wish to take a short walk up to the Island Peak for some breathtaking views of the north face of Ama Dablam and the Lhotse-Nuptse Ridge. A hike up to Chhukum is also on offer, for panoramic views of the Island peak, Ama Dablam, Makalu, Tawoche Peak and others. It is important to have at least one hike during the day for your body to adjust to the altitude, before spending the remainder of your day relaxing.

Day 8: Dingboche – Lobuche

Your trail leads you north on a gentle uphill slope today, past a mani-prayer stupa looking down to Pheriche Village below. Today’s walk offers views of the spectacular peaks of Mt. Taboche, Ama Dablam, Pokalde, Kongma Tse and the great wall of Nuptse. After two hours of walking, the trail from Pheriche joins near Dugla, before a small wooden bridge over the Khumbu Glacier. Then continue for an hour up a steep hill to the top, where you will be rewarded with views of Mt. Pumori and other peaks west of Everest. After a short break, continue trekking up to Lobuche (4,930m) to spend the night.

Day 9: Lobuche – Gorakshep – Everest Base Camp – Gorakshep

Start your day’s trekking following the rocky Moraine Path, above the icy Khumbu Glacier below, before your trail leads you downhill to Gorakshep (5,164m) for a rest stop. Check into your lodge, before making your way to Everest Base Camp (5,380m) – the most exhilarating moment of your adventure! For those that make the trek during the expedition seasons (March to May), you will also see the colourful tented town. After time to explore the glacier and take in your achievement, make our way back to Gorakshep for a well-earned rest.

Day 10: Gorakshep – Kala Patthar – Pheriche

Early this morning, climb to Kala Patthar (5,545m) for a sunrise you will never forget. From this vantage point you will have a breathtaking panoramic view of the morning sun creeping over Everest, and the many other peaks in the region. After sunrise, trek back down to Gorakshep for a break, before you continue on to Pheriche this afternoon.

Day 11: Pheriche – Namche Bazaar

Your trekking today consists of an easy descent through rhododendron forests to Thyangboche. Enjoy a short break here to take in views of the stunning peaks of Ama Dablam, before continuing through green pastures on to Namche where you will spend the night.

Day 12: Namche Bazaar – Lukla

Today is the last day of your trek! The path is fairly gentle except for few short uphill climbs, before descending to cross a suspension bridge over the Bhote-Koshi River. Your final uphill climb will bring you to Lukla, to enjoy your last night in the mountains and celebrate a successful trek.

Day 13: Lukla – Kathmandu

Board your morning flight for Kathmandu (please note: this is always weather dependent and delays can occur so it’s important to always have a spare day or two free to allow for this possibility). From Kathmandu airport you’ll be transferred you to the hotel where you have the rest of the day to yourself.
