Day 02 - Kathmandu valley sightseeing tour

Touring the World Heritage Sites in Kathmandu Valley that includes: Kathmandu Durbar Square, Swayambhunath Temple, Boudhanath Stupa and Pasupatinath Temple. Overnight at hotel, breakfast included.

Day 03 - Fly to Lukla and trek to Phakding (2652m/8699ft) Duration: 3 hours

Early morning transfer to the airport for Lukla flight. The flight to Lukla is a lifetime experience in itself. The airfield is at high evaluation and the difference between the two ends of the runway is about an exceptional 60 meters only. Trek to Phakding with an arresting, green landscape with the view of Kusum Kangraru. Overnight at guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

Day 04 - Trek to Namche Bazaar (3440m/11283ft) Duration: 6 hrs

We follow the Dudh Koshi, ascending through Himalayan pine and cedar forests, to the celebrated village of Namche Bazaar. The village of Namche is a historic trading post where Nepalese and Tibetan traders exchange salt, dried meat and textiles.

Besides being a splendid destination to shop for traditional crafts, Namche remains the central trading post in the Khumbu that attracts Himalayan and lowland merchants.

You will spend two days at Namche for acclimatization, visit local markets and spend time with your team. On the hike we capture our first glimpses of Everest and neighboring peaks. Overnight at guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

Day 05 - Namche Bazar - Everest View Hotel – Namche, 4-5 hrs

This day is especially sectioned for acclimatization. We will hike to Syangboche Airport (3700m), supposed to be the highest airport in the world, then continue climbing to Everest View Hotel for great panoramic views of the Everest, Lhotse, Amadablam, Tawache etc. On the way back, we visit Sherpa Culture Museum and Everest Photo Gallery. Overnight at guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

Day 06 - Trek to Tengboche (3860m/12660ft) Duration: 6-7 hrs

The uniform and easy trail leads us towards the view of Mount Everest, descending deep into the Dudh Koshi Valley at Pungki Thanka and from this point, it ascends the right flank of the Dudh Koshi valley to Tengboche Monastery (3860m). It is the spiritual center of the Khumbu.

The climb is lengthy, but is more than adequately compensated by gorgeous views of Mount Amadablam and on a clear day, views of Mt. Everest and its surrounding peaks. Overnight at guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

Day 07 - Trek to Dingboche (4410m/14464ft) Duration: 4-5 hrs

Descend through a beautiful forest, cross the Imja Khola and trek through the village of Pangboche (3900m); perhaps today is the most interesting trekking because you will not lose altitude like on other days and you will enjoy views of Mt. Amadablam, Mt. Lhotse & other peaks; the route continues through pastures to Dingboche, known as the ‘summer valley’. Overnight at guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

Day 08 - Hike to Nagerjun (5100m/16728ft) and return Dingboche, 5-6 hrs

This would be your second acclimatization day that requires about 5-6 hours of trekking to an altitude of 5100m. After breakfast, you ascend Nagerjun (5100m), a hill located on the flanks of the Chhukung valley directly above Dingboche.

The main aim is to climb high and sleep low. The foot path becomes steep at times, resulting in a physically strenuous day. Ascending the hill could take up to 5 hours at altitude. From this altitude there are good views of Lobuche East (6119m), Lobuche West (6145m), Taboche Peak (6367m), Thamserku (6608m), Kangtega (6685m) and Ama Dablam (6856m).

On a clear day, you could even see Makalu, the world’s fifth highest mountain, including great views of the Pheriche Valley. After a short rest, you start the descent back to Dingboche and the walk at altitude takes about 2 hours.

After lunch, take a well deserved rest, as afternoon temperatures could drop rapidly as the sun sets over the mountain tops. You will also spend a second night in Dingboche. Overnight at guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

Day 09 - Trek to Thukla (4620m/15153ft) Duration: 3 - 4 hrs

Our path follows the river up, and at the end of the valley is the rocky end of a glacier, a natural dam for a crystal blue glacial lake. The path turns right and meets with the river. We cross a bridge over the river and heads to the village of Thukla. Overnight at a guesthouse, breakfast, lunch, dinner included

Day 10 - Trek to Lobuche (4910m/16105ft) Duration: 3-4 hrs

Trek along a broad valley floor to Dughla, passing the Trekkers Aid Post at Pheriche (4240 m). This trek is staffed by western volunteer doctors and supported by the Himalayan Rescue Association, which offers treatment and consultation to trekkers.

Continue up the valley, gaining altitude. We come out of the valley to descend to the yak pastures of Lobuche. Overnight at guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

Day 11 - Trek to Gorekshep (5180m/16994ft) Duration: 3-4 hrs

After a short climb through meadows, look down on the Khumbu Glacier. Straight ahead is Kalapattar – the best vantage point to view the entire south face of Mt. Everest and the surrounding peaks. Trek to Gorekshep and prepare for tomorrow’s Everest Base Camp Expedition at 5400 meters. Overnight at guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

Day 12 - Hike to Everest Base Camp (5364m/17594ft) and return Gorekshep (5181m/16994ft) Duration: 6-7 hrs

This morning commences with your Mount Everest Base Camp destination through a scree trail. There is not much elevation gain, but there are a lot of ups and downs and, combined with altitude, this can be a tiring portion- but the journey is worth it.

After approximately 3 hrs of hiking you will arrive at Base Camp and enjoy views of the Khumbu Glacier and icefall, where Everest expeditions begin. Overnight at guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

Day 13 - Hiking to Kalapattar (5545m/18188ft) - Gorekshep - Pheriche (4210m/13809ft) Duration: 6-7 hrs

The day starts with a hike up to Kalapattar (5545m), the best viewpoint to witness Mt. Everest and the spectacular Himalayan range. Then trek back to Gorekshep for hot breakfast and then descend to Pheriche. Overnight at guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

Day 14 - Trek to Phorste (3680m/1270ft) Duration: 5-6 hrs

Today we trek down to Phortse. Though you are trekking back down, you may have to face some decent uphill. Overnight at guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

Day 15 - Trek to Namche (3440m/11283ft) Duration: 4-5 hrs

We descend Phorste Thanka, complete steep climb to Mong-la Danda, short climb down to Kyangjuma then gentle trail to Namche. Overnight at guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

Roselyn Plummer , 54 St Helier Drive Sorrento Western Australia 6020

My family of six decided to vacation in Nepal in the beginning of spring this year and Nepal Hiking Team was recommended to us by a friend who had done the Everest Base Camp with the agency before. It was the best vacation for us because we were given easy routes during the trek. The best thing about the service was that our guides, Arun and Paban, were both very co-operative and helped along each and every step of the way for my family. During the hikes, we had the freedom of adjusting our paces and we were provided with good services at the guesthouses and the lodges as well. It was a great way to spend time with the family and everyone really enjoyed the views of the Himalayas as well. The kids enjoyed the hikes and the scenery of the Everest, while me and my wife loved how everything was taking place in a very problem-free manner. Luckily, none of got sick during the journey and the whole time was spent with just us enjoying the moments. It was an exemplary holiday for my family and we made good friends with our guides. Our thanks also goes to our porters as well who hauled our heavy bags across the mountains. Mr. Ganga also met us at the airport for the welcome and the goodbye. We were complimented with a delicious goodbye celebration dinner at the end of the trip, which was very considerate of the agency. We are grateful to Nepal Hiking Team, to our guides, our porters and everybody who were involved in the trip. We would definitely be choosing NHT again if we decide to have another vacation in Nepal in the future!
