    Early morning transfer to the airport for Lukla flight. The flight to Lukla is a lifetime experience in itself.

Trek to Phakding with an arresting, green landscape with the view of Kusum Kangraru. Overnight at guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

  • Day 4: 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 5: 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 6: 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 7: 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 8: 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 9: 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

    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.
