    Message Regarding flight to/from Lukla

    During the peak trekking season (March-May and September-November ), all the Lukla flights will be held via Manthali Airport in Ramechhap due to the traffic congestion at Tribhuvan International Airport.

    Trip Overview

    Do you want to embark on a trek where you'll cross two high passes? If so, you can join us for the Everest Base Camp with Cho La and Renjo La Pass. This journey is embarked on by hikers from all around the world, which makes it enriching.

    The Everest Base Camp with Cho La and Renjo La Pass Trek consists of 21 days and is suitable for those who want to get the most out of the Khumbu region trek. In these 21 days, you'll walk along rocky paths, cross high passes, hike to the highest hiking points, and many more.

    Route Overview

    The trek begins upon your arrival at the Tribhuvan International Airport.

    Then, we'll organize a sightseeing tour of the UNESCO sites of Kathmandu. The other day, you'll catch a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. The hike will begin from Lukla to Phakding. From Phakding, you'll walk across several villages, cross high bridges, and reach Namche Bazaar. Here you'll be spending a day hiking to Everest View Hotel to acclimatize your body at this altitude. From Everest View Hotel, you'll get to witness the 360 panoramic views of Mt Everest, Nuptse, Thamserku, Tawache, and much more.

    Then, you'll hike from Namche Bazaar and cross Tengboche and Dingboche. At Dingboche, you'll spend another day for acclimatization purposes. Then, the hike will begin again from Dingboche to Lobuche, then to Everest Base Camp. After exploring EBC, you'll return to Gorakshep and spend the day there. Then, you'll hike to Kala Patthar to catch the sunrise and the closest view of Mount Everest.

    Best Time

    Be it a trek or a city tour; favorable weather conditions greatly influence the overall trip. We want your trek to be an enjoyable one where you can get the best out of your journey.

    According to research, the ideal time for the trek is in the spring and autumn season.

    In the springtime ( March-May), the weather remains warm and clear. It will be perfect for those who want to catch clear glimpses of the snow-capped mountains, as the visibility will be clear.

    In the autumn season( October-November), the monsoon season will be coming to an end with the skies clearing out. The temperature will be moderate, which will be pleasant for hikers.

    Having said that, the Everest Base Camp with Cho La and Renjo La Pass will not be possible during the winter season ( December-February). There will be heavy snowfall on these routes, which will block the hiking paths. We don't recommend trekking during this season.

    Is this trek for beginners?

    The trek is graded as moderate to strenuous in terms of difficulty. You'll reach the maximum altitude in Kala Patthar (5545m ), a high altitude level. Nevertheless, a hiker starting from scratch can join this trek if the proper preparations are made.

    A good physical fitness level should be maintained to prepare for this trek. This means the hiker must exercise regularly and include cardio exercises in their daily routine. You also need to take heed of your walking pace and breathing pattern.

    In a nutshell, this trek is both for beginners and experienced hikers. You'll be walking through steep uphill, downhill, and rocky paths, but our guides will be there with you, so you need not worry.

      • Unforgettable trekking at the world's tallest Himal

        I have always wanted to visit Nepal. It is a beautiful country and the Himalayas have always called out to my yearning heart. Recently, I finally had the chance to visit it. I went with Nepal Hiking Team as they seemed the most trust-worthy. As I first interacted with Balaram, the office head, I knew that I would be in good hands. During the initial correspondence, my queries were answered with ample information. It left me satisfied and in a good mindset for the trekking that I was about to do.

        Then, when it was time to finally board my flight to Nepal, I was ecstatic! As I landed, as told, my guide- Hari Sharan, was there, standing with a placard of my name and the agency's name. A warm greeting ensued, where I was welcomed with a flower garland. It was a good first impression, and throughout the journey, Hari would make sure that I was enjoying my time.

        Visiting Lukla after Kathmandu's bustling vibrancy was a nice relief. I was escorted from my hotel to the airport with Hari in an efficient way, no delays or troubles. From Lukla, the trek finally began! Hari arranged for a porter for me. With him, my trekking journey began with a comfortably-paced hike through the villages. He was my friend for the journey, as well as my guide. With Hari, everything was a breeze. All I had to do was enjoy my trek as everything else was taken care of. He arranged my guesthouses and the food. If I needed anything, Hari would arrange for it. I was also in constant contact with the office in Kathmandu as well; they asked me frequently if I was having a good time and offered their immediate services in case anything happened. That was immensely reassuring to know that I had my back with my agency.

        Nepal Hiking team definitely deserves all of the best praises that it gets. Not only is it an extremely well-maintained customer service oriented company, it they genuinely do deliver in their promise of a good trekking experience. If I ever return to Nepal again, they are my number choice.
