  • During the 20-minute flight from Kathmandu to Lukla (9,186ft), we enjoy one of the most beautiful air routes in the world culminating on a hillside surrounded by high mountainous peaks. At Lukla, a gateway destination from where our trek begins, we meet our other crewmembers and begin packing and arranging with them. From Lukla, we start trekking. At one hour’s gradual descent, we will be at a Cheplung village from where we have a glimpse of Mt. Khumbila (5,760m/18,900 ft), a sacred mountain which has never been climbed. From Cheplung, we then gradually descend until we reach Phakding and spend the night. 

  • Day 03 Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3,440m/11,286 ft): 11km, 5 - 6 hours
  • Walking through a beautiful pine forest, we follow the trail north up the valley of Benkar, We then cross DudhKoshi River and go on passing Chumoa to Monjo, the entrance to Everest National Park. Then after crossing a suspension bridge, we pass Jorsale village and walk alongside of the DudhKoshi and BhoteKoshi rivers. A steep ascent brings us to the prime heartland of Zherpa village – Namche Bazaar. On the way if the weather permits, first views of Everest (8,848m), Nuptse (7,879m) and Lhotse (8,511m).

  • Day 04 Acclimatization Day - Namche Bazaar: (3,440m/11,284ft)

Namche Bazaar is the main centre of the Khumbu region and has government offices, ATMs, Internet cafes, shops, restaurants, and a colorful market. Our guides can take us to explore the real charm of Namche Bazaar. Hiking to Zagarmatha National Park rewards trekkers with a sunrise view and the views of Mount Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, AmaDablam, Thamserku, Kongde and so on. 

  • Day 05 Thyangboche (3860m/12,664ft) 9 km.

We walk along a very pleasant trail under the soaring peak of Tamserku and steadily descend to the ImjaKhola and lunch at Phunki where there are a series of water driven prayer wheels. In the afternoon we climb steadily or about 2 hrs. To Thyangboche Monastery and the views are magnificent. The Monastery is literally surrounded by mountains, yaks graze on the small meadow and the monks drone through their prayers. May be one of the most beautiful spots in the world.

  • Day 08 Trek to GorakShep 5140m. Visit Kalapatthar
  • Today we climb Kala Patar. The actual distance is not so far but we take it very slowly to compensate for the altitude stopping at GorakZhep (5288m) for a light lunch. We then take the climb to Kala Pattar (5545m). This is a hard pull but the view from the top surpasses anything you can imagine. All around us flows huge glaciers and the silence of these altitudes is only disturbed by the creeking of the mobile glacier ice. The mountains of Pomori (7145m), Lingtren (6697m) and Khumbutse (6623m) separate us from Tibet, and just over the Lho La pass we see the huge rock of Changtse (7550m) in Tibet itself.
