Beginning of the Adventure - Early morning you are transferred to domestic airport for your flight to Lukla which takes approx.35 mins. Lukla airport is the one and only gateway to Khumbu region and it is one of the world-famous airports in the world as the landing is done on the narrow, sleeping runway high above the Dudh Koshi River. Upon arriving at Lukla, the Expedition staffs will make necessary arrangements to start the trek. The trek to Phakding is an easy walk for the first day with the mostly downhill leg. The trek will take you through pastoral lands through several small villages and farms, beautiful stone carved Mani walls & crossing several suspension bridges. Approximately after 4 hours, we reach Phakding village which lies on the bank of Dudh Koshi river where we will be spending our night. Overnight in Local Lodge (BLD)
We continue to trek moving along the banks of Dudh Koshi River and cross the suspension bridge over the majestic river several times to reach the village of Monjo. We then enter Sagarmatha National Park where we may get the glimpse of different wildlife. The trail continues to ascend steeply before arriving in Namche Bazaar, also known as “the Gateway to Everest”. Overnight in Local Lodge (BLD)
“Wellbeing” of the team is our top priority. As we are over 3000 meters, allowing more time for body to acclimatize is recommended so we stop for one more day in Namche. Climb High Sleep Low is our theme for the day. After breakfast we will hike up to Everest View Hotel which offers a stunning panoramic view of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Amadablam etc. We then walk down to Khumjung village to see the famous Hillary School and Kunde Hospital which was built by Sir Edmund Hillary after his first ascent of Mount Everest. After lunch we then hike down to Namche for the night stop. Overnight in Local Lodge (BLD)
DAY 05: TREK TO TENGBOCHE (4360M) – 5/6 HRS TREK. After breakfast, we make a short detour to National Park HQ and Sherpa museum before heading out to Tyangboche. We trek to Tengboche keeping Mt Thamserku to our East and upper Khumbu valley to the North. With an amazing view of the mountain before us, we pass through flat and forested trail filled with colorful rhododendrons, oaks, and pines down to the river before the climb begins. Tengboche lies on top of the ridge with a beautiful monastery and scenic up-close view of mighty peaks. Overnight in Local Lodge (BLD)
The day begins with amazing golden rays over Everest at sunrise on a good day. Leaving behind Tengboche, we head towards Dingboche via Debuche, Pangboche and Shomare villages. We ascend to the village of Pangboche passing through Rhododendron Forest, thousands of Mani stones & Chortens. Dingboche is a quaint village inhabited by Sherpa people which offers a stunning view of Lhotse South Face (8414m), Island Peak (6189m), and Ama Dablam North Ridge (6856m). Overnight in Local Lodge (BLD)
We have just hit a little over 4000 meters and is a perfect location to acquaint our body to altitude to ensure that we are not moving too hard / too fast. “Altitude and attitude must go hand in hand”. Keeping it in mind, remaining day is a leisure day at your disposal. Overnight in Local Lodge (BLD)
A gentle climb over the ridge opens up to a beautiful valley towards Lobuche. We will stop in Thukla for lunch before climbing to the mountaineer memorial site where great mountaineers are honored and remembered for their love for the mountains. Walking along the moraine of Khumbu glacier, we head into the small village of Lobuche. Overnight in Local Lodge (BLD)
Long day ahead. After breakfast, we start our trek towards Gorakshep 5140m crossing over rocky moraine enjoying great views along the way. Sheer steep mountain considered challenging by many – Mt. Pumori dominates the scene while we approach closer to Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse and the Khumbu Icefall. As you walk across the rocks towards the many prayer flags that mark the spot, you will arrive at Everest Base Camp. During the expedition season in Spring, many of the groups are settled here in their respective camps awaiting their climb to the highest mountain in the world. It will take approximately 2.5 hours to reach Everest Base Camp from Gorakshep. After taking photographs and enjoying the moment, we head back towards Gorakshep for the overnight. Overnight in Local Lodge (BLD)
Early morning, we head towards Kalapathar to enjoy the mesmerizing Sunrise view. It is a fairly tiring walk up there unless you are well acclimatized.
