The trek it self passes through an enchanting array of small villages each with their own story and opportunities for photos and fireside chats as you create memories that will last a lifetime.   

Along the path you will have the chance to visit a secluded mountain sanctuary in Thyangboche perched nearly 4 kilometers into the snowy mountain scenery. The stunning views provided a short hike from the monastery make for an unforgettable sunrise experience as you work your way up in the dark of the night making your way down the path under the banner of early morning stars and moonlight.

We will offer some welcome drinks and let you explore through town during the evening.

Day 2 Sightseeing in Kathmandu Valley:
Kathmandu is the historical and cultural heart of Nepal and has been a popular destination for tourists ever since Nepal opened its mysterious doors to visitors. The city presents a wonderful mix of Hindu, Tibetan, Buddhist and Western influence in the Valley. The neighboring cities of Patan and Bhaktapur provide immense historical, cultural and religious significance. There will be a half day guided tour to the infamous Hindu shrine of Pashupatinath, the largest Buddhist stupa in Nepal Boudhanath, the 15th century palace of 55 windows and Swoyambhunath “the monkey temple”.

Day 3 Flight to Lukla - Trek to Phakding [2656m]:
The flight to Lukla lands on a steep mountain runway and brings us to the start of our trek at the village of Lukla [2850m]. After meeting the crew, we head up the Dudh Koshi Valley on a well-marked trail and then stay overnight in the town of Phakding.


Day 4 Trek to Namche [3450m]:
From Phakding, we cross and re-cross the river over an assortment of high suspension bridges. Beyond Monjo is the entrance to the Sagarmatha National Park which was established to protect and preserve the fragile mountain environment. We then take a steep hike to Namche. If the weather is clear, we get the first glimpse of Mt Everest. Namche is the main trading village in the Khumbu region and boasts a lively Saturday market serving as a meeting place for the Hindu traders from the lowlands and the Tibetan yak caravans that have crossed the glaciated Nangpa La.


Day 5 Rest day in Namche:
Namche is tucked away between two ridges amidst the giant peaks of the Khumbu region and has an abundance of lodges, teashops and souvenir shops. It is an ideal place to spend a day while acclimating to the new altitude to prevent any health problems before heading off towards Tengboche. To acclimatize, you can visit either Khunde Hospital established by Sir Edmund Hillary or take a one hour walk up to the Everest View Hotel above Namche for the sunset view of Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Lhotse and Everest. There are other excellent vantage points from the National Park Centre and Museum just above the town.


Day 6 Trek to Tengboche [3867m]:
From Namche, the trail contours to the side of the valley, high above the Dudh Kosi. We get our first really good views of the great peaks of the Khumbu including Mt Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and Ama Dablam. After passing several villages and numerous teashops, we descend steeply to a bridge over the river at Phunki Tenga. The village is an ideal stopover for lunch where we can rest before making the steep climb to Tengboche. Although the hike up the zigzag path is tiring, it presents us with many beautiful sights of rhododendron bushes with beautiful birds and superb mountain scenery. Tengboche is famous for its legendary monastery, the largest in the Khumbu region. A spectacular panorama of Everest, Lhotse and Ama Dablam waits upon arrival at the campsite.

Day 09 Trek to Lobuche [4930m]:
We continue up the wide valley beneath the impressive peaks of Cholatse and Tawache. We then turn right and begin a steep climb towards the foot of the Khumbu Glacier. The teahouse at Duglha will provide a good spot to rest and have lunch. The trail continues to zigzag up through the boulders of the glacier's terminal moraine. At the top of this climb there are many stone Cairns, built as memorials to the many Sherpas who lost their lives climbing Mt Everest. The path then climbs gently along the glacier, to eventually reach the cluster of houses at Lobuche.


Day 10 Trek to Gorak Shep [5184m]:
To reach our next stop, Kala Pattar, we continue on the Khumbu Glacier. The trail offers superb views of the surrounding mountains, especially where the path is forced to rise to cross a tributary glacier. We stop for lunch at at Gorak Shep and enjoy the views. Later in the afternoon, we make our way to the top of one of the finest viewpoints in the Everest region, Kala Pattar [5554m].

Day 11 Trek to Everest Base Camp [5357m]:
A very early start is required to reach the Everest Base Camp. It takes several hours as the trail weaves its way through ice pinnacles and past the crevasses of the Khumbu Glacier. On the return leg, we can take a higher route to get a spectacular view of the Khumbu icefall and the route to the South Col. We return to either Gorak Shep or Lobuche.

Day 12 Trek to Pangboche [3985m]:
Today’s trek is mostly downhill as we retrace our steps to Duglha and descend to Pheriche, we will arrive at The Himalayan Rescue Association that serves as a trekker’s aid post makes for an interesting visit.
