Landing in the city of temples you will be delighted. We will pick you up and take you to the hotel where you can relax yourself. About the discussion of the tour, we will do it at the dinner table.
How wonderful is it to wake up in the architectural paradise. For the sightseeing tour, you will be able to visit three to four cultural heritages and save other sites for another sightseeing tour. Therefore it is up to you to choose which site you prefer to visit first.
There's no other way of putting it: the flight to Lukla is hair-raising indeed, but as you step down from the plane, you'll be taking your first monumental step on the path to Everest Base Camp. After reaching Lukla you’ll hike towards the village of Phakding where you’ll spend the night.
This morning right after an early breakfast, your trek truly begins. On the path from Phakding, you’ll cross rivers by suspension bridges. The villages along the way will set the pace and before you know it you'll have reached the entrance to Sagarmatha National Park. The trail continues rising sharply to reach Namche bazaar. Here you'll spend the night in a hotel with good facilities.
Acclimatizing is the key to a successful trek. And today you will acclimatize, while trekking in the legendary Namche bazaar, with its restaurants, coffee shops, and pubs. You can visit Khunde Hospital, which was established by Sir Edmund Hillary. Or you can stroll up to the Everest View Hotel above Namche, where you can see the sunset over Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Lhotse, and Everest.
The day begins with an easy walk to Phulki and onwards to Tengboche village, famous for its monastery probably the largest in the Everest region. It is located within the Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here you can see panoramic views that take in the whole range of the Himalayas, including Mt. Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam and Thamserku. You will stay overnight in Tengboche.
Descending the trail, you'll wend your way through lush forests of birch, conifer and rhododendron trees. You’ll reach Pangboche by this downhill path to Debuche crossing the Imja River on the way. Continuing through the Imja Valley and crossing the Lobuche River you'll finally ascend to Dingboche. A bucolic scene awaits you here in this picturesque village with beautiful barley, potato and buckwheat field complete with grazing animals.
Another essential day is spent acclimatizing in Dingboche in preparation for high altitude with its thin air. Today is best spent exploring the village, where you’ll be able to climb a ridge located behind the village to see six of the world’s tallest peaks including Lhotse, Makalu and Cho Oyu. You’ll need your rest for the penultimate day of ascent tomorrow.
The trail will become more and more challenging, as you climb to higher altitudes. We ascend to the steep terminal moraine of the Khumbu Glacier. The trail goes through boulder-strewn slopes as we make our way up Chupki Lhara, a ridge that provides spectacular views. The next part of our adventure brings over craggy mountain terrain to Lobuche, a small settlement with views of Mt. Lobuche, Mt. Pumari and the Nuptse. Overnight in Lobuche.
Every step gets you closer to your destination that begins with a relatively easy trek from Lobuche to Gorakshep. The subsequent, straight trail to Everest Base Camp is more challenging. The up and down route will take you mostly on a glacier path. From here you will get your first sight of Everest Base Camp and then you head back to Gorak Shep after an arduous day. Overnight at Gorak shep.
Kala Patthar is definitely the highlight of this amazing trek. The trek to Kala Patthar begins at daybreak to catch a glimpse of the sunrise over Mt. Everest. The day’s first light will illuminate your spectacular view of Nuptse Nup, Changtse, and Lhotse. Here you'll get your best shots of Everest and its neighboring peaks. Later, you'll head back to Gorak shep for breakfast and down in the direction of Pheriche. Overnight stay at Pheriche.
Here is the turning point of the trek from where you descend back to Namche. The walk from Pheriche back to Tengboche is mainly downhill. You’ll be in Namche, where you’ll spend your last day near the mountains.
Straight after breakfast, you'll trek back to Lukla via Phakding. You’ll revisit all the spectacular views of mountains, monasteries, and villages. This will be your last night on the mountain.....until the next time.
The flights from Lukla to Kathmandu are sometimes canceled due to weather conditions, so we reserve a buffer day in order not to impact on your departure plans.
After being in all those beautiful and peaceful places for all those days, you will be back in the hustle and bustle of the city. This is a free day so you can take the time to do some shopping, traditional massage to relax yourself. Otherwise if you are willing to visit the famous Pashupatinath, then you can join the evening chant.
This day you will join us for a sip of coffee or a friendly lunch according to your schedule. Hoping to meet you soon we will bid you goodbye and see you off to the airport.
