After landing, our Sherpa crew sort and load our trekking equipment meanwhile we get opportunity to explore Lukla.

The walking is easy many small villages like, chheplung, Thadokoshi goon, Nurning, chhuthaea, Dukdingma (2492m), we reach Phakding.

Day 3: Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3446M)


From Phakding we cross the river and head up the valley. We continue trekking along the river valley and is encapsulated with beautiful blue pine and rhododendron forest that is very incredible in the spring months, when the flowers are in bloom. Vistas of the snow-capped peaks of KusumKanguru (6369m) and Thamserku (6623m) feel majestic as soon as we cross the Dudh Kosi River at Benkar. Lunch en-route at Monjo. After couple of hours and crossing rivers we will reach Namche Bazaar around 6,7 hours.

Day 4: Acclimatization day Namche Bazar (3450M)


Today is the rest day and also a day to acclimatize your body. After breakfast, a variety of options exists. Walk around Namche Bazar observing various shops. We can also do optional hiking to Khumjung and Khunde village from where splendid views of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam and more are visible. You’d better take the opportunity to see both the sunrise and sunset views from the national park headquarters above the village. Perhaps a walk towards Thami (3810m) above the beautiful BhoteKhola River Valley or a visit to the national park headquarters to observe displays of Sherpa lifestyle and culture. You can get information on the park’s flora and fauna and mountaineering. Your guides will offer help walking around.

We ascend steeply at first and then contour high above the valley, enjoying excellent views of Thamserku and AmaDablam (6856m) from the top. About an hour’s walk from PhaunkiTenga, we are now trekking beyond the tree line. Since we are at higher altitudes it is important to take notice of our trek leader’s advice and recommendations regarding rest and fluid intake. Overnight in Tengboche after walking 5,6 hours.

Day 6: Tangbche to Dingboche (4360M)


Short descend to the Deboche. Gently, ascend flat along the ImjaKhola river band. After crossing the suspension bridge we need to ascend to the Pangboche. Our trails is high above the ImjaKhola, passing through several tea houses at Orsho, followed by crossing the ImjaKhola again and old glacial moraines until the settlement of Dingboche appears. Beautiful patchwork of small fields enclosed by stone walls is found which is there to protect crops from cold. Although Everest is hidden behind the Lhotse-Nuptse Ridge, the huge peaks that tower above the eastern end of the valley are ample compensation. After 5,6 hours of trekking we reach Dingboche.

Day 7: Dingoche to Lobuche (4930M)


Ascents to top of small ridge behind the village above the Pheriche valley makes the striking views of Tabuche (6367m) and Cholatse (6335m), as they seem to lean forwards from across the valley in the west. The skyline is dominated by Lobuche Peak (6119m) and the snowfields of the Cho La. The flat walking on wide-open fields makes it easy. Late in the morning we cross the KhumbuKhola at Dughla (4620m) and take a light lunch at the foot of the huge terminal moraines of the Khumbu Glacier flowing off Everest. After several hours, climbing rocky trails to top of moraines is quite difficult. On the crest of the ridge, you pass a line of memorial cairns, memorial or landmark built on behalf the Sherpas and climbers who have died on various Everest expeditions over the last fifty or so years. Pumori (7145m), Lingtren (6697m), Khumbutse (6623m) are seen at the head of the valley, while Everest is hidden behind the towering walls of Nuptse and Lhotse. We follow the valley stream to our lodge at Lobuche, arriving early afternoon after 5,6 hours walking. Today is a tiring day but the fantastic scenery makes it all very worthwhile.

Day 8: Lobuche to GorakShep (5160M)


As the trek to GorakShep is relatively short, we have the opportunity for a leisurely breakfast before beginning the day’s walk From Lobuche. We follow the broad valley that runs parallel to Khumbu Glacier.

Day 9: Gorakhshep to Everest Base Camp trek – Gorakhsep (5160M)


Wake up early in the morning for the trek to Everest Base Camp (5,364 m/17,594 ft.) with a motive to experience the base camp of world’s highest peak.

Day 10: GorakShep to Kala Patar – Pheriche (4270M)


Trek to Kala Patar (5545m) in the early morning to experience breathtaking sunrise views from this point. The ascent is slow and steady because of steepness and the altitude. But the rewards is unimaginable. Patar is the rocky hilltop below Pumori.
