Tour Plan

Day 1:  Arrival to the Kathmandu.

The representative from the company will pick the guest from the Airport and will drop to the hotel respectively.

Day 2: Kathmandu to Lukla and Trek to Phakding.

Flight to Lukla and Trek to Phakding.

The mountain flight into Lukla is spectacular and the landing an exciting beginning to the trek – one end of the runway is 60m (197ft) higher than the other trekking at high altitudes but the whole experience is simply awe-inspiring.

The mountain flight into Lukla is spectacular and the landing an exciting beginning to the trek – one end of the runway is 60m (197ft) higher than the other.

Day 3: Phakding to Namche.

Spend two nights in Namche acclimatizing for the trek.

Day 4:Namche Bazaar

Acclimatization day allows for an excursion to Thame and Khumjung, the green village or Syangboche. Spend a day in Namche Bazaar acclimatizing to the altitude. There are also treks to the surrounding villages of Thame and Khumjung; these short day walks are designed to give us time to get used to high-altitude trekking. Keep your eyes open -- this is the first opportunity to catch a glimpse of the peak of awesome Mt. Everest, the highest mountain in the world while we visit the National Park Head Quarter. Elevation: 3440m.

Day 5: Namchebazar to Diboche.

Today includes a 6–7 hr trek through woods and rhododendron forests, arriving in Diboche. The route from Namche to Diboche route is unbelievably beautiful – the Dudh Kosi is far below and Thamserku, Kantega, Ama Dablam, Lhotse, and Everest rise in front. Woods, rhododendron forests, mani walls, chorten (stupas), and suspension bridges across the river make this a lovely walk. Elevation: 3876m

Day 6: Diboche to Dingboche.

Trek to Dingboche where we have time to acclimatize.

Stone steps lead down through rhododendrons, birches, and conifers where, due to the hunting ban, almost tame pheasants are regularly seen. At the bottom lies the small village of Deboche and its nunnery. Rising above the tree line, the trail enters alpine meadows of scrub juniper and, in summer, a profusion of wild flowers. From Dingboche, the only place in the region where barley is grown, the mountain views are outstanding. Elevation: 4358 mts

Day 7: Dingboche / Acclimatization Day

This is an acclimatization day. Opt to hike to Chhukung or Nagarzhang Peak.

An acclimatization day here can be used to hike up the Imja Khola to Chhukung or Nagarzhang Peak, a small summer settlement from where stunning views of Island Peak, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, and the fluted ice walls flanking the Amphu Lapcha pass can be seen. These views are one of the highlights of tShe entire trek.

Enjoy some time away from the trek to adjust to the higher altitude. Take it easy, enjoy the scenery, drink plenty of fluids, and prepare for the next day's hiking.

Day 8 :Dingboche – Lobuche 7km

The ascent towards Everest Base Camp continues through Alpine meadows and summer yak pastures towards the end of the moraine of the Khumbu Glacier. At the moraine, there are stone monuments to six Sherpa who died in avalanche, as well as monuments to other climbers. From here, it is a steep, tough climb towards the village of Gorakshep. Continue on towards Lobuche, where the view is straight towards Nuptse and the sunset is truly magnificent. Elevation: 4910m

Pumori, Mt. Mahalangur, Mt. Lingtern, Mt. Khumbutse, Mt. Nuptse, etc. A small ascent would take us to ThangmaRiju from where we perceive 360 degree vista of snowy mountains. Climbing steeply up to the top through the torrent of Changri Glacier, we catch our first glimpse of Kala Patthar, a grey-green knoll beneath the Mt. Pumori. As we reach GorakShep, we will find snow-capped mountains looming all around us including the top of the world - Mt. Everest.Over night Gorakshep.

Day 10: Gorakshep to Everest Base Camp and Trek to Lobuche.
