Our adventure starts with a short flight to Lukla, including breathtaking views of the Himalaya region from the air, and a while-knuckle landing on Lukla's mountain runway. We'll meet the rest of our crew at Lukla, and begin hiking up the Dudh Koshi valley on the way to Phakding. Overnight at Teahouse/Lodge

We’ll have breakfast in Phakding before gearing up for the trek to Namche Bazaar, the biggest sherpa village in Nepal. Our trail takes us first over the Dudhkoshi River via a long suspension bridge, and then through a beautiful pine forest to Monjo, about two hours away. Soon thereafter, we will approach the entrance to Sagarmatha National Park for a brief permit check and then descend to Dudh Kosi River (spotting Mani stones along the way!) en route to Jorsale. Lunch will be served here, and then it’s uphill to Namche. Our path along the riverbank is flanked by two crossings, one of which is the Hillary Suspension Bridge. It’s a tough climb up the hill to our resting place, but you’ll be rewarded in Namche Bazaar with your first glimpse of Everest in its majesty. Overnight at Teahouse/Lodge

At this point, we take a well-deserved break! Today will be spent resting and allowing our bodies to become acclimatized to the lofty altitude. There’s an optional 2 hour hike to Everest View Point, an uphill walk that will help speed acclimatization. Otherwise, spend the day exploring Namche Bazaar. Check out the Sherpa museum for an overview of the Sherpa culture and history of mountaineering. On Saturdays, the Hatt Bazaar is open for trading and an intimate look at the locals’ marketplace. It is part of the larger Namche Bazaar, a shopping hub filled with all manner of trekking and mountaineering clothing and equipment. Overnight at Teahouse/Lodge

We'll continue to follow the valley above the Dudh Koshi, and be treated to amazing views of Everest, as well as Lhotse, Nuptse and Ama Dablam along the way. We'll cross another high bridge at the village of Phunki Tenga, where we will stop for lunch. After a small rest, we have a steep climb to Tengboche, the site of the largest gompa (Buddhist monastery) in the region. Overnight at Teahouse/Lodge

Our trek today kicks off with a walk through the rhododendron forest to Deboche followed by a bridge over the raging Imja Khol River. We’ll pass the valley wall and then traverse the plains to Pangboche village, the biggest settlement of Sherpas in the region. Enjoy a great opportunity to observe a typical Sherpa village and have lunch with the locals! The intrepid can brave a brief hike to the Pangboche monastery, one of the oldest in the area. Our afternoon trek will be a difficult one, as the landscape gives way to dry; deserted mountains and we hike towards Dingboche. Overnight at Teahouse/Lodge

The trail climbs steeply out of Dingboche past a chorten and ascends the valley gradually to Dugla at the end of the terminal moraine of the Khumbu Glacier. From here we have a short, steep climb up to Chukpo Lari, a beautiful, yet poignant place where there is a line of memorials in tribute to the climbers who have died on Everest and from where we have a beautiful panorama of the peaks lying on the Nepal-Tibet border. The trail then eases off as we follow the valley to Lobuche, a tiny hamlet with a few teahouses. Overnight at Teahouse/Lodge

The trail now leads along the Khumbu Glacier, providing excellent vistas of the Himalayan peaks nearby. Lunch is at Gorak Shep, and then we are back on the trail for a few hours until we reach Everest Base Camp. We will pass lesser glaciers, ice pinnacles, and the sometimes dangerous crevasses of the Khumbu along the way. The return trip to Gorak Shep is made along a higher path overlooking the Khumbu icefall. Overnight at Teahouse/Lodge

We’ll wake before dawn today to trek towards Kala patthar (5545m) for a best views of glorious sunrise over Mt. Everest. The day’s first light will decorate spectacular view of Nuptse, Changtse and Lhotse. This may be of the whole journey, offer most opportune moment to snap amazing pictures of Mount Everest and its neighboring peaks. Afterwards, it’s back to Gorekshep for breakfast and down in the direction of Pheriche, our nighttime stop. Our pace will be a lot brisker as we descend, and the walking is easier going this way. Overnight at Teahouse/Lodge

Today’s trail descends to Debouche, rises through rhododendron forest to Tengboche. A long descent, leads back to Phunki Thenga before the climb to Sanasa (where the trail forked to Gokyo). The walk along the broader trail to Namche Bazaar is easy. Overnight at Teahouse/Lodge

Today is the final descent into Lukla (2840m). On the way, you will trek through the forest of rhododendrons and pine until reaching the Sherpa village. Here, you’ll have the opportunity to say a final goodbye and thanks to the local team staff before moving on to Lukla. Overnight at Teahouse/Lodge

Flights to Kathmandu are generally early in the morning so you may have a breakfast at teahouse early in the morning then check in airport to fly back in Kathmandu (1350m). After arrival in Kathmandu transfer to your Hotel then end your trip. Overnight at Hotel

Lukla get occasional flight delays during the main season. This may cause missing your international flights as well so we recommend you to prepare accordingly.
