DETAILed ITINERARY

Day1: Arrival in Kathmandu

Upon arrival, our representative will greet you and transport you to your hotel, where your first permission will be issued. In the evening, you may go to Thamel Street, which is a famous hangout. There are several restaurants, casinos, and shops where you may purchase hiking equipment and accessories.

Day2: From Kathmandu to Lukla to Phakding Trek

After breakfast, we’ll fly to Kathmandu’s Tribhuvan Domestic Airport. We’ll board a plane to Lukla. The flight is 35 minutes long in total. Flying this route will be one of your most memorable experiences.

Day3: From Phakding to Namche Bazaar

We will hike to Namche Bazaar today. Namche is 3,440 metres above sea level. Huge green mountain ranges surround the path. The Dudh Koshi river runs beside the road until it reaches Namche. We’ll eat lunch at Monjo because it’s the final place to acquire food until Namche. The track between Monjo and Namche is a gentle ascent through dense green woodland. Just before Namche, you’ll catch a sight of Everest and Lhotse, albeit it won’t be very distinct. Monjo will be challenging following a segment of the trip, which will take 6 to 7 hours with a moderate difficulty rating. Staying at a Tea House/Mountain Lodge for the night.

Day4: Acclimatization Day

This is an acclimatisation day, and we’ll spend it at Namche Bazaar. It’s a location with everything a person might want. Coffee shops, bars, restaurants, and a variety of other activities are available. You may visit the Namche Museum, which is roughly a 20-minute climb above Namche Bazaar. From here, you get a clear view of Everest and Lhotse. The Namche Bazaar (Market) and Namche Monastery are also worth seeing. Staying at a Tea House/Mountain Lodge for the night.

Day5: From Namche to Tengboche

Tengboche is a tiny valley at 3,860 metres above sea level. It’s one of the most picturesque spots on our entire walk.

After that, we’ll hike to Pheriche and then to the Imja Valley. We will be able to observe the Lobuche River and will cross through it on our way to Dingboche, which will be a tough walk. The hike will take around 5 to 6 hours, and while it will be mostly moderate, there will be two strong inclines. Staying at a Tea House/Mountain Lodge for the night.

Day8: From Dingboche to Lobuche

We will begin our walk today towards Lobuche, which is located next to the Khumbu glacier. As we go to Dughla Pass/ Thukla Pass, the first half of the journey would be challenging.

You’ll get some spectacular views of Mt. Pumori and Mt. Nuptse on your right and left, respectively. From base camp, the Khumbu icefall can be seen plainly. This part of the walk takes us up up and personal with these massive mountains, and it feels like nirvana. To go to Everest Base Camp, we must climb a short distance on the Khumbu glacier. It’s located on a glacier near the Khumbu ice fall, which is easily visible.
