  • Detail Itinerary
    • Day 01 Fly to lukla(2840m) and trek to Phakding(2,610)

      A spectacular flight and hair rising landing on a steep mountain runway bring us to the start of our trek at the village of Lukla (2850m). After meeting our crew, we head up the Dudh Kosi Valley on a well-marked trail to our first camp near the river at Phakding.

       

    • Day 02 Phakding to Namche(3440m)

      From Phakding, we cross and re-cross the river on high suspension bridges. Beyond Monjo is the entrance to the Sagarmatha National Park, which was created in order to protect and preserve this fragile mountain environment. We then ascend quite steeply to Namche and along the way, if the weather is clear, catch a first glimpse of Mt Everest in the distance. Namche is the main trading village in the Khumbu and has a busy Saturday market-a meeting place for the Hindu traders from the lowlands and the Tibetan yak caravans that have crossed the glaciated Nangpa La. Camp is near the bazaar at Namche

       

    • Day 03 Rest day in Namche(3440m.)

      Namche is tucked between two ridges amidst the giant peaks of the Khumbu and has an abundance of lodges, teashops and souvenir shops as well as a magnificent outlook. It is an ideal place to spend a rest day, acclimatizing to the new altitude before heading off towards Tengboche. Options for acclimatization walks include a visit to Khunde hospital which was set up by Sir Edmund Hillary, or a one hour walk up to the Everest view hotel above Namche for the sunset view of Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Lhotse, and Everest. There are also good views from the national park center and museum just above the town.

       

    • Day 04 Namche to Tengboche(3,860m)

      From Namche, the trail contours around the side of the valley, high above the Dudh Kosi. Now we get our first really good views of the great peaks of the Khumbu including Mt Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, and Ama Dablam. Passing by several villages and numerous teashops, we descend steeply to a bridge over the river at Phunki Tenga. The village is an excellent lunch spot, and here we can rest before making the steep climb to Tengboche. Although tiring, the hike up the zigzag path has numerous distractions, with rhododendron bushes, beautiful birds and superb mountain scenery. Tengboche is famous for its legendary monastery, the largest in the Khumbu. We camp near the monastery with Everest, Lhotse and Ama Dablam framed in the doorway of the tent.

       

    • Day 05 Tengboche to Pheriche(42,250m)

      We descend steeply through a forest, cross the Imja Khola and climb steadily to the village of Pangboche. This is directly opposite Ama Dablam [6856m], and has exceptional views of the mountain, with the gompa, Mani walls and scattered pine trees in the foreground. A further two hours walk brings us to Pheriche.

       

    • Day 06 Rest day in Pheriche(4,250m)

      A day to rest and acclimatize and a chance to wander up for about 3 hours of accent to Nangkar Tshang hill at 5100 m overlooking Dingboche, Imja valley down below and the best view of the 4th & 5th highest mountain of the world, Mt. Lhotse and Mt Makalu respectively along with Ama Dablam, Chola Tse, Island Peak, Baruntse and many more.

       

    • Day 07 Pheriche to lobuche(4,910m)

      We continue up the wide valley beneath the impressive peaks of Cholatse and Tawache on the left. We then turn right and climb more steeply towards the foot of the Khumbu Glacier. The teahouse at Duglha is a good spot to have lunch before zigzagging up through the boulders of the glacier's terminal moraine. At the top of this climb, there are many stone cairns, built as memorials to the many Sherpas who have died while climbing Mt Everest. The path then climbs gently along the glacier, to eventually reach the cluster of houses at Lobuche.

       

    • Day 08 Lobuche to Gorakshep(5,280m)

      To reach our next objective, Kala Pattar, the trail follows the Khumbu Glacier, and offers superb views of the surrounding mountains, especially where the path is forced to rise to cross a tributary glacier. We stop for lunch at our camping place for the night, Gorakshep. Later in the afternoon, when the sunset colors begin to appear on Everest, we make our way to the top of one of the finest viewpoints in the Everest region, Kala Pattar (5554m). As the light begins to fade we stroll back to our camp at Gorak Shep and have an early night in preparation for our trek to Everest Base Camp the following day.

       

    • Day 09 Gorakshep to Everest Base Camp, back to Lobuche(4,910m)

      To reach Everest Base Camp, a very early start is required, as it takes several hours on a trail that weaves its way through ice pinnacles and past the crevasses of the Khumbu Glacier. On the return leg, we can take a higher route to get a spectacular view of the Khumbu icefall and the route to the South Col. We return to Lobuche to camp for the night.

       

    • Day 10 Lobuche to chukhung(4,730m)

      We head back down today, through Thukla, to the summer village of Dingboche, where the houses are dotted about in the fields. Now, we have an easy walk for about 2 hours, climbing up gradually to the small settlement of Chukhung. Along the way, we have great views of Island Peak and the challenge that awaits us.

       

    • Day 11 Chukhung to Island Peak Base Camp(4,970m)

      Another easy day, the trail crosses the river and follows the valley for approx 3 hours, passing beneath the magnificent south face of Lhotse. Base camp is by the side of the Imja glacier, below steep grassy slopes that mark the start of the climb on Island Peak.

       

    • Day 12 Summit day Island peak, back to Chukhung(4,730m)

      Crossing the gully above the camp the trail makes a climb for another hour to a narrow ridge, leading onto the glacier. Here it is time to rope-up and put on our crampons as the most interesting part of the climb begins with the glacier crossing. The steep snow slope that leads onto the summit ridge follows this. This ridge is wonderfully airy and on reaching the summit we have stunning close-up views of the south face of Lhotse looming over us whilst in the other direction, there are more dramatic mountain views. We descend along the same route, down to base camp, continuing down to Chhukum. Overnight at Chhukum.

       

    • Day 13 Chukung to Pangbouche(3,930m)

      After descending along the trail to Chukhung, we continue on to Dingboche for lunch. It is then another couple of hours to the lovely village of Pangboche where we' will camp for the night.

       

    • Day 14 Pangbouche to Namche(3,440m)

       

      Today we follow the river and, after crossing it, climb back up through birch and rhododendron forests to Tengboche. Kwangde, Tawache, Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Kantega and Thamserku are just a few of the Himalayan giants to be seen. From Tengboche, we descend to the bridge over the Dudh Kosi at Phunki Tenga, where there are water driven prayer wheels, before making our way back to Namche.

       

    • Day 15 Namche to lukla(2,860m)

      Our final day's trekking follows the Dudh Koshi back down to Lukla. This last evening in the mountains is an ideal opportunity for a farewell party with the Sherpa guides and porters, where we can sample some Chhyang, try Sherpa dancing and look back on a memorable trekking experience

       

    • Day 16 Fly to Katmandu(1,325m)

      We pack up early and head for the airstrip for the flight back to Katmandu.
