    Day 02: Kathmandu Sightseeing and Preparation

    On this day we get busy with couple of things; one making the last minute paperwork for your trekking and second, sightseeing some rare UNESCO world heritage sites. Meanwhile, our backend staff will make ready all the permits to take along on the trail. Simultaneously, our guide will help you get acquainted with the country by taking you to different heritage sites. In the evening, you will be briefed about your trek either in your hotel or over the welcome dinner.

    Day 03: Kathmandu – Lukla – Phakding (200m descend – 50m descend)

    The day starts early in order to catch an early morning flight to Lukla. The flights are completely dependent on weather conditions and earlier the flight the better it is. High chances that you will have your breakfast in Lukla and then begin your journey on the trails of Everest base camp. You will make your way through bustling town of Lukla sharing the trails with Yaks and mules. You will only trek for 3-4 hours as a warmup trek for days to come. Overnight in Phakding. Meal plan B,L,D.

    Day 04: Phakding – Namche bazaar (1000m ascent – 100m descend)

    You will embark on the same undulating trail that you had left on the previous day. Immediately outside Phakding keep your eyes open while the trail traverses through the forest of Rhododendron, pine and fir as it is home of some wild habitats. On this day, majority of the trail stays on the banks of raging Dudh Koshi river. On several occasions you will we cross rustic suspension bridge that leads in and out of beautiful Sherpa village and hamlets. From Monjo you will make an entry in the Sagarmatha National park and soon you will be greeted by snow clad Thamserku 6608m. The final ascent to Namche Bazaar through sheer, crisscross and traverses through pine scented trail. This section of the trek is the most difficult section of the day. Overnight in Namche. Meal plan B,L,D.

    Day 05: Rest Day

    This day is set aside for acclimatization. Although it is mentioned as a rest day it is recommended to remain active and ascend to higher ground and fall back in Namche. It is a very good day as well to explore the town its rich Sherpa culture and impeccable short hikes in the periphery. Namche is interesting village or town which has house built in cascading hills and looks like an amphitheatre from a distance. This is the most happening village throughout the Everest base camp trek or even in the region of Everest. On this day we hike to Syngboche airport; one of the high altitude, non commercial air strip. Depending on the weather conditions a short hike to higher ground and back will be done. Overnight in Namche. Meal plan B,L,D.

    Day 06: Namche Bazaar – Tengboche (350m descend – 750m ascent)

    You will walk through a dense forest of Rhododendron and Pine immediately past namche. This is the very community forest where you will hear yak bells zingle made by the grazing yaks. As we make our way on the trails through the forest of Rhododendron we have to keep our eyes open for Himalayan Thar and Musk Deer. The trail is almost gradual uphill but the final 2 hours ascent is tough and probably the most difficult section of the day’s walk. You will see some water charged mani wheels and some amazing views of twin peak, Ama Dablam, Lhotse and even Everest before even reaching the final destination. You arrive at Tengboche which is a wide open grassy flat land where resides Tenboche monastery; famous and one of the largest in the Everest region. Overnight in Tengboche. Meal plan B,L,D.

    Day 07: Tengboche – Dingboche (70 m descent, 580m ascent)

    With every spur you take towards your final destination of the day, the mountains appear closer and get bigger. On this day you will leisurely walk down hill at first and slowly start climbing. The trail is almost uphill all the way to Dingboche from a stream namely Khumbu Khola. Walking almost 3 hours uphill you will reach Dingboche. You will be welcomed to the village by gorgeous view of Island peak 6189m, Peak 38 (7,591m) and Lhotse (8501m). We call it a day here and rest for the night. Meal plan B,L,D.

    Day 08: Rest day

    Dingboche is a lovely place; even is such altitude it receives prolonged sunrise and the wind blows more calmly , compared to that of Periche. Acclimatization is again important at this elevation and will help you to cope up with rapid increase in elevation in days to come. Alike Lukla and although a rest day, you will spend a day in Dingboche hiking to nearby viewpoints or peaks or higher ground and fall back to Dingboche. It is uttermost important to stay active when in dingboche and try avoiding sleeping. You will trek around 400m most likely to Nangkartshang Gompa, an excellent viewpoint for mountains in Everest. Nevertheless, the hiking destination will be decided then and there by the guest and the guide. Overnight in Dingboche. Meal plan B,L,D.

    Day 09: Dingboche – Labuche (500m ascent)

    Every single stem and the mountains look at a stone throw distance or within the reach of your palms. The views of Kantega, Ama Dablam and other mountains will definitely help you forget the pain of walking. The trail in not completely uphill but at times it gets horizontal as well. The terrain of today’s walk is barren and with no or very less vegetation. At one time, you will have to take a utter and nerve wrecking uphill to a memorial that commemorates mountaineer who lost their lives in 2001. This is the most difficult ascend of the day. Further you will ascent all the way to Labuche with the view of soaring Thamserku in front and smell of Rhododendron in the air. .Overnight in Labuche. Meal plan B,L,D.

    Day 10: Labuche – Gorekshep – Kalapatthar/Ebc – Gorakshep and fly to Lukla by Helicopter  (Ascent 650m, descent 385m)

    The trek is going to be slow and very tedious as you will be walking beyond 4000 meters. Most of the days initial trek traverses through the narrow gap between glacier moraine and the mountain. You will make a very small but difficult climb to more technically difficult moraine with the first sighting to Gorakshep. Gorakshep is a temporary hamlet just to serve trekkers trekking to base camp of the Everest. Moreover this place acts like the launching pad for the peak of Kala Patthar. We recommend you to visit Kalapatthar on this day as the sunset view is more beautiful. However, many people prefer Kalapatthar in the morning but it is not recommended due to the ruined view from sunrise behind the Everest. We either trek to Everest base camp or Kalapatthar and trek back to Gorakshep and spend the night. Meal plan B,L,D

    Day 11: Fly to Kathmandu

    We board an early morning flight on the world’s most adventurous before the weather is wrecked. With the views of the beautiful peaks on our right we head towards Kathmandu.
