Details Itinerary

Upon arrival at Nepal’s heart, the capital known as Kathmandu, via Tribhuwan International Airport, we will welcome you warmly and take you to the hotel where you will stay overnight. We will brief you shortly on your upcoming Trek with us after refreshment. We will also introduce you to your trekking guide and team guide. We will take you on a short visit of local area and one of the most popular local restaurants with delicious Nepalese food, cultural music and ethnic dance, if there is enough time assuming your flight is on time. This will give you a glimpse into the uniqueness of our country. If you arrive late in the evening or even night, there is always the next day.

After breakfast, we will head out for city tour of Kathmandu valley and visit the Durbar Square of Kathmandu, Boudhnath Stupa, Pashupatinath temple, and Swyambhunath Stupa. After the tour is over, we will gather to discuss in brief, the tour itinerary and other information. We will then check clothing and trekking equipment you will require during our travel.

After breakfast, we will head to Tribhuvan International Airport’s domestic terminal. We will manage an early morning flight to Lukla as much as possible. Flying above green snow topped mountains we will reach Tenzing Hillary Airport at Lukla after 40 minutes of flight. Upon our arrival at Lukla airport, we will be greeted warmly by our crew members and after some brief discussion and preparation, we start our travel through the village of Lukla until we reach Phakding. This is a short hike to be prepared for high altitude travel. After reaching Phakding, one can explore local area and visit a nearby monastery. Overnight in Phakding.

After breakfast we will begin our walk via mighty pine forests along Dudh Koshi to Namche Bazaar. On the way we will come across the majestic Mt. Thamserku (6,608m). On clear weather day we may even view snowcapped the almighty Mt. Everest. Our trek will end at the gateway of Mt. Everest, Namche Bazzar. Overnight in Namche Bazaar.

This is a day set aside to prepare for high altitude travel as health experts suggest one should prepare well for uphill trek. We can can roam around Namche bazzar and surrounding villages to experience local Sherpa people and their rich culture, or we can hike up the hill and view the mighty Everest unfolding its beauty. There is a museum nearby for those who prefer to stay active. Overnight in Namche Bazaar.

We will walk along the Everest trail passing through beautiful villages and come across the Dudh Koshi River while also enjoying magnificent views of the Himalayan peaks along the way like Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and Ama Dablam. Our trek will end upon reaching Debuche. We spend night at Debuche.

This day we will hike to a village called Pangboche on our way to Pheriche. Pangboche. It is a scenic village surrounded by Everest to its north, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, and Kangtaiga to the east, the Kongde range to the south and the ImjaTse River flowing through the wide fertile valley. From here, we continue further up towards Pheriche, another beautiful village for an overnight stay.
We will set aside this day again for acclimatization to minimize the chances of any member being affected by AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). We will hike shortly to stay active as well. Overnight in Pheriche.

We will trek to Pangboche while crossing the Dudh Koshi River. This trail will take us to Ama Dablam Base Camp. We will spend the rest of the day for acclimatization. Overnight at Ama Dablam Base Camp.

Our climbing experts will guide and provide training regarding peak climbing and proper ways of handling climbing gear. This training is sure to boost the climber’s confidence and skills. Overnight at Base Camp.

We will start trekking towards Camp 1 which is situated at an altitude of 5,700m (17,400 ft) We will prefer that climber stay at camp I for acclimatization and stay overnight. There are three camps along the way until we reach the summit. The ascent from Base Camp to Camp1 is quite challenging and requires experience and technique. From Camp 1, there are existing fixed lines and only establish new ropes if deemed necessary by guide. Climbing up from Camp 2 to Camp 3, the trail is composed of snow, ice and rocks which might be slippery and loose. The ascent from Camp 3 to the summit is quite easier than earlier climb.
These days are for our trek back to Tengboche, Namche Bazaar and Phakding and then finally to Lukla. Lukla is a small airstrip town and heart of Khumbu region. You will find few restaurants and internet facility at Lukla. Overnight will be in teahouses, lodges or tents. Full board during the trek.
