Accommodation

During this safari, you will be staying at a star level hotel in Kathmandu with a bed and breakfast plan on twin bed sharing. Comfortable tea house accommodations will also be arranged for you while you are on the mountain trek. However, while you are trekking in Nepal, the accommodation will be basic with limited options. The team will provide you with a private room where possible.

The twin bed sharing basis will come with a shared bathroom. You are advised to use your own sleeping bag rather than renting. You will not always have access to a hot shower. Lodges often charge at an extra cost, mostly 200 to 1,000 NPR, depending upon the altitude and places, for a bucket of hot water which can then be mixed with the cold water to wash with. It is important to understand that when you are trekking you will be away from your comfort home and civilization.

As you know, trekking is an adventure travel in a remote area! Despite the lack of facilities, the lodges are certainly a piece of heaven. Most are blessed with spectacular views, good harmony family environment, great hospitality, and insight into the daily life of the Himalayan people.

  • Nights one, two, and 15 will be spent in the vibrant Kathmandu.
  • You will head to Phakding on night three.
  • Get cozy in Namche Bazaar on nights four and 13.

Early in the morning, you will fly from Kathmandu to Lukla, traveling for 30 to 40 minutes. Then, you will make the final preparations for the trek. From Lukla, you will pass Chaurikharka village and make a descent towards the Ghat with an altitude of 2,530 meters. The trail will follow the bank of the Dudh Koshi River.

To assist acclimatization, the first-day trek is only three to four hours but if people are still interested to do more activities, they will have the opportunity to go on a side trip to the monastery around in Phakding. You will stay overnight at a lodge.

While watching the spectacular view of mountains, the trail will lead you in Khumjung Valley where you can see Hillary School, an ancient monastery with a yeti skull, and Kunde Hospital. You will then return to Namche. If you are still willing to go, you can visit the mountaineering museum and visit the Sagarmatha Pollution Control Committee (SPCC) in Namche Bazaar.

Day 6: Namche Bazaar to Tengboche (3,867 meters - 5 to 6 hours)

After breakfast, you will start the trek with a pleasant walk on a trail through the forest with magnificent views of mountains until Kenjoma where the trail will join from Khumjung. After passing the small settlement, Sanasa, the trail will drop towards Phunki Tenga (3,250 meters). Then, it will climb steeply through the forests of the Tengboche monastery, situated at 3,867 meters. The view from there is rightly deemed to be one of the world’s most magnificent.

Kwangde, Tawachee, Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse Ama Dablam, Kantega, and Thamserku provide a stimulating panorama of Himalayan view. Every early morning and evening, there is a praying ceremony at the monastery. You may participate in that event. The monastery was established in 1916 by Gulu Lama and was renovated after being destroyed by a fire.

At the entrance of the gate, you can see a footprint on the stone. The locals believe that it is the footprint of Lama Sangwa Dorje from the 1700s. You will have a day hike to Hamugon Peak (4,560 meters) and stay overnight in Tyangboche.

Day 7: Tengboche to Dingboche (4,300 meters - 5 to 6 hours)

After breakfast, the trail will descend down from Tengboche, through the rhododendron forest to Dingboche. Crossing a bridge over the raging Imja Khola River, the trail for Dingboche will follow the climbing route of Island peak and Pokalde peak.

Day 8: Acclimatization day in Dingboche

On that day, you may have a full day’s rest but there are also some places where you can go for a day hike up to Chhukung (4,730 meters) for acclimatization (point of climbing for the famous Island peak) or climb up to Nagarjuna Peak which offers views of Imja Tse Valley with Dingboche village and Mount Makalu (8,463 meters), Ama Dablam, Island peak, and more. You will stay in Dingboche overnight.

Day 9: Dingboche to Lobuche (4,930 meters - 5 to 6 hours)

After your complete acclimatization, the trail will gradually climb up until Dughla, offering stunning views of Tawachee and Cholatse. You will climb from Dughla trail directly up to the Khumbu Glacier before reaching the village of Lobuche. In that stage, the effects of the altitude will be kicking in and you can expect colder nights.

Day 10: Lobuche to Gorakshep (5,140 meters - 3 hours) and Everest Base Camp (5,360 meters - 2 to 3 hours)

After breakfast, the trek will continue to gently climb and at some point, you will directly ascend to a nearby glacier. The trail going to Gorakshep is rocky and windy but it offers good views of Mount Pumori and beautiful views of the Everest Base Camp. After lunch, you will prepare yourselves for the day's adventure to the targeted destination. You will continue the trek towards the Everest Base Camp and to the Khumbu Icefall. However, the path from there can be misleading so make sure to follow the lead Sherpa.

Every year, the trail changes due to the movements of the glacier. The walk will be quite strenuous due to the high altitude and thin air. The walk will pass over rocky dunes and moraine and streams until you reach the base camp. If you are trekking during the high expedition, the temperature will have fallen like in the city. It will take two to three hours to get to the base camp and after a grand time there, you will go back over the journey to Gorekshep for the overnight at the lodge.

Day 11: Gorakshep to Kala Patthar (5,550 meters - 2 hours) and stroll back to Pheriche (4,240 meters - 5 to 6 hours)

Very early in the morning, you will have to climb up two hours to Kala Patthar for a 360-degree view of the mountain peaks. Upon reaching the top, you will feel joyful as you achieve the moment that you have been dreaming of since the beginning of your journey. A small rocky peak, “Kala Patthar,” will offer you beyond imagination views. The panoramic view from the spot is something to cherish and you will feel it is worth the hard climb up there to feel on the top of the world.

You can also see the Everest Base Camp down below on the moraine of the Khumbu glacier and many mountainous sceneries such as Pumori (7,145 meters), Lingtren (6,695 meters), Khumbutse (6,623 meters), Changtse (7,550 meters), Nuptse (7,879 meters), and even Everest itself. After breakfast in Gorakshep, you will trek down to Dughla then continue staying high above the valley floor on Imja Valley. It is the only place in Khumbu where barley is grown. You will enjoy the scenery and stay overnight at the hotel.

Day 12: Pheriche to Tengboche (3,867 meters - 4 to 5 hours)

On day 12, you will descend to a lower elevation from Pheriche. The walk will be pleasant all the way to Tengboche. You can see very old Sherpa villages and further down to Tengboche is one of the most beautiful places in the Himalayas. The first thing that will come into view is the big monastery or gompa followed by the large field with campsites, teahouses, and lodges beneath the soaring and majestic peaks of Ama Dablam, Everest, Mount Lhotse, and Lhotse Shar towards the northeast.

Day 13: Tengboche to Namche Bazaar (3,430 meters - 4 to 5 hours)

The trail will go down through forest with pine, juniper, rhododendron, and a few magnolia and birch trees. You will never forget the great memory of crossing the suspension bridge over the Dudh Koshi River onwards to the Sanasa and to Namche Bazaar to stay overnight.

Day 14: Namche Bazaar to Lukla (2,800 meters - 6 to 7 hours)

After a long walk, you will have one long journey back to Lukla. You will descend the long way before crossing the bridge and walking further to Monju, finally stopping in Phakding for lunch. You will remind yourselves, again, to enjoy the lush green scenery around. You will pass through the incredible mountain scenery and local Sherpa village until Lukla.
