Trip Overview

Trek to Mount Everest Base Camp is one of those trips that make your holiday dreams come true. Hiking on the legendary foothills just below the mighty Everest with breathtaking views of the master peaks can only be found in the Everest Region. This famous trek is known worldwide for its trailblazing routes & the landscapes speak to your senses. On this trip you also peak out at the famous Kala Patthar (5,600m/18,373ft) view point for some grand upfront views of the highest mountain in the world. Everest Base Camp Trek also includes other famous 8 thousand peaks like Mt Lhotse (8,516m /27,940ft), Makalu (8,485m /27,838 ft) & the giant Cho-Oyu (8,201m /26,906ft). The culture in this particular area is of great notebook stuff & interacting with the local folks puts more zest into your adventurous journey as you plod through the khumbu region of Nepal.

Trek to the Everest region
Trek to the Everest region

This legendary trail is a psychological thrill for high & wild hikers who wish the tread the paths where legends walked before on their way to conquer Everest, some did some didn’t but the Everest Base Camp trail keeps those legends alive for most trekkers who head to this region. The trip begins with a stirring mountain flight to Lukla, one of the world’s highest mountains; & as soon as you touch down at that altitude, the rest is history. Your hike takes you to the popular village town of Namche, called the ‘gateway to the Khumb’’ & from there on you walk through quiet monasteries & meet up with the well known Sherpa folks who inhabit this region & their culture is worth noting. On the way, we visit the Sagarmatha National Park, home to some rare fauna & flora, this also where we acclimatize for some time.

We head deep into the Khumbu hiking into forest of rhododendron, birch trees & pine, with colorful villages where we are sincerely welcomed by the Sherpa community. We are pleasantly surprised to come across a hospital based in Khunde and health post at Pheriche that shows this region not only cares for the locals but are also ready to take care of trekkers who have altitude problems. Doctors are always at post for first aid treatment. The trek is arduous but numerous teahouses are found on the trails offering good grub & a cosy bed to shelter from the sometimes harsh climate. Our trek culminates at base camp and then we make a beeline for Namche as we hike back to Lukla to rendezvous for our flight to Kathmandu. We add an extra contingency day for inclement weather that may delay flights. It’s advisable to be pretty fit to undertake this journey; you just need some good hiking exercise before doing this trip. And ‘Glorious Adventure’’ will do the rest to give you an action packed odyssey of a lifetime…

Itinerary

Day1 : Arrival in Kathmandu Airport - (1360m.) After your arrival at Tribhuwan International Airport in medieval and modernized Kathmandu, you will be warmly greeted by our office representative and transfered to the hotel. After check in and some refreshments, our senior sherpa guide will come to meet you and give you a brief orientation about Everest Base Camp Trek. You can then go for a stroll down the street to get familiar with the neighbourhood, have supper and go to bed. This is your first overnight in the valley of temples and cows, probably the most in the world.
Day2 : Kathmandu Valley sightseeing The capital city of Nepal, Kathmandu, being the historical and cultural heart of the country, is a popular destination for tourists, trekkers and other types of adventure seekers. The city is a marvelous amalgamation of Hinduism, Tibetan Buddhism and Western cultures influences. Patan and Bhaktapur are its two major neighboring cities. These two cities, like Kathmandu, have a rich historical, cultural and religious legacy which is reflected in the many temples, monuments and artifacts that they contain. You will be taken on a half-day guided tour of Kathmandu and Bhaktapur cities. In Kathmandu, you will be visiting Pashupatinath, the most famous and revered Hindu shrine in the country; Boudhanath, the largest Buddhist stupa in Nepal, Soyambhunath, which contains both Buddhist and Hindu shrines and stands as testimony to the religious harmony that exists in the country; and the 15th-century 55-window palace in Bhaktapur. An orientation session for the trek, which commences the following day, will be organized in the evening.
Day3 : Flight to Lukla and trek to Phakding - (2,652m) 3/4 hrs walk A thrilling scenic flight to Lukla and a landing on a steep mountain runway brings us to the start of our trek at the village of Lukla [2850m]. After meeting the supporting crew, we head up the Dudh Kosi Valley on a well-marked trail and then stay overnight in Phakding.
Day4 : Phakding to Namche Bazaar - (3,440m) 6 hrs walk After a good breakfast at Phakding, we set out for the mountain junction town of Namche; we cross and re-cross the river on high airy suspension bridges. Beyond Monjo is the entrance to the Sagarmatha National Park which was set-up in order to protect and preserve the fragile mountain environment. We then take a steep hike to Namche Bazar. If the weather is clear, we get the first glimpse of Mt Everest. 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. Namche is the gateway to the Khumbu. This is where we crash out for the night.
Day5 : Acclimatization in Namche Bazaar - (3440m) : Namche is tucked away between two ridges amidst the giant peaks of the Khumbu and has an abundance of lodges, tea shops and souvenir shops. It is an ideal place to spend a day, acclimatising to the new altitude before heading off towards Syangboche. To acclimatize, you visit Khunde Hospital set-up by Sir Edmund Hillary, or take a one hour walk up to the Everest View Hotel above Namche for the sunset view of Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Lhotse and Everest. We then go to Khumjung where we visit a school established by Hillary. We begin our hike after enjoying lunch; by passing the route of Khimde. There are also good views from the National Park Centre and Museum just above the town. After going through our acclimatization drills, we head down to our lodge for some beers & a good sleep. 
Day6 : Trek Namche Bazaar to Tengboche - (3,860m) 5 hrs walk After breakfast in Namche, we start our trek towards Tengboche enjoying superb view of Mt. Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam and close up view of Thamserku. Our trek follows on the gradual trail with few ups and downs overlooking magnificent view of the great Himalaya. Along the way we can spot wild lives like pheasant, musk deer, or a herd of Himalayan Thar. The trail goes gradually down up to Kyangjuma. The path eventually reaches Sanasa which is the major trail junction to Gokyo valley and Everest Base Camp. The track then follows through the pine forests and after we cross the prayer flags festooned bridge over Dudh Kosi River, we reach Phunki Tenga, a small settlement with a couple of teahouses and a small army post amidst the alpine woods. After having a relaxed lunch at Phunki Tenga we then have a little tough climb steep up through the pine forests while before we reach Tengboche. Tengboche is a great place for close up views of Ama-Dablam, Nuptse, and Everest and it has a biggest Buddhist Monastery all over in Khumbu region. Overnight stay at lodge in Tengboche.
Day7 : Tengboche to Pheriche - (4,410m) 5 hrs walk We descend downhill through a forest, cross the Imja Khola and climb steadily to the village of Pangboche. This village is directly opposite Ama Dablam [6,856 m], 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 where we bunk out for the night. 
Day8 : A day to rest and chill out - (4,410m) This is a day to rest, acclimatize and give our weary bones a breather. However, we don’t remain idle; we also get to wander up the valley to look at a lake, the Tshola Tsho and the perpendicular walls of Cholatse and Tawache. We can climb up onto the ridge overlooking Dingboche for the view of the Imja Valley and the incredible south face of Mt. Lhotse. The views here steal your breath away. We bunk out in the village of Pheriche for the night. 
Day9 : Trek to Lobuche - (4,910m) 5 hrs walk We continue up the wide valley beneath the impressive peaks of Cholatse and Tawache on the left. We then turn right and take a steep climb towards the foot of the Khumbu Glacier. The tea house at Duglha is a good spot to have lunch. The trail zigzags 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. 
Day10 : Trek to Everest Base Camp and back to Gorakshep for night - (5400m) 8 hrs walk Today it’s a long and gritty day. After a hot breakfast at our lodge, we climb through meadows and moraine stones steps to reach Gorakshep, by either climbing to Kala Patthar or continue heading to Everest base camp. We suggest that you make a beeline for Everest base camp. By the way, from Everest base camp we do not see Mount Everest. However, from Kala Patthar, we get to see the entire south face of Mt. Everest and well known peaks nearby; this also includes great sights of the skyline of the Tibet plateau. Overnight at the height of (5,364) at lodge.
Day11 : Trek to Pheriche. via Kala Patthar - (4210m) 7 hrs walk After some early morning tea/coffee, we have the option to climb Kalapatthar at (5545m.) and enjoy a spectacular sunrise view. From Kala Patthar you can have a panoramic view of Mt. Everest and many other mountain peaks that include a host of famous ones: Mt. Pumori, Mt. Lingtren, Mt. Khumbetse, Mt. Nuptse, and Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Ama Dablam, Mt. Thamserku and many more huge peaks. Yaks are normally regarded as four legged porters in this area due to its tough terrain which would be difficult for human porters. The town of Pheriche is also known as a highly windy town. Hereabouts, you can see the perpendicular walls of Cholatse and Tawache. The Himalayan Rescue Association Aid Post is also located here and foreign volunteer doctors provide medical treatment to trekkers as well as local people in this area. We stay overnight at a lodge.
Day12 : Trek to Namche - (3440m) 6 hrs walk We retrace our steps with a Trek back to Namche about 6 hours from Pheriche and do an overnight at the bustling & hustling village town of Namche with full board meals (Breakfast/Dinner/Lunch). We chill out here with some beers and enjoy some relevant comfort. Overnight at lodge in Namche.
Day13 : Trek to Lukla - (2800m) 7 hrs walk This is our last day on these lovely mountains that has been home to us all of these days. We continue to back track our hike towards Lukla along the Dudh Koshi River which is about 7 hours from Namche and do an overnight at Lukla.
Day14 : Flight back to Kathmandu Most flights from Lukla to Kathmandu are schedule early morning to avoid the strong winds. It’s a scenic flight from Lukla to Kathmandu for about forty five minutes. We touch down at Kathmandu and transferred to our hotel.
Day15 : Departure to your destination After breakfast and our last day in Kathmandu, our vehicle and escorts will be on standby to drop you to the international airport three hours before our scheduled flight back home.
