Day 3

Lukla/Phakding (Nepal)

After your flight to the mountain airstrip of Lukla you will begin your trek up the valley of the Dudh Kosi followed by descending into the forested valley. You will cross several tributary streams as you make your way to the settlement of Phakding. This is where you will rest for the evening in a cosy tea house with private rooms, en-suite washrooms, and hot running water.

Please keep in mind that the rooms are not heated. You will receive either an electric blanket, or a hot water bottle to keep you warm. 

Day 4

Namche (Nepal)

Today's journey starts from Phakding and will take you through impressive forests which are filled with gorgeous flowers. You will be weaving up and down as you are making your way to Namche Bazaar. Keep your eyes peeled as you are bound to see your first glimpse of the summit of Mount Everest.

Upon arrival in Namche Bazaar you will have the rest of the day at lesiure where you can explore the town or enjoy a local brew while admiring the view. 

Day 5

Tashinga (Nepal)

Today you hike to the Everest View Hotel for lunch and then carry on to Tashinga where you will spend the night. This village sits within pine forests with breathtaking views of the Dudh Koshi Valley. 

Day 6

Pangboche (Nepal)

Start the day off with a short descent and bridge crossing. Don't get too comfortable as this will be followed by a steep ascent through a shaded forest as you make your way to the village of Thyangboche.

Continue downhill and then you will ascend again to Pangboche where you will see the end of all the ups and downs (at least for now). It is said the Lama Sange Dorje had flown here, over the Himalayas, from his monastery in Tibet.

Day 7

Pheriche

Passing through yak pastures before the area’s true sparseness reveals itself, we’ll encounter few villages, the odd wildlife, and perhaps a sherpa on our way to Pheriche (4,280m/14,500ft). For the next few days, the simple tea houses will reflect our serene surroundings… allow yourself to be immersed in this Buddhist calm. Today’s hike: about 4 hours.


Day 8

Pheriche/Optional Acclimitisation Hike

Today you may rest or partake in our optional (but highly recommended) acclimatization hike. We’ll either visit Nagajun Hill (5,050m,16,570ft) or Chukkhung village, soaking up views of lakes, glaciers, and famous peaks like Ama Dablam and Makalu. Today’s hike: about 5 hours.

Day 9

Lubuche

Moving at a sensible pace, we’ll traverse ice-covered torrents to Lobuche (4,930m/16,175ft), where stone houses sit amidst a frozen wilderness of stunning beauty. Sleep well and dream about tomorrow’s ultimate goal: Everest Base Camp! Today’s hike: about 5 hours.

Day 10

Everest Base Camp/ Gorakshep

What a day! It’s our final assault towards Everest Base Camp (5,367m/17,600ft) – capture the moment with some selfies and share the glory with your fellow travellers. After the celebration, we’ll descend to the frozen lakebed of Gorakshep (5,160m/16,930ft), with stop at the world’s highest glacier (Khumbu). Today’s hike: about 8 hours.

Day 11

Kala Patthar/Pheriche

Without doubt, the best place to see Everest is from Kala Patthar (5,545m/18,190ft), and we’ll be there at sunrise for a breathtaking moment that truly leaves you feeling the world at your fingertips. We’ll then revisit the sandy expanse of Gorakshep on our way back down to Pheriche (4,280m/14,500ft). Today’s hike: about 7 hours.

Day 12

Monjo

Retracing our steps from the beginning of our journey, we’ll spend tonight in Monjo (2,700m/8,860ft) at the newest, most luxurious of our tea houses. Sit back, relax, and savour your second last night in the Everest region! Today’s hike: about 5 hours.

Day 13

Tashinga

Today we return to Tashinga (3,400m/11,100ft) via Tengboche for lunch. It’s a gentle descent that crosses the Dudh Koshi torrent, which is fed by the Khumbu Glacier. Leaving behind alpine meadows, we’ll make our way through Deboche and Pangboche, with a chance to visit the region’s largest, most revered monastery. Today’s hike: about 6 hours.

Day 14

Lukla

Our last day of hiking includes a trek back to Chaunrikhara. We’ll leave the main trail for a short climb to Lukla, where our base camp adventure began! Why not treat yourself to a beer as we revel in the glory of our time together in the Himalayas? Today’s hike: about 5 hours.

Day 15

Kathmandu

This morning we fly back to Kathmandu. We typically book the earliest flight available for flexibility, in case there are weather delays. The rest of your day is free, after we check-in to our hotel.

Day 16

Kathmandu 

Today offers more free time, and flexibility should we encounter flight delays or cancellations from Lukla. However, if everything proceeds as planned, we’ll many excursions to consider, such as a visit to the stunning town of Bhaktapur, which is hard at work recovering from the 2015 earthquake. There will also be an optional farewell dinner, followed by before drinks on the town.

Day 17

Kathmandu/Departure 

There are no activities planned today – this simply allows time given the possibility of flight delays or cancellations from Lukla.
