  • Day Arrival in Kathmandu

    Today marks the beginning of this wonderful adventure in Nepal. Kathmandu is the heartthrob and the capital of this beautiful mountainous country, and the only city with an international airport. You will be arriving in Kathmandu from your respective locations today. Our guide will transfer you to the hotel.

    The evening can be spent in strolling around the throbbing streets of the Kathmandu City or relishing the unique and the delicious cuisine that Nepal is famous for. Rest adequately as the adventure begins from the very next day.

    • Overnight at hotel in Kathmandu
    • Meals not included
  • Day Fly from Kathmandu to Lukla & trek to Monjo

    This day starts with embarking on one of the most scenic flights in Nepal, from Kathmandu to Lukla. Surrounded by majestic peaks, with the sun glistening over each of them, the flight is no less than a heavenly experience. The flight ends in a small airstrip in Lukla. And you cannot help but wonder about the expertise of the pilots, in landing the plane at the small airstrip.

    After the tumultuous landing in the small airstrip, it is time to pass through several exotic villages to reach Monzo which resides on the northward area of the DudhKoshi Valley. DudhKoshi means Milk River and the river actually lives up to its name. Upon descending down a small plateau to the forested valley, we will be welcomed by tantalizing views of the mountain peaks of the Everest Region. We will finally reach the settlement of Monzo where we will spend the night. Approximately 35 minutes of flight. Approximately 6 hours of trek.

    • Breakfast, lunch & dinner included
    • Overnight at standard lodges in Monzo
  • Day Trek from Monzo to Namche (3440m)

    Enter the Everest National Park and climb slowly up to Namche Bazaar through the DudhKoshi River today. We start off our day by walking northwards along the DudhKoshi. We will be passing through the magnificent forests of magnolia, giant fir, and rhododendron. If you are lucky and happen to come to this trek in the spring season, you will be met with the red colored rhododendrons in full bloom. Upon reaching Jorasale (2805m), we will be crossing the west fork of the BhoteKoshi River. From here, the climb up to Namche Bazaar is a steep one.

    After a 300 meter ascent, we will be met with the magnetic views of the massive Everest and its summit high above us. The summit appears majestic and tall beside the Nuptse-Lhotse ridge. After climbing for another 300 meter we will be entering into the “entry point of the Everest”, the Namche Bazaar (3440m). Namche Bazaar was once a trading spot for Tibetans and Nepalese people. The trading route has now been closed. Namche is now a prosperous village, full of Sherpas. You will find everything from trekking materials to an internet connection to other supplies easily. A weekly “haat” or “bazaar” is set up every week here where fresh foodstuffs, brought from lower villages are set up and sold. We will spend the night in the warm and welcomeing, Sherpa settlement of Namche. Approximately 7 hours of walk.

    • Breakfast, lunch & dinner included
    • Overnight at standard lodges in Lukla
  • Day In Namche (3440m)

    To eliminate the risk of Altitude sickness it is mandatory to separate one day for acclimatization at this point. Rather than resting around in the lodge today, it is best to hike to the villages of Khunde and Khumjung.

    We will firstly climb out steeply from Namche to the Everest View Hotel. This strategically situated hotel offers the extremely tantalizing views of the Everest and AmaDablam in its full glory. A perfect location to have a short tea break, the Everest View Hotel was built by the Japanese.

    We continue to trek into the villages of Kunde and Khumjung. Both of these villages are situated under the rocky peak Khumbila. Khumbila is a sacred peak for Sherpas. While in Khunde, we can visit the Edmund Hillary Hospital and move on to visit a monastery in Khumjung. Give a small donation to the monastery and, we will get the opportunity to witness a Yeti Skull. We will descend back to Namche to spend the night. The hiking can be cut short depending upon the interest of the trekking group.

    Another option is to move upwards towards the village of Thame. Thame is the village of Tenzing Norgay, the first Sherpa to scale the Everest. We continue the hike upwards to Phurte, which offers exclusive views of the mountain peaks all around.

    • Breakfast, lunch & dinner included
    • Overnight at standard lodges in Namche
  • Day Fly from Namche to Everest Base Camp to Kathmandu

    A special day as we fly on a helicopter to the Everest Base Camp. View the surrounding mountain ranges like AmaDablam (6856m), Thamserku (6608m), Lhotse (8501m), Nuptse (7859m), Kantega (6685m) before finally reaching the base camp. If lucky, we might get the chance to meet several people, moving up towards the Everest Expedition and many who might be returning back after scaling the highest peak in the world. The Everest Base Camp offers the extremely beautiful views of the Khumbu Ice Fall along with the panorama of several mountains of the region. With our minds amazed at the miraculous big blocks of ice, before us and the beautiful Nuptse towering above us, this moment is certainly a one to remember for a lifetime. Pumori rears up behind the Everest Base Camp.  After witnessing the spectacle surrounding this naturally beautiful location, of base camp it is time to fly back to Kathmandu. Approximately 2 hours of helicopter flight.
