Mount Everest(8848m/29029ft), the greatest challenge, is more than the famous mountain, it has proved to be a targeted climbing achievement and renowned as the Highest peak of the world. The mountain receives more than 1000 summit attempts every year. It has a unique beauty, vagueness, and mood. Successful historical Everest Expeditions leaves one with the sense of most proud and adventurous person on Earth. Everest can be climbed both from the southern side Nepal and northern side Tibet. Mt. Everest was first summited in 1953 by Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Edmund Hillary via the South Col. Therefore the southern approach to the mountain via the Khumbu Valley became trendy among the climbers, this mountain has many names: Chomolungma, Sagarmatha, Qomolungma or Mt. Everest.

It has a unique beauty, mystery, and mood. Successful historical Everest Expeditions leaves one with the sense of most proud and adventurous person on Earth. For many who are mainly, trekkers become contended having the best view of it from Kala Pattar, Gokyo RI or visiting Everest base camp.

Itinerary

Day 1:Arrival in Kathmandu (1300 m/4264 ft) .

After our arrival at the Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) in Kathmandu, a our
reprentative/staff will pick us up from the airport and take us to our hotel. We can take

rest and later visit the company office in Thamel, a popular tourist hub. However, there
will be a welcome dinner in the evening where we get to experience excellent Nepalese
cuisine.

Day 02:Kathmandu: sightseeing and trek preparation.

After breakfast we begin our tour of four amazing UNESCO World Heritage Sites. These
include the architecturally rich Durbar Square, the sacred Hindu temple of Pashupati
Nath, the interesting ‘Monkey Temple’ (Swayambunath) and Bauddha Nath Stupa which
is one of the largest stupas in the world. After completing our tour late in the
afternoon, we drive to Himalayan Glacier’s office for a brief meeting about our trek and
get to know our team leader (guide) and fellow travelers.

Day 03: Fly to Lukla, trek to Phakding (2,651m/8,700ft): 40 minutes flight; 8km, 3 - 4 hours trek.

All treks to Everest begin from Luka where we will be flying to early in the morning, right
after breakfast. The flight will be an interesting one since we will be flying amidst the
grand Himalayas in a Twin Otter airplane. We begin our short trek to Phakding
immediately after landing. At one hour’s gradual descent, we will be at a Cheplung
village from where we have a glimpse of Mt. Khumbila (18900ft), a sacred mountain
which has never been climbed. From Cheplung, we continue descending to Phakding
and spend the night.

Day 04:Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3,438m/11,280 ft): 11km, 5 - 6 hours.

We begin our trek on uphill and downhill trails with multiple crossings over Dudh Koshi
River and a magnificent view of Mt. Thamserku (21,675ft) from the Benkar village. We
cross more bridges and reach the entrance of Sagarmatha National Park at Monjo,
where our trekking permits are checked. We walk furthermore and pass through Jorsale
village before reaching Namche Bazaar. From here, we get beautiful views of the
Himalayas including Everest, Lhotse, Tawache and others. Overnight in Namche Bazaar.

Day 05: Namche Bazaar: Rest and acclimatization.

This is the first of the three scheduled rest days which will help us acclimatize to the
high altitude. Since experts believe that it is better to stay active even during rest days
for better trekking experience we are going to spend the day enjoying small hikes in and
around Namche Bazaar. We hike up to Everest View Hotel to enjoy admirable views of

the Himalayan vista. On our way back to Namche we also tour the Khumjung Monastery
(houses a yeti scalp!) and Hillary School. Our guide can also take us to the Tourist Visitor
Center near the headquarter of the Sagarmatha National Park where we can observe an
assortment of things related to the first Everest ascenders, Sherpa culture and learn
about the various plant and animal life in the Everest region. Overnight in Namche
Bazaar.

Day 06: Namche Bazaar to Tengboche (3860m/12,660 ft): 10km, 5 - 6 hours .

We begin today’s trek on an easy trail to Phunki Thanga. From here we ascend towards
Tengboche village which is home to the largest monastery in the Everest region. The
monastery is located within the Sagarmatha National Park and provides panoramic
views of the highest mountains on earth including Everest, Ama Dablam, Thamserku,
Nuptse and Lhotse. We try to reach the monastery by 3:00 in the afternoon and may
even be able to witness a religious Buddhist ceremony. Overnight in Tengboche.

Day 07:Tengboche to Dingboche (4,360 m/14,300 ft): 9km, 5 - 6 hours.

We begin today’s trek by walking downhill and pass through lush forests filled with
birch, conifers and rhododendron trees. We continue our trek with views of Mt. Everest,
Lhotse and Ama Dablam to keep us company. The picturesque trail dips down to
Debuche, crosses the Imja River and takes us to Pangboche. While walking the upper
Pangboche trails, we get a more pristine view of the Himalayas and Pangboche
Monastery. We move ahead towards the Imja Valley, Lobuche River and ultimately
climb up to Dingboche. The village is a beautiful windy settlement overlooked by
chortens and prayer flags. Overnight in Dingboche.

Day 08: Dingboche: acclimatization and rest.

Dingboche is a popular stop for trekkers and climbers headed to Mt. Everest, Ama
Dablam or Imja Tse. The village is beautiful with an array of fields enclosed by stone
walls to protect barley, buckwheat and potatoes from the cold wind and grazing
animals. We spend a day at Dingboche for acclimatization. We take a day hike to
Nagarjun Hill for great views of Makalu, Lhotse, Chalotse, Tawache, Ama Dablam and
others.

Day 09:Dingboche to Chhukung (4750m/15,580 ft), climb Chhukung Ri (5,546m): 14km, 6 – 7 hours.

Our trail passes through stone-walled fields and Imja Khola valley before entering glacier
moraines amidst towering Himalayas. The trail continues to Bibre which is a yak
herdsman place. From here, directly across the valley is the fantastic Ama Dablam and
the Amphu Labsa mountains. The trail ahead is intersected by icy streams. We continue
our walk for around half an hour and reach Chhukung. After lunch, we begin our trek
towards Chhukung Ri. The climb to Chhukung Ri involves some easy scrambling near the
summit. From the top, we can look directly across the valley for a fantastic view of Ama
Dablam and Amphu Labcha peaks. We descend back to Chhukung to spend the night.

Day 10: Cross to Kongma La pass (5535m/18,159ft), trek to Lobuche (4940m/16,210ft): 10km, 6 - 7 hours.

We begin today’s trek very early in the morning to reach the highest part of the entire
trip which is Kongma La pass. We can either take a trail over a hill which is to the
northwest of Chhukung over the Nuptse Glacier moraines or we can walk back to Bibre
and trek on the trail above the Niyang Khola. The top of the pass is marked by cairns and
Buddhist prayer flags. The final descent from the pass is the most difficult part of today’s
journey. After climbing the moraine on the far side, the trail turns north through
Khumbu Glacier which takes us to Lobuche. Overnight at Lobuche.

Day 11:Lobuche to Gorak Shep (5170 m/16,961ft), visit Everest Base Camp (5364 m/17,594 ft): 13km, 6-7 hours.

Our trail moves along the lateral moraine of the Khumbu Glacier. Ahead on the trail we
see the crest of the north ridge of Everest along with Pumori, Mahalangur, Lingtern,
Khumbutse, Nuptse and other mountains. A small ascent takes us to Thangma Riju.
From here we admire panoramic views of the Himalayan vista. We ascend on a steep
trail up to the top of Changri Glacier. As we reach Gorak Shep, we are surrounded by
the Himalayas. After resting for a short while, we continue to Everest Base Camp. We
pass through rocky dunes, moraines and streams before reaching the base camp of the
world’s tallest mountain, Everest. From here we admire Nuptse, Khumbuste and Pumori
mountains. We trek back to Gorak Shep and spend the night.

Day 12: Gorak Shep to Kala Patthar (5545 m/18,192 ft), then to Lobuche (4940 m/16,207 ft): 7km, 8 - 9 hours.

We start our trek to Kala Patthar early in the morning in order to catch remarkable
views of the first light of the sun shining on Mt. Everest. However, we need to be
prepared for trekking in the dark and cold temperature (the temperature varies
according to the season). Furthermore, there is always a chance for chilly winds which
are quite common. As we continue our trek, familiar peaks such as Lingtren, Khumbutse,
Changtse, Everest and Nuptse tower above us. After several hours of ascent, we will be
on the top of Kala Patthar. The close-up view of Mt. Everest and other Himalayan peaks
from Kalapathar is amazing. We enjoy the stunning Himalayan vista and descend to
Lobuche where we stay the night.

Day 13:Lobuche to Dzongla (4830m/15,850 ft): 6km, 3 - 4 hours.

From Lobuche we trek downhill on a trail alongside the Khumbu Glacier. Our trail splits
into two and we choose the trail on our right. On the way we can better admire the view
of the looming Awi Peak. We pass through a stupa and tombstones in the distance.
After walking for a while we begin to ascend. During the ascent, we see Chola Tsho Lake
nearby. We continue further and pass another lake which is lot smaller than the Chola
Tsho Lake. We cross the Chola Khola on a bridge before reaching Dzongla. Overnight in
Dzongla.

Day 14:Trek to Gokyo (4800m/15,580 ft) via Cho La pass (5368m/17,611 ft): 6km, 7 - 8 hours.

As we gain height, the Cho La Lake begins to appear and the Ama Dablam presides over
a range of mountains on the south and Cholatse soars on the west. Climbing the incline
is not easy; it is steep, but made worse by boulders over some of which we will have to
scramble. The final climb to the Cho La can be a little tricky as the trail curves round a
crevasse. The top of the pass is marked by prayer flags and cairns. Scenery of majestic
peaks on all directions is breathtaking. Although long, the path leading down to
Thangnak is not difficult. Our trail brings us to the edge of the Ngozumpa glacier, which
is the longest glacier in Nepal. Reaching the other side of the glacier, we see the second
Gokyo Lake on the series of six lakes. A short distance away is the third Gokyo Lake. On
the edge of this lake stands the Gokyo Village where we spend the night.

Day 15 :Rest day in Gokyo: Climb Gokyo Ri (5357m/17,575 ft), tour 4th and 5th Gokyo lakes: 3 - 4 hours.

We climb Gokyo Ri today and enjoy views of the incredible mountain vista. We can also
tour the fourth Gokyo Lake today which is only 3km north of the Gokyo Village. Next,
continue trekking to the 5th lake. The view from ‘Scoundrel’s Viewpoint’, located at the
edge of the 5th lake, is astonishing. Cho-Oyu, Gyachung Kang, Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse,
and Makulu mountains and the huge Ngozumba Glacier are ours to admire. We trek
back to Gokyo and spend the night.

Day 16 :Gokyo to Marlung (4210m/13,810 ft) via Renjo La Pass (5360m/17585 ft): 11km, 7 - 8 hours.

We start the day early in the morning to complete the long day’s trek ahead. Our trail
moves alongside Dudh Pokhari (lake) for a while. We walk for around two hours before
descending towards the Renjo La pass. On the way we are rewarded with extravagant
views of the Himalayan and Rolwaling ranges and others. Views from the Renjo La pass
are much like that from Gokyo Ri with the third Gokyo Lake and Gokyo Village beneath
the gray smear of the Ngozumpa Glacier. We also get outstanding views of Mt. Everest
from the top of the pass. Continuing on from the pass, our trail winds down a stone
staircase and then moves over a loose scree to reach the south bank of Angladumba
Tsho Lake. The prescence of ice on the trail while descending down can make our
descent a bit hazardous. Along the way we see Relama Tsho and Renjo Lake. We walk
down a narrow valley clogged with giant boulders to Lumde where there is a support
lodge, but it is often closed. We walk almost for an hour from Lumde to get to Marlung
on the east bank of the Bhote Koshi River. Overnight at Marlung.

Day 17 :Marlung to Namche Bazaar: 15km, 5 - 6 hours.

The descent from Marulung to Thame follows a traditional route used for centuries by
the Tibetan traders. We cross the Bhote Koshi River and descend to Taranga. The trail
continues to descend and we cross two bridges before reaching Thame. Overlooking
Thame is its famous Gompa situated on a hill to the west. From here, we descend
gradually on a trail that passes through a few small villages before reaching Namche
Bazaar which is probably the biggest town in the Everest region.

Day 18Namche Bazaar to Lukla: 19km, 6 - 7 hours .

We begin our trek with a descent. As we continue our trek, we cross several bridges
over the fast flowing Dudh Koshi River and its tributaries. Now the trail has become
more level and natural. On our trek we enjoy walking on open plains, through
rhododendron and pine forests and enjoy distant views of the snow covered peaks. We
walk through Sherpa villages noticing their impressive faith in Buddhism and the culture
of prayer stones and prayer flags. After reaching Lukla, we stretch those sore legs and
recall the experiences of the last couple of weeks. Our long trek to the mountain and its
high passes ends today.

Day 19 :Lukla to Kathmandu: 40 minutes flight .

The flights to Kathmandu are usually scheduled for morning for safety purposes. After
reaching the capital city, we have the rest of the day off to past the time as we please.
We could take a rest in our hotel room or shop for souvenirs for our loved ones. In the
evening, there will be a farewell dinner to celebrate the successful completion of your
journey to the mountains.

Day 20 :Final departure.

Our amazing journey in the Everest region including that to the base camp of Mt.
Everest and crossing high passes comes to an end today. A company representative will
pick you up from you hotel and drop you off at the airport 3 hours before our scheduled
flight.
