What will I be doing?
Day 1 - 2
Fly overnight to Kathmandu - the gateway to the Nepali Himalaya. Take time to relax before having dinner at a local restaurant.
After a full trip briefing, you'll spend the day exploring Kathmandu. Visit the central Durbar Square, home to the Old Royal Palace. This is your last chance to buy any last-minute trekking equipment.
Take a early morning flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, 'Gateway of the Everest region,' meet your assistant guides and porters in a local tea house, after this trek north to Phakding.
Head from Phakding and follow the trail as you make your way through rhododendron, magnolia and giant fir-trees as you make your way to Namche Bazaar.
Enjoy a valuable acclimatisation day and see your first sighting of Everest.
Day 7 - 9
Today you'll make your way northeast from Namche along the tributary valley and the mountain views start to open up, becoming more dramatic as the climb begins to approach the holy ground of Tengboche, surrounded by juniper forest. On a ridge above the much-photographed gompa (monastery) you'll be able to see the spectacular view of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Kwangde and Kangtega. Enjoy a nights rest before heading to the 'summer village' of Dingboche where you'll spend day 9 aclimatising to the altitude.
Day 10 -12
Leave Dingboche and make your way up the gentle slopes to Lobuche, often reached by walking past frozen rivers and through the icy wilderness. After staying in Lobuche for the night you'll head to Gorakshep en-route to reaching the goal of Everest Base Camp. You'll celebrate with photos and hugs before heading back down to Gorakshep fo the night. If you aren't too tired you can rise early morning to trek to the summit of Kalapatar for sunrise views over Everest.
Day 13 - 15
Retrace your trail as you make your way to Lukla,on the way down you'll be rewarded once again with panoramic views of the Himalayan mountains. Celebrate your success when you arrive in Lukla.
Fly from Lukla to Kathmandu, spend the rest of the day sightseeing, exploring, shopping or just relaxing in Kathmandu's restaurants and cafes before spending the evening celebrating your achievements!
Enjoy a free day to explore Kathmandu.
