Upon your arrival at the International Airport of Kathmandu, our team will be there to pick you up. You will then transferred to one of the deluxe hotel in Thamel for overnight stay.
In the evening, we will have a short meeting to discuss the information about your insurance as well as the trip. Similarly, the main focus will be to give you the information regarding the trip and to let you meet with the guide.
After having a delicious breakfast, our team will accompany you with the Kathmandu heritage tour today. You will visit maximum of four Heritage sites located in Kathmandu and you will learn about some unique cultures of Nepal too.
It can be very hot during the day time if it’s the Spring season. That is why put on some light breathable clothes during the trip.
Early in the morning, your guide will come to pick you up in your hotel. You will then go to the airport for the Lukla flight.
Usually, there are very fewer cases where there is a cancelation of flight or delay of flight during the trek. If that problem occurs then there will be several methods we can apply but it will consume an extra day. That is why we recommend you take a few extra days before going to trek.
Well, the flight from Kathmandu to Lukla will only take 25-30 minutes. And after reaching Lukla airport, you will then have a short trek to Phakding which is at an elevation of 2,800m. The routes are plain and well maintained while trekking to Phakding. And after reaching the Phakding you will have your lunch.
Today you will enter the Sagarmatha National Park region, which is also one of the World Heritage sites. Similarly, we will start the trek as soon as we have our breakfast in Phakding.
Today you will cross 5 suspension bridges including the final 5th famous Hillary bridge.
You will have lunch at Jorsalle which is the final village before reaching the Namche Bazar.
After passing Hillary bridge the trail is steep uphill till you reach Namche. And on the way, you will have your first glance of Mount Everest from viewpoint before reaching Namche Bazar.
Acclimatization is very important and that is why today you will have a full day of exploration in Namche Bazar.
Today you can go hiking to the world’s highest hotel or go to the market. Besides that, if possible, you can take a stroll to the Sherpa museum where you can learn the culture of Sherpa’s properly.
Similarly, remember that from here, you will be in the territory of Sagarmatha National Park. And this national park is listed as World Heritage Sites. So, you can’t hunt or hurt any animals while trekking.
As a matter of fact, Namche is well developed and provides internet cafes, restaurants, government offices, ATM,s and a cheap market from Friday evening to Saturday. Therefore, if you want to buy any souvenirs then this place is the best.
Tyangboche is the home of Monks where you will learn the cultures based on Tibetan cultures. After an acclimatization day in Namche Bazar, it will be a little easy to trek to Tyangboche. However, walk slowly and drink lots of water to be free from Altitude sickness.
When trekking to Tyangboche/Tengboche, you will encounter lots of prayer flags in the way. And to reach the Tyangboche it will only take 6 hours on average. In Tyangboche, you can see the oldest monastery of the Everest region also.
As you trek further, the more it will get exciting because all the mountains will be very close enough. Today we will trek to Deboche through the lush rhododendron forest.
We will start our trek as soon as we eat breakfast. Today’s trek is steep upward to Pangboche which is also a Sherpa village. You will have your lunch at Somare which is near to Dingboche.
Similarly, from Tyangboche to Dingboche, it’s just 6 hours walk with extraordinary landscape views. From here also, you will witness Mount Everest hidden between the Lhotse-Nuptse ridge as well as Ama Dablam.
Today will be another rest day/acclimatization day. You can either climb to Nangkartshang Peak or explore Dingboche. Nangkartshang Peak is terribly steep upward to climb which is also very hard but totally worth it.
Today’s acclimatization day will help you to tackle altitude sickness as well as it will help you to boost your energy. Success to climb Nangkartshang Peak is the same as reaching the Mount Everest Base Camp.
After a second acclimatization day in Dingboche, you will be almost ready for Everest Base Camp. Trekking to Lobuche will be easy as pie if you have climbed to Nagarjuna peak.
Similarly, today will be a long walk from Dingboche to Lobuche. That is why we will walk early in the morning after a delicious breakfast. You’ll have a lunch break at Thukla/Dukla at 4,630m altitude.
Always remember that walking slowly is the key to success while trekking as well as drink enough water. Once you come across the highest of the mountain, you’ll see several memorials of various mountaineers. Similarly, the path is a little complicated to Lobuche from this place.
After 2 days of acclimatization and 6 days of continuous walk, you will finally achieve your goal today. Today, after breakfast in Lobuche, we will head to Gorakshep which is not so hard. And from Lobuche, it will only take 3 hours minimum to reach Gorakshep. And from there, it will only take 2 hours to reach Everest Base Camp.
Most of the peoples get confused in Everest Base Camp whether Mount Everest can be seen or not. However, you will not see Mount Everest from Everest Base Camp.
But, from Kalapathar, you can see the Mount Everest Base Camp. If you want to hike to Kalapathar then you can customize this trek also.
After an incredible experience in Everest base camp, it’s time to trek right down to Lukla. You will get a delicious breakfast here. From Gorakshep, it’s all downhill to Pheriche 4,210m for an overnight stop.
If you feel tired then there will be an alternative place for an overnight stay. But if you can walk then we will head down to Pheriche which will take up to 6 hours.
You will be amazed by how easy it is to head back to Namche Bazar. You will be full of energy again because you will have no problem breathing as you ascend down to 3,440m. If you were having sleep disorder at a higher altitude then get to the bed early as you will have sound sleep here.
Today is the last day in the Everest region after accomplishing the EBC trek. Head down back to Lukla with sweet memories & selfies. You will have your lunch at Phakding & overnight stay in Lukla.
Early morning after a delicious breakfast you will fly back to Kathmandu, bidding the Everest peaks goodbye for the last time. You will land at Kathmandu airport after a short 30mins scenic flight. After your arrival, our team will come to pick you up. Similarly, today will be our treat for a successful trip or let’s say a farewell party.
Today you will be transferred to the international airport approximately three hours before your scheduled flight by one of our representatives.

Yes, you can do it even in June-Aug too but you will need extra days just for incase if anything happens because this is monsoon season. The domestic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla to Kathmandu can be delayed due to bad weather. Normally, weather on high altitude area is fine at this time.

No, there is no any hidden charges for what we have provided facilities. But if you used the horse for riding, helicopter instead of flying domestic flight, using five-star accommodation in Katmandu, then only that is your own cost to pay.
Yes, people as young as Seven and old as 70 have successfully completed the trek. But it doesn’t mean everyone can do, especially if your children have never done any hiking in high altitude before, you can’t bring them just for their safety.
Ghorepani Poon Hill trek, Chitwan jungle safari, Mustang Tour will be best for most of the children.
