Beginning from Lukla, we will walk through all the Sherpa villages on our way to Everest and back. Stand on the foot of Mount Everest and gaze at the majestic giant all you can.
The Everest region is cold, arid and unforgiving. You have to walk on snow, on trails carved on the sides of mountains and over deep gorges. So why do we dare? Because the little mountaineer within us says we can. At Everest, being so high and so removed from the rest of the world gives you a unique point of view of looking at life. In this trip, you will stand on the base of Mount Everest and also climb an actual mountain. In short, it is Himalayas at their best.
- Trek to the foot of Everest, the world’s highest mountain.
- Explore Sherpa villages and the ancient monasteries.
- Trek up to 5545m through spectacular scenery
What to Expect
Day 01 – Arrival. Pre-trip meeting. Overnight at hotel.
One of us will be there to pick you up as you land into Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu (4,600 feet). Your journey starts the next day and we will brief you on your big trip.
Day 02 – Fly to Lukla (9,334 feet) and trek to Phakding (8,562 feet). Overnight at guesthouse.
A half-an-hour flight takes you to Lukla, a small tourist town overlooking Everest. Landing into the Tenzing-Hillary Airport puts you officially inside the Everest Region from where you will begin your Everest Base Camp trek. We will start with a three-hour warmup trip downhill to Phakding village and rest for the day.
Day 03 – Trek to Namche Bazaar (11,290 feet). Overnight at guesthouse.
Not more than six hours of hiking will get you to Namche Bazaar, a Sherpa town with probably more tourists than Sherpas. You will be entering into the Sagarmatha National Park and walking through suspension bridges over vertigo-inducing gorges to get there. You will find just about everything at Namche Bazaar so you might want to go for a last minute shopping or perhaps chill out at night club. While acclimatizing to the freezing temperature and high altitude at Namche, you will get to meet travellers like yourself who are heading to or returning from Everest.
For the full itinerary, please message us and we will give you the full schedule.
Housing & Meals
In Kathmandu, you will stay in a three-star hotel while you will be staying at basic guesthouses during your trek. You will be served local food at all places we dine but you can order anything you like on the menu which you will have to pay for yourself. You will have a range of options so there won’t be a problem if you are a vegetarian or vegan. We make sure you get healthy and hygienic food throughout your travel.
