ARRIVAL AT KATHMANDU

After arriving at the airport in Kathmandu, you will be greeted by our 
representative. Then, you will be transferred to the hotel. Spend the day in 
rest and relaxation. Overnight stay at the hotel.
.

KATHMANDU

On the second day of the tour, you will be taken on a half-day trip to the 
city of Kathmandu. Among the many places that the trip covers, one is 
Swayambhunath, a famous Buddhist stupa. Kathmandu is the capital and the 
largest city of Nepal, with tourism playing a key role in its economy. Since 
ancient times, it has been the hub of history, culture and art in Nepal. 
Swayambhunath is the oldest religious structure in Nepal. Located in the 
northwest part of the valley, it is mired in legends. According to 
historical sources, it was built during the 13th century by King Manadeva. 
Foreigners visiting the stupa also refer to it as Monkey Temple. From here, 
you can enjoy panoramic views of the surroundings. You are free in the 
evening and can spend it any way you like. You can also spend it preparing 
for the next day’s trekking. Overnight stay at the hotel.

DAY 2

 
 

DAY 3

KATHMANDU-LUKLA-PHAKDING

In the morning, you will catch a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, the 
duration of which is 30 minutes. This quaint town in the Solukhumbu district 
is located at an altitude of 2,886m and has its own airport. After arriving, 
you will begin the trek from Lukla to Phakding (located at an altitude of 
2,640m), which will take you three hours approx. The entire route is dotted 
with tea shops, lodges, hotels and general stores. The trek begins by 
climbing the mountain side on the left bank of the River Dudh Kosi, which is 
also known as Dudh Kosi and Sapta Kosi. Located in eastern Nepal, it is 
formed by seven rivers which come together in east central Nepal. From here, 
you can enjoy the spectacular views of Nupla Peak, which proclaims its 
greatness at a height of 5,885m approx. After spending some time here, 
descend from a path in the mountain which meets the trekking route to Mt. 
Everest. During the descent, your eyes meet the sight of a valley located to 
the right, with Mt. Kusum Kang visible in the distance. It is locally known 
as Kusum Kanguru, which means the three snow white gods in the language 
spoken by the Sherpa community in Nepal, after its three summits. It is 
considered to be one of the most difficult mountains for climbing. As you 
continue the trek and pass the Mani Wall (a stone wall inscribed with 
Buddhist mantras which is placed alongside the road in Buddhist countries), 
you get closer to River Dudh Kosi. The trek continues along a path 
punctuated with several climbs and descents until you reach Phakding. 
Overnight stay at Phakding.

PHAKDING-NAMCHE BAZAAR

Your trekking holidays in Nepal promise to get even more exciting and filled 
with adventures on this day. The trekking route on this day will start from 
Phakding and end at Namche Bazaar, with its entire duration being four 
hours. The distance between the two points is almost 10.4 km. Besides 
offering you with spectacular views along the way, this trek also lets you 
acclimatize to the thin air as you make your way to higher altitudes. You 
will also cross several high suspension bridges along the route. The 
landscape which greets your eyes along the way is characterized by cliffs 
and gorges. There is plenty of action and adventure to be had. A major 
attraction of this trek is the magnificent view of several mountain peaks 
like Mt. Kusum Kangru, Mt. Thamserku, Mt. Kongde Ri and Mt. Taboche. If you 
feel like, you can also visit the various monasteries in the villages during 
the trek. Finally, you reach Namche Bazaar, located at an altitude of 
3,440m. It is the main trading center of the Khumbu region and 
interestingly, most of the Sherpas of Nepal hail from this area. The entire 
village comes to life during the weekly market which is held on Saturdays. 
It attracts Hindu traders from the lower areas of the region as well as 
Tibetan yak caravans looking to sell their goods. Overnight stay at Namche.

DAY 4

DAY 4

 
 

DAY 5

NAMCHE

On this day of the Gokyo Lower Everest Base Trek, you will acclimatize to 
the environment and surroundings by trekking to places located in close 
proximity. Spread out on a ridge and overlooked by several mountain peaks in 
the Namche region, it boasts several tea shops and lodges. Tourists making a 
stop here are often surprised by the incredible views surrounding them on 
all sides. To help you acclimatize, you will be enjoying a walk to the 
village of Khumjung. This village is a part of Sagarmatha National Park 
(which is in itself a UNESCO World Heritage Site) in the Khumbu region. The 
majority inhabitants of this village belong to the Sherpa community. Make a 
brief stop here and treat your eyes to the charming views of various 
mountain peaks like Mt. Everest, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, Nuptse, Lhotse and 
Kongde Ri. Alternatively, you also have the option of heading to Syangboche, 
located at an altitude of 3,800m approx. Take some to stop here and delight 
in the visual spectacle staring you at the face. You can also make your way 
towards the National Park Center and Museum which has a wide array of 
exhibits on Sherpa culture. Overnight stay at Namche Bazaar.

NAMCHE BAZAAR-KHUMJUNG

This day is all about sightseeing and getting a brief cultural glimpse into 
the lifestyle of the people living in the Nepal Himalayas. Depart from the 
village of Namche and go along the small trail located above the River Dudh 
Kosi. Stop for some time and take a look at the views surrounding you here. 
The western side of the river is marked by the Nupla ridge and Mt. Kongde 
Himal. Mt. Thamserku marks its dominating presence to the south, while to 
the east, Mt. Lhotse and Mt. Nuptse, overlook the valley at Dingboche. And 
crowning all of these is Mt. Everest, appearing like a divine vision in the 
distance, once again reminding you of the infinite beauty of nature. Strain 
your eyes a little more, and you can see the monastery of Tengboche 
Monastery, its white color starkly contrasted against the gigantic brown 
mountains. The monastery, which is also known as Dawa Choling Gompa, is 
situated at an altitude of 3,867m and is the largest monastery in the Khumbu 
region of Nepal. Make your way to the village of Khumjung. These villages 
are quite different from those found in Namche. Even after years of tourism, 
the lifestyle of the Sherpas has remained unaffected. Getting a glimpse of 
their way of life is a privilege. During your stay here, you can try a 
delicious Sherpa speciality called Riki Kur. You have the afternoon to 
yourself and can utilize it for further acclimatization. Overnight stay at 
Khumjung.

DAY 7

DAY 7

KHUMJUNG-PHORTSE THANGA

Your trekking holidays in Nepal on this day starts with a delicious 
breakfast. That is followed by a descent to the west of the village which 
ultimately leads to River Dudh Kosi. On this route, you will be turning 
north and taking the road that is mostly used by trekkers to reach Tengboche 
and Everest Base Camp. There are two routes marking the first leg of the 
trek. The first one is the yak trails which rise graciously and aren’t so 
steep, while the other trail, built of rocks which have been placed in an 
opening in a large boulder, is quite challenging. However, the two trails 
soon meet after a while with the route leading to a large stupa, or chorten, 
which sits atop the ridge at a height of 3,973m. From the top of the ridge, 
the trail gradually makes its way down in a series of steep slopes marked by 
sharp bends all the way to River Dudh Kosi. Finally, you have reached 
Phortse Thanga. Overnight stay at Phortse Thanga.

PHORTSE THANGA-DOLE

The day starts with a delicious breakfast at around 7 AM. Post breakfast, 
begin your journey to Dole. The trail route here gets quite steep as is 
emerges from the valley. As you continue, you pass through rhododendron 
forests which are followed by juniper and conifer trees, which appear in 
greater numbers with an increase in elevation. This trek is immensely 
popular with the tourists for the spectacular views it provides. During the 
spring however, with the blooming of rhododendrons flowers, beauty seems to 
take on a different meaning here. Along the trail, you cross several kharkas 
(settlements used by sherpas when they bring herds of yaks for grazing on 
the lush pasture). There are various settlements which fall along the way 
until you reach Dole. A few hotels and other accommodations can also be 
found. From here, you can enjoy the spectacular views of Mt. Khumbila, which 
in the local language means, God of Khumbu. It is one of the highest peaks 
in the Khumbu region and rises towards the skies at an altitude of 5761m. 
You can also decide to climb the ridge located just behind Dole to get a 
sweeping view of the valley. Overnight stay at Dole.

DAY 8

 
 

DAY 9

DOLE-MACHHERMO

On this day, you will be making your way from Dole to Machhermo, with a lot 
of adventure trekking making your day an exciting one. From Dole, the trail 
keeps ascending until it touches the village of Lambara, situated at a 
height of 4220m, and Luza, at 4360m. In most of the places, you will find 
the climb to be particularly steep even as it makes its way through shrub 
junipers, as they appear to dance in the wind. The route keeps going upwards 
along the side of the valley until it reaches the beautiful village of 
Machhermo, located at a height of 4410m. This village is extremely popular 
among trekkers on their way to Sagarmatha (highest point of Mount Everest) 
as it allows them to stop for rest and refreshment. An interesting tale 
circulating in the village is that of a Yeti attack in 1974 which killed 
three yaks along with a woman belonging to the Sherpa community. The 
village, which stretches itself luxuriously between two enormous mountains, 
is as beautiful as any you will ever come across. Stay overnight at 
Machhermo.

MACHHERMO-GOKYO

On this day of the Gokyo Lower Everest Trek, you will follow the trail which 
reaches out and finally comes to an end at a ridge. This place offers 
mesmerizing views of the valley spread out below, as well as that of Mt. 
Kantega, which is located at a height of 6782m and Cho Oyu (which is the 
sixth highest mountain of the region and is situated at a height of 8188m). 
Once you cross the ridge however, the valleys begins to open itself. The 
trail now cuts its way through Mt. Pangka, located at a height of 4390m. 
Then, it makes a graceful descent till the river bank before rising again to 
the terminal moraine of the Ngozumpa Glacier. This part of the trek promises 
to be quite challenging. Climbing the moraine challenges your endurance and 
stamina, but the sheer thrill and adventure that it provides is certainly 
worth it. The zigzagging road along the stream crosses a lake whose 
elevation is 4650m. This lake is famous for being home to the Brahminy 
ducks. As you go further, the trail gradually loses its steepness and 
continues that way all the way to Gokyo. Situated at a height of 4750m, it 
is one of the highest settlements in Nepal and the world. The views are, 
like always, something to talk about. Overnight stay in Gokyo.

DAY 10

 
 

DAY 11

GOKYO

Your day begins with a delicious and healthy breakfast. After this, set off 
for trekking in the Gokyu region. There are many things to explore here and 
incredible views to be enjoyed. One of the most panoramic views which you 
can have is by climbing to Gokyo Ri. Indeed, Gokyo trek is one of the most 
popular trekking routes in the region. Gokyo Peak is situated at a height of 
5357m and is located just beside the Ngozumpa Glacier, famous for being the 
largest glacier in Nepal as well as the entire Himalayas. It will take you 
anywhere from 2 to 3 hours to reach the peak. Once you are there, the 
enchanting views of Cho Oyu, Gyaching Kang, Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, 
Cholatse and Twachee promise to make your day. You can decide to take the 
route towards the valley. Along the way, you will pass through several peaks 
which are truly a visual spectacle to come across. Overnight stay in Gokyo.

GOKYO CHO GAYUMA-DZONGLA-LOBUCHE

Today’s trek begins with the descent from Gokyo and passes through the 
second lake. Between the first and second lakes which lie along the route, 
the trail leads across the moraine to the east. Here, you will pass Cho La, 
also known as Chhugyuma. It is a summit pass located at a height of 5420m in 
the Solukhumbu district, and connects the village of Dzongla in the east to 
Thagnak in the west. The pass is steep and also involves a glacier crossing 
on the eastern side. You will have to utilize various equipments for 
negotiating the small icefall located at the foot of the glacier including 
ice axe, rope and crampons. The western approach to the pass, however, 
differs in degrees of difficulty. Under any circumstances, the pass is not 
suitable for the use of yaks and heavily laden porters. You will be spending 
a night at Chhugyuma and Dzongla on the other side of the pass. Your trek 
continues along the moraine, with views of Mt. Kala Patthar and Pumori. 
Finally, you reach Lobuche, a small settlement located in the Khumbu region 
of Nepal near to Mt. Everest. Located at a height of 4940m, it is used as a 
crossing route by sherpas and hundreds of porters. This will be the last 
stop for the day before you begin the climb for the base camp tomorrow. 
Rest, relax, recuperate and utilize this time for acclimatization. Overnight 
stay at Labouche.

DAY 12 – 13

 
 

DAY 14 – 15

LOBUCHE-GORAK SHEP-EVEREST BC-GORAK SHEP-LOBUCHE

Trekking in the Himalayas begins early in the morning. Since the trek begins 
quite early in the morning, you can expect it to be challenging and 
demanding, both physically and mentally. You will take the route which lies 
above Lobuche and runs alongside Khumbu Glacier. The terrain here is quite 
rough and steep, but full of adventure and excitement. Continue trekking 
till you reach Gorak Shep. Situated at a height of 5164m, it is a frozen 
lakebed covered with sand, and also the name of a small settlement situated 
on its edge. It serves as the final stop for most trekkers on their way to 
Everest Base Camp from Lukla. Here, you will take a short break to rest and 
recharge your body with fluids. After walking again for about an hour and a 
half, you finally reach Kala Patthar. Kala Patthar, which means black rock 
in Nepali language, is located on the southwest ridge of Pumori above Gorak 
Shep. It is a very famous landmark and the only place which provides the 
clearest and closest view of Mt. Everest. When you stop and take a look at 
the surroundings, you are instantly reminded that it is for moments such as 
these that you undertake trekking expeditions.  Apart from the heavenly 
views of Mt. Everest, you are also surrounded by enormous glaciers. On the 
south lies the Khumbu glacier, while the north is marked by several mountain 
peaks including Lho La (At a height of 6006m, it is the lowest point of the 
west ridge of Mt. Everest). It is interesting to know that Mt. Everest was 
recognised as the highest peak on earth in 1852 and was named Everest in 
honor of Sir George Everest, who was a British surveyor and geographer. 
After spending some time taking in the beauty of this place, return to 
Lobuche. Stay overnight at Lobuche.

LOBUCHE-TENGBOCHE

Today’s trek promises to be less challenging than yesterday, although 
certainly not lacking in excitement and adventure. The route which you will 
follow today is located mostly on lower altitudes. It starts by following 
the wide alpine valley dressed in shrub junipers which is home to a small 
settlement called Phulung Karpo (enjoying an elevation of 4343m). Then, it 
makes its way to Pheriche. Pheriche is a small sleepy village located in the 
Khumbu region of eastern Nepal. There are several tea houses dotting this 
place, along with low stone buildings which mostly serve the purpose of 
summer settlement. The trek then continues to Orsho followed by Lower 
Pangboche (Pangboche is a village located in the Solukhumbu district of 
Nepal. There is a monastery inside the village which houses a Yeti scalp and 
hand. It is inhabited mainly by members of the Sherpa community). From here, 
make your way to Deboche (a village inhabited by members of the Sherpa 
community) before finally reaching Tengboche. The village of Tengboche, 
situated at a height of 3867m, is home to the Tengboche Monastery, the 
largest monastery in the Khumbu region. Situated on a ridge, the village is 
enveloped by colossal Himalayan peaks. Built in 1916 by Lama Gulu, the 
monastery is overlooked by the mountain peaks of Everest, Tawache, Lhotse, 
Nuptse, Ama Dablam and Thamserku. Surrounded by ancient mani stones, it is 
popular among tourists for its exquisite paintings which date back to the 
14th century. The tranquility in the monastery does much to uplift tired 
minds. You can explore the monastery and even meditate for a while, it it 
appeals to you. Overnight stay at Tengboche.

DAY 16

 
 

DAY 17

TENGBOCHE-NEPAL

The trail which you will follow on this day is not very different from the 
one you followed yesterday. It crosses a forest of juniper, rhododendron and 
fir, all the way to Phunki Tenga. Continue the trek by crossing the Dudh 
Kosi, which is followed by a steep ascension to Tashinga. Make a brief halt 
at Shanasa before returning to Namche Bazaar. Overnight stay at Namche.

NAMCHE-THAME-NAMCHE

Your day starts with a healthy breakfast, a perfect start to a perfect day. 
After enjoying your breakfast, set off for a hiking trip of three hours to 
explore the village of Thamel. Located in the Solukhumbu district of Nepal, 
this village, so many other villages in this region, is inhabited by members 
of the Sherpa community. One of the most famous Sherpa mountaineers in the 
world, Apa Sherpa, who holds the record for climbing Mt. Everest 21 times, 
also resides here. It is also interesting to know that this village was also 
the home of Tenzing Norgay, who, along with Sir Edmund Hillary, was the 
first man to climb Mount Everest. Here, you will visit the famous Thame 
monastery. The monastery is believed to have been built around 350 years 
ago, in the steep hillside, and was built at the same time as the other 
monasteries in the region like Pangboche, Rimijung and Kerok. This monastery 
is also famous for hosting the Mani Rimdu festival. After visiting the 
monastery, you can also explore the village and get a glimpse into the 
lifestyle of the people. Return back to Namche. Overnight stay at Namche.

DAY 18

 
 

DAY 19

NAMCHE-LUKLA

follow the route which goes downwards along Dudh Kosi. Then, after making 
one final ascent, you will reach the Lukla plateau by mid-afternoon. After

celebrate the fact that you have completed the trek. Overnight stay at 
Lukla.
