Trip Overview

Trekking on paths that were once trodden by legends as we hike the old highway to the foot of the mightiest peak in the world.. Mount Everest.

This twenty three day adventure from Jiri to the Everest Base Camp via Gokyo / Tshola is one of the most outstanding journeys Nepal has to offer, taking you from the least traveled to the most popular trekking route in the Khumbu region. This trek has a number of stunning attractions, including trekking through the Solu area, visiting the charming villages of Junbesi and Ringmo, and traversing the great Lamjura pass filled with excellent views of the high, snow-capped peaks. Other attractions include the spectacular scenery of the Himalayan ranges, the prevalent Buddhist culture, and the pristine forest of rhododendron and pine, all the while making friends as you pass through traditional rural farming villages. The Everest trek involves a great deal of uphill and downhill walking and gives you an opportunity to observe the daily activities of the local people and their traditional way of life that has been preserved and practiced for thousand of years. This trip also gives you a chance to climb Kalapathar, the highest point reached on this trek and one of its highlights, which offers breathtaking panoramic scenery of the giant, snowy mountains and of Mt. Everest, which seems to be a stone’s throw away. After a memorable time in the high valleys and mountains, a smooth, sweeping flight brings you back to Kathmandu.

We ascend first to the ridge-top, then the path drops to Shivalaya. We cross several villages including Sangbadanda, Kosaribas, Bhanjyang and finally reach Bhandar. The trek is very pleasant today and lasts for about six hours.

Day 5: Trek from Bhandar to Sete(2985m)
The trail first drops down to LikhuKhola and then onto Kenja. We then start to climb towards Lamjura hill on a trail that climbs quite steeply at first, after which it crosses Sete and an old stupa.

Day 6: Trek from Sete to Junbesi (2700m)
There is a long climb in the beginning but the views and the experience are worth it. You’ll see rhododendrons blossoming in the spring and cross the highest point till Namche Bazaar. Descending to Tragdobuk, we reach the Sherpa village of Junbesi.

Day 7: Trek from Junbesi to Nunthala(2194m)
During the first hours of the trek, Everest starts to appear in the horizon. We cross a hospital and an airstrip at Phaplu followed by a market at Salleri. Descending towards the RingmoKhola, we start to make our way to the village of Ringmo. Built in the 80s, the trail between Ringmo and Namche Bazaar dodges steeper climb of the old route.

Day 11: Trek from Phakding to Namche Bazaar(3440m)
On this day, we trek uphill to Namche Bazaar, also called the Gateway to Everest. We crisscross DudhKoshi over several trail bridges that are beautifully decorated with Buddhist prayer flags fluttering in the wind. We rest to learn about the SagarmathaNatinoal Park and how it has helped upkeep the region’s ecological and social integrity while promoting tourism. The climb to Namche is well rewarded with a bustling market and native culture, and of course the majestic views of the Himalayas up close.

Day 12: Acclimatization at Namche Bazaar
We need to keep up with the altitude gain and let our body adjust to the thinner air pressure, for which we rest at Namche Bazaar on this day to acclimatize. The town has lots to offer to its visitors, from the celebrated museum showcasing from the history of Everest expeditions to the lifestyle of Sherpas. We will explore the area and see how the locals, mostly Sherpas, go about their daily lives. If time permits, there is the option of hiking to the nearby (decommissioned) Syanboche Airport for stunning views of the Everest Panorama.

Day 13: Trek from Namche Bazaar to Tengboche(3860m)
When we have sufficiently acclimatized at Namche, we start trekking to Tengboche, the home to the immensely popular Tengboche Monastery. We reach the town by making our way up the trails and along the shores of DudhKoshi River. Photo-perfect views of the mountains mark this trail. At Tengboche, we will explore the monastery, which hosts a massive statue of Buddha amidst elaborately decorated interior. We’ll have a chance to observe monks dressed in traditional Buddhist clothes chanting prayers in exotic ceremonies. From Tengboche, we will also marvel in the jaw-dropping panoramic views of the Everest region – the top of the world!

Day 14: Trek from Tengboche to Dingboche (4410m)
Following the trail down to Debuche, we cross the Imja River and then walk uphill to Pangboche. On the way you can enjoy innumerable mani stones before you finally reach Dingboche, which is a traditional Sherpa village and sports fabulous panoramic views of the Himalayas. Since we gain some altitude at this point, we walk at an easy speed.

Day 15: Acclimatization at Dingboche. Hike to Chhukung(4730m)
Today is a rest day at Dinboche for acclimatization. We go for a hiking at Chhukung at a comfortable pace to prepare for higher altitude the following day.

Day 16: Trek from Dingboche to Lobuche(4910)
As we walk away from Dingboche, the trails lead us along Khumbu Glacier’s lateral moraine and we can also see a memorial for mountaineers who lost their lives on expeditions. After some five hours of trekking, we get to Lobuche, which stands at 4,910m right next to the Lobuche peak.

Day 17: Trek from Lobuche to GorakShep(5140m), via hike to Everest Base Camp(5364m)
We carefully tread on the Khumbu Glacier up to the Everest Base Camp at 5,365m. Note that this is the farthest you can get towards Everest summit without mountaineering gear. We spend some time to admire the Himalayas at its finest glory, a reward well earned for your hard work. After EBC, we head backtoGorakShep.

Day 18: Trek from GorakShep to Periche, via hike to Kalapatthar (5545m)
On this day, we hike to the Kala Patthar (a small peak at 5,555m), which has arguably the best panoramic view of the Everest range. The climb is steep and rugged, but given our trekking accomplishment, we reach the peak in no time. From Kalapatthar, we see Everest, Pumori, Nuptse, Chagatse, Lhotse and several other peaks that make up the Everest range. We then head back to GorakShep, then on to Periche.

Day 19: Trek from Periche to Namche Bazaar
From Periche, we take an alternative route to Namche Bazaar. We first head to Orsho, followed by Pangboche. En route, we see the oldest monastery in the region which houses alleged remains of a Yeti. Heading farther south descending down the trails takes us to Tengboche before we finally reach Namche Bazaar at 3,441m after a five-hour trek.

Day 20: Trek from Namche Bazaar to Lukla, via Phakding
We bid the mountains farewell as we head to Lukla via Phakding, our original starting point for trekking. We are able to cover more distance on our way back because the route is mostly a descent and at a relatively lower altitude, our lungs get more oxygen and hence, energy. Once in Lukla, the evening is free for leisure activities. We’ll celebrate our success with a few rounds of drinks and some traditional dancing with the locals.

Day 21: Lukla to Kathmandu flight
Today, we fly back to Kathmandu from Lukla, during which we get to enjoy birds-eye view of the marvelous mountains beneath. Once at the Kathmandu airport, you will be transferred to your hotel by Hike Himalaya staff on a private vehicle.

Day 22: Leisure day and farewell dinner in Kathmandu
This day is free for rest and relaxation, spending some reflecting on the trek. Leisure activities like souvenir shopping, spa and more exploration of the city are definite options. You may also wish to extend your trip to include bungee jumping, rafting, Everest mountain flight and so forth. Later in the evening, you will be invited for a farewell dinner at a typical Nepalese restaurant, which will host cultural shows.
