In other hand bad weather conditions can also ruin the whole adventures. So, we say

"Get prepared first and enjoy the adventure without worrying"

The very next day we will start our journey and fly to Lukla which approximately takes 30 minutes. Lukla will be our first step towards Khumbu region where your porter will be waiting to welcome you (only if you booked from the beginning). There everything will be setup from the beginning such as breakfast/ lunch in the lovely Lukla tea house. Near Khumbu or Everest region, Lukla is one of the most developed villages where almost every modern facilities are available.

From here, you will be entertained by the company of warm Sherpa's habitat, their local agricultural farms, and Yaks. To land on Phakding village, we will be following the trails of Dudh Koshi river and then Thado-Khola route. On the way, we can see the clear view of Mt. Kusum Kangaru.

Day 03: Starting 12km trek towards magnificent market Namche Bazaar [3, 440 mt. / 11286FT], estimated walk 6 - 7 hours.

Our next stop will be very popular Namche Bazaar. Namche Bazaar is the gateway to the Everest Base Camp and the most developed town available in Everest region. Now, we need to cross the Dudh Koshi river multiple times to move forward so we will be taking help of high suspension bridges. We will be passing through Monjo Village and after trekking for a while we will reach the entrance gate of Everest National Park. There your trekking permit will be checked. Everest National Park was formed to protect and conserve the beautiful environment of Himalayas region. After continuing the trekking forward, you will have your first sight on Mt. Everest on a clear day. The trekking path still offers the numerous view of mountains such as Mt.Thameserku, Mt. Kusum Kangaru, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Tawache etc. Finally, after conquering a long uphill trail, you will have the colorful vision of beautiful Namche Bazaar.

Day 04: A day to acclimatize and explore Namche Bazaar and a small visit to Everest view point.

Once we reach the Namche Bazaar, the whole day is allocated for you to acclimatize with high altitude. Make sure you are relaxed and ready to take the upcoming challenges. You can have a chat with your guide regarding how to spend your leisure time. Normally, guides suggest you pay a small visit to Everest View Point Hotel. From there you can easily get the view of multiple mountains at a time. Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Thamserku, Mt. Kusum Kangaru & Amadablam comes under the radar of View Point Hotel. Still, you got some time to spare then there is a local Sherpa museum where you can know about the cultures, ancient instrument, histories and much more.

Day 05: Destination Tengboche [3,800 mt. / 12,467FT] estimated distance 10 km, estimated walk 5 - 6 hours.

After a peaceful day at Namche Bazaar, we will set our target towards Tengboche. In the early morning, we will have our breakfast in the lodge and continue towards our journey. Tengboche is also a popular place in Everest region. The reason for its fame is ancient Buddhist monasteries where most of the visitors come to do the Yoga and peaceful meditation. Not only that, from Tengboche you can enjoy the spectacular view of the sun setting on the Himalaya mountains. It is also considered that Tengboche is one of the best places where its beauty is shined from the glaze of Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Amadablam and much more.

Day 06: Destination Dingboche [4,400 mt. / 14,435FT] estimated distance 8 km, estimated walk 5 - 6 hours.

Next stop will be Dingboche. Dingboche is a small valley surrounded by hills. In fact, it is the gateway to the Island Peak Climbers - it is one of the most popular trekking peaks in the Himalayas and in Nepal. The path to reach Dingboche is not easy because most of the paths are uphill and difficult but will be fine to follow. Dingboche is a moderately populated village where you can find numerous lodges of normal to high standards. You can almost found modern foods from normal to continental. To reach Dingboche it may take 4-5 hours of trekking but once we get there, the warm lodges will be waiting for welcoming you.

Day 07: A day to explore Dingboche and acclimatize for further journey.

Full day in Dingboche is to acclimatize your health and prepare yourself for upcoming high altitudes. You can consult with your guide to spend your leisure time. If you still got time to spare then you can pay a short visit to Chukung Village. Chukung is a beautiful small village and resides on the road to Island peak. Or you can stay in your Hotel and prepare for you tomorrow.

Day 08: Destination Lobuche [4,900 mt. / 16,076FT] estimated distance 10 km, estimated walk 4 - 5 hours.

Now, the altitude will start to increase on the way towards Lobuche. The uphill trail and high altitude make the path bit difficult. The reason you will encounter graveyard on the way. The graveyard is the memorial of the climbers of the mountains of Everest region but mostly of the Everest climbers. Lobuche is a place which is used by many trekkers to acclimatize their altitude sickness. Staying here helps to overcome the altitude of Kalapatthar and Everest Base Camp.

Day 09: Destination Gorakshep [5,130 mt. / 16,830FT] and a refreshing hike to Everest Base Camp [5,316 mt. / 17,440FT] and again back to the destination, estimated distance 15-17 km, estimated walk 8 - 9 hours

After a night at Lobuche, we will set our goal towards Gorakshep. In the morning we will have our warm breakfast and gather energy for long trekking. The path becomes scarier and dangerous from this point onwards because we may have to walk on moraine of glaciers. We will also have to walk along the side of Khumbu Glacier, which is even known as one of the giant glaciers of the world. Along with the dangerous walk, the altitude starts to increase because of thin air. Even though we may have to go through these difficulties, we may get relief by the marvelous close views of mountains like Mt. Everest, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Pumori, Mt. Amadablam and many other small mountain peaks.

When we reach Everest Base Camp, we may see a number of gravestones in the memories of the dead climbers. The reason for a huge number of death in Everest region is because sometimes the trails lead to false way due to the movements of glaciers and heavy snowfall. The camp may get crowded at the peak season. Once we fully enjoy the base camp, we will head back to Gorakshep again which make take the same 2-3 hour of trekking.

Day 10: Finally step towards the top of Kalapatthar [5,545 mt. / 18,192FT] and then to the Pangboche [4,350mt. / 14,271FT], estimated distance 18 - 20 km, estimated walk 9 - 10 hours.

Today we will make our trek towards Kalapatthar. We will move in the morning because once we reach there we can enjoy the breathtaking view of the beautiful sunrise over the mountains. The last place to be in our trekking journey. Mountains of Khumbu will be just in front of you. The reason to name it Kalapatthar because there are only big black rocks. On the top of the Kalapatthar, you may think of being in the place you only dreamt of. From there when viewing the Everest, people usually call Everest a shy mountain. Because the view shows Everest hiding in between 2 mountains. Once we finish our trek to Kalapatthar, we will start our trek towards Pheriche through the trails of Gorakshep. At the time of returning the path will be downhill and easy as the altitude will also start to decrease. But our goal will be to reach Pangboche to make the night stay. This day we will walk 9-10 hours to cover our destination.

Day 11: Destination Namche Bazar [4,900 mt. / 11286FT] estimated distance 15 km, estimated walk 6 - 7 hours.

We will have out breakfast in the morning and will start out journey towards Namche Bazaar via the trails of Dudh Koshi River. The view of the mountain will be with us throughout the trek. We will move forward through the paths of Mong-La. We will have to walk for 6-7 hours to reach to Namche Bazaar and to the Monju village where we will be spending our nights.

Day 12: Back to Lukla [2,850 mt. / 9,350FT] estimated distance 20 km, estimated walk 4 - 5 hours.

Next morning we will have our lunch and then will move towards Lukla via Phakding. We will be taking the same path which we took for the first and second day to move up.
