    Moderate

    Moderate trekking involves 5 – 6 hours a day walking at a steady pace below 4000 meters for around 10 days trekking trip.

Everest trek takes you along one of the greatest trekking trails on Earth. You follow the famous Everest trail from Lukla up to Namche Bazaar, “capital” of the Sherpa people of the high Himalaya. You then continue up the trail to the village of Tengboche and its wonderful Buddhist monastery in the heart of the Sagarmatha National Park. The Tengboche Monastery is the perfect place to learn about Buddhist beliefs and rituals while also experiencing the grandeur of the Himalayan Mountains. Tengboche is a fantastic vantage point from where you can see the summits of Mount Everest, Nuptse and Lhotse and almost reach out and touch beautiful mountains such as twin-peaked Ama Dablam and nearby Kantega and Thamserku. The walking on this trek is easy and the altitude not too demanding – a fantastic way to explore this wonderful part of Nepal and the Himalaya Mountains.

After your refreshment you will be picked up from your hotel lobby and driven to our Thamel office where you will be formally introduced to your trekking guide. We will go through all your trek itinerary and arrangements with you to insurer every detail is in place. We will also ask to bring your passport, extra passport photographs and a copy of your travel insurance so that we can organize permits required for your trek in the Sagarmatha National Park.

     

  • Day 2
    Flight Kathmandu to Lukla and commence Trek to Phakding, Overnight in trekking lodges (2,610m)

    We will transfer you from your hotel to the domestic airport to catch the very scenic flight to Lukla, just south of the entrance to the Sagarmartha National Park and the Mount Everest region. The flight is brief and takes only about thirty minutes.  Once in Lukla and all your packs and equipment are organized you will start your trek with the walk northwards along the Dudh Kosi River valley to the village of Phakding and its impressive suspension bridge over the river far below. At this stage the scenery is a well vegetated and impressively large river valley with glimpses to the north of the towering snow-capped Himalayan peaks that await you

  • Day 3
    Phakding to Namche Bazaar , Overnight in trekking lodges (3,440m)

    The first stage of the walk takes you across the river and to the village of Monjo and the actual entrance to the Sagarmatha National Park. Your guide will handle all the formalities of ensuring you are carrying the necessary permit to enter the national park.  All necessary permits will have been arranged for you following your visit to our head office a day or two earlier. The second stage takes you upwards from 3,440m altitude Namche Bazaar - so a very substantial altitude gain of over 1,600m is achieved in this stage - so just take it slow and steady up the many steps to Namche Bazaar and enjoy the scenery and beautiful mountain summit vistas deeper in the national park. 

  • Day 4
    Acclimatization day in Namche Bazaar overnight in trekking lodges (3,440m)

    Since you will now be at quite a significant altitude you must let your physiology adapt the the thinner atmosphere and reduced oxygen levels.  This is an essential step in the proper management of the risk of altitude sickness.  Your guide will personally instruct you on what to do during the day and how best to acclimatise and how to identify any early symptoms of altitude sickness.  There is plenty to see and do in Namche Bazaar itself and in the immediate surrounding area.  So taking a rest day can be an interesting and fun day too. Talk with your guide about visiting places such as the famour Edmond Hillary School established to assist the Sherpa community and residents of the region.  Or perhaps pay a visit to the beautiful Everest View Hotel - the view of the Mount Everest summit can be inspiring for the next days of your trek.

  • Day 5
    Namche Bazaar to Tengboche overnight in trekking lodges (3,860m)

    Today you will head a little higher and closer to Everest Base Camp. Your walk will take you via one of the many scenic trails to the very important village of Tengboche and its world famous Tengboche Monastery. Take your time and enjoy the gorgeous mountains along the trail.  Look for the very distinctive twin-peak summits of Mount Ama Dablam and the towering snow and ice-capped mass of Mount Thamserku.  This walks takes about five hours to complete and the last section brings you up to the distinctive gates of Tengboche village.  Take the time to visit the monastery. Your guide will explain some of the history of the facility, its significance to the Sherpa community and its importance to Buddhism. Then get some rest for the next stages of your trek.

  • Day 6
    Tengboche to Khumjung , overnight in trekking lodges (3,780m)

    Trek from Tengbocheto Khumjung the trail drops steeply to the river at Phunki Thanga, and then rises again to traverse high above the river on the winding trail leading back to Namche Bazaar. Shortly after passing through Sanasa, we branch off to the right and take the trail leading gradually upwards to the extensive Sherpa settlement of Khumjung at 3790m. Khumjung is the the largest village in the Khumbu and contains many items of interest for the visitor - the Gompa possesses the supposed skull of a Yeti but this has been scientifically disproved. Also in Khumjung is the Hillary School, and further up the hill at the village of Khunde is the Khunde Hospital, built in 1966 and maintained by the Sir Edmund Hillary Himalayan Trust.

  • Day 7
    Khumjung to Monzo , overnight in trekking lodges (2,835m)

    The walkfrom Khumjung to Manjoo is through trail that weaves small elevating and descending valleys. The view of Everest is excellent along this trail. You will also see several mani stones stretching across the trail.

    Monzo to Lukla ,overnight in trekking lodges (2,840m)

    After breakfast, we continue our descent along the banks of the Dudh Kosi, before making a final ascent to reach the Lukla plateau by mid afternoon. En route we may make an optional excursion to a small monastery above the river near the ghat.

  • Day 9
    Lukla back to Kathmandu (1,300m)

    Your flight from Lukla will depart early in the morning and we will soon have you back in your Kathmandu hotel.
