Everest Base Camp is probably the best trekking destination in the world. So it will be dream trek for adventure lovers. Start from Kathmandu, we fly up to Lukla for the Everest Base Camp Trek starts from here, and we begin our adventure landing at this tiny airstrip. The next few days are spent trekking through the heartland of the Sherpa people. Passing Buddhist monasteries with the view of Everest getting closer everyday. We will have rest days in the villages of Namche and Dingboche. This will allow us to explore the region and to acclimatize, which is very important. During the Everest trek, our goal is to summit the Kala Pattar (5545m), which is higher than Everest Base Camp, with splendid views of Nuptse and Everest.

After trekking to Kala Pattar, we return at a relaxed pace back to Namche Bazar and Lukla respectably for our flight back to Kathmandu. For the more adventurous there is an option of returning over the Cho La pass to the Gokyo valley, and then ascending Gokyo Ri on the Everest Base Camp Trek, we provide the best lodges run by Sherpa families. Glance Himalaya will highly recommend Everest Base Camp Trek for those guest who want to spent adventure holiday in Nepal Himalaya.

Fly Kathmandu to Lukla, trek to Phadking (2700m)

We have a scenic flight of 30 – 35 minutes to Lukla (2800m) from Kathmandu. In Lukla you can see the airline office and numerous lodges. The trail from Lukla leads you to Chablung (2700) and it descends steeply to the Tharo Kosi which is also known as Kusum Kangru Khola (river). Beyond the Tharo Kosi Bridge, the trail climbs to Ghat (2590) and again climbs to Phadking. In Phadking you can climb to the gompa to see the view of the high peaks.

Phadking to Namche Bazaar (3420m)

From Phadking the trail follows the Dudh Koshi River and reaches Zamphuti. From here you can see excellent views of Thamserku peak. Then the trail climbs to Chomoa, the site of an agricultural project. From Chomoa, the trail again climbs to Monjo (2840m) and enters the Sagarmatha (Everest) National Park (1148sq km, established in 1976). Walking some distance up you will be at Jorsale (2830m) and after a long climb where you have the view of Mt. Everest peeking over the ridge of Nuptse (7879m) the trail reaches the street of Namche Bazaar.

Acclimatization in Namche (3420)

After having breakfast take some sightseeing around Namche Bazaar. Then you can hike to the Everest View Hotel, the ideal place to overview some of the outstanding mountains such as Mt. Everest, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, Lhotse etc. You can walk around the Khumjung valley, Hillery School and Khunde Hospital and then return back to Namche. In the centre of Namche you can visit the mountaineering museum and visit the Sagarmata Pollution Control Committee (SPCC). In Namche Bazaar you can spend some time interacting with the fun-loving Sherpa and Rai people. In Namche above the police checkpost you will see Sagarmatha National Park headquarters and if you want to look at the visitor centre it is open from 8am to 4pm except Saturdays and holidays.

Namche to Tengboche (3850m)

From Namche Bazaar the trail climbs up and down to Sanasa where the trail descends gradually to Teshinga and then it drops steeply to Phunki Thanga. Climbing two hours from Phunki Thanga you will reach Tengboche. Tengboche is a religious place for the Sherpa people and the entire Solukhumbu area. Here you will see the Tengboche Monastery which is one of the oldest monasteries in Nepal.
6

Tangboche to Dingoche (4360m)

In the morning our route ascends gradually, high above the Imja Khola, passing the teahouses at Orsho before crossing the Imja Khola and old glacial moraines to our lodge in the settlement of Dingboche. The scenery is spectacular, although Everest has disappeared behind the Lhotse-Nuptse ridge, the huge peaks that tower above the eastern end of the valley are ample compensation. We are now almost completely above the treeline. In clear conditions, look out for spectacular sunsets here and on Ama Dablam. Today’s walk is quite tiring due to the altitude so it is important to take notice of your leader’s advice and recommendations regarding rest and fluid intake.

Dingboche Rest

Dingboche is a beautiful patchwork of small fields enclosed by stone walls protecting the crops of barley and potatoes from the cold winds. It is occupied mainly through the monsoon months, when large numbers of yaks are brought here to graze on the valley pastures. Behind our lodge the huge rock faces of Taweche seem to soar to the heavens. Your leader will advise on activities today; the short excursion up the valley towards Chukung is worthwhile. The views are fantastic in this valley; the towering south face of Lhotse to the north, Island Peak in the centre of the valley, and the fluted ice-walls of unnamed peaks that line the southern end of the valley form a hauntingly beautiful sight. The other option which is better for acclimatising, is a hike up the hill behind our lodge will afford great views of the fifth highest mountain in the world, Makalu (8481m).
8

Dingboche to Lobuche (4930m)

In the morning we ascend the small ridge behind the village above the Pheriche valley. From the Chorten at the top, Taweche and Cholatse (6440m) make for a striking scene as they seem to lean forwards from across the valley in the west. To the north, Lobuche Peak (6119m) and the snowfields of the Cho La dominate the skyline. The walking is now generally fairly flat on wide-open fields, but do take your time and ensure you are well hydrated. Late in the morning we cross the Khumbu Khola at Dughla (4620m) and take a light lunch at the foot of the huge terminal moraines of the Khumbu Glacier flowing off Everest. In the afternoon, there is a solid and quite steep climb on a rocky trail to the top of the moraine. On the crest of the ridge, you pass a line of memorial cairns, built in memory of the Sherpas and climbers who have died on various Everest expeditions over the last 50 years. From here the view is spectacular, Pumori (7145m) Lingtren (6697m), Khumbutse (6623m), and across the border in Tibet, Changtse (7550m) are seen at the head of the valley, whilst Everest is hidden behind the towering walls of Nuptse and Lhotse. We then follow the valley stream to our lodge at Lobuche, arriving early afternoon. Today is a tiring day but the fantastic scenery makes it all very valuable.

Everest Base Camp and Kala Patter (5160m)

After an early rise, we have a short trek to Gorak Shep where we will have breakfast and some tea before beginning the walk up to Kala Pattar. (5545m)A gradual ascent enables you to build the slow, steady rhythm required when walking at high altitude. From the lodge the ascent is quite steep, so start very slowly and try to ascend at steady rhythmic pace. Our goal Kala Pattar, is the rocky hilltop below Pumori. It is a tough walk, but the view from the top surpasses the wildest imagination. It will probably take a good hour and a half to reach the summit from Gorak Shep, although lower viewpoints will provide views almost as good. Pumori, Nuptse, Changtse, Ama Dablam, Taweche, Kantega and Everest – the highest mountain in the world, and some 200 metres below, the area of the Everest Base Camp can be seen in a bowl at the bottom of the Khumbu Ice Fall. For many trekkers, reaching Kala Pattar is a very emotional experience and it is worthwhile spending as long as you wish to savour this special moment. The descent back down to Gorak Shep is easy, Upon arrival in our lodge in Lobuche, hot tea will be waiting and a short time later our evening meal.
10

Lobuche to Pangboche (3875m)

From Lobuche we re-trace our steps to Dughla, it seems much quicker and easier going down From here we take a different route from our ascent, following the wide alpine valley covered in scrub juniper through to the temporary settlement of Phulung Karpo (4343m), and then to Pheriche.There is also a Trekkers’ Aid Post here, supported by the Himalayan Rescue Association which, although not manned year round, is well worth a visit if open. From Pheriche we cross the Khumbu Khola and ascend a short steep trail to the top of a small ridge for great views of the Imja valley, Ama Dablam and Kantega. We then descend to the small settlements at Orsho and Shomare, and then to Lower Pangboche to our Lodge.
11

Pangboche to Namche Bazar

After breakfast we descend steeply through beautiful forest of juniper, rhododendron and fir to Tyanboche and then down again to Phunkitenga. After a welcome break and perhaps a cup of tea we cross the Dudh Kosi, and ascend to Trashinga. From here the trail contours high above the valley through Sanasa, before returning to Namche Bazaar where we spend the night.
