Itinerary B = Breakfast, L = Lunch, D = Dinner

Day 01: Arrival in Kathmandu, Nepal. You will be met and assisted by a Nepal Guide Info Teams ( Nepal Planet Treks and Expedition )representative and transferred to 2/3 star hotel which is located close to the tourist district of Thamel and offers comfortable accommodation. Orientation meeting at approximately 5pm in the hotel lobby.
 
 
Day 02 : Kathmandu – Lukla (2880m) – Phakding (2740m).
Our early morning flight by Twin Otter aircraft rushes us to Lukla, the most renowned mountain airstrip in the world. On the flight we watch the rugged foothills give way to the snowline of the Himalaya; many of the world’s highest mountains, including Kanchenjunga, Lhotse and Makalu (the world’s 3rd, 4th, and 5th highest respectively) may sometimes be seen from the window of the plane. Once we are in Lukla Surprisingly, this high-altitude trek begins by descending to the river at Phakding.
 
Day 03 : Phakding – Namche (3445m).
The first day may have been surprisingly long for some, but stay at Phakding allows us to begin the ascent to Namche Bazaar first thing in the morning. At about half-way up the hill, a gap in the trees allows us to spy Everest for the first time. If the weather is clear the top of the South-West Face will be just visible behind the long Lhotse-Nuptse ridge. A plume can often be seen stretching away from the very summit.
Namche is the most prosperous and the largest town in the Khumbu. A bazaar is held here every Saturday. The wares on display include grains and vegetables, tennis shoes and trinkets as well as hand woven aprons and Tibetan boots. The Sherpas play host to trader from the foothills, as well as Tibetans from over the border. Thamserku (6648m), Kwangde Ri (6187m) and Khumbila (5707m) surround the natural bowl that Namche sits in.
 
 
Day 04: NAMCHE BAZZAR- THAME (3,800m) – NAMCHE BAZZAR:A day to acclimatize. We hike to Sangbuche for superb views of the snow peaks of Teng Kangpoche (6,500m) and Kwangde (6,187m). B
 
 
Day 05: TYANGBOCHE (3,800m):From Namche we trek to Khumjung at the foot of sacred Khumbila peak (5,761m). Khumjung Gompa possesses what is said to be the skull of a yeti! Continue to Phunki and Tyangboche monastery for one of the most magnificent views in the world; an awe inspiring panorama of Himalayan giants: Kwangde, Tawache, Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Kategna and Thamserku. B
Day 06 : DINGBOCHE (4,300m):Cross the Imja Khola and continue through terraced fields and rolling pastures where yaks graze to Pangboche (3,860m).
 
 
Day 07 : DINGBOCHE (4,300m): Rest day Rather than just sitting around in the tents or tea house, we encourage you to attempt one of two hikes. The shorter option ascends the hill immediately behind Dingboche, to drop steeply down to Periche. The Himalayan Rescue Association operates a medical post here and the western doctors conduct excellent seminars on Altitude Mountain Sickness (AMS) here on most afternoons or longer option is to trek up the Imja Tse valley towards Island Peak. The views of Lhotse, Ama Dablam / Chooyu from here are outstanding. After a few hours Chukung is reached, and after a rest return down the valley.
 
 
Day 08 : LOBUCHE (4,900m): The trail climbs through a grass carpeted valley to Khumbu Glacier and reaches Dughla – Lobuche. B
 
 
Day 09 : Lobuje – Kala Pattar (5545m) – Gorakshep.A long day and an early start. We trek along the rough path along the side of the Khumbu glacier to the tea shacks at Gorak Shep. Behind rises the attractive 7000m peak of Pumori which dwarfs our trek’s summit of Kala Pattar. The route up is straight forward and takes most people between 90 minutes and 2 hours. All the peaks – Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Changtse, Ama Dablam and scores of other lesser peaks can be seen from this wonderful vantage point.
 
 
Day 10 : EVEREST BASE CAMP (5,300m) Lobuche From the dry sandy area of Gorakshep, it is a day trek to the Everest Base Camp. Later return to Lobuche via Gorakshep.
