Detailed Itinerary 

DAY 1: Arrive At Kathmandu

Meet with our team at the Tribhuvan International Airport who will escort you to the pre-booked hotel in Thamel, commercial neighbourhood of Kathmandu.  Later in the day, engage with your trekking guides and sherpas in a brief meeting scheduled beforehand. In the evening, head out to explore the tourist markets of Thamel that have streets racked up with trekking gear sold at cheap prices.

DAY 2: Kathmandu-Lukla-Phakding (2,652m/8,700ft) (30-35 minute flight and 4 hours walk)

Wake up to a beautiful morning. You will be escorted to the domestic terminal of Kathmandu airport to board a flight from Lukla (2,800 m). It will take you half an hour to reach Tenzing-Hillary Airport at Lukla- a gateway destination. You can feast your eyes on the beautiful environs of the terrain. Upon arrival at Lukla airport, meet with the other trekking members and head with them for a hearty breakfast at the lodge. At this point, luggage will be readied for the porters.

Shortly, set out for a walk towards Bhaisekharka- make your way through ‘Mani’ prayer rocks on the stone paved trails of Lukla. The rustic rural scenes are refreshing for trekkers that will find the scenery exhilarating.

This short hike is done for jumpstarting the process of acclimatization, essential for a high-altitude trek such as this. Reach Phakding also known as the “lodge-city” and rest awhile or explore the monasteries on the west side of the river. Stay overnight in one of the lodges in Phakding.

DAY 3: Trek from Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3,440m/11,283ft),(5-6 hours walk)

Post a scrumptious breakfast in Phakding, set out on the trail that leads you to the first suspension bridge of this trek. You will face an easy uphill through Zapute, Toktok, Benkar, Chumoa to Monju- a gateway to Sagarmatha National Park. The entire hike is filled with little tea-houses and shops. You will have to fill a few formalities at the National Park entrance. This is followed by a steep drop in the trail that leads further to the long suspension bridge across Dudh Koshi river. Keep walking to the high Hillary Bridge at the bottom of the hill. Crossing this bridge would lead you to Namche Bazaar -the first major stop off point for trekkers headed to Everest. This uphill trail will give you the first breathtaking view of Mt. Everest hidden behind Lhotse-Nuptse and Mt. Kusum Khangru.

Stay overnight at a lodge in Namche Bazaar.

DAY 4: Namche Bazaar- a day for acclimatization

Today is the first day of some serious acclimatization. Namche Bazaar is a great stop for window shopping and doing all things touristy. Experts recommend physical activity instead of sitting at one place. You will either visit Thame, an old sherpa village or Khumjung village. Both these options are great for an acclimatization hike that render wonderful sightings of Mt. Everest as well as surrounding snow-clad peaks. You can visit National Park Head Office, museum and monastery. You can also choose to spend time in cafes, shops, bakeries and restaurants at Namche Bazaar. Stay overnight in a lodge in Namche Bazaar.

This trail is a rhododendron trail and you can spot some Himalayan wildlife including musk deer, multi-colored pheasants and Himalayan Thar.
