Details Itinerary

Day 01: Arrive in Kathmandu via respective airlines then- Check-In to your Hotel.
On arrival our staff will receive and transfer you to respective Hotels.

Day 02-04: Preparation of the expeditions:
These days will be used obtaining necessary paper works and documents with the Sherpa staff, making of the climbing permits, Visa and a visit to the Ministry of Tourism for Official briefings.

Day 05: Fly from Kathmandu to Lukla and trek to Phakding 2,650m 3-4 hrs.
Transfer to the domestic airport for one of the great flights of the Himalaya.
If the sky is clear during the flight, one can get the first views of the Mt.Everest.
The Twin-Otter / Dronier or similar aircraft will take to the hillside village of Lukla,
the starting point of the trek.   Here meet the staff and the porters and set off straight away for Phakding, situated on the banks of the Dudh Kosi River, which drains the whole of the Khumbu.

Day 06: Trek to Namche Bazaar 3,440m 5-6 hrs.
Walk continues up the banks of the Dudh Kosi River, crossing it twice by small suspension bridges, before reaching the village of Monjo, which is the entrance to the Khumbu National Park. Then cross the confluence of the Dudh Kosi and Bhote Kosi rivers on a high suspension bridge and climb steeply for about two hours to Namche Bazaar. This is a prosperous trading town and is the capital of the Khumbu region. Many Tibetans cross the nearby border to trade their wares and the local market is a fascinating spectacle. This is a good place to buy genuine Tibetan artifacts. Just across the valley to the east stand the peaks of Thamserku and Kangtega, both very impressive mountains.

Day 07:A day in Namche Bazaar.
Rest and at leisure allowing the bodies to become more acclimatized to the altitude of 11,300ft /3,440m.

Day 08: Trek to Thyangboche 3,867m 4-5 hrs.
The well worn Everest trail contours around the side of the valley high above the Dudh Kosi, with good views of the great peaks of the Khumbu including – Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and Ama Dablam and then passing several villages and numerous tea shops, descending steeply to a bridge over the Dudh Kosi. The village on the far side is an excellent lunch spot and here one can rest a little before making the steep climb to Thyangboche. Although tiring, the 2 hours haul up the zig-zag path has numerous distractions, with rhododendron bushes, beautiful birds and superb mountain scenery. Thyangboche is famous for its monastery, the largest in the Khumbu. It was completely destroyed by fire (an elderly monk tried to put out his new electric fire by pushing it face down onto the floor!) but it has now been rebuilt and is as grand as ever.

Day 09: Trek to Pheriche 4,230m 4-5 hrs.
Descending steeply through woods, cross the Imja Khola and climb steadily to the village of Pangboche. This is directly opposite Ama Dablam, and is a good place to stop for lunch.  Pheriche is a good two hours walk beyond and is situated beneath the impressive spires of Cholatse and Taweche.

Days 10: Acclimatization period.
Using Pheriche as the base, spend a day hiking for the sake of health fitness and adaptation to the altitude.

Day 11: Trek to Lobuje 4,900m. 4-5 hrs.
Continue up the wide valley beneath the impressive peaks of Cholatse and Taweche on the left, then turn right and climb more steeply towards the foot of the Khumbu Glacier. The tea house at Dughla (Thugla) is a good lunch spot, before the steep climb zig-zagging up through the boulders of the glacier terminal moraine. The top of this climb is heralded by numerous stone cairns- memorable to the many Sherpa who have died while climbing on Mount Everest. The path then continues more easily on the left side of the glacier, to eventually reach the cluster of tea houses at Lobuje.

Day 12: Trek to Gorak Shep 5,180m 2-3 hrs.
Continue along the side of the Khumbu Glacier which is straight forward at first, but later the path becomes rocky and awkward climb across the moraine. This is more than compensated by the fabulous mountain setting as the path get closer to the world’s highest mountain. The sugar loaf dome of Pumori lies directly ahead and to our right, on the opposite side of the glacier, Nuptse rises in a sheer spire. Just behind it, remaining elusive to the last moment is the Mt. Everest.  Gorak Shep is another small cluster of tea shops and will be camping just below them. Directly above the camp site is Kala Pattar [18,188ft/5,545m.].  This is a famous view-point for Mount Everest and the 1½ hour scramble to reach; it is well worth the effort.

Day 13: Trek to Base Camp 5,360m. 3-4 hrs.
Climbing over the mounds of moraine traverse the Khumbu Glacier and follow a vague path to the most famous of all Base Camps. It lies right at the foot of the notorious Khumbu Ice Fall which tumbles from the Western Cwm. The Base Camp will be already well established and you can find out how the Advance Party is progressing in the Ice-fall.

Day 14-38: (25 days) Ascent of Mount Everest and withdrawal to Base Camp.
It is hoped that the Khumbu Ice-fall will be fixed by the time the team arrives at the Base Camp. Members can then start load-carrying to Camp I and Camp II, in the Western Cwm. Once everyone is well acclimatized, Camp I will be mostly by-passed en-route for Camp II, which will become an Advance Base Camp. The route to this point will involve crossing the crevasses on ladders, jumaring up serac walls and a long tedious plod-up the Western Cwm. Camp III will be placed half way up the Lhotse Face at about 7,400 meters high. From here a long rising traverse across the snow slopes, a yellow band of rock and the Geneva Spur, leads to the South Col and Camp IV. This will be fully established before a rest period at Base Camp.

Day 36, 37, 38: All team-members are to re-group at the Base Camp
To assist with packing-up the expedition and clearing the Base Camp areas.
