Sleeping at Gorakshep (5170 meters) and a day hiking through a rocky trail takes you to the base camp (5320mtr). Hanging around a wide moraine glacier, seeing massive mountains, Khumbu icefall, visiting the Camping site, taking pictures and feeling the taste of adventurous temperature then back to Gorakshep for overnight.

The next day's excursion up to Kalapatthar (5545mtr) will be very early in the morning before breakfast will be another heavenly beautiful hike. You will have wide and bright views of Mt. Everest from Kalapatthar as well as Mt. Lhotse, Pumori, Khumbutse, Nuptse, Lola, Amadablam, Gyachungkhang, Mt. Bharunche, Thanserku, Khangtega, and the longest Khumbu glacier.

Everest Base Camp and Kalapathar trekking begin KTM to Ramechhap car drive and a short flight from Ramechhap to Lukla or overland jeep drive from KTM to Sallery- Bupsa then by walking. The trail passes through the heartland of Sherpa, Lukla, Phakding, Monjo, Namche Bazaar, Tenboche, Pangboche, Dingboche, Chhukung, and Gorak Shep. Returning down along the same way and taking a morning flight or jeep drive back to Kathmandu.


Arrival at Tribhuwan international airport, greeting with flower garlands & transfer to Hotel. Overnight at the hotel in Kathmandu on B/B (bed and breakfast) planning basis.

During the high tourist season flights from kathmandu to Lukla is impossible. Most tourists get to drive in the middle of the night from Kathmandu to Manthali for the next day’s morning flight. But we recommend moving a day earlier from Kathmandu to nearby Manthali. That will provide the perfect countryside views of Nepal and also would not make the rush and uncomfortable drive.

The flight takes about 25 minutes from Manthali to Lukla. Collect your baggages and move to the hotel and get introduce with your trekking crews, make your breakfast then the trek begins gently to the left bank of Dudh Koshi River via Chaurikharka village, Kyangzoma, Thado koshi, Ghat and overnight at Phakding 2600mtr. 3-4 hours

We commence our trek to Namche Bazaar through the Dudh Koshi River bank. Today we will cross so many suspension bridges over the Dudh Koshi River. The zigzag trail leads us through Banker, Monjo to Jorsalle. Jorsalle is the check post of Sagarmatha national park and trekking permits. Thamserku, Kusumgaru, and Kwongde Mountain are visible all day long today. The Khumbila Peak is just standing over the Namche Bazzar. We follow the uphill trail from the riverbed of this V-shaped valley where the river forks Dudh Koshi and Bhote Koshi are meeting each other. Now we begin steep ascending to Namche Bazar. We make a quick stoppage just over the shoulder of steep up after one and half hours of walking from there you will have the 1st excellent view of Everest (8848m) and Lhotse (8516m.)Then it takes approximately 45 minutes to arrive at Namche Bazaar. Bellow the Namche Bazaar there is also a check post for checking your permits.

It is considered an ideal day for altitude acclimatization in this place, after breakfast just get higher around the museum. There is very nice viewpoint including the statue of Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and rounding mountains view such as Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Tawache, Nuptse, Amadablam, Thamserku, Kusumkangaru, Kwonge Peak, and Thame Peak. It would be the best morning ever in your travel time then follow the steep climb up to the world’s highest airstrip airport “Syangboche”. Turn right across the Everest View hotel to Khumjung village for a day excursion, visit the monastery which is still preserving a yeti’s head then get back down to Namche by aside the Khumjung school or if you want to go to Khunde village you can continue climbing and take a direct way to Namche bazaar from Khunde.

You have to walk through the same way just up to Museum then take a right flat easy trail. The mountain view is widely spreading all around, make a small break in Chhumoa and follow the path which is heading to the riverside Lowsasa and Fungitanga. From there it is steep climbing through the pine, fir trees, and juniper and rhododendron forest till Tyangboche. Visit the holy monastery in the evening Puja (praying) time and overnight at the lodge. Tyangboche is not a big place so most of the hotels are very full of trekkers.

Leaving Tyangboche at the backdrop, we descend through a rhododendron forest and enter Deboche. Cross the Imja Khola over the suspension bridge and slowly scale upwards walking to Pangboche village. Pangboche is a very popular Sherpa village with a lot of Buddhist culture and tradition and keeps walking ahead for lunch in Sommare (a little hamlet). Then follow the classic trail for half an hour and enter Imjatse Valley beneath the mighty peaks of Ama Dablam peak. Follow the trail to Imja River with the beautiful view of Mt. Lhotse, Island Peak, peak 38, and so many others till you arrive in Dingboche village.

This is a suitable place to have an acclimatization day or for more ensure to avoid altitude sickness. After breakfast, you can take a hike up to Nartsang Peak at the altitude of (5000m) or Chhukung Peak (5320m) and back to Dingboche overnight.

Walk slowly to the left first ridge where some stupas are standing, and take a trail just above the Pheriche village along the yak pasturelands, it seems a very closed way however takes a longer time to arrive at Thukla. Several mountain views are privileged on the way and maybe a windy walk, you will see the giant edge of the Khumbu glacier just over the Thukla. It has a very steep path to the top, thousands of mountaineer’s monuments lost their lives in the Himalayas. Follow the moraine trail along the hidden valley up to the mountains and stop at a little settlement Lobuche.   

It takes almost 4 hours of a demanding walk through the Gyazungkhang glacier, a rocky gregarious moraine trail, and a giant longe bed of Khumbu glacier to the right side. Mt. Pumori, Nuptse, Gyzungkhang, Ngozumba are towering Mountains. You arrive by lunchtime to Gorakshep and make an Everest base camp tour in the afternoon. And back to Gorakshep overnight.

Makalu, Bharuntse, Amadablam, Tauche, Thamserku and complete Himalayan glacier covering landscape are visible. Pumori base camp lies just below kalapatthar with gleaming Glacier Lake. Achieving steps on Kalapatthar is the ultimate mission and worth of your travel. Get back to the lodge for breakfast and return home way from Gorakshep to Pheriche.

The Trek descends via the legendary trail to Somare, pangboche, Dibuche, and Tyangboche Monastary and descend down to the Phungitanga and one hour ascend to Lausasa. You can even reach to Namche bazaar but we recommend to Kyanjuma for overnight because of the last and beautiful views.

Make the most enjoyable breakfast with mind-blowing views. Trek to Namche bazaar and enjoy your lunch then slowly descend down to Monjo via crossing the two Rivers conjoint bridge. overnight at good lodge with very nice hotshower

The trek from Monjo to Lukla is quite easy while descending. you find it very comfortable and might be very excited to finish the trek. Farewell dinner will be organized in Lukla, you may give some Tips and materials to your crews instead of doing hard efords for your successful trip.

Useful Info

Notice for domestic flights to and from Lukla:

The Tribhuwan International Airport and the domestic Airport are partially the same in Kathmandu. So it used to be a heavy air trafficking during international flights. That is affecting tremendously for the smooth flight operation to Lukla which is mostly departing early in the morning. Most of the tourists come to Nepal for Everest region trekking and the main gateway to enter into this legendary region is by flight to Lukla. The airport in Lukla is only suitable for small aircraft so there would be uncountable flights in a day. Thus, aviation had decided to operate regular flights not from Kathmandu but from the nearest airport of Kathmandu during the main tourist season. At the moment, the nearest airport is in Manthali Ramechhap, which is approximately 4 hours drive away.

The flights are effective from the beginning of October to the End of November in autumn and March to mid-May in spring.

Most tourists get to drive in the middle of the night from Kathmandu to Manthali for the next day’s morning flight. But we recommend moving a day earlier from Kathmandu to nearby Manthali. That will provide the perfect views of the countryside of Nepal and also would not make the rush and uncomfortable drive.

Altitude sickness:

Altitude sickness (acute mountain sickness) is difficulty of sleeping, dizziness, headache, fatigue, loss of appetite, rapid pulse, nausea, vomiting, etc. It affects mountain climbers, hikers, and skiers because of lower air pressure and lower oxygen levels. It occurs as the result of failure to adapt at a higher altitude. It happens most often in the brains or the longs after the fluid begins to leak from the blood vessels.

When the fluid collects in the brain, you initially get headaches, loss of appetite, nausea, tiredness, want to lie down and feel powerless, physically moving is unwilling, and a decrease of consciousness, and the problem with balance coordination is called high–altitude cerebral edema (HACE). If the fluid is collected in the lungs, you become breathless and dry, and it makes regular irritative cough, sometimes coughing up blood too, discoloration of the skin, and chest tightness is called high altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE).


To prevent acute mountain sickness; we have to follow fundamental gravity habits such as patience, consistency, and discipline in the mountain. The mountains have their own rule and regulations. We cannot turn them into our nature except by following and respecting them. Cloth on properly according to the altitude, avoid rapid altitude gain, drink enough water or fluid, take enough acclimatization time to adjust the body at a higher altitude, avoid alcoholic items, control smoking, eat regular meals, get higher & sleep at lower altitudes. Avoid high altitudes if you have heart and lung disease. If the symptoms occur then stop climbing mountains and descend to a lower altitude. In case the person is seriously sick, or cannot bring him/her to a lower altitude by walking and carrying then she/he should be rescued by quick Helicopter evacuation.
