In 1953, Sir Edmund Hillary of New Zealand and Tenzing Norgay of Nepal made arrangements for their journey up the world’s highest mountain, Mt. Everest (8848 mt). You can follow in their footsteps with a 14-day trek to Everest Base Camp (EBC-5365m). This trek will take you to the very place where they planned and began their expedition to reach the summit of Mt. Everest. During your trek you will be in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Sagamartha National Park.

During your journey to EBC, you will have the opportunity to stop by the renowned Tengboche Monastery. From there, you can observe this colossal summit along with other 8000 meter peaks such as Lhotse (8516m) and Makalu (8463m). This trek will lead you up to Kala Patthar (5643m), where you can witness the nearest view of Mt. Everest and other Himalayan mountains. Upon reaching EBC, you will get the chance to view the Khumbu Glacier as it descends from Everest.

Along your way, you will encounter gorges, flourishing forests, and cross a range of mountains en route to your destination. You will have some time to adjust to the altitude before going up higher. As you go through the villages in the Khumbu region, you will see firsthand what the villagers endure to survive in the Himalayan mountains, and how their devotion to Tibetan Buddhism enriches their lives.

Following the trail to EBC, you will be amazed at how close the snow-capped peaks are. The sheer size of the mountains will make you feel small and insignificant.  It’s like the mountains are within your grasp. This region hosts four of the world’s tallest peaks.

During your picturesque flight to Lukla and back, you’ll witness the vastness of the Himalayan range. Your appreciation for these mountains will be even greater after trekking through the valleys and peaks en route to EBC. This trip is perfect for nature enthusiasts and anyone longing to glimpse the world’s highest summit.

Around the eight-sided foundation of the Stupa, there are 108 depictions of Buddha, where Buddhist Lamas have been performing prayer ceremonies for over 2000 years. Next, you will travel to Pashupatinath, the most significant Hindu pilgrimage site in Nepal, located on the banks of the Bagmati river. The Pashupatinath temple is devoted to the god Shiva.

After breakfast in the morning, we will go to Changu Narayan Temple. It is the oldest temple in Nepal and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We can explore the ancient Hindu temple and its museum, providing insights into its history. Following that, we will drive to Bhaktapur which is just 6 kilometers away. Bhaktapur, also known as Bhadgoan, is our next location. Upon arrival, we will go on a tour of Bhaktapur's sights, such as Durbar Square, Taumadhi Square, Dattatreya Square, and Pottery Square. These are some of the most popular attractions in Bhaktapur. Bhaktapur is an example of cultural preservation today. People here still follow traditions that are centuries-old, worship in typical Nepali temples, and protect Nepal's ancient architectural heritage. Despite the terrible earthquake, numerous temples have been reconstructed, and there is still plenty to explore and admire in Bhaktapur.

Today your guide will pick you up from your hotel early in the morning and take you to the airport for your flight to Lukla. This flight will last about 40 minutes and provide a preview of what’s to come as you descend into Lukla’s Tenzing-Hilary Airport. Viewing the mountains while flying over them will give you an understanding of the enormity of the Himalayan snow-capped peaks. A porter will be present to assist with your baggage. Our adventure commences as we set off on the path towards Phakding Village. Initially, we pass a Kani – an ornamental fortification – then embark on a relatively easy three-hour trek. Soon, we encounter a steep slope that leads us to a trail located above Kyangma Village and parallel to it. The most prominent landmarks in Kyangma are its sizeable monastery (called a Gompa in Tibetan) and its educational institution. We leave here and go to Cheplung Village. We walk down through the forest and see the Dudh Koshi River for the first time. We cross the suspension bridge, which is common on these rivers, and climb over the ridge until we reach Ghat Village. Along the way we see Mani walls (stones with six-syllable mantras carved into them), chortens (stones with square shapes and dome-shaped tops), and prayer wheels, which are all symbols of Tibetan Buddhists. We need to ascend to the tiny Chhuthawa village and then proceed to Phakding Village where we will spend the night at a lodge.

IMPORTANT:

This route is suitable for trekkers who are strong and experienced both physically and mentally. High level of physical fitness and endurance capacity are prerequisite for this trek which has a character of a soft expedition.

The times we have listed are approximations and are meant as general guidelines only. Alternatively, you may opt for the more comfortable Everest base camp trek. Throughout the Everest Base Camp Trek, you can move at your preferred pace. We suggest reaching Kathmandu a day before your planned itinerary starts. It will allow you to meet our trekking team beforehand and learn about your activities. If necessary, staying in Kathmandu for an additional one or two days for acclimatization will also be beneficial towards the end of your itinerary. Moreover, this will provide you with ample flexibility in case mountain flights between Kathmandu and Lukla are delayed due to inclement weather.

We do not recommend this trekking trip for the beginners. However, if you are a beginner, we suggest you opt for a more comfortable EBC trek. Just let us know and we will prepare a programme based on your level of fitness and experience.
