  • Trekking Nepal Itinerary and Tour Map

    Day 1 – Arrive Kathmandu
    Arrive Kathmandu airport and meet your guide for the transfer to your hotel. Stay one night at Dai-la Boutique Hotel.

    Day 2 – Kathmandu – Lukla – Phakding (2600m)
    Early morning transfer to Kathmandu airport for a spectacular mountain flight to Lukla, a small airstrip high above the Dudh Koshi valley. After meeting your trekking crew and sorting out gear, begin the trek by descending to Chaunrikharka and heading up the Dudh Koshi valley to Phakding. Stay one night at the Sunrise Lodge. (B,L,D)

    Day 3 – Phakding – Namche (3440m)
    From Phakding, cross and re-cross the river on high suspension bridges. Beyond Monjo is the entrance to the Sagarmatha National Park. Ascend quite steeply to Namche and along the way, if the weather is clear, catch a first glimpse of Mt Everest. Namche is the main trading village in the Khumbu and has a busy Saturday market. Stay two nights at the Moonlight Hotel. (B,L,D)

    Day 4 – Rest day in Namche
    Namche is tucked away between two ridges amidst the giant peaks of the Khumbu and has an abundance of lodges, tea shops and souvenir shops as well as a magnificent outlook. It is an ideal place to spend a rest day, acclimatizing to the altitude. Options for acclimatization walks include a visit to Khunde Hospital which was set up by Sir Edmund Hillary or a one hour walk up to the Everest View Hotel above Namche for the sunset view of Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Lhotse and Everest. (B,L,D)

    Day 5 – Namche – Tengboche (3880m)
    Today is a spectacular day in terms of scenery. Trek along the ridge high above the Dudh Koshi then descend to the swiftly flowing river past tea houses and a village. Climb again through a forested zone where splendid views start to appear. Stone gates mark your entry to Tyanboche, and the plateau in front of its monastery is where your lodgings are located. Stay one night at the Himalayan Lodge. (B,L,D)

    Day 6 – Tengboche – Dingboche (4260m)
    Leave the backdrop of the Khumbu mountains and descend through rhododendron forests, crossing a suspension bridge to the left bank of Imja Khola. Climb the mountain path while looking at Ama Dablan and Kantega as they appear on the opposite bank. Stay two nights at Dingboche surrounded by a beautiful patchwork of fields of barley, buckwheat and potatoes enclosed by stone walls. Stay one night at the Family Lodge. (B,L,D)

    Day 7 – Dingboche – Lobuche (4930m)
    Today’s walk offers views of Mt Tawache, Ama Dablam and to the north, Pokalde, Kongma-tse and the great wall of Nuptse. Cross a small wooden bridge over the river of the Khumbu Glacier, stopping for lunch at the village of Dugla. Continue up a steep hill for views of Mt Pumori and other peaks west of Everest. Walk on to Lobuche and your sheltered lodge. Stay one night at Hotel Mother Earth. (B,L,D)

    Day 8 – Lobuche – Everest Base Camp – Gorekshep (5160m)
    For the trek to Everest Base Camp a very early start is required. It takes several hours on a trail across the Khumbu Glacier which weaves its way between almost translucent ice pinnacles and past seemingly bottomless crevasses. At Base Camp there will hopefully be an expedition in residence and there are great views up into the Khumbu Icefall where there is often some climbing activity. Stay one night at the Himalayan Lodge. (B,L,D)

    Day 9 – Gorekshep – Kala Patthar (5545m) – Tengboche
    Rise early for the climb to Kala Patthar for a sunrise view over Mt Everest and many other peaks. It is a hard climb of one or two hours but you can see the West face of Everest, Nupyse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku and more. Then it’s downhill for most of the day to Tengboche. Stay one night at the Himalayan Lodge. (B,L,D)

    Day 10 – Tengboche – Namche
    Mostly downhill today, there is a steep climb for about an hour before you encounter the scenic walk back into Namche. From Khumjung you can pass through Khunde and visit the small monastery. Stay one night at the Moonlight Hotel. (B,L,D)

    Day 11 – Namche – Lukla
    Descend steeply first to Phakding and finally to Lukla where you will say farewell to your guides and porters. Stay one night at Hotel Mera. (B,L,D)

    Day 12 – Lukla – Kathmandu
    Fly from Lukla to Kathmandu. In the afternoon, embark on a tour of Kathmandu and surrounds. Travel up to Swayambhunath Temple, set high on a hill with commanding views of the Kathmandu Valley. See devotees taking ritual dips in the holy Bagmati River and visit Patan Durbar Square with its mix of elaborately carved temples and monuments. The tour ends with a guided walk around the Thamel district, the main tourist hub of the city which bustles with activity into the night. Stay one night at Dai-la Boutique Hotel. (B)
