Continue to the confluence of the Bhote and Dudh Khosi Rivers then climb steadily via the high Tenzing- Hilary suspension bridge with inspiring glimpses of Everest and the Nuptse – Lhotse ridge. A final three hour forest ascent leads to the administrative town of Namche Bazaar.

    Overnight in Namche Bazaar at Lodge.

  • Day 05: Namche Bazaar: Acclimatization and exploration day

    This is a scheduled acclimatization day. Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) and health experts recommend a stop for at least one extra night. Be active: climb high and sleep low is the acclimatisation advice.

    Namche Bazaar has ATMs, cyber cafés, delicious restaurant food and bakeries, plus a colourful market each Friday evening and Saturday morning. Visit the Sagarmatha National Park Visitor’s Centre: with informative displays on Sherpa culture, local flora and fauna.

  • Day 06: Namche Bazaar – Tengboche (3,870m/12,694ft): 8km, 5-6 hrs

    The trail climbs, then contours around the hillside, offering great views. Look out for spotted deer, Himalayan tahrs and birds – including the colourful (male) Danphe pheasant (Nepal’s national bird). At Sanasa the trail forks to Gokyo or Everest BC. Turn right and descend to cross the Dudh Khosi (past water driven prayer wheels) near Phunki Thenga (3,250m/10,663ft), the lowest point north of Namche Bazaar. It then enters the Imja Khola Valley and rises, through dwarf conifers and rhododendron forest, for a two hour pull, to the hilltop village of Tengboche.

Cross the Imja Khola and ascend to Pangboche with closer views of towering Ama Dablam (6,856m/22,495ft). The trail then follows the river as it rises to its confluence with the Lobuche Khola and continues up to Dingboche: the last year-round Sherpa settlement. Different views of Ama Dablam rise above terraced fields of barley, buckwheat and potatoes. The fields are walled to protect crops from icy winds and animals during the short growing season.

    Overnight in Dingboche at Lodge.

  • Day 08: Dingboche: Acclimatization and exploration day

    This second scheduled rest day will assist your fitness and oxygen intake at the higher altitudes to follow. An enjoyable 3-4hr, 400m climb to Nangkartshang Gompa, north of Dingboche affords views of Makalu (8,463m) the fifth highest mountain and awesome views of Ama Dablam and the valley floor.

    Return from the rarefied air to Dingboche for the night.

  • Day 09: Dingboche – Lobuche (4,940m/16,207ft): 7km,  5-6 hrs

    The trail climbs to a ridge and views of Taboche and Cholatse. Continue through yak pastures to a wooden bridge – and Duglha (4,620m/15,158ft). The trail then ascends steeply for an hour, up the gravely terminal moraine of the Khumbu Glacier. On the summit is a large group of stone-pile memorials to lost Sherpas and climbers. It also affords great border-views including Khumbutse, Lingtren, and Pumori. Everest is hidden behind the towering Nuptse – Lhotse wall. Follow the valley upstream for an hour to Lobuche.

    Overnight in Lobuche at Lodge.

  • Day 10: Lobuche – Gorak Shep (5,160m/16,930ft): – Everest Base Camp (5,364m/17,594ft) – Gorak Shep, 15km, 8-10 hrs

    A long but rewarding day. Follow the windblown rocky path along the barren Khumbu moraine to the last village at Gorak Shep. After an early lunch, set out on the feint trail to the world’s highest Base Camp, on the Khumbu Glacier: opposite the dreaded icefall – the most dangerous section of an Everest ascent.

    In April/May the trail is busy with porters carrying in supplies and the site is a riot of colourful tents perched on the dirty ice. For the rest of the year it is a bleak and lonely place set below the impressive ice walls (and avalanches) of the Mahalangur Himal along the Tibetan border. From west to east, the main peaks are Pumori, Lingtren, Khumbutse and Nuptse. Everest and the Cwm are hidden behind buttresses.

    Trek back to Gorak Shep for the night.

  • Day 11: Gorak Shep – Kala Patthar (5,545m/18,192ft) – Pheriche (4,280m/14,070ft): 15km, 8-10 hrs

    A very early climb of 2-3 hours up Kala Patthar, behind the village, offers a sunrise awakening of the Himalayan chain. First Everest (8,848m/29,028ft), then its surrounding vassals: Pumori (7,145m/23,443ft), Lingtren (6,697m/21, 973ft), Khumbutse (6,623m/21,730ft), Changtse (7,550m/24,772ft), Lhotse (8,516m/27,941ft) and Nuptse (7,861m/25,792ft). Plus Cho Oyo (8,201m/26,907ft) in the west and Ama Dablam to the south: amidst countless other peaks that crowd the horizon in all directions.

    Drop back to Gorak Shep for breakfast; then retrace your steps to Lobuche. Return to the snout of the Khumbu glacier, dropping down the moraine and continuing on to the village of Pheriche for a lower and warmer night.

    Overnight in Pheriche at Lodge.

  • Day 12: Pheriche – Namche Bazaar (3,440 m/11,280 ft): 15km, 8-9 hrs

    Today’s trail descends to Debouche, rises through rhododendron forest to Tengboche. A long descent, leads back to Phunki Thenga before the climb to Sanasa (where the trail forked to Gokyo). The walk along the broader trail to Namche Bazaar is easy.

    Overnight in Namche Bazaar at Lodge.

  • Day 13: Namche Bazaar – Lukla (2,642m/8,668ft): 18km, 7-8 hrs

    From Namche, descend to more comfortable altitudes and the friendly farming villages from Jorsale through to Cheplung. Round off the adventure with the final 700m, 35min ascent to Lukla: and say goodbye to your porters.
