Trek to Everest Base Camp, conquer high passes and glaciers, experience Sherpa villages and panoramic views, meet locals during teahouse stays.

  • Day 2Kathmandu / Phakding

    Mountain flight to Lukla, trek to Phakding.

    The mountain flight into Lukla is spectacular and the landing an exciting beginning to the trek – one end of the runway is 60m (197ft) higher than the other.

    Once in Lukla, head through pine and cedar woods along the Dudh Kosi to Phakding. Spend the next three nights trekking in the area and acclimatizing in preparation for heading to base camp. This is a challenging trip and involves difficult trekking at high altitudes but the whole experience is simply awe-inspiring!

    Plane

    Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's... yup, it is a plane, actually.

    Everest Base Camp Trek

    In Lukla, meet up with sherpa guides and porters before heading off on the trek towards Phakding. Follow the Dudh Kosi, the river that flows down from the Himalayas, crossing hanging bridges along the way.

    Set out on a 6–7 hr trek through woods and rhododendron forests before arriving in Tengboche.

    Everest Base Camp Trek

    The route from Namche to Tengboche route is unbelievably beautiful – the Dudh Kosi is far below and Thamserku, Kantega, Ama Dablam, Lhotse, and Everest rise in front. Woods, rhododendron forests, mani walls, chorten (stupas), and suspension bridges across the river make this a lovely walk. Elevation: 3810m

    Trek to Dingboche where we have time to acclimatize.

    Stone steps lead down through rhododendrons, birches, and conifers where, due to the hunting ban, almost tame pheasants are regularly seen. At the bottom lies the small village of Deboche and its nunnery. Rising above the tree line, the trail enters alpine meadows of scrub juniper and, in summer, a profusion of wild flowers. From Dingboche, the only place in the region where barley is grown, the mountain views are outstanding. Elevation: 4410m

These views are one of the highlights of the entire trek.
