After a very early start, and an early take off from Kathmandu Domestic Airport, a 35 minute flight is all it takes to propel us into the Everest region of Nepal. The landing at Lukla (2815m.) is spectacular and on arrival we are greeted by our sirdar and trekking crew who organise the luggage and hustle us off for tea. After a leisurely lunch we start the trek in earnest, setting off for a gentle walk to Phakding (2815m.) a further 3 hours to the north. The trail leads through Lukla, past hotels, shops and airline offices to the edge of the Lukla plateau where the trail drops to meet the intersection of the Jiri trail at Chablung.

We will ascend slowly towards the route to Everest base camp. Advancing at a slow pace ensures proper Acclimatization.

We will cross the Dudh Koshi River at Benkar and enjoy great views of the snow peaks of Kusum Kangaru and Thamserku. After Monjo the trek will be a little strenuous as it involves steep ascent to Namche Bazaar. From here it is a short walk to the entrance to the Sagarmatha National Park where our permits are checked before we descend quite steeply to Jorsalle. The trek continuous up stream on a flat terrain on the confluence of the Bhote Koshi and Dudh Koshi Rivers. After crossing a large suspension bridge high above the River, we c limb steeply to the village of Namche Bazaar. A slow and steady pace is recommended on this section of the climb and we are encouraged to make the most of the fantastic photographic opportunity as the peaks of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam and Tawache come into view. The effects of high altitude will slow down our pace a little, so we encourage you to advance slowly. Upon our arrival in Namche the rest of the day is at leisure or if you would like you can explore this Sherpa capital on your own.

Day 5
Day 05 : leisure (acclimization) in Namche Bazaar. Overnight at tent.

We will rest a full day at Namche Bazar allowing our bodies to acclimatize to the altitude of 3440m. In the morning there is an option of walking up to the Everest View Hotel (3800m.) while returning for lunch.

Day 6
Day 06 : Namche – Thame (3800m), 4hrs. Overnight at tent.

The trek from Namche bazaar to Thame takes about 4 hours. From Namche the route turns into west and the trail is almost level as we head up the Bhote Koshi valley, once a popular trading route into Tibet. Along the walk we pass many prayer flags, Mani walls and carved stones, all indicative of the Tibetan Buddhist culture of this area. After descending to the Bhote Koshi, the trail climbs steeply to Thame. From here there are good views of the peaks of the Teng Kangpoche and Kawangde and to the north is the Nangpa La, the pass leading to Tibet.

Day 7
Day 07 : Thame – Lungdeng 6-7 hrs. Overnight at tent.

From Thame, the trek to Lungdeng takes 6-7 hours. The route follows the Bhote Koshi valley and en route one can observe varieties of plants and animals, Sherpa culture and unique settlements of Sherpa people.

Day 8
Day 08 : Lungdeng –Sumna (4815m), 3 hrs. Overnight at tented camp.

We are now in the quite Thame valley from here on we may well see many Tibetan traders with herds of yaks carrying goods from Tibet or heading to and from Nangpa La. From Arye, the trail is easy for a while which gradually climbs up to a large flat area where the valley splits and is a good place for lunch. After lunch the trail continuous to climb gradually at first and then it crosses a landslide area. We then descend towards Sumna and set up our camp for tonight, just below the Sumna glacier.

Day 9
Day 09 : Sumna – Kangchung (5250m),  5 hrs. Tented camp.

Today we take a path that is most probably hardly walked over by the normal tourists visiting the Everest region. This is a short walking day up to the valley to Lunag (5070m) and Kangchung (5250m) which is situated at the base of Nangpai Gotoya. We camp at Kangchung for 2 nights.

Day 10
Day 10 : Day hike to Nangpa La (5710m), Rest day.

This is a long and rather difficult walk as we walk towards the Tibetan border. Leaving very early we descend onto the rocky glacial moraine of the Nangpa glacier. Ahead of us, we can see the pass in the far distance but to get there we must cross from one side of the magnificent glacier to the other. Walking on the glacier is amazing and we must take care as the crevasses surround us. The trail changes from year to year but is marked by yak dung from the hundreds of Tibetan traders who bring their yaks across the pass regularly. We pass through Dzasampa (5400m), a small campsite actually on the glacier where the trading Tibetan camp with their yaks. The trail continuous to zig zag up and down and back across to the ride side of the glacier again for the final steeper climb up on to the ice and snow. We eventually come to the top of the glacier from where it is an easier 45 min walk to the very top. Finally we will spot the prayer flags which mark the top of the Nangpa La and the border between Tibet and Nepal. The views from here are worth all the effort of the climb. Ahead, we can look down and across onto the barren Tibetan plateau and to our right stands Mt. Cho Oyu as other peaks and glacier surrounds us. The marker post at the top is the border between Nepal and Tibet. We return to Kangchung the same route.

Day 11
Day 11 : Trek back to Arye (4910m), 5 hrs, tented camp.

We follow the same route back to Arye. If lucky we can follow the caravan of Tibetan traders together and get to know the difficulty they have to face to make a trade in Namche Bazar. This route is also often used by the Tibetan refugees who flee Tibet to go to India.

Day 12
Day 12 : Arye – Renjo La Base camp (4900m), Tented camp.

Day 13
Day 13 : Renjo La Base Camp – Gokyo (4790m). Overnight at tent.

The big day starts really early as we have to walk about 4 hours to reach the pass, going slow because of the high altitude.
