Itinerary

Today we will take a wonderful flight from Kathmandu to Lukla (2827m). After 40 minutes, we will land on a runway and our caretaker will help us carry our belongings. Then we will walk down to the Dudh Koshi River, where we connect with the main path to Namche Bazaar.

After moving all the way through the small area of Ghat (2550m), we will soon arrive at our tea house at Phakding. Overnight at tea house.

Special Note:
The weather in Lukla is highly unpredictable. The small airstrip, located on top of a hill with mountains surrounding on three sides, is widely known for terrible weather, which impacts the regular flight schedules. The flights, in such circumstances, may likely be delayed or even canceled in worst cases

The transportation back to the hotel and accommodation on this night is not included. You will have to pay additional for this yourself. If the weather is clear the next day, you will get either the 3rd or 4th flight to Lukla.

On this day, you will pass through several small villages and cross over the Dudh Kosi river several times on suspension bridges. You will also have the opportunity to visit the famous Hillary Suspension Bridge, named after Sir Edmund Hillary, who was one of the first climbers to reach the summit of Mount Everest.

As you continue on the trek, you will enter the Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is home to a variety of flora and fauna, including musk deer, Himalayan black bear, and the Himalayan monal, a colorful pheasant found in the region.

After around 6-7 hours of hiking, you will reach Namche Bazaar, a bustling town that is the administrative and business center of the Khumbu region. Namche Bazaar is also known for its Saturday market, where local farmers and traders come to sell their goods.

The trek from Phakding to Namche Bazaar is relatively easy, with a gentle ascent and a total distance of around 10 kilometers (6 miles). It is a good introduction to the higher altitudes of the Everest region and a great way to acclimatize to the thinner air.

After breakfast this morning, we’ll embark upon an expedition to the Hotel Everest View. This uniquely situated hotel boasts what just might be the best views in Khumbu, and you’ll be able to enjoy a fantastic panorama where Thamserku, Taboche, Ama Dablam, and Everest itself are the stars of the show. But our hike is only half of today’s fun—on the way to the Hotel Everest View, we can visit the small monastery at Khumjung, where lucky visitors may be able to catch a glimpse of a purported yeti scalp. And on our way back from the hike, we can make a short detour to Tengboche to visit the oldest gompa in the region: Tengboche Monastery.

Our round-trip hike should only take about four or five hours to complete, and we’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the remaining points of interest in Namche Bazaar. One attraction you won’t want to miss is the Sherpa Culture Museum; after learning more about these friendly and fascinating people, you’ll also want to visit one of the many German bakeries which are revered amongst travelers in Khumbu. You can also take the opportunity to explore the town of Namche Bazaar and visit the local market, where you can find a variety of goods, including traditional handicrafts and souvenirs. Namche Bazaar is also home to several restaurants and cafes, where you can relax and try some local cuisine.

The return trek from the Everest Base Camp continues along the Dudh Koshi River to the small mountain airstrip at Lukla where you will catch your return flight to Kathmandu.

Amazing scenic fly back to Kathmandu. It’s better to consider this day as buffer day too as just in case flight did not take off due to bad weather condition.
