Detail Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive Kathmandu (1,300 meters)

On arrival at Tribhuwan International Airport, a representative from Eve Holidays will greet you at the airport and escort you to your hotel. You’ll have rest of the day at leisure.

Overnight: 4 Star Hotel in Kathmandu

Included Meals: Welcome Dinner

Day 2 : Fly to Lukla (2,800 meters); Trek to Phakding (2,652 meters/8700feet) 3-4hrs

We fly to the mountain airstrip of Lukla (2,800m), and set off on the first leg of our trek, heading northwards up the valley of the DudhKosi. We descend from the small plateau, down into the forested valley. The trail offers some tantalising views before reaching the small settlement of Phakding (2,652m), where we spend our first night.

Overnight: Lodge in Phakding

Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3 : Trek to Namche (3,450 meters) 5-6 hrs

From Phakding, we cross through suspension bridges. Beyond Monjo is the entrance to the Sagarmatha National Park which was set-up in order to protect and preserve the fragile mountain environment. You then take a steep hike to Namche. If the weather is clear, you get the first glimpse of Mt Everest. Namche is the main trading village in the Khumbu and has a busy Saturday market, a meeting place for the traders from the lowlands and the Tibetan yak caravans that have crossed the glaciated Nangpa La.

Overnight: Lodge in Namche

Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4 : Rest day in Namche (3,450 meters)

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. It is an ideal place to spend a day, acclimatizing to the new altitude before heading off towards Tengboche. To acclimatize, you can do a strenuous day walk to a higher altitude, coming back down to Namche for sleep.

Overnight: Lodge in Namche

Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 5 : Trek to Tengboche (3,870 meters) 5-6 hrs

After breakfast we start our trek further to Tengboche. Tengboche is famous for its celebrated monastery, the largest in the Khumbu where lots of visitors come for traditional yoga and meditations. From Tengboche we can see nice views of Mount Everest, Mount Lhotse, Mount Nuptse and Mount Ama dablam.

Day 8: Trek from Lobuche to Gorakshep (5,170 meters)~Everest Base Camp (5,364 meters)~Gorakshep 6-7 hrs

About three hours beyond Lobuche we reach GorakShep (5,170 meters), the site of the 1953 expedition’s base camp. Contouring along the valley side, the trail leads on to the moraine of the Khumbu Glacier and becomes quite vague, weaving between mounds of rubble. After about 3 hours we will eventually reach base camp near the foot of the Khumbu Icefall. For those visiting base camp in the spring, it is a chance to meet teams making an ascent of the mountain. Base Camp is actually spread over quite a wide area and we will spend some time wandering through it and getting a sense of what it must be like to be camped here for two whole months, whilst attempting the mountain.

Overnight: Lodge in Gorakshep

Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 9: Trek to Kala Patthar (5,545 meters); Trek to Lobuche

For watching sunrise over Mount Everest, today we start very early when it is dark outside and cold chilly wind hits your face. The climb takes between 2 and 3 hours and can be hard work, but the effort is rewarded by the classic view of Everest and the Khumbu Icefall, as well as Lhotse, Nuptse, and Pumori immediately above. We retrace our steps to Lobuche.

The Government of Nepal has announced an issue for the flight operation to Lukla. Most of the flights to Lukla will commence from Ramechhap until further notice to avoid the heavy traffic congestion in Kathmandu airport. The airport in Ramechhap is located 130km from Kathmandu (approximately 3-4 hours drive).

Alternatively, helicopter arrangements can be made on 5 people sharing basis, for Kathmandu to Lukla, with the additional cost to change your airplane flights to the helicopter. The drive to Ramechhap and flight to Lukla from there is almost always guaranteed unless the flight is canceled due to bad weather conditions.

Experience Required for Everest Base Camp with Island Peak Climbing

Anyone who is fit and healthy and have a habit of walking for few of hours a day can do this trek. However walking in higher altitudes is more physically demanding than walking in lower altitudes. Exercising and jogging regularly for some weeks prior to the trip is a good idea to enhance your stamina. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lungs and blood diseases are required to consult their doctor before taking the trip. It is also advised that you inform Eve Holidays about the medical condition before booking the trek.

Acclimatization during Everest Base Camp with Island Peak Climbing

All of Eve Holidays trekking itineraries are planned keeping in mind the risk of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). Going up at higher altitude too fast causes a medical condition called AMS which is serious enough to kill if neglected. We are well aware that it is essential to allow you sufficient time for acclimatization to minimize the risk. However it is important to remember that some people are more vulnerable than others. So we suggest to avoid alcohol and drink enough water and get good night sleep during the trek.

    This was a too demanding trek for us and at times we felt tired as this was our first trek in such an altitude, but thanks to our trekking guide Shyam who never let us give up motivating us all the time and giving us time to rest. Thanks to Eve Holidays for such a perfect arrangement for us.
