Day 1: Arrival in Kathmandu
Today is your arrival day. We welcome you upon your arrival at Kathmandu’s Tribhuvan International Airport. Transfer to Hotel in Kathmandu. Prior to the activities, arrange a meeting with your guide for briefing about the necessary formalities on your tour and trek program. Depending upon your arrival time you may spend free time visiting nearby historic/Countryside areas.

Day 2: Fly to Lukla/ Start Trek to Phakding(2650 m)
We pick you up in the morning with our Local Leader/guide to the Domestic airport for the first scenic flight, from Kathmandu to Lukla (2827m). The flight itself is exciting as we fly parallel to the Himalayan giants bordering Nepal and Tibetan side of China (Flight time 40 minutes). In Lukla, we land at an airstrip built by Sir Edmund Hillary and the Sherpas in the mid-1960s. After landing we meet our porters who carry our equipment during our trek. Before we kick off the trail, we also have time to explore the village. The trek starts with a descend towards the Dudh Kosi River, passing through the many lucky prayers stones and prayer flags where we join the main trail to Namche Bazaar and to the great areas of the Adventure destinations. (Dudh means 'milk' – the waters of the River are a strong milky white from glacial melt.) The walk is easy and after passing through the small village of Chheplung (2650),Ghat (2550m), we soon reach our lodge at Phakding. Our guides and porters accompany you for the sidewalks and visiting local people around or rest reading books and exchanging new card games. (3 hrs)

Day 3: Phakding to - Namche Bazaar (3450m)
We start the day from Phakding and cross the River to walk through tracts of blue pine and rhododendron forest that is very spectacular in the spring, when the flowers are in bloom. We cross the Dudh Kosi River at the end of Phakdingma staying on the east and west bank of the River, enjoy great views of the snow-capped peaks of Kusum Kanguru (6369m) and Thamserku (6623m). From here it is only a short walk to Monjo (2835m), where we arrive in time for lunch. Then, the walking gets a little tougher and includes a steep ascend to Namche Bazaar. It is a short walk to the entrance of the national park, where our permits are checked before we descend quite steeply to cross the Dudh Kosi to Jorsale (2805m). The trek continues upstream on generally flat terrain, crossing back to the right bank, to the confluence of the Bhote Kosi and Dudh Kosi Rivers. After crossing a large and stable suspension bridge high above the River we climb 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 opportunities as the peaks of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and Taweche come into view for the first time. You may notice you are travelling a little more slowly as the effects of altitude start to become apparent. Take your time on this path which is used by the local peoples as a 'foot highway' on this important trading route. At Namche we stay in a lodge in the heart of the village. (6:30 hrs)

Day 4: Acclimatization Day in Namche Bazaar(3450m)
We stay at Namche for a second night to allow us proper acclimatization to the high altitude and to enable full exploration of the town and its surrounds. Namche is a prosperous village, situated in a large, protected hollow. It gained its importance during the period when Tibetan salt was traded for the lowland grains of Nepal. Today quite an amount of trade continues at Namche and Tibetans are sometimes seen in the village trading rugs and Chinese-made goods, clothing, salt and dried meat. It is recommended that you take the opportunity to see both the sunrise and sunset views from the national park headquarters above the village. The panorama can be stunning at both times of the day with a superb view of the Khumbu peaks, including great sightings of Everest. After breakfast there are various options, including a walk with a series of great peaks rearing to well over 6,000 meters just to the west. Alternatively you can visit the national park headquarters to see the interesting displays of Sherpa lifestyle and culture. Your guides can advise and escort you on the walks. Another option is the steep climb out of the village bowl to the flatter areas around and above Shyangboche, Everest View Hotel where beautiful views of Everest, Amadablam, Lhotse, Tawoche, Peak 38, Thamsherku abound.

Day 5: Namche to Tengboche(3860m)
Our route of today to Tengboche weaves in and out of side valleys, making small ups and downs, to the teashops of Kenjoma, and joins the trail from Khumjung just before a collection of Mani stones. The views of Everest and Ama Dablam are excellent from this part of the trek. We pass the small settlement of Sanasa from where the trail drops towards Phunki Thanga (3250m). From here the trail climbs steeply through forests and around Mani stones as it follows the side of a hill to the saddle on which the monestary of Tengboche sits at 3870m. The view from here is rightly deemed to be one of the worlds most magnificent. Kwangde (6187m), Tawachee (6542m), Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse (8501m), Ama Dablan, Kantega and Thamserku provide an inspiring panorama of Himalayan giants. We spend the night in Tengboche village (5 hrs).

Day 6: Tengboche to Jorsale(2835m)
From Tengboche we descend steeply to the suspension bridge at Phunkitenga and after a break and a cup of tea we cross the Dudh Kosi and ascend to Tashinga. From here the trail contours high above the valley through Shanasa before returning to Namche Bazaar, where we take our lunch and enjoy a final opportunity to visit the shops in the bazaar. We descend down from Namche Bazaar steeply down along the Bhote Kosil. We cross the River and follow it to Jorsale where we be having a night stop in the bank of the Dudh Koshi River.(6hrs)

Day 7: Jorsale to Lukla
We start our last day walk along the River following the bridges to Monjo then It’s about three hours walking to Lukla. We walk along the River Dudh Koshi again and take a final uphill from Chheplung to Lukla. It’s our last night where you never like to miss final chatting with our Guide and Porters and cheer.
