The next few days are spent trekking through the heartland of the Sherpa people. Passing Buddhist monasteries with the view of Everest getting closer everyday. We will have rest days in the villages of Namche and Dingboche. This will allow us to explore the region and to acclimatize, which is very important. During the Everest trek, our goal is to summit the Kala Pattar (5545m), which is higher than Everest Base Camp, with splendid views of Nuptse and Everest.

We provide the highly experience Sherpa trekking guide and porters to operate this trip. Everest Base Camp is the most selling trekking trails in Nepal. Here is some less ambitious destinations such as Namche Bazaar, the administrative Headquarters of the Khumbu region, Khumjung or Thame, more typical Sherpa villages and Tyangboche Monastery. During the trekking we will arrange to stay overnight at tea house or camping /tent. We hope trip to Everest Base Camp is more exciting and memorible for your lifetime.

It is dangerous to trek to Everest Base Camp?

It could be risk and dengerous if you hike without guide, who will ensure a good itinerary in terms of acclimatisation and of course fresh and clean foods, boiled andfilter water. So we suggest to choose reputed company for booking this great trip. Our experiance guide always take care of the trekking and hiking group and our porters carry your loggage with carefully day by day. Some time our luggages carry by the Yaks, they climb pretty quick along the trails and have been known to bump into people and send them flying. They are amazing animals, you will hear them coming by the sound of their bells in neck which is your sign to stand off the trail and always to the upper side of any slope.

When should I make the trek?

For best trekking time, here are two main seasons which is March to May and September to early December. However it is also possible to go outside of these months but they would be the most popular times due to weather. March to May it starts cold and gets warmer and the other is true post monsoon.

Itinerary

You will welcome by Glance Himalaya's stuff and transfer to hotel. Evening welcome dinner near by hotel.

After breakfast we will start Kathmandu city tour, it is the historical and cultural heart of Nepal. So during the sightseeing tour we will visit Shyambhunath, Boudhanath, Pashupati Temple and Historical Durbar Square. Evening short briefing about upcoming trip to Everest Base Camp.

We will have a scenic flight of 30 – 35 minutes to Lukla (2800m) from Kathmandu. In Lukla we may see the airline office and numerous lodges. The trail from Lukla leads you to Chablung (2700) and it descends steeply to the Tharo Kosi which is also known as Kusum Kangru Khola (river). Beyond the Tharo Kosi Bridge, the trail climbs to Ghat (2590) and again climbs to Phadking. In Phadking we can climb to the gompa to see the view of the high peaks.

From Phadking the trail follows the Dudh Koshi River and reaches Zamphuti. From here we can see excellent views of Thamserku peak. Then the trail climbs to Chomoa, the site of an agricultural project. From Chomoa, the trail again climbs to Monjo (2840m) and enters the Sagarmatha (Everest) National Park (1148sq km, established in 1976). Walking some distance up we will be at Jorsale (2830m) and after a long climb where we have the view of Mt. Everest peeking over the ridge of Nuptse (7879m) the trail reaches the street of Namche Bazaar.

After having breakfast take some sightseeing around Namche Bazaar. Then we can hike to the Everest View Hotel, the ideal place to overview some of the outstanding mountains such as Mt. Everest, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, Lhotse etc. We can walk around the Khumjung valley, Hillery School and Khunde Hospital and then return back to Namche. In the centre of Namche, can visit the mountaineering museum and visit the Sagarmata Pollution Control Committee (SPCC). In Namche Bazaar we can spend some time interacting with the fun-loving Sherpa and Rai people. 

From Namche Bazaa,r the trail climbs up and down to Sanasa where the trail descends gradually to Teshinga and then it drops steeply to Phunki Thanga. Climbing two hours from Phunki Thanga we will reach Tengboche. Tengboche is a religious place for the Sherpa people and the entire Solukhumbu area. Here we will see the Tengboche Monastery which is one of the oldest monasteries in Nepal.

Early In the morning our route ascends gradually, high above the Imja Khola, passing the teahouses at Orsho before crossing the Imja Khola and old glacial moraines to our lodge in the settlement of Dingboche. The scenery is spectacular, although Everest has disappeared behind the Lhotse-Nuptse ridge, the huge peaks that tower above the eastern end of the valley are ample compensation. We are now almost completely above the treeline. In clear conditions, look out for spectacular sunsets here and on Ama Dablam. Today's walk is quite tiring due to the altitude so it is important to take notice of your leader's advice and recommendations regarding rest and fluid intake.

Dingboche is a beautiful patchwork of small fields enclosed by stone walls protecting the crops of barley and potatoes from the cold winds. It is occupied mainly through the monsoon months, when large numbers of yaks are brought here to graze on the valley pastures. Behind our lodge the huge rock faces of Taweche seem to soar to the heavens. Your leader will advise on activities today; the short excursion up the valley towards Chukung is worthwhile. The views are fantastic in this valley; the towering south face of Lhotse to the north, Island Peak in the center of the valley, and the fluted ice-walls of unnamed peaks that line the southern end of the valley form a hauntingly beautiful sight. The other option which is better for acclimatizing, is a hike up the hill behind our lodge will afford great views of the fifth highest mountain in the world, Makalu (8481m). 
 

In the morning we ascend the small ridge behind the village above the Pheriche valley. From the Chorten at the top, Taweche and Cholatse (6440m) make for a striking scene as they seem to lean forwards from across the valley in the west. To the north, Lobuche Peak (6119m) and the snowfields of the Cho La dominate the skyline. The walking is now generally fairly flat on wide-open fields, but do take your time and ensure you are well hydrated. Late in the morning we cross the Khumbu Khola at Dughla (4620m) and take a light lunch at the foot of the huge terminal moraines of the Khumbu Glacier flowing off Everest. In the afternoon, there is a solid and quite steep climb on a rocky trail to the top of the moraine. On the crest of the ridge, you pass a line of memorial cairns, built in memory of the Sherpas and climbers who have died on various Everest expeditions over the last 50 years. From here the view is spectacular, Pumori (7145m) Lingtren (6697m), Khumbutse (6623m), and across the border in Tibet, Changtse (7550m) are seen at the head of the valley, whilst Everest is hidden behind the towering walls of Nuptse and Lhotse. We then follow the valley stream to our lodge at Lobuche, arriving early afternoon. Today is a tiring day but the fantastic scenery makes it all very valuable. 
 

After an early rise, we have a short trek to Gorak Shep where we will have breakfast and some tea before beginning the walk up to Kala Pattar. (5545m)A gradual ascent enables you to build the slow, steady rhythm required when walking at high altitude. From the lodge the ascent is quite steep, so start very slowly and try to ascend at steady rhythmic pace. Our goal Kala Pattar, is the rocky hilltop below Pumori. It is a tough walk, but the view from the top surpasses the wildest imagination. It will probably take a good hour and a half to reach the summit from Gorak Shep, although lower viewpoints will provide views almost as good. Pumori, Nuptse, Changtse, Ama Dablam, Taweche, Kantega and Everest - the highest mountain in the world, and some 200 metres below, the area of the Everest Base Camp can be seen in a bowl at the bottom of the Khumbu Ice Fall. For many trekkers, reaching Kala Pattar is a very emotional experience and it is worthwhile spending as long as you wish to savour this special moment. The descent back down to Gorak Shep is easy, Upon arrival in our lodge in Lobuche, hot tea will be waiting and a short time later our evening meal. 
 

From Lobuche we re-trace our steps to Dughla, it seems much quicker and easier going down From here we take a different route from our ascent, following the wide alpine valley covered in scrub juniper through to the temporary settlement of Phulung Karpo (4343m), and then to Pheriche. There is also a Trekkers' Aid Post here, supported by the Himalayan Rescue Association which, although not manned year round, is well worth a visit if open. From Pheriche we cross the Khumbu Khola and ascend a short steep trail to the top of a small ridge for great views of the Imja valley, Ama Dablam and Kantega. We then descend to the small settlements at Orsho and Shomare, and then to Lower Pangboche to our Lodge.

After breakfast we descend steeply through beautiful forest of juniper, rhododendron and fir to Tyanboche and then down again to Phunkitenga. After a welcome break and perhaps a cup of tea we cross the Dudh Kosi, and ascend to Trashinga. From here the trail contours high above the valley through Sanasa, before returning to Namche Bazaar where we spend the night.

We follow the trail through Jorsale and back to Phakding where we take lunch. In the afternoon it is a short walk with great views of Kusum Kangaru back to our lodge in Lukla. 
 

We rise early in the morning to be ready for the arrival of the aircraft, for back to Kathmandu. We will be meet at Kathmandu domestic airport and transfer to our Hotel. Evening farewell dinner.
 

 After breakfast, we transfer you to the airport for your flight to home with the beautiful memory of Everest trip.

Reviews

J. Herbertsson , Sweden

“Trekking with Glance Himalaya Tours Nepal”

We (a couple from Sweden) did the Everest base camp trek in late November- beginning of December 2010. It was great! November is the end of the main trekking season, but we still had really nice weather and nice days in the mountains. We flew into Lukla and hiked for a total of 11 days. Our original plan was 12 days of trekking, but due to bad weather we were delayed for one day on our way to Lukla. Since we missed one of our acclimatization days, our trek became one day shorter and we did not make it to Kala pattar or Everest basecamp. If it is important for you to reach basecamp, you have to make a deal with your travel agency in advance; otherwise you will not be able to reach your goal without the risk of getting altitude sickness if you are short on days. On our way down we walked to Khumjuung and visited Khunde, which we really liked and recommend. We used the guide book “Trekking the Everest Region” by Jamie McGuinness, and we really enjoyed to read it during the evenings.

Our trip was organized by Mr. Deepak Koirala and his “Glance Himalaya Tours Nepal” www.nepalhimalayatours.com. He met us at the airport, arranged and paid for our room at Katmandu Guesthouse. The price also included the plane ticket Katmandu – Lukla –Katmandu, a very nice Sherpa guide and a porter. During the trek, all food (but not drinks) and accommodation was also included. We recommend using Deepak and his services, he met all our expectations and we are very happy with our trip.
