After an adventurous 35 minute flight above breathtaking green and white mountains, we reach the Tenzing-Hillary Airport at Lukla. This is one of the most beautiful air routes in the world culminating in a dramatic landing on a hillside surrounded by high mountains peaks. Here we meet our other crew members and after some packing and arrangements, we start our trek through the prosperous village of Lukla until we reach Phakding. To assist in acclimatization, we only have a short hike today. However, if interested in additional activities we can take a side trip to a nearby monastery. Overnight at Phakding. 

Namche Bazaar known as the Gateway to Everest, there are many good hotels and lodges here, along the whole Everest trail this is quite a big village. Overnight at Guesthouse.

We will spend a day here in order to acclimatize and adjust to the thinning of the air. A short trek to a museum celebrating the traditional customs of the Sherpa people. Today we hike up the Syangboche Airport, and around Everest View Hotel. From this point, we have rewarding views of the Himalayas with a stunningsunrise or sunset over the panorama of the Khumbu peaks. Overnight at guest house.

The trail passes through Yak Kharkas and summer settlements. The views of Khumbi La and Tawache are magnificent through out the day. Overnight at hotel.

The trail climbs a ridge for an excellent view both down the valley to Kengtega and up towards Cho Oyu and descend to a river and again climbs steep to the terminal moraine of the Ngozumpa glacier and we will reach at Machherma by early noon. Overnight at guest house. 

Today the trek takes us at one of our final destination, Gokyo (4790m). We will make this as base camp for 3 nights as we will have sightseeing trips around Gokyo. Overnight at guest house.

Today, early in the morning we have steep climb up to the top of Gokyo Ri at elevation of 5483 meters, ample rewards to anyone that attempts this trip. There are stunning views of the supper Gokyo valley, the massive Ngozumpa Glacier and an incredible panoramic view of the whole Khumbu Himalayas, such as giants as Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Makalu, Cho-Oyu and Gychung Kang can be seen. Those who explore the glacier and Gokyo peak are rewarded. This day we have for acclimatization and afternoon back to the camp. Overnight at  
guest house.

We will cross Gokyo glacier, about 4 hour working down to Thangnak. Overnight at Lodge.

This is a big day. We need to set off very early in the morning to ensure that we cross the Cho La and descend to Dzongla in good time. At first we make a very gradual ascent alongside the river up a small valley to eventually reach a sandy ridge line, which gives a great view of the Cho La ahead and to the north east. There are some impressive 6,000m peaks to be viewed from here. To the north - the rocky Nirekha Peak and Kangshung Peaks, and to the south, the icy bulk of Cholatse. We make a long, gradual descent on a pleasant grassy path to reach a lunch stop below the pass. After lunch the ground becomes more technical and it is time to pack away our trekking poles. The route weaves around boulders at first, before climbing up onto rockier ground and a final steep section to reach the top of the pass. This is on loose ground, which can often be icy, so we need to take great care and it might be that we fix a short section of rope and use crampons. Conditions on the pass can vary considerably, so we err on the safe side and bring crampons with us just in case. The top of the pass is glaciated and we walk across a flat section of snow for about 15 minutes before dropping off the side and back onto rock. With Dzongla now in sight, we pick our way down the far side of the pass and descend into a lovely valley. A stream that meanders along the bottom leads us to the lodge at Dzongla and a well-deserved rest. 

The trail from Dzongla descends a little, then contours steadily around Awi Peak, before joining the main Khumbu Valley and reaching Lobuche. There are yet more superb views today, including towards the distinctive north face of Ama Dablam. It will probably feel like something of a 'culture shock' arriving in Lobuje, as this is a busy village en route to Everest and one in which all trekking and climbing teams stay on their way to base camp. 

The trail from Lobuche follows the grassy ablation valley with great views of Pumori then crosses tributary glaciers to reach the dry lake bed of Gokrakchep. After having a lunch in Gorak Shep, we then climb the (5545m) Kala Patthar for incredible views of Everest and Everest Base Camp and back to Gorak Shep. 

Early morning we walk to Everest Base Camp, visit base camp area and work down to Lobuche. 

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 met at the airport and transfer to our Hotel.
