- Immerse yourself in the Sherpa lifestyle , culture and tradition
You take an early morning flight to Lukla. After a short break trek to Phakding and enter into the home of the Sherpa community perched in the nook and corner of the valleys known as Khumbu. After Phakding the trail gradually climbs to Jorsale and climb the steep but gradual trail to Namche Bazar. Spend two nights in Namche Bazaar. While at Namche Bazar visit the villages at Thame (12,500ft/3811m) and Khumjung. Thame village was the original home of the famous climber Tenzing Norgay who reached the summit of Mt. Everest for the first time in human history with Sir Edmund Hillary. The extra days at Namche allow you to acclimatize in the increasingly thin air as you go up higher. After Namche Bazar, the trail drops down to the Dudh Koshi River. Cross the small hamlet at Punki Thanka and climb the steep trail that becomes gradual as you reach Thayngboche monastery. The trail from Thyangboche to the summer settlement of Dingboche is quite easy. The next day walk down Chukung valley; this is another easy day for acclimatization. Explore the area. There are several high viewpoints to see a panoramic view of the high mountain including the icefall at Amphulapcha. The base camp of Island peak is very close to Chukung village. It is one of the most popular trekking peaks.
There are another two nights at Dingboche (14,100 ft/ 4300 m). This extra day provides sufficient time to acclimatize your body. Lobouje is your second last stop on the way to Kalapattar and the base camp of Mt. Everest. Depending upon weather and your physical condition you stop at Gorakshep (17,344 ft/5,288 m) for an overnight stay or go direct to climb Kalapattar (18,187 ft/ 5288m) to see them close up a stunning view of Mt.Everest. If you are energetic and feel good take the time to visit the base camp of Mt. Everest.
The high point in this trek is the majestic view of Mt.Everest and surrounding lofty Himalayan peaks in the backdrop of deep blue sky. The grandeur of nature that you see would be one of the most memorable times in your life. After completion of your journey, you follow the same trail back to Lukla. The trek ends with a flight to Kathmandu.
