There is nothing quite like seeing Mt. Everest up close. The world’s highest peak commands a presence like no other mountain. The people who live in the mountains here aptly call Mt. Everest "the Mother Goddess of the World" because of its sublime majesty.

We are pleased to be able to offer you the Everest-at-a-glance trek, a moderate trek suitable for anyone in average physical condition. This trip is a total of twelve days, of which six are actual trekking. When it comes to panoramic views, the Everest at glance Trek offers views that are second to none. Not only does Mt. Everest dominate the Himalayan skyline, but many other mighty peaks are visible, including several others that rank in the top ten peaks in the world.

The Khumbu region (land of Mt. Everest) is home to amazing glacial-fed rivers that tumble over rocks and waterfalls on their way to the Bay of Bengal deep in the south. There are hidden Buddhist monasteries framed picturesquely with the snow-capped peaks as backdrops. Entire villages cling to the sides of the cliffs along with their terraced farms.

You will also encounter the history, the culture and the legends of Nepal, and meet people from the various ethnic groups that call this tiny Himalayan country home. Their faith, family values and tenacity for life will impress you as much or more than the exquisite scenery that makes this land famous with travellers around the world.

Come and join in the adventure of a lifetime as you discover the Mt. Everest region for yourself.

“We are very happy with the entire organization of Budda Treks, from the first contacts to make the reservation like all the logistics during our trip. I would definitely recommend this agency to 100% and would repeat in case of another trekking.”
3 Star Hotel
The excitement begins as your plane descends for a landing at Tribhuvan International Airport in the legendary city of Kathmandu. The low green hills that ring the city offer you an amazing welcome. Once you’ve gone through passport control and picked up your luggage, you will be met by your personal representative from Buddha Treks & Expedition. He will take you to your hotel where you can relax from your long journey.
3 Star Hotel
It is a free day in Kathmandu. Head out exploring on your own or you can choose (optional) to join our sightseeing tour to see the places that have made Kathmandu place a legend for centuries.
5 hours Guest house
After breakfast, fly to the village of Lukla in the east of Nepal to begin your trek. It’s just a short, 30-minute flight over the very backbone of the mighty Himalayas. The entire trip is filled with scenic views of the snowcapped peaks below.

You arrive in Lukla, collect your packs and it’s off to the village of Phakding, an easy four-hour journey where we will spend the night at a local tea house. There will be time to explore this Sherpa village as you begin to meet the people of the Khumbu region.
6 hours Guest house
It’s a day of climbing upwards to reach the capital of the Sherpa people. Namche Bazaar is the district city and can only be reached on foot. There will be several places where you will be able to get amazing views of Mt. Everest on the trek. You officially enter Sagarmatha National Park, the home of Mt. Everest. Upon arrival in Namche Bazaar, we will check into our tea house for the night. Trekking time is around five hours.
Guest house
We’ve reached new elevations at Namche Bazaar, and the air here is quite thin. Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) is a real condition, and the best way to avoid it is to take a day to allow your body to adjust to the thin mountain air. Today is not just for sitting; we will climb to the top of the hill to get a truly dramatic view of Mt. Everest. There is also a Sherpa Museum to explore. The village of Namche Bazaar is also quite interesting as there are many restaurants, a bakery plus gift shops to visit. We will spend a second night at our tea house.
6 hours Guest house
It’s back to trekking as we rise early and make our way across the Dudh Koshi River. The trek is 5.9 km, but we take our time while taking pictures and enjoying the stunning scenery. Tengboche is famous for its impressive monastery. We arrive with plenty of time to join the monks in their evening prayers. Trekking time is around four hours, and we will spend the night at a local tea house.
5 hours Guest house
The trek descends and crosses the river on a bridge before rising again. All around us are the most amazing views of the various peaks of the Khumbu region. One of the famous peaks we will see is Mt. Ama Dablam, rising to an elevation of 6,812 m/22,349 ft. While not the tallest mountain in the Khumbu region, it is one of the most impressive, and like Everest, is truly a landmark. We make our way through the valley with its beautiful terraced farms before coming to the village of Phortse where we will spend the night. Trekking time is around six hours.
6 hours Guest house
The journey returns us today to Namche Bazaar where we will find our old tea house to spend the night. The trail back is different than the way we left, taking us to some incredible vistas as we look across the Dudh Khosi River. Trekking time is around five hours.
6 hours Guest house
It’s our final day of trekking as we make our way from Namche Bazar to the airport in Lukla where we will spend our final night at a tea house in the Khumbu.
25 minutes 3 Star Hotel
We board the flight back to Kathmandu in the morning, flying along the backbone of the Himalayas. Once we reach Kathmandu, you have a free day to explore the city or simply relax at your hotel.
3 Star Hotel
It is another free day in Kathmandu after trekking. Join our optional sightseeing tour if you choose.
After breakfast, your personal representative from Buddha Treks & Expedition will take you by private vehicle back to Tribhuvan International Airport for your journey to your next destination. But before you go, be sure to discuss other exciting activities in the Himalayas. From jungle safaris to mountain adventures, a lifetime of activities awaits you. With so much to see and do not just in Nepal but the Himalayas, you can be sure you will get the best service and prices from your friends at Buddha Treks & Expedition.

Good to know Our trip packages includes complete requirement for your holidays:
Our trip starts from your arrival at Kathmandu till departure from Kathmandu. It is fully organized that includes accommodation in Kathmandu and trekking, all meals in trekking, all necessary logistic support, guide and porters, trekking permits and entrance fee, etc. There is not any hidden charge.

You spend 2 nights in Kathmandu before trekking and another 2 nights after trekking:
2 nights stay in Kathmandu before trekking gives enough time to recover from jetlag, rest to restore energy for trekking and last-minutes preparation of trekking.
2 nights stay in Kathmandu after trekking is considered as reserve days, in case you could not follow itinerary due to any reason need extras days to reach your destination and delay your return from trekking.

The trip itinerary is crafted by expertise. It includes plenty of time to insure your leisure and taking you to destination. It is very much flexible where it is necessary.

A TYPICAL TREKKING DAY
A typical day revolves around the Nepal sunrise and sunset, rather than any Western time schedule. The day starts with an early wakeup call. You then pack up your gear and enjoy a rousing breakfast before starting your morning’s walk. The sirdar will already be organized and have assigned loads to porters and your group will then set off on the trail at a leisurely pace, enjoying the view and stopping to take photographs. After 2-3 hours walk you stop for lunch. This lasts for about 90 minutes which gives you time to relax, or explore the local village. The afternoon’s walk is usually shorter and we arrive at the campsite or tea-house in plenty of time to relax and savor the surroundings. Later in the evening dinner is served, giving you an opportunity to sample the delicious food, talk over the day’s events, and look forward to another special day on the trails of Nepal.

HEALTH ISSUES
We recommend that all clients consult their doctor to discuss the health issues associated with their trek. We also recommend that clients bring their own personal first aid kit to supplement the comprehensive
first aid kit carried by the Trek Leader.

VACCINATIONS REQUIRED
Please ensure that you allow at least 1 month to complete a course of vaccinations. Whilst your personal
doctor will be the final authority, we recommend the following :
• Poliomyelitis
• Typhoid
• Tetanus
• Rabies
• Meningococcal
• Immunoglobulin (for Hepatitis A)

MALARIA
Nepal is listed as a country for which malaria prophylaxis is advised. We will not be visiting any malarial areas on the treks, however you may wish to consult your doctor about the need to take malaria pills. Trekkers who plan to do rafting and jungle excursions are advised to take the necessary medication to protect against malaria.

ALTITUDE SICKNESS
Many treks in Nepal can take you quite rapidly to high altitudes, so you need to give your body time to acclimatize. If you ascend faster than your body can acclimatize you will start to develop symptoms of Acute
Mountain Sickness (AMS). A headache being the most common symptom, others are nausea, vomiting, fatigue, loss of appetite, dizziness and sleep disturbances.

The best way to acclimatize is to ascend slowly and gradually. The common wisdom is that you should take 2-3 days to reach 3000m – If flying in to above this height remember to take extra acclimatization days
(for example flying into Lukla). Once above 3000m, you should sleep no more than around 300m above your last nights altitude, and take a rest day every 3 days (or 1000m). At times it can be difficult to stick exactly to this schedule, as villages aren't always conveniently placed for acclimatizing, so you should think of the 300m as an average. During the day it is okay to trek higher as long as you descend to sleep.
Remember the mountaineer’s saying "Climb High, Sleep Low". If at any time you get symptoms of AMS you should not climb higher until they are gone. If they persist then you should descend to below the height where they first started. Only start to climb again when they have gone.

All of our itineraries allow for a proper acclimatisation schedule, and of course on our private departures you have the freedom to go slower if you are finding it tough - everyone acclimatises at a different rate. Please also consider your guide and porters and watch for signs of AMS in them. They are not immune to AMS.
You will find a graph below detailing the acclimatisation schedule. It shows the ideal acclimatisation schedule against suggested itinerary.

We always aim to get as close to the ideal as possible taking account of such things as available accommodation and camping spots with water etc.

INSURANCE
We INSIST that an appropriate insurance policy is taken out which covers travel in isolated and mountainous areas, and which also includes helicopter rescue. We recommend that you consult a reputable insurance agent or insurance specialist.

RECOMMENDED EQUIPMENT
Footwear: Trekking Boots, thick socks, light socks, camp shoes.
