We begin our trek with a spectacular flight to the mountain strip of Lukla, the entry point to the Everest region from where we head to Namche Bazaar, the capital of this region. In the busy town of Namche Bazaar, we acclimatize for a day and a half, enjoying the culture and traditional lifestyle of the native Sherpa people before heading out towards the mountains.
For about two weeks, we explore the Everest region, ascending a number of remote high passes and vantage points to claim some of the most incredible mountain views on planet Earth. We climb for a few days in the beautiful yet challenging terrain to reach Chukkung Ri at 5,546 m from where we get to enjoy incredible views of Mount Nuptse. We then head towards Gorak Shep, Kala Patthar (5,545 m) and come face to face with Mount Everest and the Khumbu ice-fall.
Crossing over a glacier and another high pass - Cho La (5,420 m), we head for the Gokyo valley where Cho Oyu (8,153 m) and Gyanchungkang (7,992 m) dominate the skyline on the Tibetan border. We then take a rest day and, on the next day, ascend Gokyo Ri (5,360 m) for more stunning panoramic views of the entire Khumbu region. Then, we head towards southwest for our final high pass Renzo La (5,345 m). At each of the 5 vantage points -- Chukkung Ri, Kongma La, Kala Patthar, Gokyo Ri and Renzo La -- we get spectacular views of five of the world's highest 8000 m plus peaks, and also countless smaller peaks. This trek truly makes you feel like you’re on top of the world!
considered one of the best trek in this word. You may have both unbeleiveble landscapes and well known check points such as EBC, Kala Patar, Namche, Gokyo.”
The manager is very nice, always took care of us, even during the trek, he called to ask if everything was ok. We had a nice diner all together the last night in Kathmandu.The guide Narayan Rai and the porter, were really nice with us. He also know all the mountains names in Himalaya. He is very experimented for trekking and expedition. So do not hesitate to ask Exciting Nepal if you wanna do a trek in Himalaya :) you'll be happy for sure.

How much money do I need to bring with me?
Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.
How much should my backpack weigh?
A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.
- Do I need a porter?
Do I require a porter for carrying water?
On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.
When should I arrive in Kathmandu before the tour?
We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the start day of the trek because the tour operators usually require one working day to arrange trekking permits. Arrive earlier if you want to explore Kathmandu on your own or acclimate to any time differences.
