Day 1 Kathmandu to Lukla and trek to Phakding(2610m) 3 hours Guest house

We board a flight to Lukla early in the morning. It takes 30 minutes to arrive at Lukla airport. There we will be introduced to our porter. Then, we will stop for breakfast after which we will begin our first day’s walk to Phakding, a fairly easy 3 hours walk through the Dudhkosi valley. We will head north from the airstrip to Chheplung (2700m). Here we will cross the Thado Koshi River on a local-style suspension bridge. Just past the bridge, we can see the peak Kusum and Kanggru (6367m), which are the most difficult trekking peaks to climb. Beyond the ThadoKoshi, the trail climbs a bit towards Ghat (2590m), then we will cross a ridge marked with painted Mani stones and climb to Phakding where we will stay overnight.

Day 2 Trek to Namche Bazaar (3440m) 6 hours Guest house

We start our second day of trek through the Valley of Dudhkosi River. We cross the Dudhkosi River five times on the exciting suspension bridges laden with prayer flags on the way to Namche. After we cross the last bridge, there is a steep climb up to Namche where the trail gradually leads up to Jorsale. It is a 2 and a half hour climb up to Namche with two view points on the way. We can have a mesmerizing view of Mt Everest on a clear day. At Jorsale, we enter the Sagarmatha National park where we will need to verify our permits. After 5 or 6 hours of hard walking, we reach the main trading centre, Namche bazaar.

Day 3 Acclimatization day at Namche. 4 hours Guest house

Acclimatization is very important before proceeding higher to avoid altitude sickness. We will be taken for a day’s hike through the villages of Khunde and Khumjung and come back to Namche through the Everest view hotel Khumjung. We can see the head of a Yeti in the monastery of the area. We can also visit the bakery at world’s highest altitude. We get to enjoy the panoramic views of Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam and many other mountains on a fair day. Even the view from Everest View hotel is very impressive. We start with a steep one-hour climb to the Syangboche airstrip (3790m), from where we will slowly ascend towards Khunde passing numerous chorten (stone Buddhist monuments). From Khunde, we follow the trail eastwards to Khumjung, the largest village in Khumbu, at the foot of the sacred peak Khumbila. After enjoying lunch at Khumjung, we follow a gradual climb to Everest View Hotel where we will enjoy the splendid mountain views. Then we descend towards Namche (3540m).

Day 4 Trek to Tengboche (3790m). 5 hours Guest house

Our route for today to Tengboche weaves in and out of side valleys, making small ups and downs, to the teashops of Kenjoma, and joins the trail from Khumjung just before a collection of Mani stones. The views of Everest and Ama Dablam are excellent from this part of the trek. We pass the small settlement of Sanasa from where the trail drops towards Phunkithanga (3250m). From here the trail climbs steeply through pine forests and around Mani stones as it follows the side of a hill to the saddle on which the monastery of Tengboche sits at 3870m. The view from here is rightly deemed to be one of the world’s most magnificent sceneries. Kwangde (6187m), Tawachee (6542m), Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse (8501m), Amadablam, Kantega and Thamserku provide an inspiring panorama as the Himalayan giants. We will spend the night in Tengboche village (5 hrs).

Day 5 Trek to Dingboche (4350m). 4 hours Guest house

We descend through a beautiful forest then cross the Imja Khola and trek through the village of Pangboche. The route continues through summer pastures to Dingboche. We will spend the night at Dingboche. It is a very relaxing village with lots of mountain views. This is very easy walk and takes about 3 to 4 hours.

Day 6 Day trip to Chhukung valley and back to Dingboche. 4 hours Guest house

We will start around 8:30 after breakfast. The trek up to Chhukung is quite nice and easy. We get a really nice view of most of the mountains specially Ama Dablam. The view from Chhukung and further up the valley on the moraines towards Island Peak is tremendous. To the south-west, the eastern face of Amadablam provides an unusual view of this picturesque peak. This short trek is one of the highlights of the trek. It is a fast trip back down the valley to Dingboche for the night. While going back to Dingboche we might encounter strong winds.

Day 7 Trek to Lobuche (4950m). 5 hours Guest house

We start with a climb to the chorten trail that is a gentle climb for about 1 and half hours. Then we get to Thugla at 4600m with a tea house where we will have lunch before climbing the steep part of the day’s trek for about one and a half hours. We start to get close to high mountains like Mt. Pumori and Mt. Nuptse after a while as we proceed towards Lobuche where only basic accommodation and food is provided. Then we trek along a broad valley floor to Thugla, leaving behind the Trekkers Aid Post at Pheriche at 4240 m. A western volunteer doctor, supported by The Himalayan Rescue Association is stationed here and offers treatment and consultation to trekkers as we continue up the valley gaining altitude. When we come out of the valley, we descend to the yak pastures at Lobuche. Overnight at Lodge. The day’s trip takes about 5 and a half hour’s walk.

Day 8 Trek to Everest base camp via Gorekshep. 7 hours Guest house

This morning, we will take a 2 hour’s hike up to Gorakshep. First part is nice and easy but one hour later the trail starts to get harder which is compensated by the really nice view of big walls formed by Everest, Nuptse and many other mountains. Once we climb about 150m then trail gets better again. Short after we will get to the moraine. Finally we get to 5160m, the world’s highest settlement at Gorakshep. Once we have lunch, we begin our walk to Everest base camp. We will be walking on side ridge of the Khumbu glacier. After walking on the ridge for about one and half hours, we cross the Glacier and into the Everest base camp area. Today we reach Everest base camp at an altitude of 5360m. We will be able to meet and talk to other mountain climbers at the base camp. We can get a good view of Khumbu glacier and Khumbu Ice fall. From there we can also see the big crevasses in the climbing way. After appreciating our own efforts and photographing the achievements, we start our way back to Gorakshep. (6-7 hour)

Day 9 Early morning climb up to Kalapather for sunrise then t 6 hours Guest house

We will start the 5 hour’s hike to Kalapathar early in the morning. We spend some time enjoying the sunrise on the splendid Himalayan ranges, relishing in a unique view and experience and head back to Lobuche. From Lobuche, a six hours hike will take us to Dzongla which is the only place where we can spend the night.

Day 10 Cross Chola pass (5420m) trek down to Tagnag(4600m) 7 hours Guest house

Early morning, we start our walk from Dzongla to the Cho-la pass. The walk over the glacier is an enjoyable experience if we can make the trip during the best season otherwise excess snow makes it impossible to cross the pass. As the darkness returns we trek down to Tagnag to spend the night there.

Day 11 Trek to Gokyo (4800m) visit fifth lake back to Gokyo. 5 hours Guest house

It is a short day trek as we reach Gokyo in about 4-5 hours just in time to have lunch. Then we spend the rest of the day exploring the Gokyo valley. We can also visit the glaciers and turquoise lakes of the Gokyo valley while witnessing the spellbinding views of the Himalayan giants like Everest, Cho-Oyu, Lhotse Makalu and others. We spend the night in Gokyo.

Day 12 Sunrise hiking up to Gokyo Ri then trek to Dole(4200m) 6 hours Guest house

The upwards trek is quite a feat to Gokyo RI. Every step of the steep climb is worth it once we reach the pass and see the astonishing views of the Gokyo valley, the Ngozumpa glacier and a panoramic scene of the Khumbu Himalayan giants. After spending some time there, we make our way down to Dole where we spend the night.

Day 13 Trek to Namche bazaar. 5 hours Guest house

The trek from Dole to Namche Bazaar takes about six hours. During the course of the day, we cross the Khumjung village while walking on the base of Mount Amadablam. Once we reach Namche Bazaar, we rest and spend the night there.

Day 14 Trek down to Lukla. 7 hours Guest house

From Namche, first we make our way towards Phakding which takes about 5-6 hours, and then a leisurely walk takes us to Lukla by evening where we spend the night in a hotel or a Sherpa village.

Everst Base Camp and Chola - Absolutely Amazing
From Canada At
5 - Excellent
“I completed Everest Base Camp and Chola pass in April 2016. The whole trip was 19 days after 2 days in Kathmandu our group of 4 flew to Lukla and started to trek to EBC. There were no delays in airport and in about 2 hours from arrival to airport we were in Lukla.

The trek was a bit challenging as there were steep climbs. The trek was very scenic, but the path was tough. We stayed overnight at Phakding and then proceeded to Namche Bazaar, which is close to 3400 mts, we stayed there for 2 days for acclimatization then proceed further to Tengbouche, Dingbouche and stayed there for an acclimatization day, then we went to Lobuche and finally to Gorakshop ( closest tea house to EBC). Once we reached Gorakshop we had small snack and proceeded to EBC, it took us about 2 hrs once at EBC we took many pictures, spoke to some people, wondered around and started our walk back. Next morning we climbed Kalapattar that offers amazing view of surrounding mountains!!!! After our breakfast we started our way back to Lobuche and to Chole pass that took us several days. After Chola Pass we continued to reach Gokyo Ri and desended back to Namche (this took several days) and back to Lukla.”
Everest Base Camp Cho-la Pass-Gokyo Trekking...Esperienza fantastica!!!
From Italy At
5 - Excellent
“Il Trekking è stato meraviglioso, un pò faticoso in certe giornate ma ne è valsa decisamente la pena visto i fantastici paesaggi che abbiamo avuto la fortuna di ammirare. Abbiamo goduto di condizioni meteo perfette per tutto il viaggio tranne che per un giorno in cui ha nevicato molto rendendo il percorso un pò più difficile ma comunque suggestivo. Le strutture utilizzate per il pernottamento sono spartane ma confortevoli e i pasti di buona qualità.”

“Chhatra at Nepal Eco Adventures did an amazing job organizing a spectacular 24-day trek from Jiri to Everest Base Camp and Gokyo. Ram and Santosh, our trek guides, were fantastic and went out of their way to ensure we were safe and happy at all times. Highly recommended.”
Gokyo and Everest Base Camp
From United States of America (USA) At
5 - Excellent
“We greatly enjoyed our trek, as well as our tour of Kathmandu. Our guide was very gregarious and knowledgeable, and both our guide and porter adapted well and without any complaints to our desire to visit both Gokyo Lakes and Kala Patthar, despite the closure of Cho La due to snow. We ended up hiking two extra days' worth of distance without increasing the total duration of our trek.”
