Trek past the villages of Tengboche, Pangboche, Dingboche and Lobuche to reach the last human settlement on the trail, Gorakshep, located close to the base camp.

See the Khumbu Icefall and enjoy great views of the Himalayas from Kala Patthar. A chopper will fly you from Kala Patthar to Lukla then regular flight from Lukla to Kathmandu after you are done with your breakfast. For more details, please go through the details below.

“Excellent trek, with amazing landscape.
The only point which I would change would be to keep an open schedule for the way up. Many people felt high altitude sickness symptoms, so it would be positive to break up the way up in more one-two days, to allow for proper acclimatisation. To have a fixed trek schedule is not the best to deal with altitude acclimatisation.
Apart from this, everything was excellent.”

“the trek was excellent although tough in the short timescale but I wanted the challenge. For others make sure you’re happy with the non acclimatisation days, I had the full information and I chose to take the shorter trek. Off season in January although cold was a great time to trek as far less people on the trail as I hear spring time is just to hectic. Even in the winter you get warm during the daytime treking.”

“From the first e-mail to the drop off at the airport everything went nice and smooth. Chhatra from Nepal Eco Adventure answered my mails quickly and all the questions and changes I wanted to make were answered and attended to without any problems. The trek itself was an amazing experience. Had the pleasure of trekking with the guides Ram, Arun and Sudip and 5 other trekkers. Ram is extremely experienced and a really cool guy, Arun is young, helpful and awesome, while Sudip stayed more in the back and made sure everyone was keeping up. Will highly recommend all the guides and Nepal Eco Adventure. Will definitely be back for more treks in the future!”
