Breakfast at the hotel and we will leave the hotel for the Kathmandu city tour. City tour as per our itinerary includes the tour of Pashupatinath, Swayambhunath, Boudhanath and the Kathmandu Durbar Square.  Instead of Kathmandu Durbar Square, you can also opt to visit the Patan Durbar Square. These attractions in Kathmandu are the UNESCO World Heritage Sites and will present you the opportunity to enjoy typical Nepali art, architecture, religion, culture, tradition and history. After spending a few hours enjoying these attractions in the Kathmandu Valley, we will drive you to our office to check the required clothes, equipments and gears for the trekking.  Once everything is set, we will drive you back to the Hotel Hyatt Recency for overnight stay, where you can enjoy five star dinner and accommodation.

Day 03: Fly to Lukla by regular plane and trek to Phakding (2,652m/8,700ft) (30-35 min flight and 4 hour walk)

Today, early in the morning, in an air-conditioned car, we will drive you to the domestic terminal of the Tribhuvan International Airport, where we will board a flight to Lukla. It’s a 30-35 min of a very scenic flight , where you will get a chance to feed your eyes on a very beautiful terrain. Then you will be landing on one of the most dangerous airports in the world- the Tenzing Hillary Airport. At the airport, you will be introduced to the porters and other team member, who will assist you during the trek. Breakfast will be served, while the luggage is prepared for the porters. Soon, the trekking continues downhill towards Phakding. Its about 4 hours walk, on a friendly trail made more friendlier by small Sherpa settlements, prayer flags, and  mani stones carved and painted with Buddhist inscriptions. Once we reach Phakding , we check into the most luxurious Khumbu hotel, the Yeti Mountain Home for overnight stay. Lunch and dinner will be served in the same hotel. If you are not tired, the nearby Rimijung Monastery, Choeling Monastery, Tye Kongma  Monastery and Gomlha nunnery are some good options to visit, while in Phakding. If you choose to spend the rest of the time in the hotel itself, the hotel offers  well stocked bar, a greenhouse, a leisure room and a small in-house library to spend a quality time. Additionally, in the hotel you can also enjoy  five star cuisine and  luxury accommodation. 

Day 04: Trek to Namche Bazaar (3,440m/11,283ft) (5-6 hour walk)

Having bountiful breakfast at the hotel (Yeti Mountain Home), we leave Phakding and head towards Namche Bazaar, a horseshoe-shaped village in the Khumbu region, which requires crossing a number of suspension bridges and up and down hill walk. Crossing the first bridge, an easy uphill walk past the villages like Zapute, Toktok, Benkar and Chumoa will first take us to Monjo- a gateway to the Sagarmatha National Park. After some formalities at the entrance, we now enter the very famous Sagarmatha National Park. The trail leading downwards from Monjo will make us cross two more suspension bridges, before climbing the final hill that will take us to Namche Bazaar. At this point, you can also enjoy the very first view of the alluring Mt. Everest. At Namche Bazaar, we again check into the next branch of Yeti Mountain Home, where you can enjoy all the facilities provided by the Yeti Mountain Home in Phakding. Additionally, you can also enjoy free Wi-Fi as well as the massage and well-being treatments in the hotel itself. Both the dinner served and accommodation provided in the hotel is of top quality. The night will be spent in the Yeti Mountain Home, Namche.

Day 05: Hike to Shyangboche (3,720m/12,204ft) (2 hrs)

Today’s destination is Shyangboche, about 2 hours hike from Namche. Therefore, after ample breakfast at the Yeti Mountain Home, we hike all the way up to Shyangboche located up the Himalayan hill behind Namche. After climbing the hill, we head north towards our overnight stop the Everest View Hotel in Shyangboche. This hotel is located at the highest altitude in the world and therefore listed in the Guinness Book of World Records (2004). We check into the hotel and enjoying the vista of Everest and Ama Dablam, we quickly have our lunch. Since this day is purely dedicated to acclimatization, instead of ascending the height, we spend our day exploring the nearby villages. For adequate acclimatization, it’s always considered good to get involved in activities rather than resting. Therefore, you have a choice, either visit the largest Sherpa village, Khumjung that features the monastery that displays Yeti’s scalp, traditional Sherpa villages and the school built by Sir Edmund Hillary or a jungle near Shyangboche, where there are chances of spotting Danphe and occasional chances of spotting Himalayan Thar and musk deer. After one of these side trips, we will get back to the Everest View Hotel for overnight stay. The hotel provides 5 star quality cuisine and accommodation. Additionally, you can also enjoy free Wi-Fi and a small study. 

Day 06: Trek to Deboche (3,820m/12,532ft)

Today, after breakfast at the Everest View Hotel, leaving Shyangboche we first head towards Sanasa, which is also a trail junction to Gokyo valley and the Everest Base Camp. From Sanasa, we walk down to Phunki Tenga, where we cross a bridge before ascending towards the Tengboche Monastery. The Tengboche Monastery is the  largest and the most important monastery in Khumbu. We spend some time exploring the area of the monastery and then descend to Deboche for overnight stay. In Deboche, Hotel Culture Home is our overnight stop. After a long walk, you can enjoy comfortable accommodation with spacious room,cozy bed and attached bathroom and very delicious organic food for dinner.

Day 07: Trek to Pheriche (4,240m/12,910)

Our destination today is Pheriche. Therefore, after quick breakfast at Hotel Culture Home, the trekking continues. We hike for some time and stop at Pangboche for a short rest, before hiking up the valley along the river till Somare. The trail is accompanied by a very pleasant view of Mt. Ama Dablam and other peaks and chortens and stupas. Crossing the bridge at Somare, the hike continues on a flat rocky trail till Orsho. Leaving Orsho, we gradually ascend towards the Pheriche pass (4,270m), enjoy the surrounding view for some time and hike down to Pheriche for overnight stay. At Pheriche, we spend the night in a very comfortable lodge that provides the best food and accommodation in Pheriche.

Day 08: Acclimatization at Pheriche

Second acclimatization before the attempting further height, which is very necessary to successfully complete the trekking. Thus, after morning breakfast, climb the ridge behind Pheriche. It’s a short hike, which can be completed in just about an hour. The top greets you with a very beautiful view of the Island Peak, Lhotse, Cho Oyu and Dingboche. We will spend some time enjoying the view and then come down to Pheriche for lunch. The Himalayan Rescue Association located in Pheriche conducts lectures on altitude and altitude sickness in the Himalayas. Therefore, after lunch, we can spend some time attending the lecture (optional) or even resting  and getting prepared for the next day. We will spend the night in a very comfortable lodge in Pheriche. 

Day 09: Trek to Lobuche (4,910m/16,108ft)

After plentiful breakfast at the lodge, not wasting more time, we will head towards today’s destination- Lobuche, which is the last village en  route to the Everest Base Camp.  The trail up till the wooden bridge at Dughla is fairly easy. However, after crossing the bridge we will have to cross the steep terminal of the Khumbu Glacier. Here, you will come across the memorials of Sherpas, who lost their lives on the glaciers of Mt. Everest. Having past the Khumbu Glacier, we will now gradually climb up to the settlement of Lobuche. Lobuche is our overnight stop for the day, where your accommodation and dinner is arranged in a very comfortable lodge. Although not of five star quality, the food and accommodation is still successfully beats the quality provided in other lodges in the mountains.

Day 10: Trek to Gorakshep (5,140m/16,863ft) and Hike to Kala Patthar (5,550m) for a sunset view

After breakfast, leaving Lobuche we head towards Gorakshep. Initially, the trail along the Khumbu Glacier is fairly easy. However, as we cross the Kangri Nup Glacier, the constant up and down on the glacial moraine , plus the altitude makes it a little difficult. Having past these ups and downs we now reach Gorakshep, the last overnight stop on the Everest Base Camp trail. Gorakshep is situated at the bottom of Kala Patthar- a famous viewpoint in the Everest region. After having lunch at the lodge, we now hike all the way up to the summit of Kala Patthar to enjoy the sunset view from the Kala Patthar. We spend some time enjoying the sunset view, stunning  view of the Mt. Everest , the Everest Base Camp, Khumbu Icefall , Nuptse, Pumori and other surrounding peaks.

Day 11: Trek to the Everest Base Camp (5,320m/17,450ft) and fly out by Helicopter

This day is the most awaited day of the trek. Therefore, after breakfast at the lodge, leaving Gorakshep we head towards the Everest Base Camp. About 2 hours of walk from Gorakshep on glacial and rough terrain will take us to the camp located near the Khumbu Icefall, which is more commonly known as the Everest Base Camp. You can now feel the joy of your accomplishment. We will spend some time enjoying the area and taking photos. Then we will fly back to Kathmandu from the base camp on a helicopter. Flying out on a helicopter will again give us a chance to enjoy the beautiful terrain, while bidding farewell to the Khumbu region of Nepal. From the airport in Kathmandu, we will drive you to the Hotel Hyatt Regency, where you can again enjoy the luxury of top class food and accommodation. You can enjoy the comfort of a 5 star hotel.

Laundry service during the trip

The hotels booked for you  offer laundry service, but at extra cost. However, if you want to do your own laundry, we request you bring biodegradable soap.

Useful tips for successful trek

A lot of uphill and downhill climbs are required, before reaching the Everest Base Camp. Some are easier, while the others get tougher with the increase in altitude. However, all the climbs are within the capabilities of any healthy person. The success is determined by how you deal with the altitude. We suggest you to walk at your own pace, slow, yet steady. Do not hurry to reach the destination. If you are tired walking, take a rest, that is, stand to rest not sit. Wear sunscreen, sunglasses, hat and scarf. This protects you from the intense sun. If you’ve taken off your layers while walking, wear them while you are in the shadows and protect yourself from the cold.

Extra Money for Personal Expenditure

We suggest you to bring some extra  money for extra expenses like drinks, shopping and tipping, as the trip cost does not include the cost of extra expenses.
Emergency Fund and Optional Activities
We also request you to set aside USD 200 (or an amount equivalent to USD 200) as an emergency fund. This fund is kept as security money during the trek and will be utilized in the case of any changes in the itinerary caused by unforeseen natural disaster (which is very rare though).

Tipping during the trek

You can tip your service providers to show your gratitude and satisfaction. You can tip your service providers like guides, porters, drivers and waiters. The tip amount entirely depends upon your wish. However, there is a custom of tipping 10% of the total trip cost in the ratio of 60:40 (60% of the total tip amount to the guide and 40% to the porter) to the guide and porter.

Health, Medication and Medical Facilities during the trek

The Everest Base Camp treks demand excellent stamina, and the best health conditions as most of the days require 6-8 hours walk. Therefore, we suggest you get a physical examination at east 4-6 weeks prior to the trek and seek advice, medication as well as the permission from your doctor, before the trip. We also recommend you take expert guidance from your local General Practitioner with expertise in  altitude illness and travel medicines.  Please get screened for hypertension, diabetes mellitus, anemia, ulcer disease, cardiovascular disease and lung related problems. Any person with a strong family history or over the age of 40 should make cardiovascular risk assessment. Getting a good dental checkup and identifying medicines that you are allergic to are a must. Make sure you are immunized and vaccinated against measles, mumps, rubella, tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, varicella, Hemophilus influenza type b infection, Hepatitis A and B Typhoid, rabies, yellow fever, cholera, meningococcal disease and encephalitis. In the absence of GP, please seek advice from travel clinics.

Please carry your regular personal medicines along with a First Aid kit. Also add blister kit, sunscreen, bandages, insect repellent containing DEET, topical antibiotic cream, iodine tablets and /or water filter, Diamox or Acetazolamide, Acetaminophen or Tylenol for analgesia, Ibuprofen or Advil for analgesia and as an anti-inflammatory agent, Immodium or Lomotil for diarrhea, Afrin-a nasal decongestant, Pepcid or Zantac for heartburn, an antibiotic, especially a Quinolone such as Ciprofloxacin or Leavaquin, pain medicine such as Tylenol with codeine or Hydrocodone and if you are prone to exercise-induced Asthma or Asthma associated with bronchitis or upper respiratory infections, bring Asthma inhaler. Kindly inform us regarding your present health condition, medical situation, preceding illness and the medicines you are taking, so that we can get prepared for emergencies. 

Most of the general hospitals and private clinics are available in Kathmandu, therefore, finding a good medical facility isn’t difficult in the capital. However, the Himalayan Rescue Association (HRA) operates aid posts in Pheriche (Khumbu) managed by expatriate physicians, during the peak trekking seasons. With an aim to reduce the deaths among trekkers, it provides free advices to trekkers on altitude sickness, equipments and the condition of the trekking routes. 

Safety and Security during the trek

Your safety is our priority, while you are on the Everest Base Camp trek. Therefore,  the team leader is given a full authority to amend or cancel the itinerary in the case of unforeseen circumstances, like sudden weather changes, natural disaster, bad health of a group member or any kind of violent protest or demonstrations.

For the security of your belongings, like passport, air tickets, travelers checks, cash, and other valuable items, it is highly recommended that you bring a neck wallet or a money belt to carry these items. Try not to bring any valuable belongings like jewelry. Even if you bring, we recommend you to safely store in the deposit boxes in the hotel in Kathmandu. Also bring a lock to secure our luggage.
Remember! Neither the team leader nor the company will be responsible for the security involved during any extra activities not included in the itinerary.  

Travel Insurance

Getting a travel insurance is a must, if you are looking for the Everest Base Camp Trek. Your travel insurance should cover all the additional expenses that might result due to various health issues, injuries or accidents (together with air ambulance, helicopter rescue or other treatment cost). Your insurance policy should also cover all extra activities that you are planning to during your stay in Nepal. Moreover, the policy should also cover death, misplaced luggage, theft and liability, cancellations, medical treatment (hospital charges, medicine charges and the doctor’s fee) as well as the repatriation cost. This trek takes you over the 4000m, therefore, make sure that you get an insurance policy that covers the treks that go over 4000m.

Additional rules during the trek

We expect you to follow the rules and regulations of our country and not get involved in any of the illegal activities, during your stay in Nepal. Possession of illegal drugs and getting involved with sex workers is strictly prohibited during the trekking. If found guilty, the team leader holds all right to expel you from the group to free your group from the possible risk.

Local Dress during the trek

We recommend you to pack loose, lightweight, long clothing to help you say cool during the summer. However, we recommend you to avoid revealing dresses like hot pants/ shorts/skirts/singlet/tank tops, especially during the trek and while visiting the holy sites.
