Thank you for showing interest in going for a lifetime of an experience "The Everest Base Camp Trek cum Expedition – 16 nights 17 days"
The details of the itinerary are as follows:
After flying in to Lukla, you will start trek to Phakding and enter into the
home of Sherpa community perched in the nook and corner of the valleys known
as Khumbu. After Phakding the trail gradually climb to Jorsale where you
will stop for a while at the Park Office and take the steep but gradual walk
to Namche Bazar. You spend two nights in Namche bazaar. While at Namche
Bazar visit the villages at Thame (3811m) and Khumjung. Thame village was
the original home of the famous climber Tenging Norgey who reached the
summit of Mt. Everest for the first time in human history with Sir Edmund
Hillary. The extra days at 3400 meter allows you to acclimitize in the
increasingly thin air as you go up higher. After Namche Bazar the trail
drops down to Dudh Koshi River; cross the small hamlet of Punki Thanka and
climb another steep trail that gradually takes you to the famous monastery
Thyangboche monastery is famous for Mani Rimdu festival that usually happens
in October. On this festive day the monks perform special dance and the head
lama does the prayer. Many trekkers gather on this day to watch the
festival. The trail from Thyangboche gently drops down to Dudh Kosi river
and follows it. You will reach the summer settlement of Dingboche. Next day
walk down the valley of Chukung; It is a short walk. Exploring around the
area. There are several high viewpoints to see the panoramic view of the
region including the icefall at Amphulapcha. Very close by is the base camp
of Island peak; it is one of the most popular trekking peak.
Another two days at 4300 meter around Dingboche also provides sufficient
time to acclimitize your body. Lobouje is your last stop on the way to
Kalapattar and base camp of Mt. Everest. Depending upon weather and
logistical condition you may stop at Gorakshep for an overnight or you may
go straight to climb Kalapattar to see the close up stunning view of
Mt.Everest. If you are energetic and have time you may visit the base camp of Mt. Everest.
The high point in this trek is the majestic view of Mt.Everest and
surrounding lofty Himalayan peaks in the back drop of deep blue sky. The
grandeur of nature that you see would be one of the most memorable times in your life. After completion of your journey you follow same trail back to
Lukla. The trek ends with flight to Kathmandu.
Highlight: Everest 8848m - the highest point on earth. The stone-walled fields and houses of ancient villages steeped in history and tradition,
golden-roofed monasteries set amid stunning mountain scenery, the Yak and wild animals and of course to see the Sherpas.
