Spectacular views of the snow-capped Himalayan mountains greet us as our flight tends to head north-east towards the small hill airstrip of Tenzing-Hillary Airport. Shortly after landing at Lukla (2,850m), we shall gather our remaining trek members and begin our incredible EBC trek with the first steps into the luxuriant Khumbu region. Initially, our winding trail descends down to Chaurikharka and then goes through Cheplung, ThadoKoshi&Chhuthawa villages one by one.

Soon after finishing our appetizing yet nutritious breakfast, we move down from Phakdingand tumble our way towards Bhotekoshi River. Next is the small village of Jorsale which will be reached after crossing a high suspension bridge and walking for about 2 hours alongside a striking trek trail. Before marching forward, we will need to check out our trekking permits at the Sagarmatha National Park check post which is located at Jorsale village. Upon finishing our official formalities, we continue on with our trek and enter the stunning Sagarmatha National Park. Now our trail drops gently down to a long suspension bridge covered with fluttering Buddhist prayer flags. After crossing this bridge, we shall walk for another 2 to 3 hours on a steep Himalayan terrain and later arrive at the outstanding Sherpa town of Namche Bazaar.

    Stay overnight at Namche Bazaar.

  • Day 03: Rest Day at Namche
  • As scheduled, today we are planned to stay at Namche Bazaar for acclimatization purposes. Situated at a high altitude of 3,450 meters above sea level, Namche Bazaar is the perfect place to help our bodies acclimatize and adjust to the environmental changes of such high altitudes. Due to change in weather, altitude and the rigorous exercise of walking terrains, a day is taken off the schedule for trekkers to rest and enjoy the sites around Namche Bazaar. During this day, trekkers can hike little up towards the Everest View Hotel for spectacular views of Mt. Everest and Mt. Amadablam alongside others snow-capped giants. Lastly, the major aim of this day is to prevent any possible symptoms of High Altitude Sickness which may hamper the remaining trek days.

    Stay overnight at Namche Bazaar.

  • Day 04: Trek from Namche to Tengboche (3860 m AMSL)
  • As the sun shines over the beautiful hills and valleys of Khumbu region, you need to wake up and have your breakfast as we plan on leaving Namche Bazaar today. Following a trail that traverses from Choi Gang to Kyanjuma Foundation, we descent down to a suspension bridge across DudhKoshi River. After crossing the bridge and passing a few tea houses en route, the trail reaches PhunkiThanga. Pointing towards the next destination, pleasant walk uphill begins that goes through a blended trail of forest and shrubs.

  • Day 06: Rest day at Pheriche
  • You have to keep in mind that while trekking at very high altitude, your body tires out faster and needs time to recuperate itself. Hence, just like Namche Bazaar, we are going to stay in Pheriche for the day being and give our body the much-needed rest which it solely deserves. It is a free day so either you can rest or roam around the surrounding areas of Pheriche village. That is totally up to you. But we suggest going out and enjoying the natural surroundings while taking memorable photographs will be more enjoyable than just sitting inside your lodge/tea house.
