Our trail takes us first over the Dudhkoshi River via a long suspension bridge, and then through a beautiful pine forest to Monjo, about two hours away. Soon thereafter, we will approach the entrance to Sagarmatha National Park for a brief permit check and then descend to Dudh Kosi River (spotting Mani stones along the way!) en route to Jorsale. Lunch will be served here, and then it’s uphill to Namche. Our path along the riverbank is flanked by two crossings, one of which is the Hillary Suspension Bridge. It’s a tough climb up the hill to our resting place, but you’ll be rewarded in Namche Bazaar with your first glimpse of Everest in its majesty.

DAY 4 - NAMCHE BAZAAR: REST AND ACCLIMATIZATION DAY
Altitude: 3,440m/11,283ft At this point, we take a well-deserved break! Today will be spent resting and allowing our bodies to become acclimatized to the lofty altitude. There’s an optional 2 hour hike to Everest View Point, an uphill walk that will help speed acclimatization. Otherwise, spend the day exploring Namche Bazaar. Check out the Sherpa museum for an overview of the Sherpa culture and history of mountaineering. On Saturdays, the Hatt Bazaar is open for trading and an intimate look at the locals’ marketplace. It is part of the larger Namche Bazaar, a shopping hub filled with all manner of trekking and mountaineering clothing and equipment.

DAY 5 - NAMCHE BAZAAR TO TENGBOCHE
Altitude: 3,870m/12,684ft Walking Distance: 10km (6 hours) Breakfast in Namche Bazaar fuels us for another day of trekking towards Everest Base Camp today! Breathtaking views of the Himalayas - Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku and Kwangde - are some of the highlights not be missed. A short drop takes us to the riverside, then it’s across the river upwards through the forest pass. Brace your legs for a continual uphill trek at this point, alternating between a gradual grade and some seriously steep ground! Our destination, Tengboche, is known as one of the most beautiful places in the Everest region. Its views, which include Ama Dablam, are legendary. We’ll stop in on the Tengboche monastery, which is one of the largest in Khumbu. Nourish your spirit with a guided tour of the monastery grounds, followed by chanting and prayer with the resident Buddhist monks.

DAY 6 - TENGBOCHE TO DINGBOCHE
Altitude: 4,400m/14,435ft Walking Distance: 11km (6 hours) Our trek today kicks off with a walk through the rhododendron forest to Deboche followed by a bridge over the raging Imja Khol River. We’ll pass the valley wall and then traverse the plains to Pangboche village, the biggest settlement of Sherpas in the region. Enjoy a great opportunity to observe a typical Sherpa village and have lunch with the locals! The intrepid can brave a brief hike to the Pangboche monastery, one of the oldest in the area. Our afternoon trek will be a difficult one, as the landscape gives way to dry, deserted mountains and we hike towards Dingboche.
7
DAY 7 - DINGBOCHE: REST AND ACCLIMATIZATION DAY
Altitude: 4,400m/14,435ft This is your chance to rest up before the last leg of our adventure! Savor a full day of exploring Dingboche and the surrounding valleys of Chhukung and Imja, the latter of which links with Island Peak, the high passes of Amphu Laptsa, and Makalu Barun National Park. Taking an optional trek to the valleys will pay off in rewarding views, but taking it easy is the most important thing today. You’ll need your rest for the penultimate day of ascent tomorrow.
8
DAY 8 - DINGBOCHE TO LOBUCHE
Altitude: 4,900m/16,076ft Walking Distance: 11-12 km (6-7 hours) From here on forth, the trek will move more gradually be more challenging, due to the higher altitude. We’ll pass Dungla, but not before a tough, steep walk to the top of a high hill. Here are the memorial stupas dedicated to the climbers and trekkers who lost their lives to Everest over the years. The next part of our adventure brings over craggy mountain terrain to Lobuche, a small settlement with amazing views of Mt. Lobuche, Mt. Pumari and the Nuptse. Prepare to snuggle up for a cold night, as we are now almost three miles above sea level and the evenings can be downright chilly!

DAY 9 - LOBUCHE TO GORAKSHEP AND EVEREST BASE CAMP, EBC TO GOREKSHEP
Altitude: 5180m/16,994ft (Gorekshep) & 5364m/17598 (EBC) Walking Distance: 15km (6-8 hours) This is it! Our big day kicks off with an initial, relatively easy trek from Lobuche to Gorekshep. The subsequent, straight trail to Everest Base Camp is harder, involving rocky dunes and moraine, formed accumulation of unconsolidated glacial debris. On the way to our destination, we’ll approach the famed Khumbu Glacier and icefall, located on the slopes of Everest. At the Base Camp, our goal, you’ll have the chance (during the spring climbing season) to meet climbers attempting to scale the mountain’s summit. Break out your cameras for unbelievable views of breathtaking beauty. As the afternoon sun starts to wane, we’ll head back to Gorekshep for some much-needed rest and relaxation after a grueling and busy day.
10
DAY 10 - GOREKSHEP TO KALAPATHAR AND PHERICHE
Altitude: 5,545m/18,192ft (Kalapathar) & 4,320m/14,173ft (Pheriche) Walking Distance: 12-13km (5-6 hours) We’ll wake before dawn today to trek towards Kalapathar (which means “black rock”) for a fiery, glorious sunrise over Mt. Everest. The day’s first light will illuminate your spectacular view of Nuptse Nup, Changtse and Lhotse.This may be, of the whole journey, your most opportune moment to snap amazing pictures of Everest and its neighboring peaks. Afterwards, it’s back to Gorekshep for breakfast and down in the direction of Pheriche, our nighttime stop. Our pace will be a lot brisker as we descend, and the walking is easier going this way.
11
DAY 11 - PHERICHE TO NAMCHE
Altitude: 3,440m/11,284ft Walking Distance: 13-15km (7-8 hours) The walk from Pheriche back to Tengboche is mainly downhill, although it does, counterintuitively, require an hour scaling a hill. We’ll be in Namche by late afternoon and off to bed before our last day on the mountain.
12
DAY 12 - NAMCHE TO PHAKDING AND LUKLA
Altitude: 2,800m/9,184ft Walking Distance: 16km (6-7 hours) After breakfast, we trek toward the Hillary Suspension Bridge and then pass through several local villages. Our arrival in Lukla brings an evening in our last Tea House and, traditionally, a party with your trekking crew: you made it!

Tips

NOTES FOR TREKKERS
NAMASTE!!
We are very pleased that you have planned your trek with Namaste Nomad. The idea of this handout is to furnish you with information for your pre-trek preparations.
Firstly, we recommend that you travel light. A good sized duffel bag with a top length zipper that can lock is best, together with a day pack for carrying personal items on the trek. An extra smaller bag would be handy to carry back your souvenirs after the trip.
AFTER ARRIVAL IN KATHMANDU   TREK BRIEFING: On your arrival in Kathmandu, we will arrange to meet for a pre-trek briefing. Full information on all aspects of your trek, questions and doubts will be discussed. On trek your guide will give you more details about the route, villages, people and other information regarding the trek.
  PACKING: Please bear in mind the domestic airline baggage weight restrictions when packing. In this matter we request you to try and limit your baggage to around 15 kgs. (About 35 lbs). You may leave behind part of your luggage in your hotel or our locker room before the trek, in Kathmandu. All baggages are to be clearly marked and locked. Kindly refrain from carrying or wearing valuables on the trek. You may leave them behind at the safety deposit box at your hotel or with us. (In case one has extra baggage weight then one needs to pay for it directly by clients at the airport during check in.)
HOW TO PACK: Your clothes and equipment should fall into the following 4 categories:
  1. What you are going to leave behind in Kathmandu.
  2. What you are going to wear on the trail.
  3. What you are going to carry in your day pack.
  4. What you would like the porters to carry for you.
Excess clothes and luggage can be stored in your hotel's storeroom, and valuables in the safety deposit box. Please label your luggage and make sure to take a receipt from the front desk of your hotel for all the things you would like to leave behind while you are away.
ON TREK   FOOD AND DRINKS: On the trek the food will consist of the food available at the lodges. Menu will be available at the lodges and the guest will have a choice of the food they like or as per the guides choice /suggestion. (We recommend vegetarian meals on treks as the mode of transportation of meats are not hygienic in these areas) The water provided is pressure boiled. Water bottles may be filled at night so that you have cool water to drink the following day. Mineral water in bottles can be bought on many trek routes.
* For water, beverages and extra food the clients need to pay directly to the lodge .
2. YOUR STAFF ON THE TRIP: Will consist of one English speaking Guide who will be wholly responsible for the execution of the trip once it hits the trail. Sherpa(s) and reliable porter(s) will assist him.
4. WE WILL PROVIDE: For persons who purchase the whole vacation package from us, we will also provide pick-up and drop at Kathmandu Airport, domestic surface / air transport, welcome drink and hotel in Kathmandu with breakfast. The price of the trip does not include the hire of sleeping bags and down parkas (any trekking gear), personal expenses like laundry and bar bills, tips and gratuities.
5. A TYPICAL DAY: A normal day on trek would start at about 6:30 / 07:00 am with a wakeup call. (Pls inform guide if a wake up call in required). Breakfast will have to be ordered before one goes to bed and the breakfast will be served at the dining room (common) and we advise guests to pack their bags so that the Sherpa boys can load them on the porters baskets.
The morning part of the trip would begin after breakfast and last about three to four hours when a stop for lunch would be made. The afternoon part of the trip will be another two to three hours to camp. Relax through the evening until dinner time.
6. SANITATION AND PERSONAL HYGIENE: A latrine, which is usually outside the lodge, is the most common type of toilet all through out the trek. The toilets are very basic and no flush or running water is available in the toilets. Please bring you own Toilet paper. (Now a day’s most lodges have toilet inside the hotel premises) In places where rooms with attach bath are there we will provide these facilities. However do note that these are not available in all places. Only few places in the lower altitude have these facilities.
7. DAILY WEAR: Your guide can help you plan your daily wear before each day's walk. Please carry an extra shirt or a T-shirt and a light jacket in your backpack. The mountain air is cold, so you can keep dry and warm after sweats and chills. Rain gear also need to be carried in your day pack.
8. WHAT TO CARRY DURING THE TREK: Your daypack, preferably waterproof should be light, small and comfortable. All small personal items like toilet paper, water bottle, medicines, extra shirt, light warm wears, rain gear, gloves, head torch etc, that may be needed for the days trek should be packed. Your duffel will be carried by porters whom you will not meet till one reaches the lodge.
GENERAL MATTERS: Your personal belongings will be looked after by our staff so please help them by not leaving them unattended in villages and other public places.
The common dinning room has a fireplace which is usually lit at round 6:30 / 07:00 PM in March - June and from 5:30 / 6:00pm in October – November. (At lower altitude below 3000 meters the fire might be lit later and if it warm then they might avoid lighting it)
We do not want to add to the large scale deforestation problem in the country. You will find the Nepalese people friendly, charming, inquisitive and quite ignorant about the west. We request you to maintain and follow the local customs.
Hand outs by trekkers has led to increase begging especially among village children, affecting their independent-spirited nature. As dental hygiene is a big problem no chocolate and sweets for the children, please. The guide can advise you if you are keen to help locally.
MONEY ON TREK: You may want to buy drinks at wayside shops and souvenirs from the natives. Small change should be carried. As customary, we can help discuss in detail in the pre-trek briefing. Money for the extra food and drinks also needs to be carried.
