Flight time: 35 min
After a short morning flight to Lukla, you will meet your guide and porter. Begin your trek with an easy walk through Chaurikharka village and descent towards Dudhkoshi Ghat (2,530m/8,300ft). The trail follows the bank of the Dudhkoshi River until Phakding (2,652m/8,700ft), where we will be staying for the night to acclimatize. Enjoy your free time in Phakding, a popular stopping point.
Day 02: Trek from Phakding to Namche bazaar.
Walking Distance: 10-12km (7 hours)
Breakfast in Phakding before start trekking to Namche Bazaar, the biggest sherpa village in Nepal. Our trail takes you 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 03: Rest in Namche Bazaar, explore and acclimatize.
This day is a free day and you can use this day to acclimatize yourself with the environment. There is 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.

Walking Distance: 10km (6 hours)
You are heading towards EBC after breakfast in Namche Bazaar. Awesome views of the Himalayas – Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku and Kwangde – are some of the highlights of the day. A short drop takes us to the riverside and then it across the river upwards through the forest pass. 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 will stop in on the Tengboche monastery, which is one of the largest in Khumbu. Take a look at the monastery grounds, followed by chanting and prayer with the resident Buddhist monks.
Day 05: Trek from Tengboche to Dingboche.
Walking Distance: 11km (6 hours)
It is one of different day since you are going to trek through the rhododendron forest to Deboche followed by a bridge over the raging Imja Khol River.

Enjoy a great opportunity to observe a typical Sherpa village and have lunch with the locals. Optionally you can take short hike to the Pangboche monastery which is one of the oldest in the area. Trekking after here can be a bit harder as you are entering into dry the landscape towards deserted mountains. Finally, we hike towards Dingboche.
Day 06: Trek from Dingboche to Lobuche.
Walking Distance: 11km (6 hours)
As you are ascending up, be brave to move ahead for the adventure which brings over craggy mountain terrain to Lobuche. This is a small settlement with breathtaking views of Mt. Lobuche, Mt. Pumari and the Nuptse. Take your warm stuffs to put on because it can be quite cold during the night over here.
Day 07: Trek from Lobuche to Gorakshep, EBC and back to Gorakshep.
Walking Distance: 10km (7 hours)
Trek to Gorekshep is one of easy parts. But from Gorakshep to Everest Base Camp is harder. It is so because it involves rocky dunes and moraine, formed accumulation of unconsolidated glacial debris. When we finish up visiting EBC we will checkout the Khumbu Glacier and icefall, located on the slopes of Everest. At the Base Camp, if you are trekking here in the spring, you can meet climbers attempting to scale the mountain’s summit. Break out your cameras for unbelievable views of breathtaking beauty and we will back to Gorakshep for overnight stay.
Day 08: Trek from Gorak Shep to Kala Patthar and back to Lobuche .
Walking Distance: 7-8 hours
We prepare for an early morning departure, amid pre-dawn darkness and cold temperatures (-10 to -14 C). Plus, there is always the potential for chilly winds which are quite common. Familiar peaks such as Lingtren, Khumbutse, and Changtse tower to the east even as Everest begins to reveal itself. But, it is upon reaching Kala Patthar that we get to see360 degree up-close and formidable views of Mt. Everest. We take pictures, enjoy the magnificent mountain panorama, and then return back to Lobuche for a good night’s rest. Overnight in Lobuche.
Day 09: Trek from Lobuche to Dingboche.
Walking Distance: 5 hours
From the Lobuche you start challenging ascend on rock and you fell colder since up high in thin air to Kalapather. Your reward for this hard work, however, is one of the finest panoramic views of the Himalayas to be found! The stone huts of Dingboche, a historic summer village are there. Relish the views of Makalu in the distance, knowing that we start climbing training tomorrow.
Day 10: Trek from Dingboche to Chhukung.
Walking Distance: 3 hours
From Dingboche, we descend gradually to Imja Khola valley, followed by another descent to Chhukung, a small summer settlement. After reaching Chhukung we will also check our equipment in order to get ready for our ultimate climb. Overnight in Chhukung.
Day 11: Resting, acclimatizing and exploring around Chukhung.
Walking Distance: 2 hours
Today is a day to explore in Chukhung village. Where you can climb the chukhung ri and back to chukhung. While on the top of Chukkung Ri, you can take a deep look at around to explore real remote and Himalayan scenes.
Day 12 : Trek from Chhukung to Island Peak base camp (5,200m/17,060ft)
Walking Distance: 3 hours
Accommodation: Tented Camp.
The trek to Island Peak Base Camp is on a fairly steep trail. First, we climb south then turn east to the main line of the valley. We then walk on a winding path below the southern flank of the moraine from the Lhotse Glacier. Next, we continue walking on a pleasant trail along a streamside. The route to the Amphu Labtsa lies to the southeast. A crisscross route through the Imja and Lhotse glacier moraines leads to a wide valley flanking the SW side of Island Peak. Overnight at Island Peak Base Camp.
Day 13: From Island Peak base camp to the top of Island Peak summit (6,160m/20,205ft), back to Chhukung: 13 hours.
We wake up early today at around 12 to 1 am and have our breakfast before beginning our climb. It is important we reach the summit before noon because in the afternoon the strong winds in the highlands might become a barrier for a successful summit. The trail moves up beyond the base camp for several hundred meters before striking off the steep hillside. Initially sandy, the path soon turns to grass before becoming boulder strewn. As we climb up the hill, we will see that the slope narrows and the trail enter a steep rock channel. We climb the rock gully. This is not difficult, but there are several short rock steps to climb before we emerge on the right side of the gully. The route then follows a ridgeline, which leads to an exhilarating and exposed traverse onto the snout of the summit glacier. The guides will fix a rope when required. A steep snow slope leads us onto the summit ridge. Both fixed rope and man rope will be used during the climb for safety. We use fixed rope after successfully climbing on rock. The length of the rope will usually be 350 m. However, the length depends on the time of the season and the crevasses. There are two newly formed crevasses which are approximately 3 and 4 meters long. We will be using ladders to cross them. After enjoying the summit views and taking pictures, we descend all the way to Chhukung where some of our crew are waiting for us. We celebrate on our successful Island Peak climb.
Day 14: Trek from Chukung to Deboche.
Altitude: 3720 m/12,205ft
Walking Distance: 6 hours.
We retrace the original steps of our ascent as we make our way back down the mountain again. The fascinating culture of the Sherpas is on display once more – don’t miss a peak at the yak-herding stations.
Day 15 : Trek from Deboche to Namche Bazaar.
Walking Distance: 5 hours.
We trek down pass the various shops set up by Tibetans and then descend through forest of blue pine to cross the Dudh Kosi again at Phunki (3,250m). We make another ascent on a switchback trail, sometimes made quite dusty by yak trains, to reach the spectacularly sited Thyangboche Monastery (3,867m) from where there are brilliant views of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam and Taboche to the north and northeast, Thamserku and Kantega to the southeast and Kwangde to the southwest. Thyangboche Monastery was seriously damaged by fire in 1989 but has since been rebuilt and there will be time to visit both the monasteries and a museum.
Day 16: Trek from Namche Bazaar to Lukla.
Walking Distance: 5 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 a proper hotel and, traditionally, a party with your trekking crew: you made it! Thanks to great teamwork and perseverance, you’ve accomplished a physical feat of which others only dream. This is your last night on the mountain, which can be bittersweet.
