After breakfast, enjoy a full day sightseeing tour in Kathmandu. The tour includes a visit to Kathmandu Durbar Square, Monkey Temple, Pashupatinath Temple and Boudhanath Stupa. In the afternoon, return to the hotel where you will have some free time to shop for any trekking gear (in the Thamel area) you need. 

Overnight: Kathmandu (Standard or Premium Hotel Option) 
Meals included: Breakfast

After an early breakfast at the hotel in Kathmandu, transfer to Kathmandu airport for an early morning scenic flight (approx. 35 minutes) to the small mountain airport of Lukla. After arriving in Lukla, your trekking guide will introduce you to the porters who will assist with carrying your luggage throughout the trek. Afterwards, the trekking will begin, following the mountainside on the left bank of the Dudh Koshi river. Today’s trekking is easy and takes about 3-4 hours to reach Phakding where you will spend the night.

Overnight: Mountain Lodge
Meals included: Breakfast;Lunch;Dinner

After having breakfast at the lodge, start trekking toward Namche Bazaar. The trek follows the Dudh Koshi River which you will cross a few times before stopping in Jorsale for lunch. After lunch, continue through the pines for a few hours before the spectacular views of Namche Bazaar appear ahead. Namche Bazaar (3440m) is surrounded on three sides by mountain ranges and opens out only where it faces the Dudh Koshi. The village is a central hub of the area. Food, drinks and even mountain climbing equipment may be purchased here. 

Overnight: Mountain Lodge
Meals included: Breakfast;Lunch;Dinner

The Namche Bazaar is tucked away between two ridges, amidst the giant peaks of the Khumbu and has an abundance of lodges, tea shops and souvenir shops - not to mention a magnificent outlook. It is an ideal place to spend a rest day for acclimatising to the high altitude before heading towards Everest Base Camp. Today to assist in the acclimatisation, you will walk up to Khumjung Village through Everest View Hotel in Syangboche to see a stunning view of the Himalayas including Mt. Everest. The Khumjung is densely populated by the Sherpa community and there is an old monastery which you will visit before returning to the lodge in Namche Bazaar.

Overnight: Mountain Lodge
Meals included: Breakfast;Lunch;Dinner

This morning’s trekking offers excellent panorama views of Thamserku, Kantega, and Kusum Kangrib. After walking a few hours along relatively flat zigzagging paths, we descend to the river and arrive at Phunki Tenga. Afterwards climb through Rhododendron Forest to the Tengboche Monastery. Situated at 3,867m, the monastery is the largest gompa in the Khumbu region of Nepal. Check into the lodge and spend the afternoon looking around the Monastery/area or at leisure. 

Overnight: Mountain Lodge
Meals included: Breakfast;Lunch;Dinner

Begin today’s trekking by descending through Rhododendron Forest to the Imja Khola River where you will cross an exciting suspension bridge. Pass by a long Mani stone wall to enter the village of Pangboche before continuing through summer pastures to Dingboche village. Check into the lodge and enjoy your evening at leisure.

Overnight: Mountain Lodge
Meals included: Breakfast;Lunch;Dinner

An important acclimatisation/rest day today with a casual walk where you will witness the breathtaking views of the North face of Ama Dablam and the Lhotse-Nuptse ridge as you explore this beautiful valley that leads up to Island Peak. The walk is short with a good chance to relax in the afternoon.

Overnight: Mountain Lodge
Meals included: Breakfast;Lunch;Dinner

From Dingboche, ascend the small ridge above the Pheriche valley. From the stupa at the top, Taweche and Cholatse (6440m) make for a pretty striking scene; they seem to lean forwards from across the valley in the west. To the north, Lobuje Peak (6119m) and the snowfields of the Cho La are the kings of the skyline. The walking will now be fairly flat on wide-open fields. Late in the morning you will cross the Khumbu Khola at Dughla and take a light lunch at the foot of the huge terminal moraines of the Khumbu Glacier flowing off Everest.

In the afternoon, there will be a solid and quite steep climb on a rocky trail to the top of the moraines. On the crest of the ridge, you’ll pass a line of memorial cairns (stacks of stones), built in memory of the Sherpas and climbers who have died on various Everest expeditions over the last fifty or so years. From here the view is downright spectacular once again, with Pumori (7145m), Lingtren (6697m), Khumbutse (6623m), and across the border in Tibet, Changtse (7550m) surrounding you. Then follow the valley stream to the lodge at Lobuche, arriving early afternoon.

Overnight: Mountain Lodge
Meals included: Breakfast;Lunch;Dinner

The day you’ve been waiting for – the legendary Everest Base Camp. From Lobuche, follow the broad valley that runs parallel to Khumbu Glacier. When you reach the moraines of Changri Nup Glacier, you will make a series of small ascents and descents over a rocky trail lined with cairns that eventually leads to the surprising glacial sands of Gorak Shep (5160m) – reached after about three hours of walking. Here you have lunch and leave all your belongings at the lodge where you’ll stay tonight.

Now’s the time to head to Everest Base Camp! The trek to base camp takes around three hours. From base camp you won’t get views of Mount Everest, however you will be able to see glaciers, caves, lakes and what’s regarded as technically the most dangerous and hardest section to climb Everest, the Everest Ice Fall that flows from the Western Cwm. Trek back to the lodge in Gorak Shep for an early night - tomorrow morning is one to remember.

Overnight: Mountain Lodge
Meals included: Breakfast;Lunch;Dinner

Rise early this morning to avoid the morning clouds as we climb to Kala Patthar peak (5545m.) to witness the best views of Everest. These panoramic views of Mt. Everest at sunrise are truly incredible. You will also be able to see a number of iconic Himalayan mountain peaks like Mt. Pumori, Mt. Lingtren, Mt. Khumbetse, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Ama Dablam, Mt. Thamserku and many more.

The ascent is quite steep, so start very slowly and try to ascend at a steady rhythmic pace. Kala Patar is the rocky hilltop below Pumori. It’s a tough walk because of the altitude, but the view from the top will surpass your wildest imagination. Hike back around one hour to Gorak Shep to enjoy breakfast, pack your bags and set off to Lobuche and Thugla, where you will stop for lunch. Then you’ll cross the Khumbu Khola and head down the valley below Cholatse to Pheriche, where you will stop for the night. Today is a tough walking day however it’s all downhill from here.

Overnight: Mountain Lodge
Meals included: Breakfast;Lunch;Dinner

After having breakfast at the lodge, start trekking back towards Namche Bazaar. Today’s trekking is at an easier descent passing through Rhododendron Forest before reaching Tengboche for lunch. Tengboche is a small village with a famous monastery offering you the splendid view of Ama Dablam, green hills and river views. After lunch trek back to Namche to spend the night at the lodge.

Overnight: Mountain Lodge
Meals included: Breakfast;Lunch;Dinner

Leaving Namche, descend through the forest towards the Dudh Kosi for our last day of the trek, and continue the return journey re-crossing the river a number of times. Retracing your steps along the valley, pass through a variety of settlements and forests before a gentle 45-minute climb to Lukla. Savour the final mountain sunset of the trek as you complete this exhilarating journey of the highest mountain range in the world. Tonight is a great chance to enjoy a few celebratory drinks with the rest of the crew before flying back to Kathmandu in the morning.

Overnight: Mountain Lodge
Meals included: Breakfast;Lunch;Dinner

TOUR GUIDE VS. TOUR LEADER
Tour Guide: 
Often locals with intimate knowledge of an area, its culture, and history. Their role entails providing commentary, routing the tour, and seeing that people have a good time. They are a licensed, qualified expert who supplies specific information on history, art, architecture and culture of the city/village/attraction in which he or she is guiding the tour. The guide meets the group at the required place and leaves the group at the end of the tour, they do not travel with the group. 
  
Tour Leader: 
An experienced person tasked with ensuring the smooth operation of tours, as well as providing practical support to passengers throughout the whole trip. Their role primarily includes assisting with accommodation, transportation between locations, and communication with tour guides in each stop. A tour leader may provide general guidance around a city or village, and offer information on the place visited on the bus, however they are not required to have specific knowledge on art, architecture, or history. They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and if caught doing so, can be fined.
