Day 2: Fly to Lukla and start trekking to Phakding
Today we catch the short early morning flight from Kathmandu to Lukla (2,800m) and start trekking to Phakding (2,652m). Descending out of Lukla the trail gently winds its way along the river and serves as an easy introduction to the harder days ahead. We overnight at Phakding at one of the many comfortable trekking lodges.

Day 3: Trek from Phakding to Namche Bazaar

| OVERNIGHT: Namche Bazaar – trekking lodge
| MEALS: Breakfast

Day 4: Namche Bazaar. Acclimatisation day
Today is a free day in Namche Bazaar for acclimatisation. This colourful Sherpa town is a great place to spend time exploring.

Of course, if you’re not too tired, there are plenty of interesting and scenic day walks you can do if wish. We overnight at a lodge in Namche Bazaar.
| OVERNIGHT: Namche Bazaar – trekking lodge
| MEALS: Breakfast

Day 5: Trek from Namche Bazaar to Thengboche
Leaving Namche Bazaar behind our goal today is the village of Thengboche, which lies on top of another ridge. There are several ascents and descents through Rhododendron forests down to the suspension bridge at Phunki Tenga (3,250m). Then we start the climb and it really is a strenuous climb, as now we have to fight against the altitude as well at the steepness of the trail. Eventually we crest the ridge and arrive at Thengboche (3,870m), from where, on a clear day, the views of Everest and Lhotse are magnificent. Thengboche is also the site of a large Buddhist monastery, which is certainly worth a visit. We overnight at a lodge in Thengboche.
| OVERNIGHT: Tengboche – trekking lodge
| MEALS: Breakfast

Day 6: Trek from Tengboche to Dingboche
Today’s trekking takes us through beautiful Rhododendron forests as we follow the river up the Imja valley towards Dingboche. Along this stretch of the trail there is a good possibility of spotting the elusive musk deer, an endangered species indigenous to the area. Leaving the forests behind, we end the day with a steep climb up to Dingboche (4,410m). We overnight at a lodge in Dingboche.
| OVERNIGHT: Dingboche – trekking lodge
| MEALS: Breakfast

Day 7: Dingboche – acclimatisation day
We spend the day in Dingboche acclimatising to the high altitude. This beautiful Sherpa village is a patchwork of small fields enclosed by stonewalls and offers wonderful views of the surrounding mountains. If you don’t feel like resting you can head up the valley towards Chukung for even better views. We overnight at a lodge in Dingboche.
| OVERNIGHT: Dingboche – trekking lodge
| MEALS: Breakfast

Day 8: Trek from Dingboche to Lobuche
Climbing up from Dingboche we follow the valley high up on one side until we reach Dughla (4,620m) and the entrance to the Khumbu valley. Heading up the Khumbu valley, a steep climb takes us over the Thokla Pass (4,830m) then we follow the edge of the glacial moraine onto Lobuche (4,910m). We overnight at a lodge in Lobuche.
| OVERNIGHT: Lobuche – trekking lodge
| MEALS: Breakfast

Day 9: Trek from Lobuche to Gorak Shep and Kalar Pattar (flexible day)
As we continue along the Khumbu valley the unfolding mountain panoramas are quite simply breathtaking. Reaching the Lobuche Pass (5,110m) we continue onto Gorak Shep (5,140m), where we take a welcome break from the altitude before making our short but steep ascent of Kalar Pattar (5,550m). This view point is the perfect place to take in the full majesty of the surrounding mountains. We overnight at a lodge in Gorak Shep. We keep our itinerary for today and tomorrow flexible, depending on the weather and how people are handling the altitude.
| OVERNIGHT: Gorak Shep – trekking lodge
| MEALS: Breakfast

| MEALS: Breakfast

Day 11-13: Trek from Lobuche to Lukla via Devoche and Namche Bazaar
From Lobuche we head back down the trail via Namche Bazaar to Lukla. Having acclimatised well to the altitude the trekking becomes much easier as we make our way back down to Lukla, and there is plenty of time to take in the beauty of our surroundings. We overnight at lodges in Namche Bazaar and Lukla.
| OVERNIGHT: Trekking lodges
| MEALS: Breakfast
