This will be the first day in the mountains. Entering into the Everest region and getting into the mountain atmosphere is getting us excited. We drive to the airport for early morning flight to Lukla airstrip. This spectacular, small plane flight takes us to the beautiful Everest region that we will be enjoying for the next few days.

After getting into Lukla and meeting our whole trekking crew, our trekking adventure for the day begins.

Famous village Namche, also known as Namche Bazar, is our overnight place for today. We embark on the trek towards the destination after breakfast. The walk today involves crossing and re-crossing of River Dudh Koshi several times along the trail. Our walk goes past Jorsalle and Monjo where we can stop for lunch break. We enter Sagarmatha National Park from Monjo onwards and the walk becomes more difficult as the steep ascent to Namche begins here.

The trail, despite its difficulty, brings several wonderful places and views. Crossing of suspension bridges over the river is truly exciting and walking through forested part is a peaceful walking adventure. We eventually emerge at Namche Bazar and the whole village is seen perched on the beautiful mountain slope. This Sherpa capital is also the last place on the trek where you can use your ATM; buy trekking gear you want and enjoy a little bit of happening.

We will go for a hiking exploration of the surroundings that will help us adjust with the elevation and also enjoy magnificent views of the mountains. We hike up to the Everest view point from where we can see the first ever glace of Mt. Everest if the weather is clear.

On our trek to Tengboche today, we are going to experience some incredible nature walk before emerging to Tengboche. The trail goes fairly up the hill before it descends to a river and steeply head up towards Tengboche. The steep walking up to Tengboche gets rewarded with breathtaking view of mountain peaks as we emerge to the place.

Tengboche has an important Buddhist monastery that holds high faith and respect for the Buddhist people living in the region. This monastery is the cultural and spiritual center of the Sherpa people.

Our Everest base camp trekking adventure enters the region above 4,500 meters from sea level on the trek today. While we trek to Lobuche as our overnight destination, we traverse boulder strewn and glacial moraine filled trail. Landscape changes drastically and walking speed gets slower as the effect of high elevation.

The trail takes you to Lobuche via Thukla where we can see chhortens – the small memorial monuments. The trail feels tough although it looks pretty easy. High elevation and moraine and boulders make the trail challenging to traverse. On a slow and steady pace, we eventually reach Lobuche to settle in a guest house.

It is the most important and highlight day of the trip as we are going to trek all the way to Everest base camp.

We check into guesthouse and wait for the lunch.

We will soon find ourselves standing at the foot of Mt. Everest at the elevation of 5,364 meters above sea level. We will be mesmerized by the view and the feeling of being at the Everest base camp. We make the most out of our moment in the base camp to carry back good memories.

After the awesome time at the base camp, we return back to Gorakshep to stay overnight.

We will have to wake up early morning today to hike up to Kalapatthar. This early morning hike takes us to the elevation of 5,445 meters above sea level that is the highest on the trip. The early morning wake up and struggle up the mountain is worth doing as the view point brings breathtaking close up and panoramic view of the mountains including Mt. Everest. To add to our mountain excitement, a spectacular sunrise makes our moment there even more incredible.

Later, we hike down to Gorakshep and enjoy our breakfast. Now, it’s the time to traverse the trail back down. We check out the guest house and embark on the trek for the day back down to Pheriche.
