Mount Everest is the world-famous term to describe this deity mountain of the world while in the local dialect, it can be known as Sagarmatha, Chomolongma, Mahalangur and Dev Dhunga. Mount Everest Expedition is the most popular expedition across the world for the simple reason that Mount Everest is the tallest mountain peak in the world. Getting atop Mount Everest, also known as the top of the world has been the most cherished destination and also a matter of challenge for the mountain climber across the world. Every year, thousands of foreign trekkers come here to Nepal for Mount Everest Expedition. Everest Expedition can be done both from the southern side which is in Nepal and the northern side which lies in Tibet. After 1950, China closed the Tibet border of the Everest to outsiders and since then Nepal has begun welcoming foreigners to the Everest Region. Following this, the southern route to the mountain via the Khumbu Valley has become the most followed and popular route among the climbers. Mount Everest was first scaled in 1953 by Tenzing Norgay Sherpa of Nepal and Sir Edmund Hillary of New Zealand from the South Col. Climbing Mt. Everest certainly is a lifetime experience. However, mountaineers during the Mount Everest Expedition have to come across many seen and unseen obstacles including high altitude, inclement weather conditions and even severe physical exhaustion. Mount Everest has attracted and fascinated so many mountaineers and trekkers across the world every year. As the itinerary is quite a long one and as it takes as long as two months for the entire expedition, Everest climbers are suggested to come prepared both physically and mentally. As much as it requires physical stamina and endurance to climb Everest, it equally requires enough patience and mental strength to actually get to the top of the world’s tallest peak and return safely from it. However, the expedition to the top of Everest will undoubtedly be the most thrilling experience you will ever gain in your life and something you will preserve in your memories for many more years to come.

Upon your arrival at the international airport in Kathmandu, our representatives and team members will welcome you. You will then be taken to the hotel and our representatives will provide brief overview about the travel itinerary. Overnight stay at the hotel.

  • Place: Kathmandu
  • Altitude: 1300

The next day, you will prepare for the trek and rest for the most part of the day at the hotel where you will be staying. During evening, you might walk around the streets of Thamel, tourist hub in Kathmandu, and observe the mixture of Nepali and western culture. Overnight stay at the hotel.

  • Place: Kathmandu
  • Altitude: 1300

On the third morning, you will board a flight to the Lukla Airport, also commonly known as Tenzing-Hillary Airport. It is a wonderful mountain flight and in around 30 minutes you will reach Lukla while enjoying the breathtaking views of the mountains during the flight. After landing at Lukla, you will take light breakfast and start your trek to Phakding. After around 3 hours of mild trek, you will reach Phakding village where you will be staying overnight at a guesthouse.

  • Place: Phakding
  • Altitude: 2610

After having breakfast in the morning at Phakding, you resume your trek and continue to hike along the Dudh Koshi River while ascending through Himalayan Pine and Doedar Cedar forests. Given the increasing altitude, you will be hiking slowly while enjoying the surrounding natural beauty of mountains. After almost six hours of trek, you finally arrive to the popular village of Namche Bazaar. The village of Namche has remained a historic trading point for the Nepalese and Tibetan traders who exchange salt, dried meat and other consumable and textile items. Overnight stay at a guesthouse in Namche Bazzar.

  • Place: Namche Bazar
  • Altitude: 3440

The fifth day of the trek will be spent in Namche Bazaar acclimatizing to the altitude and the conditions. A day for acclimatization is strictly advisable for prospective trekkers as they can also spend a day in Namche visiting the local bazaar of Namche, talking with Sherpas and learning about their culture. Or if you are not much tired and are ready for a few hours of trek, then you can also go to the Everest Hotel for great panoramic view of the Mount Everest, Mount Lhotse and others. Located at an altitude of 3900m, Everest Hotel is the hotel that is situated at the highest altitude in the world. Overnight stay at a guesthouse.

  • Place: Namche Bazar
  • Altitude: 3440

After a day of acclimatization in Namche, you resume your trek and climb further uphill. The trek now gets difficult with increasing altitude and the trekkers are advised to go about the trek in a slow and mild manner. Plenty of hotels are found along the way and the tourists will have the opportunity to take a short break if they want. After almost five hours of trek you reach Tengboche. It is a village in the Khumbu region of Everest and is located at 3,867 meters. Tengboche is mostly popular for the important Buddhist monastery, Tengboche Monastery, which happens to be the largest Gompa in the entire Khumbu region. Overnight stay at a guesthouse.

  • Place: Tengboche
  • Altitude: 3867

After having tea on the seventh day morning, you will resume your trek. Mount Everest, Mount Lhotse, Mount Nuptse and other Himalayas will play hide and seek as you climb along the trail. At some point the mountains will come quite close while at some other points they will appear farther away. Finally, after more than six hours of trek, you reach Dingboche, a small village in the Khumbu region that falls in Chukhung Valley. Dingboche is a popular stop for trekkers and climbers who are headed to the Everest or who are returning from Everest. As there are plenty of hotels and guesthouses, the entire village rests heavily on tourism. Overnight stay at a guesthouse.

  • Place: Dingboche
  • Altitude: 4530

As you have covered quite a lot of altitude, you will be spending the eighth day of the trek resting at Dingboche for acclimatization.

You can stroll around Dingboche, talking with the local Sherpa villagers and sipping special tea prepared by the Sherpas for trekkers. Overnight stay at a guesthouse

  • Place: Dingboche
  • Altitude: 4530

On the ninth day of the trek, you reach further close to get that elusive glimpse of the Mount Everest as you continue uphill through the trail. Lobuche is the last settlement area before the Everest Base Camp and some old-fashioned guesthouses are available there. Many traders who come via Tibet also stay at Lobuche for the night before they resume their travel the next day. Overnight stay at a guesthouse.

  • Place: Lobuche
  • Altitude: 4940

The next day you wake up in the morning, take tea and breakfast and resume your journey. You head towards the Everest Base Camp located at almost 5400 meters of altitude on the 10th day. 3-4 hours trek from Lobuche is enough to take us to the EBC. Unfortunately, the actual positioning of the Everest is such that the actual summit is not quite visible from the Base Camp, though you get amazing glimpses of the peak. You spend overnight at the EBC, in a camp.

  • Place: Everest Base Camp
  • Altitude: 5360

As your Everest Expedition now starts formally from the Base Camp, you spend another couple of days at the Base Camp preparing for the expedition and making sure you have all the equipment needed for the expedition. Acclimatization to the height is also another reason why you spend two more days at the EBC as it is very important to get used to the altitude. High altitude sickness is the problem most commonly faced by the trekkers and Everest climbers

  • Place: Everest Base Camp
  • Altitude: 5360

On the 13th day of the expedition, you start your journey from the Base Camp. As you will have Sherpa guides, carriers and other helpers, there is no need to worry and fear about the climbing. Our team members will make sure that you will have no such difficulty in climbing the Everest. It will nearly take 45 days to reach the summit of Everest from Base Camp and return.

For the next couple of days, you will be hiking down from the Base Camp to Namche Bazaaar via Tengboche and Dingboche. Tengboche, Dingboche and Namche will be the place to stay overnight during the return trip.

  • Place: Namche Bazar
