Everest Base Camp Trek 13 nights 14 days
Day 01: Arrival at Kathmandu International Airport
Upon arrival at the Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) in Kathmandu, our tour/trekking leader will pick us up from the airport and make arrangement for the transfer to hotel. We can have a rest in the hotel and in the evening we will be joining for the welcome dinner where we will be tasting the authentic Nepalese food. Overnight at Kathmandu.
Day 02 Flight to Lukla and start EBC trekking to Phakding (2652m/8699ft) Walking Duration 3 hours
Our guide will pick you up from the hotel after breakfast and take you on an adventurous flight to Lukla. All of the TIA to Lukla flights have morning departure times. It’s because it gets harder to fly in the afternoon when the wind starts up. Even the journey to Lukla is a unique adventure that will frost your bones. As soon as you depart Kathmandu, the surrounding mountains and lush hills will welcome you. Watching the scenery is worthwhile. One of the world’s most severe high-altitude airports is the Tenzing Hillary Airport. Flying between the tall, green hills and landing on a small path at the foot of the mountains will therefore undoubtedly cause you to miss your landing.
You will begin your trek to the Everest Base Camp after an exhilarating flight. You will meet porters in the airport prior to the event, and they will carry the majority of your loads. After getting ready, the tour guide will lead you down the crowded street to the beginning of the descent to Phakding. You may enjoy the wonderful sounds of nature as you stroll alongside the Dudh Koshi River and through an alpine forest. To go to Phakding, you will then cross the suspension bridge. Your adventure will become more exciting as you walk above the swinging bridge. After that, take your baggage to a nearby teahouse to relax. Visit the local villages afterwards or unwind at the teahouse. Tomorrow will be a hard day of hiking. So, get enough sleep. Overnight at Phakding.
Day 03 Trek from Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3440m/11283Ft) Duration 6 hours
You will begin your trek to reach Namche Bazaar after breakfast. Although it’s a challenging ascent, the stunning scenery, fresh air, and desire to reach the base camp will make you keep on going. On the journey, we’ll make several stops to take in some breathtaking scenery. You will cross Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, on your way to Monjo. The national park is full of rare species of animals and plants. In case you’re fortunate, you might catch a glimpse.
You pass some lovely Sherpa villages, Monjo, and Jorsale on the route to Namche. Namche, a Sherpa settlement where you may finish your last-minute shopping, is known as the entrance to Everest. The area is filled with a variety of stores, cafes, cybercafés, inns, lodges, and guest rooms. Banks, ATMs, money exchanges, and a bustling local market welcome visitors to Nepal’s Everest region.
