Day 2: Fly Lukla, Trek to Phakding (2656M)

Stop At: Lukla Airport Viewpoint, 56000, चौरीखर्क 56000, Nepal
There's no other way of putting it: the flight to Lukla is hair-raising indeed, but as you step down from the plane, you'll be taking your first monumental step on the path to Everest Base Camp. After reaching Lukla we’ll hike towards the village of Phakding where we’ll spend the night.

This morning right after an early breakfast, our trek truly begins. On the path from Phakding, we’ll cross rivers by suspension bridges. The villages along the way will set the pace and before you know it we'll have reached the entrance to Sagarmatha National Park. The trail continues rising sharply to reach Namche bazaar. Here we'll spend the night in a hotel with good facilities.
Duration: 10 hours

Meals included:
• Breakfast
Accommodation included: Overnight in Namche Bazaar;

Day 4: Acclimatization

Stop At: Main Street, Namche Bazaar 56002 Nepal
Acclimatizing is the key to a successful trek. And today we will acclimatize, while walking in the legendary Namche bazaar, with its restaurants, coffee shops, and pubs. We can visit Khunde Hospital, which was established by Sir Edmund Hillary.

Day 8: Trek to Lobuche (4940 m)

Stop At: Lobuche, Khumjung 56000, Nepal
The trail will become more and more challenging, as we climb to higher altitudes. We ascend to the steep terminal moraine of the Khumbu Glacier. The trail goes through boulder-strewn slopes as we make our way up Chupki Lhara, a ridge that provides spectacular views. The next part of our adventure brings over craggy mountain terrain to Lobuche, a small settlement with views of Mt. Lobuche, Mt. Pumari and the Nuptse.

Day 10: Kala Patthar (5545), Trek to Pheriche (4288M)
