You will be welcomed with a fresh flower garland, a traditional Nepali greeting, and then escorted to the hotel for bed and breakfast service. The drive from the airport to the hotel takes approximately 15 to 20 minutes, if there is no traffic jam on our way. After checking into the hotel, we will have a short refreshment meeting at the hotel. In the evening, the company will host a welcome dinner at a traditional Nepali restaurant, complete with a cultural dance performance, to celebrate the start of your trip. During the dinner, your guide will provide a brief overview of the schedule for the following day.
This morning, we will have a meeting where our group leader will brief us about the upcoming expedition. After the meeting, our group leader and a company representative will visit the Nepal Tourism Board for an expedition briefing and to obtain expedition permits. Meanwhile, our guide and the rest of the climbers will need to confirm their necessary climbing gear and equipment for the trekking and expedition. If it is found that someone does not have the proper equipment and gear, the guide will help them collect or hire it from the trekking shops in Thamel.
We will depart from Kathmandu in the early morning, embarking on a scenic journey to Dhap village, our destination for today. The route takes us alongside the picturesque Sunkoshi River, which later merges with the Tama Koshi River, forming the majestic Sun Koshi River. As we drive, we'll be treated to stunning views of terraced fields and rolling hills. Along the way, we'll pass through numerous villages, immersing ourselves in the authentic rural landscapes of Nepal. After approximately 6 to 7 hours of driving, we will arrive at Dhap village. If the weather is clear, we may even catch a glimpse of the spectacular mountain chain views from Dhap village.
Today, we will continue our trek along a dusty road that leads to Sigane. Once again, we will follow the trail along bumpy roads until we reach Jhapre. This village is renowned for its exceptional vantage points, which offer clear views of the mountains in the northern region of the country. From here, we can enjoy breathtaking views of Everest (8,848m) and Numbur Himal. Additionally, we will have the opportunity to visit gompas and stupas in the village.
We will wake up early in the morning to witness the first golden rays of the sun illuminating the snow-capped mountains. As we savor this breathtaking sight, we will proceed with our trek along a dusty road for a while before beginning our uphill climb towards Bhulbule. The trail becomes steeper from here, leading us through rhododendron forests and small settlements like Lhamuje. Beyond Lhamuje, the trail opens up to a pasture where we can observe grazing yaks. We will also cross a long Mani wall and ascend along a winding road until we reach Pikey Base Camp. Along the way, we will have the opportunity to visit the Yak Cheese Factory and enjoy the magnificent views of the majestic mountains that encircle the valley. Overnight accommodation will be provided at a lodge in Pikey Base Camp.
The day begins with an early morning trek along a steep, rocky ridgeline to the picturesque hill of Pikey Peak (4,065m).

Along the way, we will pass many Mani walls and Chortens until we reach Junbesi. In Junbesi, we will visit an old monastery situated in the village and admire the beautiful view of Numbur Himal to the north. Overnight accommodation will be provided at a lodge in Junbesi.
After breakfast, you will continue your trek by following the trail through the forest. As you emerge from the forest, you will traverse through a picturesque meadow. Eventually, you will reach a village called Taktor, where you can stop for lunch. Afterward, you will resume your trek towards Junbesi, following a wide dirt road. On your way to Junbesi, you will have the opportunity to visit a Buddhist Monastery. Junbesi itself is a stunning village adorned with a Buddhist Stupa and cozy tea houses. It is inhabited by Sherpa, Magar, and Tamang people. You will spend the night at a Mountain Lodge in Junbesi.
After breakfast, you can follow the trail along the river and through fields towards the Thupten Chholing monastery. The journey is incredibly scenic, passing through numerous villages and farms along the way. The monastery is a sanctuary for approximately 800 monks and provides food and education to a significant number of individuals. The region is inhabited by Tibetan monks who sought refuge here many years ago. You can spend the night at a tented camp in the Thupten Chholing monastery.
After having breakfast at the usual time, you will begin your trek from Junbesi to Nunthala. As you walk a little further from Junbesi, on a clear day, you will be treated to the first view of Mt. Everest. The trail gradually ascends and descends from Junbesi to Ringmo. From Ringmo, the trail becomes uphill as you make your way to Taksindo Pass at an altitude of 2,960 m. After crossing Taksindo, the trail descends to Nunthala where you will spend the night at a lodge.
After finishing your breakfast at the usual time, you will commence your trek from Nunthala to Kharikhola. The trail descends from Nunthala to reach the Dudh Koshi River. Upon crossing the suspension bridge over the Dudh Koshi River, the trail ascends uphill towards Kharikhola. Kharikhola is a charming Sherpa village known for its Sherpa community. Many Sherpa men from this village are actively involved in Everest expeditions and mountaineering activities, while the women manage lodges in the area. You will spend the night at a lodge in Kharikhola.
After having breakfast at the usual time, we will embark on a trek from Kharikhola to Paiya, passing through Gompa Danda. The trail primarily consists of uphill climbs, leading us to Tham Danda and onward to Paiya. Along the way, you will be treated to picturesque views of lush green hills and stunning backdrops.
Today, our destination is Phakding village. At the beginning of the trail, it follows a straight path before descending towards Surke village. Afterward, there is a steep ascent to the meeting point of the trekking routes to Lukla and lower Solu trek at Chhoplung village. From there, the trail becomes much easier as we continue towards Phakding village. As we progress, we will encounter more trekkers and climbers on their way to Everest Base Camp.
We will continue our mountain journey, following the Dudh Koshi River. The trail will lead us to Sagarmatha National Park through the Dudh Koshi River valley, passing many beautiful villages, restaurants, and guesthouses, as well as cultivated farm lands, waterfalls, and well-constructed suspension bridges over the Dudh Koshi River. As we trek through the village of Banker, we will have a spectacular view of Kusum Kanguru (6,369 m) and Thamserku (6,623 meters). After 2 to 3 hours of slightly uphill trekking, we will reach Sagarmatha National Park, where we will need to present our permits and enter it. Today, we should have an early hot lunch before leaving the last settlement of
Jorsalle. After leaving Jorsalle, there are no places to eat hot meals until we reach Namche Bazar. From Jorsalle, our trail continues straight ahead to the confluence of the Dudh Koshi and Bhote Koshi rivers, following the Dudh Koshi River, before starting the strenuous uphill trail, we will cross the famous Hillary Bridge, the highest bridge in the EBC trail over the Dudh Koshi River. We will trek for about 5 to 7 hours, covering a distance of 12.5 kilometers, with stunning landscapes throughout the journey from Phakding.
Today is a rest day for us, it's very important to take a rest day after rapidly ascending a mountain. Even though we don't take a rest, we will hike to the Everest View Point (3,867m or 12,687ft) for the best panoramic view of Mount Everest and other beautiful mountain views. If we have time, we will visit Khumjung village, the legendary Yeti Scalp Monastery, and the Mountain Museum in Namche Bazaar.
Today, we will embark on a hike to the Hillary Viewpoint, situated at an elevation of 3,790 meters (12,434 feet). This viewpoint offers a mesmerizing bird's eye view of the surrounding valley, providing a perfect vantage point to appreciate the beauty of Khumjung village nestled against the backdrop of Mount Thamserku. From here, we can also behold the majestic peaks of Amadablam, Everest, Lhotse, and Tabuche, as well as enjoy panoramic views of the rolling hills. On the opposite side, we will be treated to the sight of Konde Peak, Tengragite, Papchhermo, and the stunning Thame Valley.
After soaking in the breathtaking vistas, we will proceed to explore Khumjung village and visit the ancient Yeti Sculpture Monastery.
Today, we will embark on a trek from Khumjung to Thame Valley, following the ancient trading trail that connected Nepal and Tibet. This scenic journey will take us through picturesque Buddhist villages, offering stunning views along the way. During our trek, we will come across the renowned Thomo Monastery, situated in the village of Thamo. This section of the trail is relatively easier compared to previous days. After a relaxing trek lasting approximately 4 to 5 hours, we will arrive at Thame Village.
Today, we will embark on a long hike to Sunder Peak to enjoy the breathtaking surrounding views and aid in acclimatization. Sunder Peak is located above Thame village, and it typically takes 4 to 5 hours to reach the summit. The climb offers a tremendously enjoyable vista. There are no tea shops along the way, so trekkers must ensure they carry an ample water supply and a packed lunch.
After a successful acclimatization, today we will trek to Lungden (4,349 m/14,268 ft). The journey takes approximately 7-8 hours for trekkers with a normal pace. The trail is serene and passes through the amphitheater valley, which was once an ancient Nepal and Tibet trading route. Along the way, we will encounter yaks and tea houses where we can enjoy a hot lunch before reaching Lungden. After our lunch break, the trail becomes more challenging with steep climbs and higher altitudes. Eventually, we will arrive at Lungden, a small mountain village. This is the last settlement before reaching the Renjo La Pass.
Today, we will wake up early to witness the breathtaking panoramic view of Mount Everest before embarking on our journey across Renjo La Pass. This trail is known for its difficulty, characterized by steep climbs, high altitudes, and moraines. It is particularly challenging during snowy seasons when the trail is covered in snow, making it hard to navigate. However, reaching the pass rewards trekkers with one of the most stunning views of Gokyo Lake against the backdrop of the mighty Mount Everest. After crossing the pass, we will descend to Gokyo Lake, where a line of beautiful tea houses awaits us. It is important to note that there are no tea houses before reaching Gokyo Lake, so trekkers must carry sufficient drinking water, hot tea, and packed lunch for the pass.
This morning we hike up to Gokyo Ri 5,357 m for the exhilarating views. The peak offer a super beautiful sunrise and sunset views as well as panoramic view of circular mountains views. Like Ch Oyou, Everest, Lhotse, Everest and Makalu. We can see 4 over 8000 meters mountains secularly and very unique Gokyo Lakes views and wide Ngozumba glacier views. After hike of Gokyo Ri we trek towards Tangnag 4,267m/ 13, 999 ft).
Today, we will wake up before sunrise and have breakfast and tea before starting our trek with headlamps. The trail ascends through rugged terrain, gradually gaining altitude. This day can be quite challenging due to the rocky and snowy conditions, especially during the snowy seasons. Crossing the pass becomes even more difficult if there is fresh snowfall, as it makes it harder to find the trail and increases the risk of avalanches and crevasses. There are no tea houses along the way until we reach Zhongla, so it is essential for trekkers to carry an ample supply of drinking water, hot tea, and packed lunch. Once we pass the Cho-La pass, the trail becomes easier with beautiful views, and eventually, it merges with the Everest Base Camp trekking route.
Today, we will trek to Gorak Shep, a permanent man-made settlement. Our trail will take us through the moraine along the ridge of the Khumbu Glacier. The trek is challenging due to the rocky terrain, glacier crossings, and high altitude, but the breathtaking mountain views surround us throughout. After a slow-paced trek of approximately 3 to 4 hours, we will reach Gorak Shep. Once we have enjoyed a hot lunch, we will embark on an evening hike to Kala Patthar to witness the stunning sunset view from the top, with Mount Everest prominently featured.
Today, we are very excited to visit the famous Everest Base Camp. After our usual morning breakfast, we will begin our trek towards the world's highest peak base camp. The trail runs straight along the edge of the Khumbu glacier, offering majestic mountain views and splendid scenes of the Khumbu glacier. After 2 to 3 hours of walking at a slow pace from our tea house, we will reach the base camp. Finally, we will celebrate this once-in-a-lifetime trekking experience by taking some photos and then make our way back to Gorak Shep via the same route. We will take a break at Gorak Shep for a hot lunch before continuing our trek downhill to Lobuche, where we will enjoy a more comfortable stay.
After the very successful Everest Base Camp trek, we will continue our journey towards Chhukung by crossing Khongmala Pass at an altitude of 5,555 meters. At the beginning of the trek, we will traverse the famous Khumbu glacier and then proceed to ascend steeply towards Khongmala Pass. The trail is relatively more challenging compared to other passes like Renjola and Chola, but the pass rewards us with breathtaking views and an incredible sense of accomplishment. From the top, you can witness the massive Mount Lhotse and Mount Makalu in the distance. Please note that the trail becomes even more difficult and risky during the snowfall season. If there is heavy snowfall, it is not advisable to attempt the pass, as it can make it difficult to find the track and pose a high risk of falling into moraine or lakes. After crossing the pass, we will descend to Chhukung, passing through summer grazing lands for yaks and cows. It is crucial to carry sufficient drinking water, hot tea, and packed lunch, as there are no tea houses along the way until we reach Chhukung village. Today's trek will be long, taking approximately 8 to 9 hours for trekkers at a normal pace, assuming good weather conditions and clear trail markings.
Today, after undergoing proper physical fitness training and acclimatization during the long trek, we will make our way to Imja-Tse (Island) Base Camp, situated at an altitude of 4,970m (16,305 ft). Our goal is to attempt to climb the peak while enjoying the breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains. To reach the base camp, we will follow a narrow and rugged off-beaten track that runs alongside the Imja Tse stream valley. This track gradually ascends to the Island Peak Base Camp. It will take us approximately 3 hours of slow trekking to reach our destination. Once we arrive, we will take some rest and then review and refresh our climbing tips at the base camp.
Today is our summit day for Island Peak, which stands at an elevation of 6,189 meters (20,305 ft). We are extremely excited to reach the summit. We will wake up at 1 AM for breakfast and final preparations before departing from the Island Peak Base Camp. After a short walk from the base camp, our trek begins with a climb up a rugged path. After approximately two hours of climbing, we will encounter rock slabs before reaching the crampon point.
Our route will then take us through permanent snowfields and crevasses, posing several challenging obstacles to navigate. We will continue onwards, ascending a slope with an incline of 75 to 85 degrees, as well as a sharp ridge. Throughout the climb, we will rely on a fixed-line rope for support. Upon reaching the summit, we will be rewarded with breathtaking 360-degree mountain views, including Lhotse, Lhotse Middle, Lhotse-Sar, Makalu, Barunche, Amphu Peak, Ama Dablam, and picturesque vistas of Dingboche, Tengboche, and Khumjung down the valley.
After a few minutes of celebrating our once-in-a-lifetime climbing experience, exchanging cheers, and capturing memorable photos on the summit, we will descend back to Chhukung via the Base Camp. This will conclude our remarkable climbing journey with beautiful memories.
After trekking at higher altitudes for proper acclimatization, achieving physical fitness, and successfully summiting a peak, today we will head towards the Ama Dablam base camp. However, before reaching the base camp, we need to take a break to relax and regain energy for the Mount Ama Dablam summit. After trekking downhill for 2 to 3 hours, we will reach Pangboche, a beautiful village renowned for its Sherpa mountaineers.
After acclimatizing well and achieving a good level of physical fitness, we prepare for the final push to the summit. Before starting the ascent, we take a break to replenish our energy and stop at a lower location for this purpose. During the rest day, we engage in small sightseeing around the Pangboche monastery, enjoy good food, and relax.
Finally, we are heading to the base camp of the dream peak, Ama Dablam. The Ama Dablam Base Camp is situated at an altitude of 4,600 m/15,091 ft. It typically takes 2 to 3 hours for trekkers or climbers at a normal pace to reach the base camp from Pangboche village. Leaving the Imja Khola river, the trail ascends steeply towards the base camp.
After our final presentation for the climbing expedition today, we will proceed to ascend towards Camp One of Mount Ama Dablam, where we will be rewarded with majestic views. Camp One is situated at an altitude of 5,700 meters above sea level and typically takes around 4 hours to reach from the base camp for climbers maintaining a normal pace.
Today, we will be ascending to Camp II, traversing through the rocky sections of the track while enjoying splendid views. Camp II is located at an altitude of 6,100 meters (20,000 feet) above sea level. The climb is expected to take approximately 2 to 3 hours.
Today, we climbed most of the technically difficult part of the peak. We climbed very carefully with the support of fixed ropes, using jumar devices and fully secured with safety ropes. Camp Three is situated at an altitude of 6,277 meters (20,594 feet) on a fully permanent snowfield. The ascent typically takes around 3 to 4 hours for regular climbers, but the duration may vary depending on the climber's level of acclimation, physical fitness, and skill. The climbing section is extremely challenging, but it rewards us with the world's best panoramic views.
Today is our summit day, so we woke up before sunrise and prepared for the final ascent to the dream peak. The climbing route from Camp 3 to the summit is entirely covered in snow. It is not as steep as the route between Camp Two and Tree, but it is still a challenging climb due to the decreasing oxygen levels. However, reaching the summit offers climbers breathtaking views. From the top, you can witness a complete 360-degree panorama of mountains. Beyond, you can see Cho Oyu, Makalu, Kanchenjunga, and in the close distance, the mighty Mount Everest, along with many other mountains below 8,000 meters. We will enjoy this climb with the full support of fixed line ropes. After slowly ascending for 3 to 4 hours, we reach the summit. We celebrate our achievement by taking group photographs and videos, savoring the beautiful summit. Then, we descend carefully with the assistance of ropes.
After successfully summiting Mount Ama Dablam today, we will climb back to base camp and then fly back to Lukla, which is located at an elevation of 2,860 meters (9,383 ft). From Lukla, we will proceed to Kathmandu and celebrate our wonderful experience at the hotel. In the evening, the company will organize a celebratory dinner at an authentic Nepali cultural restaurant in Kathmandu, complete with a drinks party.
Days 35 and 36 are reserved as contingency days. In case we are unable to reach the summit on our planned day due to adverse weather conditions or the health of the climbers, we have allocated two extra days to complete the mission.
On Day 37, it's time for the departure as we conclude this unforgettable trekking and climbing trip. We will drop you off at Kathmandu's Tribhuvan International Airport at the designated passenger check-in time and bid you farewell.
