Trip Introduction

The world's tallest mountain, Mount Everest, has drawn numerous climbers since it first ascended more than a century ago. Since Mount Everest's summit is 8,848 meters (29,029 feet) above sea level, climbing it is regarded as one of the toughest mountaineering achievements. Numerous difficulties must be overcome along the ascent, such as ice walls, concealed crevasses, and abrupt weather changes.

Without a doubt, thousands of expedition leaders and climbers scale Mount Everest, the highest mountain in the world, as part of the Everest Expedition, the most difficult, demanding, and exciting adventure in the Himalayas (8848.86 m). Unquestionably, Mt. Everest (8848 m) is one of the hardest mountains in the world to climb; many seasoned mountaineers have witnessed life giving out on them right at this peak. You need to possess unwavering resolve, self-control, and bravery to participate in Everest expeditions. Years of mountaineering expertise, particularly above 6000 meters, is another requirement. In situations where there is a risk to one's life, it is never a good idea to be unprepared. A mountaineer who wants to climb Mount Everest needs to be well-prepared for the Everest adventure.

Day 02: Kathmandu Sightseeing 

The Kathmandu valley will be visited on a sightseeing tour led by a knowledgeable local guide. In Kathmandu, you will see a number of World Heritage Sites, such as Boudhanath, Swayambhunath, and several Durbar Squares of the Kathmandu Valley.

On your way back to your accommodation that night.
Meal: Breakfast

Day 03:  Fly to Lukla and Trek to Phakding |Altitude: 2,800m/9,187ft  | Trek: 3-4 Hrs

We'll take an exciting flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. With only 527 meters of the runway, the Tenzing Hillary Airport is one of the smallest airports in the world. The journey gets off to the ideal start with an exciting beginning. We will begin our trek to Pkhading from Lukla. Up until you get to the settlement of Phakding, the clearly designated track travels above the Dudh Kosi valley.
Meal: Breakfast and Dinner

Day 04: Trek from Phakding to Namchebaazar | Altitude: 3,438m/11,280ft  | Trek: 5-6 Hrs

We continue our stroll on the track that ascends the Benkar valley to the north after passing through a pine grove on our route. Before arriving at the Sagarmatha National Park's entrance, we cross the Dudh Koshi River and travel by the villages of Chumoa and Monjo. Then, after passing through the Jorsale village and a suspension bridge, we continue walking alongside the Dudh Koshi and Bhote Koshi rivers. We climb a rocky trail till we reach Namche Bazaar, the Khumbu region's capital and likely the largest town in the Everest region. It is a thriving trading town with real Tibetan antiquities. In Namche Bazaar, spend the night.
Meal: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

Day 05: Acclimatization Day

In order to acclimate our bodies to the high altitude, we do so in Namche Bazar. However, we continue to move and don't stand still. We hike to Thame, go to Khunde, or wander about Namche Bazaar. We can go to the Sir Edmund Hillary-founded Khunde hospital or the Sherpa Cultural Museum. The Syangboche Airstrip and the Everest View Hotel are both accessible via a little hike. You will be mesmerized by the breathtaking views of the entire Himalayan range, including Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, and Kusum Kangaru.
Meal: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

Day 06: Trek from Namche Bazaar to Tengboche | Altitude: 3850m/12631ft  | Trek: 5-6 Hrs

The distance up to Phunki is a short stroll. From here, we rise to Tengboche village, which is home to the largest and most well-known monastery in the Everest region, Tengboche monastery. Within the Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site is situated. Panoramas of the Himalayas, including Mt. Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, and Thamserku, may be seen from the monastery. If we arrive at the Tengboche Monastery by three o'clock, we can witness a Buddhist religious ritual since it opens at three o'clock. Tengboche, spend the night.
Meal: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

Day 07: Trek from Tengboche to Dingboche | Altitude: 4350m/14271ft  | Trek: 5-6 Hrs

A number of Chortens, Mani walls, and tiny towns are hidden by lush forests of birch, conf, and rhododendron trees as our path descends through them. While trekking, we can enjoy stunning views of Ama Dablam, Lhotse, and Mount Everest. To get to Pangboche, we first trek downwards to Deboche and then cross the Imja River. Choosing the upper Pangboche trek, we get to see the Pangboche Monastery and the Himalayan panorama. Before ascending to Dingboche, we continue our journey to the Imja Valley and Lobuche River. It is a charming community with lovely fields of buckwheat, potatoes, and barley, as well as grazing animals scattered across the fields.
Meal: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

Day 08: Acclimatization Day

This portion of the expedition is crucial. The area of Dingboche is ideal for acclimatization. We can adequately acclimate to the high altitude by staying here for a few days. To facilitate gradual acclimatization, the team leader will plan daily excursions to the nearby hills. Walk up some of the local hills to gradually expose yourself to higher altitudes. To ensure that you get the greatest acclimatization possible before you arrive at base camp, stick to the regimen that you previously discovered to be most effective. At a hospital managed by the Himalayan Rescue Association close to Pheriche, we can take part in a session on high altitude acclimatization while we're in Dingboche. The trip to Pheriche and return will be a beneficial acclimatization exercise. We will ascend a ridge behind the settlement during this acclimatization period so that we may see six of the world's tallest peaks, including Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho Oyu. Spend the night at Dingboche.
Meal: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

Day 09: Trek from Dingboche to Lobuche | Altitude: 5018m/16463ft  | Trek: 4-5 Hrs

Our journey to Everest Base Camp continues. We'll get to Dughla, which is nestled beneath the Khumbu glacier. The Dughla memorial honoring all Sherpas who lost their lives climbing Everest is visible. We continue our hike into a strenuous ascent up the glacier moraine after lunch at Dughla. The trek eventually takes us to a charming collection of tea houses in Lobuche after a number of hours.
Meal: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

Day 10: Trek from Lobuche to Gorakshep  | Altitude: 5170m/16962ft  | Trek: 4-5 Hrs

We set out on our winding, rocky trek from Lobuche to Gorak Shep today. We will arrive in Gorak Shep after a two-hour hike, where we will eat lunch. After lunch, we continue hiking at a leisurely pace up a somewhat steep trail till we reach Kala Patthar's summit. The views are spectacular from the top of Kala Patthar, where we can see the tallest mountain in the world, Everest, as well as other formidable Himalayan peaks. We spend some time at the summit admiring the scenery before making the relatively short descent to Gorak Shep, which is simpler than the ascent to Kala Patthar. In Gorak Shep, spend the night.
Meal: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

Day 11: Trek from Gorakshep to Everest Base Camp | Altitude: 5200m/17060ft | Trek: 2-3 Hrs

The ascent to Everest Base Camp is not particularly challenging. However, we generally meander over rocky terrains and rise and descend on glacier pathways. After leaving Gorak Shep, the trail continues across the Khumbu Glacier's moraines, where it turns hazy and winds through piles of debris. As we get closer to base camp, we take in the amazing melt patterns and marvel at the ice towers on the upper Khumbu glacier that are gently rounded. The Everest Base Camp is breathtakingly lovely. From the base camp, we have breathtaking views of the Nuptse, Khumbutse, and Pumori mountains. At the Everest base camp, where we spend the night, we take in the scenery and count the stars. In Everest Base Camp, spend the night.
Meal: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

Day 12- 60: Climbing period Summit Everest (8,848.86m/ 29,032ft)

Other than its height, Everest is best known for images of climbers precariously balancing across ladders between enormous pieces of ice in the "Khumbu Icefall." One route through the renowned "Khumbu Icefall" is set each year. Many businesses assert that they know the best route, but there is really only one. As a result, praise should be given to the dedicated Icefall Doctors, a group of Sherpa who undertakes this risky task and makes life simpler and safer for everyone who follows. Because of the constant movement of the ice and the potential for the sudden collapse of the enormous chunks, the best deterrent is quick movement and timing. Prior to the sun rising, we leave and progressively advance over several sorties, gaining essential acclimatization and speed, until the entire trek to camp 1 and our entry into the Western Cwm can be made in the cool of the day. It is best to think of Camp 1 as a staging area for Camp 2.To the Summit: After a final decision regarding our route has been made (based on the weather forecast), we return to Camp 3, spend the night there, and then climb Camp 4 using oxygen and a down suit. We reach the beginning of the notorious Yellow Band, a Limestone rock band at 7500m, after a brief journey in the direction of Lhotse. The Geneva Spur, a difficult scramble that eventually leads to the South Col and camp 4, can be reached by ascending over the Yellow band. A few days will give you more adrenaline and more breathtaking views than this one; you'll feel as though you're really high and in the "death zone" as you gaze down on the big peaks of Pumori and Lingtren, which are framed by Nuptse and Everest. Before our last summit push begins at roughly 10:00 p.m., it is now time to rest, unwind, eat, and rehydrate. Headlamps piercing the night, we ascend to the Balcony (8500m/27,900ft), reach the South Summit, and in the early dawn light, we will catch our first glimpses of the Hillary Step. The penultimate challenge to overcome before reaching the last summit slopes and the roof of the globe is The Hillary Step, a nearly vertical ascent of 12 meters that is scaled by fixed lines. In order to provide a significant safety margin for the descent to the South Col, we want to reach the summit early in the morning. Before arriving at base camp, we spend one more night at camp 2.
Meal: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

Day 61-65: Getting Back to Kathmandu

We will be using the same route back to return to Lukla airport and fly back to Kathmandu
Meal: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner
