Sample Itinerary


Day 1: Kathmandu

After the long flight, we’ll have a relaxing day of exploring Durbar Square and surrounding Hindu temples and Buddhist stupas.  

 

Day 2: Lukla

Please Note: the trekking portion of this trip can be anywhere from a day hike to the 24-day Three Passes Loop, which visits Island Peak, Everest Base Camp, and the Gokyo Lakes.

We’ll wake up early to fly to the small village of Lukla.  The scenic flight will provide us with amazing views of the Himalayas.  In Lukla, we’ll lace up our hiking boots and follow in the footsteps of Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay as we trek towards Everest.  We will have a relatively easy day of hiking as we continue to trek to Phakding.

 

Day 3: Namche Bazaar

Today we will hike to Namche Bazaar, the main staging area for every Everest expedition.  Namche is a colorful and unique village where shops sell everything from antique climbing gear to gourmet pastries.  

 

Day 4: Namche Bazaar

We will take an acclimatization day and explore the fascinating Namche Bazaar.  In the afternoon, we’ll take a short hike and check out the Sherpa Museum on the way back.  The Sherpa Museum houses exhibits on Sherpa traditions and famous Sherpa climbers, some of whom have summited Everest over twenty times!

 

Day 5: Tyangboche Monastery

Today we’ll hike up to 12,700 feet to spectacular and well-preserved Thyangboche monastery, the spiritual center of the Khumbu region.  John Hunt, the leader of the 1953 British expedition to Everest, wrote, “Thyangboche must be one of the most beautiful places in the world. [...] it provides a grandstand beyond comparison for the finest mountain scenery that I have ever seen, whether in the Himalaya or elsewhere.”  

 

Day 6: Tyangboche Monastery

We’ll wake up early to head into the Tengboche monastery to listen to the mystical chanting of the monks during the sunrise ceremony.  We will spend the day exploring the area and hike to viewpoints where we will have our best view of Everest and the surrounding peaks.  

 

Day 7 - 8: Lukla

After a few last sunrise photos of the monastery, we’ll head back down through Namche Bazaar to Lukla.

 

Day 9: Kathmandu

Hopefully, clear weather will allow for an early morning scenic flight.  We will take a day to shower, shop, rest, and have one final celebratory dinner once we arrive in Kathmandu.

 

Day 10: Kathmandu
