Kathmandu and Solukhumbu Tour Itinerary

Day 1
Today is the day of your arrival in Kathmandu, Nepal. As soon as you come out of the Kathmandu airport, you will find our representative waiting for you in the waiting area right outside the arrival lounge. You will be warmly greeted and welcomed by the representative and led to the vehicle. Our vehicle will take you to the trip hotel, most of the time in Thamel, that is 20-30 minutes drive, depending upon traffic, from the airport.

After you check into the hotel, you can take relaxing time on your own as there are no activities scheduled for today, except our trip briefing meeting. We will let you know about the briefing timing upon your arrival.
Day 2
Enjoy your breakfast at the hotel. We come to take your for a wonderful cultural heritage tour of Kathmandu valley. As part of the tour, we are going to visit four of the UNESCO Heritage monuments in Kathmandu valley. The places we visit today are incredible mixture of culture, history, spirituality, art and stories. Overnight in Hote.

Swoyambhunath
Believed to have been created on its own, this Budhhist stupa is the oldest of all the monuments in Kathmandu valley. Standing atop a small hillock, Swoyambunath, known as monkey temple amongst tourists, provides a fascinating view of the valley, surrounding hills and snow-capped mountain at the distance on a clear day.

Patan Durbar Square
One of the three medieval palace squares, Patan Durbar Square holds its medieval art and architectural grandeur. Amazing skill of the artisans is evident in each and every building that stands in the square. The square comprises of medieval palace, temples and museum.

Pashupatinath
This site is the most sacred Hindu temple area in the country. But, as the temple is strictly a Hindu only area, non-Hindu tourists go there to watch the unique Hindu cremation rituals on the bank of River Bagmati. The death rites of Hindu family there are so engrossing and heart-touching which make you feel the moment. It's not any kind of intrusion in being there and watching somebody being cremated in an open ground. It's a great cultural experience.

Boudhanath
This giant Buddhist stupa is considered as the biggest one in the world. This small square with giant shrine has a powerful presence of the spiritual vibrations. It's an important pilgrimage site for the people following Tibetan Buddhism.
Day 3
After a day of wonderful immersion into Kathmandu vibes, we are ready to fly and trek into the higher elevation. We drive to airport early morning to board our flight to Lukla to enter the Everest region. About half hour of spectacular flight takes us to the small but beautiful town of Lukla where magical mountain peaks extend their warm welcome to us.

Once we prepare for the day walk, we proceed walking towards Phakding as the destination for the day. The first day of walk in the Everest region goes along the Dudh Koshi River passing through several mani walls, chhortens and beautiful landscapes. Phakding village lies beautifully on the bank of Dudh Koshi River where we spend the night.
Day 4
It's a beautiful day of walking into the Sagarmatha National Park. We relish the mouthwatering breakfast as a gentle breeze comforts the morning. We set off on the trek for the day and reach Monjo to enter the national park zone. After checking into the park, we head up towards Namche Bazar. Crossing suspension bridges over the river in several places; passing through forested parts and many wonderful views, we finally reach Namche Bazar.

Namche Bazar is a beautiful settlement on a mountain slope with the view of Himalayan peaks right in front. It is also an important trade center in Everest region. Overnight in Lodge.
Day 5
An additional day of exploring around Namche is required to acclimatize with the thinning air as we go higher. We hike to the Everest view point to get the very first glimpse of Mt. Everest along with other impressive peaks in the region. We can hike up to Khumjung if you like to. The hiking to a higher elevation will help us acclimatize properly so that we can walk further higher. We return back to Namche Bazar in the afternoon and wander around the bazar. A relaxing afternoon will reenergize and prepare us for the next day. Overnight in Lodge.
Day 6
Our walk today is headed to Thame, a beautiful and glorious Sherpa village with many mountaineers born there. With fewer trekkers in the route, the walk today feels quite peaceful. With the proper acclimatization hiking at Namche yesterday, we are ready to walk further higher. But we keep our pace slow and steady to adjust ourselves with the thinning level of oxygen in the air. A beautiful trekking day with spectacular views of the mountains, we finally reach Thame to stay overnight. Overnight at a lodge.
Day 7
The peaceful walk in the wilderness of the mountains continues further towards Lungden today. The walk of the day takes us to the elevation of 4,380 meters above sea level for overnight stay. It's a quiet walk with fewer people along the trail. The landscape changes as we walk higher. We stop at Marlung for lunch before moving towards Lungden.

Lungden is a small settlement with few guest houses to accommodate trekkers. We stay here and take a much needed rest to go for a challenging walk over Renjo La pass tomorrow. Overnight at a lodge.
Day 8
An adventurous day is ahead of us today. A challenging uphill walk early in the morning tests us before reaching Renjo La. We need to face the steep uphill walk just near the Renjo La pass. Although the trail to Renjo La feels challenging, it rewards us with the fabulous view of mountain panorama and Gokyo lakes. After spending some beautiful moments at the pass, we start descending down towards Gokyo. We reach Dudh Pokhari, the third of five lakes in Gokyo and stay overnight there. Overnight at a lodge.

But the breathtaking view is rewarded only after a strenuous uphill walking effort from Thagnak. The trail is quite tricky one and sometimes, if there is too much ice on it, we need to use our climbing skills although not highly technical. But the view from the pass makes us forget all the challenges we go through to reach there though for a moment. We carefully descend to Dzongla after enjoying the view from the pass. Overnight at a lodge.

We reach Lobuche little early allowing ourselves time to explore around. Overnight at a lodge.
Day 13
Today is the day when we make it to the destination of this epic journey. We trek to the Everest base camp via Gorakshep after stopping for the lunch there. Gorakshep serves as our overnight site for the day. After checking in the lodge at Gorakshep, we set off on the journey to the epic Everest base camp. The trail to the base of the highest mountain in the world is full of glacial moraine and boulders. We reach the base camp and spend some wonderful time there taking pictures and absorbing the mountain vibes. We, later, walk back to Gorakshep to stay overnight.
Day 14

We watch the sun rise beautifully over the magnificent mountains; take picture of the mountains and the sunrise and, later on, return back to lodge at Gorakshep for breakfast. Hungrily devouring the breakfast, we fill up ourselves with much needed energy to go back. We are trekking to Lobuche today. Overnight at a lodge.
Day 15
We are going to cross third pass and the highest of all three passes. The walk to the pass is a strenuous uphill challenging walk towards Kongma La that stands at the elevation of 5,535 meters above sea level. The trail that leads us to the pass is pretty tricky but the views take our breath away. Two 8,000 meters mountain, Lhotse and Makalu, stand impressively tall along with other mountain peaks in the region. After crossing the pass, we descend gently down to Chhukung to stay overnight.
