Short Description

Everest’s daunting summit soars so high that trekking to its base camp (17,590') is still an adventure of the highest sort. Join National Geographic on a 13-day Himalayan trek to Everest’s Southern Face Base Camp through some of the world’s most spectacular mountain scenery. Spend two days discovering the historic treasures of Kathmandu. Stay in villages set against soaring, jagged pinnacles; get to know the unique culture of the Sherpas; and walk trails lined with mani stones, engraved with Tibetan Buddhist prayers. Discover remote mountain monasteries and learn about the Sherpas’ spiritual perspective on the mountains they call home.

Detailed Itinerary

From Tribhuban International Airport you will be transferred to your hotel room. In the afternoon you will invited to our office for briefing about the each day program. Today you will receive your Sagarmatha National Park Permits and TIMS.
Overnight Stay at hotel in Kathmandu

Day 2: Kathmandu to Lukla

Walking Distance: 8 km (3-4 hours)

Pick up at Hotel and transfer to Kathmandu domestic airport. After a short morning flight to Lukla, you’ll be introduced to your guide and porter. Kick off your trek with an easy walk through Chaurikharka village and descent towards Dudhkoshi Ghat (2,530m/8,300ft). The trail follows the bank of the Dudhkoshi River until Phadking (2,652m/8,700ft), where we will be staying for the night to acclimatize. Enjoy your free time in Phadking, a popular stopping point.

Day 3: Phadking to Namche Bazaar

Walking Distance: 10-12 km (5-6 hours)

You’ll have breakfast in Phadking before gearing up for the trek to Namche Bazaar, the biggest Sherpa village in Nepal. Your trail takes you first over the Dudhkoshi River via a long suspension bridge, and then through a beautiful pine forest to Monju, about two hours away. Soon thereafter, we will approach the entrance to Sagarmatha National Park for a brief permit check and then descend to Dudh Koshi River (spotting Mani stones along the way!) en route to Jorasalle. Lunch will be served here, and then it’s uphill to Namche. Your path along the riverbank is flanked by two crossings, one of which is the Hillary Suspension Bridge. It’s a tough climb up the hill to our resting place, but you'll be rewarded in Namche Bazaar with your first glimpse of Everest in its majesty.

Day 4: Namche Bazaar to Tengboche

Walking Distance: 10 km (6 hours)

Breakfast in Namche Bazaar fuels us for another day of trekking towards Everest Base Camp today! Break taking views of the Himalayas - Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku and Kwangde - are some of the highlights not are missed. A short drop takes us to the riverside, and then it's across the river upwards through the forest pass. Brace your legs for a continual uphill trek at this point, alternating between a gradual grade and some seriously steep ground! Your destination, Tengboche, is known as one of the most beautiful places in the Everest region. Its views, which include Ama Dablam, are legendary. We'll stop in on the Tengboche monastery, which is one of the largest in Khumbu. Nourish your spirit with a guided tour of the monastery grounds, followed by chanting and prayer with the resident Buddhist monks.

Day 5: Tengboche to Dingboche

Walking Distance: 11 km (6 hours)

Your trek today kicks off with a walk through the rhododendron forest to Debouche followed by a bridge over the raging Imja Khola River. You’ll pass the valley wall and then traverse the plains to Pangboche village, the biggest settlement of Sherpa’s in the region. Enjoy a great opportunity to observe a typical Sherpa village and have lunch with the locals! The intrepid can brave a brief hike to the Pangboche monastery, one of the oldest in the area. Your afternoon trek will be a difficult one, as the landscape gives way to dry; deserted mountains and you hike towards Dingboche.

Day 6: Dingboche to Lobuche

Walking Distance: 11-12 km (6-7 hours)

From here on forth, the trek will move more gradually be more challenging, due to the higher altitude. You past Dungla, but not before a tough, steep walk to the top of a high hill. Here are the memorial stupas dedicated to the climbers and trekkers who lost their lives to Everest over the years. The next part of our adventure brings over craggy mountain terrain to Lobuche, a small settlement with amazing views of Mt. Lobuche, Mt. Pumori and the Nuptse. Prepare to snuggle up for a cold night, as we are now almost three miles above sea level and the evenings can be downright chilly!

Day 7: Lobuche to Gorkasep and Everest Base Camp

Distance of walking: 15 km (6-8 hours)

This is it! Your big day kicks off with an initial, relatively easy trek from Lobuche to Gorekshep. The subsequent, straight trail to Everest Base Camp is harder, involving rocky dunes and moraine, formed accumulation of unconsolidated glacial debris. On the way to our destination, you will approach the famed Khumbu Glacier and icefall, located on the slopes of Everest. At the Base Camp, your goal, you’ll have the chance (during the spring climbing season) to meet climbers attempting to scale the mountain’s summit. Break out your cameras for unbelievable views of breathtaking beauty. As the afternoon sun starts to wane, we’ll head back to Gorekshep for some much-needed rest and relaxation after a grueling and busy day.

Day 8: Gorekshep - Kalapathar and Pheruche

Walking distance: 12-13 km (5-6 hours)

You wake before dawn today to trek towards Kalapathar (which means "black rock") for a fiery, glorious sunrise over Mt. Everest. The day’s first light will illuminate your spectacular view of Nuptse Cholatse and Lhotse. This may be, of the whole journey, you’re most opportune moment to snap amazing pictures of Everest and its neighboring peaks. Afterwards, it’s back to Gorekshep for breakfast and down in the direction of Pheruche, your accommodation stop. Your pace will be a lot brisker as you descend, and the walking is easier going this way.

Day 9: Pheruche to Namche

Distance of walking: 13-15 km (7-8 hours)

The walk from Pheruche back to Tengboche is mainly downhill, although it does, counter intuitively, require an hour scaling a hill. We'll be in Namche by late afternoon and off to bed before our last day on the mountain.

Day 10: Namche to Phadking and Lukla

Walking Distance: 16 km (6-7 hours)

After breakfast, you trek toward the Hillary Suspension Bridge and then pass through several local villages. Your arrival in Lukla brings an evening in a proper hotel and, traditionally, a party with your trekking crew: you made it! Thanks to great teamwork and perseverance.

Day 11: Lukla to Kathmandu Flight time: 35 min

In the morning, you'll hop a brief flight from Lukla to Kathmandu, where your journey both began and ends. You’ll transfer to your hotel upon landing for some much-needed solo rest and reflection after your trek glorious the Himalayas.

    Someone asked about using Monks & Monkeys Travels. My wife and I used Monks & Monkeys on a recent trip to South India and they did a wonderful job. Monks and Monkeys Travels, responded to all my queries immediately and selected some excellent hotels for us during our visit.

I only good experiences from the agency and have recommended Monks & Monkeys Travels to friends who told me they are thinking of visiting India.. Their prices are very reasonable and the service is first class.

    I went to Rajasthan and Varanasi from Oct 2014 to Nov 2014 for 16 days, on a private tour (with a driver). It was all arranged by Monks and Monkeys Travels Private Limited, through a girl named Kiran by email. Arrangement was done well, from driver, to train tickets, to hotels, to pick up and transfer from airport and train station. No problem at all. I will use this company again if I go to India again.
