We bit by bit go up higher than the Imja Khola and get to the tea houses found at Orsho before going across the old glacial moraines on the way to our hotel, we will see the community of Dingboche. The background is impressive here while the views of Everest is hidden at the back the Lhotse-Nuptse edge; and we will also see the massive peaks that goes up above the eastern end valley.  Overnight at best available Lodge [3 times Hot & healthy Meals included]

Dingboche is a striking jumble of small fields bounded by stone walls caring the crops of barley as well as potatoes from the frosty winds. At the back of our lodge in Dingboche, the huge rock looks of Tawoche seem as if we are living in something called heaven. Walking to Chhukung is an additional option on this day. The things to see here are amazing in this valley; the towering south look of Lhotse lying to the north, Island Peak in the central part of the valley and the nameless peaks is ,makes a series on the southern end of the valley. Overnight at best available  Lodge [3 times Hot & healthy Meals included]

After the sunrise, we come up the small point at the back the village above Pheriche Valley. At the top, Tawoche and Cholatse (6440m) strikes us with its image which seems to tilt frontward from across the valley in the west. To the north, Lobuche Peak (6119m) and the snowfields of Cho La is prominent. The walking is now by and large flat on wide-open fields, but make sure that you are well hydrated. Then, we cross the Khumbu Khola at Dughla (4620m) and take a light lunch at the foot of the huge terminal moraines of Khumbu Glacier. The fantastic view of Pumori (7145m) and, across the border in Tibet, Changtse (7550m), are seen at the top of the valley at the same time Everest disappears behind the gigantic walls of Nuptse and Lhotse.  Overnight at Eco Lodge/ Mother Earth Home [3 times Hot & healthy Meals included]

From Lobuche, we will trek to Gorakshep. It gives a chance to have a relaxing breakfast before initial the day’s stroll. From Lobuche, we will trek to the wide valley that is similar to Khumbu Glacier. When we get there at Changri Nup Glacier, we will make a chain of small up and downward path over a shaky path lined with cairns that confirms the way finally to the astonishing glacials of Gorak Shep (5160m). And after that, we head off to the Everest Base Camp. Overnight stay at best avaiable lodge in Goraksherp [3 times Hot & healthy Meals included]

We will trek to Kala Patar (5545m/18192.26 ft) in the morning to observe wonderful sunrise views from this amazing vantage point. Kala Patar is the rock-strewn peak under Pumori. It is a hard-hitting stroll due to the elevation, yet the top view is away from our imagination. We get going for Lobuche, where we will halt for lunch. And then we will trek to Pagboche for overnight at Everest Summit Lodge. [3 times Hot & healthy Meals included]

This morning will seem much easier as you are descending and are at a lower altitude than you have been at for the last five days. If you did not have a chance to visit the gompa in Pangboche on the way up it would be worth a quick visit now. Leaving Pangboche you descend to cross a bridge over a terrifying gorge before making a short climb in forest to Thyangboche – watch out for musk deer and pheasants in the woods along here. From Thyangboche you descend to the river at Phungithanga and then make the final climb of the day up through pine forest to reach the very beautiful Sherpa village Khumjung. It will seem delightfully warm at this altitude and the air positively packed with oxygen!! Overnight Stay at Everest View Hotel [3 times Hot & healthy Meals included]

From Khumjung village you take a delightful undulating trail with some of your last high altitude mountain views of the trek, looking across to the summits of Thamserkhu and Kangtaiga. You reach a corner in the trail and then will find Namche below you. You descend into Namche and have time to enjoy a bit of souvenir shopping at the market, before making the knee crunching descent back down to the valley. Market day in Namche is a very important event for the people of the Khumbu. In the days before the market the trail up from the lowlands is busy with porters carrying supplies – everything from rice, eggs and beer to trainers, saucepans and CDs. Then on Saturday Sherpa’s from all the villages around flock to Namche to do their shopping and also to restock the tea houses. (NB Namche is visited on a Sunday on our 10 November 2013 departure so a visit to the market will not be possible.) The warmer climate should offer a good opportunity to finally shed a layer or two. You will still have wonderful views, and the chance to relax in slightly warmer valley surroundings. Trek back down the Dudh Kosi valley for a short way past the checkpoint at Jorsale to Monjo. Overnight Yeti Mountain Home 

Most people head towards Lukla with a heavy heart. There is something very special about the setting, the villages and the people of the high Khumbu hills and valleys and these memories will help you up the deceptively long, final climb into Lukla. The trail to Lukla follows the main trail as far as Chablung, and then turns off above the village of Chaunrikharka towards Lukla. There are signs beyond the stream at Chablung pointing you in the direction of Lukla. The broad trail, leading uphill to the left, climbs steadily past a few bhattis and the school, then through scrub forests above the school and houses of Chaunrikharka. After a steep final climb there is a collection of houses and bhattis in Tamang Tole, a new settlement a short distance from the airport. As you approach the airstrip the houses and hotels rapidly proliferate. On arrival you can finally relax and perhaps enjoy a celebratory beer. Overnight Yeti Mountain Home, Lukla.

Today we leave the mountains behind and fly back to Kathmandu. Please note that flights into Lukla are sometimes delayed due to weather conditions either in fog-bound Kathmandu or windy Lukla; be reassured that our staff in Lukla and in Kathmandu will be doing everything possible to minimise the inconvenience caused if this happens. Your patience in the trying circumstances, which can occur, will be greatly appreciated. Your final day of leisure in Kathmandu does of course provide a valuable ‘cushion’ against missing your flight home, should the Lukla flight be delayed. On arrival in Kathmandu you will be met and transferred to the Dwarika's Hotel [Welcome Dinner]- Deluxe Room

On this day, you can go around Kathmandu city. This a reserve day to stay in Nepal for bad weather situations. Also, you can make plan for shopping.

Vital information

******* Climate and Seasonality *******

Nepal is subject to monsoon which determines the choice of trekking areas depending on the season: Spring Seasons [March to May] is ideal to watch the explosion of vegetation, including rhododendrons, and from around the Annapurna sanctuary trek to Everest, Generally clear skies in the morning, marked cloudiness in the late afternoon. The more we advance towards the month of May (monsoon), the more clouds rise early.

[Mid September to November] This is the main trekking season in Nepal. Day temperatures in Kathmandu are approx. above 20degC. Skies are usually clear and days on trek are sunny and mild with clear mountain views. Nights will be colder with temperatures dropping as low as to -5degC at the higher altitudes.

Summer Season Starts from June to September. Dolpo trekking and Mustang trekking of Nepal, and Tibet tour can be done in the monsoon.

Winter, from Mid December to late February, the cold is dry, the clear sky, the sunshine ... Many benefits without the tourist season. For example, short trek like chisopani and nagrkot trek, ghorepani poonhill trekking, Ghandruk Village trek would ideal for Winter Treks.

******* Travel Insurance *******

It is a condition of joining any of our holidays that you are insured against medical and personal accident risks (to include repatriation costs, air ambulance and helicopter rescue services). We also strongly recommend that you take out delayed departure and cancellation insurance, as all deposits paid are non-refundable.

A relaxed trip is not possible without good travel insurance. In the event of any sickness or injury, the cost of emergency treatment and evacuation is shocking. Therefore, travel insurance is strongly recommended for everyone who signs up with Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions.

We strongly recommend that you be careful while choosing a policy as some makes special exceptions for adventure travel. Before buying your insurance, please ensure that your insurer is aware of your MSTE itinerary and can agree to cover the activities being undertaken in the trip to Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan & India. Such as if you are planning trekking or climbing/expedition in Himalayas your insurance must cover emergency air ambulance/helicopter rescue including medical expenses.

For a group tours in urban areas, your insurance coverage of ambulance or helicopter rescue is not mandatory, however better to have with them too. Again, in Tibet, Bhutan & India trips there is no possibility of helicopter rescue, so no need to buy the air ambulance coverage.You need send us your copy of your insurance policy (e.g. your insurance certificate) or carry it with you while you come on the trip.
