We woke up early and grabbed a packed breakfast before heading to Tribhuvan Airport. From there, we caught a thrilling flight to Lukla, enjoying stunning views of snow-capped peaks along the way.

After touching down, we met up with our crew, sorted our gear, and fueled up with hot tea or coffee. Then, we started our trek to Phakding, trekking alongside the Dudh Koshi river. The trail led us through lush forests and charming villages, and after about 3-4 hours, we reached Phakding.

We kept the hike short for better acclimatization, and if anyone wanted, they could check out a nearby monastery or just soak in the beauty of Phakding. We spent the night at a cozy teahouse or guesthouse there.

Early start after breakfast in Phakding. Trekking 5-6 hours today, navigating ups and downs, pine forests, and suspension bridges over Dudh Koshi river. Enjoy stunning views of Thamserku (6618m). Pass through Benkar, Chumoa, and Monjo settlements, checking permits at Sagarmatha National Park entrance. Gradual uphill to Jorsale village, then onto Namche Bazaar.

Today is our first acclimatization day, crucial for adjusting to the altitude. We'll hike a bit higher to help our bodies adjust. First stop is the tourist center near Sagarmatha National Park HQ, where we'll dive into the history of Everest climbers and learn about Sherpa culture and local flora/fauna.

Next, we can trek up to Khumjung and Khunde Sherpa villages, maybe even check out the famous Syangboche airstrip, where the Everest View Hotel offers stunning mountain vistas. Khumjung valley, nestled between Kongde and Thamserku peaks, hosts the Edmund Hillary School.

After lunch and some chill time at Syangboche, we'll head back down to Namche Bazaar.

The trek from Namche Bazaar to Dole is a picturesque journey through the heart of the Himalayas. Starting from Namche, nestled in the mountains, the trail gradually ascends, offering stunning views of Everest and neighboring peaks. As we leave Namche behind, the landscape changes, transitioning from lush greenery to alpine terrain.

The trail winds its way through rhododendron forests, crossing streams and traversing rocky paths. Along the way, we may encounter yak herders and pass by small Sherpa villages, each with its own charm and character.

As we gain altitude, the air becomes thinner, and the scenery becomes even more awe-inspiring. Towering peaks surround us, their snow-capped summits glistening in the sunlight. We continue our ascent, taking in the beauty of the Himalayan landscape.

After several hours of trekking, we reach Dole, a quaint village nestled in a valley surrounded by towering peaks. Here, we can relax and unwind, enjoying the tranquility of the mountains and the warm hospitality of the local Sherpa people. Dole marks another milestone on our journey through the Himalayas, offering a glimpse into the rugged beauty and rich culture of this remarkable region.

After a hearty breakfast in Dole, we lace up our boots and hit the trail towards Machhermo. The journey kicks off with a challenging uphill stretch before leveling out, treating us to panoramic vistas of valleys and mountains in every direction.

Over the course of about 4 hours, we wind our way through the hillsides above Dudh Koshi river, passing sandy spurs and quaint hamlets along the way. Machhermo emerges as the final major settlement before the Gokyo trek's ultimate destination.

Tonight, we rest our weary legs in Machhermo, soaking in the tranquility of the mountains and relishing the sense of accomplishment that comes with each step of our journey.

Today, we're heading to the gorgeous spot of Gokyo. We kick things off with a hike up a ridge, soaking in breathtaking views of the Himalayas along the way. Traversing a glacial moraine, we eventually arrive at Gokyo village nestled beside a pristine lake. The trek takes about 4 hours from Machhermo.

As we ascend, iconic peaks like Everest, Lhotse, and Makalu reveal themselves, painting a stunning backdrop. Once in Gokyo, we can explore the village and soak up the tranquil vibes of the serene lake. It's a day of awe-inspiring scenery and unforgettable moments. Tonight, we'll rest up in Gokyo, ready for whatever adventures tomorrow brings.

We rise with the dawn, embarking on a journey upwards towards the summit of Gokyo Ri. The ascent is arduous, taking us a good 2-3 hours of steep climbing. But the exertion is well worth it, for atop this peak lies a breathtaking reward: the awe-inspiring vistas of the magnificent Gokyo Valley, and the sprawling expanse of the Ngozumpa Glacier.

From this vantage point, the panorama unfolds before us in all its glory—the majestic peaks of the Khumbu Valley Himalayas stand tall and proud. Mount Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho-Oyu, and more, they grace the skyline in a stunning display of nature's grandeur. Some say the view from Gokyo Peak surpasses even that from Kala Patthar, and as we gaze upon the majestic beauty surrounding us, it's easy to see why.

Our day is spent immersed in the wonders of Gokyo, exploring its surroundings and soaking in its natural splendor. Each moment etches itself into our memories, creating an unforgettable experience that will remain vivid in our minds for a lifetime.

After breakfast, we leave the breathtaking heights of Gokyo behind and head towards the peaceful Sherpa village of Phorse. Descending from Gokyo Valley, we traverse rugged terrain and picturesque landscapes, passing through charming mountain hamlets along the way.

The trail treats us to lush forests and babbling streams as we make our way closer to Phorse Village, nestled in the Himalayan foothills. Upon arrival, we're embraced by the village's tranquil atmosphere and rustic beauty, finding solace in the simplicity of mountain life.

As the day draws to a close, we reflect on our journey thus far, filled with a sense of fulfillment and excitement for the adventures that await. Tonight, we rest and recharge, eagerly anticipating the next chapter of our expedition.

After a cozy night at our Sherpa lodge in Phortse Village, we're up and ready to roll by 7:30 AM. Today's adventure takes us on a scenic hike from Phortse to Pangboche, promising jaw-dropping views of the Khumbu valley along the way.

With our packed lunches and hot drinks in hand, we pause to admire the breathtaking views of the Himalayas. It's a moment of pure bliss amidst the rugged beauty.

After soaking it all in at Ama Dablam Base Camp, we reluctantly head back to Pangboche for the night. But don't worry, the memories of today will stay with us, keeping us excited for what's to come on this incredible journey.

Today, we're focusing on acclimatization, a vital part of our journey. After breakfast, our Sherpa guide leads us on a day hike from Dingboche to Nagarjuna peak, situated at about 14,469 feet (4,410 meters) above sea level. The trail winds through rocky terrain as we ascend towards the ridge on Dingboche's north side. Along the way, we enjoy stunning panoramic views of towering mountains like Mt. Lhotse, Mt.

At the summit, we're rewarded with breathtaking views of the Himalayan landscape, making the challenging ascent truly worthwhile. After soaking in the scenery and capturing memorable moments, we descend to Dingboche to rest and recharge, feeling more acclimated for the altitude as we continue our journey towards Everest Base Camp.

The hike from Dingboche to Lobuche is an exhilarating adventure through the Khumbu region, showcasing stunning landscapes and majestic mountain views. As you leave Dingboche, the trail gradually climbs, offering incredible panoramas of Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Nuptse, and other towering peaks. Trekking across rocky terrain, glacial streams, and moraines, you'll experience the breathtaking high-altitude environment.

After a quick stop at Thukla, where the trail steepens toward the Thukla Pass, you'll come across memorials honoring climbers lost on Everest. Descending past the pass, you'll arrive at Lobuche, situated at around 16,109 feet, a tranquil village surrounded by snow-capped peaks.

Lobuche serves as a peaceful oasis for rest and relaxation before you continue your journey toward Everest Base Camp, offering unforgettable mountain vistas and an iconic Himalayan adventure.

The trail begins with a gentle descent alongside the Dudh Koshi River, winding through rhododendron and pine forests.
