    Dole to Machhermo (4,470m/ 14,663ft): 3-4 hours

    From Dole we will cross Labarma and Luza villages before reaching Machhermo. There is a Chhorten

    right before the Luza village. Throughout today’s journey we will be walking alongside the Dudh Koshi

    River. Overnight in Machhermo.

  • Day 7 -

    Machhermo to Gokyo (4,800 m/15,744 ft): 4-5 hours

    We begin today by climbing a ridge for an excellent view down the valley to Kangtaiga and also up

    towards Cho Oyu (8153 m). We will encounter first lake and second lake, we reach the third lake, the

    two linked by a surging stream. Gokyo village stands by the third lake and Cho-Oyu Mountain as a

    backdrop sets an amazing spectacular sight here. Overnight in Gokyo.

  • Day 8 -

    Ngozumpa glacier to reach Thangnak.

  • Day 10 -

    Thagnak to Cho La pass (5,367m/17,604 ft) to Dzongla (15, 939 ft): 7 - 8 hours

    Today is going to be one of the toughest days of the trip. The Cho La pass is not itself difficult, but it is

    steep and involves a glacier traverse on the eastern side. We need to be careful as the trail is vertical

    and the rocks glazed by ice may cause trouble by making the trail slippery. We need to pass through

    some crevasses before we reach Dzongla Village. The village provides great views of Cholatse, Ama

    Dablam, Lobuche mountains along with the Pheriche Village far below.

  • Day 11 -

    Dzongla to Lobuche (4940 m/16,207 ft): 2 - 3 hours

    This will be a very short trek so we have a lot time to relax and enjoy the beauty that surrounds us. We

    climb down from Dzongla and walk through a grassy trail while enjoying the view of Lobuche Peak.

    Overnight in Lobuche.

  • Day 12 -

    Lobuche to Gorak Shep (5,170 m/16,961ft), visit Everest Base Camp (5,364 m/17,594 ft): 6-7 hours

    We take the trail to Everest Base Camp through the once vast Gorak Shep Lake. Continuing straight

    ahead, we come across the Indian army mountaineers' memorials. The path from here can be

    misleading; hence, it is important that we follow our lead Sherpa diligently. The walk is strenuous due to

    thin air in the high altitude. We pass through rocky dunes, moraine and streams before reaching the

    Everest Base Camp. Overnight in Gorak Shep.

  • Day 13 -

    Gorak Shep to Kala Patthar (5,545m/18,192ft) to Pherice (4,288m/14,070ft): 7-8 hours

    We prepare for an early morning departure, amid pre-dawn darkness and cold temperatures (-10 to -14

    C). Plus, there is always the potential for chilly winds which are quite common. Familiar peaks such as

    Lingtren, Khumbutse, and Changtse tower to the east even as Everest begins to reveal itself. But, it is

    upon reaching Kala Patthar that we get to see 360 degree up-close and formidable views of Mt. Everest.

    We take pictures, enjoy the magnificent mountain panorama, and then return back to Pheriche for a

    good night's rest. Overnight in Pheriche.

  • Day 14 -

    Pheriche to Namche Bazaar: 6 - 7 hours

    We trek down through the hillside blanketed by rhododendron and juniper trees. After crossing the

    prayer-flag festooned bridge over the Dudh Koshi River, our trail follows the Dudh Koshi gorge

    descending rapidly through pine forests. In the forest, we may come across colorful pheasants and

    mountain goats. The path eventually reaches Sansa from where we can enjoy views of Ama Dablam,

    Thamserku and Nuptse mountains. We also pass winding trails then through a forest before reaching

    Namche Bazaar. Overnight in Namche Bazaar.

  • Day 15 -

    Namche Bazaar to Lukla (2,860m/9,186ft): 6 - 7 hours

    The trail descends steeply downward so we need to walk cautiously as our shaky legs continuously

    battle the rocky terrain. After crossing the suspension bridges over the fast flowing Dudh Koshi and its

    tributaries, the trail becomes more level and natural. After our arrival in Lukla, we stretch those sore

    legs and recall the experiences of the last couple of days. Overnight in Lukla.

  • Day 16 -

    Fly back to Kathmandu.

    We catch an early morning flight to Kathmandu after our long mountain journey. After reaching

    Kathmandu, we can take a rest or do some souvenir shopping. If we want to explore any other areas of

    Kathmandu, we may do that today.

  • Day 17 -
