Day 1: Arrive Kathmandu

It is a panoramic thrill flying into Kathmandu on a clear day. The views of snow-capped mountain peaks sprawling down below you are almost ecstatic, beginning a whole chain of memorable experiences that stay with you for a long, long time. Our representative and driver will meet you at the airport and escort you to your hotel. At the hotel, you will be briefed about your daily activities.

Day 2: Kathmandu

This morning we will take a walk down to the famous Durbar Square, just 30 minutes from the hotel. This is also home to the Kumari, or Living Goddess, who can sometimes be seen as she peers shyly from her temple surroundings. There's just so much to see and take in on your first day, so we have left most of it free for you to explore in small groups.

Days 3: Lukla to Phakding

Today's 30 minute flight from Kathmandu to Lukla traverses the main range of the Himalaya to the East and enters the heart of one of the most famous mountain destinations in the world - the Mt Everest Region. Upon arrival in Lukla we'll be met by our trek crew, and then start our walk to the delightful village of Phakding. Our first day is a very easy 3 hour stroll through Sherpa villages and along the Dudh Kosi River. We'll be camping at an altitude of around 2700 metres on our first night, and then at around 2900 metres the next night at Monjo before climbing steeply up to the Sherpa capital of Namche Bazaar.

Day 4: Phakding to Monjo

Today was the walk from Phakding to Monjo - a harder trek than yesterday ....You went over a massive suspension bridge today that was built by the Swiss to help preserve the area. On your arrival at Monjo, Our Staffs will serve you a Fresh Juice and we will be staying at Monjo this Night.

Day 5: Monjo to Namche

The walk to Namche, at 3400 metres, gives us some of the most amazing views of peaks such as Lhotse (the worlds fourth highest mountain), the amazing shape of Taweche, and of course Mt Everest, or as the Sherpas call it - Sagarmatha. We'll reach Namche in time for lunch after which you're free to shop for that elusive Tibetan antique, turquoise necklace or Ghurkha knife amongst the narrow streets of this amazing little town.

Day 6: Namche

Namche Bazaar is the traditional trading centre for the Sherpa people who migrated from Tibet many centuries ago. From high up on the village you can look down on a horseshoe of houses and lodges that has been described as something like "an ancient Greek theatre". We spend two nights in Namche acclimatizing to the increased altitude. During our second day in Namche we'll visit the National Park Office which gives a wonderful description of the Park and its history, as well as some stunning views up the valley towards Mt Everest. Some people might also like to walk up the delightful valley towards Thami or you may just want to relax and check you e-mail at one of the recently established internet cafes!

Day 7: Namche to Thyangboche

From Namche we move up the valley toward Thyangboche at 3900 metres. This has to be one of the most enjoyable and scenic days walk in Nepal. As we leave Namche the panorama of Kusum Kanguru, Tamserku and Kangtaga gives way to the even more amazing form of Ama Dablam, arguably the most beautiful and striking of all peaks in the Himalaya. Not long after our view becomes even more extensive with a vista that extends from Cholaste to the massive south wall of Nupste and Lhotse, and the black triangular mass of Mt Everest peering above. After lunch we cross a small bridge, just outside the village of Phunki Tenga, then climb 600 metres up to Thyangboche Gompa through a glorious rhododendron forest - at this time of year it will be covered in a blanket of yellow, red and white flowers. We set up camp near the Buddhist Monastery which in 1933 was destroyed by an earthquake and then rebuilt only to have substantial damaged caused by a fire in 1989. We will be visiting both the Monastery and the museum during our stay. In the early morning, before we leave Thyangboche to retrace our steps back to Lukla, will walk high on the ridge behind the village and watch the sun rise over the valley to one of the most amazing views of Mt Everest and the surrounding peaks.

Day 8: Thayangboche to Khumjung
