Day 01 : Arrival in Kathmandu

Day 02 : Sightseeing

Day 03 : Kathmandu - Lukla - Phakding: By plane to Lukla airport in East Nepal. The airport is situated on 2,800 meters altitude. Walk to Phakding at 2,800 meters. As you mighty have noticed the information about altitudes vary from source to source. For this itinerary, I have chosen to mention the altitudes given by the Lonely Planet "Trekking in Nepal Himalaya". Even most altimeters will give different information due to how it is programmed in relation to temperature.

In Phakding you make your first camp. During the trek there will be a staffs including cook, route men, porters and helpers. You will stay in tents, two people in each tent; there will be a dining tent for the meals.

Day 04 : Phakding - Namche: Walk to Namche Bazaar at 3,440 meters. Follow Dudh Kosi River upstream. In Jorsale we stop for lunch before climbing the steep 600 meters up to Namche at 3,440 meters. Make it a slow because
you might be slightly affected by the altitude.

Day 05 : This is a rest day for acclimatisation. Namche Bazaar is the traditional centre for the Sherpa community. It has also become a famous place for trekkers from all over the world. Many of the Nepalese who have climbed Everest and the other high peaks in Nepal live here. Visit the market and enjoy the small restaurants with local delicacies like buttered tea or yak cheese. You can even get Western bread.

Day 06 : Walk to Tengboche Monastery at 3,870 meters. While walking you get a splendid view of both Everest and
Lhotse, the forth-highest mountain (8,488 m.)

Day 07 : Walk to Dingboche at 4,530 meters. You start going through rhododendron forest, cross the river and continue to Pangboche for lunch. Make a visit to the gompa. Here they keep the well-known scalp of a yeti. The famous mountain Amadablam will follow you to the right the whole day.

Day 08 : You stay one day in Dingboche for acclimatization. During the day you can walk close to the glaciers or you can climb the small mountain behind the lodge. From here you can see Makalu, the fifth highest mountain 8,463meters.

Day 09 : Walk to Lobuche 4,930 meters

Day 10 : Walk to Gorak Shep 5, 160 meters, which you will reach about lunchtime. This will be your campsite for three nights. Spend the rest day resting and going to bed early.

Day 11 : Get up early in the morning to walk up to the Kalapattar 5,545 meters. Kalapattar has one of the best views of the top of Mr. Everest. Sagarmatha is the name in Nepalese and Quomolonga in the name in Tibetan and Sherpa Languages. Watch the early rays of sum on the top. The descent to Gorak Shep is quite difficult and steep. So take it easy. Stay in Gorak Shep.

Day 12 : This day we will walk to Mt. Everest base camp 5,360 meters. However, you will not be able to camp there. There will probably be snow and difficult to prepare a camp. You will walk back to your camp at Gorak Shep and stay one last night there.
