Everest and neighboring peaks along with a lot of opportunity to expose yourself to mountain and alpine scenery.

Walk the exciting Everest Panorama trail following the rhododendron, pine and fir forests, the glacier-melt milky fast flowing Dudh Koshi River, passing over many impressive suspension bridges, homeland of world popular climbers and witness their well-preserved culture and monasteries.

After a short city sightseeing tour in Kathmandu we take a scenic flight to Lukla from where we begin our trek. We trek up to the Sherpa Capital, Namche Bazaar, rest there for two nights to ease acclimatization. After spending some amusing moments at Sherpa museum and Everest Photo Gallery, we continue to Tengboche and trek back through Khumjung village which is the biggest locale of Sherpa people.

Our flight may last up-to 40 minutes or so and so trekkers can use this moment to have a look at the first glances of the beautiful Himalayas. In this way, trekkers approach the Lukla airport where they get the first-hand personal experience of trekking as we are to ascend higher towards a small village called Phakding. We are now completely surrounding by staggeringly gorgeous hills which gives us the feeling of intense solitude far away from the noisy city areas.

Today trekkers get to spend their entire day in Namche Bazaar to make sure that we get properly acclimatized for our upcoming journey which is bound to go at higher altitudes than Namche Bazaar. One should never mess around with altitude as it can get pretty risky for you to continue on with your trek. With the increase in altitude, your body struggles to receive needed amount of oxygen in your blood streams which are necessary for the proper functioning of your vital organs such as brain and heart. Keeping that in mind, you have to manage your itinerary accordingly with a full day just for acclimatization in Namche Bazaar. Nonetheless, you can go out and make short decent hikes to nearby villages and monasteries as it enhances your body’s ability to acclimatize. Staying inside one’s, room whole day can make matter worst so you have to remain active for the entire day in which you can travel anywhere but close to Namche Bazaar.
