You will start walking on the trail after meeting the crew members in the small town of Lukla.

The trail follows the path alongside the Dudhkoshi River all the way up to Namche Bazaar. Various places like Phakding, Benkar, Sagarmatha National Park Entry Gate, Manjo, etc. fall on this junction.

Namche is the place where trekkers take the first acclimatization rest. It is Sherpa’s heartland and marketplace. You can find modern eateries and bars as well as advanced shops in this place.

Trekkers will hike to either Khumjung Village or Everest View Hotel on the rest day. The main idea of hiking is to adjust to an altitude. Guides will take you to a high altitude and again they will be taken back to low altitude for sleep overnight. This helps in quick acclimatization as well as warm up the body for the long walking journey.

Tengboche Monastery & Dingboche Village

Relish the spiritual experience in Tengboche Monastery and get excited in the prolific valley of Pangboche. Before reaching the Dingboche for the second acclimatization, these places will offer you plenty of attractions to behold. Mountains like Amadablam, Taboche, Lhotse, Nuptse, Everest etc. are usual sights. Relax your body and adjust to the thinning air and rising altitude.

Trekker finally starts to taste the high Himalayan experience while walking past Lobuche towards Gorakshep along the moraines and glacier. The final destination the Everest Base Camp looms large.

Details Itinerary

Your first impression of arriving at Tribhuvan International Airport is an experience in itself. But don’t be worried by the apparent confusion as your airport representative will be waiting to welcome you with your name written on a placard. Depending on traffic, you will be at your hotel within 20 minutes or so.

You have time to relax and enjoy the ambiance and comfort of the hotel until your evening Group Meeting. This is when we collect your insurance details and discuss how the trip will run for the coming days. After the meeting, we go for our first group dinner. Your tour leader will take you to a traditional Nepali restaurant in Thamel.

Namche Bazaar is at 3,440m and on this day we reach as high as 3880 m the Everest View Hotel. The key idea of getting proper acclimatization is reaching higher altitude and resting at a lower altitude. We will hike towards the Everest View Hotel. The scenery of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Tabuche, Amadablam, Thamserku, Kwangde, etc. mesmerizes this acclimatization hiking. If time permits, we will visit the mountain museum as well as Shyangboche Airport which is the highest situated airport in the world.

Ascending the valley, we have lunch at Shomare, after which we leave the trees behind and cross a wooden bridge at the confluence of the Khumbu and Imja Khola. A short steep climb brings us to Dingboche, at 4,400m, a summer settlement where great peaks surround us.

The second scheduled rest day assists to your fitness with oxygen intake before proceeding higher elevation. We hike to Nangkartshang hill for acclimatization and view of the mountain panorama. From here enjoy views of Makalu (8,463m) fifth highest mountain with awesome views of Amadablam, Cholatse, Tabuche, Lhotse and the Imjatse valley.

From Dingboche, our walk leads to a ridge marked with prayer flags and Stupas, then walking on nice gradual uphill facing marvelous scenery to reach a small place in Thugla where Khumbu glaciers melt into a torrential river.

A perfect place for rest and lunch stop, where afternoon walks leads to a steep climb at Thugla hill a place with many memorials of unfortunate climbers around peaks of Khumbu and Everest. The walk continues for another few hours on nice gradual up to Lobuche for an overnight stop, a place with several nice lodges with views of Pumori, Nuptse and Lobuche peaks.

Today is the day of the great walk towards our main highlight and final destination the Everest Base Camp. As morning walk leads on the open wide valley with a slow climb to reach above Khumbu glaciers. We will walk through moraines towards Gorakshep, a place with few lodges on the junction of Everest base camp and Kala Patthar route.

Gorakshep used to be a base camp of Everest in the past 1950 to late 1970 before the route was made further 4-6 k.m to reach present base camp. From Gorakshep few hours walk over moraine and glacier to reach our ultimate destination at base camp with sweeping views of giant peaks of Nuptse-Lo la, Nuptse with notorious huge Khumbu Ice Falls and glaciers. In high mountaineering season, this place will be active with climbers and crews with many camps set on top of moraine and glaciers.

After a grand time, we then head back to Gorakshep for the highest overnight stop of the adventure with fantastic memories of the day walks to Everest base camp.

After spectacular day yesterday reaching the Everest Base Camp today is another milestone day of our trek. Early in the morning, we hike to Kalapathar (5545 m). We need to rush towards hill top for the mesmerizing sunrise view. Gazing the sun rising through the casement of mountains including the Mt. Everest is a joyous experience to collect in our memory tale. The panoramic view of mountains like Nuptse, Pumori, Lhotse, Everest, Amadablam, Cholatse, Tabuche, Changtse, Lo-la, Lingtren, Khumbutse and many more can be seen from the top.

We will then descend to Gorakshep for breakfast. The day's trekking is also called an unwinding trip as the altitude decreases and oxygen level increases. We will reach to Pheriche (4200 m) for the overnight sleep.

Client Reviews

Lorraine Morgan

Trip Name: Short Poon Hill Trek

Booked this trek from the comfort at home in the UK. Communication with Dil was brilliant, his response to all my emails were quick and courteous. He tailored the trek around us, as a small group of 4 adults ranging in age from 29 to 69 (who was still recovering from an ACL op last May). His pace was brilliant for our group.

Dil arranged to meet us in our hotel in Kathmandu and talked us through the trek, bringing maps, holdalls and T-Shirts.

The trek was for 3 nights, 4 days staying in good, clean lodges. All was included except our drinks.

We experienced trekking in glorious sunshine up to Poon Hill. There was still snow on the ground and Dil provided the group with crampons, which made walking easier and safer.

Our trek started and ended in Pokhara. Dil and his team collected us from our hotel in Pokhara promptly at the time agreed.

Dil and the porters were brilliant, the porters were more than porters and made our trek even more enjoyable. We felt totally safe and Dil was an excellent guide. The scenery was spectacular.

Would certainly use Awesome Nepal Treks again as Dil arranges trips to Tibet and Bhutan.

My cousin and I traveled to Nepal in 2011 and completed the Everest Basecamp Trek with our guide Dil Thapa.
Dil absolutely made sure this trek would far exceed my expectations and I am grateful for the time we shared together in Nepal.
There are an endless amount of photos and videos online for us to see the natural beauty of Nepal before arriving there. The greatest compliment I can give Nepal (more specifically, Dil Thapa) is this, the beauty of Nepal is its people first and foremost.
