Tour Duration: 4 Hrs. After breakfast, we'll head off for a day of exploring. The Pashupatinath Temple, located by the Baghmati River, is a well-known Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. One of the most important Hindu temples in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The temple is designed in the manner of a golden pagoda and has silver doors. A large fair is conducted around the month of Shivaratri on the day of Shivaratri. The Bouddhanath stupa, one of the world's largest stupas, is located in Kathmandu's eastern district. It stands with four pairs of eyes in each of the four directions, keeping an eye out for good deeds and human success. This magnificent Stupa was built by King Man Deva on the instruction of the Goddess Mani Jogini. The Mahayana philosophy is reflected in the Stupa. After returning from the tour, you will have some time to recover and arrange your kit, among other things. In the motel for the night.
Walking Duration: 5 Hrs. We fly to Lukla airfield early in the morning for a fantastic flight. The little fixed-wing aircraft lands on the airfield after roughly 40 minutes of thrilling and gorgeous flight, and we enter the lovely town of Lukla. At Lukla, our entire expedition crew will be waiting for us. We begin our day's travel to Payon after an initial meeting with the crew members. A pleasant walk of about 5 hours is required. We walk to our destination for around 5 hours, passing through various villages and forested areas. Before reaching Payon, we'll enjoy a spectacular view of Kongde Ri when we ride through Surke and Pakhapani.
Walking Duration: 6 Hrs. Today's hike begins with a hard downhill segment. We're on our way to Pangkongma, a lovely settlement. We leave the Khumbu region and continue walking to the Hinku valley. As we move towards our destination, the breathtaking view of the Himalayan sceneries entices us more and more. The terrain challenges us with an uphill trail to Pangkongma after crossing Khare Khola. After a 6-hour hike, we arrive in Pangkongma and spend the night there.
Walking Duration: 6 Hrs. We begin our hike through a rhododendron and bamboo forest in the direction of Pangkongma La, which is 3170 meters above sea level. Pangkongma La, a pebbled trail that leads to a spectacular view of Mera peak, is reached by walking on the pebbled trail. After taking in the scenery for a while, we begin our descent through the pine forest to the Hinku River. We'll have to walk for another 6 hours to reach our objective, Nashing Dingma. Overnight stay in a local hotel.
Walking Duration: 6 Hrs. We eat breakfast and set off on our day's adventure. The first portion is a tough uphill hike amid green mountain foliage and cow grazing fields. Today will be a difficult alpine bush hike, requiring us to maintain our balance while traversing the slick track. We take a trip through grazing fields, mountain vegetation, and a rhododendron and fir woodland before settling down. We stroll through grazing fields, mountain shrubbery, and a rhododendron and fir woodland before settling on a decent spot for the night. We would have already traveled about 6 hours of trek before arriving at the campsite. Camp for the night.
Today, we're walking to Chunbu Kharka, which sits at 4200 meters above sea level. It's a strenuous day of roughly 6 hours of uphill walking at a high altitude amid a vast alpine scenery. On our way uphill towards a pass to cross, we travel through various grazing meadows before arriving at Chunbu Kharka, where we will set up tent. Camp for the night.
Walking Duration: 6 Hrs. For the most part, the trail to Kothe in the Hinku Valley is a downward stroll. It's a steep downhill trail through a verdant forest. The six-hour trip on a downward trail will be difficult, and we must use extreme caution. We set up camp on the river bank at Kothe once we've descended to the river's edge. Camp for the night.
Walking Duration: 6 Hrs. Today's trek leads us to Tagnag along Hinku Khola's ridge. We travel for around 5 hours today to get to our destination, passing via Gondishung and passing by the Lungsumgba monastery, an old Buddhist monastery. Herders can also attend temporary summer camps here. We continue walking towards Tagnag, where we will set up camp. Camp for the night.
We stayed an extra day here to get used to the higher altitude. As part of our acclimatization phase, we go for some hiking exploration. Spend the night at a tented camp.
Walking Duration: 6 Hrs. Today we go to Khare via Dig Kharka. We're on our way to a higher elevation of 4945 meters above sea level. Today's trek offers spectacular views of snow-capped alpine summits. We take a leisurely stroll towards Dig Kharka and then on to Khare. When we arrive in Khare, we are greeted by a breathtaking vista of Mera Peak, our trip's first destination peak. At Khare, we set up camp and stay overnight there.
Walking Duration: 4 Hrs. Today's walk will take us about 4 hours to reach Mera Base Camp. We arrive to Mera Base Camp after hiking up a difficult hill to set up camp and eat lunch there. At an altitude of 5300 meters above sea level, we made up camp in our tents. After lunch, we can go for a walk around the neighborhood to get a feel for the weather. Back at base camp, we'll discuss our climbing process and the path we'll take. Spend the night at a tented camp.
After breakfast, we'll make our way to high camp. Our day is made a little more difficult by a difficult climb through snow and multiple crevasses. However, climbing expeditions are inherently dangerous. We acclimate to the atmosphere and surroundings and carefully make our way up to high camp. When we get at the high camp, we pitch our tents. Tents will be used for the night.
Today is Mera Peak's summit day, the first of our trip's expedition peaks. We begin the ascent early in the morning, walking through the snow to the summit. Mera Peak is a less technical mountain to climb, and once we reach the top, we can enjoy a wonderful view of Everest, the world's tallest mountain, and the 8000-meter mountains of Lhotse (8516m) and Cho Oyu (8210m), as well as several other Amazing mount peaks such as Ama Dablam, Kangtega, Chamlang etc. We descend to the base camp after taking in the breathtaking views from the peak of Mera Peak. Base Camp is a great place to spend the night.
We begin our day's trip to a secluded section in Honku Valley. We're approaching the most isolated and tough part of the journey. The first section of the trek takes you down a scree-filled slope, which necessitates a very balanced and careful descent. We've set up camp in the Upper Honku Valley for the night.
After breakfast at the camp, we begin our walk early in the morning. We travel towards Panch Pokhari, the Amphu Labtsa pass's base camp. Panch Pokhari means "five ponds" in Hindi, and we observe those five sacred ponds where Hindu pilgrims go on holy pilgrimage tours. We stroll across a track that is covered in glacial moraine before arriving at Panch Pokhari. We set up camp and relax after we reach Panch Pokhari, which is located at an elevation of 5400 meters above sea level. Camp for the night.
We've spent the day at the camp, resting and preparing for tomorrow's hike across Amphu Labtsa. While we gather energy for tomorrow's trip, our team members will repair all of the technical equipment required for climbing this challenging Amphu Labtsa. We'll get some great views of Hinku Nup Glacier and Mingbo La while resting at the base camp. Stay overnight at the base camp.
The Amphu Labtsa pass, at an elevation of 5845 meters above sea level, will be crossed today. The initial portion of this major day crossing pass will take roughly 3 hours of climbing to reach the Amphu Labtsa pass. On a fixed line set up by our crew members, it's a complex ascent to the pass that's really difficult. We can enjoy a spectacular view of the towering Himalayan peaks once we reach the pass. We gently drop down on fixed rope after spending some time at the pass waiting for the rest of the team to arrive. We trek down the Imja Glacier and up to Chhukung, where we will spend the night. It's been a long day full of adventure and gorgeous technical climbs, wonderful views, and walking on the moraine glacial
Walking Duration: 6 Hrs. In comparison to yesterday, this is a relatively simple day. We arrive at the Island Peak Base Camp in the afternoon, after a leisurely stroll, to set up camp. Our crew members will set up camp once we get at base camp, giving us time to roam around and rest. Camp for the night.
Today is another huge adventure day as we travel to the summit of Island Peak, also known as Imja Tse, which is located at an elevation of 6189 meters above sea level. We begin our day's journey early in the morning, walking up the rough section of the mountain. We must travel through a glacier up to the summit ridge through a snow gully after traversing the rocky section. The most exciting part of the experience, the last ascent to the summit, is about to begin. We reach the summit ridge and then the summit of Island Peak after crossing multiple fixed ropes. We are captivated by the stunning view of Lhotse and several other big mountain peaks once we reach the top ridge and summit. We begin descend back to base camp after spending great time at the summit and snapping pictures. Stay at base camp for the night.
Today we hike to Pangboche, where we will join the Everest Base Camp expedition. We walk to our destination, passing through Chhukung and other towns along the way, taking in the culture and natural beauty of the Everest region. We can enjoy a spectacular view of multiple mountain peaks once we arrive at Pangboche settlement, which will help us forget about our exhaustion from walking. Pangboche is a good place to spend the night.
After breakfast, we take a walk down to Namche Bazar. The first part of the trip takes us up to Tengboche, where we may visit the famous Tengboche monastery and get a taste of the region's Buddhist culture and rituals. We travel all the way down to Namche Bazar through a woody downhill trail after exploring Tengboche monastery. Namche Bazar is a good place to spend the night.
At Lukla, we will do a round journey today. We eventually reach Lukla via trekking past Monjo, Phakding, and several other gorgeous spots as we follow the trail down to the Dudh Koshi River and walk alongside it. When we arrive in Lukla, we say our goodbyes to our incredible crew members who helped us have such a wonderful experience. Whatever we do is insufficient to show our gratitude, but we are extremely grateful to them. Lukla is a good place to spend the night.
Flight Duration: 30 min. We fly back to Kathmandu in a fixed-wing plane on another wonderful morning journey. It's difficult to say a sincere goodbye to the gorgeous mountains after so many days of wonderful memories among them, but we must. After so many days of amazing and fresh mountain air, we finally arrive at Kathmandu airport to breathe the city air. We are taken to our hotel and left to enjoy and rest on our own. Overnight stay in a hotel
We will walk around the local town in Kathmandu today to experience the historical, cultural, and spiritual affluence, to unravel the social and historical mysteries, and to view the artistic Kathmandu Sightseeing Tour to capture the snaps of the centuries-old monuments and historical crafts in Kathmandu city. We visit Ason's local market, Indrachowk's glass beads market, New Road's oldest supermarket, Kilagal, and the Hidden Stupa, among other places. We next proceed to Kathmandu Durbar Square on foot. The visit to the temple of the living goddess "Kumari" is the most unusual experience in the square. The walking tour of Durbar Square will be a beautiful blend of culture, history, art, architecture, and traditional values in the capital city Kathmandu.
