Join the welcome dinner with live Nepalese cultural program hosted by Makalu adventures.
Fly to Tumlingtar which is an hour flight. Here your trekking crew will meet you and a bit of briefing about the trail, then start walking up to Khadbari (1,040 m). Have lunch break in the shade of Kabra Trees. We walk north towards Khandbari, then begin walking on a plateau for around 45 minutes after the trails climbing gradually to Khandbari. We camp above the village.
After breakfast walk through many small picturesque villages most of the time the walk is uphill and you will be walking through bamboo groves and a rhododendron forest. Our camp is at Chichela a small settlement of Gurungs at 1,830m.
Today we start walking with views of snow capped peaks in the distance. Fantastic views of Makalu and its surrounding peak. Walk on a striaght path, with little ups and downs, through forest to have lunch at about 2 hrs and then start descending to reach Num. Camp.
The trail today descends steeply from Num through the Cornfield of Lumbang. The country is particularly rocky; tiny terraces planted with corn and barley, then we have tough steep climb to Sedua. Camp
The trail crosses meadows and several streams, then climbs to the Sherpa village of Tashi Gaon, the last permanent settlement in the valley. Camp
A very hard day of the trek as the trail goes up real steep. We walk through the sparse forests along the ridge over a hillock and descend a bit to Kauma at 3,470 m. Camp
Today is a rest day as well as acclimatization day.
We again start today with a steep climb then through less steeply rhododendron forests to the top of the ridge. You will have superb views of Chamlang (7,290 m) Peak 6 (6,739 m) and Peak 7 (6,105 m). Then we will have a final descent through a forest of firs and rhododendrons to Mumbuk. Camp
Today the trail descends steep gully with a stream for about 500m. The trail is ill defined, rocky and sloppy mud in places as it leads up the glacial valley. From here you can have a good views of Peak 6. Nhe Kharka is located on a large open grassy plain at an elevation of 3000 m. from here you will have great mountain views. Camp
The trail today turns westward and leaves the rhododendron forests for alpine tundra. There are excellent views of Pyramid Peak (7,168 m), Peak 4 (6,720 m) etc. Sherson is at 4,615 m a bit dangerous day as the altitude gains more than 1,500 m but we don't have a choice because we do not have any suitable camp between Nhe Kharka and Sherson.
Today is a gradual climb to a minor pass about 100 m . From here you will have a magnificent south face views of Makalu also you will be able to see the complete panorama of Everest and Lhotse. Camp
Chhukhung (4,730 m.), lies directly under an incredible rock wall that links Nuptse with Lhotse. From here you will also have magnificent views of Amadablam (6856 m.), probably the most photographed mountain in Nepal.
Follow the main Khumbu Valley down to site of the Himalayan Rescue Association's Trekkers' Aid Post and continue to Dingboche. Camp Overnight.
The trail continues through meadows where yaks graze. In the distance you can glimpse the summit of Everest, girt by the impressive rock walls of Lhotse and Nuptse. Start by passing by a spring, and then continue slightly takes you to Tengboche, the cultural heart of Everest. Camp Overnight.
The trail descends to the right flank of the Dudh Kosi and then leads to the large Sherpa settlement and then ascends to the Namche Bazar.
This day serves as an 'extra' day. If we get across the passes in time then we take our time relaxing in Namche. Otherwise we are already on the trek.
Continue ascend to the small mountain airstrip at Lukla to catch your return flight to Kathmandu. Weather permitting your trekking crew might prepare a farewell treat for you. You would be expected to join in the singing and the dancing! Overnight Camp.
