Located in the eastern region of Nepal, the Everest region is the land of legendary Sherpas. Embark on an unforgettable journey that is full of experiences. Visit the villages of amiable locals. Watch the lamas/priests chanting hymns in monasteries. Feel the vibe of spiritual awakening and find peace at heart and mind in the serene aura so close to Himalaya.

Everest Kalapathar trekking route takes you through the Sagarmatha National Park that is rich in rare Himalayan herbs. Feel the thrill as Himalayan beasts pass from so close distance.

Best Time for Everest Kalapatthar Trekking

Nepal has two best trekking seasons in a year - spring (March-May) and Autumn (September - November). Apart from these months, Nepal experiences a few extreme weather conditions, which makes trekking more challenging. The months from December to February are extremely cold and June to August are rainy. 

Although it is possible to trek during these winter and summer months, the weather condition will be pretty challenging. It is quite an uncomfortable situation to trek in extreme weather conditions.

Day 1 : Arrival in Kathmandu (1400m)

He will transfer you to the hotel where you can find an easy time to relax after checking in. We will meet you in the evening at the hotel to talk about the trip in details. Any questions you may have regarding your trip will be discussed so that you are well-prepared for the trip.

Day 2 : Fly to Lukla and trek to Phakding (2,660m) - B.L.D

We have an early morning flight to Lukla today. So, we drive to the airport for the exciting Himalayan flight to the gateway to the Everest region. A wonderful flight on a small airplane takes us to the beautiful town of Lukla with the views of stunning mountains.
After landing at Lukla, we meet our whole trekking crew and get ready to walk for the day. It is an easy start of the walk of the adventure trek to the Everest Base Camp. We are going to trek to Phakding village on the bank of the Dudh Koshi River. Around four hours of trek, today introduces us to the trail, surroundings, nature, and the views of mountains in the Everest region. The atmosphere of our overnight site, Phakding, feels amazing on the bank of the gushing river.

Day 3 : Trek to Namche Bazaar (3,440m) - B.L.D

The second day of the walk today takes us to the beautiful and famous Sherpa town of Namche Bazar at the elevation of 3,440 meters above sea level. Almost all uphill walk for the day takes us past beautiful natural surroundings of nature and the view of mountains. As we enter the Sagarmatha National Park today, we will also walk over several suspension bridges over the gushing river.
Finally, we reach Namche Bazar after the walk of around six hours. The view of the mountains and wonderful surroundings of Namche helps us relax and settle. We take it easy to acclimatize well at the changing climatic situation and elevation.

Day 4 : Acclimatization Day in Namche Bazaar - B.L.D

We have an extra day stopover at Namche today that will help us acclimatize well before we head further higher. Namche has beautiful places in the surroundings where we can go for day hiking and exploration instead of staying idle at the lodge and bazaar. The hiking exploration for the day will also help us get better acclimatized and we become ready to trek to the higher elevation.

Day 5 : Trek to Deboche (3720m) - B.L.D

As we are getting used to with the thinning air of the higher elevation, we prepare to trek to the next place. Our walk for the day in the region takes us to Tengboche village that is famous for its beautiful monastery and the view of mountains like Ama Dablam it provides. Around seven hours of the walk takes us up and down the mountains and through stream and nature with a view to the overnight destination - Debuche.
Once we reach Debuche, we will have time to explore the surroundings after settling into the lodge.

Day 6 : Trek to Dingboche (4,410m) - B.L.D

We continue further higher on our trek. The trek today takes us to Dingboche via Pangboche village. When we reach the overnight destination today, we will already be at the elevation of 4,410 meters above sea level. Another beautiful day of trekking through the cultural village and natural surroundings has so many beautiful things to offer. From lush nature to changing the landscape to the wonderful culture and lifestyle of the Sherpa people living in the region is simply awesome.

Day 7 : Acclimatization in Dingboche (4,410m) - B.L.D

It is time to take another acclimatization day before we trek further higher towards the base camp of the highest mountain in the world. We again go, like at Namche, for hiking exploration to the surrounding destinations. The exploration today will bring us spectacular views of the mountains and surrounding landscapes. We will spend half of our day hiking and the latter half exploring and relaxing at Dingboche.

Day 8 : Trek to Lobuche (4,910m) - B.L.D

Time to trek to another destination! We walk through glacial path on the famous Khumbu glacier today towards Lobuche as our destination for the day. The landscape changes drastically and the wilderness grows to a more peaceful and magnificent one. We will walk through the trail that’s filled with huge boulders and moraine. We will certainly feel the oxygen level going thinner and thinner as we trek further higher. Slowly but ultimately, we will make it to Lobuche to stay overnight. The beautiful surroundings of Lobuche help us feel better after we check into the guest house.

Day 9 : Trek to E.B.C (5364m), Return to Gorakshep (5164m) - B.L.D

Finally, the most exciting day of the trip has arrived. We are going to be at the base camp of Mt. Everest and enjoy the blissful moments there. But before that, we surely need to walk for the day. We will trek towards Gorakshep that is our overnight site for the day and check into a lodge before heading to the base camp. The walk to the Everest base camp starts after relishing our lunch at the highest overnight site for the trip.
Eventually the famous Everest Base Camp is right there where we will stand. We enjoy the overwhelmingly magnificent surroundings of the base camp and spend some beautiful moments there. Later, we need to trek back to Gorakshep to stay overnight. The day has brought us to the base camp of the highest mountain in the world.

Day 10 : Trek to Kala Pathar (5545m), Back to Pheriche (4250m) - B.L.D

Although every day of the adventure trek to the Everest base camp is exciting, we are due another incredibly exciting moment of the trip. The early morning hiking trip to the Kalapatthar viewpoint is what we are looking forward to early in the morning. Our early morning effort to hike to the highest elevation of the trek is worth going for. The panoramic view of the Mt. Everest and other mountains in the surroundings is simply breathtaking. We will also get to enjoy a joyous sunrise experience over the mountains.
Later, we hike back down to Gorakshep and trek further down to Pheriche. Pheriche is a famous overnight stop for trekkers. We will enjoy the beautiful surroundings once we check into a lodge.

Day 11 : Trek to Phortse (3750m) - B.L.D

The trek today takes us to Phortse village for the overnights stay today. It is one of the beautiful Sherpa villages in the region. 

Day 12 : Trek to Namche (3,440m) - B.L.D

Our walking journey in the Everest region continues back towards Namche bazar today. The peaceful natural surroundings and decreasing elevation make us feel better and easier.

Day 13 : Trek to Lukla (2,860m) - B.L.D

This is the last day of the trek and we traverse the trail all the way to Lukla from Namche. Once we reach Lukla and check into the lodge, we will take easy time to explore and wander around the place. It has been an amazing adventure to the Everest base camp and thanks to the whole team who made the adventure safe and an awesome experience. We befriended people, mountains, nature and breathtaking surroundings that have left an incredible impression and experience.
