    Half day sightseeing of Kathmandu valley. Visit Pashupatinath Temple and Soyambhunath Stupa. Rest of the time for trek preparation.

      Early morning we fly to Lukla from Kathmandu.After 30 minutes scenic flight, arrive in Lukla. Having first breakfast in the mountain,we start our trekking to Phakding village. After the lunch, we look around the village. Overnight at Hotel.

        After breakfast we will continue our trek following Dudhkoshi river. We cross it twice to reach Monjo village by small suspension bridge which is also the entrance gate of the Sagarmatha National Park. After descend walk of about 20 minutes we reach to Jorsalle village, the last village till Namche Bazaar.After Jorsalle village, follow the Dudhkoshi river with gradual walk for half an hour and again crossing the suspension bridge, we walk all the way up to Namche Bazaar for couple hour, which is well known as the capital of Khumbu region.

          Today is our rest day for the acclimatization. After the breakfast, we make short excursion around Namche Bazaar, visiting Sagarmatha national park head quarter and Everest view hotel for the panoramic view of many white peaks.

            Trek to Thame (3820m) around 4-5 hrs from Namche.Thame Valley is a less-travelled destination in Solu Khumbu. It is remote and serene.Trek from west of Namche to the valley of the Bhote Kosi to the secluded village of Thame (3750m),set among alpine meadows beneath the mountain wall of Kongde Ri.Trails run west towards Tesi Lapcha,the 5755m pass leading to the Rolwaling Valley.

              Trek from Thame to Taranga crossing the Lungden.(about 5-6 hrs)

                Trek straight up from Lungden to Renjo La.Gokyo Valley Via Renjo Pass Trek is certainly one of the most stunning mountain areas on earth.Through small yak-grazing settlements, we reach the Gokyo lakes.We stay here to savor the incredible scenery, including magnificent views of Everest (8848m), Makalu, Cho Oyo (8153m) and Lhotse (8511m), to name but a few.

                  Climbing to the top of Gokyo Ri is demanding as it is steep and takes about 3 to 4 hours to reach the top. But the scenery of Gokyo village, on the edge of third lake overlooked by Cholatse and the broad Nogzumpa Glacier, is magnificent. We are surrounded by panoramic mountains like Kusum Kanguru, Thamserku, Kangtega, Taboche, Cholatse, Makalu, Lhotse, Nuptse, Everest, Changtse, and Pumori. The sight of sunrays kissing Everest which towers over all the surrounding peaks is astounding. We can see a lot more from here - the spot is called Scoundrel's Viewpoint. From the northern part of the 5th lake we see the Cho Oyu base camp and Ngazumpa Glacier which is the biggest glacier the world. We walk back to Gokyo to spend the night.

                    We trek through the Ngazumpa Glacier to the mountain on the other side. Next, traverse along the edge of that mountain and then meander into Thagnak (Dragnag). It will be a short hike today with an afternoon of rest which will prepare us for long hiking days and elevation gain to come.

                      Today is going to be one of the toughest days of the trip. The Cho La pass is not itself difficult, but it is steep and involves a glacier traverse on the eastern side. We need to be careful as the trail is vertical and the rocks glazed by ice may cause trouble by making the trail slippery.  The trail from Phedi climbs through a ravine and a rocky trail. While trekking through the side of a frozen lake, we reach at the top of the pass decorated with prayer flags. The pyramidal Ama Dablam presides over a range of mountains on the south even as Cholatse soars to the west and Lobuche East and Baruntse rises sharply to our right. We need to pass through some crevasses before we reach Dzongla Village. The village provides great views of Cholatse, Ama Dablam, Lobuche mountains along with the Pheriche Village far below.

                        This will be a very short trek so we have a lot time to relax and enjoy the beauty that surrounds us. We climb down from Dzongla and walk through a grassy trail while enjoying the view of Lobuche Peak. The trail curves through the wide river bed before reaching Lobuche. We can spend the rest of day taking a rest which will help us prepare for the next day’s long trek. One will be astonished by the huge and uninterrupted views of Everest’s great North Face. Overnight in Lobuche.

                          We take the trail to Everest Base Camp through the once vast Gorak Shep Lake. Continuing straight ahead, we come across the Indian army mountaineers' memorials. The path from here can be misleading; hence, it is important that we follow our lead Sherpa diligently. The walk is strenuous due to thin air in the high altitude. We pass through rocky dunes, moraine and streams before reaching the Everest Base Camp. Upon reaching the Everest Base Camp, we see tents of mountaineers that stand out in bright colors against the monotony of gray surroundings (especially in the spring). Nuptse, Khumbuste and Pumori are the mountains we can view from the base camp. We get back to Gorak Shep for a good night's rest. Overnight in Gorak Shep.

                            We prepare for an early morning departure, amid pre-dawn darkness and cold temperatures (-10 to -14 C). Plus, there is always the potential for chilly winds which are quite common. Familiar peaks such as Lingtren, Khumbutse, and Changtse tower to the east even as Everest begins to reveal itself. But, it is upon reaching Kala Patthar that we get to see 360-degree up-close and formidable views of Mt. Everest. We take pictures, enjoy the magnificent mountain panorama, and then return back to Lobuche for a good night's rest. Overnight in Lobuche.

                              Today you are walking through descends trail then ascends to Kongma La Pass (5535m) then after descends and level walk to Chhukhung (4730m). The trail is very narrows with rocky and difficulty trail suit for adventures lovers. Between Lobuche to Chhukung there is a not teahouse facility so you need to take a pack Lunch and enough drinking waters. After long hard walk then finally you reach at Chhukung (4730m). Overnight at teahouse

                                Chukkang is just a little bit far from the Island Peak Base Camp. We eat breakfast in the morning and start our trek to the Island Peak Base Camp. Island Peak Base Camp (6189 m) is a gigantic Peak and this Peak is not designed for all the Peak Climbers as it is very difficult to climb especially because of its high altitude. Many trekkers also suffer from high altitude sickness. You can also see Glacier La ke from the Island Peak Base Camp. Overnight stay in a tented camp.

                                  The next day, we will hike further up to High Camp from the Island Peak Base Camp. You will be walking for 4 hours and be ready for the High Camp and put together preparation for the next day so that you can get to the summit next day. Overnight stay at tented camp. 

                                    It is the important one in the itinerary as you will scale the summit from where you can view Pumori(7161m), Lhotse (8516m), Makalu (8463m), Lobuche (6145m), Cho Oyu ( 8201m). These are the most fantastic views that you can see from the summit. Again after the trek we will go back over to Base Camp. Overnight stay at a tented camp.

                                      This day is reserve day in case if the summit trek is cancelled on the previous day.

                                        we will resume our downhill trek from the Island Peal. Trek to Pangboche will take around 4 hours. Overnight stay at a guest house. 

                                          Trek down to the Khumjung Valley.The views of Everest and Ama Dablam are excellent from this part of the trek. We pass the small settlement of Sanasa from where the trail drops towards Phunki Thanga (3250m). From here  we pass through forests and around mani stones as it follows the side of a hill to the saddle on whichh the monestary of Tengboche sits at 3870m. The view from here is rightly deemed to be one of the worlds most magnificent. Kwangde (6187m), Tawachee (6542m), Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse (8501m), Ama Dablan, Kantega and Thamserku provide an inspiring panorama of Himalayan giants. We will spend the night in Tengboche village (5 hrs).

                                            After making a return to Namche, we complete our circular route. With completion of the circular route we continue descending the main Everest trail. Before descending steeply to the river, we have few hours time to explore the Namche Bazzar. We enjoying our walk make a steady move from Dudh Kosi to Jorsale.

                                              Retracing our steps along the trail above the Dudh Kosi , we rise up to Lukla, we arrive to Lukla for Lunch.
