Fly to Kathmandu

You will book your own flights to Kathmandu, but we meet you at the airport to begin our ‘airport to airport’ service – look out for the Climb High representative!

Kathmandu

Rest day / Sightseeing in Kathmandu.

Fly Kathmandu to Lukla

It’s an early morning start for the famous flight to Lukla 2,840m the gateway to the Khumbu. This is an exciting flight, which should afford a glimpse of Everest in the distance. In Lukla we  meet our trek staff and porters and set off straightaway for our first night’s stop at Phakding. Situated on the banks of the Dudh Kosi, which drains the whole of the Khumbu Region, this small hamlet is on the main trade route through the area and there are a number of clean, well-built lodges where we can spend the night.

Trek to Namche Bazaar

We will continue up the banks of the Dudh Kosi, crossing it twice by small suspension bridges before reaching the village of Monjo where we will enter the Khumbu National Park. We will then cross the confluence of the Dudh Kosi and the Bhote Kosi on a high suspension bridge and climb steeply for about two hours up ‘Namche Hill’ to reach Namche Bazaar 3,440m. This is a prosperous trading town and the capital of the Khumbu Region. Many Tibetans cross the nearby border to trade their wares and the local market is a fascinating spectacle. This is a good place to buy genuine Tibetan artefacts. Just across the valley to the east stand the peaks of Thamserku and Kangtega, both very impressive mountains.

Acclimatisation day at Namche

We will spend two nights in Namche Bazaar. This will allow our bodies to become acclimatised to the altitude of 3,440m (11,300ft). We’ll see local sights and visit the village of Khumjung with its famous bakery.

Namche to Deboche

From Namche, the well-worn Everest trail contours around the side of the valley high above the Dudh Kosi. As we follow the path, we will get our first really good views of the great peaks of the Khumbu: Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and Ama Dablam. Passing by several villages and numerous tea shops, we will cross the Dudh Kosi River and make a steep climb to Thyangboche, home the famous monastery and surely one of the world’s best viewpoints looking up three enormous Himalayan valleys. We drop down to the river and the village of Deboche 3,700m a little further along the trail, where we will stay in a relaxing lodge. In 2005, Climb High undertook a restoration project for the nunnery and provided a new roof and kitchen.

Trek to Dingboche

Shaded by rhododendron trees, the trail crosses an airy suspension bridge just beyond Deboche. An hour’s walking from here will bring us to Pangboche, an excellent viewpoint for Ama Dablam. Contouring up the valley side, we will re-cross the river and turn up the Imja Valley to reach the picturesque farming village of Dingboche 4,410m.

Acclimatisation

Dingboche is a good location for acclimatisation prior to our ascent up the upper section of the Khumbu Valley. While in Dingboche we can attend a seminar about high altitude acclimatisation at the hospital in nearby Pheriche, run by the Himalayan Rescue Association. The walk over to Pheriche and back will also serve as good acclimatisation training and so make the walk doubly worthwhile.

Trek to Lobuche

We will retrace our steps back to Pheriche before continuing along the trail up the broad valley bottom towards Dugla. Ahead of us is the trekking peak of Lobuje East 6,119m, and to our left is the formidable north face of Taweche. After three hours we reach the small collection of lodges at Dugla 4,620m. We might choose to walk up to the Sherpa memorials, from where there are outstanding views of Ama Dablam, Cholatse and Taweche. From Dugla, the trail climbs steeply beside the glacial moraine. After a few hours the track eventually leads to a small cluster of tea houses pleasantly situated at Lobuche 4,940m.
