Everest Base Camp Trek (Lukla to Lukla)

Maximum Altitude: 5545 meters

Duration of Trek: 14 days mountain lodge

Grade: Medium & Hard 

The trek commences with an early flight from Kathmandu to the Lukla in the heart of the Khumbu Region, the rest of the day is an easy one of around three hours to our first overnight at Phakding. 

We head north initially up the Dudh Kosi valley to Namche Bazaar; the major trading hub of the region. From Namche the trail follows the Imja Khola, on route there are some spectacular views of the Khumbu Himal, Thamserku and Kantega with Amadablam in the distance, dominating the skyline ahead are Everest and Lhotse.

The trail ascends, climbing gradually up the Imja Khola eventually emerging above the tree line before Dingboche. Dingboche to Kalapatthar takes a further two days via the Everest glacier for a truly "hands on" experience of Mt. Everest, Nuptse and Lhotse which tower above. 

A further five days are taken retracing to Lukla and the flight back to Kathmandu. An attainable trek for anyone who is reasonably fit with the itinerary set to minimize any affects of altitude.
