Everest Base Camp and Renjo-La Pass Trekking


Maximum Altitude: 5545 meters

Duration of Trek: 17 days mountain lodge

Grade: Medium to Hard  


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

We head north initially upward the Dudh Kosi valley to Namche Bazaar, the major trading hub of the region. From Namche the trail follows the Imja Khola and 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 and climbs gradually up the Imja Khola and 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. 

It takes further five days retracing to Lukla and fly back to Kathmandu. An attainable trek for anyone who is reasonably fit, with the itinerary set to minimize any effects of altitude.
