It is the oldest Sherpa settlement and once served as a commercial route to Tibet and China. The Thame Gompa, a charming monastery situated among the numerous dwellings of Lamas and laypeople, lies about 150 meters above the town.(Stay The Night At A Tea House With Full Board)

Day 6: A 6-7-hour trek from Thame to Lungdeng (4600m)

From Thame, the trail heads north to Thame Teng, then continues via a number of tiny settlements including Chanakya and Taranga, crosses a yak pasture to get to Marlung hamlet, and continues for almost 4 hours on a deserted slope to get to Lungdeng. The Ngazumpa glacier, the largest glacier in the world, may be seen clearly from here.(Stay The Night At A Tea House With Full Board)

Day 07: Trek Lungdeng to Renjo- La (5465m) to Gokyo Lake (4800m) 8-9 hrs

It's a harder day today! Due to the height and the nature of the walking, crossing the Renjo La will be one of the more challenging days of the journey. The likelihood of ideal conditions is quite good because the spring months of March through May and September through November typically provide bright skies. When you reach the peak of Renjola, the views are breathtaking. The remainder of the journey to Gokyo involves a glacial walk, sometimes requiring careful awakening; but, once there, the entire journey is simple to descend. (Stay the night at a tea house with full board).

Day 8: A pleasant and leisurely day in Gokyo (4800m)

You would want to spend a calm day at Gokyo after the Renjo-la. You can choose to relax in Gokyo or take the opportunity to hike up to the fifth lake, passing a fourth lake, and take in the scenery. This is a fantastic location and a chance to see Cho-Oyu and Mt. Everest in their entirety. You can wander back to the hotel after viewing the northern portion of Cho-Oyu Base Camp and the largest glacier in the entire globe, Ngazumpa Glacier. (Stay the night at a tea house with full board)

Day 09: Hike to Gokyo RI (5330m), and trek to Thangnak (4750m), 7-8 hrs

We hike up to Gokyo Ri (5496 m) early this morning for spectacular views of the entire mountain range, from the Nangpa La to Makalu and beyond, including four of the world's highest peaks: Cho Oyu (8168 m), Everest (8848 m), Lhotse (8526 m), and Makalu (8496 m). These will be life-changing memories that we will cherish at the summit. To reach the summit and return to Gokyo for breakfast, it takes around two hours. We make our way past the second lake and across the glacier as we make our way down to Thangnak for the night. (Stay the night at a tea house with full board)

Day 10: Trek Thangnak to Cho-la Pass (5367m) to Dzongla (4,850m) 5-6 hrs

Due to the high pass, the day is one of the toughest days to traverse the Cho-la. Although the pass is not challenging, it is steep and requires crossing a glacier on the eastern side. After crossing the Cho-la, we overnight in Dzongla. Enjoy the breathtaking vista from up high. (Stay the night at a tea house with full board)

Day 11: Trek Dzongla to Gorakshep (5,160m) a 5–6-hour walk

We carry on our hike while enjoying views of Kalapathar and Pumori along the glacier's moraine. While strolling adjacent to the Gorekshep, you have a good possibility of seeing Mount Nuptse from the best angle. The Gorakshep trail is windy and rocky, but it provides a good perspective of Pumori as well as lovely mountain views of the Everest Base Camp and glacier. At the greater elevation of Gorakshep, we enjoy the night. (Stay the night at a tea house with full board)

Day 12: Trek from Gorakshep to EBC (5,357m), then return the next day or overnight.

We get ready for our trip to the intended location after breakfast at Gorekshep, and we keep walking until we reach the Khumbu Icefall and Everest Base Camp. Due to the high altitude and thin air, the walk is highly taxing; it crosses stony dunes, moraines, and streams before arriving at base camp. During the busiest time of the year for expeditions, Everest Base Camp is busier with increased noise. Spend some time here and then travel back to Gorekshep. (Stay the night at a tea house with full board)

Day 13: Hiking Gorekshep to Kalapattar (5545m) to Gorekshep to Lobuche

(4910m) 6-7 hrsEarly in the morning, we resume our ascent to the renowned viewpoint Kalapatthar (5545m). You will be pleased when you reach the summit since that is the moment you have been hoping for throughout the entire trek. The view of Everest from Kalapathar, a little rocky peak on Mt. Pumori's southwest ridge, is unimaginably beautiful. In addition, there is a lot of beautiful landscape and the Everest Base Camp, which is located below on the Khumbu glacier moraine. After taking in the expansive vistas, wander back to Gorakshep for breakfast before continuing on to Lobuche.

Day 14: Trek Lobuche to Kongma La (5535m) to Chhukung (4730m) 8-9 hrs

After breakfast, the walk to Kongma La Base Camp (5,000 meters), via the Khumbu Glacier, continues downward to the Kongma pass, which is the most challenging ascent of the day. When we arrive to the Kongma La, we discover a cairn marked with prayer flags. After that, we proceed on a routine hike to Chhukung through the Imja Khola valley. (Stay the night at a tea house with full board)

Day 15: Trek Chhukung to Tyangboche (3,867m) 4-5 hrs

Today's hike will be simple as it descends to a lower elevation via Dingboche; the trip to Tyangboche is enjoyable. Following the creek downhill into Tyangboche and Pangboche settlement after the bridge, our course declines. One of the most picturesque locations in the Himalayas is Tyangboche. The massive monastery, a vast field with camping spots, teahouses, and lodges, and the tall, magnificent, and stunning peak Ama Dablam immediately catch your attention. Dinner and a stay at a guesthouse are included.

Day 16: Trek Tyangboche to Monjo (2680m) 5-6 hrs

Treks to Phunkethanga, a small community with a few tea houses, after breakfast. From here, the track descends steeply down a road through a forest filled with wonderful memories. After passing a small wooden bridge over the Dudh Koshi River, continue trekking to a steep climb up to Sanasa, where you can continue hiking to Namche Bazaar and Monjo. (Stay the night at a tea house with full board)

Day 17: Trek Manjo to Lukla (2800m) 4-5 hrs

The final day of our fantastic trek will be one of the good treks to Lukla, where you may stroll gently and appreciate the verdant surroundings at your own pace. With the exception of a few brief ascents, the only significant climb will be just before Lukla, which will take about 45 minutes from Chop's Plung or from the large, old oak tree. Once in Lukla, get ready for a memorable farewell celebration with the other Sherpa crew members, porters, and trekkers. (Stay the night at a tea house with full board)

Day 18: Fly back Lukla to Kathmandu

The flight time to Kathmandu is scheduled for the morning normally because of the wind in the afternoon, sometime the flight time can be delayed due to bad weather and other reason beyond our command. Anyway, we will fly back to Kathmandu and your guide will transfer to the hotel. You may have time to relax after a long journey and take back your breath and rest at your hotel after ending your wonderful Himalayan trip with us. (Overnight at deluxe hotel on BB basis)

Day 19: Farewell Friend (Final departure to your onward destination)

The Final Day Of This Trip In Nepal Is Today. As Your Journey In Nepal Comes To An End Today, You Are Bidding Goodbye To The Himalayas.

Mountain Guide Treks Will Send A Representative To Pick You Up At The Airport Around Three Hours Prior To The Flight's Planned Departure Time.

Please take note that inclement weather frequently causes the Kathmandu-Lukla-Kathmandu flight

Please take note that inclement weather frequently causes the Kathmandu-Lukla-Kathmandu flight to be delayed by a few hours or perhaps canceled for one, two, or more days. Even in the most favorable seasons, these situations can arise. As a result, in such circumstances, you must be ready for lengthy waits at the airports in Kathmandu and Lukla, as this may occur at the beginning or finish of the trek, or possibly both! We go above and beyond to prevent such delays and book you on the subsequent flight. Nevertheless, we advise you to be ready for unforeseen cancellations or delays and, if at all feasible, to go with a few extra buffer days (1-2 days) at the conclusion of the trip to account for them. If it is possible and our clients desire it, we can also arrange a helicopter rescue in such circumstances. You are free to choose an alternate adventure, such as a trek in the Annapurna, Langtang, or any other regions, in the event that the flight delay or cancellation occurs at the beginning of the trip and lasts so long that it disrupts your onward travel itinerary. You are welcome to wait in Kathmandu for however many days it takes to book a flight to Lukla if you are not interested in the alternative trip and would rather to wait for the trip.
