The whole trek is covered around 14 days for those trekkers having good physical health, normal hiking/trekking experience and who can walk up to 6-7 hours per day without any difficulties. Laying foundation for our trek, we fly from Kathmandu to Lukla (2827 m). The most scenic and the most dangerous flight you will ever have. After landing up in Lukla airport, you will be introduced with our porter (We will hire guide in Kathmandu only) and then commence trek to Phakding. The next day, you will ascend through the Dudh Koshi valley to the Sherpa Settlement of Namche Bazaar, an official capital of Sherpas. This is a small town in east part of Everest region where you can enjoy the local Yak cheese. In this town, we will stay for two nights to give a proper acclimatization to our body since many of the trekkers suffer from heath issues related to high altitude. Then our trail respectively ascend to Tyangboche walking through the lovely forest and then to Dingboche. Enroute, you will be rewarded with the views of Everest soaring behind Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama-Dablam, Kangtega and Tawache peaks. Our second rest day will be in Dingboche, where we can have a short hike up to Chukung and then descend down to Dingboche for overnight stay. Crossing over the suspension bridge, passing through Lobuche, several Buddhist monasteries and Sherpa villages, you will finally reach to the Base camp. You can spend a night over the camp in a tent or continue your trek towards Gorakshep. As you walk towards the higher altitude, you will feel that the air is getting thinner and thinner. The trail now descends from Kalapatthar, Pheriche & Phortse. From Phortse, you will retrace your footsteps back to Namche bazaar, Phakding and finally to Lukla. Spending an overnight into Lukla, you will fly to Kathmandu the next day.

It was once an important trading centre on the route from Tibet to Nepal but has now been largely given over to catering for the needs of trekkers.

Our trail takes us first over the Dudh Koshi River via a long suspension bridge, and then through a beautiful pine forest to Monjo, about two hours away. Soon thereafter, we will approach the entrance to Sagarmatha National Park for a brief permit check and then descend to Dudh Koshi River (spotting Mani stones along the way!) en route to Jorsale. Lunch will be served here, and then it’s uphill to Namche. Our path along the riverbank is flanked by two crossings, one of which is the Hillary Suspension Bridge.

On the following day, we will take a well-deserved rest to acclimatize, which gives the opportunity to explore some of the less developed and more traditional villages in the area. There’s an optional 2 hour hike to Everest View Point, an uphill walk that will help speed acclimatization. You can also check out the Sherpa museum for an overview of the Sherpa culture and history of mountaineering. On Saturdays, the Hatt Bazaar is open for trading and an intimate look at the locals’ marketplace. It is part of the larger Namche Bazaar, a shopping hub filled with all manner of trekking and mountaineering clothing and equipment. Easier options for passing the acclimatization day can be found by visiting the twin Sherpa villages of Khumjung and Khunde, which are about a 2 hour walk above Namche. While in Khunde, visit the hospital, which was established and funded by Sir Edmund Hillary’s Himalayan Trust. Khumjung monastery is interesting as being the store place of one of the alleged Yeti scalps that are to be found in the region. Having lunch in Everest view hotel and enjoy with gorgeous view of Mt. Everest and Amadablam is other attractions having one day free in Namche Bazaar.

The most common night stop after Namche is at the top of a steep climb from the Imja Khola, at Tengboche. Continuing our walk, a short drop takes us to the riverside, then it’s across the river upwards through the forest pass. Brace your legs for a continual uphill trek at this point, alternating between a gradual grade and some seriously steep ground. Tengboche is known as one of the most beautiful places in the Everest region. Its views, which include Ama Dablam, are legendary. We’ll stop in on the Tengboche monastery, which is one of the largest in Khumbu. Nourish your spirit with a guided tour of the monastery grounds, followed by chanting and prayer with the resident Buddhist monks. This is the site of one of the most significant Buddhist Monastery in Solukhumbu Region and a visit is well recommended.

Day 05: Trek Tyangboche / Dingboche (4410 m.) approx. 5 hrs walk.
After breakfast, we start our trek down to Dingboche village through the rhododendron forest and crossing the bridge over the raging Imja Khola. We’ll pass the valley wall and then traverse the plains to Pangboche village, the biggest settlement of Sherpas in the region. Enjoy a great opportunity to observe a typical Sherpa village and have lunch with the locals. The intrepid can brave a brief hike to the Pangboche monastery, one of the oldest in the area. Our afternoon trek will be a difficult one, as the landscape gives way to dry; deserted mountains and we hike towards Dingboche. Dingboche is also the gateway to Chukung Village and Island peak.

The view is awesome as the mountain like Thamserku, Khangtega, Taboche, Cholache as well as Mt. Amadablam are shinning in front of our eyes.

The next part of our adventure brings over craggy mountain terrain to Lobuche, a small settlement with amazing views of Mt. Lobuche, Mt. Pumari and the Nuptse.

Mt. Everest (Top of the World)

Mount Everest is the highest mountain in the world. Its height is 8,848 meters. Its alternate names are Sagarmatha, Qomolangma, and Chomolungma. Mt. Everest lies on the border of Nepal and China, with half of the mountain lying on each side of the borders. Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay first climbed Mt. Everest in 1953, with Hillary taking the photograph of Tenzing Norgay in the summit.

There are several bodies still lying on the upper portions of the mountain above the South Col on the Nepal side and the North East Ridge on the Tibetan side. There are 2 main routes, Southeast and Northeast, for climbing the Mt. Everest. Southeast is most frequently used route because it is generally considered safer and with easier access. Ascent via the southeast ridge begins with a trek to Base Camp at 5,380 meters on the south side of Everest in Nepal. Expedition members usually fly to Lukla (2,860 m.) from Kathmandu and pass through Namche Bazar. Climbers then hike to Everest Base Camp, which usually takes 6 to 8 days, allowing for proper altitude adjustment in order to prevent altitude sickness. Climbing accessories and supplies are carried by yaks, dzopkyos (yak hybrids) and human porters to Everest Base Camp on Khumbu Glacier. In recent years, mountain climbers and explorers have been paying attention on Mt. Everest. It has become many brave people’s dreams to demonstrate their courage and skills by climbing onto the world’s highest peak. The weather is comparatively mild and steady with less rain or snow early March to late May, and again so from early September to late October. These are the two best seasons for tourists and mountain climbers.

Does Yeti Still Exist?

Yeti is an ape-like cryptic taller than an average human that is said to inhabit the Himalayan region of Nepal and Tibet. While the greater scientific community largely discounts claims of the Yeti or abominable snowman`s existence, the extent of myth, legends, and accounts of Yeti abound across the Himalaya along the Tibetan border. Many people trust that Yeti is actually the Himalayan Brown Bear, which stands upright and walk like a human. Others recommend that Yeti is really the large Langur Monkey that can be found at higher altitudes. Some say that Yetis are really the holy men from Tibet or India living mendicant lives naked in the snow and are mistaken as wild forest men. Skepticism and speculation aside, there have been many reported finding by locals and climbers alike, and there is a strong history surrounding their existence.

Tales surrounding the yeti abound in villages across the Great Himalaya Trail. Some Sherpa even tell tales of wars with Yeti when they first came down from the mountains to stay in Nepal. They are often referred to as wild forest dwellers and occasionally as demon, plague villagers by stealing or destroying their crops. Paintings and depiction of yetis can be found in different monasteries, and the Khumjung monastery in Everest region is in possession of what lamas believe to be the scalp of a yeti.

Tengboche Monastery

It is a Tibetan Buddhist monastery of the Sherpa community situated at 3,867 m. The monastery is the largest Gompa in the Khumbu region of Nepal. It was built in 1916 by Lama Guru with strong links to its mother monastery known as Rongbuk Monastery located in Tibet. It was destroyed by an earthquake in 1934 and was consequently rebuilt. In 1989, it was destroyed again by a fire and then rebuilt with the help of volunteers and international support.
Tengboche is famous because of its spectacular and distinctive location. It lies on the main route to the Everest Base Camp of Mt. Everest and offers the first clear views of the highest mountain in the world. Tengboche became famous to the world after Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzin Norgay Sherpa made the first ascent of Mt. Everest in 1953. A lot has been changed since those days when Tengboche was remote and inaccessible. Today more than 30,000 people come ever year to enjoy the beauty of Tengboche and splendor of the mountains.
