Travel to Nepal and head to the Himalayan hills to get the full picture of Everest. Fly to Lukla then enjoy a four-day trek, staying in teahouses in the village of Phakding, the market town of Namche Bazaar and the small settlement of Monjo. Along the way, cross fast flowing rivers, climb to the highest hotel in the world and take in close up views of the mountain and the surrounding Himalayas. ALTERNATE ITINERARY: In case of weather conditions leading to cancellations or delays in flights, this trip will operate on an alternate itinerary. Please see Day 1 of the itinerary for more details.

Highlights
  • This is a great introduction to Everest: a shorter trek that still allows for stunning views of the world's highest mountain.
  • The flight into Lukla provides unparalleled views of the Himalaya and, if you're lucky, you may just spot Everest.
  • Stay in remote, authentic tea houses. The accommodation may be spartan, but the scenery is beautiful and the food delicious.
  • Enjoy walking along the famous route to Everest Base Camp and spend a night at altitude in Namche Bazaar (3440 metres).

Day 1 Kathmandu/Lukla to Phakding trek (2610m)
Namaste! Welcome to Nepal. Please meet at our Kathmandu office listed in the trip notes the day prior to departure at 5pm for a pre departure meeting. At this meeting, the leader will reconfirm the flight times from Kathmandu to Lukla which are usually around 6.15am. This will require you to meet the leader 4.45am at your hotel on day 1. If you arrive after 5pm on the day prior to departure, please contact us for a briefing on: +977 98412 31506 or +977 98510 68827 Fly (approx. 45 min) to Lukla (2840m), the gateway of Everest region. If the weather is good, the views of the Himalayas from the small plane are spectacular! After a short safety briefing, we gear up and commence our trek. Today is a fairly gentle introduction, following the milk-white Dudh Kosi River approximately three-hours to the small village of Phakding (2610m). ALTERNATIVE ITINERARY DUE TO FLIGHT CANCELLATIONS: Weather conditions in the Himalayas can change rapidly, which frequently results in the need for changes to be made to our intended itineraries. Flights throughout Nepal, particularly in high mountain areas, can be delayed or cancelled due to poor weather conditions. Flights between Kathmandu and Lukla are particularly prone to these delays which has the potential to vary the itinerary of all departures in the Everest region. Our contingency plans in case of bad weather preventing the fixed wing aircraft flight from Kathmandu to Lukla are as follows: Day 1 - We will attempt to board our booked fixed wing flight as per the itinerary. If this flight is cancelled but helicopters are available and permitted to fly to Lukla we will use our best endeavours to charter a helicopter to transport you. Travellers will need to use their emergency fund to cover the cost of this chartered helicopter. The exact cost will depend on how many travellers are in your group and could be up to US$500. If we reach Lukla on Day 1 by either fixed wing aircraft or helicopter we will then continue on our trek, with adjustments made depending on arrival time and weather conditions. Day 2 - If no flights (either plane or helicopter) are possible on the morning of Day 2, then we will follow an a trekking itinerary that includes Sundarijal, Chisapani, Nagarkot & Bhaktapur. A scenic Everest mountain flight will be included on Day 5, weather permitting. We also advise allowing a few extra days in Kathmandu at the end of your trip should your return flights from Lukla be delayed due to weather conditions. ALTITUDE SICKNESS: Parts of your trip go above 2800 metres / 9200 feet where it is common for travellers to experience some adverse health effects due to the altitude - regardless of your age, gender and fitness. It even happened to Sir Edmund Hillary! Before your trip: Some pre-existing medical conditions are known to severely worsen at high altitude and be difficult to adequately treat on the ground, leading to more serious consequences. It is imperative that you discuss your pre-existing medical condition/s with your doctor. We understand certain medications are reported to aid acclimatising to high altitude. Please discuss these options with your doctor. During your trip: While our leaders have basic first aid training and are aware of the closest medical facilities, it is very important that you are aware of the cause and effects of travelling at altitude, monitor your health and seek assistance accordingly. Please read the following document carefully and, during your trip, utilise the table on the back daily to record your own perspective of your general health and any symptoms you may experience: http://d3oxn90f3yphmd.cloudfront.net/sites/default/files/file_attach/52735_product_altitude-sickness.pdf

Day 2 Phakding to Namche Bazaar trek (3440m)
We trek to Namche - the trek up to the half-way point Jorsale is relatively undemanding, crossing Dudh Koshi river several times. The later half involves walking right down to the river banks for a while before the challenging uphill climb all the way to the administrative headquarters and biggest settlement of the Everest region (approx. 6hrs, 9 kms). Weather permitting, the first view of Everest is possible an hour or so from the approach point to Namche. We sleep overnight in Namche (3440m)

Day 3 Namche Bazaar to Monjo trek (2840m)
Fortify yourself with a good breakfast for the steep 1.5hr climb for an unobstructed close-up view of Everest (weather dependent!) and the surrounding peaks. Return via the now-derelict Syangboche airstrip past Namche Bazaar mostly downhill to the tiny settlement of Monjo (approx. 4 hrs) (2840m).

Day 4 Monjo to Lukla trek (2840m)
Retrace the route from your earlier part of your trek to Lukla (approx. 4 hrs) (2840m)

Day 5 Kathmandu
This morning we take a short early morning flight back to Kathmandu (approx 45 minutes) where our trip concludes. You will be transferred back to central Kathmandu and dropped off at your hotel, but no accommodation is included tonight.

You will have the option to book your own flights independently with the operator.

Touring with Intrepid Travel

Intrepid was started by two friends from Melbourne, Australia, in 1988 after embarking on a trip through the wilds of Africa in a modified ex-council truck, crammed with friends, supplies, a handful of aviator sunglasses and a case or two of beer. Could this type of travel be something others would be interested in? The answer was a resounding yes and today Intrepid send 100,000 travellers across the globe each year with the help of a staff of 1,000.

After three decades, founders Darrell and Manch, feel they know what travellers want. They get that it’s a big decision to fly across the world to wander the souks of Marrakech or enjoy a dreamy Angkor sunrise. They understand that you’re looking for a balance of inclusions and free time, a mix of classic highlights and local secrets you won’t find on Google. And of course, an authentic real life experience. Their leaders are born and raised in-country and they know their destination better than anyone. So you’ll do more than just see a place, you’ll live it. Small groups, big adventures and responsible travel – that’s Intrepid’s thing. With 1,000 trips in a variety of styles across 100 countries, you’re sure to find something you like.

Intrepid believe the real magic happens well away from the beaten path. It’s the little noodle bars, hidden galleries and backstreet bodegas and real life experiences you won’t find in a search engine. Real life experiences are those moments you know you’re really alive and experiencing something special. While it could be the instant you see one of the world’s great icons for the first time, it is more likely to be the moment you find yourself in the middle of a village square soccer game, being treated to a home-cooked meal by your new local friends or sharing a laugh with your fellow travellers as you try a new mode of transport … camel anyone? These unexpected moments are what travelling with Intrepid is all about, giving you a trip like no other.

Intrepid realises the world is a really big place. And there’s a plethora of different languages to learn, borders to cross and cultures to negotiate. Small group adventure travel makes these things easy and allows you to maximise your precious time off. Instead of worrying about logistics, you can focus all your energy on having the experience of a lifetime. Their tour groups are small enough to feel like you’re exploring a destination independently, but big enough to create a good social vibe. Group size will vary depending on where and how you’re travelling, but the average group size is about 10.

Intrepid’s themed trips encompass all hobbies and interests or could pique an interest in a new hobby you never knew you needed. From foodie explorations across Asia or India, sailing the seas in Thailand or the Caribbean, wildlife encounters in the Serengeti or Antarctica, scenic cycling or walking to Base Camp or through Tibet, and epic expeditions in Burma or Russia, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

Intrepid is committed to operating in a responsible manner, incorporating the principles of sustainable development in the way they provide travellers with real life experiences. These values are ingrained in the culture and daily operations of every Intrepid office and tour. In addition, they hope their travellers also demonstrate the principles of responsible travel - respecting people, cultures and local environments; in the distribution of wealth; in good will and cross-cultural sharing; and in contributing to sustainable development.
