Itinerary

Once you land at Tribhuwan International Airport (TIA), Himalayan Trip representatives will kindly receive you and take you to your hotel, in a private car or a high-end tourist bus. Our representatives will brief you about the trek. After checking in, you can either explore this vibrant and exciting city on your own, or, take a cozy rest at your hotel.
We’ll visit Durbar Square. Kathmandu’s Durbar Square was where the city’s kings were once crowned and legitimized, and from where they ruled (Durbar means ‘palace’). As such, the square remains the traditional heart of the old town and Kathmandu’s most spectacular legacy of traditional architecture. We’ll then have lunch in a local restaurant, before visiting Boudhanath, the largest Buddhist Stupa in Nepal. From here, we’ll return to the hotel, where the rest of the day is free.
We start with an early flight to Lukla, approx 40 minutes from Kathmandu. After meeting up with our porter and guide, we start our trek to Phakding, easy and mostly downhill. This trek takes us to the lands of Sherpa, and we cross through small villages and individual farms en-route. There will be ample tea houses and lodges to stop off at for a drink and a sit-down. ​We will also be crossing many stones intricately carved with prayers in Tibetan script, with prayer wheels and colourful strings of prayer flags hung from high points and bridges. After a trek of about 2-3 hours we will finally reach our destination at Yeti Mountain Home, Phakding, where we will rest overnight on full board (B/L/D).
After breakfast, its off for a walk by the river through a pine forest which leads to a short climb to escape from a narrow gorge section. We will be passing by the entrance of the Everest National Park, and crossing a spectacular suspension bridge, before an hour and a half long ascent to Namche on a wide trail. It takes about 5 hours of trekking to reach our destination at Yeti Mountain Home at Namche, on full board (B/L/D).
Rest up in Namche to acclimatise yourselves with the altitude. Here you have an optional visit to the internationally known Museum of Sherpa Culture and the traditional villages of Kunde and Kumjung. There is also an ancient market place where you can find lodges, cafes, bars, and souvenir shops. There is also the option of a day hike to the Sherpa villages of Khumjung and Kunde for views out across Everest, Lhotse, and Ama Dablam.
After breakfast, we start our trail through forests of spruce to the village of Thame. En-route, we will be passing the villages of Phurte and Thamo to a junction with the Thame Khola and the Sherpa settlement of Thame. You'll also get the chance to see a magnificent 16th Century Nyingmapa Gompa (monastery). We finally reach our destination after a long trek of about 5-6 hours.
After breakfast, we visit Thame Monastery situated high above the village. For those who wish, they can continue the climb to the Sumdur Ridge where magnificent views of Teng Kangpoche, Kongde, Everest, Makalu, Percharmo, Cho Oyu, Thamserku, Kangtega and Kusum Kanguru are on hand.
Today after breakfast, we start our trail with a descent of around 30 minutes and then follow a trail on the south side of the Bhotel Koshi River through the tiny village of Pare. We will be passing through forests of rhododendron, pine, and bamboo, with spectacular views unseen by trekkers on the normal route. It takes approx 7-8 hours to reach Kongde.
This has been a short holiday in Kathmandu valley, but we are sure that you have enjoyed a wonderful vacation with lasting memories for a long time to come. After you’ve had breakfast, our office escorts & our vehicle will be on standby at your hotel to transfer you to the Airport for your flight back home. We look forward to meeting you again in this amazing country of Nepal.
