The trek starts in the city of Kathmandu, where you'll meet your guide and embark on a short flight to Lukla (2,860 m), the starting point of the trek. From there, you'll follow the route to Namche Bazaar (3,440 m), a bustling town that serves as the gateway to the Everest region. From Namche, you'll continue on to Tengboche (3,860 m), Dingboche (4,410 m), and Lobuche (4,940 m), where you'll have the opportunity to visit local monasteries and learn about the culture and traditions of the region.
You take acclimatization days in Namche Bazaar and Dingboche villages. The acclimatization hikes take you to Hotel Everest View (3,962 m) and Nagarjuna Hill (5,100 m). On the way to Lobuche, you'll walk on the glacier to cross Dughla pass (4,920 m) and further follow the Khumbu Glacier moraine. The later part of the trail to Gorak Shep (5,164 m) steeply ascends. Gorak Shep is the last settlement area before the Everest base camp (5,364 m).
The trail from Gorak Shep to EBC is trodden and slippery. Once you reach EBC, a stunning panorama of Khumbu Icefall will blow your mind. After spending some time at the base camp, descend to Gorak Shep to spend the night. The next morning hike to Kala Patthar (5,644 m) and retrace the trail back to Lukla via Pheriche and Namche Bazaar.
