Everest Classic Trekking

Everest Classic TrekkingThis trek has been a popular destination for trekkers since the very first ascent to the summit of Mt Everest in the 1950s. For visitors, this trek does not only bring to the close of highest peak on the earth, but also provides an insight into our culture and lifestyle of the highland Sherpas. The stone walled fields and houses of ancient villages steeped in history and tradition, golden roofed monastery set amidst stunning mountains and scenery are equally adored. Sherpas are known for their feats of courage and endurance on the world’s highest mountains, for their understanding, hardness and humor, they are indispensable in managing our treks. This trek can be done either ways; you can drive till Jiri and gradually ascend from 1860 m to 2800m at Lukla where otherwise you would reach to, by flight from Kathmandu directly.

From either ways, after Phakding, the trail winds slowly downwards to touch the Dudhkoshi River, passing fragrant forest of Juniper, blue pine and fir. Between 3600m and 4200m, birch and rhododendron trees predominate. Walking along a steep a uphill trail, you come to Namche bazaar, the largest Sherpa settlement. A further gain in altitude brings you to Thayangboche where we visit a famous monastery and see how Lamas practice. The views from Thyangboche to mount Everest and other prominent peaks like Lhotse, Nuptse, Amadablam, Cho-yu and others are awe aspiring. On the way you may encounter, the Musk deer, Himalayan Thar, Ghoral, Wolf and the Himalayan Black Beer. Sometimes, some endangered species like Snow Leopard, the Red Panda and too dazzling Pheasants-the Crimson horned and the Impeyan.

After crossing a stream through a wooden bridge we climb further until the top of the Pass at 2705m.The mine walls indicates that the trail is now entering an area dominated by Tibetan culture.

Day 11 Phakding-Namche.
Today there is a long, steep climb up to the town of Namche Bazaar (11300ft, 3440m), the main administrative and trading center for the Khumbu region. The climb is, however, made easier by the distractions offered by the magnificent forests of blue pine, fir, juniper and rhododendron as well as our first views of Mt. Everest.

Day 12 Acclimatization day at Namche Bazzar.
This day can be spent relaxing at camp, exploring the tiny shops in the bazaar and the local museum with exhibits of the flora, fauna, and history of the Everest region. You can also participate in an optional hike to some of the Sherpa villages nearby, such as Kunde and Khumjung, or take a more strenuous walk to Thame.

Day 13 Namche Bazzar-Tengboche.

Morning visit to the colorful Saturday market, where local and Chinese goods (brought over the high passes from Tibet) can be seen and purchased. We then head for Tengboche, along a trail with spectacular views of Everest, Lhotse, Kantaiga, and Ama Dablam. We stay the overnight near the Tengboche Monastery at  (3875m), one of the most impressive locations on earth. We will have the opportunity to explore the monastery and see monks at prayer.

Day 14 Tengboche-Pheriche.

The first part of the day is spent walking through lush rhododendron and pine forests. We eventually emerge above the tree line and continue for the rest of the day up the glacial valley until we reach Pheriche at 4240m. Some trekkers go to Dingboche at 4252m for overnight stay. En route we see some of the area's most beautifully carved mani (prayer) stones.

DAY 15 Acclimatization day in Pheriche.
This is the second of the mandatory acclimatization days on this trek.

Day 16 Pheriche-Lobjuje
From Pheriche you will climb to the tiny settlement of Dughla (4620m), on the terminal moraine of the great Khumbu Glacier. Then an ascent higher on the moraine brings you to a row of stone monuments and the trail drops a bit and follows the westrn side of the valley to Lobuje, a summer village at 4930m. It is at the foot of giant Lobuche peak. Again the views are spectacular and the sunset on Nuptse, towering directly ahead of Lobuche is especially impressive.

Day 17 Lobuje-Kalapattar Peak-Gorakshep.

This will be one of the most difficult yet rewarding days of the trek. Most of this day is spent climbing Mt. Kalapattar, a small peak (by Himalayan standards) at 5545m. The ascent is demanding but the climber gets the most magnificent mountain panorama possible: Everest, the highest point on the planet at 8848m, towers directly ahead and on all sides loom the other giants, Nuptse, Pumori, Chagatse, Lhotse and countless others. If possible we can stay and watch the awe-inspiring sunset on Everest and its neighbors. We make a quick descent to Gorak Shep, a tiny hamlet at  5170m, where we stay the night.

Day 18 Optional trip to Everest Base Camp

If you are not exhausted, you can take the strenuous trip to the base camp at 5360m but is not as spectacular as the ascent of Kalapattar because there is no view of Everest itself from there. You will have to along the Khumbu Glacier and up to Everest Base Camp at 17600ft, 5380m the closest you can get to Mt. Everest without mountaineering equipment. There will likely be a team there about to attempt the summit. The view of the Khumbu Icefall from Base Camp is spectacular. We return down to Lobuche for the night.

Day 19 Lobuche-Dingboche.

You will retrace down the way to Dingboche.

Day 20 Dingboche-Upper Pangboche.

From Lobuche we take a slightly different route down to Upper Pangboche. Here is the oldest monastery in the region, which contains what is said to be the scalp and bones of a Yeti, or abominable snowman!

Day 21 Upper Pangboche-Namche

We descend to join the main trail above Tengboche and continue on down to Namche.

Day 22 Namce-Lukla
Descend down to Lukla for our final night in the Khumbu. Although it may have looked primitive the first time through, Lukla will seem quite modern after the isolated villages up the valley.

Day 23 Lukla-Kathmandu

An early morning flight takes us back to Kathmandu, and gives us a last view of the mountains we have just spent two weeks exploring.
