Client Testimonials

Bibi is the boy to trek with! We had it on recommendation from a friend of mine that he was great so we wrote specifically to him before we came. He was everything and more than we expected and I can't stress enough how much your guide can make or break your trekking experience. I can't speak for Mactrek's other guides, but our experience of the office was of friendly, professional staff. Thank you Bibi and Thank you Mactrek.

Everest High Passes Trekking

Day by day Itinerary
Day 01 - Arrival Day in Kathmandu.

We start the trip on arrival at Kathmandu with airport pick up service. Since no activities are planned on day one, you can arrive at your own time. A briefing of the trip will be given by the tour/trek guide.

Day 02 - Full day sightseeing program in Kathmandu city.

Full day sightseeing program in Kathmandu city. Sightseeing places are: Pashupatinath,Boudhanath,Swyambhunath and Kathmandu Durbar Square.Evening:Transfer back to hotel and briefing about the trip. Overnight at Hotel.

Day 03 - Fly to Lukla and Trek to Phakding.

Early in the morning we fly from Kathmandu to Lukla (2827m). The flight offers a spectacular view of the Himalayas as we fly parallel to the Himalayan giants bordering Nepal and Tibetan China. After landing we will meet with our porters for the trek. We will have time to explore the village before starting the trail. The trek starts with a descent towards the Dudh Koshi River where we join the main trail to Namche Bazaar. The walking is easy and we will soon reach our lodge at Phakding. 4-5 hours trek.

Day 04 - Climbing to Namche Bazaar.

Advancing slowly will ensure acclimatization. Today we make our ascent to Namche Bazaar, the Sherpa town in the heart of the Khumbu region. In the morning, we set trail following the course of the Dudh Khosi, crossing various suspension bridges back and forth as we make our way up the river valley. Blue pine and rhododendron forest is very spectacular in the spring months when the flowers are in bloom. We will cross the Dudh Koshi at Benkar and enjoy great views of the snow peaks Kusum Kangaru and Thamserku. After Monjo the trek will be a little strenuous as it will involve more walking with a steep ascent to Namche Bazaar. From here, it is a short walk to the entrance of the National Park where our permits are checked before we descend quite steeply to Jorsale. The trek continues upstream on a flat terrain to the confluence of the Bhote Koshi and Dudh Koshi rivers. After crossing a large suspension bridge high above the river we climb steeply to the village of Namche Bazaar 3440m. A slow and steady pace is recommended on this section of the climb and we are encouraged to make the most of the fantastic photographic opportunities as the peaks of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam and Taweche come into view. The effects of high altitude will slow down your pace a little, thus we encourage you to advance slowly. In Namche, we move into our lodge in the midst of the village and the rest of the afternoon is free to bargain for artifacts or embrace the spectacular scenery. 6-7 Hours.

Day 05 - Leisure in Namche Bazaar.

We will spend a day in Namche Bazaar resting and allowing our bodies to become acclimatized to the altitude of 3,450m. In the morning, there is the option of walking up to the Everest View Hotel 3,900m, returning to Namche for lunch.

Day 06 - Trek to Tengboche.

From Namche, the well-worn Everest trail contours around the side of the valley high above the Dudh Koshi. As we follow the path, we will get our first really good views of the great peaks of the Khumbu: Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and Ama Dablam. Passing by several villages and numerous tea shops, we will cross the Dudh Koshi River and make a steep climb to Tengboche (3867m), home of an impressive monastery. We have plenty of time to look around Tengboche and in a relaxing lodge. 5-6 hours trek.

Day 07 - Trek to Dingboche.

In the morning we will visit the monastery before descending through forest of birch, fir, juniper and rhododendron. The walking today is uphill yet done very slowly to adjust to the altitude thus pace yourself slowly .After crossing the Imja river the trail heads to the village of Pangboche, backed by the peak of Ama Dablam, where we will take lunch. Later our trail climbs through open alpine hillsides before we re-cross the Imja River and old glacial remains to our lodge in Dingboche 4260m. 6-7 hours trek.

Day 08 - Rest day in Dingboche.

We spend a further day in Dingboche to continue the acclimatization process before heading towards our first high pass the next day. A short excursion to one of various viewpoints in the area is highly recommended on this day.

Day 09 - Trek to Chukkung.

The trail continues east towards Chukkung (4,730m) where we camp for the night. We make a steep ascent to Chukkung Ri (5,546m). Magnificent views of the vastness of the Everest region together with Ama Dablam and other mountains fill our field of vision to the south and to the north.

Day 10 - Cross Kongma La (5500m) to Lobuche.

It is a long and slow climb up to the pass, and by the time we get there we will be walking on awkward moraine and craggy outcrops, but we will be surrounded by peaks and glaciers in all directions. On the other side of the pass, we descend steeply towards the Khumbu glacier which we cross on our way to Lobuche – our camp for the night. This is a long and tiring day. The difficulty of today’s trek should not be underestimated, particularly in snow conditions where the trek across the glacier at the conclusion of the day can be quite exhausting.

Day 11 - Trek to Gorak Shep.

After breakfast we follow the broad valley running parallel to the Khumbu glacier. The trail ascends only gradually to the moraines of the Changri Nup Glacier but from here we make a series of small ascents and descents over a rocky trail lined with cairns that leads eventually to Gorak Shep 5200m. After lunch we will set off uphill to Kala Patar to experience a comprehensive sunset views from this amazing point. It will probably take a good hour and a half to reach the summit from Gorak Shep, although lower viewpoints will provide views almost as good. Pumori, Nuptse, Changtse, Ama Dablam, Taweche, Kantega and Everest. As we will be descending in fading light, do take a head-torch for this excursion. 6-7 hours trek.

Day 12 - Trek to Everest Base Camp and back to Lobuche.

We will advance early to trek along the glacier to Everest Base Camp, which takes around 3 hours. If you are trekking in the popular climbing period of March to May you will almost certainly encounter yaks and porters supplying food and equipment to expeditions here. From Base Camp we do not get views of Everest but we will be able to see the notorious Everest Ice Fall which is regarded as the hardest and most dangerous section of the mountain. We return to Gorak Shep for an early lunch before re-tracing our steps to Lobuche. Be prepared for a strenuous day. The trek to Base Camp is optional so if you are feeling tired you can rest at Gorak Shep instead.

Day 13 - Short trek to Dzong La.

From Lobuche the trek to Dzong La is approx 3 hours only. Recharging the batteries is possible here.

Day 14 - Cross Cho-La pass.

The views today are magnificent as we leave the Everest watershed and enter that of Cho Oyu, the sixth highest mountain in the world. The crossing is hard work, involving a steep scramble up rock boulders and then a walk across the gently ascending, snow-covered glacier that caps the pass. However, the views of the route ahead, and of the glacier itself, are breathtaking. We descend steep boulder strewn slopes to the Gokyo valley below. This is a valley of turquoise lakes and great glaciers. For the first and steepest part of the descent there are discernible paths that zigzag down the mountainside which are very slippery in snow. Finally we climb a gentle slope to the top, from where it is all downhill following a narrow river valley all the way to its base where we overnight at Tangnag, a small Sherpa settlement.

Day 15 - Trek to Gokyo.

We take a short walk up to the village of Gokyo. Gokyo is a trade centre where the Sherpa people run lodges to provide the best services to the trekkers. Gokyo is situated by the side of Ngozumba glacier, the biggest glacier of Nepal. Less popular with the majority of trekkers visiting the Everest region, Gokyo is no less spectacular.

Day 16 - Climb Gokyo Ri.

From Gokyo village, it is a steep and continuous climb to reach Gokyo Ri (5,483m). In Gokyo Ri we are surrounded in all directions by some of the tallest mountains on earth. To the north – Cho Oyu (8,153m), to the east - Lhotse (8,501m), Kantega and Thamserku fill the horizon to the south, and of course the ever-present Everest sits at the top looking down on all of us. We retrace back to Gokyo for overnight.

Day 17 - Gokyo to Lungdeng crossing Renjo La (5345m).

Today we head up to our final high pass – Renjo La (5,345m), as we leave the watershed of Cho Oyu and cross over into the Bhote Kosi river valley. As we head over the pass, the peaks of Rolwaling greet us, and we enjoy a steep and steady descent into the ‘northern valley’. There is a chance we will meet Tibetan Traders descending from the Nangpa La pass that leads through the Himalayas from Tibet with their caravans of woolly yaks laden with goods. We camp at Lungdeng for overnight.

Day 18 - Lungdeng to Thame.

The topography in the Bhote valley is different from the two preceding valleys that we have explored – the landscape is wider and more open, and the barren lunar landscape of the Tibetan plateau is more visible. We head down the eastern bank of the Bhote Koshi River towards the picturesque town of Thame. When we finally arrive at Thame, we go and visit the Thami Gompa, the site for the Mani Rimdu festival in the spring of each year.

Day 19 - Thame to Namche Bazaar.

We return to back to Namche Bazaar and no doubt there will be earnest celebration of a challenging but satisfying expedition, the likes of which has been enjoyed by very few people.

Day 20 - Trek from Namche to Lukla.

Our final day's trekking follows the Dudh Kosi back down to Lukla. This last evening in the mountains is the ideal opportunity for a farewell party with the sherpa guides and porters, where we can sample some Chhang, try Sherpa dancing and look back on a memorable trekking experience.

Day 21 - Fly from Lukla to Kathmandu.

You take an early morning flight back to Kathmandu. Rest of the day is at leisure.

Day 22 - Shopping day in Kathmandu.

This day is also used as a reserve day because the flights to and back from Lukla can be cancelled due to weather. You can spend the day visiting the town and buying some souvenirs. A cultural dinner together with cultural dance is served in the evening.

Day 23 - Final departure.

Transfer to the airport for final departure back home.
