We invite you to join us on the Trek to the Foot of Everest, a world-famous route that will allow you to see up close the tallest mountain in the world - the legendary Everest. We will go to the main national park of Nepal, Sagarmatha, which contains the highest mountain peaks in the world. A hike awaits you with truly mesmerizing landscapes and panoramic views of titanic mountains (from 6000 to 8800 meters). This trek takes an honorable 1st place in the list of the most visited in the world, and for good reason, because Everest is a legend that everyone has heard about. We invite you to touch this legend. And it's easier to do than you think. If you love mountains, you simply must see this in person. Join us!

Tour program
Day 1. Kathmandu - Mantali
Group meeting in Kathmandu. We buy the missing equipment, hold a general organizational meeting and have lunch in one of the atmospheric restaurants in Kathmandu. After lunch we leave for the small town of Mantali, from where flights to the Everest conservation area take place. We stop there for the night.
Day 2. Mantali - Lukla - Phakding
Early in the morning we take a short but very memorable flight to Lukla (20-30 minutes), between hills and snowy peaks. After a short introductory walk and breakfast, we hit the road. The track begins! Today our destination is the village of Phakding, the path to which goes past the Tadokola River. Rising above its banks, we will see the first snowy peak on this trek - the majestic Kusum-Kangaru (6639 meters).
Day 3. Phakding - Namche Bazaar
Following the path of the high-altitude Dudkoshi River, today we will cross a large number of picturesque suspension bridges, and after half a day of travel, we will find ourselves at the entrance to the Sagarmatha National Park, on the territory of which Everest is located. As we delve deeper into the National Park, the landscapes around us become more and more majestic, and soon the legendary Everest appears in the distance for the first time, and with it two other Titans - Kwangde (6187) and Lhotse ( 8516). In the afternoon we reach Namche Bazaar.
Day 4. Namche Bazaar
Today we have an acclimatization day in Namche Bazaar. This is a fairly large settlement by mountain standards; about 1,100 Nepalese live here. In this village we can enjoy all the fruits of civilization before further climbing up: there are coffee shops and bakeries with traditional Nepalese pastries, shops and markets with everything you need. We will definitely go up above the village - the views from here are fantastic: you will see Ama Dablam, Nuptze, Thamserku and other peaks. Closer to noon, we make a longer acclimatization climb to the highest hotel in the area, where we can have a hearty lunch overlooking Everest.
Day 5. Namche Bazaar - Dole
The days of trekking start, stunning in their beauty and intensity. We will follow a winding mountain path through a forest of fir, blue pine, rhododendron, magnolia and birch trees, with a stunning view of 5 giant snowy peaks over 7 and 8 thousand meters high. With every step you take, the mountains will seem closer.
Day 6. Dole - Machermo
We continue our journey to even more serious heights. We pass the last green thickets of rhododendron and exit the forest zone. The landscapes around are becoming more and more epic. After visiting several of the region's oldest stupas and monasteries along the way, we reach the village of Machermo. Due to its favorable location, the sun's rays illuminate the place until late in the evening, and from here you can watch stunning sunsets against the background of the peaks of Island Peak (6189m), Peak 38 (7591m) and Lhotse (8501m).
Day 7. Machermo - Gokyo
After Mochermo, our route reaches a long ridge, from where a beautiful view of the Kangtega valley opens up, almost to the border with Tibet. Beyond the ridge lies the small village of Pangka, from where we will go to the moraine of the giant Ngozumpa glacier, stretching from the eight-thousander Cho-Oyo towering here. The Ngozumpa Glacier feeds those treasured lakes of Gokyo with water of amazing turquoise color. We spend the night in the village of Gokyo on the shores of Lake Dud Pokhari.
Day 8. Gokyo Lakes
Today we will have a radial exit to the upper lakes of Gokyo. This place is along a walking trail and the nature here seems completely untouched. We will have a view of four eight-thousanders: Chomolungma, Lhotse (8516m), Makalu (8481m), and Cho Oyu (8201m). In such places, you feel the grandeur of the mountains and understand that you are just a grain of sand before the power of natural elements. We will explore several lakes, see a glacier, and return back to the lodge. Those who are tired can simply stay at the lodge and take a day of rest.
Day 9. Gokyo Ri - Tagnag
Today we will climb to the top of Gokyo Ri, which we will do for the sake of, perhaps, the best view that is available to people without a craving for mountaineering. Stunning views stretching to the horizon are the hallmark of all Himalayan regions, but Gokyo Ri has a particularly picturesque all-round panorama. We will see all the splendor of the highest peaks of the planet, a whole series of peaks: Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Makalu, Cholatse and Taboche and others. And also blue lakes and glaciers between them.
Day 10. Tagnag - Cho La Pass - Dragnag
Cho La Pass (5367 m) is the culminating day of our route; we have a rather difficult and long trek ahead of us; we get up early, even before dawn. But the views from the pass in the first rays of the sun will be simply fantastic! After descending into the valley, we still have a couple of hours of travel to reach our lunch and overnight spot. We will drop altitude and stop for tea with the most beautiful views from the entire Himalayan range.
Day 11. Dragnag - Lobuche
From Dragnag we travel to Lobuche along the upper path, through picturesque villages from which stunning views of the twin peaks Taboche and Cholatse open. These giants tower over the desolate Martian landscape of a place that was once home to vast numbers of now-vanished glaciers. Today the handsome Ama Dablam will appear before us again, this time from its most advantageous angle, in the form of an almost perfect snow-covered pyramid. About another hour on the road - and we will have the opportunity to explore the very beautiful alpine lake Cholatse, surrounded by high rocks. Next, we come to the village of Lobuche, where the beauty of the landscape literally takes your breath away. Here, for the first time, travelers see the enormous Khumbu Glacier, which has been hanging from Everest for several thousand years.
Day 12. Lobuche - Gorakshep - Kala Patar
We move towards Gorakshep - the highest permanent settlement in the area. Several hours of travel await us with excellent views of the Khumbu Glacier. We will pass by the famous "pyramid" - an active Italian research station built back in 1991. As the name suggests, it has the shape of a glass pyramid, which, surrounded by snowy peaks and glaciers, produces a rather surreal impression. Today we will approach another famous peak - Kala Patar, from which a view opens that you will remember for the rest of your life and will proudly tell your friends about it. Ama Dablam (6812), Cholatse (6440), Kantega (6782), Pumori (7161), Nuptse (7861) will rise in front of you at the closest possible distance and, of course, from here the best view of the beautiful Everest itself (8848). We meet the sunset at the top, and, having taken plenty of photographs, begin our descent down to spend the night in Gorakshep.
Day 13. Gorakshep - Tengboche
Today, after descending from Gorakshep, the main shrine of this part of the country awaits us - the Tengboche monastery, around which the settlement of the same name was built. During the service in the monastery, you can receive a blessing from the lama for a successful trip to Everest Base Camp, which is what all trekkers who arrive here take advantage of. This place is surrounded on all sides by mountain peaks, which you can see in all their glory during an acclimatization hike in the surrounding area.
Day 14. Tengboche - Namche Bazaar
We continue our descent towards Lukla along completely different paths - our route is not repeated. On the contrary, new, previously unseen landscapes await you. We move along a narrow mountain path winding over a wide-spread canyon, at the very bottom of which the cold Tamkoshi River flows. You will remember the beautiful morning and evening landscapes of local villages for a long time.
Day 15. Namche Bazaar - Lukla
Civilization is beginning to return, because in Namche Bazaar we will see the return of delicious pastries, fresh coffee and other small pleasures that become so valuable high in the mountains. For those who are not tired and are ready to continue their journey, it is also possible to organize a radial exit from Namche to the village of Tame, located among the expanses of alpine meadows under Mount Kongde Ri.
Day 16. Lukla - Kathmandu
Flight Lukla - Kathmandu. It happens that flights from Lukla to Kathmandu are canceled due to bad weather, so we recommend that you allow one extra day in case we are unable to fly on time. If we leave on schedule, this will be your free day in Kathmandu.
Day 17. Free day

Our price for trekking is the best on the market, it is 20% lower than competitors' prices, while we provide the same package of services. We achieve such favorable conditions through long-term cooperation with our partners in Nepal.

4. Author's route

Our treks in Nepal are different from the standard ones, we always try to offer you the best that there is on a particular route and discard boring or less interesting places.

5. Proper acclimatization

We pay great attention to acclimatization of the body in the mountains, for this we have three separate days, in which we will climb and test new heights, and then descend back down. Most groups ignore this crucial preparatory part before climbing to Camp and only use one acclimatization day, which makes your climb much less comfortable.
