Hannah's Trip

A trek in the Everest Region is now considered to be one of the best journeys in the world, combining a strenuous trek with extremely rewarding cultural and ecological experiences. And This trip specially is focused on giving you a peek of the Everest region with experiencing the Sherpa life in the mountains.

Day 01: Arrival and Transfer to hotel. Overnight at hotel in Kathmandu.

Day 02: Heritage sightseeing in Kathmandu with guide. Overnight at hotel.

Day 03: Day 03: Kathmandu – Lukla –Monjo

Early morning flight to Lukla from where we start our trek. After breakfast, we trek 2-3 hours to reach the village of Monjo. Overnight in Monjo.

Day 04: Monjo – Thamo

After breakfast we trek to Thamo via Namche Bazaar. The trek will be around 5 hours with stopover in Namche Bazaar. Thamo is also for acclimatization.

Day 05: Trek to Thame and back to Namche Bazaar

This day is meant for acclimatization and hence we do not embark on any serious trekking. Instead we go to a slightly lower altitude of Thame, the birthplace of Tenzing Norgay, the first man on Everest. We conduct some sightseeing of the monastery there and generally rest

Day 06: Namche - Phakding

A very long day walk can also be made to Lukla, but it is recommended to take an extra day to get there. From Namche, head to the end of the village and then immediately start to descend to the river. If going up was tough it is equally hard to get the footing and walk down hill. Head along the banks of the river and then further descend to Monjo for lunch. It is interesting to watch others starting enthusiastically on the trek ahead as we head down to our campsite at Phakding. Overnight at Phakding

Day 07: Phakding – Lukla

From Phakding, it is a surprising hard uphill climb to Lukla, which should take about 3 hours. It is a delightful ending to the trip as one enters into this busy village of Lukla.

Day 08: Lukla-Kathmandu

Early morning, fly from Lukla to Katmandu on a twin Otter. Upon arrival, meet and transferred to the Hotel. Rest of day free for leisure

Day 09: Departure

Thank you Hannah for your support and the very best of luck.
