The Everest trek is essentially a 10 days, 55 km/ 34 mile walk from Lukla airport, elevation 2800m/ 9186ft, to the Everest viewpoint Kala Patthar, altitude 5545m/ 18192ft.
Khumbu is famous for its proximity to the world’s hightest mountain Mt. Everest (Sagarmatha in Nepali) (8848 m) and for its Sherpa villages and monasteries. The primary goal of an Everest trek is the Everest Base Camp at an elevation of about 5340 meters. But you cannot see Everest from the base camp, so most trekkers climb Kalapatthar, 5545 metre high mountain on the southern flank of Pumori (7161m). We follow an ancient route that will take us through tiny villages, across high mountain passes, and through remote valleys, villages, and monasteries. The views grow even more spectacular as we venture up the Dudh Kosi River to Namche Bazaar, the gateway to the Khumbu region at. We will spend a night next to the Thyangboche monastery (12,887 feet), where you will be rewarded with spectacular views of Ama Dablam, Mt. Everest, and Lhotse.
While there are several variations and options, this is the primary and most popular trekking route in the Sagarmatha National park, the Everest region sanctuary. The trail following the Dudh Koshi river and its tributary, the Imja Khola, passes through Namche Bazaar ( 3440m/ 11285ft), the region’s largest settlement, where most trekkers take a day off to acclimatize, and Tengboche (3869m/ 12664ft), with its great mountain views and famous Buddhist monastery.
A popular variation beyond Namche is the slightly circuitous trail that goes through the large Khumbu village of Khunde and Khumjung before reaching Tengboche. Stopping over exceed 5000m/ 17000ft. The body must be allowed a day or two adapt to the thin air; it does so by initially increasing the rate and depth of breathing and subsequently generating more red blood cells to better absorb the scarcer oxygen. Beside the thin air; it can be very cold at the heights one reaches: in Lobuche and Gorak Shep, the last two halts before Kala Patthar, temperatures fall well below freezing at night even in summer.
From Tengboche, the main trail proceeds upstream along the Dudh Kosi to reach Pangboche, the last permanent village with Khumbu’s oldest monastery. Beyong Pangboche, the terrain becomes barren as one ascends along the Imja Khola to reach Dingboche, places that were more pastures not so long ago.
A rest day at Dingboche (or Pheriche) is recommended, for you have already climbed to height exceeding 4300m/ 14000ft. You are also now deep in the high Himalayas with stunning views all around. From a ridge-top beside Dingboche you can spy the lofty distant peaks of Makalu (the planet’s fifth highest summit) and Cho Oyu (sixth highest). The trail carries on to Lobuche and then on to Gorek Shep, the staging point for the ascent of Kala Patthar and the march, usually the nest day, to Everest Base Camp.
