After early breakfast, we depart from Kathmandu via airplane for Lukla (2840 m). The flight takes about 35 minutes to reach Lukla airport from Kathmandu. The Lukla flight is one of the most dramatic short distance flights in the world. The Lukla Airport is located on a hill and consists of a single runway that drops off towards its end to the deep gaping valley below. Surrounded by tall mountains and jaded hills, the airstrip at Lukla is quite fascinating and the flight is a thrilling adventure in itself. Upon arrival at Lukla, the changes are immediately felt. The mountainous landscape becomes quite prominent and the air carries a crisp freshness to it, which only Himalayan atmosphere carries. From Lukla, the trekking trail slowly moves towards the Cheplung Village. View of the sacred Mount Khumbila from the village at Cheplung is gorgeous. From there, a gradual walk downwards leads to the village of Phakding. The terrain is amazing and tall hills surround the trail like giant mounds of emeralds. From Phakding, the sight of the Kusum Kangraru Mountain can be seen. The village of Phakding lies in the Dudh Koshi River valley north of Lukla and contains many guesthouses and lodges for the service of tourists and trekkers.

If the flight is cancelled, you will have to return back to the hotel in Kathmandu. The transportation back to the hotel and accommodation on this night is not included. If the weather is clear next day, you will get either 3rd or 4th flight to Lukla. If still the weather is not clear, there will be an option for helicopter flight also. The cost for helicopter flight is not fixed. It will be quoted by the airlines on the same day. You will have to pay additional approx. 150/250 USD for the helicopter flight from KTM to Lukla. Although this problem is rare, it is our duty to let you know in advance.
After breakfast at Phakding, the trail further opens out to reach the celebrated mountain town of Namche Bazaar. On route to Namche, several smaller villages are crossed, like Jorsale and Monjo. Monjo lies north of Phakding and is the entry point of the Sagarmatha National Park. The trail ventures through the national park and finally arrives at Namche. Walking along the trekking route through the Sagarmatha National Park presents many virtues, like its alpine woods, small rivers and brooks and deciduous forests. Thick acreages of Pine and Cedar cover the lands and provide a pleasant atmosphere to trek through. Namche Bazaar, because of its strategic location, is the commercial hub of the Khumbu region. It is located on a mountain side and views of the Thamserku Peak and the Kongdi RI Himal from here are amazing.

We then have an afternoon hike to acclimatize in preparation for tomorrow’s walk to the Ama Dablam Base Camp.
Overnight at Teahouse.
Today we cross the Imja Khola river before starting the climb towards Ama Dablam. This is an incredible hike as we leave almost all other hikers behind and visit far less traveled routes. We will arrive at the Ama Dablam base camp just in time for lunch. Enjoy the incredible view and celebrate reaching your goal before heading back to Pangboche. After spending some time at the Base camp, we then head back to Pangboche to spend our night.
Overnight at Tea house.
Early morning after our breakfast, we continue our hike to Khumjung village. Khumjung is a small monastery village above the Namche bazaar, about 135 km northeast of Kathmandu. The Khumjung is located in Sagarmatha National Park, a World Heritage Site. It lies at an altitude of 3,790 meters above sea level and near Mount Khumbila (5,761 m). It is the traditional village along with another Khunde village. These two villages, Khunde and Khumjung, come together when another’s name is mentioned. Khumjung and Khunde are two villages with rock walls that share stony fields and offer a beautiful view of the landscape from all sides.Although the village is far away, Khumjung offers all modern communication options such as internet, cell phone and landline. It is a sparsely populated area with 551 individual households and 1912 inhabitants according to the 2011 census. However, due to the growing popularity of this place, the residents of Khumjung prefer to stay in the village and run tourism companies such as hotels and lodges.
Overnight at Teahouse.
We leave Khumjung to head towards Syangboche, where we get to view the stunning peaks. We then walk to Thame village, where we rest for a while. As we depart from Thami, we walk across Bhote Khola on a bridge. We will after that walk all the way from side to side with the area of Thamo and get there at Namche Bazaar.
