You will start the program with a flight from TIA to Lukla Airport in Solukhumbu. The flight takes you over the Himalayas giving you a breathtaking panoramic view of the higher mountains, including the famous Mt. Everest, standing there with the snow-covered peak in all its glory. As the flight continues, you can feel Mt. Everest growing towards you. The altitude will hit you with the panoramic surroundings exactly when you get off from the flight. From Lukla, your trek will begin by the side of the Dudh Koshi which can be seen meandering into the horizon. You will be trekking amidst rhododendron forest smelling the strong aroma of evergreen oak. The sighting of snowy peaks acts as an indicator that the trek is going to be more challenging and gradually the beginning of an adventure will test one’s mental and physical strength.

The trail will start off relatively easy but will gradually become harder. You will be able to get your first glimpse of Everest as you are crossing the mighty Dudh Koshi. As you proceed on further, the trail will lead you to Monjo where you could make a lunch stopover. The next part of the trail will be more difficult. The trail becomes vertical and the altitude will add on as we head towards Namche, leaving one with shortness of breath. One should not increase the walking pace but rather progress slowly and steadily. You will be making a pit stop at Namche Bazaar for overnight. The people of and around the Solukhumbu region conjugate in this area to do business. There are facilities of shops, restaurants, hotels, a bank, and internet services which enable you to get in touch with your loved ones, friends and relatives. Namche Bazaar offers an interesting insight into how people survive in the region.

Namche Bazaar is also known as the Sherpa Capital. You can use your time to acclimatize, relax and explore the surrounding places. Most of the trekkers prefer to get up before sunrise to view the magnificent views of Mount Everest, Thamserku, AmaDablam and other glorious peaks from the Sagarmatha National Park. One can get a chance to observe the shadow of the mountains being projected onto the clouds above and truly appreciate their magnitude. As an energy supplier, one should try salt-butter tea and Champa – a kind of barley often consume by the sherpas in the region. The lively cultural Saturday market is worth a visit and is usually full of traders who are trying to desperately sell off their products.

Everest (8,848 m), Thamserku (6,618 m) and AmaDablam peak standing at 6,856m located exactly at the east side of Mt. Everest, and leads you upwards through a thick forest of rhododendron. There is a high probability of you, coinciding with the Himalayan wildlife like musk deer, Himalayan Tahr, pheasants, monkeys, etc. The lovely aroma of Juniper bush welcomes you and shows the way towards Tengboche.

The village is a popular stop for trekkers and climbers, especially for the acclimatization. There are also many lodges where trekkers and climbers on their way to the Everest Base Camp can stay. In the clear weather, early in the morning, one can see the crystal clear view of the stunning AmaDablam, Kangtega, Taboche, Lobuche Peak and most especially Cho Oyo.
