Arrival in Kathmandu. you are greeted at the airport by our team and then transferred to our hotel. Evening briefing from your guide.  

We reserve this day for sightseeing in Kathmandu Valley and to prepare for trekking. Point with the responsibility of the expedition on the carried material. If necessary, the many mountain equipment shops in Thamel can supplement your equipment. During this time, our local team does what is necessary to complete the essential administrative formalities and access permits.  

Very early departure (between 2 am and 4 am) for Ramechapp airport. On your arrival, a breakfast near the airport will be organized before taking your flight to Lukla. On your arrival in Lukla, organize the loads with the porters and the sherpas then start the trek. Depending on availability in the lodges, stage in Phakding (2610 m) or Monjo (2835 m), in order to shorten the next long stage to Namche Bazar.

We appreciate the softness and greenery of the Dudh Kosi Gorge. At this average altitude, vegetation is still abundant, pine forests cover the steep slopes. At the detours of the trail, we discover hamlets nestled in clearings, nestled above the banks of the river or perched on small flats. After the village of Monjo, we enter the Sagarmatha National Park (“goddess mother of heaven” Nepalese name given to Mount Everest). Created in 1976 and listed as a World Natural Heritage by UNESCO, the park extends over the entire watershed of Dudh Kosi, within which our course. By a wide path winding through the pines, we climb 500 meters above the confluence with the Bhote Kosi. Around 3100 meters, a small stop is needed to discover Everest in focus. Namche, the capital of the Sherpa country is staged in a large amphitheater overlooking the gorges, facing the peaks of the Lumding Himal. The village is of importance, nearly 2500 inhabitants live in opulent houses. Markets, traditional shops, and Sherpa shops offer a lively atmosphere.

Free day on Namche, the most important city in the region. Many lodges and restaurants are present for this starting point of the trek to Everest. It is the ideal place to rest and acclimatize at high altitude, before embarking on this hike. According to the desire, half-day trekking on the heights of Namche Bazar: villages of Khunde and Khumjung (3780 m), landscapes of pastures and small well-ordered fields. We can admire the sunset on Ama Dablam, Nuptse, and Everest above Namache (1-hour walk).  

We climb above Namche Bazar by a gently sloping path on the mountainside to Mong Pass, overlooking Ama Dablam and Kantega, two of Nepal’s most spectacular peaks. We then descend to Phortse Tenga at 3600 m at the edge of the Milky River (Dudu Khosi) and go back slightly to the village of Phortse (3810 m). This day allows us to perfect our acclimatization to the altitude

A slow and steady climb up the Khumbu Valley to Pangboche, the village dominated by Ama Dablam. For 1h30, we go along the river imjakhola through Shomare, then we follow Lobuche Khola to Pheriche  

Easy walk for 1 hour, then the trail climbs gently until Thokla (4620 m), then a steep climb to the Thokla pass (4830 m), where there are chortens in memory of the dead during the ascent of the Everest. We have an exceptional view of the West peaks of Everest and the elegant summit of Ama Dablam.

Rest is essential to our body for the success of the ascent.  

We start by following the valley to the confluence of the Khangri glacier. Gorakshep and its sandy plain precede a tedious walk on the moraine of the Khumbu glacier. Arrive at base camp, at the foot of the famous “Ice Fall”.

Here we are at work, in the vast international camp regrouping all the expeditions. We will be staying there for 45 days in total. Everyone takes their quarters for the following weeks. The breath is short, it is better to avoid moving in all directions. Throughout the stay, we will have to move our tents according to the movements of the glacier. The lunar landscape remains impressive with the sparkling faces of Pumori, Lho La, Nuptse, and Lhotse. The temperature in full sun

Third day of acclimatization. Sherpas and all participants are invited to attend the traditional Buddhist ceremony ( Puja ), without which the ascent could not be done. We prepare our materials and equipment.

Day devoted to setting up the ropes. Your expedition leader and your altitude sherpa review your mastery of all the techniques necessary for the ascent: handling of the self-locking handles and progression technique for ascent and descent on fixed ropes, in particular.

DAY 18 TO 53: ASCENT OF EVEREST (8848M) The main stages of the ascent are as follows:   CAMP I: 5,900 METERS Reaching C1 is the most technical part of the ascent on the south side. You have to cross the Khumbu icefall. The “ Ice Doctors ”, Sherpas specializing in the installation of fixed ropes along the icefall, recognized the best passage for the current year. 600 meters of progression on the glacier in perpetual motion. The camp is located at the entrance of the western valley, at the exit of the waterfall. We limit the stay to two nights at Camp I for acclimatization. As soon as possible, we go up to Camp II whose excellent location makes it the ideal starting point to the summit.   CAMP II: 6,400 METER The C2 occupies a site on the left bank of the western valley, at the foot of the western ridge. Very safe, the place offers a breathtaking view of the Lhotse. A real advanced base camp, we set up a kitchen tent and a mess tent for optimum comfort. From this camp, we will launch the attempt to the top. You will spend several nights there beforehand, before going up to the upper camps.   CAMP III: 7,100 METER The long climb from C2 to C3 puts the tenacity of the participants to the test. The high altitude slows down the progression, without however already being able to call upon the assistance of oxygen. The slope that leads to Lhotse displays an incline of between 30 and 45 ° on very hard, even icy snow. The progression must be done along the fixed ropes. You will sleep two nights at C3 before continuing to the summit.   CAMP IV: SOUTH PASS AT 8,000 METER The long-awaited moment arrives: you cross the South Pass. This vast, windswept lunar field is the lowest depression between Everest and Lhotse. Most Himalayas access it without the help of supplemental oxygen. You have to cross two characteristic rocky sections before reaching the pass: the yellow band, a layer of marble and schist, and the top of the Genevois spur, a black rocky band. These two passages are equipped with fixed ropes.   EVEREST SUMMIT: 8,848 METER The last part of the route is climbed in 9 to 13 hours round trip. We use the oxygen right from the start of C4. We go up to regular slopes in the balcony to the southern summit (8,749 m). From there, a long ridge leads to the “ Hillary step ” (8,790 m), or what remains of it since the 2015 earthquake. The last few meters are not difficult, apart from the very high altitude. Your Altitude Sherpa determines, based on your progress and the time you reach the various obstacles, whether you have time to safely reach the top and come back down

Last glances towards the top. It’s time to head back home. The long day to reach first Lobuche and finally the pastures of Dingboche. The softness of the landscapes contrasts with the lunar site of the base camp.  

A pleasant day of walking along the valley. This time we go directly by the balcony path which leads to Namche Bazar.

Flight to Ramechapp airport then transfer to Kathmandu. The flight is subject to weather conditions, a delay in the day of rotation is possible. This is why we always plan a reserve day in Kathmandu before resuming the international flight. Transfer to the hotel in Kathmandu and a free afternoon.  

Free day in Kathmandu also serves as a security day in case of problems on the Lukla / Kathmandu or during trekking. Today, you have a rest day to relax or you can also go shopping in Kathmandu or you can do anything you like to by yourself.

free time depending on the departure time of your flight and our representative will drop you at the airport, ending your journey in Nepal. We hope to be of service to you again. Thank you and safe travels.
