Day 01: Fly Kathmandu to Lukla (2805m), trek to Phakding (2652m) – Guest house accommodation – 4 hours walk
Fly to Lukla. The flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and the landing at the small mountain airstrip is something you will be talking about for many years to come. After landing on the newly resurfaced airstrip, you will probably have a cup of tea at one of the lodge in Lukla before commencing trek. Bypass several villages before making a lunch stop at a beautiful spot alongside the Thada Kosi (river) below the base of the Kusum Kangru Himal. The second half of the trek to Monjo does not take more than 3 hours. The next big tourist village on the way to Monjo is Phakding (8700 ft/ 2,652 m). The entire walk from Lukla to Phakding is mostly easy walking over gentle up and down hills. Memories of the first day will include the sounding birds, the sights of porters with loads resting on sticks outside tea houses, tired trekkers on their way back to Lukla, prayer flag poles, the gaudy colors of the tea houses and of course the dramatic scenery.
Day 02: Trek to Namche Bazaar (3445m) – Guest House accommodation – 5 hours walk
As you start, you enter into Everest National Park area where entry formalities have to be completed. Today will be one of the harder days of the trek but we take it slowly, enjoying the scenery as you climb gradually upto Namche Bazar. Along the way there are two suspension bridges to cross as you zig zag up the Dudh Kosi river to reach at the base of the climb to Namche. A long steep climb but with several stops to catch your breath, and a slow pod, we make our way steadily upwards. The trail to Namche Bazar is a well marked, comfortable broad trail. Walking in the cool part of the morning it is easier to breathe and get used to the increasing altitude. After a easy paced three hours of hike you arrive at the heart of Khumbu- Namche Bazar (3540 mts). A well deserved break is planned for lunch and to look around this interesting small town.
Day 03: Acclimatization day in Namche Bazaar (3445m) – Guest House accommodation -3/4 hours walk

You climb steadily for about 2 hours to Thyangboche Monastery (3875m) and the views from here are magnificent. The Monastery is literally surrounded by mountains. Yaks graze on the small meadow and the monks drone through their prayers. Yes, this is one of the most beautiful spots in the world.
