A few notes
As of late 2019, flights between Kathmandu to Lukla have been reduced, and I heard maybe even cancelled, due to congestion and runway maintenance at Tribhuvan International Airport. Rather than flying from Kathmandu, airlines are busing people to Ramechhap airport, which is a 5 hour drive from Kathmandu. From here, you fly to Lukla.
Flight times are very fast (lasting only 12 minutes) and less likely to be cancelled or delayed due to unfavorable weather conditions. When booking your trek with a tour company, confirm your flight details between Kathmandu and Lukla.

We will rise very early and head to the Kathmandu airport to catch the earliest flight possible to Lukla. It is a short 45 minute flight to Lukla, but is often delayed due to low level fog at Kathmandu. Upon arriving in Lukla (9,320ft).The 9km hike to Phakding (2160m) should take 3 hours. When you arrive, you can check into your room and spend the afternoon relaxing and acclimatising.

You get to cross a number of vertigo-inducing suspension bridges while gradually moving uphill towards the entrance to the Sagarmatha National Park and the Everest Region. Next, you head downhill for a short time before levelling out alongside the river crossing mixed terrain. The trail follows the river to the final high double suspension bridges before you begin the quad-burning ‘Namche Hill’. It can take 2 hours to reach the Sherpa village of Namche Bazaar (3340m), where we will be based for two nights. Today’s trek is around 12km or 5 hours, with plenty of breaks along the way.
Day 04: Trek to Everest view hotel ( 3860m/ 12,660 ft) and Back to Namche – Hiking 3/4 hrs
Today is the first of our acclimatization days. We will spend the day hiking around Namche and getting a bit of rest. We will be following the “hike high, sleep low” philosophy by taking a day hike up to Everest View Hotel (12,998ft) and then descending back into Namche to sleep.
Day 05: Trek to Tengboche Monastery (3860M / 12,660 ft)- Hiking 4/5 hrs
Today we hike towards Tengboche, at 3860m. After ascending out of Namche, the first 2 hours are relaxed walking, traversing the left-hand side of the valley, high above the river below. The trail descends down toward the river for our lunch stop. From here it will take 2 – 3 hours to hike up the long hill to the town of Tengboche, home to a stunning monastery and coffee shop that sells the best apple pie and espresso. There are 4-5 hours of hiking today, covering 10km.

After breakfast in Tengboche, you’ll return to Namche Bazaar for lunch and any last-minute shopping before starting your hike down to Monjo. The route takes you steeply down along the Dudh Kosi River. You’ll cross the river and follow it to Jorsale, and then continue crossing the river a few more times to Monjo where you’ll stay overnight. Overnight at teahouse.

If the weather gods are with us we fly back to Kathmandu today and check back into Hotel Tibet. We recommended you book your international flight 2-3 days after your trek finishes. Lukla Airport can close due to sudden weather transitions and for a number of days in a row. If flights are cancelled or delayed for a few days, a helicopter charter flight (approx. $400-$500USD) may be required. Please ensure your travel insurance covers this instance.

Your Best Life Adventure officially ends today, but if inclement mountain weather delays our departure from Lukla to Kathmandu, it is advised that you plan to have at least two extra days in Kathmandu before your international flight departs. Travel insurance is highly recommended.
Free time to discover why Kathmandu is one of the friendliest cities in the world.
Kathmandu has a special atmosphere during the early morning hours when the city is slowly coming to life yet not too chaotic. It’s a great time to walk and explore the streets or have a chai overlooking one of the local courtyards or durbar squares.
After breakfast, there are then a number of ways you can spend your day given the numerous famous sights around the Kathmandu Valley. We provide a local English-speaking guide who knows the city well and can explain the history and significance of the sights (along with a private jeep to take you around).
Things to do in Kathmandu:
Kathmandu Durbar Square (World Heritage Site):
This complex of palaces, courtyards and temples, built between the 12th and 18th centuries, used to be the seat of the ancient Malla kings of Kathmandu. There are also three museums inside the palace building.
Swoyambhunath Stupa – The Monkey Temple (World Heritage Site):
You can watch over the valley from the top of a hillock on its western side. Swoyambhu is also known as Samhengu and the Monkey temple because of the countless monkeys living in the premises.
Pashupatinath Temple (World Heritage Site):
Pashupatinath is one of the most sacred Hindu shrines in the world and lies 5 kms east of the city center. The richly-ornamented pagoda houses the sacred Linga, or phallic symbol, of Lord Shiva.
It is 2500 years old Buddhist stupa in the Valley built in 5th century with four pairs of eyes of Lord Buddha in four cardinal directions keeping an eternal watch over the people and their doings. You will find Buddhist pilgrims from Tibet going round the stupa spinning the prayer wheels.

During the trek, make sure you are always on the safe zone of the place wherever you are while trekking on the mountain because you may encounter a number of mules, yaks are carrying the suppliers for hotels, Yaks Donkey and Jokpa use for the major transportation in the Himalayas region, as we always need to be aware with them, and stay at the safe place especially at the narrow section of the trail.
