Transfer to airport to connect 30-minutes flight to Lukla. The trek begins gently up by the river side, along excellent paved footpaths, passing a multitude of teahouses and scattered green conifers. Phakding at 2,610meters, is a pretty village comprising approximately 30 houses. It is roughly a 3-hour walk from Lukla and is located at both sides of Dudh Koshi River.
The day will begin with the gentle walk to Monjo, another beautiful Sherpa settlement of the trek; official entry into the Sagarmatha National Park where you will have to show your permits (SNP entry permit and TIMS card)at the office in Monjo. The walk to Namche Bazaar involves a tough uphill climb of about 590m, taking approximately 5-hours, however, halfway up the hill you will be able to see Everest and Lhotse for the first time. As you approach the town of Namche Bazaar, the peaks of Thamserku (6, 648) and Kwangde (6,224m) are visible to the East and to the West, the sacred mountain Khumbila (5,707m).
As gateway to the Khumbu region, Namche Bazaar, at an altitude of 3440meters, is famous for its many bakeries and local market (haat bazzar) which takes place each Saturday. Built on a steep mountain bowl with excellent views of high Himalaya on either side, the town has restaurants, shops, banks and currency exchange. Remarkably, for such a remote location, there are also availability of cyber cafes and pool halls.
It is important to walk to higher altitudes while you stay two Day in Namche bazaar. There are options here to trek to Khumjung where you can visit the local school and hospital or to Thame village of Sherpa Everest expediters and of the great Everest Sherpa Tenzing Norgay or to airstrip at Shyanboche (3720m), above the airstrip is the Everest view hotel, which was set up by the Japanese to bring affluent tourists into the region for a prime view of Everest. The scheme was brought down by the fact the hotel was at nearly 4000m and many suffer form altitude sickness.
The day begins with a slightly climb up about 10-minutes and descend back to the Dudh Koshi at 3550m before ascending to Tyangboche at 3870meters. The views of Everest, Thamserku, Amadablam and the valley are mind blowing. At an altitude of 3870meters; Tyangboche is a charming spot built around the main Tibetan monastery in the region where you can enter and listen to the monks chanting their mantras. The view of Lhotse, Everest and Amadablam are unforgettable.
Your journey will pass through wooded forests and along the Imja Khola valley. The views will become more impressive as the high Himalaya begin to surround you. You will contour gradually to Pangboche, an interesting gompa site above the main village, this is the oldest monastery in the region and apparently dates from the introduction of Buddhism to Khumbu. You will then climb up to Dingboche at 4360meters. The views of Amadablam and Island Peak are breathtaking.
Today, we will have another day of acclimatization. You will head to another beautiful part of the Khumbu region, Chhukung offer you a magnificent views of the Mt. Makalu, Island Peak, Peak 38 etc.
The valley now becomes barren of vegetation as you walk up towards Lobuche, but your attention will be firmly on the snow-capped peaks, which soar above you. The path joins the trail below Thugla and gives beautiful views of Cholatse (6442.) across the valley. The path can become quite rocky in places and it is important to watch your step. After another steep ascent, Tawache and Nuptse are particularly spectacular form Lobuche, towering almost 2 kilometers directly overhead.
Today, the walk towards Everest is along the Khumbu Glacier. You will reach the small village of Gorakhshep, where you will be able to have lunch. After having your lunch the trail will lead you to the Mt. Everest base camp at an altitude of 5400meters. Everest base camp gives you an unforgettable view of Khubutse, Mt. Pumori, Changtse and Khumbu ice fall instead of Mt. Everest.

Review - No review
Excellent trek to Everest Base Camp in Nov 15. Very well organized and good food. Guides and porters of Unique Adventures were nice and very well informed about the Khumbu region.
All this for a very reasonable price. Day tour of Kathmandu was worth doing as well.
I did Everest Base Camp trek in Nov 2015 with a couple of friends and we chose Unique adventures. We thought it would be a very hard trek that needs lot of planning, preparation and would test our limits but Krishna took all the pain out of planning and organizing the trek.
We spent 14 days doing the trek to Everest Base Camp. During that time, we had the team's undivided attention and felt very safe and comfortable. I would recommend Unique adventures to anybody planning for a trek in Nepal.
Our guide was very knowledgeable about altitude mountian sickness, and we noticed that we were one of the few groups that didn't get sick in the entire route. Our guide Krishna and our porters were very patient with us, always available, ready to help and encouraging us when we felt tired and lots of fun to be with. Each and every aspect of our trip was well thought and taken care of.
We originally planned to go to EBC, however, due to poor weather conditions, the airport was shut down (completely out of the company's control). Unique Adventures rescheduled us to do another trek, and was very professional and accommodating. We received a very thorough and detailed break down of the costs, and got a full refund for the flight that was cancelled. Unique Adventures provided us with great service, was very reliable, and our guide (Venn) was fantastic. Would definitely recommend this company to others!
We had a wonderful experience trekking up to ABC (even during Monsoon season), and Unique Adventures was a perfect company to book with. Our plans had to change quickly from EBC to ABC due to poor weather and the change was seamless. Our guide Venn was excellent and was very passionate about his job and country which made the Trek that more meaningful. We highly recommend Unique Adventures to anyone who is looking for an incredible journey in Nepal.
I have just returned from Annapurna Circuit trek and Unique Adventures International Private Limited had organised my trek. Though I had joined an open group, all other participants had dropped out. Khum Subedi told me not to cancel my trek as I had trained myself to do the Annapurna Circuit and was also looking forward to visiting the Muktinath temple. Khum Subedi encouraged me to trek by myself with a guide and a porter provided by him. He had assured me about security and safety. By doing this trek solo with a guide and a porter provided by him, I was able to enjoy my time trekking and also being with the mountains without any hassle. I would recommend Unique Adventures to anyone wanting to trek in Nepal. Infact I would advise people to do solo trek without any group by just contacting Khum Subedi who will organise everything for you.
Fantastic Poon Hill trek
Fantastic experience and very well organised trip, everything from airport pick up, accommodation, to the trek up to Poon Hill. Due to work commitments, we had to make quite a few last minute changes...
