Beyond Mali Danda we descent into the Khimti valley through the sparsely populated Sherpa settlement of Mali at 2220 m and continue our way to the crossing of the Yelung Khola river at 1860 m. After crossing the Khimti Khola river on another suspension bridge we will reach Shivalaya (4 hrs).

Day 05 : Shivalaya to Bhandar (2250m)

From Shivalaya we start the day with a steep ascent towards the pass at Deorali (2730m). On our way to this pass we will cross numerous streams and walk through the villages of Sangbadanda (2180m), Khasrubas (2330m) and Mahabhir (2590m). From Deorali pass we steeply descent on stone steps through fields and pastures Bhandar, where we will spend the night (5 hrs).

Day 06 : Bhandar to Sete (2520m)

From the village square at Bhandar the trail descents through the lower fields of the village, passing the small settlements of Doharpa and Baranda before crossing the Tharo Khola river on a steel bridge at 1480m. As we follow the east bank of the river we climb towards Kenja (1600m), a settlement inhabited by Newars and Magars. As we leave Kenja we start to ascent steeply towards Chimbu (2170m) and continue on towards Sete where we will spend the night (7 hrs).

 Day 07 : Sete to Junbesi (2580m)

From today our trek is completely in Sherpa country and starts by climbing from Sete to the top of the 3530m high Lamjura Bhanjyang. The way is scenic and varied through forests of rhododendron, magnolia, maple and birch. This section of the trail is also well known for spotting birds like sun-birds, Minavets, flycatchers, laughing thrushes and many others. Lamjura Bhanjyang is the highest point on the trek between Jiri and Namche Bazaar and is marked by a tangle of stones, twigs and prayer flags. On the eastern side of the pass the route descents steeply for about 400m through fragrant fir and hemlock forests and then levels out passing the small village of Tragdobuk (2830m). Continuing our way down we will arrive in Junbesi, a splendid Sherpa village amid beautiful surroundings (6 hrs).

Day 08 : Junbesi to Nhuntala (2200m)

After leaving Junbesi in the morning we cross the Junbesi Khola river and then climb steeply uphill, contouring above the houses to the end of the ridge. From here we have excellent views of Everest, Thamserku (6608m), Kantega ( 6779 m ) and Mera Peak (6654m). This is the first view of Everest on this trek, although the lower peaks in the foreground seem to dwarf the higher, more distant mountains. After passing the Ringmo Khola river, the trail ascends to Ringmo village, with its abundant fruit orchards. Beyond Ringmo we climb to the Trakshindu La pass ( 3071m ), where we can see the isolated monastery of Trakshindu, a superb example of Sherpa architecture. We now descent through forests of conifer and rhododendron, passing shepherds’ huts and settlement alongside the trail until we reach Nhuntala (6 hrs).

Day 09 :Nhuntala to Bupsa

From Nhuntala the descent continues to the Dudh Kosi (‘Milk River’) and cross this river using a 109 m long suspension bridge ( 1510 m ). Our trek then climbs out of the river valley through fields of barley, wheat and corn to the sprawling Rai village of Jubing ( 1680 m ). We continue to climb up a ridge to a Sherpa village named Khari Khola ( 2010m ). Beyond this village we climb past some water driven mills to Bupsa (5 hrs).

Day 10 : Bupsa to Chablung (2700m)

Our trek today starts with a gentle climb, passing the village of Kharte and continues on through forests inhabited by monkeys. From this part of the trek we can admire views of Cho Oyu (8153m). We keep climbing the ridge till we reach the tea-shop on Khari La pass at 2840m. From the pass, the trail descents into the deep canyon of Puiyan Khola. After crossing this river on a wooden bridge we reach the small settlement of Puiyan ( 2770 m ). The trail climbs up and down for about an hour after Puiyan to a ridge that offers a good view of the Khumbu region and then descents 500 m towards Surkha ( 2290 m ). Continuing our trail upwards again, we climb through a jumble of boulders, passing some wonderful Mani walls until we reach the village of Chablung (7 hrs)

Day 11 : Chablung to Namche Bazaar

After leaving Chablung we will cross the Tharo Kosi river on a local-style suspension bridge. Just past the bridge we can see the peak of Kusum Kangru ( 6367 m ), which is the most difficult of the so-called “trekking peaks”. Beyond the Tharo Koshi the trail climbs a bit towards Ghat ( 2590 m ), we will cross a ridge marked with painted Mani stones and climb to Phakding. From Phakding we follow the valley of the Dudh Koshi river, staying on the west bank of the river. We climb steeply over a rocky ridge towards Benkar ( 2710 m ). From here the trail continues alongside the river. All along this part of the trail, villages are interspersed with magnificent forests of rhododendron, magnolia and giant firs. In both the early autumn and late spring, the flowers on this portion of the trek make it a beautiful walk. We cross the Kyashar Khola river and climb out of the valley to Monjo ( 2840 m ). Just beyond Monjo the trek enters the Sagarmatha (Everest) National Park, which was established in 1976 to protect a 1148 sq km area surrounding Mt Everest. Beyond the national park entrance station, the trail makes a steep rocky descent and crosses the Dhud Koshi river on a 120 m-long suspension bridge towards Jorsale ( 2830 m ). After crossing this river a few times while climbing our way up the valley we will reach Namche Bazaar ( 3420 m ). Namche Bazaar is the main trading center in this region and features numerous shops, hotels and restaurants (7 hrs).

Day 12 : Acclimatization in Namche Bazaar

Acclimatization is important before proceeding higher. Today we will take a day hike through the villages of Khunde and Khumjung. We start with a steep one-hour climb to the Shyangboche airstrip ( 3790 m ), from where we will slowly ascent towards Khunde passing numerous chorten (stone Buddhist monuments). From Khunde we follow the trail eastwards to Khumjung, the largest village in Khumbu, at the foot of the sacred peak Khumbila. After enjoying lunch here we will follow a steep switch-backing trail descending to Chhorkung ( 3540m ). From here it is a quick descent back to Namche Bazaar (5 hrs).

Day 13 : Namche Bazaar to Tengboche and Deboche ( 3860m )

Our route of today to Tengboche weaves in and out of side valleys, making small ups and downs, to the teashops of Kenjoma, and joins the trail from Khumjung just before a collection of Mani stones. The views of Everest and Ama Dablam are excellent from this part of the trek. We pass the small settlement of Sanasa from where the trail drops towards Phunki Thanga ( 3250m ). From here the trail climbs steeply through forests and around Mani stones as it follows the side of a hill to the saddle on which the monastery of Tengboche sits at 3870 m. The view from here is rightly deemed to be one of the worlds most magnificent. Kwangde ( 6187m ), Tawachee ( 6542m ), Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse ( 8501m ), Ama Dablan, Kantega and Thamserku provide an inspiring panorama of Himalayan giants. From Tengboche we end our day by descending for about 30 minutes through forests of birches, conifers and rhododendrons to the village of Deboche where we will spend the night at an idyllic Sherpa lodge . (5 hrs).

Day 14 : Deboche to Dingboche (4240m)

From here the level trail passes many Mani walls in a deep rhododendron forest. After crossing the Imja Khola River the route climbs past some magnificently carved Mani stones to Pyangboche (3860m). This is the highest year-round settlement in the valley, and the Pangboche Gompa is the oldest in Khumbu and contains relics that are said to be the skull a yeti. Beyond Pangboche the route enters alpine meadows above the tree line, mostly consisting of scrub juniper and tundra. We will cross the Khumbu Khola river then head northwest toward the Chukkung Valley and arrive in Dingboche at the foot of the valley (4:30 hrs).

 Day 15 : Acclimatization day in Dingboche

To help insure our proper acclimatization before ascending further up to EBC we will spend another day in Dingboche. A good way to spend the day is to hike up to the small summer settlement of Chhukung where we can briefly experience higher altitudes at 4730 m. From here we have tremendous views of Island Peak ( 6189 m ), the south face of Lhotse and the south eastern face of Ama Dablam. After enjoying the views here we return back to Dingboche to spend the night at lower altitude (4 hrs).

Day 16 : Dingboche to Lobuche ( 4930 m )

From Dingboche the trail goes directly up a ridge overlooking the deep valley and the village Periche. After a steep climb from Dulgha where we can stop for tea we reach the memorial area known as Chukpilhara which was built in memory of six Sherpa's who died in an avalanche during the 1970 Japanese skiing expedition on Everest. From here the trail drops a bit and follows the western side of the valley to Lobuche, a summer settlement at 4930m that has become a major trekking stop. The sunset on Nuptse, seen from here, is a memorable sight.(5 hrs)

Day 17 : Lobuche to Gorak Shep (5160m)

The first section of today’s trail follows the western side of the broad Khumbu valley and ascents gently through meadows besides the glacial moraine. The ascent becomes steeper and rougher as it crosses several side moraines. After rounding a bend in the trail, the conical peak of Pumori comes into view. On the lower slopes of this mountain a ridge extending to the south terminates in a small peak, known as Kala Pattar ( 5545 m ), meaning ‘black rock’. The trail then makes a short descent onto the sandy, flat expanse of Gorak Shep. From here we will continue to the current Everest base camp, which is about a 4 hours return walk from Gorak Shep. We will return to this small settlement after our visit to the base camp (6 hrs).

 Day 18 : Gorak Shep to Lobuche (4930m)

After an early morning rise we will start our day by climbing the Kala Pattar ( 5545 m ). This is a steep ascent up the grassy slopes west of Gorak Shep. From Kala Pattar the entire Everest south face is visible as well as Lho La (the pass between Nepal and Tibet, also named the Western Cwm), Changtse (the northern peak of Everest) and most of the West-Ridge route. We return to Gorak Shep and continue to descent to Lobuche (6 hrs).

Day 19 :Lobuche to Dingboche (4360m)

To go to Dingboche we retrace our steps back to Dughla, and then go straight up the hill from the bridge to reach an upper trail, staying high above the valley floor. The views from here are great. You can easily recognize Island Peak and the top of Makalu is visible in the distance over the pass to the right of Island Peak. After passing a chorten we will descent to Dingboche, where we will stay the night (4 hrs).

Day 20 : Dingboche to Tengboche

The route from Dingboche descents the Imja valley, then crosses the Khumbu Khola on a wooden bridge and climbs to rejoin the upward trail at some stone huts. Following the trail downhill from here we will arrive at Tengboche (3 hrs).

Day 21 : Tengboche to Namche Bazaar

Today we retrace our trail what we followed on day 04 to reach Namche Bazaar (5 hrs).

Day 22 : Namche Bazaar to Lukla

It is a long walk from Namche Bazaar to Lukla, but we are probably all in good shape by now. From Namche, we will descent steeply back to the Dudh Kosi river and continue our way past the national park checkpoint at Monjo. The trail then continues back towards Lukla, where we will reconfirm our flight tickets for the next day and spend the night (7 hrs).

Day 23 : Lukla to Kathmandu

The 35 minutes flight from Lukla will bring us back to Kathmandu. Overnight stay at hotel.

Q:  Is Nepal safe enough for tourist to travel?

Yes. In the past, Nepal has experienced political unrest, however since November of 2006, the signed Nepal Peace Agreement, between the Government of Nepal and the Nepal Communist Party (Maoists) has brought this unrest to a close.

Q: Which is the best time to visit Nepal?

The best season to visit Nepal is after the monsoons that end in August until mid-December, before the winter sets in. Also, from mid-February to early June are the most preferred months by visitors. During these two periods, the rains wash the dusty tracks and the valley looks magnificent with blooming flowers. Mountain views are clear most of the time. It is humid in plains at this time but it is still better than the scorching heat of the summer.

It is best to visit hilly areas in summer; that is, the months of May and June. The average temperature at that time is around 22-25 degrees Celsius. Nights are a bit chilly in the lower Himalayan region but are comfortable. Mountainous areas are extremely unsafe during the monsoon season, which are very common. The persistent rains make the hilly tracts slippery.

In winter, most of the hilly areas become threats due to very heavy snowfall and avalanches, but if you are fond of snowfall then you can opt for the lower Himalayan regions that look beautiful covered in blankets of snow.

Q: Is it important to take any vaccines?

You should contact your general practitioner or travel clinic for the latest travel health advice. It is advisable to be up-to-date with Tetanus, Polio, Typhoid, and Hepatitis A vaccination shots. If you are extending your stay in Nepal you may need anti-malarial protection.

 

Q: Do I need travel insurance?

It is necessary to have travel insurance for all clients to take in any tour. It should provide adequate protection for the full duration of the tour to cover personal injury, medical expenses, repatriation expenses, helicopter evacuation, loss of luggage, etc. You can arrange this yourself or through Apex Himalaya in Nepal. The coverage per day is $15 dollars per person.

You must advise your insurer that you are going on a trek at relatively high altitudes and that your cover needs to include air evacuation and repatriation. A copy of your insurance document should be sent to us prior to coming to Nepal.

Q: Do you have an airport pick-service?

Yes we do. If requested prior to your arrival, we can arrange for our airport representative to greet you outside the Terminal Hall. She/he will be holding an ‘Apex Himalaya’ sign with your name on it. Upon arrival, you will be taken to your hotel.

Q:  How much shall I bring & where can I exchange my money?

You can exchange in Nepal, primarily in Kathmandu and in Pokhara. It really depends on your budget and what you want to do and for how long but approximately $500-$1700 in either travelers’ cheques or cash for your trip would be sufficient. ATM cards and credit cards can be used in Kathmandu Pokhara and other cities if additional cash needed. You will need $30 for the tourist visa fee (can receive visa upon entry) at the Kathmandu International Airport. You must pay only in cash in U.S. dollars or Euros. It is advisable to exchange your money either on your first day or the day after while you are in Kathmandu at a reliable money exchange counter.

Q:  Why Should I trek with an agency?

Trekking with an agency can be worthwhile for those who are on a very tight schedule but not on money. A trekking agency can organize a trek for you at affordable costs, which includes food, accommodations, transportation, porters and guides. To receive trekking permits and TIMS cards, clients must go through a trekking agency for issuing and ensuring a safe and legalized trek or tour.

Q: Does your company provide a TIMS card?

Apex Himalaya is a government registered company and a member of TAAN (Trekking Agencies’ Association of Nepal). We are legally authorized to provide TIMS cards to trekkers. For further information about this, please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Q: Should I need to be totally fit in order to trek?

If you are reasonably fit and enjoy walking you will find trekking suits you. Normally the shorter treks tend to be easier whilst the longer ones often require a better standard of fitness. It is important to remember, however, that trekking requires an adequate level of physical conditioning. To prepare yourself for a trek, especially a difficult one that lasts two weeks or more, some moderate physical exercise is recommended before you embark on your journey such as walking, running swimming, or hiking. It is also worth remembering you can choose the pace and direction of your trek.

*Any person suffering from a pre-existing medical condition or diseases must seek medical advice before considering any trek.

Q: What is the general duration of treks?

The duration of the trek depends on the region of the trek and on interests which each client has. Generally speaking, treks can range from 2-3 days to a month’s time or sometimes longer periods if trekkers’ wish. Even the same trek can be of a different duration for different trekkers depending on their wishes and interests on the route.

Q: What do we get to experience in a trek?

You will mostly be on well-maintained trekking routes that consist of dirt trails. The terrain on some of these trails may be long, steep climbs or descents as well as rocky, dusty paths and forest tracks. There are also a lot of big stone steps and staircases especially on the Annapurna circuit. In some cases, treks include mountain passes so the trail can be narrow in places. You will feel a moderate altitude effect starting at around 3,000m upwards.

Q:  Is it necessary to use a trekking guide?

There is no compulsion to use a guide while trekking in Nepal. However, no matter how experienced or fit you are at outdoor activities, it is important to have a good orientation to a new area, especially if you go trekking. We highly recommend every guest to use our trained guides so that guests can easily and safely complete their trek. We believe that having a qualified trekking guide is a minimum safety requirement and can also enhance your enjoyment and understanding of the region as they act as a companion and interpreter. Our trekking guides are well-versed in a variety of foreign languages including English and take full responsibility of everything during a trek or expedition.

Q: What else should I be bringing in a trek?

Most of what you need during a trek is available in Kathmandu, and you can buy them or rent them once you are there. Most books on trekking will list them; check one out before you embark on your trek. If you do not have a book yet and plan to get one only once you are in Nepal, there are some things you may want to bring from home. Bring ear-plugs to help you sleep in spite of barking dogs. A battery operated short-wave radio can be helpful to listen to weather reports or the news. Also bring along a pocket knife, sunscreen, bug spray, sunglasses, photographic equipment, binoculars, a compass, a good watch with possibly an altimeter, and a day pack. Others, you can buy or rent in Kathmandu for reasonable price.

Q: When I go for treks, can I store my luggage somewhere?

Generally your hotel or lodge will let you store your luggage with them for some nominal or no fee. As long as you lock up your bags, they are normally safe.

Q: What is the weather & temperature like while trekking?

The weather can be unpredictable in the mountains. However, at night it is generally cold and the days are generally warm. If it is raining at the base of the mountain, it will be snowing at the top of its peak. There will be heavy snowfall during the months of December and February. It is important that you stay warm and dry in just about any condition. Temperatures could be as high as 20 degrees C and as low as -10 degrees C.

Q: What are the accommodations like on a trek?

Along the trekking routes, tea-houses and lodges generally provide basic clean facilities with a mattress and a quilt or blanket. We can also offer you sleeping bags if needed (which need to be returned after your trip) but it is a good idea to have your own sleeping equipment if possible. Accommodations have private rooms with twin beds that may be used for double or single occupancy. Tea-houses have an adjoining dining room around a fire burning stove. You may take a hot shower but need to ask them to boil the water.

Q: Do you think it is safe to eat freely in Nepal?

In general, yes. But, it's always good to take sensible precautions in order to avoid any health problems. No matter how tempting --and it can get very tempting after a long trek- avoid drinking any other water than bottled water. If you have to drink non-bottled water, purify it with iodine or chlorine tablets (available readily in most drug stores in Kathmandu). Asking for bottled water in restaurants is always a best idea.

Do not eat roadside food that is exposed in the open air. Avoid buying and eating raw and unpeeled fruit and vegetables. Other than that, it is fine to have boiled, fried or properly packaged food items. Read the FAQ on Health and Insurance for details on what to do in case of health problems.

Q: What is Altitude Sickness?

Altitude Sickness is the effect of altitude on those who ascent too rapidly to elevations above 3,000 meters. The basic early symptoms of altitude sickness are headache, loss of appetite and sleeplessness. One shouldn't ignore these early symptoms as these symptoms may lead to more serious warnings and cause death sometimes within few hours. Medicine is no substitute for descent. If a doctor is available, he may give medicine and oxygen. However, the patient must go down to lower altitude even if treatment is given.

Q:  If I suffer from altitude sickness or any kind of sickness, what should I do?

First of all, your trekking guide will provide you with First Aid. If the case becomes more serious, you will be transferred to a health post where you can consult with a doctor. For acute sickness, at your request, you will be immediately taken down by helicopter or airplane to Kathmandu for treatment and rest. It is strongly recommended to descend from the mountain if you are suffering severely from altitude sickness.

Q: What is your cancellation policy and terms of conditions?

If our clients are unable to make their trip or want to cancel their trip due to any unavoidable circumstances, Apex Himalaya can only refund 65% of the deposited amount. However, clients can postpone their travel date or make slight modifications to their original travel itinerary free of cost if given proper notice. Please see our Terms of Conditions for further details.

Q: Which documents do I need to bring with me?

You should bring a valid passport (must be valid for up to 6 months after you return from your tour; keep an extra photocopy just in case), a copy of your travel insurance, cash and traveler’s checks (keep numbers and proof of purchase separately); flight tickets, emergency contact numbers of T/C’s, banks, insurance and family members and any medications.
