Day 04: Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3,440m/11,283ft): 5-6 hours
We begin trekking after breakfast. Our trail passes through pine forests and we also walk alongside the Dudh Koshi River. After walking for around an hour, we begin to see Mt. Thamserku (6,608m) on our right. We continue our trek through lush pine, fir and juniper forests, cross a few suspension bridges and reach Namche Bazaar. 

Day 05: Namche Bazaar (3,440 m/11,283 ft): acclimatization


This is the day set aside for acclimatization. While in the Namche village or upon returning from the hike to the Everest View Hotel, trekkers may also visit the local museum containing exhibits displaying the area’s native flora and fauna as well as the history of the Mount Everest region.

Day 06: Namche Bazaar to Debuche
We trek further along the Everest route and pass through beautiful villages and cross the Dudh Koshi River while also enjoying magnificent views of the Himalayan peaks like Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and Ama Dablam along the way. After ascending on a steep trail, we reach the Tengboche Monastery and spend some time there.

Day 07: Debuche to Pheriche (4,300m/14,107ft): 5-6 hours


We hike to another village called Pangboche on our way to Pheriche. Pangboche is a scenic village surrounded by Everest to its north, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, and Kangtaiga to the east, the Kongde range to the south and the Imja Tse River flowing through the wide fertile valley. From here, we continue further up towards Pheriche, another beautiful village for an overnight stay.

Day 08: Acclimatization
Today we climb a terrain above the Pheriche village as it is well suited to give us a good hiking experience in a cold condition. After an uphill climb to the top of the hill, we are rewarded with great views of the Himalaya

Day 09: Pheriche to Ama Dablam Base Camp (4570m/15000ft): 5-6 hours


We begin today’s trek by walking back to Pangboche and crossing the Dudh Koshi River. Next, we ascend on a trail which will take us to the Ama Dablam Base Camp. 

Day 10: Acclimatization and Pre-climb training at Ama Dablam Base Camp
Our guides will provide training on peak climbing techniques and the best ways of using climbing gear such as the ice axe, climbing boots, crampons, harness, ascender, etc. The training will also include using ropes for climbing both up and down. The training will boost our confidence and climbing skills, thus increasing our chance of a successful summit of the mountain. 

Day 11-25: Ascending and Descending of Ama Dablam (6856m/22488ft)


From the Ama Dablam Base Camp we move further up to Camp 1 at 5,700m (17,400 ft) along the standard route. Generally, one night is spent at Camp 1 for acclimatization and before returning to the Base Camp for the final preparation to scale the summit. There are three camps above the base camp before reaching the summit. The ascent from Base Camp to Camp 1 is technically challenging. From Camp 1, we follow existing fixed lines and then establish new ropes wherever necessary both for ascent and descent. The climb from Camp 2 to Camp 3 is comprised of mixed rock, snow and ice, which is loose in certain places. The climb from Camp 3 to the summit is relatively less technical. After summiting the peak, we return back to the base camp.

Day 26-27: Trek to Lukla
We trek back to Lukla via Tengboche, Namche Bazaar and Phakding.

Day 28: Fly back to Kathmandu
We catch an early morning flight to Kathmandu after our long mountain journey. After reaching Kathmandu, we can take the much needed rest in our hotel room.

FAQ

Can I really climb a mountain? Do I need to have climbing experience? 
We suggest that people undertaking a first climb should have at least overnight trekking experience. For those who wish to take on a technically difficult, remote or extreme altitude mountain we'd expect participants to have appropriate experience and skills. 

What type of people comes along?
Climbing expeditions usually attract people in their twenties to fifties. Participants tend to be seeking a good quality, safe, well supported, good value and enjoyable adventure rather than the lowest cost.

How fit do I need to be? Will I have to carry a lot of weight? Should I be able to do 100 chin ups?
The fitter you are, the more fun you (and your companions) will have. You will find guidance on preparing for your expedition on each adventure's web page (search here), our info packs and trip dossiers. A minimum level of fitness would have you being able to walk all day on uneven, hilly ground, carrying your day pack, and be able to get up again the next day. Many climbs will require a higher level of fitness and strength so you can carry heavy gear to high camps and really exert yourself on summit day.

What gear is provided?
 Included are individual sleeping tents for the trekking phase of most climbing expeditions, with dining and kitchen tents. On the mountain participants share serious, proven mountain tents. Climbing teams are equipped with emergency communications and first aid equipment as well as more prosaic things like climbing and cooking gear. 

Who will be responsible for my safety?
The short answer - you! All participants are expected to behave in a responsible manner, taking due care of themselves and others. Your expedition leader is responsible for the group including participants and staff. He or she will advise, manage and assist everyone, sometimes with the support of an expedition first aider or doctor, and will be assisted by guides, sherpas, and you and your climbing colleagues, all of whom will have roles to play.

What if I get sick or have an accident?
 Despite the best precautions, people do sometimes fall ill, sprain something or develop symptoms of AMS. Our expedition leaders will manage your care keeping in mind what's best for you and the rest of the group. Precautions include first aid qualifications and kits, emergency communications, evacuation plans, your travel insurance cover and our pre-preparation and medical advisors.
