Itinerary

Day 1Arrival in Kathmandu

We welcome you at the airport. On the way to the hotel you will get to know the hustle and bustle in Kathmandu. When you arrive at the hotel you will also meet your guide, who will accompany you on your tour to Labuche Peak.

Overnight at hotel with (A)

Day 2 Leisure time in Kathmandu

Enjoy your breakfast and a day off in Kathmandu. First, however, we check your equipment, especially when it comes to climbing the mountain. So you would also have the opportunity to buy missing. Close to your hotel you will find numerous shops with good and cheap trekking equipment.

Overnight in hotel (F)

Day 3Flight to Lukla and trekking to Phakding (2610m)

Let’s go, for now with a small plane, along the Himalaya chain, to the famous airport in Lukla. Right here you will get to know your carriers and the trip can begin. First downhill to the small town Phakding.

Overnight in Lodge (B / L / D) Hiking time approximately: 4 hours

Day 4Trekking to Namche Bazar (3440m)

The Sherpa capital of the Khumbu region is filled with exciting trails, many suspension bridges – including the largest in the Everest area and steep climbs. Especially the last day’s stage has it all. The path always winds up to Namche.

Overnight in Lodge (B / L / D) Hiking time approximately: 7 hours

Day 5acclimatization

The day today serves mainly the height adjustment. But even today we make a hike. For example, the Everest View Hotel, with its best mountain views, is a good alternative today. Namche still offers a lot of “luxury”, which will not be the case the following days. End the day with a delicious milk coffee and home-baked cake in one of the Bakeries.

Overnight in Lodge (B / L / D)

Day 6 Trekking to Thame (3830m)

The way to Thame leads past many Manimauern and the tranquil village of Phurte in typical Nepalese up and down. The Sherpa village of Thame is home to a beautiful old monastery built on a hillside. Here is really worth a visit.

Overnight in Lodge (B / L / D) Hiking time approximately: 6 hours

Day 7 Trekking to Lunden (4368m)

On the way of the old trade route, which is still used today, we climb slowly uphill into the increasingly barren landscapes.

Overnight in Lodge (B / L / D) Hiking time approximately: 5 hours

Day 8 Trekking to Gokyo Lake (5790m) via Renjo La Pass (5355m)

A long trekking day, which starts quite early, is in front of you today. At Renjo La Pass, there is undoubtedly an overwhelming view of many snow-capped mountains waiting for you. Since there are no lodges on the way, we take packed lunches and look for a nice sheltered spot for our rest.

Overnight in Lodge (B / L / D) Hiking time approximately: 8 hours

Day 9Ascension Gokyo Ri (5357m) & Trekking to Thangna (4698m)

A busy day, richly rewarded with bombastic views. Again we leave very early to climb the Gokyo Ri. Almost to the touch, so close, you can see the Everest (8845m), Cho Oyo (8153m), Lhotse (8501m) and the Makalu (8463m). Thangna is far down, at the foot of Cho La Pass. Also along the glacier at decreasing altitude, we hike on towards the lodge.

Overnight in Lodge (B / L / D) Hiking time approximately: 8 hours

Day 10 Trekking to Zongla (4800m) via Chola Pass (5368m)

The phenomenal landscape on this stage has a lot to offer. But the steep pass over the Chola demands a lot. Demanding and steep it goes forward until the arrival at the lodge.

Overnight in Lodge (B / L / D) Hiking time approximately: 8 hours

Day 11Trekking to Labuche High Camp (5105m)

Shortly after Zongla, the path meanders, for the time being mostly straight ahead, to the Labuche base camp. But from here, it gets more exhausting. Over steeper sections, also over boulders, we make our way to the high camp of Labuche Peak. Our crew is already in front of you and has set up the tents and cooked a meal. We enjoy the simple but tasty local cooked dish. The little refreshment is good. But the day is not over yet. Our Climbing Guides will give you a little introduction and mountain training for the next day.

Overnight in tent (B / L / D) Hiking time approximately: 5 hours

Day 12Climbing the Labuche Peak (6119m)

Over scree fields as well as a few smaller climbing passages over rocks we make our way, starting in the very early morning in the dark. After about 5 hours we reach the Cromponpoint with its ice fields. The incline, sometimes 45 to 60 degrees steep, is equipped with fixed ropes in difficult places. Slowly we make our way to the summit. Once at the top there is time to see many high mountains in the area. Renowned mountains like, the Ama Dablam of Everest, the Nuptse and Chola Se greet up here. Now it’s time to tackle the way back to Labuche. This is different and not on the high camp.

Overnight in Lodge (B / L / D) Hiking time approximately: 12 hours

Day 13Reserve day

We reserve this day as a reserve day. Should be necessary because of bad weather or an overnight stay in the base camp. Your guide and you decide on the spot how you will proceed with the day, should he not be necessary for the ascent.

Overnight in Lodge (B / L / D)

Day 14 Trekking to Gorak Shep (5140m)

It’s a short leg to Gorak Shep, which we reach at noon. The day is not over yet. After a short break at the lodge, we make our way back to the long, seemingly endless path to the Everest base camp. It is worth it, even if one of the Everest “only” a small tip sees. The natural beauty that surrounds us can hardly be described in words. Just enjoy it, even if it is a bit difficult. We gather new strength over a cup of tea and embark on the seemingly endless path over glacier scree to the Everest base camp. Doubtlessly quite laborious, but still very worthwhile!

Overnight in Lodge (B / L / D) Hiking time approximately: 8 hours

Day 15 Trekking to Pheriche (4250m) & Ascension Kala Pathar (5550m)

At the top of the Kala Pathar you have a dreamlike panorama on so many snow covered mountains. The Khumbu glacier winds deep down but the high mountain landscape. Slowly the sun rises and illuminates the ice giants in various colors. It becomes easier again after the descent and the further way to Pheriche. The air gets noticeably thicker again, so that sleep is easier again.

Overnight in Lodge (B / L / D) Hiking time approximately: 8 hours

Day 16 Trekking to Tengboche (3870m)

Such an impressive monastery in the Himalayas, Tengbuche, is almost a must. Easy step downhill to lower altitudes, we reach this beautiful place, where the oldest and most beautiful monastery in the region is located. And this with a gigantic mountain scenery. Be sure to look at the Buddhist cost, maybe just a prayer ceremony (puja), then stick to it.

Overnight in Lodge (B / L / D) Hiking time approximately: 7 hours

Day 17Trekking to Namche Bazar (3440m)

Each step will be easier, on the way back to the Sherpa place Namche Bazar. Here are some amenities you may have missed the last few days. Visit the Sherpa Museum. It is worth it ..

Overnight in Lodge (B / L / D) Hiking time approximately: 6 hours

Day 18 Trekking to Lukla (2840m)

A long but interesting path on familiar paths through quaint Sherpa villages and a magnificent landscape almost just downhill. At the end of the day we go uphill to Lukla and our tour ends here.

Overnight in Lodge (B / L / D) Hiking time approximately: 6 hours

Day 19Return flight to Kathmandu

With good visibility, you have once again a magnificent view of the Himalayan mountain range during the flight back to lively Kathmandu. The rest of the day is at your discretion. Rest, shop, culture – many possibilities are open.

Overnight in hotel (F)

Day 20Leisure time in Kathmandu

The next few days we have kept free for sightseeing in the Kathmandu valley and as reserve days. It may happen that the aircraft can not take off to and from Lukla for weather reasons. What only serves your safety. Flights in Nepal are visual flights. The following days serve as a safety buffer.
Whether the palace of a true child goddess, one of the largest stupas outside Tibet, a Buddhist temple complex full of monkeys or the Hindu sanctuary Pashupatinath – the city has something. Optionally, you are welcome to book a guided visit, also German speaking and short term, in Kathmandu.

Overnight at the hotel (F)

Day 21 Kathmandu again

How about a trip to Bhaktapur? Wonderful temples, shrines and pagodas with filigree wood carvings await you in the old royal city. The small old town around the square has lost none of its charm despite, in some cases stronger damage after the earthquake. There is enough time in peace to see everything. Whether organized on your own or with us (optional), this day could be very nice.

Overnight at the hotel (F)

Day 22 return home

Departure and transfer to the airport. We will take you to the international airport punctually before departure. We hope you had a nice trip and wish you a good flight.
