Environment in Everest region

The mountain of the Khumbu are so Large that they create their own local climate. As you climb through the hills, mixed deciduous forest and scattered rice terraces give way to pine forest, then rhododendrons, then scrub junipers, before finally the only vegetation is low alpine shrubs and grasses. As you walk , scan the skies and the under growth for golden eagle and the spectacular Himalayan monal ( Damphe or impeyan pheasant ) with its regal, shimmering green blue and purple plumage.

In forested area around Namche Bazaar, Thame, Phortse, and tengboche, keep your eye peeled for Himalayan tahr and musk deer often spotted beside trails early in the morning. You may also hear the strange, hoarse call of the muntjak, or barking deer. The predators of the Himalaya are rarely seen but they are out there – the khumbu is home to both leopards and snow leopards.


When to trek ?

It is theoretically possible to trek in the Khumbu year round, but flights are frequently cancelled in winter and during the monsoon because of the poor visibility at the luckla airport. The best weather is in autumn when the skies are clear and temperature at higher altitude are more bearable. How ever the competition for the seat on planes and bed space in lodges can be intense. Spring is a calmer time to visit though cloud and rain become more frequent in the build up to the monsoon.The most serious obstacle to trekking in winter is the cold. Days can be perfectly comfortable,but the mercury plumments as soon as the sun sinks behind the mountain. At some time during the season from October to march there is certain to be a storm or two that will blanket the country side with snow.

Those who lack good stamina, physical fitness, those who drink a lot and smoke will likely to suffer altitude sickness.
Mild and common symptoms include headaches (also a symptom of dehydration), low appetite, and restless sleep. More moderate symptoms include vomiting, fatigue, and diarrhoea. Many compare altitude sickness to the sensations of having a hangover. Severe symptoms include blue lips and fingernails, severe difficulty breathing, poor coordination, fatigue, and drowsiness.

Day 01: Arrival in Kathmandu And Transfer To Hotel.

Upon your arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport, the airport representatives from “Magic Expedition” will welcome you and transfer you to the hotel in Kathmandu. In the evening, we complete office formalities. Your accommodation will be at some Standard Hotel in Kathmandu on Breakfast base.

Day 02: Flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, then trek to Phakding (2652m): 3-4 Hours

After having the breakfast in the morning, we get transferred to the domestic terminal of the Kathmandu Domestic Airport to catch our scheduled morning flight to Lukla. Lukla is the starting point of Everest Base Camp Trekking. After an adventurous 30 minute scenic flight above the breathtaking green and white Himalayas, we land on the Tenzing-Hillary Airport at Lukla. Then we meet our porters and other crew members and start Everest Base Camp Trekking, after some packing arrangements. After a few hours of walk, we reach Phakding. We only have a short hike today to assist the proper acclimatization. However, if you are interested, you can also take a side trip to a nearby monastery. We stay overnight at local guesthouse.

Day 03: Trek from Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3440m): 5-4 Hours

This is the second day of your Everest Base Camp Trekking; today, we walk through a beautiful forest of pine. The walk leads us along the bank of the Dudhi Koshi River through many suspension bridges. Hillary Suspension Bridge is one of the famous suspension bridges we will be crossing today. En route, we witness the wonderful views of Mount Thamserku (6618m). We pass through the settlement of Benkar and Monjo and eventually arrive at the check post and entrance to Sagarmatha National Park. Before reaching Namche, we also pass through the last village of Jorsale. Our trail further ascends through the forests and bridges until we reach the confluence of the Dudh Koshi and Bhote Koshi Rivers. We get the first sight of Mount Everest over the Lhotse and Nuptse ridge just after a final steep ascent for about two hours. To reach Namche, we still have to walk for about an hour and a half further. Namche Bazaar is the gateway of Everest Base Camp Trekking, also the main trading center of the Everest region. We stay overnight at guesthouse in Namche.

Day 04: Namche: Acclimatization and Rest Day

Acclimatization and Rest Day According to the Health Experts, we need to stay active and moving during the rest days instead of being idle. So, we either spend the day taking a day hike to Thame or visiting Khunde or relaxing and exploring the Namche Bazaar itself. Actually, Namche Bazaar is the main center of the Khumbu Region and has many Government Offices, Internet Cafes, ATMs, Restaurants, Shops and other amenities. Our guides will take you to the Tourist Visitor Center near the Headquarter of Sagarmatha National Park, where you can observe an assortment of things which are related to the First Everest Climbers and Sherpa Culture. You will also get to learn about various flora and fauna in Everest Region.

Day 05: Namche Bazar - Khumjung and return
This day is reserved for acclimatization and a very slow ascent into thin air. After breakfast you will start the ascent towards Khumjung. The trail ascends above Namche Bazar and passes through Syangboche (3720m) – this is where the local airport is located. From a hill top above the airport, you will get your first views of Taboche Peak (6 367m), Lhotse (8 414m), Peak- 38 and Ama Dablam (6856m). On arrival at Khumjung (3 780m), you could visit the Hillary School before stopping for lunch at one of the tea houses ‐ the walk takes about 3 hours. After lunch you will continue ascending the foot path to Khunde (3 840m), here you could visit the local hospital before the 2 hour ascent back to Namche Bazar. This day is physically demanding at times and you should be prepared as the weather is very unpredictable. Namche Bazaar is known as the gateway of the Everest Region, visit the local museum where you can see the traditional custom of the Sherpa peoples. You will spend a second night in Namche. Overnight at guesthouse, inclusive of full board meals

Day 06: Trek to Tengboche (3860m) 5 hrs
The flat and easy trail leads towards the view of Mt. Everest, then descends deep into the Dudh Kosi Valley at Pungki Thanka; from here it ascends the right flank of the Dudh Kosi valley to Tengboche Monastery (3860m). It is the spiritual center of the Khumbu; the climb is long, but more than adequately compensated by views of Mt. Amadablam and on a clear day, views of Mt. Everest and its surrounding peaks.
