Trip Introduction

Join our super adventure 3 peaks climbing package that includes the three famous peaks in the Everest Region - Island, Lobuche, and Nirekha Peak and also three popular high passes – Kongma La, Cho La pass & Renjo La. The Island Peak (6,189m/20,305ft), originally known as the Imjatse, is perhaps the most popular climbing peak in the Everest region. The Island Peak derives its name owing to its striking location in the middle of the Chhukung valley, like an Island on a sea of ice. Mt. Lobuche (6119m/20,070 ft) climb is a bit more challenging than the Island Peak. And Nirekha peak (4950/1625 ft) is even more technical than Lobuche. Hence, our package has been carefully designed keeping in mind proper acclimatization and gradual ascent. We are sure that the bliss you will experience after scaling three of the most famous Peaks in the Everest region - Island, Lobuche and Nirekha Peak and three popular high passes – Kongma La, Cho La pass & Renjo La would certainly linger in your memory forever.

First, we follow the famous Everest trail via Namche, Tengboche, Digboche and Chukung. After summiting the Island Peak, we retrace our path to Lobuche via Kongma La and visist Everest base Camp. Making the Lobuche Summit, we take the route to Gokyo after crossing the famous Cho La pass. The peak climbing adventure concludes with summiting of Nirekha Peak and we take our  path to Lukla via Renjo La.

After breakfast we travel to Himalayan Glacier’s office. There will be a short meeting which will familiarize us with the entire trip. Today we also get to know our climbing leader as well as fellow climbers. The climbing leader will check our equipment(s) to make sure for one last time to get us ready for our adventure. This step will also ensure that if any equipment is found faulty we have the rest of the day to fix it or find an equipment that works.. We can spend the rest of the day in leisure. Overnight in Kathmandu.

Day 03:  Fly to Lukla (2,800m/9,184ft) then trek to Phakding (2,652m/8,700ft): 40 min flight, 3-4 hours trek

After breakfast, we will be taken to the domestic terminal of TIA for an early morning flight to Lukla. After flying above the breathtaking green and white mountains, we reach Tenzing-Hillary Airport at Lukla. This is one of the most beautiful air routes in the world culminating in a landing on a hillside surrounded by high mountains. Upon our arrival at Lukla, we meet our other crew members and after some packing and arrangements, we start our trek through the prosperous village of Lukla until we reach Phakding. To assist in acclimatization, we only have a short hike today. However, if interested in additional activities, we can take a side trip to a nearby monastery. Overnight in Phakding.

Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
Day 04: Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3,440m/11,283ft): 5-6 hours

After breakfast, we walk through beautiful pine forests and then along Dudh Koshi River ending our nature-filled journey at Namche Bazaar. After walking for almost over an hour, we come across the glistening Mt. Thamserku (6,608m) on our right and also experience the serenity of pine, fir and juniper forests throughout our journey. If the weather is clear, we may even catch a glimpse of Mt. Everest peering over the Lhotse-Nuptse ridge. We continue walking until we reach the entrance to Sagarmatha National Park, Namche Bazaar, the gateway to Mt. Everest and main trading centre of this region. On that day we cross five suspension bridges, the last one also known as the Hillary Bridge being the highest. It is an uphill walk from Hillary Bridge to Namche Bazaar. Overnight in Namche Bazaar.

Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
Day 05: Namche Bazaar (3,440 m/11,283 ft): Acclimatization

This is the day set aside for acclimatization. Health experts recommend that we stay active and move around even during the rest day instead of being idle. There are a few options set aside for this day. We can either stroll around Namche’s quaint villages or come in contact with the Sherpa people and their rich culture, or we can hike up to the Everest View Hotel and enjoy an up-close view of the mighty Everest. 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.

For trekkers who want to hike for a little longer, a hike to Khumjung village (5-6 hours) may also be an option. While in the village we can visit the Edmund Hillary School and Khumjung Monastery (a monastery famous for housing the head of the Yeti!). Overnight in Namche Bazaar.

Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
Day 06: Namche Bazaar to Tengboche (3,870m/12,694ft): 5- 6 hours

After breakfast, we trek towards Tengboche. It is an easy walk from Namche to Phunki. Upon reaching Phunki, we ascend towards Tengboche, a village that houses the very famous Tengboche monastery which is the largest monastery of the Everest region. Located amidst the Sagarmatha National Park (a UNESCO World Heritage Site of "outstanding universal value”), it is draped with the panoramic 360-degree view of the Himalayas, including Mt. Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam and Thamserku. The monastery opens at 3pm so we reach it by three. And, if we are lucky, we might just be able to witness a religious ceremony. Overnight in Tengboche.

Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
Day 07:  Tengboche to Dingboche (4,360 m/14,300 ft): 5-6 hours

We visit the beautiful Tengboche Monastery in the morning and take pictures of the amazing landscape surrounding it. Then we begin our trek by walking through lush forests of birch, conifers and rhododendrons on an easy path. This picturesque trail then dips down to Debuche, crossing the Imja River before climbing up to Pangboche. (We can either walk in the upper or lower Pangboche trails). We are most likely to choose the upper Pangboche trail as it provides a more pristine view of the Himalayas. We also visit the Pangboche monastery. From here, the walk is fairly moderate as we enter the Imja Valley. The valley gradually unfolds as we approach the confluence of the Lobuche River. We descend into the river and begin the climb up to Dingboche. Overnight in Dingboche.

Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
Day 08: Dingboche to Chhukung (4,730m/15,518ft): 3-4 hours
Dingboche is a summer settlement and here the great peaks of Ama Dablam, the ridge of Nuptse-Lhotse, Tawache and Chalotse surround us. We begin today’s trek to Chhukung by walking through stone-walled fields, Imja Khola valley before walking in glacier moraines. On our walk, we will be surrounded by Lhotse and Ama Dablam mountains. Later, beyond Bibre village we see Island Peak soaring above us. The trail ahead is intersected by icy streams. We reach Chhukung, a small settlement in about half an hour from Bibre. From here, directly across the valley is the fantastic Ama Dablam and the Amphu Labsa mountains. Overnight in Chhukung.
Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
Day 09: Acclimatization: Climb Chhukung Ri (5,546m) and trek back to Chhukung: 3 – 4 hours
Today is another day set aside for acclimatization. Climbing Chhukung Ri should help our body adjust to the high altitude. Chhukung Ri is a peak located directly above the Chhukung village. The climb to Chhukung Ri involves some easy scrambling near the summit. From the top, we can look directly across the valley for a fantastic view of Ama Dablam and Amphu Labsa peaks. We descend back to Chhukung to spend the night.
Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
Day 10: Chhukung to Island Peak Base camp (5,200m/17,060ft): 3-4 hours
The trek to Island Peak Base Camp is on a fairly steep trail. First, we climb south then turn east to the main line of the valley. We then walk on a winding path below the southern flank of the moraine from the Lhotse Glacier. Next, we continue walking on a pleasant trail along a streamside. The route to the Amphu Lapcha lies to the southeast. A crisscross route through the Imja and Lhotse glacier moraines leads to a wide valley flanking the SW side of Island Peak. Overnight at Island Peak Base Camp.
Day 11: Pre-Climb training on Island Peak Base Camp
We begin our pre-climb training today after breakfast. Our guides will provide training on peak climbing techniques and the proper ways of using climbing gears such as the ice axe, climbing boots and crampons, harness, ascender, etc. The training will also include using ropes to go up and down. Although it is not mandatory to have prior training for Island Peak climbing, we strongly believe that some training experience will boost your confidence and climbing skills to increase the chances of scaling the summit as well as to fully enjoy the experience. Usually we will be climbing on rock surface for up to around 5770m. After that, we climb on ice and use ropes when necessary. However, the use of the rope and the length depends upon the season and the crevasses. We can spend the rest of the day hiking to high camp and back or resting for the next day’s climb. Overnight at the base camp.
Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
Day 12: Island Peak Base Camp to Summit and back to Base Camp (5,600m/18,372ft) 10-12 hours

We wake up early today at around 12 to 1 am and have our breakfast before beginning our climb. It is important we reach the summit before noon because in the afternoon the strong winds in the highlands might become a barrier for a successful summit. The trail moves up beyond the base camp for several hundred meters before striking off the steep hillside. Initially sandy, the path soon turns to grass before becoming boulder strewn. As we climb up the hill, we will see that the slope narrows and the trail enters a steep rock channel. We climb the rock gully. This is not difficult, but there are several short rock steps to climb before we emerge on the right side of the gully. The route then follows a ridgeline, which leads to an exhilarating and exposed traverse onto the snout of the summit glacier. The guides will fix a rope when required. A steep snow slope leads us onto the summit ridge. Both fixed rope and man rope will be used during the climb for safety. We use fix rope after successfully climbing on rock. The length of the rope will usually be of 350m. However, the length depends on the time of the season and the crevasses

There are two newly formed crevasses which are approximately 3 and 4 meters long. We will be using ladders to cross them. After enjoying the summit views, and taking pictures, we descend all the way to Island Peak Base Camp where some of our crew is waiting for us. We celebrate on our successful Island Peak climb.
Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
Day 13: Island Peak Base Camp to Chhukung: 3 – 4 hrs
Today’s walk will be a much easier as we descend to the lower altitudes same way we have walked up. Tomorrow we are going to cross first high passes of this trip. Thus, we prepare ourselves physically and mentally to accomplish it. Overnight in Chhukung.
Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
Day 14: Chhukung to Lobuche (4940m/16,210ft) via Kongma La pass (5535m/18,159ft): 6 - 7 hours

We begin today’s trek very early in the morning to reach the highest part of the entire trip which is Kongma La pass. We can either take a trail over a hill which is to the northwest of Chhukung over the Nuptse Glacier moraines or we can walk back to Bibre and trek on the trail above the Niyang Khola. The top of the pass is marked by cairns and Buddhist prayer flags. The final descent from the pass is the most difficult part of today’s journey. After climbing the moraine on the far side, the trail turns north through Khumbu Glacier which takes us to Lobuche. Overnight at Lobuche.

Note: Trekking through Kongma La is optional. If we do not want to tackle the strenuous Kongma La pass today and want to go directly to Lobuche from Chhukung, we can do that too.
Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
Day 15: Lobuche to Gorak Shep (5170 m/16,961ft), visit Everest Base Camp (5364 m/17,594 ft): 6-7 hours

Our trail moves along the lateral moraine of the Khumbu Glacier. Ahead on the trail we see the crest of the north ridge of Everest along with Pumori, Mahalangur, Lingtern, Khumbutse, Nuptse and other mountains. A small ascent takes us to Thangma Riju. From here we admire panoramic views of the Himalayan vista. We ascend on a steep trail up to the top of Changri Glacier.  As we reach Gorak Shep, we are surrounded by the Himalayas. After resting for a short while, we continue to Everest Base Camp. We pass through rocky dunes, moraines and streams before reaching the base camp of the world’s tallest mountain, Everest. From here we admire Nuptse, Khumbuste and Pumori mountains. We trek back to Gorak Shep and spend the night.

Alternatively, we can visit Kala Patthar today instead of the next day as many believe that the sunset view from Kala Patthar is more stunning than the sunrise view.
Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
Day 16: Gorak Shep to Kala Patthar (5545 m/18,192 ft), then to Lobuche (4940 m/16,207 ft): 8 - 9 hours

We start our trek to Kala Patthar early in the morning in order to catch remarkable views of the first light of the sun shining on Mt. Everest. However, we need to be prepared for trekking in the dark and cold temperature (the temperature varies according to the season). Furthermore, there is always a chance for chilly winds which are quite common. As we continue our trek, familiar peaks such as Lingtren, Khumbutse, Changtse, Everest and Nuptse tower above us. After several hours of ascent, we will be on the top of Kala Patthar. The close-up view of Mt. Everest and other Himalayan peaks from Kalapathar is amazing. We enjoy the stunning Himalayan vista and descend to Lobuche where we stay the night.

Those participants who will visit Everest Base Camp today will have an early breakfast to start early as Everest base camp hike takes longer than the hike to Kala Patthar. After returning to Gorak Shep, both the groups will have lunch together.
Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
Day 17: Lobuche to High Camp (5,400m/17,712ft): 3-4 hours
From Lobuche, we trek towards Lobuche base camp. After walking some distance on relatively flatter plane, the path to the Lobuche Base Camp gets steeper and rocky. We move forward along the Lobuche Glacier while enjoying great views of Ama Dablam, Cholatse, Pokalde, Thamserku, Kantega and other Himalayas. From the base camp, we continue on a rocky moraine path to reach the High Camp. After reaching there, we set up our camp, take lunch and rest. For the climb, we usually will be climbing on rock surface for up to around 5770m. After that, we climb on ice and use ropes when necessary. However, the use of the rope and the length depends upon the season and the crevasses. Fixed rope is used most of the times whereas man rope is used when required.  The climbing leaders will decide what is best for when. After reaching High Camp we could take rest for the whole day or prepare ourselves for the next day summit.  Overnight in Lobuche East High Camp.
Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
Day 18: Lobuche High Camp to Summit (6119m/20,070 ft) and back to High Camp: 8-10 hours
We wake up early today at around 12 to 1 am and have our breakfast before beginning our climb. It is important we reach the summit before noon because in the afternoon the strong winds in the high lands might become a barrier for a successful summit.  We will most likely be walking on rock surface up to around 5700m after which we climb on ice. We use both fixed rope and man rope as per our leader’s instruction. The climbing surface as well as the length of the rope and depends on the time of the season and the crevasses. Lobuche East offers more panoramic views of the mountains than any other trekking peak. From the summit, you get to enjoy magnificent views of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Cholatse, Pumori, and many more. We spend some time at the summit celebrating and taking pictures, then we get back to the High Camp again for an overnight stay.
Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
Day 19: High Camp to Dzongla (15, 939 ft): 2 – 3 hours
Today we descend downwards after the successful summit of second peak in the row aiming to reach Dzongla. After 15 minute we cross through Yak playing fields. We get to see many camphor trees in this route. Similarly, we can see magnificent view of Awi Peak. Walking down wards for some hours we finally reach Dzongla.  Overnight at Dzongla.
Day 20: Dzongla to Nirekha Base Camp (4950/1625 ft) via Cho La pass (5368m/17,611 ft): 6 - 7 hours
As we gain height, the Cho La Lake begins to appear and the Ama Dablam presides over a range of mountains on the south and Cholatse soars on the west. Climbing the incline is not easy; it is steep, but made worse by boulders over some of which we will have to scramble. The final climb to the Cho La can be a little tricky as the trail curves round a crevasse. The top of the pass is marked by prayer flags and cairns.  From here we take right turn and walk slight steep around two hours to Nirekha Base Camp. Scenery of majestic peaks on all directions is breathtaking. Overnight in Nirekha Base Camp.
Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
Day 21: Rest day and prepare for Nirekh peak climbing
Today we rest whole day as we have walked for many days and even climbed two peaks successfully in a hope to summit final peak too. We already have ice climbing experience so pre –training is not required. However you can walk to glacier on your own.
Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
Day 22: Nirekha Base Camp to High Camp (5300m/17385ft): 3 -4 hrs
After a full day rest we start our aim towards Nirekha High Camp. We walk on flatter snow earlier and later slight steep walk to High Camp. We get to see panoramic view of mountains like Makalu, Aba Dhablam, Kangchung, Baruntse. Cholatse, Lobuche East, Lhotse and Everest too. Overnight in high camp.
Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
Day 23: Summit Nirekha Peak (6159 m/20201 ft) and back to Base Camp: 5 -6 hrs
Our ultimate adventure is today. This peak is a bit technical than the earlier peaks which we have summited successfully. We start early in the morning to climb Nirekha peak but it all depends on the weather condition too. From the top you will see magnificent views of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Tawache, Cholatse, Pumori, Changri and more. After a safe and successful trip to the top we safely make our way down and on the same day we walk down to Base Camp.
Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
Day 24: Base Camp to Gokyo Lakes (4800m/15,580 ft): 3 -4 hrs

We are heading to beautiful Gokyo Lakes today. Today we ascend slippery path. Scenery of majestic peaks on all directions is breathtaking. Although long, the path leading down to Thangnak is not difficult.  Our trail brings us to the edge of the Ngozumpa glacier, which is the longest glacier in Nepal. Reaching the other side of the glacier, we see the second Gokyo Lake on the series of six lakes. A short distance away is the third Gokyo Lake. On the edge of this lake stands the Gokyo Village where we spend the night.

Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
Day 25: Rest day in Gokyo: Climb Gokyo Ri (5357m/17,575 ft), tour 4th and 5th Gokyo lakes: 3 - 4 hours
We climb Gokyo Ri today and enjoy views of the incredible mountain vista. We can also tour the fourth Gokyo Lake today which is only 3km north of the Gokyo Village. Next, continue trekking to the 5th lake. The view from ‘Scoundrel's Viewpoint’, located at the edge of the 5th lake, is astonishing. Cho-Oyu, Gyachung Kang, Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, and Makulu mountains and the huge Ngozumba Glacier are ours to admire. We trek back to Gokyo and spend the night.
Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
Day 26: Gokyo to Lumde (4368 m/14328 ft) via Renjo La Pass (5360m/17585 ft): 7 - 8 hours
We start the day early in the morning to complete the long day’s trek ahead. Our trail moves alongside Dudh Pokhari (lake) for a while. We walk for around two hours before descending towards the Renjo La pass. On the way we are rewarded with extravagant views of the Himalayan and Rolwaling ranges and others. Views from the Renjo La pass are much like that from Gokyo Ri with the third Gokyo Lake and Gokyo Village beneath the gray smear of the Ngozumpa Glacier. We also get outstanding views of Mt. Everest from the top of the pass. Continuing on from the pass, our trail winds down a stone staircase and then moves over a loose scree to reach the south bank of Angladumba Tsho Lake. The prescence of ice on the trail while descending down can make our descent a bit hazardous. Along the way we see Relama Tsho and Renjo Lake. We walk down a narrow valley clogged with giant boulders to Lumde. Overnight in Lumde.
Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
Day 27: Lumde to Namche Bazaar
After walking almost for an hour from Lumde we are at Marlung on the east bank of the Bhote Koshi River.The descent from Marulung to Thame follows a traditional route used for centuries by the Tibetan traders. We cross the Bhote Koshi River and descend to Taranga. The trail continues to descend and we cross two bridges before reaching Thame. Overlooking Thame is its famous Gompa situated on a hill to the west.  From here, we descend gradually on a trail that passes through a few small villages before reaching Namche Bazaar which is probably the biggest town in the Everest region. Overnight in Namche Bazaar.
Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
Day 28: Namche Bazaar to Lukla: 6 - 7 hours
We begin our trek with a descent. As we continue our trek, we cross several bridges over the fast flowing Dudh Koshi River and its tributaries.  Now the trail has become more level and natural. On our trek we enjoy walking on open plains, through rhododendron and pine forests and enjoy distant views of the snow covered peaks. We walk through Sherpa villages noticing their impressive faith in Buddhism and the culture of prayer stones and prayer flags. After reaching Lukla, we stretch those sore legs and recall the experiences of the last couple of weeks. Our long trek to the mountain and its high passes ends today. Overnight in Lukla.
Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner

Accommodations

We will be staying at Hotel Moonlight in Kathmandu and best available tea-houses during the trek. We provide attached bath-rooms in major towns like Lukla, Namche Bazaar, however teahouses/lodges in higher altitudes only have shared washing and toilet facilities.For tent accomodations, we provide 4-season sleeping bag and foam mattress. All accomodations will be on twin-shared basis. Single supplement can be made available with an additional payment of USD 450. However, we like you to understand the fact that there are several places that do not allow single room accommodation in the Everest region. On paying single supplement, you will get single room in Kathmandu but sometimes it is feasible only up to Namche Baazar only during the trek. Above Namche Bazaar single accommodation is not always feasible.

Meals

Freshly cooked meals on full board basis will be provided through the teahouses during trekking. Each day dinner and breakfast will be provided in the same lodge you spend the night. Lunch will be fixed on a teahouse in pleasant surrounding. and freshly cooked hygienic meals are served by our trained cook during the climbing section. Three meals (Nepali, Sherpa, Tibetan, Continental, Italian and Indian cuisine) will be provided from the camp according Himalayan Glacier menu during climbing session.
