  • Day 01:Arrival at Kathmandu Upon your arrival at the Kathmandu airport, you will be greeted by a representative from Day Tours Nepal and transfer to your hotel. Welcome drinks upon arrival at the hotel, free time until 6 pm. Evening welcome dinner in a traditional Nepali Restaurant with authentic Nepali cuisine and cultural program.Overnight in Kathmandu Hotel.
  • Day 02:Kathmandu City Sightseeing and Trek Preparation. After breakfast proceed our short guided sightseeing tour at the Swayambhunath Temple. After
    Swoyambhunath temple, we will visit another UNESCO World Heritage sites Patan Durbar Square, and
    the land of Lord Shiva (Pashupatinath), while sightseeing we will stop for Yoga and meditation. We will focus in Pashupatinath (shiva temple) for yoga and meditation. In the evening trekking guide will check your hiking gears and help you to get any gears for this Everest Base Camp Yoga Hiking Retreat. Yoga instructor will be with joining with us entire day.
  • Day 03:Fly to Lukla and Trek to Phakding (2,652m), 3 hours of walk Wake Up early morning to take a flight to Lukla, you will receive a packed breakfast. From the Kathmandu
    domestic airport, we will take 40 - 45 minutes flight to Lukla (9,186ft). Enjoy one of the most beautiful air
    routes in the world on a hillside surrounded by mountainous peaks. We will meet the rest of our crew
    members at the Lukla airport, a gateway destination from where our trek begins. A gentle walk to Phakding
    village through Chaurikharka village, Mt. Khumbila, and monastery. Evening yoga and meditation season.
  • Day 04:Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3,440m), 6 hours walk. This is the day that you hear the most is the trek into Namche Bazaar, walking through a beautiful pine
    forest Dudh Koshi River and go on passing Chumoa to Monjo, and the entrance to Everest National Park.
    Then after crossing a suspension bridge, we pass Jorsale village and walk alongside the Dudh Koshi and
    Bhote Koshi rivers. The path to Namche is very well traveled so you'll continually come across locals, other
    tourists and then continue traffic of Yaks and porter. It is infamous for its long consistent steep inclines
    uphill brings us to the prime heartland of Sherpa village - Namche Bazaar. At one hour’s distance to
    reaching Namche Bazaar, we can view the sights of Mt. Everest and Mt. Lhotse. Overnight in Namche
    Bazaar.
  • Day 05:Acclimatization, hike to Everest view hotel (3,900m) 3 - 4 hours walk. There are plenty of things to do around Namche Bazaar, we wake up to another spectacular morning and
    view from our room and sun rose of the breathtaking mountains. Let us make you clear something up that is
    a big misunderstanding about the Acclimatization day. Acclimatization day is not a rest day, it is something
    completely different so don’t think that after the huge climb of getting into Namche Bazaar you’ll spend
    today lazing around the lodges or shopping in local stores. Our team will take you to explore the real charm
    of Namche Bazaar. So after breakfast, we will start the gentle hike up to Everest view hotel where we can
    see the views of Mount Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, Kongde and so on. Back to
    Namche.
  • Day 06:Namche Trek to Tengboche (3,870m), 5 hours walk. After breakfast in Namche Lodges, we set off for our next destination Tengboche. A Gentle climb up to the
    Namche top and we will have all the pleasure en route with the majestic views of Mt. Everest, Mt. Nuptse,
    Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Ama Dablam and Thamserku peak. The trail is smooth with few ups and downs up to
    Kyangjuma. We are least bothered about the trail as the majestic views of the Himalayas makes our
    expedition full of excitement. After Kyangjuma the trail is downhill a bit and we will cross the Dudh Kosi
    River and then a gentle climb up to Tengboche. Tengboche is a wonderful place to have scenic views of Mt.
    Everest, Mt. Nuptse and Mt. Ama Dablam. It has the biggest Buddhist monastery called Tengboche Monastery
    (3860m).
  • Day 07:Tengboche Trek to Dingboche (4,410m), 5 hours walk. This is another best place to wake up early morning with the spectacular view of Mountains surrounding you. From the Monastery, you will hear the early morning chanting by the Monks which make your morning blessed and peaceful.l Along the way Mt. Amadablam will be smiling on our right side. We will pass through Imja River, chortens, stupas, small villages, tea houses and people working on their farm. Pretty much
    easier trail and after crossing Pheriche pass a gentle uphill which makes you feel like now you are adjusting to the altitude. Overnight at Dingboche.
  • Day 08:Rest day in Dingboche. We will start hike after breakfast around Dingboche or Guide will decide to take the Chukkung village. Carry water with you and porters will not join for this short hike.
  • Day 09:Dingboche Trek to Lobuche (4,910m), 5 -6 hours walk. Today you might feel some breathing disorder while crossing the Thugla pass due to the altitude but no need to panic. From Dingboche to Thugla trails is gentle but the 1 hr Thugla pass makes you quite tired but after crossing the pass the trail is smooth. We continue our expedition until we reach Lobuche which is our destination for today. We might feel some breathing disorder due to high altitude but still, there is no need to panic. Overnight at guesthouse, inclusive of full board meals.
  • Day 10:Trek to Gorakshep (5,180m) Hike to Everest Base Camp (5,400m) & return to Gorak Shep, 8-9 hours walk. Today the trails to Gorakshep heads through the sidelong moraine of the Khumbu Glacier. On our way to
    Gorakshep, we will see the north ridge of Mt. Everest along with Mt. Pumori, Mt. Mahalangur, Mt. Nuptse
    etc. While climbing the Changri Glacier we have the first glimpse of Kala Patthar (5,545 M). From Lobuche to
    Gorakshep is about 3 hrs walk after reaching to Gorakshep we still continue our trekking expedition to reach
    Everest Base Camp. Appx 3 hrs to reach the Everest Base Camp and almost the trail is Up and Down. Spend
    about an hour to take photos and see the place where the Everest Expedition begins. It's quite tiring day but
    full of excitement and we will be touching the dreaming spot Everest Base Camp, overnight at Gorakshep.
  • Day 11:Gorakshep to Kala Pattar (5,545m) - Gorakshep - Pheriche (4,210m), 8-9 max hours walk. The final height point Kalapattar hike starts early morning to catch the spectacular view of Mt. Everest and
    other Himalayan ranges from Kalapattar. The morning will be cold so we all have to wear warm clothes to
    protect ourselves from the cold. Enjoy the panoramic mountain views and sunrise and this is the best
    memorable morning in your entire Everest Base Camp Trek. After enjoying the morning view we will hike
    back to Gorakshep for breakfast and also trek back to another destination Pheriche. Overnight at Pheriche.

Helpful Tips For Everest Base Camp Yoga Retreat Nepal. 
Always carry Nepalese rupees in small bills on your trek. The amount of care depends on the area and the duration of the trek. A guideline for this will be presented during our trek briefing. The money will only be required for the purchase of soft/hard bottled drinks and souvenirs along the way. Other money and valuables should be kept in a safe deposit box in your hotel in Kathmandu.

Altitude sickness a serious consideration if you are climbing or trekking in Nepal and it is essential that you investigate the causes, symptoms, and treatment of altitude sickness before you travel to Nepal. There are approximately three deaths per year in Nepal from altitude sickness, but with the right precautions, there is no reason why you should become one of these statistics.
Acclimatizations the word used to describe the adjustments your body makes as it ascends. You should adjust your schedule so that you average no more than 400 meters per day of ascent above 3,000 meters. If you fail to allow time for acclimatization, you may develop symptoms of Attitude mountaineering System. The AMS may be mild enough to go away with a days rest or if ignored may lead to death. All that is required to ensure a safe trek is basic awareness of AMS, and a willingness to rest or descend if you develop symptoms. Day Tours Nepal designed itinerary based on elevation.
