Overview

Discover the land of Sherpas through the eyes of Mystic Himalaya Trekking. Explore the land of mysticism where the power of Khumbila (the powerful Khumbu God) blesses this land of Khumbu valley with all greatness and prosperity. It is believed, at one time Guru Rimpoche foresaw the difficulties, Tibetans will have to face in the future and protected this land for the Tibetan refugees. The cool breeze of the Himalayas, fluttering of prayer flags, the spinning of prayer wheels and a very distinctive of incense aroma covers the air every morning and evening with a Buddhist prayer ‘OM MANI PADME HUM‘dedicated to the God of compassion will surely deliver a transcendental experience that will never be erased from your mind. Our itinerary gives you a great opportunity to absorb local culture in a short period of time.

Experience the rich Sherpa culture, visiting well ornate Tengboche monastery and witnessing spectacular mountain views including Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam and many more,   all in a short period of time.

Arrangements will  be made for the distribution of your kit bag, sleeping bag and down jacket in the early evening and the trek briefing will be delivered.

Welcome dinner is organized at 7 pm in one of the traditonal Nepali restaurants and this is a great opporttunity to get acquainted with the fellow group members before the trip. Overnight at Kathmandu.(Dinner)

We take a bus / car to the domestic terminal of Kathmandu Airport for the 30 minutes flight to Lukla. As we land we become struck by the scale of huge peaks that surround the village which is only a taste of what is to come. We will have time to explore the village while the Sherpa crew load your trekking luggages. To assist with acclimatization, we allow 2 days for the walk up to Namche Bazaar. It is a ver short walk today only 2 and half hours to Phakding. Overnight at Phakding.(Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner)

We continue trekking along the banks of the Dudh Kosi, crossing this majestic river many times on exciting suspension bridges laden with prayer flags. We meet many porters from the south ferrying supplies to Namche Bazaar. The trail keeps close to the river valley and is lined with beautiful blue pine and rhododendron forest that is very spectacular in the spring months when the flowers are in bloom. We cross the Dudh Kosi at Benkar where there are tantalizing glimpses of the snow peaks Kusum Kangaru and Thamserku. From here it is only a short walk to Monjo where we arrive in time for lunch. After lunch we pass through the gates of Sagarmatha National Park. We will then cross the confluence of the Dudh Kosi and the Bhote Kosi on a high sespension bridge and climb steeply for about two hours to reach Namche Bazaar. This is a prosperous trading town and the capital of the Khumbu region. In the past many Tibetan traders use to cross the near by Tibetan border  and sell their stuff at Namche market. Now the market is only limited for the local merchants. From Namche just across the valley to the east stand the peaks of Thamserku and Kangtega, both very impressive mountains. Overnight at Namche. (Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner)

We will spend a day in Namche Bazaar resting and allowing our bodies to become acclimatized to the altitude of 3,450 m. Namche is a colorful village with many wonderful and interesting shops and vendors, fabulous food, and stunning views of the surrounding mountains. An early hike to Everest View Hotel, before the clouds move in, will reward climbers with a spectacular Himalayan views of Mount Everest, Lhotse, and the beautiful Mount Ama Dablam. On your way down, you can visit the Sherpa museum that houses and exhibit on traditional Sherpa lifestyle and a fabulous photography displayed by a local Nepalese naturalist. One room highlights the rich Sherpa culture and the other room exibits the climbing history and displays the pictures of all the mountaineers especially of those who have climbed Everest. After visiting the museum we return back to our lodge. Overnight at Namche Bazaar. (Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner)

From Namche, the well - worn Everest trail contours around the side of the valley high above the Dudh Kosi. As we follow the path, we will get our first really good views of the great peaks of the Khumbu ;Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and Ama Dablam. Passing by several villages and numerous tea shops we will cross the Dudh Kosi River and make a steep climb to Tengboche monastery. Tengboche is the spiritual center for the Khumbu, a training center for new monks. The Rimpoche (incarnate Lama) of Thyangboche resides here and the area is considered holy, nothing may be haunted or killed. With the treasures of Ama Dablam and Mount Everest in the background, the spirituality and scenic value of the site never fails to impress. We will visit the monastery and after that we descend down to Debuche. Overnight at Debuche (Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner)

In the morning we will visit the nunery at Debuche. After visiting the nunery a short climb above Debuche through beautiful rhododendron trees brings us to Tengboche monastery. This beautiful monastery is built on the ridge top of Tengboche hill. It is at this place, at one time, Lama Sanga Dorjee blessed that there will be a very big monastery in the future. As a result of that we see it now a very beautiful monastery. We will have some time to spend taking pictures at Tengboche and after that we descend down to the valley bottom cross Dudh Kosi river and climb to Sanasa village. From Sanasa onwards the trail is pretty much undulating. Lots of photo opportunities. On the way we will pass by two beautiful stupas, one of the stupas was build by Sir Tenging Norgays grandson Tasi Tenjing.

Namche Bazaar have lots of bakeries which is worth trying on your way back down. Overnight at Namche. (Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner)

What goes up must come down, today it follows in our itinerary. The first section of the walk is descending all the way down to the valley bottom. The view looks something quite different on your way back down. Lots of photo opportunities but we strongly advise that you feet must stop when you want to take a picture or enjoy the views.

Nepal Poon hill trek and city tour

For anyone considering doing a Nepal tour, we highly recommend Binoy Rai, the owner of Mystic Himalaya Trekking and Expedition. We were really impressed by the efficiency, courtesy and the caring attitude demonstrated by Binoy in handling all our questions in such an easy manner. We highly recommend them for any future travelling prospects.

EBC 2018 – Amazing

I completed the Everest Base Camp trek with my wife and two great friends in October 2018. The trip was amazing with some of the best scenery on the planet. The Nepalese people are wonderful and so welcoming to visitors. Our trip and itinerary was perfectly put together by Binoy and the team at Mystic Himalaya and the trek superbly guided by Chogyal. This was my second EBC trek organized by Binoy and we’re already planning our return in 2020 to explore the Annapurna region. I highly recommend Mystic Himalaya Trekking and look forward to my next trek with them.

Amazeballs

After my husband's 12 years of incessant nagging, I finally agreed to trek to Everest Base Camp. Having kept in contact with Binoy from his last trek 16 years ago, we had the privilege of trekking with Mystic Himalaya. The professionalism and care shown by the Mystic team was outstanding. From the moment we were picked up from the airport, to the moment we were dropped back, we were completely taken care of. Everything was so well organised, and our trekking crew, Chogyal, Pemba, Buddhi and Sujan were fantastic, every step of the way. We will definitely be back.

Wonderful trip to Nepal

We recently went on a trek and tour with Mystic Himalaya Trekking. It was one of the most adventurous and fun trips we have ever been on. One of the owners and our trekking guide named Binoy was the absolute best. I can’t even begin to say how informative he was about the area and how he attended to our every need. He has his own personal crew that hauled our bags and they cooked all our meals. They were so delicious. I would recommend anyone considering going on a trek to Nepal to check them out. I can’t imagine anyone else could be better than they were. Thanks for a memorable and amazing trip.

Absolutely the best Nepal Guides

My son and I had the privilege of trekking with Pranoy and Pemba in the Mustang district, and it was an amazing experience. What sets the Mystic Himalaya experience above other treks is the depth of cultural knowledge and history that the guides have to offer. In addition to breathtaking scenery, we got a fascinating look at the history, architecture, and culture of that region, presented by a guide who is articulate and very well-educated in his field. And let's talk about logistics. We managed to hit the tail end of the monsoon season and got a LOT of rain. With limited time (only one week), our Plan A was to fly to Jomsom and start trekking there. Since planes weren't flying (and didn't for 3 more days), Pranoy got us a driver. We drove for a day and were halted by a massive landslide. Pranoy came up with a new itinerary, and we got some spectacular hiking on our way to Jomsom. With each new "obstacle," Pranoy came up with a new plan and we had a superb trek. We were joking that we went through Plan A, Plan B, Plan C, etc. and were on Plan E by the end. Every bit of it was gorgeous and a lot of fun! With all of those changes, we felt safe and extremely well cared-for. Food was excellent -- supervised and sometimes prepared by Pemba. Accommodations were very comfortable and exceeded expectations. Best of all, Pranoy stayed in constant communication with locals and other guides to ensure our safety every step of the way. With this team, you are working with real professionals that have guided for National Geographic. I wouldn't trek with anyone else -- they are the best!
