Good morning! We’re transferring to the airport to board one a stunning 45-minute mountain flight through the Himalayas. From Lukla (2,652 m), we trek downhill toward the Dudh Koshi (Milky River) – a raging river that flows from the glacier of the highest mountains. This fairly easy and well-marked trail meanders around the fields of potatoes and wheat, passing through many traditional villages to reach Phakding. After about three hours of trekking, we’ll spend our first night in Phakding.

We leave for trek to Thyangboche (3,780 m) early in the morning after breakfast following a trail around the ridges for some spectacular views of Ama Dablam. Everest can be clearly seen on the horizon before we descend through splendid rhododendron forests for lunch. After lunch, we cross Dudh Koshi River once again and begin a long winding ascent that takes us to the famous Buddhist monastery of Thyangboche – built in 1912 and considered the spiritual and cultural center of these highlands. The monastery has been recently re-built with the assistance of Sir Edmund Hillary after it was destroyed by fire in 1989. As this area is a devout Buddhist region, the wildlife is unharmed so there is always a possibility that we may see some wild animals such as musk deer, mountain goat, and pheasants in the forest..

plus minus How can I prepare for the trip?

  • Backpack:
  • Your bag should contain water/glasses/jacket/gloves/snacks plus camera.
 
  • Everything else will be in your bag that the porter team will carry about you. You won't see your bag because the porters are much faster than you and they'll get to the place of your stay much before you
 
  • Clothing Bag:
  • When packing the bag, you must know that the weight of the bag must not exceed 15 kilos, according to the regulations or the team will not carry it.
 
  • All your equipment will be in it other than what was mentioned earlier in the item (backpack) remember that you should not carry a heavyweight on your back, so you don't get tired!
 
  • Just get what's necessary. You don't need much equipment. Just follow the list of equipment that was written to you, and you'll be fine
 
  • Packing skill:
  • So, you don't spend much time every morning packing the bag, you can store your equipment with those little facts (airless bags) so you can see what's inside and you don't need to open it every time. This will save you effort every morning
 
  • Sleeping Bag:
  • You will need to put the sleeping bag in the tent when you stay overnight every day
 
  • Hiking Shoes:
  • It's good to have a long ankle boot against water and high quality because you'll wear it every day! Make sure the shoe size is slightly larger than usual size because you will have to wear more than one sock some days.
 
  • Remember to wear them days before the date of travel until they are used to the foot, especially when they are new
 
  • Gloves:
  • Remember that the space between fingers is what keeps your hand warm! Take a slightly larger size than usual
 
  • When gloves are highly fingertip, you won't feel warm
 
  • Socks:
  • Of course, it should be made of wool and not cotton! They call it 3 seasons, similar to those we wear when skiing
 
  • Camera:
  • Since the trip will be exceptional and great your camera will accompany you throughout the trip, we recommend not to bring SLR as it will be heavy and large, bring what you can easily carry. Don't forget to bring extra batteries and put them in socks so they don't run out of power inside
 
  • Hygiene!
  • You also know that getting a hygiene shower is not possible in mountains so it's time to bring wet wipes! :) For cleaning inside the tent, please make sure you bring enough underwear as laundry will also not be available on the mountain.
 
  • Hygiene (personal)!
  • The best thing to bring with you is Dettol wipes or baby wipes. Dettol will be your best new friends on the mountain! Just clear yourself in your tent to renew your activity. Please also make sure to bring your toilet paper.
 
  • Nails:
  • Make sure to cut your nails well so you don't experience pain during the long walk
 
  • BLISTERS:
  • Some people get it from long walking hours. The last thing you want on this trip is a bubble that can make your life miserable when you're there. The best trick we find is "preventive behavior." This means that you envelop your sensitive points, such as heels, designated toes, etc., such as gauze and medical white tape once the journey begins. This will protect those areas from additional friction and get you rid of pimples.
 
  • Sleepwear and shoes:
  • Once you arrive in the camp, you will want to take off the walking shoes and wear something comfortable. We suggest bringing something easy to wear and take off. In case I have to go to the bathroom at night, the last thing you want to do is fumble in the dark and tie the shoe! You may also want to bring comfortable and warm sleepwear
 
  • Pocket Money:
  • You can fetch at least $150 to extract a visa or if you need anything from the airport, this is an estimated amount that may vary from person to person but remember that Tanzania is not an ideal country to use credit cards
 
  • Snack:
 
  • The best snacks you can bring are dates and nuts, will provide you with energy plus their weights are light
 
  • Adapt!
 
  • The journey to reach the top of Africa is a 90% mental journey so bring with you all the positive thoughts and feel free to leave those negative thoughts in your home country! It's also an opportunity to discover yourself again.
