DETAILED ITINERARY

Day 01 Arrival in Kathmandu

A member of our staff wearing your name tag will be waiting to greet you as soon as you exit the arrivals area at Tribhuvan International Airport.

After that, you will be driven to your hotel in the heart of the city and assisted with check-in. After a little respite, you have the option of continuing to relax or beginning your exploration of the city.

We will drive to Boudhanath Stupa, the largest Buddhist pilgrimage site in Nepal if you are interested and time permits, where we will have a good time and watch the sunset from one of the rooftop restaurants.

As soon as you enter the stupa’s gate, you’ll experience the serenity and see visitors and pilgrims making a kora, or circumambulation, to the main stupa.

From there, we will take a 15-minute journey to Pashupatinath Temple to attend the evening Aarti, which begins at around 7 o’clock. One of the four most important Hindu monuments in the world,

Pashupatinath Temple is located next to the airport on the banks of the revered Bagmati River. On the opposite side, you can see both an open-air cremation and an aarti ritual.

After walking through Thamel’s streets and returning to the city’s core, we leave you off at your hotel.

Day 02-03 Kathmandu sightseeing & Expedition Preparation

The two days will be spent exploring some of Kathmandu Valley’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites. After a sumptuous breakfast, your tour guide will pick you up from your hotel to begin a full day of escorted sightseeing.

Most of the seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the Kathmandu Valley will be seen by us. If we were able to view Boudhanath and Pashupatinath the day before, we would bypass them and concentrate on the remaining attractions, including Kathmandu Durbar Square, Swayambhunath Temple, Boudhanath Stupa, Patan Durbar Square, Bhaktapur Durbar Square.

One of the main sights in the Kathmandu Valley is Swayambhunath, which is perched atop a hill and offers a panoramic view of the city of Kathmandu and the surrounding high hills.

Nearly 4 kilometers from Thamel, this Buddhist pilgrimage destination is equally popular with Hindus and people of various religions.

One of the most exquisite displays of Nepalese craftsmanship may be found in Lalitpur, the city of beauty, at Patan Durbar Square. Within the compound of the Malla kings’ palaces are several historical and cultural attractions.

The Royal Palace, the Royal Bath, Sundari Chowk, and Krishna Mandir are significant treasures of medieval culture. Similar to this, the royal complex is home to several monuments that date back many centuries.

One of the most well-preserved historical sites in the Kathmandu Valley is Bhaktapur Durbar Square, which is situated in Bhaktapur, also referred to as the “city of devotees.”

The craftsmanship, fine art, and architecture of the magnificent palace complex, temples, and monuments are truly fascinating. The Golden Gate, the Palace with the 55 windows, and the Nyatapola Temple, among other famous landmarks, may be found here.

Kathmandu Durbar Square is a popular tourist attraction in Kathmandu, and it is located in the city’s heart, just a short walk from Thamel.

Due to its historical significance and beautiful Newari architectural design, it is the third durbar square in the valley and a must-see in Kathmandu. The most well-known locations are Kumari Ghar, Kasthamandap, Tajeju Bhawani Mandap, Kaal Bhairav Mandap, and Hanuman Dhoka Museum.

Above all, we’ll finish up the necessary paperwork and start further Pumori Expedition preparations. You can also take a tour through the historic marketplaces in Ason and New Road to see how Nepali markets operate.

Those who are interested can also experience something new by riding in a rickshaw through Thamel’s streets.

The Thamel market has great places to buy or rent hiking and expedition gear, so you can do any last-minute shopping there for the expedition. Before we set out on our excursion tomorrow, enjoy your dinner and have a nice night.

Day 04 Fly to Lukla & Trek to Phakding

Today, we’ll fly to Lukla from Tenzing Norgay Airport, which is regarded as one of the most daring airports in the world.

The primary gateway to the Khumbu Region is Lukla, where we will fly early in the morning on a Twin Otter. You get a breathtaking glimpse of Everest in the distance during this risky and exciting trip.

We will meet the expedition crew in Lukla when we arrive, and we’ll then begin walking to Phakding (2610m).

Phakding, a small settlement on the main commercial route through the region, is located at the bank of the Dudh Koshi River, which drains the entire Khumbu region. We’re going to be in sturdy lodges.

Day 05 Trek to Namche Bazar

We set off on this lovely excursion upstream, following the Dudh Kosi valley. On the first day of the magnificent trek to Mount Pumori, get prepared to be astounded. We will cross and recross the raging Imja Khola as the day goes on using reliable suspension bridges.

The excursion will primarily be on a plain stretch as we will be walking along the banks for the majority of today. But before the day’s walk is over, there will be one more difficult ascent to the Sherpa capital of Namche Bazaar (3440m).

After checking into our cozy lodge, the remainder of the day is free for lounging about or touring the bazaar.

Day 06 Rest day at Namche for acclimatization

Today is the rest day of our trip at €namche Bazaar and during our stay at Namche Bazaar, we will explore the nearby surrounding and explore the vicinity of the place. Similarly, this day is important in the expedition.

During the expedition, there is a lot of hardship. so, it is important When traveling at high altitudes, acclimatization is required. Therefore, to acclimate to the low oxygen levels, we will spend a day at Namche.

We will spend this acclimatization day hiking and relaxing, which will enable fasting acclimation in the altitude location. We will climb Syangboche hill after breakfast (3900m).

The entire Everest region, including Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Kusum Kanguru, Tawache, Kunde, and numerous smaller snow-capped peaks, can be seen from this vantage point.

Additionally, we’ll go to Khumjung, a high Himalayan Sherpa village from which you can overlook the Hillary school. We then go a short distance by foot from Khumjung to the town of Khunde, where we visit the Khunde monastery.

Here, you can witness a clear representation of the Sherpa culture and customs in the area as well as a sculpture of the “Yeti,” about whom you may only have heard rumors.

We will travel back to Namche for an overnight stay after visiting these magnificent viewing places.

Day 07 Trek to Tengboche

Today, we proceed along the Imja Khola’s banks to reach Thyangboche (3867m). Starting the hike requires climbing up a steep hill outside of Namche Bazaar to reach the trail.

To get to the new elevation, though, we must first get beyond that obstacle and continue on the well-maintained trail.

You won’t be disappointed when you get there because of the wonderful settlement that is situated on a ridge beneath the stunning north ridge of the Kang Taiga. The hike’s biggest feature is that practically the whole length of the trail offers views of Mount Everest’s peak.

After our climb for the day, we’ll relax at a hotel close to one of Nepal’s most significant monasteries, which also happens to be the largest in the Khumbu region.

Day 08 Trek to Dingboche

The highest of the ancient, permanent habitations in the valley, Pangboche, is passed as we resolutely make our way towards the seasonal settlement of Dingboche (4350m).

This day’s walk is a little more difficult because there has been a bigger height rise than the previous two days. The hike is completely worthwhile, though, because mountains surround you. At Dingboche, we spend the night in a lodge.

Day 09 Acclimatization in Dingboche /Acclimatization hike to Chhukung

To acclimatize, we will climb a little bit of height today. We start the day by ascending the upper Imja Valley on a hard, rocky trail to Chukung (4730m), which is beneath the magnificent south face of Lhotse. We return to Dingboche to stay at the lodge for a second night after becoming accustomed to climbing at such high altitudes.

Day 10 Trek to Lobuche

Our trail takes us away from Dingboche and downhill to the Pheriche village.

On this day, one of the most breathtaking treks is over a ridge to Dugla and then on to the Khumbu Glacier. After around two hours of hiking from Pheriche, we will reach Dugla at 4,595 meters with a modest wooden bridge spanning the Khumbu glacier river.

At Dugla, we’ll eat lunch before continuing our hour-long ascent. Throughout our trip, we will be treated to breathtaking vistas of Mount Pumori and other lofty mountains west of Everest. Until we get to Lobuche, where we will spend the night, we continue our trek.

Day 11 Trek from Lobuche to Pumori Base Camp

From Lobuche, we travel further today to the Pumori Base Camp. Our Sherpa team will quickly establish a base camp and start preparing for the remainder of the climb up Mount Pumori as we get to the campsite.

Day 12-29 Mount Pumori (7161 m) Climbing period

We’ll spend many days honing our climbing techniques and acclimatizing properly. And on the day of the summit, well acclimatized and with all the appropriate climbing gear, we will tackle numerous technical climbing parts under the guidance and instruction of our experienced climbing specialists.

In consideration of the weather, we make the ascent of Mount Pumori.

The amazing views of Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu, Nuptse, and several other snow-capped high peaks in Nepal’s Khumbu region are our reward for the arduous climb to the summit of Mt. Pumori.

Before returning to base camp via the same trail we took to the top, we’ll spend some quality time at the peak.

Day 30 Trek Back to Pangboche

We pack our possessions today and get ready for the journey back. After breakfast, we depart the Base Camp and start walking back along the same route that leads to Lobuche.

On our way back to Pangboche for the night, our road progressively descends from Lobuche as we travel through the towns of Pheriche and Dingboche.

Day 31 Trek to Namche Bazaar

As we head downhill toward Deboche, we leave Pangboche behind. Before reaching Tyangboche, our trail then ascends for a while through a wonderful pine forest. After that, the trail is flat for a while until we start our gradual descent to Phunke Tenga.

Our trail turns into a somewhat uphill hike as we get closer to Kyangjuma. The journey back to Namche Bazaar, the Sherpa capital, is pleasant from that point on. Feel free to browse the neighborhood stores and souvenir shops in Namche Bazaar in the evening.

Day 32 Trek back to Lukla

We go from Namche Bazaar to Lukla via Monjo on the last day of our trip. Rhododendron, oak, and pine trees line our trail as it descends into a verdant woodland. Following the crests and troughs, we stroll down the Dudh Kosi River’s green banks.

With a slight climb in the terrain that we will follow to our Lukla lodge at the end of the day, we can anticipate a largely downward route to our destination.

The final celebration of our team with beer opening and delectable food. Overnight there.

Day 33 Fly from Lukla to Kathmandu

Today, we get ready for a magnificent early-morning flight from Lukla back to Kathmandu. After landing at the airport in Kathmandu, you will be taken to the hotel.

The discomfort and exhaustion from hiking can also be relieved by visiting a spa or massage facility.

    What to expect?

    Trip Info

    Difficulty Level of Pumori Expedition

     

    Any summit’s difficulty will vary depending on a variety of variables, including the terrain, the climber’s physical condition, the mountaineering techniques used, the climber’s susceptibility to high altitude sickness, the distance to be covered, clothing, and equipment.

    Mt. Pumori is one of the most challenging peaks above 7000 meters when taking into account these common variables and technical difficulties. The tough parts between Camps 1 and 2 and the challenging weather at such a high altitude make the Pumori Expedition challenging as well.

     

    Best time to do Pumori Expedition

     

    The weather in the Himalayas can be erratic and harsh. The best value of time and season must be taken into account when exploring the rough and untamed nature of high altitudes. Expeditions are additionally dangerous adventures. Therefore, that has a set deadline for implementation. Expeditions are typically performed in Nepal during two distinct seasons. Autumn and spring, respectively.

     

    Pumori Expedition in Spring Season

     

    The best time to embark on an excursion in Nepal is in the early spring, between April and May. The weather will be at its most vibrant during this time thanks to the beautiful view of the immense mountain panorama.

    Compared to other times of the year, the wind will not be as fierce and the track will be simpler to follow. Every hill turns crimson and scarlet with rhododendron blooming as wildflowers proliferate, and plants and trees begin to turn green.

    Mountaineers favor the spring because it offers a fantastic perspective of the area, is simpler to access, and has a high success rate.

     

    Pumori Expedition in Autumn Season

     

    Another fantastic time of year to climb peaks is from October through November during the autumnal season. Another fantastic time of year to climb peaks is from October through November during the autumnal season. The second busiest period of the year is now. Temperatures gradually drop after the wet monsoon season, the sky brightens, and the hills begin to turn yellow and brown.

    The success rate also increases in the autumn since ropes, ladders, and camps are easy to set up and connect. With a brilliant blue sky, less heat haze, and breathtaking views of the world’s highest peaks in the distance, the trekking paths wind through verdant slopes.

     

    Accommodation at Pumori Expedition

     

    On a twin/double sharing basis, we provide the best three standard category hotels in Kathmandu with breakfast. However, it can be changed following prior requests with a change in price if climbers choose a single supplementary for the duration of their holiday in Kathmandu.

    We will stay in the best accessible tea houses and lodges that are tidy, clean, and sanitary till we reach Pumori Base Camp after landing in the Khumbu district and the Everest region. All of these are set up for twin or double sharing, and the majority have attached bathrooms and hot showers.

    Some of these hotels, particularly in Lukla and Namche Bazaar, feature the amenities you’d expect from a five-star hotel, as well as some great restaurants. Also, we will start at tented camps for the rest of the climbing period.

     

    Meals during the Pumori Expedition

     

    The lodging that is offered as part of the package includes breakfast. While trekkers in Kathmandu can pick from a broad variety of cuisines and restaurants, cafes, and pubs, lunch, supper, and drinks are informal for them.

    If necessary, we may suggest restaurants for lunch and dinner during your stay in Kathmandu based on your preferences.

    However, all three meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) are included in the package price during the Pumori Expedition period.

    The teahouses along with the trekking route offer continental, Nepali, Tibetan, Indian, and other cuisines. During our stay at the base camps, our chefs will make meals at a high altitude that are rich in potassium and carbs.

    I have used Unique Path three times and each time the team were all helpful, friendly and informative. Every aspect of our trip to Nepal was taken care of - Pick up at the airport to take us to our hotel. Next day the excitement of getting our trekking details and depending on the trip setting out with our guide and porter. My husband and I prefer to hike on our own, so we did no group options. Our itinerary was always followed exactly. When I go hiking in Nepal this company is my first point of contact. They are a great team and are totally recommended by me and my husband.

    Unique Path is a great choice for anyone who wants to explore the Himalayas. My wife and I made several treks with Unique Path to Manaslu, Kangchenjunga, Tilicho Lake, and Mustang. It goes without saying, that the scenery in Nepal is stunning. Lots of opportunity to learn about the culture and religion and traditions of Nepal. The people we met along the way were engaging and wonderful. Unique Path's staff was fantastic throughout all the trips. They were very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. They arranged everything from transportation to accommodation to food. They also provided all the necessary equipment and guidance and handled all the permit applications. I highly recommend Unique Path trekking to anyone who loves adventure and nature. These were once-in-a-lifetime experiences that I will never forget. I am available as a reference. David

    As with all treks, there will be unforeseen circumstances and you’re always beholden to nature. So you want a guide and an agency that is not only experienced enough but also sensitive and quick to changes on ground. I am very grateful for the deep experience that our guide, Dambar had. He made us feel safe and constantly had everything under control despite the weather and some early sickness some of us had. Coupled with his sharp wit and deep knowledge, this became such an enjoyable climb that was filled with priceless stories that I can’t wait to tell the kids about. The porters too were a lively bunch that ultimately became friends and we shared lots of fun moments on the mountain together. Babu ensured that our arrivals, arrangements and any administrative hassles were smooth and out of our minds so we could focus on the climb ahead. Thank you Unique Path trekking & expedition. Highly recommended for anyone who wants a great time while knowing you’re in safe hands!

    I just returned from a wonderful hike to Everest base camp with helicopter return. I was traveling solo am so grateful to Manager Babu and guide Suresh for looking after me. It is a trip I will remember the rest of my life. We started with a half day tour of Kathmandu and then flew to lukla on the next day to begin the trek. All the arrangements were made ahead of time and the folks unique path team constantly got on the phone to make sure the logistics went smoothly. Suresh kept a moderate pace and a great sense of humor. We made good time throughout the hikes and always got to the lodges on time and in daylight with energy left for the next day. The weather also cooperated this March and we had beautiful sunny skies and gorgeous Mountain View’s throughout the trek. I really could not ask for anything more and would very much recommend unique path
