There are upscale lodges along the route that offer twin-sharing lodging and contemporary conveniences like hot showers and cozy beds. Trekkers highly recommend the luxurious lodgings Yeti Mountain Home and Everest View Hotel.

 

Your tour will begin with a day in Kathmandu, where you may get acquainted with the bustling city and get ready for your trek. An emergency supply kit and a sleeping bag are included in your trekking package and will come in handy on your journey to Everest Base Camp.

You will travel to Lobuche, a small settlement close to the Khumbu Glacier, on day nine of your journey. You will next embark on a walk to Everest Base Camp, where you may get a close-up view of Mount Everest’s towering peak.

Once you’ve spent the night at base camp, you’ll go back to Lobuche and carry on your trek to Namche Bazaar. On the day of your departure, you will take a flight from there back to Kathmandu.

In general, the Everest Base Camp Luxurious Trekking package is a terrific opportunity to take in the Himalayas’ natural splendor while yet having access to modern conveniences. This journey is a fantastic option if you’re searching for a difficult yet rewarding adventure.

Background

The main draws of any typical Everest Base Camp Trekking package typically include the Mt. Everest Base Camp, a climb to Kala Patthar, Tengboche Monastery, Sagarmatha National Park, Namche Bazaar, and the legendary Sherpa community with its way of life, culture, custom, language, and hospitality.

Several of these deals also include a tour of Kathmandu’s World Heritage Sites. For overnight stays, lodges and tea houses with minimal amenities are preferred. Yet, these treks are ideal if you want to abandon worldly comforts and enjoy nature while becoming accustomed to very modest amenities. But, we offer a very special package for you, The Ultra-Luxury Everest Base Camp Trip, if you don’t want to miss out on the amenities.

Your meals and lodging in Kathmandu are scheduled at the Hotel Hyatt Regency, one of the city’s greatest five-star hotels, where you can experience five-star service. Luxury inns like the, Everest View Hotel, and Cultural Home will arrange your meals and lodging while you are hiking. The Khumbu region’s greatest luxury lodges, these establishments offer unmatched food and lodging.

For this trek, we will rent a helicopter to fly out of the base camp rather than descending to Lukla for a shared flight to Kathmandu.  Also, a dedicated luxury car will be available to you 24 hours a day throughout your stay in Kathmandu to meet your transportation needs. This journey guarantees an experienced, certified, and qualified guide to give you the greatest advice and company throughout the walk, just like any other Everest Base Camp Trekking
