This is a classy and high-standard way of trekking with comfortable adventure. Our Luxury Everest Base Camp Trekking leads fellow travelers to exciting moments throughout the journey.

Where does the Everest base camp trekking in luxury start and end? 

Everest Base Camp Luxury Lodge Trekking begins with the sweeping short flight to land at Lukla, the gateway town for many adventures around Everest. Upon landing a 35-minute flight Lukla leads on a pleasant trail through farm villages, encountering interesting prayer monuments and spinning bells on the route.

As the walk proceeds, walk to higher ground with an uphill to cope with higher altitude and enter into serene alpine woodland to reach the famed Namche Bazaar. Trekkers can find facilities such as banks, post offices, cybercafe's, and various well-stocked shops and stores with many fine good lodges and restaurants. Visitors can savor some of the most delicious meals throughout the Everest region.

After acclimatization days in Namche, the walk continues facing scenic views of Everest and the magnificent peaks of Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Nuptse, and mighty Everest with adjoining lesser mountains. The climb then starts within a cool forest of pines and rhododendrons, arriving at the beautiful Thyangboche with its impressive monastery. Tengboche Monastery is also the oldest Monastery in the region. The monks host prayer sessions mostly after 3 p.m. however the time mainly depends upon the weather conditions and the session can be in the morning too. The best part is visitors embarking on the Everest journey can participate in these prayer sessions which help rejuvenate and part ways from their stressful lives. Some find the session useful for finding mindfulness and being closer to understanding the meaning of life. Further, Tengboche is a lovely spot with mountains all around, including views of Mt. Everest

After a pleasant overnight stop with a tour of the monastery, our adventure leads further north to Everest Base Camp. At Everest Base Camp, enjoy the superb scenery of Khumbu Ice Falls and glaciers, and Everest hidden between Nuptse and Lhotse peaks. After spending quality time in Everest Base Camp, our next adventure leads to the highest point of the trek at Kalapatthar, 5,545 m/18192 feet.

From Kalapatthar one can see exceptional views of giant peaks with Everest in the mere distance, and then head back to Lukla on the same route with an opportunity to enjoy more of the area. After reaching Lukla fly back to Kathmandu after an overwhelming time and adventure on Everest Base Camp Luxury Lodge Trekking.

What is luxury on the Everest base camp trek?

Luxury on Everest Base Camp doesn’t mean 5-star accommodation, rather it implies rooms with attached bathrooms, electric blankets, western-style toilets with amenities, good service, and good food. As the Solukhumbu region is itself located in a remote area it is advised to trekkers to not keep expectations that are so fancy. Getting a cozy accommodation with the above-mentioned amenities is itself a great deal during the peak season. Holiday Tours Nepal has made all the possible arrangements to provide a top-class service to all our fellow travelers while giving the best experience of Everest.

In addition to this, instead of trekking back to Lukla from Gorakshep, we have the option of a helicopter flight back to Lukla. The flight takes off from either Gorakshep or Lobuche, depending on the weather conditions and availability of the flight schedule. This is another thrilling experience in the package. Flying above the valleys and alongside the mountain tops will further enhance the luxury experience. Any individual will be delighted to witness lush valleys, snow-capped mountains, and glacier lakes from a bird’s-eye view. Mt Everest (8,848m/29,028 ft), Pumori (7,161 m/23,494 ft), Ama Dablam (6,812 m/ 22349 ft ), Lhotse (8,516 m/ 27939 ft), Cho Oyu (8,201 m/ 26,906 ft), Nuptse (7,861 m /25,791 ft), and other snow-capped peaks come close when standing above the clouds in this helicopter tour.

Trekkers don’t understand this often, but this is what luxury is: getting a private bathroom instead of going out in the cold, staying warm inside the cloak of warm blankets, and enjoying Western-style commodes instead of squat commodes. This is what Luxury is at during the Everest Base Camp Trek.

Note: The facilities of electric blankets may sometimes not work at Gorakshep as the village is powered by solar, and in cases of insufficient sun rays, the batteries don’t get charged enough, which causes an issue. Similarly, the Everest base camp trek in Luxury must be booked in advance to make early bookings for the accommodations, as fewer hotels in Everest provide this sort of facility.

Is luxuriously going to Everest base camp right for trekkers?

Going to Everest Base Camp in Luxury is the best option for senior trekkers, couples, or families with children who wish to travel to Everest Base Camp.

Trekkers and travelers who are not used to the cold weather and want to stay warm and cozy at night can get the best out of the next day and are even recommended for going to Everest Base Camp trekking luxuriously. Trekkers with physical disability issues or trekkers who face a hard time ascending down on their knees can even go for this package.

As the nights are warm and cozy due to the heat of the electric blankets, there is less chance of getting sick or getting caught with a cold at night.

Going to Everest Base Camp in the simple basic package can be pretty cheap compared to the luxury trip as well, but trekkers have the option to select from either one.

How to prepare for Everest Base Camp trek?

There are multiple ways to prepare for the Everest Base Camp trek, including cardiovascular exercises, engaging in small hikes (around once or twice a week), and participating in high-altitude treks. Going to the gym for half an hour to an hour per day, avoiding lifts in favor of using the stairs, and walking for 45 minutes to one hour per day with a weight of at least 5–6 kilos daily before the trek can significantly enhance the trekking experience.

The physical part is relatively straightforward; it's the mental aspect that makes the trek challenging. Therefore, trekkers must remember to respect the high-altitude environment and follow the guide diligently. Our minds can be triggered by various factors, such as anger, impatience, or a complaining nature, so it's crucial to take care of our mental state. Remaining calm, adhering to the guide's instructions, and staying focused on the situation are essential for a successful trek, allowing the guide to arrange the best possible outcome on time.

After reaching an altitude of 4500 meters, the only things keeping you alive are yourself and the will to continue. Holiday Tours Nepal openly acknowledges this reality, avoiding the concealment of challenges and presenting both the positive and challenging aspects. Preparation for the Everest Base Camp Trek demands time, dedication, and passion. Coming unprepared may result in improving fitness during the trip, but it will undoubtedly be a strenuous experience.

Namche to tengboche

Acclimation during Everest base camp luxury trek

Acclimation is a crucial thing when heading for a high-altitude trekking adventure. Going slow and easy is the first and most important thing at high altitude. Trekkers and travelers must make sure that their breathing pattern and their heartbeats are normal during the trail. To do so always remember to walk slowly and acclimate to the decreased oxygen level at higher elevations.

Additionally, for acclimation, we spent two nights in the mountains which accounts for extra days, with the first one being at Namche after crossing the 3400-meter mark and the other one being at Dingboche after crossing the 4400-meter mark.

During both of the acclamation days, we go for a day hike to experience how the next day is going to be by hiking for 200 meters, at least altitude-wise, to know how our bodies are going to react the next day.

Accommodation facilities during Everest base camp luxury trek

Accommodation facilities that are provided during the Everest base camp trek are some of the best hotels that are available at those locations. We will be selecting the best-class service hotels that have a clean kitchen, fresh food, and a good room with electric blankets and showers.

Make sure that during your trek to the base camp of Everest, there is private hydroelectric power until Pangboche. Due to this, we will not get cellular connectivity after Pangboche until Gorakshep. The hotels are basic guest houses with the best-in-class services and rooms. At Lobuche and Gorakshep, there are only 6-7 hotels, respectively. Even among them, we book the best, which are Oxygen and Everest Inn, respectively.

Note: It is not recommended to use electric blankets and sleeping bags till Namche to get adapted to the cold.

Altitude sickness and how to prevent it?

Altitude sickness popularly known as Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) in the world of high-altitude trekking, is something we never know when it's going to hit. There are two types of AMS, which are known as High altitude cerebral edema (HACE) and High altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE).

These are some of the symptoms of acute mountain sickness that must be considered.

  • Headaches and dizziness
  • Lack of appetite
  • Pain in the chest while breathing
  • Feeling tired/fatigue
  • Anger, stress, or hallucinations

The best way to avoid altitude sickness is by going slow, eating properly, drinking at least 3-4 liters of water, having rest after the trek, sleeping at least 8 hours at night, and avoiding long naps during the day.

Internet facilities at the trekking trail of Everest

Cellular services at Everest Base Camp trekking trail work pretty well till Pangboche from Lukla. After Pangboche till Gorakshep, we don’t get cellular connectivity; however, at Gorakshep, we do get 2G signals. Ncell and NTC are the recommended companies if trekkers are going for cellular connectivity. Holiday Tours Nepal provides SIM cards to visitors who head on the journey.

Internet facilities are available all over the trail, which can range from 3 to 5 dollars per day. Internet facilities are available and can be used throughout the trek in the tea houses or lodges. Trekkers can buy WIFI cards from companies like Airlink and Everest Link, which are the most reliable for using the internet at the Everest base camp trekking trail.

Toilet facilities at the trekking trail of Everest

Toilet facilities at the tea houses and lodges along the Everest base camp trekking trail and the places where holiday tours Nepal will be providing the accommodation are very good with western-style amenities. Gorakshep and Lobuche can be problematic due to the cold, as the water in the toilets may freeze at that time.

There are problems with the public bathroom at the trekking trail of Everest Base Camp. There is a public washroom on the way to Phakding and Namche; after that, we don’t have public toilets. So there are just two options: either we have to go towards the bushes or trees or get to the guest houses and pay them around 50–100 Nepali rupees for using the toilet facilities.

After all the preparation is done your assigned guide will meet you in the hotel lobby and transfer you to Kathmandu Airport for your flight to Lukla. The guide will help you with the logistics before boarding the plane. The flight will take about 30 minutes which is considered the most thrilling part of the journey.

Upon landing you will meet up with the porters in Lukla, and have a brief session with the team while drinking tea. After this short stop at Lukla, your trekking journey begins. You will trek toward Phakding which takes about 4 hours. The distance of the trek is around 7.5 km/4.6 miles. You will come across small settlements like Chiplung, Thadokoshi, and Ghat. Lunch is served in these locations. Trekkers pass through lush rhododendron forests along the bank of the Dudh Koshi River to reach Phakding. Upon reaching Phakding settle in a luxury accommodation place and rest. Dinner is served and stay overnight in Phakding.

  • Accommodation:Luxury Yeti Lodge / Resorts.

After breakfast, we will continue the trek. Today the destination is Namche which is also known as “the Gateway to Everest Region.” The hike today lasts for about 6 hours for normal walkers. Various settlements can be seen in this section of the walk which includes Toktok, Benkar, Monjo, and Jorsale. Among these places, Monjo and Jorsale are the lunch stops. However, Jorsale is mostly favored by the trekkers. Do remember that just after Monjo, there is a Sagarmatha National Park check post where all the permits and documents are thoroughly checked. A guide from Holiday Planner Nepal will then take care of all the logistics during the checking.

After passing the check post and having lunch in Jorsale, we will walk for about 3 hours to finally reach Namche. After arriving at Namche stroll around the area, settle in luxury accommodation, rest, and have dinner. Stay overnight in Namche Bazaar.

  • Max. Altitude:3,440 m/11,286 ft
  • Meals:Breakfast+Lunch+Dinner

Today marks the first rest day in this Everest Base Camp luxury lodge trekking. This day is essential for acclimatization at higher altitudes. So, you will get a whole day to explore places in and around Namche. Trekkers can visit the Sagarmatha National Park Museum and understand the rich history of mountaineering. A hike to Everest View Hotel is a must-do activity as the best Everest View can be seen from here. The hike is around 1 hour and 45 minutes which is best for proper acclimatization. Other options can be visiting the Irish Pub and drink and eat delicious beverages and recipes. Visit the Syangboche Panorama Viewpoint and the Sherpa Panorama hotel is also another alternative. 

Other activities that can be done in Namche are Photography, yoga sessions, animal viewing, and meditation. Any location can be selected for lunch and dinner as per personal interest. Stay overnight at Namche.

    After a fulfilling breakfast, the journey to Everest Base Camp continues. The trek today is up to Tengboche which takes about 5 hours. The walk in this section is uphill with narrow passes. This allows a spectacular view of Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Thamsherku, Nuptse, and Everest. You can also see Yak while moving up from Namche as they are the primary means of transporting supplies in the Everest region. 

    After Namche small settlements like Kanjuma and Lausa are passed. After an hour's walk from Lause, you will reach Phunkithanga which serves as the lunch stop for the day. After lunch trek for another 2 and half hours to finally reach Tengboche.

    Upon reaching Tengboche head to Tengboche monastery, the oldest monastery of the Khumbu region to witness the afternoon ritual and ceremony. This is a routine ceremony which is mainly done after 3 o'clock. However, to enter the monastery it takes a small amount of money is required as a ticket price which is collected as a fund for the management of the monastery. As the exploration of the monastery is completed head down to Tengboche village and stay in an accommodation place. Have a filling dinner and stay overnight at Tengboche.

      Begin the day with a filling meal before beginning the walk. The walk will have a 500-meter elevation climb. The path goes through Deboche's rich rhododendron forest. After Deboche, continue on to Pangboche. The Himalayan Thar, often known as the mountain goat, can be seen here. The Pangboche monastery, which houses a Yeti's head, is the reason Pangboche is well-known. Walking from Pangboche to Somare can take an hour or longer because Somare is the lunch destination. After lunch, continue your hike to Dingboche, which should take two to three hours depending on your pace. After arriving to Dingboche, rest at the accommodation, which includes dinner.

        Begin the day with a hearty breakfast. Dingboche's acclimatization day is today. The hike from Dingboche to Nangkartshang Mountain and back takes about 4-5 hours (with a 250-meter elevation gain). While hiking, take in the view of Ama Dablam from the front. Along the way, there is also a well-known rock that is popular for photographing. Enjoy a good perspective of Dingboche village, the island peak (5,087 meters/16,690 feet), and Manaslu (8,163 meters/27,781 feet) as you arrive. Dinner is served in the Dingboche lodging. Stay the night at Dingboche.

          Begin your day with a full breakfast before continuing the adventure. Today's trek begins in Dingboche and ends in Lobuche. We set out on a trail that has fantastic mountain vistas particularly Taboche and Cholatse, which is refreshing. We travel across the pasture land before crossing the wooden bridge to Thukla. Thukla is the lunch stop for the day. Continue walking towards Lobuche after lunch at Thukla. This will be the most challenging phase of the whole trekking. After a 45-minute hard trek, you will arrive at Thukla Pass. A vast group of stones dedicated to the memory of lost climbers and Sherpas during their Everest trip is found here. The breathtaking views of Khumbutse, Lingtren, Cholatse, and Pumori are more than worth it from here. We then walk for an hour along the valley, following the river and passing over Nepali flat trails to reach Lobuche. Lobuche serves lunch and dinner so settle in the accommodation place. Spend the night at Lobuche.

            After breakfast, continue trekking from Lobuche to Gorakshep. Then go to the Gorakshep teahouse. Lunch is offered in Gorakshep. After lunch, proceed to the trek's major attraction, Everest Base Camp. It takes 3-4 hours to get from Gorakshep to EBC. On the way to Everest Base Camp, see the famous Khumbu glacier and first-hand views of Khumbutse, Changtse, Lingtren, Pumori, Nuptse, Nuptsesar, and the massive Everest. During expedition season, visitors can see the area packed with yellow tents. Descend to Gorakshep after inspecting the base camp. Dinner is served in the Gorakshep inn, where we slept the night.
