The Everest Base Camp Luxury trek caters to those who want more home-comfort as well as an opportunity to follow in the footsteps of Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay.
From the time you arrive in Nepal Sherpa Expedition and Trekking will do their utmost to ensure this is a trek never to be forgotten. Luxury coaches will take you sightseeing around Kathmandu to historical and culturally significant locations. This is a great start to your adventure and will give you a taste of what to expect once we begin our trek.
The Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek is not going to leave you exhausted at the end of the day, making this trek a more pleasurable experience as you follow trails to memorable locations, such as the Buddhist Tengboche Monastery (3850m). A short trek that is not short on natural beauty and unbelievable views of some of the highest glistening snow-covered peaks in the world: Everest, Lhotse, Thamserku, and Ama Dablam.
Your journey begins with a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla airfield in the Khumbu region and treks up to Namche Bazaar, Tyangboche and Khumjung Village – home of the Sherpas. This trek immerses you into the culture and customs of these happy resilient Sherpa people while simultaneously exposing you to some of the most mind-blowing mountain views in the world.
This is an ideal trek suitable for those who want a more relaxing and comfortable journey to this amazing region within the Sagarmatha National Park.
Alert: There will be a slight change in the itinerary, especially the days when you take the domestic flights. In April & May and October & November of 2019, the government shifted the operation base for flights to and from Lukla (This is the actual starting point of the trek) from Kathmandu to Manthali, a town 4 to 5 hours drive away from Kathmandu. As a result, anyone who signed up for any Everest trek or climb had to go to Manthali to catch their flight. They moved the base because of renovation and high air traffic for Kathmandu's airport which is also the only international airport in Nepal. This change in the airport will continue in 2020 as well. Though right now there have been direct flights, we expect from March the airport will be shifted.
The following information will give you some idea about what you need to bring for the trek. It is important you do not forget the essential items, as this will determine your comfort and safety on the trek. Equally important is that you do not burden yourself with unnecessary equipment on the trek.
(Note our company guide will carry the medicines and first aid kits during the trek. However, we recommend you bring your personal first-aid kit as well)
You will be accommodated in 3-star hotels in Kathmandu. During the trek, we will be staying at lodges/ teahouses. You may find comfort and better quality teahouses - having attached bathroom at lower levels- until you reach higher elevations, where the accommodation is more basic with bare necessities.
In Kathmandu, your hotel includes breakfast, whereas all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) will be provided during the trek. A staple food of the Manang & Mustang regions is potatoes, oats, buckwheat, Sherpa stew, and Tibetan bread. Sherpa’s’ started farming potatoes when the first seeds were introduced to the region in the early 90s. There is a limited choice of food at higher elevations and except many potato dishes. Potatoes are high in carbohydrates – an excellent source of energy needed at high altitudes.
We use a private car for sightseeing and for the airport to hotel pick and drop off. We use public transportation or local buses during the trek.
This can be a challenging trek where you often have to walk 6-7 hours a day. You need past experience of hiking or trekking but if you have done any kind of trekking activities then it is always a plus! We have met people from all walks of life, shapes, and sizes who have completed the trek. The only difficult part is when altitude sickness strikes and the effect that it can have on your body. Before leaving for Nepal it is good if you can prepare yourself physically by increasing your stamina and oxygen intake.

This Everest Base Camp Trek exceeded my expectations in many ways. It was tough, but that’s what increased the sense of achievement. I can’t rate our trip leader Ram highly enough, or our fantastic guides Ram, wangchu and Dorje. Thanks for a wonderful trip!
