Luxury Trek to Everest
For those who wish to try trekking in Nepal and hike to Everest, but wish to do it in style – we have the solution. If tents and ‘roughing it’ isn’t what you had in mind, but you still want the thrill and adventure of scaling a mountain, then we have crafted the perfect bespoke trip for you.
The luxury begins as soon as you touch down. Arrive in style as you are whisked straight off to a five-star hotel right in the heart of the city. You will have 2 days here to rest and recover from your flight, and catch up on your jet lag, with full use of the 5-star amenities to assure you are refreshed and energized when you begin your trek.
Throughout these 2 days, you also have the opportunity to explore some of the world’s most beautiful and historic sights – including Boundanth, Pashupatinath, and both Kathmandu and Patan Durbar Square. As you take in the sights, guided by one of our experts, enjoy some of the city’s most sumptuous food and get ready for its best entertainment in the evenings.
Once your 5-star city stay is complete, we get ready for our trek by embarking on a short flight to Lukla. Famed as being on the most beautiful flights in the world, marvel at the mountain peaks that welcome you to the gateway of the Everest Region.
We will then begin by trekking to Namche Bazar – where we will have time to explore and enjoy the culture of the region. We will then move on through Pangboche, Dingboche, Chhukung, and Lobuche, before trekking our way up to Kalapatthar and completing our journey in Lukla, where we take our flight back to the Capital.
Throughout your 2 week trek, you will scale up the world’s most impressive mountains, and take in views of Mount Kalapatthar, Lhotse, Nuptse, Amadablam, Thamserku, and of course the Mighty Eververst, as the Himalayas become your companions and stunning scenery throughout your journey. However, it is not only mountains that you can expect to see. This deluxe trek also takes in glaciers, chortens, lakes, woods filled with oak, pine, and rhododendrons, as well as flora and fauna that can be found nowhere else in the world.
This Luxury Everest trek will also take you on a spiritual and cultural journey. You will have the chance to meet the local people and hear of the wildly varying traditions that occur throughout the distance that we cover. You can try authentic village food and see Nepali architecture, as well as being able to visit monasteries and temples; tucked away on mountain tops and guarded with multicolored prayer flags – they are a sight to behold.
At times the trek can get tough, so we recommend a good level of fitness, however, throughout your adventure, Hike to Everest will always accommodate you in the most luxurious accommodation available. Depending on the height and region that we rest in, the type of accommodation available can vary and become limited – however, we always reserve the best hotels and lodges en route, so that after a long day of trekking you can be guaranteed a comfortable place to relax and re-energize. And when the trek is over and you return back to Kathmandu, you can enjoy two more nights in one of the best hotels in the city. So treat yourself, visit the spa, or just relax in one of the deluxe suites, and indulge in some well-deserved pampering after completing such an epic mission.
As well as this luxury trek to Everest, Hike to Everest also operates various Everest trekking packages, both for those looking for luxury and for those wishing to keep it simple. We have an outstanding team of knowledgeable trekking guides and aptly experienced sherpas to give you an enjoyable, comfortable, and stress-free, deluxe, trekking experience.
