Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek

3034

Unleash yourself to this mega trek which leads to an epic journey of a life time. The lure of Everest has always been a great desire and a matter of curiosity among all travelers and adventure seekers far and wide. When it comes, traveling to Nepal and Nepal Himalayas, the first thing that comes to peoples mind is Everest. Being the tallest mountain in the world, Mount Everest attracts thousands of travelers from every corners of the globe. Our trek to Everest Base Camp leads through traditional Sherpa villages accommodating you in a full sophistication of luxury lodges and hugely improvised local lodges. In all our luxury lodges we do provide electric blanket, if not hot water bottle (to keep you warm during night time), varied mouth watering meals prepared by our excellent chefs, all in a true hospitality of the lodge staff. As we go higher up, things start to get pretty basic and rudimentary and we have no choice but to accommodate ourselves in normal lodges for few days. Besides luxury lodges, in all our normal lodges we use our own chef and kitchen staff who will prepare hygienic and delicious meals for you. To make the itinerary short and sweet and to fit within your time frame, instead of retracing our trail back down, we will take helicopter from Pheriche down to the trek starting point at Lukla.
