Our Everest Luxury Trekking starts and ends in Kathmandu. A morning mountain flight with fantastic views of the Khumbu Mountains brings us to the small airstrip in Lukla (2860m), from where our trek begins. We enter the homeland of the resilient Sherpa people who have inhabited this harsh and beautiful mountain region since long before any type of infrastructure arrived. Their sturdy stone houses are architecturally similar to the houses of their Tibetan ancestors. Endless Buddhist prayer flags, Mani stones and monasteries remind us the important role their ancient Tibetan Buddhist religion still plays in their lives. After having lunch at Lukla, we set out to Phakding (2601m). It is a leisurely 4-hour walk on a trail that was once an ancient trading route, as well as the route used by mountaineers who have come to the Khumbu region seeking the mighty Everest and other giants. The next day is another gentle hike to Monjo (2840m), another tranquil spot where few tourists bother to stay because it is so close to Namche Bazaar.
There is a fairly long, steep climb to reach Namche Bazaar (3441m), the capital of the Khumbu region and a surprisingly modern place in the middle of such a remote place. We spend two nights here to acclimatize and will use the acclimatization day to explore the nearby villages and hike upto maybe Hotel Everest View at Syangboche as well to witness the magical view of Mount Everest (8848.86m) .
Namche sits on a horseshoe shaped valley that opens to a beautiful view of Kongde Ri. From a viewpoint just above Namche, you get an amazing view of Everest, Lhotse and Ama Dablam. We branch off the main Everest Base Camp trail onto a less traveled trail through pine forests to reach the charming village of Thame (3800m), widely known as the birthplace of legend Tenzing Norgay Sherpa (First Nepali to summit Mount Everest). There is a day hike to Sumdur Ridge, 4830m, for unforgettable views of giants including Cho Oyu. The return trail to Lukla follows a new trail through rhododendron forests to Kongde (4250m).
Kongde at an elevation of 4250 meters, is the highest point of our Everest Luxury Trekking and offers the most spectacular view of Mount Everest (8848.86m), Lhotse (8516m) and Ama Dablam (6812m) respectively. A day-hike to nearby Farak Ri offers an even more expansive view of five of the world’s highest mountains, Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho-Oyo, and Ama Dablam, Thamserku and many other peaks of Khumbu Himalaya. We spend another night in Monjo on our way back down to Lukla and from Lukla, we'll take an early flight to Kathmandu
