About Everest Luxury Trekking

Annapurna Foothills Treks believes that even luxury travelers want a fair price. Book your Luxury Trek in Everest Region with Annapurna Foothills Treks and you will receive services equally luxurious as any international company at a more reasonable price.  The only ticket you will have to book is the ticket to Nepal.  From the moment of your arrival till your departure you will be taken care of every step of the way.  

Our Nepalese guide will provide an insider’s view of Nepal, and you have the satisfaction of supporting the economy of a developing country by booking through a local agent who employs local staff. While for most people, a rather strenuous trek accompanied by staying in basic tea houses is all part of the adventure of a trek in the Everest Region; others however, would much rather skip the adventure of hardship and stick to seeing this fabulous place in comfort. The Luxury Trek has been designed for those who want to enjoy the splendor of the remote Everest region with all the comforts of urban life.

Each night during the this Trek is spent in a luxurious lodge with all the modern conveniences of a city hotel “Yeti Mountain Home” has lodges at strategic points of the region, with heated rooms which are cozy and comfortable with attached bathrooms with hot water on tap. Meals may be enjoyed outside in the landscaped gardens while enjoying the magnificent views of surrounding peaks or in the comfortable lounges. The food is delicious and the service excellent and all meals are included in the Everest Luxury Trekking package price. 

Annapurna Foothills Treks has planned the Luxury Trek itinerary for a relaxed pace which is do-able for anyone of average fitness who can walk up to 6 hours a day. The schedule ensures ample time to acclimatize. The maximum altitude reached is under 5000 meters elevation and the maximum altitude at which we sleep is 4250 meters. This unhurried schedule allows plenty of time to take in the amazing surroundings, relax in the lodge gardens, explore the local Sherpa villages and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of high mountain life.

Your journey 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 lunch in Lukla we set out for 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, 3340m, the capital of the Khumbu region and a surprisingly modern place in the middle of such a remote place. This Luxury Trek spends two nights here to acclimatize and find that there are many places to explore.  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 charming village of Thame, 3800m, the birthplace of Tenzing Norgay.  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 is the high point of our Everest Luxury Trekking and offers the most spectacular view of Everest Lhotse and Ama Dablam.  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 Valley. We spend another night in Monjo on our way back down to Lukla where we get a return flight to Kathmandu.

This gentle Luxury Trek is the perfect way to explore the culture and countryside of the Everest Himalaya. For the energetic, there are endless opportunities to take day hikes to remote monasteries and great lookout points, or for those who prefer to relax, there is no better place than surrounded by the comfort of Yeti Mountain Homes and the best scenery in the world. Our Luxury Trek begins and ends in Kathmandu our ancient capital city. Annapurna Foothills treks will provide a sightseeing tour of the historical and cultural monuments - the temples, shrines, Gompas, stupas, bazaars and monuments which give a glimpse into the fascinating history of Nepal. 

Ready to challenge yourself with an interesting climb of a 6000m peak? We organize exciting adventure climbs of Island Peak 6189m and Lobuche East Peak 6119m as an add on climb to any of the Everest region treks. We recommend our guests to do the Everest Base Camp Trek or Gokyo Valley and Everest Base Camp Trek or Khumbu Three High Passes Trek before attempting for either Island Peak or Lobuche East Peak

After distributing our luggage among the strong Sherpa porters who will so cheerfully carry our burdens for the trip, we set out downhill into the Dudh Koshi (milk river) Valley. The trails in these parts reflect the large roll Tibetan Buddhism plays in the lives of the Sherpa people. There are many mani stones, which are large stones withTibetan prayers chiseled into them, all along the trails.

The trail continues to climb through forests of pine. About half way up there, is a vantage point that provides our first view of Mt. Everest rising majestically from behind the great ridge of Nuptse-Lhotse.

Useful Info

Best time to Travel:

Spring, from March to June when the rhododendrons and alpine flowers are in full bloom. Expect clear skies and sunshine in the mornings with some light cloud cover later in the day. Autumn / Winter (October-January): at this time of year the weather is normally stable. Expect crisp sunny days and cold evenings. Note that October is usually very busy and trails can feel quite crowded.

Drinking Water on Everest Luxury Trekking:

The water provided in Yeti Mountain Home Lodges is safe to drink.  You may wish to bring chlorine tablets as an additional precaution for water you drink along the way.  Most guest houses along the trek charge a small fee  for the boiled water. Although mineral water is available in most places, there is no provision to dispose of the plastic bottles, so we encourage the guests to do what they can to protect the environment.

Fitness/Health:

If you have a reasonable level of fitness, this trek should be more than manageable. The altitude becomes more noticeable the higher we go, so we walk at a slow pace and take plenty of breaks to rest and acclimatize.

Local Customs You Should Know About on Classic Everest LuxuryTrekking:

Ethnic groups of the hilly and mountain regions are predominantly Buddhist, and you will see many mani stones, stupas, gumbas and prayer wheels. It is respectful to pass these objects with your right side nearest to the object, in a clockwise direction. Avoid sitting or standing on mani stones, stupas, tables used for worship or anything that is a religious symbol, as that is considered disrespectful.

Travel Insurance for Everest Luxury Trekking:

It is strongly recommended to be sufficiently protected when you go into remote areas. You need specialized travel insurance that covers emergency evacuation, injury, lost baggage, liability and medical treatment. Make sure the insurance covers all the activities that you will be undertaking during your stay in Nepal. Annapurna Foothills Treks and Expeditions Pvt. Ltd. can organize the appropriate medical response based on your policy.

Flight Delay/Cancellation:

Domestic flights to mountain regions can be delayed or cancelled due to bad weather. Be aware that you may have long waits in the airports. From our side, if a flight is cancelled we make sure you get on the next possible flight.

If flight cancellations at the start of your trek delay your trek to the point of disturbing your onward travel schedule, you will be free to choose an alternative trip; there are many excellent options in the Annapurna, Langtang and other regions. If you do not wish to take an alternative trek, and wait in Kathmandu for the flight to Lukla, your original trek may be shortened due to the days lost in waiting. In such case, the client will be responsible to bear all additional expenses including food and accommodation.

If the client wishes to make an alternative arrangement such as a helicopter flight, Annapurna Foothills Treks and Expeditions will assist in making the booking, but will not cover the cost of the alternative arrangement. The refunded money of the unused flight ticket would be credited to the concerned client, however.

There will be no refund for the days of the trek that are missed. You will not be entitled to any refund for services in the package (ie hotel, transport, flight) that you did not use due to the cancellation.

It is advisable to allow one or two extra days at the end of your trip to allow for flight delay/cancellation.

In an emergency, or upon request by our clients, a heli-rescue can be organized. The helicopter costs around USD 3500, and can lift 4-5 persons per flight.

If flight cancellations at the end of your trek delay your return to Kathmandu, you will be responsible for all your expenses during the wait in Lukla.
