Everest Luxury Lodges

Trek in the Everest region staying in high quality lodges with visits to Sherpa villages and Buddhist monasteries. We have included two nights in Pangboche village from where you can walk to Ama Dablam Base Camp.

Our Everest Luxury Lodge itinerary uses the Everest Summit Lodge and Yeti Mountain Homes for accommodation which are at a standard far better than anything else available in the area. The lodges provide a high level of service with attractive gardens, comfortable restaurant and bedrooms as well as hot showers and western toilets. The bedrooms in these lodges are not heated however in winter months there will be a heater in the communal areas.

Your holiday begins with a guided sightseeing tour exploring Kathmandu, the vibrant capital of Nepal. On the third day of the trip you fly high into the Himalaya to the mountain airstrip at Lukla on a breathtakingly exciting flight on a Twin Otter plane and begin your trek in the heart of Sherpa Country, the Khumbu.

The Everest region is the most famous area in Nepal and probably the entire Himalaya, as it is the centre for many mountaineering expeditions. Here the Himalayan giants from Everest to Ama Dablam tower above the Khumbu Valley, making this one of the world’s most magical and inspiring places to visit and trek.

We will follow in the footsteps of famous mountaineers and trek the good trail from lodge to lodge through beautiful Nepalese villages with spectacular views of Mount Everest and many other peaks of the Khumbu and also have time to visit the main Sherpa villages and monasteries. You have the opportunity to trek to Ama Dablam Base Camp which is off the beaten track and well worth the walk for its rewarding views.
