Many of you may have a question 'Can Everest Base Camp Trek be luxury?
Or ‘are there any comfortable hotels up in the Himalayas?’ The answer is 'Yes'. We have offered the best quality of mountain accommodation to guarantee luxury throughout the trip.

Namaste Nepal Trekking & research Hub has created this Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek to meet and to overshoot your satisfaction in luxury, quality, and memorable experiences. The lodging choices along the route are based on the real experience of our founder and trek leader Rajan, to entail the best the Everest reason has to offer. This is the opportunity to accomplish the highest standard accommodations with the local flavor of Sherpa people. This Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek comprises of 3 nights stay in a 5-star hotel in Kathmandu and 11 nights stay in the best lodge along the trek. Your hard days of trekking will be perfectly complemented by a comfortable and memorable stay.

 Nowhere in the world is more stunning than in the Everest region. It is where four of the world's tallest peaks Mt. Mt. Everest(8,848.86m / 29,031) Mt. Lhotse(8,516m / 27,940 ft), Mt. Makalu(8,463m / 27,766 ft), and Cho Oyu(8,188m / 26,864 ft) rise above everything else, there are many other mountains too making this reason so unique and beautiful. Trekking on the grandest path of the Himalayas by staying on the 5-star accommodations will make this trek so special. Trek through Everest reason outstanding mountain views, the world highest mountain landscapes, and the opportunities to go sightseeing around Sagarmatha/Everest national park, a world heritage site.  The trek further offers to get a glimpse into the life of world-famous climbers (the Sherpas) and fill the luxurious hospitality providing by them in the Himalayas. It is an opportunity to embark on an epic journey that Sir Edmund Hillary and Sir Tenzing Norgay Sherpa set off in 1953.

Your trip begins with a sightseeing tour of Kathmandu valley. Visiting the world heritage sights of Kathmandu is something the best of Kathmandu has to offer to the trekkers. Then the luxury journey to Everest Base Camp beings with the flight from Kathmandu to the hair-raising Lukla airport perched at Imposing 2,860m / 9,383 ft. The small airstrip frequently makes lists of the world’s most dangerous airports.  But you likely are safer making the journey by air than by Nepal’s system of mountain roads with sheep drops into steep canyons, no guardrails, and buses that could be described as “aging” at best. Altitude is an important consideration on the Everest Base Camp trek and in Namche Bazar (3,441 m / 11,290 ft), the Sherpa village and gateway to the Khumbu region; we will stay another night for rest and acclimatization.

From Namche, the trek heads upward through colorful Sherpa villages along the Dudh Kosi River. Terraced Barley, potatoes fields, and rhododendron forests up to Dingboche eventually turn into hardened landscapes of rock and ice. On the approach to Everest Base Camp is the final outpost of Gorak Shep; there are no teahouses at Everest Base Camp so we will stay at Gorakshep and trek up to Everest base camp. The scramble to Kala Patthar (5,545m / 18,192 ft) offers a panorama of Everest, Lhotse, and Nuptse that bests the views from the base camp itself.

The main Everest Base Camp trail is an up-and-back route. Trekking back to Lukla from Everest base camp is all the way down! It seems short and easy which normally can be done in about 3 or 4 days. If you have limited time and or don’t like to trek back the same way you can choose NNTR's Everest Base Camp Trek, 1 Way By Helicopter. It will also be another Lifetime experience. But if you wish to take a more challenging “stay off the beaten path” then NNTR- Everest Base Camp Trek Via Gokyo Lake 18 days would be ideal. If you are seeking real adventure for the more challenging route that crosses the most famous mountain passes in the world, you definitely need to consider NNTR- Everest 3 High Passes Trek- 20 daysThis whole trip will always stay at the bottom of your heart and you will always cheer this memorize and want to make more of them, happy trekking.

Best Time for Everest Base Camp Trek


For the Everest Base Camp Trek, Spring (March, April, May) and Autumn (September, October, November) are the best months for High altitude treks in Nepal. The air, freshly washed by the monsoon rain, is crystal clear, stunning mountain scenery, and the weather is still comfortably warm. Although many trekking trips into the lower altitude can be taken during winter and monsoon too, but the cold can be bitter and dangerous at the high altitude, trekking trails above 4000 meters are usually blocked by the heavy snowfall. And the trails can be slippery due to the monsoon rain, Nepal’s famous Juka (leeches) are an unpleasant feature of the wet season, but with care, trekking can still be possible and there are certainly fewer trekkers on the trail.

This flight is one of the closest mountain flights you can do in Nepal. Touch down on the narrow mountaintop runway, and your Trekking to dream EBC begins.

After your whirlwind arrival, head out on a half-day trek. You'll follow a riverside trail downhill through the Dudh Koshi Valley, passing farms, stone villages, and snow-topped mountains toward your first overnight in Phakding where the luxury meets nature.

Day 4 : Trek to Namche Bazar (3,441 m / 11,290 ft)

From Phakding, the route crisscrosses the pine-flanked Dudh Koshi (Milky River) river on a steel cable suspension bridge. Keep an eye out for yaks and other local wildlife that amble along the same route.
From there, the trekking path leads into Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO-listed nature reserve that is home to snow leopards and red pandas. After passing a checkpoint in Monjo to register your trekking permits, you'll begin a steep ascent to Namche Bazaar. If the weather is clear, you may just catch a glimpse of Mount Everest in the distance.
After a strenuous uphill hike, you'll arrive for your overnight stop with time to shop for souvenirs or any extra gear you may need. Namche, the main trading village in the Khumbu region, is the historic meeting point for Hindu traders from the lowlands and Tibetan yak caravans. It remains a global melting-pot (and now even boasts an Irish pub!).

Day 5 : Acclimatization and Rest day at Namche Bazar (3,441 m / 11,290 ft)

After yesterday's significant gain in altitude, you'll take today off to relax and acclimatize. 

The tourist Capital and the biggest settlement in the Khumbu region: Namche Bazaar, well facilitated with ATMs, Internet cafes, restaurants, bakeries and lots of branded and local shops selling the daily needs. Although its rest day for acclimatization, we walk up to Khumjung village through Everest view Hotel and see beautiful views of the Himalayas including Mount Everest, Khumjung village is a brimming little town which is beautifully filled by the Sherpa community. Walking through the Sherpa village will be a unique experience to understand the real lifestyle of Sherpa people.

Day 6 : Trek to Dibuche (3700 m / 12140 ft)

From Namche, the trail follows the valley, high above the Dudh Koshi River. After the acclimatization day up in Namche, you'll be ready to hit the road to Everest base camp again. As you leave Namche, you'll catch an outstanding glimpse of the Himalaya, marking the world's highest elevations.

You'll continue along the trail. There are numerous tea shops along the way, so you can stop for a cup of Nepali chiya with the view of Ama Doblom.

Finally, you'll make a steep descent over the river along yet another suspension bridge. The village of Phunki Tenga, where we will stop for another mountain lunch. From there, you'll face another steep climb. The shady path zigzags through rhododendron forests and high-altitude vistas—keep your eyes peeled for the region's colorful mountain bird species. Finally, you'll arrive at Tengboche, home to a legendary Buddhist monastery, the largest in the Khumbu. After visiting the Monastery we will trek don for 30 min to Dibuche for the Night.

Day 7 : Trek to Pheriche (42,00 m / 13,780 ft)

After having morning tea with the sunrise view over the Everest Massive, you'll now descend steeply through thick forest. You'll cross over the Imja Khola River, part of the Dudh Khosi river. From there, you'll arrive at the village of Pangboche, which is situated directly opposite side of Ama Dablam, one of the region's landmark summits. Because of the village's unique location, you'll be able to admire stunning and immersive views of the mountain. You'll also be able to see a gompa, or Tibetan monastery, along with sacred Buddhist mani walls. After another few hours of trekking, you'll arrive at Pheriche, where you'll be spending the night.

Day 8 : Acclimatization and Rest day at Pheriche (42,00 m / 13,780 ft)

After a strenuous few days of continuous climbing, your body is likely ready for a rest. Luckily, you'll have the whole day in Pheriche to relax and up for an acclimatization hike.

Head up to higher elevations along upper Dingboche, where you'll find a more traditional feel than the lower, trekker-oriented part of town, which is mostly made up of guesthouses and tea lodges. If you're up for a small day hike, you can head to an old Buddhist hermitage, known as Nangar Dzong. There's also a peak along the ridgeline called Dolma Ri which you can easily reach on foot. There, you'll find strings of bright prayer flags and a scenic viewpoint.

Day 9 : Trek to Lobuche (4,940 m / 16,208 ft)

After resting up, or going on a few shorter day hikes, you'll head out again on the main path. Continue to climb the wide valley, just beneath the snow-capped peaks of Cholatse and Tawache, which loom impressively on your left. You'll notice that the landscape becomes more icy and remote, with sparser habitation. 

Another turn brings you to a steep ascent at the foot of the Khumbu Glacier, the highest glacier in the world. Though it's one of the most photographed sights along the route, nothing can prepare you for a face-to-face view. 

As you continue climbing, you'll find many stone cairns along the top of the path. These have been built as memorials to the Sherpas and other brave mountaineers who have died while leading Everest expeditions. The route continues gently along the slope of the glacier, eventually reaching the small cluster of houses known as Lobuche.

Day 10 : Trek to Everest Base Camp (5,364m / 17,599 ft) then trek back to Gorakshep (5,164 m / 16,942 ft)

After breakfast, we start our trek to Base Camp. Following a rocky moraine path, we see an icy glacial pond and icebergs down below of Khumbu glacier. After the last rocky moraine dunes, a short downhill trek brings us to Gorak Shep, a dry, sandy lakebed that sports an ominous moniker (the name means "Graveyard of Crows.") It's simple.

But you're not stopping yet. Continue on, climbing along the Khumbu Glacier at a slow but steady pace in your bid to reach Everest Base Camp. Finally, after a long day at high altitudes, the payoff arrives. Stop to take photos and relax in the world-famous threshold for all summit expeditions. After some time to admire your surroundings and wander around the camps with the climbers by the help of your guide you'll make your way back down to Gorak Shep, where you'll spend the night.  

Day 11 : Trek / Climb to Kalapattar (5,545m / 18,192 ft) then trek down to Pheriche (42,00 m / 13,780 ft)

You will trek down to Gorekshep for a satisfying breakfast and start trekking down to Pheriche. 

Day 12 : Trek to Namche Bazaar (3,441 m / 11,290 ft)

Passing back along the familiar ground, you'll head to the village of Pangboche. From there, you'll continue to follow the river, finally crossing back over it. Pass through birch and rhododendron forests to Tengboche, you'll descend the bridge over the Dudh Koshi to Phunki Tenga, where you can check out the Buddhist prayer wheels powered by water. You'll head down to the base of the valley before another climb to Namche.

Day 13 : Trek to Lukla (2,860m / 9,383 ft)

Today marks your final day of trekking. The route follows the Dudhi Koshi River all the way back down to Lukla, where you'll spend your last night in the mountains.
