    Message Regarding flight to/from Lukla

    During the peak trekking season (March-May and September-November ), all the Lukla flights will be held via Manthali Airport in Ramechhap due to the traffic congestion at Tribhuvan International Airport.

    Trip Overview

    Do you want to look further into the Himalayas and experience the glory of reaching the foothill of the world’s highest mountain? The Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek is just what you are looking for! It is a high-end trekking experience to the base camp of the world's highest peak, Mount Everest, in Nepal. Our trekking package is a beautiful yet exciting one.

    Our unique journey takes you to experience breathtaking views of some of the world's most majestic peaks, including Mount Everest, Lhotse, and Nuptse.

    Our trek is for those who want to immerse themselves in the stunning beauty of the Himalayas while enjoying the best they have to offer. It is perfect for trekkers who want to combine adventure with comfort.

    Accommodation Differences

    There is a difference in facilities you can enjoy in a regular Everest Base Camp Trek and Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek.

    In a regular Everest Base Camp Trek, you’ll be allocated to a 3-star hotel in Kathmandu. Whereas in this luxury trek package, you’ll be staying four days at a 5-star category hotel in Kathmandu. The facilities provided in this hotel will be completely amazing, and you’ll be happy with the services as well.

    Secondly, in the Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek, you’ll be accommodating at luxury lodges better than the ordinary lodges in Lukla, Phakding, and Namche Bazaar.

    Best Highlights

    • Begin the journey with an intense flying experience to one of the most dangerous airports in the world- Lukla Airport.
    • Mingle with the Sherpa people and experience their life in the remote mountains of Nepal.
    • Explore the Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
    • Make a visit to the Sherpa Culture Museum to observe the ancient artifacts of sherpas.
    •  Take a short hike to Everest View Hotel from Namche to revitalize the close-up view of Everest.
    • Visit the famous Tengboche Monastery, one of the Khumbu region's largest and most significant monasteries.
    •  Reach the famous Everest Base Camp, located at an altitude of 5,364 meters, and experience the thrill of being so close to the top of the world.
    •  Hike to Kala Patthar for the breathtaking sunrise view above the summit of Everest.
    • Get a glimpse of the famous Hillary School in Namche Bazaar, which is named after Sir Edmund Hillary.
    •  Visit the Khumbu Glacier and see the massive blocks of ice and rock that make up this incredible natural formation.

    Route Outline

    As you arrive at the Tribhuvan International Airport, a representative from our company will greet you and then transfer you to the hotel in Kathmandu. After a sightseeing tour in Kathmandu, the real journey to the Everest Base Camp begins with a thrilling flight to Lukla.

    Upon landing at Lukla airport, you'll walk for approx 3 hours to Phakding for an overnight stay. The route then follows the Dudh Koshi River to reach Namche Bazar. Taking a day to let your body acclimate to high altitude, you will hike to Tengboche, known for its historic monastery. Now, ascending further into the mountains, you'll pass through small villages like Dingboche and Lobuche before marching towards the Everest Base Camp. In Dingboche, you'll stay an extra night for acclimatization and a hike to Nagerjun Hill.

    The next stop is the base camp of Mount Everest. After reaching the Everest Base Camp, you'll later make your way back to Gorekshep to stay there for the night. Subsequently, you'll hike to Kala Pathar for a close-up view of Mt Everest. On your way back, you'll retrace your steps to Namche Bazar via Pheriche and then to Lukla. Taking the beauty once more, you'll fly back to Kathmandu with a heart full of memories and a camera full of pictures.

    Experience the ultimate adventure as you take on the Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek.

    Best Time

    Did the Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek catch your attention?  And are you wondering when the best time to embark on this journey is? The answer is simple: Spring (March-May) and Autumn (September-November).

    The two seasons mark the ideal time for trekking in the Everest region. The temperature is mild, and the sky is clear during these times, making it an ideal time to appreciate the panoramic views of the mountains fully. Although both are considered the best times, trekking during these two seasons offers two different experiences. The spring season brings back warmth and life to Nepal. The trails during this time are beautifully covered with the bloom of Rhododendrons. Likewise, the Autumn months make you witness a different color change in Nature.

    Trekking during the months of winter (December to February) and monsoon (June-August) is attainable as well. However, the temperature drops significantly, and the chances of snowfall are high during these months. This can make the trek more challenging and also impact the trail conditions. This can make it difficult to appreciate the beauty of the region and pose safety concerns.

    These two seasons are the least busy seasons for trekking. Henceforth if you want to avoid crowds, you may opt for these seasons.

    Difficulty Level

    After coming this far in the overview, are you now wondering how difficult the journey to Everest  Base Camp is?

    While reaching the foothill of the world’s highest mountain is an adventure of a lifetime, it is not without its challenges. With high altitude, rugged terrain, and sometimes unpredictable weather, this trek is not for the faint of heart. But with proper preparation and a healthy dose of determination, anyone can conquer the difficulties of this incredible trek and reach the base of the world's tallest peak.

    Physically, this trek requires a high level of fitness, with daily hikes that can last for up to 8 hours and cover as much as 12 miles per day. It involves long hours of walking, sometimes on steep and uneven trails, with altitudes ranging from 2,834 meters to 5,364 meters. The thin air at high altitudes can cause altitude sickness, which can be debilitating for some trekkers. Acclimatizing slowly and properly is crucial to reduce the risk of altitude sickness. Keeping your health as our top priority, we have prepared this package with enough acclimatization days.

    So if you're up for an adventure and want to push your limits, Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek is the perfect challenge for you!

    Alternative Treks

    Now, let’s look into the other trekking journeys similar to Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek.

    The first one that we have is the standard 16-Day Everest Base Camp Trek. It follows the same itinerary as the EBC luxury Trek but has different accommodation options. In this package, you’ll stay in a 3-star hotel in Kathmandu and normal tea houses along the way. This standard package is also relatively cheaper than the luxury one.

    The other journey strikingly similar to the EBC Luxury Trek is the 11-Day Luxury Everest Base Camp Heli Trek. With the shortened days, the trek follows a relatively similar itinerary. What differentiates this from the Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek is that in this trek package, you will fly over the Himalayas from Kala Pathar directly to Kathmandu city in a helicopter. It will let you enjoy an aerial view of the entire Everest peaks.

    Nevertheless, all our trek packages promise an amazing experience in the Himalayas. And if you want to customize it, we will gladly do so. You have to tell us about your preferences, and we can make it happen for you.

      • Mother- Daughter adventure

        Nepal Hiking Team provided a great adventure! I really appreciate the clear and rapid communication before the trip - Ganga answered any question that I had within 24 hours. Once in Nepal everything was handled really well. The trek, with Arun as our guide, was amazing. We were not able to make it to EBC as altitude illness was a problem, but Arun and the team were able to pivot and take care of us and always made us feel safe. Our porter Prim was so cheerful and helpful too. I would recommend this group to anyone.

      • The trekking of our lifes! Best travel agency and best guide!

        Nov 2022 | From TripAdvisor

        We just got back from Everest Base Camp (with Ama Dablam base camp also) and I can say that it was the best trip of my life. The trekking is heavy (much more than I imagined) and prior preparation is required, but despite the difficulty it was wonderful to spend 14 days in the middle of the Himalayas. Nepal Hiking Team agency was perfect from start to finish, all our demands were met. Our family members needed to return before the end (they used the World Nomads insurance that sent a helicopter) and the agency organized all the bureaucracy, we didn't bother with anything.

        Our guide NARAYAN was more than perfect, he was not just a guide, but a friend, a travel companion. Super sweet, polite, he knew everything there, he was the best guide I've ever had considering all the trips I've done. Porters were also amazing! I strongly recommend the agency, I saw many people who did it on their own and had health problems and had difficulty in claiming insurance.

        There I realized that it is very common to have to change itinerary or even return earlier, and having an agency that organizes everything for you is essential. I came back extremely satisfied with having chosen Nepal Hiking Team.

      • Unforgettable Trek to Everest Base Camp with NHT

        I have two nicknames for Nepal Hiking Team: 1. The “No Problem” team: 2. The “Can Do” team.  They made Everest Base Camp Trek a “can do” with “no problem” for our pair of two elderly ladies.

        We did the Everest Base Camp Trek in April 2019. From the very first email till the end of our trip, nothing was too big or too small for Mr. Ganga Raj Thapa – the founding manager. He kept a perfect balance in giving a 100% attention to our safety and comfort. Our emails- each one of them were answered in less than 24 hours. Do you even sleep Mr Ganga?

        NHT took great care of our interests and comfort by making a customary itinerary not just before the trek but during the trek as well. Concerned about the long trek up to Namche on Day 2? No problem. We can modify the itinerary to hike further on Day 1 so you have more time for that climb into Namche. Want to hike Kalapattar in the afternoon instead of the morning? Again, no problem in switching the days around. The most impressive “can do” and “no problem” was the helicopter flight Mr. Ganga from Gorakshep that Mr. Ganga arranged for us during our descend. Not of it was pre planned yet, he would make it look like slicing a block of butter!

        A special five star shout out goes to our guide, Bhim and our porter Raj. To us, Bhim was the extention of Mr. Ganga. We were his sole concern and preoccupation during the trip. There was never a doubt in his mind that we would reach the base camp. It must be his confidence and encouragement that took us to the base camp. No one was prouder (and more relieved) to see these two older ladies reach their goal. Thank you, Bhim and Raj for being our cheer leaders.

        The logistics and preparations from NHT were accurate and meticulous. From airport pick-up to the final farewell, NHT went way beyond their limits to make our trip successful. They even went out to upgrade the accommodation as per our ease. Thanks a lot NHT; we had a trip of a lifetime!

        We’d definitely recommend NHT without a second thought.

      • The best trekking agency in Nepal

        My whole family went to Nepal in May and we had a very detailed plan about specific things that I wanted with the whole journey. Upon my conversation with Mr. Ganga, everything was arranged for my family’s requirements. My mother was also with us and because of this, NHT arranged for a pony for her. The accommodations at the Yeti Mountain Homes were very comfortable. The best thing about the journey that I really liked was the flexibility. One of my family had a mild case of altitude sickness and so arrangements for her to stay at the hotel until we returned back after trekking further on was made. Everything was handled with care and no hassles. It was all very professional. We were provided with good transportation services, and the meals in the mountains were also of good quality. My two guides, Narayan and Paban were always on the lookout for my family and showed good care for them. The Himals were also gorgeous and the villages were very fascinating to explore. It was a good vacation with my family and Nepal Hiking Team’s good services and flexibility helped make vacation into what it is. It is one of the best trekking agencies and definitely is deserving of my recommendation.
