Trip Overview

The Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek is a perfect combination of luxury trekking with one of the most famous and sought-after trekking journey in the world. Trek to the base camp of Mount Everest, all the while taking in the amazingly diverse and vibrant landscape and topography of the Khumbu region, its rich Sherpa culture and prominence and it’s ethereal Himalayan ranges as you enjoy the height of luxury that is available in the remote and isolated mountains of Nepal. It is an ideal package that caters towards finer hotels and better accommodations at locations in the Khumbu like Phakding, Lukla and Namche Bazaar. Start off the trek with an amazing tour of the Kathmandu valley where you will visit cultural heritage sites like the city’s Durbar Square and its Buddhist and Hindu temples. Take a dramatic short flight to Lukla from the capital and enjoy the fascinating views of the changing terrains below as the plane flies around mountains and tall hills to land at the Lukla Airport- one of the most daring airports in the world. Feel the difference in the air as you inhale fresh crisp Himalayan wind when you arrive at Lukla to begin your trek to the base camp of the world’s tallest mountain peak. Furthermore, revel in the luxury of the grand accommodation while there, and savor the opulence of first-class service that is the specialty of the Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek.

Make your way through the deep river valleys and cross glacial rivers like the Imja and the Dudh Koshi to arrive at famous Khumbu villages like Namche Bazaar and Tengboche. Observe the Sherpa culture and traditions of the local mountain people and immerse yourself in the sight of magnificent mountain peaks like Everest, Changtse, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Kongdi RI, the Kusum Kangraru and the Thamserku among many others as they appear at the foreground of the valleys and towns while on the trekking trail. Hike under the canopy of rhododendron and azalea flowers as you walk on paths surrounded by verdant alpine woods of the Sagarmatha National Park. Then celebrate your accomplishment as you reach the base camp of Mount Everest, a base that is located right in the centre of the Himalayas and surrounded by vast expanses of ice and snow. Follow the trail alongside the Khumbu Glacier and the Khumbu Icefall as you trudge besides the icy moraine. Visit Kalapatthar, a famous vantage point of the region popular for its panorama of the entire Mount Everest massif. The Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek presents the opportunity to really saturate oneself in the Khumbu region’s many attributes with the added revelation of finer accommodations.

If you are tight on your travel budget, you can also choose our standard 16-Days Everest Base Camp Trek package as well which includes three-star category hotel in Kathmandu and the best available lodges throughout the trekking journey rather than the 5-star hotel in Kathmandu and the Yeti Mountain Home between Lukla and Namche in the Luxury Trek.

With the best care, optimal services and flexible itineraries, we are guaranteed to make your trekking vacation an absolutely amazing affair. So get ready to be basked in the many glories of the Everest region’s beautiful hallmarks like its diverse terrain, its prominent Sherpa culture and its Himalayan presence for an experience that really is breath-taking and a once in a lifetime adventure!

Reviews

Margarita Padilla, United Kingdom 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.
Benjamin Voorhoeve, New Zealand 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.
Jeff, North America Just got back from Nepal a couple of days ago, where my partner and I were doing an Everest Base Camp Trek assisted by Nepal Hiking Team. Their service couldn't have been better. I started planning this trip last Spring and looked at numerous trekking companies. Chose NHT due to the tremendously positive reviews on them, the professionalism of their website, and the quick response I got from Ganga when I sent an initial inquiry via their website -- he phoned me within a few hours, apparently as soon as the morning had come round to Nepal (given the time difference between North America and Nepal). He was extremely helpful and responsive from the start, all the way through the completion of our trek and the last couple of days back in Kathmandu. Our guide for the trek, Bhim, couldn't have been more helpful and took very good care of us and kept us safe. The whole operation and experience couldn't have been more positive.
Marcel, South Africa We recently returned from an EPIC trekking adventure to Everest Base Camp with the Nepal Hiking Team. Due to some time restraints we trekked on the cusp of the season, started our trek on 30th Aug, and returned to Kathmandu on the 10th of Sept, and what a great decision that was! The weather was amazing, we had most of the tea-houses to ourselves, our guides were on their first trip after the second wave of the covid 19. So it was great for them as well to witness everything as if for the first time. If you prefer a more 'quiet' trek, then I would recommend going on the cusp of the season! Our guide Raj of Nepal Hiking Team, did everything in his power to make the trip a most memorable trip and our wonderful porter who's name happens to be 'Love' totally lived up to his name! I cannot thank the Nepal Hiking Team enough for all their prep work, the guide's knowledge and caring for our welfare, and Ganga, the father of the group who personally met us at the airport and made sure that all our needs were met. What a great team, I highly recommend Nepal Hiking Team for your future Himalayan trekking!
Raymond Low, Singapore Nepal Hiking Team provide an excellent guide to me when I hiked Everest Base Camp. My guide, Mr. Prakesh Rai, is very professional and caring... He always gives me very informative replies whenever I have a question or two about the terrain which we are trekking, the history of certain towns or places we passed by or stayed...He is always asking how I am (my old right ankle injury came back)...and will help me carry my load.... We had a good time together especially when we take photographs of the awesome scenery.....He works tirelessly and would be a concern for my diet and always asked me if I had enough of food, hows my leg was, and whether feeling ok especially when we are going towards a higher altitude..... We had a wonderful acclimatization climb and he is always observing me how I am doing. Nepal Hiking Team rocks!.... And I would sincerely recommend my friends to this group..... It’s simply awesome!... Thank you Nepal Hiking team and it's truly a great experience traveling with your professional guide!
