Trip Overview

The Himalayas are one of the world’s most spectacular landscapes, with soaring snow-capped peaks, undulating slopes shrouded in cloud, enchanting alpine woods. This fantastic 16-day adventure brings you to the gorgeous and lavish Everest region, giving you something different and the opportunity to experience life in the Himalayas. Feel your senses awaken to the beat of the blowing wind. The journey passes through ethnic settlements, cliffside monasteries, and juniper woods while getting breathtaking views of the Himalayas. Begin the coveted Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek and feast your eyes on beautiful vistas as you climb through the Khumbu area.

Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek starts from busy and beautiful Kathmandu, but the official trek commences with the heart-pounding short plane flight to Lukla Airport. The route from Lukla takes you through river valleys and glacial rivers like the Imja and the Dudh Koshi before arriving at famed Khumbu communities like Namche Bazaar and Tengboche. Here, trekkers get to observe the Sherpa customs and traditions of the native Sherpa people and immerse themselves in the glimpse of magnificent mountain peaks such as Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Kongdi RI, Changtse, the Kusum Kangraru, and the Thamserku, among many others, as they appear in the proximity of valleys and towns while trekking.

The journey also involves hiking through the Sagarmatha National Park’s beautiful alpine woodlands, enveloped by a canopy of rhododendron and azalea blossoms. Then, once you approach Mount Everest’s base camp, celebrate your triumph of reaching the lap of the world’s highest mountain. Also, take into the surrounded by enormous stretches of the mountain range. Along the way, the excitement builds as you hike into the Everest foothills every day, spending the first three nights in luxurious mountain lodges in Phakding and Namche Bazar. Admire the breathtaking scenery, discover picturesque valleys and traditional sherpa settlements, and discover the inhabitants’ daily lives and traditions.

Besides exciting cultures, the grand and majestic monasteries are other fascinating aspects of Everest Base Camp Trekking. Tengboche Monastery being the famed one, the hiking trail is full of several small but important monasteries. These religious figures show the local’s spiritual aspect as the region is quite keen on Buddhism. Beyond Tengboche, the trek continues along with charming parishes of Dingboche, Lobuche, and some more. Afterward, wade along the Khumbu Glacier and the Khumbu Icefall to Everest Base Camp for entrancing up-close mountain scenes. Kalapatthar, a well-known vantage point in the region, offers splendid panoramic views of the whole Mount Everest range, so brace yourself a bit more and get ready for the Kala Patthar hike. It is a bit arduous yet completely worthwhile.

It is an exclusive trekking journey to the most beautiful destination in Nepal peppered with unforgettable experiences, pleasing vistas, and the additional delight of more excellent lodgings. This luxury vacation is a recommended itinerary for anyone looking to explore the mountain delights lavishly.

Everest Base Camp Trek, in general, is a moderate trekking journey, although it is a high-altitude trek. The most concerning aspect of the walk is altitude sickness as it directly starts from 2800 meters at Lukla airport. However, if trekkers maintain their walking pace, do not rush the trek, and stay hydrated, they will have a smooth journey. Similarly, trekkers must use all the acclimatization days set for the trip. Acclimatization is the most critical aspect of trekking as it allows the trekker’s body to adjust to the surroundings.

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.
Hareth Alsaadi, Phillipines I went for Everest base camp trip by mid-Dec 2021. I was a little worried as I never went trekking in my entire life.. however, i did a lot of research and came across Nepal Hiking Team so I decided after much thought to go with them Initially, I was in contact with Ganga the CEO of the company... i was highly satisfied with his interaction and communication with me right from the beginning.. i had so many questions and concerns regarding the trip and he was able to guide me and answer me all my inquiries... the on-boarding process was smooth and easy.. when i arrived in Nepal I found everything ready starting from the person picking me up from the airport, the hotel, some equipment for the trek, full introductory meeting on what to expect from the journey, all ground transportation, and even before i left Nepal after the trek.. a PCR staff was provided and came to my hotel... As for my trekking guide Prakash. i am truly happy that i had him as my guide.. a very spectacular human being.. he was more than a guide.. he was a great companion as well.. he ensured that i was having a good time.. continuously shared his expertise of mountains, Sherpa people, and Nepalese culture.. he always went the extra mile to support me... even at days when it was tough for me to continue due to altitude sickness.. he encouraged me and inspired me not to give up on this lifetime journey.. he always puts health and safety first.. Despite all the challenges of Everest Base Camp trek.. but i am very glad i did it... and i did it with an excellent group of people.. Nepal Hiking Team.. i highly recommend them for anyone intends to go trekking in Nepal. Read this review on trip advisor (click here)
Peter, United States of America My friend and I recently spent 2 weeks in Nepal, guided by the Nepal Hiking Team. Our original trek was canceled by an international company,  and the Nepal Hiking Team stepped in flawlessly. Ganga answered all of our questions, had our safety as his top concern always, was flexible, and was gracious with his hospitality. From Kathmandu, Pokhara, to the various tea villages, all the way to ABC, our Nepal Hiking Team was phenomenal. Our guide Arjun and porter Prem were first class, helping us navigate and learn about the terrain, giving us sage advice, and also making sure we had a great time (thanks for the wine!). I felt truly connected with them and it was hard to leave! A massive thank you to the entire team. Let's summit one of those monsters together soon!
William Belue, USA Nepal Hiking was incredible starting with the airport pick up all the way to drop off at the end of the trip. I had a scenario in which the airline lost my luggage and NHT arrange for my boots to be delivered via helicopter. This alone speaks to the level of care they provide their clients. Our guide, Bal, was one of the most knowledgeable people I’ve had the opportunity to meet and his attention to detail truly made this experience for me. The accommodations, food, gear, etc all blew my expectations out of the water. If you are looking for a guided Nepal experience, please look no further. I met other trekkers along my journey who were paying more and receiving less. This trip was a surprise birthday present and I am already planning my next trip back.
