Trip Overview

The Everest Luxury Trek with Cultural Tours is the ultimate combination of the majestic mountains, the comfortable accommodations and the cultural opulence of Nepal. Experience the breath-taking beauty of the Himalayas in a quaint and comfortable fashion as you enjoy the high-class hotels and lodges along your trek. Delight in the exotic nature of multicultural aspects that Nepal is famous for. Get ready to revel in the mountain surrounding of the beautiful Khumbu with Mount Everest and many neighboring peaks as your constant companion in this epic adventure. Savor the hidden river valleys and isolated villages located at the foothills of Himalayas all the while getting the best services and world-class accommodations even at desolate terrains that seem to be situated at mountain crevasses. It is a grand escapade that you surely do not want to miss out on!

Start the Everest Luxury Trek with Cultural Tours with a beautiful flight from the capital to Lukla. The flight in itself is a little adventure as you will get to see the changing terrains of the land from the hill-belt to that of Rocky Mountains and deep green gorges. Enjoy the forthcoming views of the distant Himalayas as well upon landing at Lukla. Take in the Himalayan surrounding so different from the bustling city of Kathmandu that you can immediately feel as you enter the Khumbu. Furthermore, make your way to various highlights of the Khumbu- like the mountain town of Namche Bazaar and the holy Tengboche Monastery. Correspondingly, you will also get to enjoy the rich Sherpa culture of the Khumbu along the trip as you make your way into popular villages like Thame and Tashinga.

Finally, the Everest Luxury Trek with Cultural Tours brings you back to Kathmandu for an educational and amazing cultural tour of the old city. As a matter of fact, the Kathmandu city is considered to have one of the densest concentrations of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the world lying close to one another. As such, you can enjoy the four UNESCO Sites that consist of Hindu and Buddhist temples and revered Stupa along with an excursion of the famed Durbar Square of the city that dates all the way back to the medieval times. Each of the cultural and historical sites of the city presents a deep-rooted beauty and legend behind their perseverance. The woodwork, metal work and stone masonry done on the doors and windows of the buildings and monuments are definitely something that will give you the feel of authentic Nepali dexterity.

Moreover, on the final part of the trip, you can enjoy a flight from the capital to the much-celebrated tourist hotspot of the country- the Pokhara city. The Everest Luxury Trek with Cultural Tours takes you to famous landmarks of Pokhara, like the Tal Barahi Temple, the city’s Shanti Stupa, the Bindhyabasini Temple and the Davi’s fall among others. You can also enjoy a serene boat ride on the clam waters of the Phewa Lake that is situated right next to the city. Similarly, get ready to enjoy the panoramic views of the city itself as well as the Annapurna Mountains from the vantage point of Sarangkot along the trip. 

Likewise, on the aspect of comfort and services- the trip is also not lacking in this regard. You will be staying at the five-star Yak and Yeti Hotel in Kathmandu, and on Everest Summit Lodges and Yeti Mountain Homes while trekking in the Khumbu. It is a perfect blend of the natural, cultural and the Himalayan beauty of Nepal. It is an adventure that presents the best aspects of all ethos of the country in a short amount of time. Thus, do not miss out on this wonderful trip with Nepal Hiking Team!

Kim Phipat, Australia

The Short Everest Trek with cultural tours was perfect for me and my friend because we had a limited time in Nepal because of our deadline. We were still able to enjoy the mountains with the Short Everest Trek and the experience was just amazing! From our first commutation with Mr. Ganga, we knew that we would be fine doing the trek because he was very prompt with the responses and very reassuring. Narayan was our guide and he was perfect at his work as well. The schedule was followed to the tee and fortunately, we did not have any delays during the Lukla return flight either. Everything worked out extremely well, and we are both very happy with the experience. We got good transport to the airport, the guesthouses were good, we enjoyed our meals, the village people were very friendly, the mountain sceneries from the villages were also amazing, everything was done in the most professional way and we had the best time of our lives! Nepal Hiking Team is the best! 

Bogdan Ilie, USA My wife and I were lucky to have chosen Nepal Hiking Team to plan our trip. We opted for a private guide and had a porter as well. We waited at the airport, and we were dropped off there as well when we left Nepal. Our guide, Ram, made sure that our trip was organized flawlessly and that we were doing well and happy at all times. He chose the best available teahouses, and we were allowed to chose the food from the menu in all of them (there seem to be agencies that say you can either choose dal bhat or pay out of pocket). We were even served, during dinner, sliced apples carried by the porter. Ram was very knowledgeable, and he shared information related to mountain peaks, vegetation, and animals. As we saw, his English skills are excellent. Above all, he is friendly and has a positive attitude, so we enjoyed talking and interacting with him. The porter, Bhola, was also very friendly. He looked like he was 50 kg but carried 55-65 kg easily. Overall, it was a fantastic once-in-a-lifetime experience to which Ram, Bhola, and Nepal Hiking Team contributed substantially. One of the owners, Ganga, even offered free rides to do the PCR tests or other purposes. We couldn't have hoped for better treatment from this agency.

Lucie H, UK In May this year - some friends and I joined the NHT For 16 days. Every fine detail was considered, with our guides and porters going above & beyond to ensure we were comfortable and happy. Their knowledge and experience created a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for us all. I have no hesitation in recommending Nepal Hiking Team to anyone! They made this experience perfect, thank you, guys.  
Mike, USA I went with my girlfriend to the Everest Base Camp with a guide and porter from Nepal Hiking Team. Right from the pick-up from the airport, we felt like valued clients, and we were made to feel very welcome and relaxed in an otherwise hectic city. From the moment the trek started, our guide Bheg ensured we were comfortable and constantly checked on our physical state throughout each day and provided advice and assistance where we needed it. Overall, the experience was one I'll never forget, primarily because I proposed at the top and because the Nepal Hiking team made the experience as stress-free and as organized as possible, all with a smile on their face at all times. I highly recommend NHT.
Megan Y., China Ganga, Balaram, and the team were fantastic; even when we had a 24-hour flight delay, they re-scheduled everything without fuss or fee. We had an excellent driver for just us (and guide where we had them). We even changed things along the way, and whether the driver, guide, or agent, they were more than willing to help and be flexible. :) The trip took in some hiking, some sightseeing, some relaxing, the jungle, and for each occasion and location, we were provided a specialist guide for the event/location. The hotels they chose for us were precisely our requirements based on the activity we were experiencing on any given day. Balaram even met us many times in person to round off the experience and ensure all was well and take honest feedback in person - the personal touch makes you feel even more appreciated and welcome as a customer. We would recommend anyone contact the team if they are planning a trip to Nepal. Thank you, guys, for a memorable vacation.
