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! 

Jaime, United States of America I did the Everest Base Camp tours with Nepal Hiking Team in October this year, and it was the most fantastic moment of my life! Prakash picked us up at the airport with marigold and silk scarves garlands, which was a very touching hospitable Nepali welcome. Then, as we were driven to the hotel, he explained our program to us about the Everest Base Camp. The sightseeing tour around Kathmandu Valley was very insightful as well. I had the valley tour before starting the trek to Everest's base camp. The heritage sights in Kathmandu and the durbar squares were excellent to look at. The valley of Kathmandu, or the city more like, was crowded with people, and the area around Thamel, where we had our hotel’s location as well, was filled with so many shops at every corner of the street and small temples, it was bizarre! Trek ten started with the flight to Lukla, and the trekking journey to Everest's base camp was beautiful! The many tiny villages and the settlements along the trail were different from the crowded Kathmandu and provided a drastic change in scenery from the city. The villages had the feeling of being so far away from all the busyness of the city, and the people seemed much calmer and peaceful there. The lifestyle of the people in those village areas was genuinely inspiring, and I enjoyed my time there a lot. The guesthouses and the tiny lodges that we were accommodated in were comfortable, and the people were hospitable. In fact, the higher we trekked, the more hospitable they were! Prakash then proceeded to guide us throughout the trekking journey, and the sceneries of the mountains and the villages were everything I had imagined it would be. The settlement at Namche was beautiful, and we had a look around the Art Gallery the Sherpa Culture Museum as well. The sights of the mountains were extraordinary! Nepal Hiking Team managed everything, and all of the transactions and the arrangements were made skillfully. The guide, Mr. Prakash Sapkota, was also beneficial. The head office staff were also available all the time to me, which was super convenient. I loved my vacation in Nepal, climbing the Everest Base Camp. Nepal Hiking Team did an outstanding and satisfactory job accompanying me in my journey. The trek was also done at a reasonable price, and I would recommend Nepal Hiking Team to people.
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.
