Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek

Quick Details

Unparalleled Luxury Everest Base camp trekking experience

We are now able to offer the Ultimate Luxury Everest Base camp trekking experience that is unparalleled to our esteemed trekkers. There are “luxury lodges” until the village of Pangboche; above this village, we use the best available lodges that have double glazed windows, the most comfortable rooms that are possible to construct in this cold environment. You will have a total of eight nights in luxury lodges and four nights in the best available lodges on this trekking adventure.

Our team will make this a memorable experience for you with attention to detail like no other trekking companies do. Our expert trek leader will fulfill your hunger for knowledge about the rich culture, history, religion, and a lot more.

Now with the added luxury of “Wellness Adventures,” our trekking chef will serve you food that uses superfood as ingredients to help you get the best nourishment to help achieve this goal that probably has been on your bucket list for several years. We have added additional rest days, during the trek to allow for proper acclimatization to lower the risks of altitude sickness.

Our itinerary is designed uniquely from what other trekking companies offer. We include a hike up to the rarely visited Ama Dablam Base Camp. We will be following in the footsteps of the great mountaineering teams, hiking through the Sherpa region, walking past potato fields and villages before the hard work begins as we climb up to Namche Bazaar.

The scenery above the treeline is dry but still breathtaking. The impressive monastery at Thyangboche is wonderfully set against the backdrop of Mount AmaDablam, Everest and other snow-capped peaks.

The hike up to Amadablam base camp provides the opportunity to walk from the treeline to high altitude alpine forest and the summer grazing pastures with stunning views of the Maha-Langgur range that are not seen from the main trail to Everest Base Camp.

We also take this opportunity to climb Kala Pathar (5,545m), which is higher than the Everest Base camp for the ultimate view of Mt. Everest (8,850 m). The Everest Base Camp situated on the Khumbu Glacier.
