What makes your Everest Base Camp Trek Luxury?

The accommodations and helicopter service provided during the Everest Base Camp Trek provide travelers with high quality and comfort while minimizing stress and trouble. It involves a superior travel encounter with little hassle and lots of conveniences. Likewise, Everest Luxury vacationers are particular about the items they need for an engaging experience while on their trip.

Walking up Mount Everest is one of the greatest ways to see it, but it need not be uncomfortable. Luxury hikes in the Everest region recommended by our specialists let you combine the utmost in comfort and luxury with adventurous discovery. These hikes take you authentically and stylishly through some of the most breathtaking places on earth revolving around Everest. 

The key factor that sets apart a regular trek from a luxury trek is the cost. While a regular trek comes at a standard price, luxury treks are quoted at a higher cost but offer a truly worthwhile experience. Some other factors are- 

1. Meals And Accommodations

By this point, you may have guessed it, and you are correct. All your Luxurious Everest base camp trek revolves mainly around the Luxury accommodations from day 1 of your Everest base camp trek. 

In the non-luxurious Everest base camp trek, you will dine and relax at teahouses run by locals on the typical journey. Likewise, basic local culinary options are offered at those teahouses.

On the other hand, the luxury lodge trip includes luxury lodges that provide a variety of menus, including both international and continental cuisine and local cuisine.

Regarding lodging, a teahouse often provides a bedroom with beds (either twin-sharing or single) and a table (basic furnishings). At the same time, luxury lodges allow you to take advantage of lovely decor and high-quality furnishings. 

2. Luxurious Amenities

The luxury lodge offers luxurious lodging with Western comforts. Most teahouses either don't have hot water showers or charge extra for them. However, there is nothing to worry about in a luxury lodge. Teahouses have relatively tiny rooms, but luxury lodges have larger rooms. Simply said, the standard trek gives basic amenities, whereas the deluxe lodge trip offers luxury amenities.

Unlike luxury lodges, the Normal trip (or teahouse trip) offers the most fundamental facilities. But don't worry, the teahouse's room is simple and clean. Most teahouse rooms are two stories tall with a thatched roof, a wooden bed, a heavy blanket, and a pillow; if you're lucky, your room will also have an attached bathroom.

3. Easy Time Frame With Helicopter

Comparing normal treks to EBC luxury treks, the former tends to be considerably longer in duration. A typical itinerary for a normal tour spans several weeks, and involves extensive trekking. On the other hand, a luxury Everest Base Camp trek usually takes around 14 days to complete.

For example, the Everest Base Camp Trek typically requires at least 15-16 days to finish. It involves 9-12 days to reach the base camp of Everest and another five days to return to Kathmandu. And the fact that the accommodations are only a basic type in a normal one makes the trek harder to complete. Whereas the Luxury trek involves Lukla Helicopter service. This means you do not have to take a regular and time-consuming flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and back. 

During a normal trek, you'll spend hours hiking each day, averaging around 5-6 hours, and find rest at tea houses along the way. However, in a luxury lodge trek, the experience is quite different. You'll primarily walk or hike but without the exertion and fatigue of strenuous days. Instead, you'll relish the luxury of the trek and savor the unparalleled views of the Himalayas from the comfort of a helicopter.

4. More Safety And Guide

Everest luxury treks focus solely on your interests, desires, and discomfort. This means our experienced guides will manage all your discomforts and issues. They also have more comprehensive safety protocols to include any safety concerns while trekking. Also, if required emergency evacuation is available, the preparation will be carefully organized, ensuring immediate medical assistance.

Best Lodge on an EBC Trip and Memorable Adventure Journey

The trek lasts 14 days and includes 13 nights spent in the trek area. You will spend six of these thirteen nights in the prosperous Yeti Mountain Home, which is located in Lukla, Phakding, and Namche. The remaining nights will be spent in typical luxury lodging in Tengboche, Dingboche, Lobuche, and Gorakshep.

You will need to stay in Kathmandu for two nights, and you can choose between the Ramada Encore or the Hotel Malla.  

Some mountain lodges highlight giving guests comfort and luxury rather than just a place to sleep for the night. Lukla, Phakding, Namche Bazaar, Dingboche, and Lbuche have several locations of the Yeti Mountain Home Luxury Lodge chain and Mountain Heritage Inn. The Everest Summit Lodge network is also along the trail in several locations to benefit those who enjoy luxury. You can also decide to stay the night at the Everest View Hotel, located at the highest elevation, and view the mountains from your room's window. 

You can simply enjoy the company of a skilled, approachable, and knowledgeable guide. Porters will carry your bags for you. Both of you and they need to be comfortable.

Because you will be in front of four of the world's sixth tallest peaks—Mt Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Makalu, and Mt. Cho Oyu stands tall above everything in view—you may simply spend time walking, taking pictures, and admiring the majesty of the Himalayas. Just take in the beauty of the surroundings—the Himalayas, the mountains, the terrain, the prayer flags that flutter in the breeze, the suspension bridges, and the sound of raging rivers.

Except for the walk, there is nothing to worry about. Additionally, renting a pony is an alternative if you don't want to walk. The meticulously planned itineraries consider the acclimatization process. The standard practice is to keep two acclimatization days, the first at Namche Bazaar (3440m) and the second at Dingboche (4490m), but if you choose, you can modify your journey and add one or two more days to your trekking schedule to eliminate the risk of getting altitude sickness.

The luxurious Everest base camp trek starts after a brief but beautiful flight to Lukla. You will rise in the helicopter, which helps to add some luxury and take in the mountain vistas.

As soon as you land in Lukla, mountains encircle you. Sagarmatha National Park's trail runs beside Sherpa settlements and provides numerous opportunities for breathtaking mountain scenery photography. You first get to see Mount Everest (8848 m) as you arrive at Namche Bazaar, a town that is also known as the Sherpa capital. 

From this point on, your trekking journey officially starts. We will take a cautious approach and receive the appropriate acclimatization as we proceed along the traditional route to the base camp. There are two significant acclimatization days planned in Namche and Dingboche. You will ascend high and sleep low on both days to let your body adjust to the higher altitude. We trek to Lukla back and then take a helicopter ride to Kathmandu. 

Is There a Luxury Hotel or Resort Every Day Along the EBC Trekking Route?

Luxury travel packages to Nepal are becoming increasingly popular, although they are only offered in the Everest and Annapurna regions. Luxury lodge treks in the Everest region offer excellent lodging and superior transportation. 

Moreover, only tea houses and simple lodges were available along the Everest hiking path a few years ago. Still, today the area is blossoming with hotels and lodges that don't skimp on luxury, comfort, elegance, or authenticity. This means that along the EBC Trekking Route, you will receive a Luxury Hotel or Resort daily. 

The best luxury accommodations, a stylish helicopter tour, and a wealth of the natural and cultural treasures of the Nepalese Himalayas are all combined in a luxury lodge trek in the Everest region. Above 3,000 meters above sea level, the Everest region is home to several luxurious hotels. Some of the Everest region's high-end accommodations, such as the Yeti Mountain Home in Kongde, the Hotel Everest View in Syangboche, and the Everest Summit Lodge in Monjo, will wow you. 

Hotel Everest View, situated at an impressive altitude of 3,880m, proudly holds the Guinness World Record as the highest-placed hotel globally. While this luxurious hotel visit is not included in the standard itinerary, you can add it during your stay in Namche Bazaar. 

Alongside this exceptional property, other renowned hotels like Himalayan Devi, Oxygen Altitude Home or New EBC, and Yeti Mountain Home hotels await you on this journey. These accommodations offer top-notch services and warm hospitality, boasting high-standard facilities such as room heaters, thermos, electric blankets, free Wi-Fi on the hotel premises, and delectable cuisine.

Is this trip right for you?

The Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek is ideal for those who want to climb Everest with the utmost luxury and comfort. The most opulent resort and guest houses in the trekking zone and the five-star hotel in Kathmandu offer elegant and comfortable lodging.

You will enjoy an entirely distinct experience of luxury from the very beginning of the trek, even if the luxury Everest Base Camp Lodge Trek route follows the usual EBC path that every Everest aspirant follows.

Still, the luxury Everest base camp trek takes the same path as the regular trek. This means the difficulty will be the same, and the distance traveled will also be the same. But the only difference between the regular and luxury trek will be the accommodation, amenities, and transportation options. 

The benefits of the EBC luxury trip are not always immediate. EBC is a high-altitude route that takes a significant amount of time to acclimatize. The 80-mile (130-km) journey from Lukla usually takes 14 days of intense trekking (yes, even your "rest days" require walking). 

However, the entire journey takes so many days because it needs to be broken down into manageable portions owing to the altitude, with acclimatization and rest days mixed in. This distance is generally divided into individual daily sections of 8-10 miles (13-16 km). 

Most hikers can hike for no more than 8 hours each day. However, that number may increase slightly as you approach the higher altitude portions of the route because you'll be stopping frequently to take in the beautiful vistas and the increased physical difficulty. 

You'll need to climb a steep 17,598 feet (5,364m) above sea level. The EBC trailhead is reached by a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, which covers 9,400 feet (2,865 meters). Your legs will handle the rest. By ascending to Namche Bazaar, you'll gain roughly 1,800 feet (549m). The following days on the trail (excluding acclimatization days) include an average elevation gain of 1,200–1,600 feet (366-488m). However, it is on less steep paths until you break the tree line near Tengboche. The elevation of Everest Base Camp is no joke and might be challenging for some. 

Routes, Distance And Duration of Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek

Distance 

When trekking from Lukla to Everest Base Camp and back, including acclimatization hikes in Namche Bazaar and Dingboche, as well as the hike up and down Kala Patthar, the total distance covered is approximately 77 miles (123 kilometers). On average, you'll walk around 7.0 miles (11.2 kilometers) daily. 

Average Hiking Hours

Hiking Times Estimating hiking times accurately can be challenging as everyone has different walking paces. Some trekkers may be faster on downhill hikes, while others may be faster on uphills, leading to a wide range of hiking times. Generally talking about the hiking duration for an average hiker is around 62 hours, translating to just over 5.5 hours of hiking per day. Faster hikers complete it in approximately 4 hours daily, whereas slower ones take closer to 7 hours. The shortest days on the trail will be about 3 hours of hiking, while the longest days could extend up to 8 or 9 hours. 

Elevation Gain

One of the main issues almost all trekkers will encounter is elevation gain. Many daily breakdowns mention the net elevation gain from one point to another but fail to account for the overall elevation changes experienced throughout the trail. For example, if you move from Namche Bazaar at 11,286 feet to Tengboche at 12,664 feet, the net elevation gain is 1,378 feet. 

The chart below shows the distance traveled, elevation gain, starting point, ending point, hiking distance, etc.

Nepal has Diversity in weather. Every three months we have weather changes from summer to autumn and winter to Spring. Autumn seasons September, October, and November are the other best seasons.

These seasons offer stable weather with comfortable temperatures, providing clear mountain views under a crisp sky and less humid conditions. In Winter, the trails to higher altitudes may become challenging due to heavy snow, and many teahouses might be closed at higher elevations. On the other hand, Summer brings wet trails from rain and obstructed mountain views due to dense fog.

Despite the more demanding climatic conditions, trekking in these off-seasons is still possible with proper packing and preparation to overcome obstacles. Therefore, the EBC trek can be accomplished throughout the entire year.

Chance to get altitude sickness on a luxury trek

Your Everest Base Camp trek will be full of luxurious accommodations, and food services. However, trekking to Everest base camp in luxury does not mean you will not get altitude sickness at all. In fact, The Luxury EBC trek is the same as the regular EBC trek in case of altitude sickness, so there is a high chance, especially among beginner trekkers, of altitude sickness while trekking (mainly after Namche Bazaar).

Situated in a region renowned for its high elevation, the Everest Base Camp Trek ranks among the world's highest trekking routes. Likewise, the journey typically starts at Lukla Airport, at an altitude of 2,600m, and ascends to a peak height of just over 5,500m at Kala Patthar. The trek takes place in two zones known as 'high altitude' and 'very high altitude.'

Within these high-altitude regions, there exists a risk of altitude-related illnesses. Likewise, the altitude sickness types include Acute Mountain Sickness, High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE), and High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE), which you are likely to get in case the altitude sickness worsens.

Since each trekker's body reacts differently to altitude, irrespective of age and fitness level, but is primarily influenced by genetic makeup, predicting altitude tolerance in advance is impossible. Fortunately, most tour operators include careful altitude climbs and enough rest hours to promote proper acclimatization, relieving you of unnecessary worries. Nevertheless, understanding the symptoms of altitude sickness remains vital to making fast decisions regarding descent or even evacuation, if necessary.

Altitude sickness exposure typically starts among the trekkers at around 3,000m for most individuals, while some might experience symptoms as low as 2,400m. The primary cause of symptoms is often attributed to rapid ascents in high altitudes. In general, ascending more than 500m daily from 2,400m and above raises the risk of altitude sickness. 

Safety Measurements on Everest Luxury Trek

Ensuring safety during your Everest region trek is very important. To guarantee a secure journey, here are essential safety measures to remember before your EBC luxury trek. 

  1. Hire a Reputable Agency and Guide Service:- Choosing a trustworthy trekking agency with experienced guides is crucial for your safety. Seasoned guides are familiar with the terrain and local customs, ensuring a smoother trek. Additionally, a reliable agency takes care of permits, transportation, and accommodation arrangements.
  2. Proper Acclimation:- Remember, adhering to these safety precautions significantly enhances your trekking experience in the Everest region. Likewise, proper acclimatization reduces the chance of getting AMS during your treks.
  3. Stick to the designated path:- During your trek, whether at a luxury Everest base camp or a regular Everest base Camp, always adhere to the marked trekking trails and heed your guide's instructions because wandering off the path while trekking can pose many dangers. 
  4. Stay informed about the weather:- Stay updated with the weather forecast and prepare for sudden changes in conditions. Your guide will have the latest information on weather patterns and can adjust your route accordingly if needed.
  5. Pack the right equipment and a tire:- Ensure you have the appropriate trekking gear and clothing for the season and altitude. Essential items include sturdy trekking boots, warm layers, waterproof clothing, and safety gear like a first-aid kit, headlamp, and map.
  6. Maintain hydration and a healthy diet:-To assist your body in adapting to the physical demands of the trek and the high altitude, drink enough water, and keep to a balanced diet.
  7. Travel Insurance for EBC trek;- Ensure your travel insurance is comprehensive and covers high-altitude hiking, medical evacuation, and any other potential risks you might experience while on your trek.

Travel insurance for Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek

When going for a trek to the Everest region, you need to take all types of insurance. It would help if you took all the insurance for your safety. It includes medical insurance and accidental insurance. 

For the safety of our guests considering the Everest Base Camp Trek, we strongly advise them to get travel insurance. During Everest Base Camp Trekking, you will be experiencing a remote location. Therefore, we will be forced to deploy an airlift to provide you with immediate medical care in an accident or any unforeseen medical emergency (which seldom occurs).

Until travel insurance or the Passenger commits to pay the fee to pay the costs, rescue providers, particularly emergency evacuation service providers, do not get ready. As a result, travel insurance is essential when walking to Everest's base camp.

Alternative Trips

When it comes to Everest trails, the Everest base camp route attracts the largest number of adventurers worldwide. However, the unexpected busyness and large crowds might catch you off guard, especially if it's your first time. The good news is that alternative routes to reach Everest base camp offer a unique experience beyond the standard trekking route. The only trade-off is adding 4-6 extra trekking days to your itinerary, but the rewards will be well worth it. By choosing these routes, you can avoid about 70% of the crowd while embracing a more challenging and adventurous journey than the traditional Everest Base Camp trail.

A short trip by Heli Return

One of the best alternative trips to add is a helicopter return. On this route, you will trek to Everest Base Camp and immediately take a helicopter back from Kala Patthar or Gorakshep. In other words, you will only need to walk 65 of the 130 kilometers; the helicopter flight will cover the remainder. Indeed, in a journey like EBC, the advent of the helicopter results in some important saves. Likewise, saves your energy since it cuts down on the amount of time that would have been required for the return journey. The walk, one of the difficult hikes, also gets simpler. Adopting this route will reduce the expedition's difficulties by a dozen. And the plan stands out from other itineraries in all thanks to its luxurious way of returning from Everest base camp. 

The fact that you experience everything about the Everest Base Camp Trek and helicopter return is its finest feature. Along with trekking through and exploring the Everest Region, you will also get a bird's eye perspective. You will experience flying over and traveling through traditional communities like Tengboche, Namche Bazaar, and Phakding.

Nothing will be overlooked on this journey, and you will also see the Sagarmatha National Park's dense greenery. In simple words, you will experience everything that Everest has to offer.

Extend trip to Gokyo Valley

The Gokyo Trail connecting Everest Base Camp and Everest is what we advise next for alternative tours. We break apart from the rest of the group after visiting Everest Base Camp. You will go across Cho-la Pass before reaching Gokyo Valley. This journey illustrates the region around Mount Everest's captivating beauty. 

An excellent option for the well-known Everest Base Camp trek is the area of the Gokyo Lakes at the head of the Dudh Kosi Valley. It's a calmer trip through the traditional Sherpa territory that provides plenty of time for acclimatization and the opportunity to enjoy mountain vistas from our permanent, private campsites. 

Our climb of Gokyo Ri is the trek's high point. At a height of almost 5000 meters, the summit offers breathtaking views of Everest and Tibet's 8000-meter peaks, Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho Oyu. With Everest's massive bulk dominating the horizon, many hikers will contend that this is one of the best Himalayan vistas.

Domestic Flight Delay or Cancellations

Lukla flight delays and cancellations are common throughout the year, with a higher likelihood during the monsoon season from late May to early September. If your flight is delayed, we will promptly reschedule you on the next available flight or, in our case, a helicopter ride. The timing of such delays is highly unpredictable due to the rapidly changing conditions.

It could be either shortly after your original departure or a few days later. Embrace it as a part of your journey to the Everest region, though it might be frustrating. We strongly recommend extending your trip by at least one or two days to allow for some flexibility in case of delays. Helicopters offer a more flexible approach to reaching Lukla, often being able to fly in conditions that would restrict small planes from taking off. 

Helicopter Rescue

In Nepal, Helicopter Rescue is a crucial and frequent lifesaving service used to rescue people trapped in remote or mountainous places who need immediate medical treatment or evacuation. 

Altitude sickness may become a concern in the Himalayas while hiking and climbing and could endanger the lives of trekkers and climbers. Emergency rescue from a remote area of the Himalayas is required in cases of altitude sickness and other emergencies to preserve lives. We provide rescue and emergency medical evacuation services if needed during your trek. 

In remote areas of Nepal, medical evacuation is the best and fastest way to rescue and provide medical attention. The most dependable, efficient, and expedient helicopter rescue service is offered by our experienced and qualified pilot and his specialized rescue crew.

Because of the high height, trekkers hiking or ascending mountains and passes may get altitude sickness. Those with altitude sickness should get better as quickly as possible by being transported to a lower elevation and hospitalized for additional treatment. The most important duty in lifesaving is a helicopter rescue operation. Sometimes during the rescue, the location is not discovered. So, we have extremely effective helicopters, highly experienced pilots, and rescue people for search and rescue operations in the Himalayas.

FAQs

  • Q1. May we see the Everest view from Kala Patthar? 

    From Kala Patthar, you will observe amazing sunrise with a 360-degree view of Mt. Everest and numerous other Himalayan mountains like Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Nuptse, and Mt. Makalu, Mt. Pumori, Mt. Cho Oyu, Mt. Ama Dablam, Mt. Thamserku, etc. 

  • Yes, you will get drinking water during the trek. Tea house/lodge offers packaged, bubbled, and separated water. Before drinking the water, you can use iodine or another refining device for added safety. You can also get water from streams and waterfalls; however, filter it before drinking.
     

  • Yes, you can do trekking even if this is your first time. However, make sure to warm up your body and muscles before the commencement of the trek. Join the gym, go on short hikes, swim, do aerobics, and jog to increase stamina and muscle power. 

  • The main issue that you can get while trekking is altitude sickness. You can avoid this by carrying medicine like Diamox. Also, drink plenty of water and keep yourself hydrated. If the symptoms worsen, drop down to low elevation and rest for a few days before moving ahead. Don't worry too much because the guide and porters you will be trekking with are trained to handle this kind of n, so make sure to listen to their advice.

  • Acute Mountain Sickness or altitude sickness is the most common issue travelers can face during EBC Luxury Trek. Any high-altitude activity can cause this problem. The sudden altitude change and low oxygen level is the main reason behind AMS. Altitude sickness can occur to anyone respective of their age and health. Therefore, adjusting your body temperature with the current altitude is important before gaining more. If you see AMS symptoms, then drop down a few meters and spend a night or two before moving ahead. Also, keep yourself hydrated during the trek. This lowers the chances of AMS.

  • Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek begins with a scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. You will start trekking towards Khumbu valley, following the Dudh Koshi and Imja Tse streams. The trail goes through Sagarmatha National Park and leads you to Namche Bazar. You will then ascend to Tengboche and then to Dingboche. 

    Further, you will reach Lobuche village by trekking through small towns, crossing streams, and passing by dense forests. Lobuche onwards, the trail gets more steep, icy, and rocky. You will reach Gorak Shep, said to be the first base camp of Everest, and move towards Everest Base Camp. The next day, you will hike to Kala Patthar to witness striking views of the Himalayas.

  • The condition of the EBC Luxury Trekking trail is fine. There will be a few parts that will include a steep and rugged path. Likewise, the route from Lobuche to Everest Base Camp can change due to the melted ice sheet. 

  • Everest Base Camp rises 5,364 meters/17,600 feet above sea level. Generally, trekkers begin their adventurous journey with a thrilling flight from Kathmandu to Lukla that will take 2,845 meters/9,383 feet. Within the span of a few days, you will gain around 2,500 meters/8,000 feet. Moreover, trekkers also ascend to Kala Patthar Viewpoint at 5,659 meters/18,514 feet to see stunning sunrise or sunset.

  • We have 3-star Accommodation for five nights during an Everest base camp trek(yeti home) chain, and we will use the best in town for another six days.

    Everest Base Camp Luxury trekking trail is Nepal's most popular and advanced trail. Advance in terms of the facilities that no other trails of Nepal have got like a wide range of menus, spacious rooms, electricity, private washrooms, high-quality brews & bakeries, etc. Even though they are common in cities, getting this facility here is a privilege. 

    Within years, many tea houses have opened in this region to carter you a good variety of food, including breakfast (toast, potatoes, eggs, espresso, tea), momo (dumplings), noodles, stew, curries, rice, etc. Dal Bhaat is the staple food for Nepalis throughout the country, and surprisingly this dish is highly rich in carbs and fills you up during the trek. Along with all these, you will also get many Tibetan dishes like thukpa and laughing.

  • No, there is no age limit for Everest Base Camp Luxury Trekking. Anyone can do it. However, this trek does require good health and muscular physical fitness. Also, we advise you to meet your doctor and know all the issues you can come across during high elevation trekking.

  • Unleashing the Luxe Side of Trekking

    I trekked on an incredible journey with my father to the luxurious Everest Base Camp trek during the early days of Autumn Mountain Rock Treks. Deepak, our reliable contact, offered unwavering assistance before and throughout our stay in Nepal. He promptly addressed our emails and catered to our needs in Kathmandu. The hotel he arranged for us was both comfortable and immaculate. Every aspect of our trek was delightful, from our knowledgeable English-speaking guide to the friendly Sherpa people. We formed a remarkable team by the trip's end. The tea houses provided pleasant accommodations, and the food was delectable.
