Luxury Everest base camp trek route

A spectacular 45-minute flight from Kathmandu to Lukla serves as the start of your adventure (2,840m). We set out on our hike to Phakding from Lukla. After a brief hike, you can spend the remainder of the day discovering Phakding, especially its monasteries.

You trek from Phakding to Namche Bazaar on the second day (3,440m). As you enter Sagarmatha National Park, you will be required to traverse a number of precariously perched suspension bridges, including the Hillary Suspension Bridge. We will travel into the deep woodland after registering our permits at the national park checkpoint. You'll get your first glimpse of Mount Everest from this forest. But you'll keep going till you get to Namche Bazaar on your trek.

After spending a day at Namche Bazaar getting acclimated, we will walk to Khunde and Khumjung and visit the Sagarmatha National Park Visitor Center. You can climb to the grounds of the Everest Hotel to take in additional Everest vistas. It will take you about five hours to trek to Thame (3820 m), where you may see some stunning mountain vistas. A different choice is to climb to Khumjung village (3780m), where you may see how the Sherpas live. Visit the Everest View Hotel (3880m) for excellent views of the Everest landscape as a final, even simpler option. 

We travel to Tengboche after taking a day of rest in Namche, where we take in the views of Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, and Ama Dablam. The path travels through a number of woodlands teeming with pheasants, Himalayan tahr, and musk deer. The largest monastery in the Khumbu region, Tengboche Monastery, is the first place we stop along the journey.
We leave Tengboche the following morning and go to Dingboche (4,360m). By following the Lobuche River, the trek leads past a number of tiny settlements and into the woods as you enter Imja Valley. An almost kilometre-long stone wall, constructed to shield crops from chilly winds and animals, surrounds Dingboche.

As you have already climbed to a significant altitude, it is now time to acclimatize for a day at Dingboche. You will be able to enjoy the breathtaking views of Makalu, Cho Oyu, and Lhotse.

The route takes us across multiple glacier moraines as we head into Lobuche. In addition, you will see a memorial, a few lodge clusters, and magnificent snow-capped peaks.

The final settlement in the area, the seasonal village of Gorakh Shep, is reached today after a challenging but rewarding hike. Before setting out again for the two to three-hour climb to Kala Pattar, have lunch and take a break with Gorakh Shep. This fantastic vantage point will provide breathtaking views of the mountains, including the shining Everest (8848m), Lhotse (8516m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Nuptse (7861m), Changtse (7550m), and Pumori (7145m). Spend some time and take some shots at this spot, renowned for being a photographer's paradise.

After overnighting in Gorakshep early in the morning, we will head towards the Khumbu glaciers. An adorable view of the Khumbu glacier is one of the adorable views of this trek. Although the trail will be difficult to travel on, it will be worthwhile. Once you reach the base camp, take some time to explore, take in the breathtaking scenery, and take pictures. You will then be transported all the way to Kathmandu by helicopter. You will be driven to your accommodation in Kathmandu by a private vehicle.

Best Season for Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek

We recommend performing the Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek during the spring (March to May) or autumn (September to November) seasons. During these periods, the weather remains stable and the mountain views are good leading to the best experience. In monsoon, the weather can be unpredictable while in winter, heavy snowfall and harsh temperatures can sometimes make the trek quite difficult.

Spring season ( March-May)

In the area as a whole, springtime is perhaps the busiest season. Early February through late winter may see sporadic snow showers, but other than that, the weather should be mainly stable and dry, making it ideal for trekking and high-altitude climbs. A magnificent and unobstructed panoramic view of the stunning mountains is available in the spring. The trail leads you alongside flowing rivers and is lined with red-blooming rhododendrons in the middle of a lush, green forest. The perfect weather has a cost because this is the busiest time of year for the routes. Since these months see the majority of Everest summit attempts, you'll probably encounter a lot of climbers, summiteers, and the people who support them. At this time of year, the region is also at its coolest, with many of the pathways being bordered by flowering rhododendrons, a clear blue sky, warm sunshine, and colourful prayer flags swaying in the breeze.

Monsoon season ( June- August )

Going to Everest Base Camp during the monsoon season (June to early September) is not advised. In addition to the wet weather, which can cause mudslides on paths, rain clouds can block out views of the mountains. However, it is also warmer at this time of year, and it rains nonstop. Trekking in the monsoon can be OK if you're well prepared for the rain and don't mind getting a little wet along the route, but because the less rain there is, the higher you go in altitude.

You won't be able to take any fantastic images of the stunning mountain peaks; the path conditions are not the safest, and the walk will be unpleasant and wet.  

Autumn season ( September- October) 

Autumn, or the time right after a monsoon, is another excellent time of year to hike to Everest base camp. The fall season typically begins in September and lasts through October. The Everest region experiences a surge of trekkers and tourists making their way to the Everest base camp during this primary season. One of the greatest periods to trek to Everest Base Camp is from mid-September to November.

The days are usually clear during this busy trekking season. Even if colder days (and nights) are to be anticipated, this is a minor price to pay for the breathtaking views and ideal peaks of the area. A benefit of trekking at this time is the opportunity to select one of the area's other, lesser-known routes, which also provide breathtaking vistas but lack the commotion of the more well-known routes. A prime example is the Gokyo Lakes Trek to Everest Base Camp. This time of year is popular among hikers because it offers breathtaking panoramic vistas with less heat haze and cloud cover.

The weather may have an impact on flights from Kathmandu to Lukla, in addition to how you experience the Everest region. The most common way to begin the Everest Base Camp Trek is with a picturesque flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. However, when the weather and visibility are bad in Kathmandu, Lukla, or along the route, flights are frequently cancelled. Although there is a greater chance that flights will proceed as planned outside of the monsoon season, flights can be impacted by rain, fog, or smog at any time of year.

Winter season ( November- January) 

Although it's the off-season, the winter months of November, December, and January aren't always the worst time to travel to EBC. You would need to be well-prepared for freezing situations because temperatures can get very low. The high passes are still closed due to the heavy snowfall this season. However, the skies are frequently exceptionally clear in the winter, providing stunning mountain views. Furthermore, you won't have to compete for a room with other trekkers along the way. Routes would be vacant because it is the off-season, and prices for tours and flights also tend to be a little bit lower right now. However, winter hiking to the Everest Base Camp is the best option for you if you want to avoid the crowds and enjoy a solitary trekking experience.

Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek Difficulty

Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek is a moderately strenuous trek that takes you up to altitudes of 5545m (Kalapattar). While the luxurious lodges and hotels add a lot to the comfort factor, the trail, especially in the latter parts of the trek, is somewhat challenging. Thus, good physical fitness and stamina are recommended. We have a similar package to the Everest base camp short trek for those who are not fond of long itineraries.

Upgrading and Updating your Everest base camp trek packing list can make your journey a whole lot better and easier.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its high mountain peaks, glaciers, deep valleys, and Sherpa communities, the Everest/Sagarmatha National Park contains Mount Everest. You require two permits before starting your trek to Everest base camp one khumbu rural municipality permit and other Sagarmatha national park permit. There is a minor customer perception with these Everest permits, but they are accessible to everyone. TIMS was important back then as well. The old Everest permission system has been replaced by a new one as a result of decentralization. Being one of the most visited destinations worldwide, Nepal had to put in place some safeguards to ensure the preservation of this region. Thus, the region's necessary permits The Everest Base Camp Trek Permits are a crucial safeguard for the region and a viable solution to keeping track of all activities that take place there.

 

Khumbu Rural Municipality Permit 

If you are traveling by plane to Lukla, you must obtain this permit once you have reached Lukla. This permit can be obtained in Monjo at the Sagarmatha National Park Counter by hikers traveling from Jiri or Salleri to the Khumbu region. The local administration in the Khumbu region has just developed a new permit: the Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Entrance Permit. For stays up to four weeks, an Everest entry permit costs NPR 2000; for stays longer than four weeks, it costs NPR 2500 per person. The permit charges are exempt from VAT. Everyone living outside of Nepal, including SAARC citizens and NRNs, must pay the same It is necessary to obtain a permit from the Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality. Additionally, it may only be paid in Nepali rupees.

Sagarmatha national park permit 

 

One of Nepal's well-known UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Sagarmatha National Conservation Area has both cultural and natural value. At the highest elevation on the globe, it is also a heritage site. The region is 1,148 km2, and the Himalayas, which include Mt. Everest, share a northern boundary with Tibet.

The first national park, Sagarmatha National Conservation Area, was established in 1979 AD and is now a World Heritage Site. Sagarmath National Park licenses are issued by the national park committee directly, under the direction of the Nepali government. Unlike the previous permit, this one for the Everest Base Camp Trek has a distinct cost for foreigners, SAARC citizens, and Nepalese. In order to obtain a Khumbu Rural Municipality Permit, foreign nationals, including citizens of SAARC (India, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Maldives, and Pakistan), must pay NPR 2,000 per person for the first four weeks. The price of the permit increases to Rs. 2,500 per person after four weeks.

 

The Department of National Park and Wildlife Conservation (DNPWC) counter is located in Bhrikuti Mandap in Kathmandu, and you can obtain Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permits there or at the entrance gate in Monjo.
