We will bring you to a luxurious hotel, where you will be served a refreshing drink and introduced to your trekking guide. During this time, we will also provide a briefing on your upcoming trip. Additionally, if you need any trekking gear, we are happy to assist you in collecting it. Typically, we provide sleeping bags and down jackets for trekking.

In most cases, we confirm your trip once you have paid a deposit. We suggest paying 20 to 30% of the package cost through our online payment gateway for trip confirmation. While paying the deposit online, our bank charges a 3.5% fee. If you prefer to pay the remaining balance in cash upon arrival, we ask that you settle this at the hotel or at office.

On morning, your guide will escort you to the airport and will take a scenic 45 to 60-minute helicopter ride to Lukla. Upon arrival in Lukla, you will meet our porter and have time for breakfast and preparations before embarking on the trek to Phakding. At the Pasang Lhamu municipality check post in Lukla, we will obtain all trek permits (Trekkers Card, Khumbu Municipality Permit, and Sagarmatha National Park) for the Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek.

The trek to Phakding is not particularly steep, and the trail leads down to Chaurikharka, a charming Sherpa village. From there, you will follow the old trekking trail to Thadokoshi village, crossing a few suspension bridges along the way. While there will be some short uphill and downhill sections, most of the trail remains at a similar altitude. You will see some hydro project pipelines on the way that provide electricity to the local communities, which are largely involved in tourism.

After approximately four hours of walking along the Dudhkoshi riverside, you will arrive at Phakding village, located at an altitude of 2,660m. This tourist-oriented village has about 25 lodges, guesthouses, hotels, and restaurants, and most trekkers stop here for the first night. However, our accommodation at Yati Mountain Home is a luxurious option that sets us apart from the others. This hotel provides a comfortable and enjoyable experience that complements the first day of the Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek.

4 hours
Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After a delightful night in Phakding, the second day of the Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek begins with a satisfying breakfast. Today’s destination is the famous Namche Bazaar, situated at an altitude of 3,440m and known as the gateway to Mount Everest.

You will cross the suspension bridge in Phakding, which leads to the other side of the Dudhkoshi River, and follow this beautiful river throughout the Everest trekking. Before reaching Namche Bazaar, you will cross at least five suspension bridges and pass through several villages as Tok Tok, Monjo, and Jorsalle, making for a fantastic afternoon walk. At Monjo, there is a Sagarmatha National Park check post where we need to stop for a quick security and permit check. You will stop for lunch at Jorsalle after crossing the river.

After lunch, you will cross the river once again and then face a steep uphill climb. The famous Hillary Bridge awaits after walking for about an hour, which can be a bit intimidating and offers a chilling wind if the weather is nice. After crossing the bridge, you will trek uphill for two hours to reach Namche Bazaar. You will stay overnight at the same Yati Mountain Home.

You can enjoy a hot drink while admiring the view of Mount Everest from there. After a short tea break hike to Khumjung village for a quick tour.

The initial part of the trail offers a smooth and pleasant walk with a stunning view of Mount Everest. You’ll trek on a wide and clean path at a similar elevation and witness panoramic views of Lukla valley in the south and a beautiful view in the north-east. After two hours of a lovely walk, you’ll reach Lausasa, where two different trekking routes diverge. The north uphill trail goes towards Gokyo lake valley, while the east downhill route leads to Tyangboche.

You’ll then hike for around an hour downhill to Phungi Thanga, where you’ll stop for lunch and cross another suspension bridge. After lunch, you’ll need to climb uphill for approximately two hours until you reach Tyangboche, a significant place in the Khumbu region. It’s home to the oldest monastery in the region and the center of religious faith for the Buddhist Sherpa people.

Monks typically reside in the monastery and perform puja (worship) every morning and afternoon. You can visit the monastery and receive a blessing from the monk. Then, you’ll walk for another half an hour downhill to Deboche.

Tyangboche only has five lodges, so it can get crowded during high season. If you walk further down for half an hour, Deboche offers comfortable accommodation. Sherpa Culture Home is an luxury option available so we will stop at this hotel for an overnight stay.

6 hours
Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Your morning will begin with a delicious breakfast at Deboche, after which you’ll be ready to start your hike. The first part of the trail is a beautiful and flat path through a rhododendron forest, until you reach the Dudhkoshi river. From there, you’ll need to trek uphill until you reach Pangboche village, which is also a famous Sherpa village that has produced many Sherpa climbers for mountaineering. The tree line almost ends here, but you’ll still see a forest on the other side of the mountain facing north.

After Pangboche, you’ll have another flat path for about half an hour, followed by a short uphill trek to Somare, where you’ll take a lunch break for about an hour. Then, you’ll continue on a flat path to Dingboche, although the elevation will continue to increase. It takes about two and a half hours to reach Dingboche from the lunch spot. Dingboche, located at 4,450m, is a relatively large village in this area, and you’ll be spending two nights here.

5 hours
Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Today is the second acclimatization day on the Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek.

On this day, you will hike to Nangkartshang Peak at 5,121m which can be very helpful for your body to adjust with the higher altitude. Although it is a steep uphill climb from Dingboche, it takes around 2 hours and 30 minutes to reach the peak. The view from the peak includes beautiful views of Mount Makalu at 8,463m, as well as Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Island Peak, Kangtega, Thamserku, Tawache, Cholatse, Nuptse, and many other big mountains.

After descending back to Dingboche before lunch, it is important to rest for the remainder of the day to help with acclimatization. Even if you are being very careful, altitude problems can still occur at this elevation, so it is important to inform your guide or friend if you experience any issues. Normally, two overnight stays in this place should be sufficient to adjust to the altitude.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After spending two nights in Dingboche, you will trek to Lobuche today. The initial part of the trail is a gentle uphill for about 20 minutes, followed by a smooth and gradual horizontal path leading to Thukla, which takes two to three hours. Before reaching Thukla, you will need to cross a small river that flows from the Khumbu glacier.

Upon reaching Thukla at an altitude of 4,600m, also known as Dukla, you will stop for lunch. This place has only two lodges and one tea shop, but it gets crowded during the high season as most trekkers stop here for lunch.

After lunch, you will start a steep uphill climb, which is one of the famous uphills on the Everest base camp trek. Although not very long, trekking here in the afternoon can be challenging and interesting. After about an hour of climbing, you will reach the top of the mountain, where you will see a popular mountaineer’s memorial. From here, it will take you another one and a half hours to reach Lobuche. Overnight stay.

Note: The meals in Lobuche and Gorakshep are not very tasty, and many trekkers lose their appetite due to the altitude as well. Therefore, it is advisable to choose a specific item and the right portion. Bringing food to this place is a significant challenge. Our team always carries an oximeter during trekking, which measures the proportion of oxygenated hemoglobin in the blood to monitor how the body is reacting to the altitude. Rest assured.

5 hours
Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Today is the big day because you’ll be reaching Everest Base Camp, so you’ll need to wake up early and have a warm breakfast before setting off around 6 am. The first hour of walking is relatively easy, despite being at a high altitude, with a gradual horizontal path. After about an hour, you’ll need to climb a steep uphill for 20 minutes before mostly walking on a path formed by melting glaciers. From here it will take approximately two hours to reach Gorakshep, where you can take a break and have some food (lunch).

After your rest, you’ll continue your journey to Everest Base Camp, which is only an hour and a half away from Gorakshep. If you’re feeling tired, take your time and go slowly. The trail to base camp is moderate and also formed by melting glaciers, which makes it unstable. Everest Base Camp is located just before the Khumbu icefall area, where all expeditions set up their tents. However, due to the rapid melting of glaciers caused by global warming, the area is unstable.

When you finally reach Everest Base Camp, a big congratulations! It’s not just any base camp, but the highest base camp in the world, situated over 5,364m above sea level. It’s a dream destination for adventure enthusiasts, nature lovers, and mountain enthusiasts alike. Take some pictures and enjoy the moment.

After returning, a helicopter ride is arranged back to Lukla, so be sure to thank our porters before you leave. They’re essential parts of the success of your trip.

The helicopter flight to Lukla takes only 15 to 20 minutes. While the package is designed with a one-way helicopter ride and a one-way domestic air ticket, you have the option to use the helicopter ride both ways as well with an additional cost.

During peak season Lukla flights are operated from Ramechhap. Therefore, we will most likely fly to Ramechhap from Lukla, which takes only 20 minutes. From Ramechhap, we will provide you with our private vehicle for the 5-hour drive to Kathmandu and transfer to the hotel.

As a token of appreciation for your journey with us, we are delighted to offer you a farewell dinner at a reputable Nepali restaurant in the evening. We value your feedback, both positive and negative, as it helps us to improve our service and strive towards greater dedication.
