Everest comfort lodge trek is a comfortable and moderate grade trek in the shadow of Everest with relative comfort. Every trekking enthusiast must have dreamt of witnessing the mighty Everest with their own eyes. However, to witness this beauty, one must walk through high hills and rough terrain, which is not an easy task. It requires good physical fitness, enough time, and strong determination. Therefore, we present you the Everest Comfort Lodge Trek, a specially designed itinerary that allows to you confront Everest without needing to break a sweat and all the while experiencing luxury service.  

Everest Comfort Lodge Trek is an eleven-days fully guided trek with luxurious accommodation that surpasses anything. In Kathmandu, your accommodation will be at Kathmandu Marriott Hotel and on the trek, you stay in luxury lodges offering king-size bed or twin-bedded accommodation, electric mat & blanket, En-suite bathroom and modern style room. 

Everest Comfort Lodge Trek takes you through the forested hills of Sagarmatha National Park and attractive Sherpa villages of the Everest (Khumbu) region. Enjoy the magnificent views of Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Amadablam, and many other mountain peaks in the Everest region. 

Itinerary Overview: 

You will be picked up from the airport as per your flight time and transferred to the hotel. The next day there will be a sightseeing tour of Kathmandu’s highlights and at evening a trek briefing will be held discussing all the important aspects of the trek. 

The trek begins early morning with a four-hour drive from Kathmandu to Ramechhap, followed by a short flight to Lukla and 3 hrs trek to Phakding. The next day, you walk through easy trails of the Dudhkoshi valley and a final steep climb of approx. 4000m to reach Namche Bazar, the gateway to the Everest region. You will spend two nights in Namche Bazar. You can explore the beauty of Namche and its surrounding areas. We will visit the Everest view hotel on our exploration day to contemplate the panoramic views of Everest.

You will then trek to Thame, a traditional village to peek in the culture and lifestyle of the Sherpa people. Thame village is also home to some of the famous Nepalese mountaineers. From Thame, we trek to Kongde to relish the magical view of Everest and other mountain peaks. The maximum elevation you will gain on this trek is 4,250m/13,944ft at Kongde. 

The trail length and walking hours per day are short as compared to other regular treks in the Everest region.

And as your plane hits the tarmac, our waiting support team will meet and greet you at the airport and escort you to your hotel. Upon completing the visa formalities and collecting your luggage in the airport, kindly proceed to the exit of the arrival hall. Your trip leader will await you just outside the arrival hall and will escort you to your hotel in Kathmandu. Please look out for a placard of Highland Expeditions.

Essential Information

How difficult is Everest comfort lodge trek?

Our Everest comfort lodge trek is considered moderate to slightly challenging. Trails generally go above 4000 meters and on a daily basis, you can expect to be walking for about 5 – 7 hours. Perfect setting of introduction to challenging high altitude trekking in Nepal. Activity level/physical rating is slightly harder than leisure and involves occasional difficult days. Expect ups and downs as well for there will be hills to climb as well and the well-known ‘Nepali flat’ – a little bit up and a little bit down.

Do I need previous experience to take part?

No previous experience of trekking is required but you should be moderately fit and must enjoy walking and adaptable to high altitude conditions. Having a previous experience is definitely beneficial but it is not must to participate for this trip. All travellers need to be in good physical health in order to participate fully on this trip. We strongly advise you to prepare yourself for the trip at least 3 months prior to your trip date by doing regular exercises, going on hiking, running or gym. The fitter you are, the more enjoyable you will find the experience of trekking. All our trip itinerary has been devised keeping every aspect in mind and allows ample time for acclimatization

When is the best season?

The best seasons to trek to the Everest region are Autumn (latter half of September till December), Spring (latter half of March until mid-May). On both seasons, Mornings are usually clear, with clouds building up in the afternoon and disappearing at night. The given temperature may raise or lower with the change in weather factors: (Sunny, Snow, Rain etc.)

Autumn/Fall:
Slightly colder than Spring but presents clear views of the mountains. The mornings are clear providing best mountain views, days are warmer and night time will get cold and frosty. The temperature during Autumn varies from lowest -10 degree Celsius at Gorekshep to warmest 25 degree Celsius at Lukla/Phakding.

Spring:
Another weather window for trekking in Nepal comes during the month of the latter March to May. The temperature will be relatively warmer during this period of time but still, nights will be cold and frosty at a higher elevation. Temperatures will drop considerably as you ascend higher every day. During the spring season, the base camp will be full of tents as Apr-May are preferred time to climb Mt. Everest.

Winter:
Everest base camp heli trek can be done during the winter season (Dec to Feb). Weather will still remain clear offering views of mountains, trails will be less busy, a perfect time for photographers with fresh snow on the hills but the only significant downside is the cold temperature. Daytime temperatures can range between 5 - 9 ºC and evenings can drop to sub-zero temperatures.

Monsoon/Summer:
Trekking during the monsoon/summer season has its own benefits (Less crowd, greenery and lush vegetation etc) but for high altitude trek like Everest base camp, we do not recommend this season. Due to the frequent rainfall, it makes the walk uncomfortable. The clouds develop most of the time blocking your views and the main problem will be the flight cancellation at these time of year.

Are meals included on the trek?

All meals are included during the trek from Day 03 to Day 09. We will provide three meals a day (B, L, D) during the trek. The menus in the teahouses are varied, ranging from traditional Nepalese dhal bhat, Momo (Dumpling) to pizza and apple pie. Despite the fact that meat is available in the teahouses, we prompt against eating it on the trek. The meat has frequently been conveyed in the warmth from lower elevations for a few days before arriving at the teahouses and can cause stomach upsets or disease. During the trek, Breakfast and Dinner will be served at the teahouse/lodge where you stay and Lunch will be along the way.

If you have any special dietary requirements please let us know in advance and we will be sure to pass your message to your guide. For a gluten-free diet, we highly recommend you to bring extra foods especially for breakfast as your options for the breakfast will be limited. Meals worth USD 400-450 are included on this trip. In Kathmandu, only breakfast will be provided to give you the maximum flexibility in deciding where what and with whom to eat for lunch and dinner.

What are the accommodation arrangements?

5-star Hotel: 4 Nights, Luxury Lodges: 6 Nights 

Kathmandu: 
In Kathmandu, we stay at Hotel Marriott or similar category. Located in the vibrant city centre, near shopping, dining and attractions, Marriott Kathmandu Hotel offers modern design, 5-star service and deluxe amenities. Breakfast will be provided in the hotel and your accommodation will be on twin sharing basis and if you would like to have a single room, upon request you are required to pay single supplement price as stated in the trip costing.
Regardless of whether you're coming back from the mountains or touching base from the airport, Marriott Kathmandu offers unrivalled experience with its luxurious facilities. 

On Trek:
Our luxury and comfort treks are accommodated in the Yeti Mountain Homes. You will spend all nights on the trek at comfortable and luxury lodges that surpasses anything. These luxurious hotels provide indulgent comfort, high-quality cuisine and a very warm Sherpa hospitality to weary trekkers.

Single supplement: 
Single supplement will be charged if someone wishes to have their own room in Kathmandu and on the trek. Especially when travelling in a group, we will always pair you with someone of the same sex and similar age to share the room with. If in case of a single by default, then clients don’t have to pay for the single supplement. 

Guide and staff

We possess a deep passion for alpine adventure & the outdoors, and with the small professional group we have on board, we’ve notched up experience that spans almost 3 decades on some of the most isolated trails and highest peaks. We take great pride in calling ourselves a ‘high-altitude adventure specialist’ and all this is due to our diverse and qualified team of guides. Most of our guides were born in these parts & have relatives living in other parts of the regions where they were born in.

Your trip will be led by a qualified guide with 1 porter to every 2 participants and 1 assistant guide to every 3 participants. 

Typical day on trek

Daily wake up calls will be between 6.00 am to 7.00 am while on the trek. The wake-up time and breakfast time will be decided a night before during the briefing time. The time table for each day will entirely depend on your walking duration for that particular day.

After a hearty breakfast, we set off on the day's walk. Before breakfast, you are required to pack your duffel bag as it will be loaded by the porter while you are having your breakfast. After 3-4 hours of walk, we stop for lunch mid-day.  The afternoon's walk is generally shorter and we usually arrive at our destination in time for afternoon tea. The rest of the afternoon can be spent exploring the village, to wash your clothes or simply relaxing with a good book. On some days, we will arrive at our destination by lunchtime and the entire afternoon will be free. After dinner, the evening will often be spent playing cards and reliving the day's adventures, before heading off to bed for a well-earned sleep.

what is the group size?

Our emphasis is always on maintaining the small group so that it will be easy to coordinate and cooperate with each other. Our group size is small and we only take up to 12 pax in one group. If you opt to join our ‘fixed departure trip’, you are likely to be joining people from different countries of any age group except minors. The size of the group varies, minimum no of persons required to operate the trip is 2 and the maximum is 12 people.

Will I need travel insurance?

It’s mandatory and highly recommended to get travel insurance before embarking on any adventurous trips in Nepal. We advise all our clients to get travel insurance that covers up emergency helicopter evacuation that may be needed in case of the occurrence of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) or any other reasons in high altitudes where there are no other means of transportation available. Medical expenses, Baggage lost, Delays and Cancellation, Death & Repatriation are also other important factors to include when purchasing your Insurance. It is advisable to review carefully the insurance and its coverages before making the final decision.
