What makes our luxury Everest base camp trek different?

‘’Luxury must be comfortable. Otherwise it is not luxury’’ Our Luxury Everest Trek has been tailored keeping this quote in mind. Service is of paramount and we have crafted a well devised itinerary including two acclimatization days and overnight at Thugla [4,650m15,250ft] instead of going straight to Lobuche [4,910m/16,109ft] from Dingboche [4,412m/14,475ft]. This trip is suitable for people with no previous experience of trekking at high altitude. Safety is of a highest importance when traveling with Highland Expeditions and on this trip you will have higher staff ratio unlike other standard itineraries. We will provide 1 assistant guide to every 3 participants.

Climate

The best seasons to trek to the Everest region are Autumn (from mid-September till end of November) and Spring (beginning of March until mid-May). Temperatures will drop considerably as you ascend higher every day. The nights are cold (between -10C to 5C) and the days are sunny and hot (between 10C to 20C).  Mornings are usually clear, with clouds building up in the afternoon and disappearing at night.

TRIP GRADE – Challenging

Longer treks reaching up to an elevation of 5500m where some of the famous mountaineering Base Camps are located and you need to sleep at an elevation of 5000m for few days. Physically strenuous, involving daily trekking of approximately   6 – 8 hours.   No previous trekking experience is required but you should be moderately fit and must enjoy walking and adaptable to high altitude conditions.

A Typical Day

Daily wake up calls will be between 6.00 am to 7.00 am while on trek. You will be given a small basin of hot water to wash up.  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 lunch time 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.

Meals

Meals are included in our package and are served in Lodges located along the trail. You can find a wide variety of Nepali and Western food as well as drinks (coffee, tea, milk, soft drinks, and beer).

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 group varies, minimum no of persons required to operate a trip is 4 the maximum is 12 people.
