Everest View Luxury Trek

If you are short on time this is a great alternative to our 14 day luxury excursion to Everest Basecamp. You'll arrive in Kathmandu and relax with 5-star amenities in one of the most historic hotels in the city. The trek starts the following morning with a 35 min flight from Kathmandu to the air strip at Lukla. Throughout the trek you'll enjoy lodging in some of the world's finest high altitude hotels, complete with spa and breathtaking views of the surrounding peaks. Enjoy five days of trekking in the Khumbu with fabulous views of Everest, Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Kongde Ri and Kusum Kanguru. On the fourth day we take a day hike to Everest View Hotel for a fantastic panorama that includes Everest and Ama Dablam. On the last day of trekking we head back to Lukla from Namche for a flight the following morning back to Kathmandu. This is a fantastic trek anyway you look at it and will certainly leave you wanting to come back to Nepal for more.

Travel Insurance

Proof of travel insurance is mandatory before starting the trek. Standard policies often only cover medical evacuation to 4000m so make sure the policy you get covers up to 6000m. We usually suggest World Nomads which costs around $125. You only need to be covered on the policy for the days you will actually be trekking.

Flight Delays in Lukla/Kathmandu

The flight between Kathmandu and Lukla where the trek starts is generally reliable but if the weather is bad all flights will be canceled for the day. In the event the flight is cancelled we will attempt to get you on a chartered helicopter but you are responsible for the extra costs in this event which can range from $150 to $500 or more depending on the number of people on the flight.

We schedule one extra day into the trek already as a buffer day in case of delays but as flights can at times be delayed for several days we suggest you add a couple of extra days at the end of your trip in case of any delays. Extra days should always be scheduled at the end of the trip and not the start.
