We believe that the accommodation is one of the major factor that enhances your overall travel experience. We also believe that a person who is quite far away from home, if gets to enjoy the similar comfortably as home, then he is bound to attach to the place. In most location during Everest Base Camp Trek, we will stay in comfortable hotels offering the best service and we will not restrict on your menu like other trekking packages.
The comfortable hotels are built on best location and everything you get here is perfect. Beds are comfortable and the quality of food, sheet, towels, bathroom etc. is great. You truly feel like the king of mountain.
Starting from Lukla (2,830m), the Everest Base Camp Trek route covers roughly 130km (two way). Everest Base Camp sits at an elevation of 5,364m and the starting point at Lukla is already enough for mountain sickness.
To avoid altitude sickness, slower pace and proper acclimatization are the must. 16 days Luxury lodge Everest Base Camp Trek limits daily altitude gain and ensure two nights acclimatization – one at Namche Bazaar and another at Dingboche. We believe that it will enhance your comfort ability.
