Everest Comfort Lodge Trek - 9 Days

A comfortable and moderate trek in the shadow of Mount Everest with a Kathmandu Hyatt Hotel and Luxury Lodge and a helicopter flight from Mount Everest, Lhotse, and Kongde to Lukla.

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 heels 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 comfort trip that allows you to confront Everest without needing to break a sweat and all the while experience luxury service.

Everest Comfort Lodge Trek is a fully guided trek with luxurious accommodation that surpasses anything. In Kathmandu, your accommodation will be at Kathmandu Hyatt Hotel, and on the trek, you stay in luxury lodges offering king-size bed or twin-bedded accommodation, electric mat & blanket, an En-suite bathroom, and modern style room. Enjoy breakfast at one of the world’s highest resorts witnessing the panoramic Himalayan views and lastly, fly to Lukla on a privately chartered helicopter from Kongde.

Everest Comfort Lodge Trek takes you through the forested hills of Sagarmatha National Park and the 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. The views on this trip are unlike anything you will see on the standard Everest base camp trek route.

You will be picked up from the airport as per your flight time and transferred to the hotel. Later that day, there will be a trip briefing and final orientation discussing all the important aspects of the trek.
The trek begins early in the morning with a short 35 mins flight to Lukla. Upon arrival at Lukla, your trekking begins. The first day will be a leisurely 3/4 hrs trek to Phakding. The next day, you walk through easy trails of the Dudh Kosi valley and a final steep climb 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 into 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), at Kongde.
Your accommodation at Kongde will be at the Yeti Mountain Home, which is listed as one of the world’s highest resorts. The panoramic view from here will surpass your imagination.

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 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. It is advisable to review carefully the insurance and its coverages before making the final decision. Carry proof of your insurance with you on the holiday and leave a copy next to your kin. You must ensure that your insurance provides an adequate level of protection and covers you for the activities involved.

Equipment Checklist

Needless to say that kitting and stuffing yourself out for a trek is almost a herculean task that keeps you mulling and often gets you overwhelmed. But at the mercy of the renting outlets sprouting in every visible corner in Kathmandu, preparing for trekking in Nepal these days is almost tantamount to equipping yourself for a weekend backpacking trip. Most of the heavy and expensive items are easily available for rent, so you don’t actually have to travel to Nepal with a cartload of gear. We have endeavored to formulate a categorical checklist that gives you a tentative idea regarding the gears and accessories mandatory for you during the trek. The list could vary depending upon the kind of trek you pursue, the terrain, weather conditions, and time of the year. For instance, you don’t need the camp trek equipment when you are on a tea-house trek. This listing below simply serves as a guideline and you can always have your own checklist.
