The 17-day Everest Base Camp trek itinerary includes 13 days of trekking and 4 days in Kathmandu. After a cultural tour of Kathmandu, travelers will fly to Lukla and gaze upon the eternal snows of the Himalaya. The trek passes through the picturesque Sherpa village of Namche Bazaar and then continues through an enchanting landscape on the journey to Everest Base Camp. There will be plenty of time to enjoy the culture of the Sherpas and visit ancient monasteries as travelers admire the landscape and mountains. After the trek travelers will have time to discover Kathmandu and Nepalese culture.
All the lodges on the trek are the nicest available – 6 nights in Everest Summit Lodges and 6 nights in local lodges. On the luxury EBC trek, the lower altitude accommodations are mid-range to luxury, while up at high altitude, the accommodations are considered “standard” for high altitude regions in Nepal but Westerners would consider them closer to “budget.” The lodges in Dingboche and Pheriche have private toilet facilities but that cannot always be guaranteed since booking in advance does not work well here in this remote area. Lobuche and Gorak Shep lodges have shared (Western) toilet facilities only
For the ultimate in luxury, stay at the Dwarika’s Hotel or Hyatt in Kathmandu. For “luxury within reach,” you can stay at the 3-star Hotel Tibet in Kathmandu.
