So, this is another exciting day before we start Luxury Everest Base Camp. Before heading to the remote lands of the mountains, we will enjoy beautiful times in the vibrant city of Kathmandu.
After a delicious breakfast in the hotel, a car will be waiting for you at the gate. We visit Kathmandu’s finest architecture in the morning, including Swaymabhunath and Pasupatinath. This architecture represents the fine artwork, history, culture, and religion of Nepal.
In the daytime, we visit Bouddhanath and Kathmandu Durbar Square. It’s a chance to see the home of living goddesses, the only ones in the Hindu religion. All of these four heritages have been listed as UNESCO world heritage sites. After tons of memories, we will drive back to our 5-star hotel in Thamel.

Day 3: Flight to Lukla and walk to Phakding
Altitude: 2860 meters.
Walking time: 3 hours
Stay overnight at Sherpa Shangrila Resort
Today, on the 3rd day of the Everest Luxury Trek, we get into the proximity of the mountains. A car picks you up at the hotel and drives you to the domestic terminal in Kathmandu. Then, we hop onto a mountain flight, taking us right into the mountains.
After about 45-mins, we will be landing at Tenzing-Hillary Airport, one of the most exciting and dangerous airports globally. Then, we will be joined by other members who arrange our bags and permits. From here, our Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek commences.
As soon as we have our lunch at Lukla, we stroll toward the Phakding village. This will only be a few hours of walk, a comfortable starting to the journey. In the night, we stop at another star hotel in Phakding.
Day 4: Trek to Namche Bazaar From Phakding

Walking time- 5 to 6 hours

You will be served a warm breakfast in the morning. Then, you will start walking on the banks of the Dudh Kosi river. You can witness everything from exciting suspension bridges to colourful prayer flags.
After about two hours of walking, we stop for lunch at a luxurious restaurant. Today, we will cross the Hillary suspension bridge and get into the Sagarmatha National Park at Manjo.
Since the Sagarmatha National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, we have to do some paperwork. After that, we get into the rich bio-diversity of the Sagarmatha National Park. It covers 1,148 km2 of area and is rich in flora and fauna.
In the evening, we reach Namche Bazaar. This is the major highlight of the Everest View trek.
Day 5: Acclimatization Day in Namche Bazaar
Altitude: 3900 Mt.
Hiking duration: 3 hours.
Since this is an Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek, your comfort will be our top priority. So, instead of rushing into the mountains, we aim to live in the moment and have a great time.
Today, we stop in the town of Namche, the biggest Sherpa settlement in the Everest region. But we might hike to Everest view hotel, the 5-star hotel at the highest altitude for some great views of the mountains.
There’s a local school, museums, and monasteries where we can visit. Or, we can just stroll around the old streets of Namche, stopping at some bakery for a great cup of coffee. There are some stops for shopping and a bar as well. Namche offers the utmost luxury within the mountains.
Day 6: Walk to Tengboche or Dibuche from Namche Bazzar
Altitude- 3,867 meters

This is another beautiful day on the Everest Luxury Tour. After breakfast, we leave Namche and follow our guide to the Dudh Koshi River. After crossing the river several times and walking through the thick sub-tropical forest for a few hours, we stop for lunch in a local restaurant.
You can have food of your choice (Nepalese or international cuisine) before we head towards Tengboche. You might witness some wild animals wandering around the forest, but there is no danger of an attack.
Day 7: Walk to Dingboche From Tengboche
Altitude- 4,350 meters
Walking time- 4 to 5 hours
We will begin our walk quite early this morning. First, we walk to the Imja River, which leads us to the village of Pangboche. We might stop here as well—Pangboche has some decent tea houses.
However, we try to walk beyond Pangboche to a rather alpine zone of Dingboche. The trail has several ups and downs, making it a challenging walk for an EBC Luxury Lodge trek.
Day 8: Rest Day in Dingboche
As we said, this trek is all about your comfort. And after two days of walking, you definitely deserve a relaxing moment. On this day, many choose to climb Nagarjun (5100 meters) at the top of Chhukung valley.
This 4-5 hours of the walk is worth walking. You get to see the stunning panorama of the mountain peaks. Here, you can witness Lobuche East/ West, Kangtega, Taboche Peak, Thamserku, Ama Dablam, and many other peaks that cannot be seen from the base camp itself.
Nonetheless, you could just stay at the hotel and wander around the village. You can do a campfire in the evening and interact with the locals too.
Day 9: Trek to Lobuche From Dingboche
Altitude- 4,940 meters
Walking time- 5 to 6 hours
Walking away from Dingboche, we first get to Zhongla. Then, we stop at the Trekkers’ Aid Post (run by volunteer doctors) situated on our way to Pheriche. Afterwards, a short walk brings us to Chupki Lhara and then to the Khumbu Glacier moraine.
Here, we can see a few more mountains, including Khumbutse, Lingtren, Mount Nuptse, Pumori, and Mahalangur Himal. Then, we will walk for one another hour to reach Lobuche.
Day 10: Walk to Lobuche to Everest Base Camp to Gorakshep
Altitude- 5,364 meters
Walking time: 7 to 8 hours.
Well, this might be the most exciting day of the Everest Base Camp Luxury Lodge Trek. From Lobuche, we walk along with the view of the magnificent Khumbu Glacier ahead of us. After 2 to 3 hours of walking, we will reach Gorakshep, where we will stop for lunch.
Gorakshep is the last human settlement before EBC. So, we leave our bags here and then freely walk to the Everest Base Camp. As you reach the base camp, you will find yourself in a completely different world, detached from the world’s pain.
The mountain appears so close and perfect that it almost looks like a scene from a movie. After a brief moment in Everest Base Camp, we walk back to Gorakshep for the night’s stay. Getting to stay in such an excellent hotel at such a remote mountain is almost unbelievable.
Day 11: Early morning hike up to Kala Patthar and Trek to Pheriche
Walking time: 8 to 9 hours
Your trek to Kala-Patthar is another of the most challenging parts of the Everest Base Camp trek. We plan to wake up at 4 in the morning and climb the rock of Kala Pathar. The sunrise over the world’s most beautiful mountain panorama must be the best thing you will ever witness.
The Kala Patthar itself is a tiny peak, and the views from the top are just unbelievable. However, if you are tired from the previous day, you can skip this walk. After spending some time at Kala Pathar, we get back to Gorakshep for breakfast.
Then, we start walking down to the lower altitude. We will walk for about 2-3 hours to Pheriche, or that day, if you want to go back to Kathmandu by helicopter, it’s also possible by joining our Everest heli Trek.
Day 12: Trek to Namche
Walking duration: 4 hours
Walking downwards again leads us to the Imja River. First, we move to Phungki Thanka and then walk for another hour to Kyangjuma. You can witness the drastic change in the landscape—the alpine grassland has now changed into a thick forest.
After about 4 hours of easy walking, we will be back in Namche. This place is already familiar to you. So, you expect at least a luxurious dinner and a hot shower.
Day 13: Trek to Lukla
Walking duration: 3 hours
From Namche to Lukla, the path moves steeply downwards. You might remember these stairs and suspension bridges from our walk on the 4th day of the trek. Like earlier, we cross Mani-stone, chortens, prayer flags, and a beautiful pine forest, leading us to Monjo and finally to Lukla.
After this night spend in Lukla, our Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek comes to the end.
Day 14: Fly to Kathmandu
No matter how hard we fall in love with the mountains, we always have to get back. The agency books your flight from Lukla to Kathmandu in the morning. Leaving your team and the mountains, you get to reach Kathmandu within 25 minutes.
Again, a car picks you up at the airport and drives you to the hotel in Thamel. You can enjoy a relaxing massage for the daytime and let your body recover. Also, there’s time for more sightseeing around the valley.
In the evening, we celebrate our successful trek. We raise a toast to the successful conquest of the Everest Base Camp and enjoy a final meal together.
Day 15: Departure
So, this is the end of your wonderful Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek. A driver will take you to the airport as per your flight time. Complete your custom formality and get back home safely.
