Everest Luxury Trek is the easiest trek in Everest Region in all aspects. A weeklong trekking holiday under Everest, the trek showcases the incredible culture and nature of Everest Region in a moderately adventurous way. In fact it is also an offbeaten trek in Everest as very few trekkers willing to trek in the region prefer luxury over adventure. Having said that no trek in Everest is easy in terms of elavation as each of them begin from Lukla, which itself lies above 2600m. Hence, we recommend absolute fitness to undertake this trek.

This trek is especially designed for those trekkers who prefer to walk short hours everyday. Trekkers shall be prepared to pay handsome money for thier luxurious stay in geographically challenged most remote corner on earth. Throughout the trek, we shall accommodate trekkers in handpicked luxurious lodges of the region.

An opportunity to sight the exceptional views of Himalayan landscapes dominated by Everest and closest neighbors with luxury is the prime highlight of the trek. Moreover, the trek to villages like Thame and Mende unfolds the authentic Sherpa culture. The glimpse of highland forested region of Sagarmatha National Park, the outstanding views of Dudh Koshi River Valley and the incredibly warming Sherpa hospitality are also the important highlights of the trek. Plus, local and trained Sherpa guides would put 100 percent effort to make this easy trek in Everest a holiday of a lifetime.

 Altitude Mountain sickness

AMS is the abbreviation for Acute Mountain sickness also termed as the High Altitude Sickness. AMS is one of the challenges that the trekkers/ climbers might face during their climb in the mountains. As you reach higher in the altitude the oxygen level gradually decreases. If a person tries to climb too quickly then there is a higher chance of getting AMS. The major symptoms of AMS are

  • Headache
  • loss of appetite
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • dizziness
  • tiredness
  • difficulty in sleeping etc

 However, AMS can be avoided by using some precautionary measures such as drinking plenty of water, eating enough food and walking in the steady pace. Our experienced guides who have been working in the Himalayas will help and instruct you for further measures. You will also be provided with a Gamow bag upon request at an additional charge which is considered a major gear to reduce the effect of AMS. In the worst case scenario, we shall arrange a rescue and evacuation using a helicopter whose cost should be covered by your travel insurance.

 Acclimatization

We are experts at operating at high-altitude. Every trip we run has a realistic acclimatization programme. Our treks are designed to allow gradual height gain, spread over a number of days. There is no way of predicting who will suffer from altitude but, for the vast majority of people, a slow ascent to height will produce minimal effects.

 Physical Fitness

We strongly recommend our clients for consulting the doctor before planning their holidays. You should obtain professional advice from a travel clinic or your local Physician. Technical experience is not needed in every hiking/camping packages.
