A stunning walking holiday in sight of Everest staying in the best accommodation
The Mount Everest National Park has been a popular destination for trekkers and climbers alike, since the very first expeditions to the Nepalese side of Everest in the 1950's. Up until now trekking in this stunningly beautiful region involved either camping or staying at basic tea houses. Now it is possible to trek in the Khumbu staying at comfortable lodges with many of the conveniences of a hotel. The Yeti Mountain Home lodges we use offer spacious and comfortable twin-bedded rooms, en-suite bathrooms, pleasant dining areas and good food.
Best of all, each of these lodges has been carefully sited to present a magnificent panorama of the Himalayas from the lodge itself. Staying at the Yeti Mountain Home lodges at Lukla, Phakding, Namche Bazaar, Thame and Kongde, this holiday promises the best standard of accommodation in the Khumbu and a whole new way to experience the Everest region. During our 10 days in the homeland of the Sherpas, we trek to Namche and have a day to explore this thriving settlement, before heading on to Thame. Here, we can hike to Sumdur Ridge (4830m) for unforgettable views of a host of big peaks, including Cho Oyu. Our return to Lukla then follows a brand-new trail, traversing rhododendron-covered slopes on the west side of the valley to Kongde, a veritable 'eagles nest' with a unique panorama of Everest Lhotse and Ama Dablam. This is a sensational view which people on the standard 'Everest Trail' do not get to see. A day-hike to the excellent viewpoint of Farak Ri for an even more expansive outlook on the Khumbu Valley is an option from Kongde. Comfortable accommodation can now be a part of your trekking holiday to Everest.
