If you are like me then you would have dreampt of climbing Everest and experiencing tranquility like you`ll find nowhere else on Earth. Yeah it`s a long walk – but it makes it easier to do it in as much luxury as possible rather than tents on the side of a mountain.
I stumbled across this rather good little UK based company who specialise in organising luxury Everest treks. Whilst the lodges may not be of the same luxury you are used to, they are by far the best you`ll find in the area.
One of the many stunning views ‘Ama Dablam’.
The trek between lodges takes you through beautiful Nepalese villages with spectacular views of the Khumbu and Everest region. This is a moderate walk, designed for the first time trekker, which follows some of the classic Everest base camp trek before heading to the quieter Thame valley.
You can expect to pay around £1300 per person for 16 days including all flights and transfers – not a bad price for something you MUST see before you die!
