An Exciting Flight to Lukla

Lukla flight is the experience for you if you want a significant adrenaline rush! Few people have the chance, or to put it another way, the guts, to take a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. One of the riskiest airports in the world is the one at Lukla. For context, during the busiest months, 20 to 30 planes land in Lukla daily. Thus, almost all the 30,000 trekkers who travel to the region annually transit through Lukla!

While it is statistically riskier than a conventional commercial airport, it is relatively safe. The number of aircraft that may fly the route is limited, and airlines have tightened their regulations for what constitutes acceptable flight circumstances. The trip to Lukla can still make you nervous despite advances in passenger safety! The thrill of the rush is worth making an effort.

Enrich in the Rich Sherpa Cultural Experience

It is no surprise that Sherpas are renowned for their expertise in mountaineering. Westerners would approach locals for assistance navigating the dangerous terrain when they first started exploring the Himalayas. The Himalayan Sherpa people were adept at navigating the mountains. They are used to the lack of oxygen because they live at a high altitude. They rose to fame as mountain guides due to their unique abilities and financial guarantees.

The Sherpas had honed their adaption to the harsh, desolate landscape like any mountain tribe. They were farmers who relied on the trade of the Himalayan passes for their livelihood. The numerous gompas and chortens are proof that Buddhism had a profound influence on their way of life. You may learn more about Sherpa culture during your Everest Trek!

Everest View Luxury Trek 7 Days Itinerary

A brief, beautiful flight from Kathmandu will take you to Lukla, where the trip begins. As soon as we touch down in Lukla, we hike along the Dudh Koshi River, pass several suspension bridges, and then enter Sagarmatha National Park. We traverse stunning rhododendron forests as we stroll through the national park. We rest for the day after we finally reach Namche Bazaar. Namche Bazaar is a small town embedded in the foothills of Everest and brimming with Sherpa culture. We have an exploration day around Namche Bazaar. There are a lot of activities to do in Namche Bazaar!

Following the trek via Khumjung and Monjo, we enjoy breathtaking views of Mt. Everest and other Himalayan peaks, including Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, and other nearby summits. As we return to Lukla and board a flight to Kathmandu, we finally end our brief and comfortable trip.

Traverse the Diversity of Sagarmatha National Park

Several threatened species, like the snow leopard and red panda, inhabit the Sagarmatha National Park. It is a spectacular landscape with stunning mountains, glaciers, deep valleys, and seven peaks other than Mount Everest that rise above 7,000 meters. Founded in 1976 and with more than 2,500 Sherpa settlers, it has always combined nature and culture.

The world's highest peak, Mt. Sagarmatha (Everest), the Great Himalayan Range, and the vast Sherpa communities exemplify the park's openness to the rest of the world with eternally beautiful snow-capped summits. The park was enlisted as a UNESCO world heritage site in 1979 in recognition of the meticulous preservation of its natural heritage. Likewise, with the breathtaking magnificence of its tall, geologically pristine mountains and glaciers, the park has a flavor of its own.

Explore Namche Bazaar

Join the most welcoming communities in Namche Bazaar. Connect with the most welcoming people by entering Namche Bazaar, a location with stunning vistas. Expeditions to Everest and other nearby Himalayan peaks leave from Namche Bazaar (3,500 m). It has grown into a tiny, vibrant market town that sells everything you need for your journey, from Tibetan antiquities to trekking and climbing gear.

The tourist center near the park's main entrance provides thorough information on the many treks in the area, souvenirs from past climbing expeditions, and details on the Sherpa people's way of life and culture.

The Namche Bazaar is a teeming collection of shops, eateries, hotels, ATMs, and bakeries. A new alternative, such as bakeries, temples, or museums, lies around every corner of the narrow alleyway in the Namche market, which is shared by yaks, monks, Sherpa traders, and locals.

Despite its modernization, Namche Bazaar continues to uphold its historical customs, culture, and genuine hospitality.

Useful InformationGood to know before you travel

Everest View Luxury Trek Difficulty

The view trek to Everest is moderately easy. Even though it has a week-long itinerary, you do not have to hike a lot. After your flight to Lukla, you will hike for a few hours to reach Phakding. Then, you will ascend towards Namche bazaar, and that's about it. The rest of the days involve exploring the picturesque Namche Bazaar. You will have the last day hike when you return to Lukla. Thus, if you are an interested trekker, you can easily accomplish the trek.

Food and Accommodation in the Everest Region

It might feel like, in terms of food and accommodation, the Everest region of the Himalayas does not have a lot to offer. However, the area will surprise you! Some of the restaurants and hotels in Namche Bazaar will serve you the best quality cuisines. If you are a foodie and want to try out cuisine options such as Western, Continental, and Indian, among many others, you have a wide variety of options. Other than that, there are bakery items available as well. But, the most popular trek food in the Everest region is Dal Bhat. Dal Bhat is a traditional Nepali dish that constitutes rice, lentils, and veggies giving you a balanced diet! When you are trekking, we recommend you try some for your own.

Similarly, the accommodation in the Everest region varies depending on your budget. The standard accommodations are modest, with basic amenities such as a hot shower and WI-FI facilities. You usually get a room on a two-person sharing basis. If you want to try it out, there are luxury-style Yeti chain hotels in Namche bazaar.

Fitness Level

The Everest View Luxury Trek is moderately easy; thus, you should have some fitness level to accomplish the trek. You can try increasing your stamina and core strength with cardio exercises such as running, walking, or cycling. Zumba classes or swimming regularly can also increase your fitness level. You do not have to push yourself a lot, although consistent work-out will help you during your trek.

Concerns about Altitude Sickness

Usually, there are some concerns about catching some symptoms of altitude sickness above the elevation of 2500m. The maximum elevation gain during the Everest View Trek is around 3500m. Thus, there are some levels of concerns regarding altitude sickness. Some of the symptoms of altitude sickness include headache, nausea, vomiting, and loss of appetite. Taking safety precautions such as walking slowly, hydrating yourself frequently, and eating a balanced diet is best. You can also take the prescribed medicine with you.

If your symptoms become severe, you can descend to a village at a lower altitude or emergency evacuation via helicopter flight.

Best time for trekking in the Everest Region

Trek that takes you to Namche Bazaar is possible at any time of the year. However, autumn is considered the best time to go on a trek in the Everest region, in September, October, and December. The weather is clear during autumn with a vibrant ambiance.

Similarly, the spring months of March, April, and May are also great for the view. The temperature is also moderately warm, making your journey cozy. The winter months of December, January, and February garner the Everest region with a snowy Himalayan spirit. It might get icy; thus, we advise you to carry warm clothes for winter. Although, the views will make the trek worth it.

Similarly, June, July, and August are the monsoon months in Nepal. It will rain a lot. However, the Everest region is covered in lush green vegetation. The trek in monsoon is also a unique experience enriched in greenery. We advise carrying a raincoat for the hike in the monsoon.

Permit for trekking in the Everest Region

You require two permits for trekking in the Everest region via the Lukla trail:

  • Sagarmatha National Park Entrance Permit:

It costs around NPR 3000 (approx. US$30) to get an entry permit to the trail leading to Sagarmatha National Park.

  • Khumbu Rural Municipality Permit:

It costs around NPR 2000 (approx. US$20) for Khumbu Rural Municipality Permit.

Visit Syangboche or other Sherpa Settlements

Spending some time in Syangboche or other Sherpa settlements like Thame, Khumjung, or Khunde, which are only a few hours' walks from Namche, is an excellent alternative to exploring the Everest region.

Explore Sherpa Museum

The Sherpa museum, at 3555m, is located close to the military installation Sherpa Museum. You can wander around and discover more about Sherpa culture and way of life. An enormous statue of Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and a breathtaking view of Mount Everest and its nearby peaks make the journey memorable.

Visit Oldest Sherpa House

The oldest Sherpa home in Namche, known as Khangba Ningbo, is open to trekkers to explore. Nearly 150 years ago, Khangba Ngingba built a two-story stone house. In one of the house's rooms, a temple has been kept together with some old drawings and appliances.

Discover Namche Stupas

At the town's foot is a monastery with a ring of stupas and prayer wheels. The most fulfilling activity ever is turning the prayer wheels, as well. You'll feel content in your mind and soul and receive spiritual comfort. Among many trekkers worldwide, Namche Stupa and Mani Park have emerged as the main draws.

A town like this, which offers a flavor of Himalayan life and is heavily influenced by Buddhism, is something that everyone wants to see once in their lives. The Tibetan architectural style is quite appealing at Namche Bazaar, contrasting with the Tibetan lifestyle and culture. Consequently, you will observe the Nepalese culture and the Sherpa style of living.

Lukla Flight Cancellations

The weather in the Everest region is unpredictable, even in the peak autumn months of September, October, and November. If the Lukla flight for your set day is delayed or canceled, we will take the flight the next day. Thus, we encourage you to have a few days at hand, if possible.
