No doubt, the Everest region has been a leading destination for trekkers, hikers, and climbers, since the very first expeditions to the Nepalese side of Everest in the 1950s. Up until now, trekking in the amazing beautiful region involved either camping or staying at basic guesthouses. It is now possible to trek in the region staying at luxury lodges with all the modern conveniences of a proper hotel. The luxury lodges all offer spacious rooms that are nicely decorated and have attached bathrooms with hot showers. Best of all, each has been thoughtfully sited to present a magnificent panorama of the Himalayas from the lodge itself.
During the Luxury holidays to Everest Kongde Ridge in the homeland of the Sherpas, we hike to Namche Bazaar and have an extra day to explore this flourishing 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, with a unique panorama of Everest, Lhotse, and Ama Dablam. A day hike to the excellent viewpoint of Pharak Ri is optional from Kongde. Twin bedded and heated rooms, modern bathrooms, and pleasant dining areas can now be a part of your experience on your Luxury holidays to Everest Kongde Ridge.
