Luxury Everest trek to Kongde Ridge

Everest Trek to Kongde Ridge in luxury lodges.

The Everest region has been a favorite destination for trekkers and climbers, since the very first expeditions to the Nepalese side of Everest in the 1950's. Up until now trekking in the stunningly beautiful region involved either camping or staying at basic tea houses. It is now possible to trek in the Khumbu staying at comfortable lodges with all the modern conveniences of a proper hotel. The Yeti Mountain Home luxury lodges all offer spacious rooms which are pleasantly decorated and have attached bathrooms with running hot and cold water. Best of all, each has been carefully sited to present a magnificent panorama of the Himalayas from the lodge itself.

During our nine days in the homeland of the Sherpas, we trek to Namche Bazaar and have a 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 prominent 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 an option from Kongde. Twin bedded and heated rooms, en-suite bathrooms, and pleasant dining areas can now be a part of your experience on your Everest ‘Luxury' Trek.
