Overview

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 Mountain Lodges of Nepal (MLN) accommodation that we use offers 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 MLN 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.

Is this holiday for you?

Generally, the trekking conditions on this comfort trek in the Everest region are relatively easy, following good paths and yak trails throughout.

Generally, the trekking conditions on this comfort trek in the Everest region are relatively easy, following good paths and yak trails throughout. Trekking from Thame to Kongde and from Kongde to Phakding, however, we will encounter trails which are less often trekked and which have one or two more challenging sections. The maximum altitude reached on the holiday is under 5000 metres and the maximum altitude at which we sleep is 4250 metres. By Himalayan standards this is not so high and the altitude issues attendant on a trek to Everest Basecamp, for example, should not be of concern to us on this holiday. It should be noted however, that trekking at altitudes above 3000 metres makes greater demands on the body than walking at low elevations and can be challenging even for fit hikers. The holiday is well staged for an introductory walk in the Khumbu using the comfortable Yeti Mountain Home lodges along the way. No camping is involved You will need to ensure you are physically prepared for the trek and you should be comfortable walking for 4 to 6 hours each day and for several days continuously. This Everest trekking holiday should be well within the capabilities of all fit and active hikers.

The group will rendezvous at our hotel in Kathmandu. Transfers from Kathmandu Airport are provided. Depending on your arrival time, you may have the opportunity to do some independent exploration in this colourful and bustling city. Alternatively, you may prefer to recover from your journey by relaxing in the hotel gardens or beside the pool. KE Land Only package services begin with the evening meal. Your guide will take dinner with you and will provide an informal briefing about the days ahead.

After an early breakfast, we take a bus to the domestic terminal of Kathmandu Airport (or transfer to Ramechhap) where we check in for the short flight to Lukla (2840m). Landing on the narrow, sloping runway in the heart of the mountains is a very spectacular way to reach the Khumbu. We have lunch at the Mountain Lodges of Nepal (MLN) Lukla Lodge, before meeting our trekking crew and setting off on the first stage of our trek. The short and very pleasant afternoon's walk leads down to the river through the the pastoral lands of the Sherpas, many of whom now make their living from trekking. There are many tea houses and basic lodges where its possible to stop for a drink or a chat. We will also see many stones intricately carved with prayers in the evocative Tibetan script and prayer wheels of all sizes. Everywhere in the valley colourful strings of prayer flags flutter from high points and bridges. We overnight at the MLN Phakding Lodge.

A very pleasant walk by the river through pine forest leads to a short climb to escape a narrow gorge section. We pass the entrance to the Khumbu National Park where details of our permits are recorded and then drop down again to the river which we cross on a suspension bridge. We continue up the wooded valley on a good trail and cross the river again before reaching a confluence of rivers one coming down from Thame and the other from the main Khumbu Valley. We make a final crossing here on a spectacular high suspension bridge and then begin an hour and half long ascent to Namche on a wide switch back trail. This is the sting in the tail of today’s otherwise gentle ascent, and one of the steepest of the trek. About an hour below Namche, we gain our first views of Everest. On arrival in Namche, we check into the MLN Namche Lodge.

Namche Bazaar is tucked away between 2 ridges amongst the giant peaks of the Khumbu. An ancient market place where goods from as far away as Tibet were and still are traded, Namche today boasts an abundance of lodges, cafes, bars and souvenir shops. Close to our lodge is the internationally known Museum of Sherpa Culture and the traditional villages of Kunde and Kumjung are a highly recommended half-day excursion. The location of our lodge is superb giving us a birds eye view over Namche and across the Valley to the serrated ridges of the Kongde range, while the magnificent peak of Thamserku (6623m) rises as a backdrop. Just a short walk away is a classic view of Ama Dablam, one of the most beautiful mountains in all Nepal and of Lhotse and Everest. This is an ideal place to spend the day, acclimatising to the new altitude before heading further up-valley to Thame.

After breakfast at our lodge we start the day with a 2 to 3-hour walk through forest of spruce, juniper and pine to the village of Thamo. This trail is much less used by trekkers and we will immediately notice the difference. It is, however, an important trail which leads all the way to Tibet via the Nangpa La on the shoulder of Cho Oyu (8012m). On today’s trek we are likely to see few other trekkers. We stop for our lunch in Thamo which is the home village of the Ang Rita Sherpa, who has summitted Everest 10 times without oxygen. After lunch, we continue walking for another 2 hours to arrive at a deep gorge where the Bhote Koshi River thunders through the narrow defile. We cross a sturdy bridge spanning the gorge to reach Thame (3800m). This important village is the home of many famous mountaineers including Tensing Norgay the first man to reach the summit of Everest along with Sir Edmund Hillary. Apa Sherpa who has reached the summit at least 18 times lives here now. The village is very picturesque and also has a magnificent 16th century Nyingmapa gompa (monastery) built by Lama Rolwa Dorje. We check into our comfortable rooms at the MLN Thame Lodge with breathtaking views of Thamserku and Kusum Kanguru.

After spending some time here, there is the option to extend our acclimatisation walk up to a shoulder of Sumdur Peak where we have magnificent views of Teng Kangpoche, Kongde and Everest. We return to spend a second night at our cosy lodge in Thame.

Now fit and well acclimatised, we have 2 tougher trekking days which bring great rewards in terms of the outstanding Himalayan panoramas which they allow us. We start out today with a descent of around 30 minutes and then follow a trail on the south side of the Bhote Kosi River, through the tiny village of Pare. We then climb gradually through beautiful rhododendron, pine and bamboo forest to arrive at the glacier of Kongde Peak where we have stunning views of Everest, Lhotse and Ama Dablam. This is a very new trail, built specifically to access the MLN Kongde Lodge and we are unlikely to see many other trekkers at all on this section. Although the trail is well built it does cross some very steep ground and there is one short section where cables are used as hand rails to safeguard progress. Sherpas will be on hand to assist anyone who may be less than comfortable with this section. We check into our lodge for the next two nights in Kongde. This lodge situated at 4250 metres and has the most spectacular view, looking right across the valley to Namche and beyond to Thyangboche, with the backdrop of Everest, Lhotse and Ama Dablam. The restaurant and bar serve fine wines and delicious cuisine which we can enjoy while watching the sunset on the world's highest peak out of the window. It just doesn't get better than this!

For those who wish to make the excursion to Farak Ri (5000m) we have an early start to catch the best views. It will take us 2 to 3 hours to reach the top of this viewpoint peak. From the summit, we are treated to a panoramic view of the entire Khumbu Valley, including four of the six highest peaks in the world, namely Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho Oyu. Returning to Kongde we take lunch on the terrace with our birds-eye view over Namche and Khumjung village, and the rest of the day is free for relaxing or further walks in the area.

From our high perch above the Dudh Kosi river the trail to Phakding descends quite steeply and trekking poles are highly recommended. There is no hurry and along the way we have the chance to spend time in a number of small Sherpa settlements, situated off the main trail and unused to seeing trekkers. Finally, we reach the Everest Trail and continue our trek back to Phakding and the comforts of the MLN Phakding Lodge.

Remembering that our first day's walk from Lukla was downhill and what comes down must go up, prepare for the sting in the tail as we climb steeply for the final 40 minutes to crest the ridge on which Lukla Airstrip was built. Here we check in at the MLN Lukla Lodge for our last night in the Khumbu.

Essential Information

We've compiled some of our Frequently Asked Questions to help you learn more about this amazing trip.

  • A professional and qualified Nepalese tour leader
  • Kathmandu Airport transfers
  • Internal flights and all land transport included in the itinerary
  • Accommodation as described in the trip dossier
  • All meals
  • Once on trek the group will be assisted by porters and a local guide
  • FREE down jacket hire is available for this holiday on request

  • Travel Insurance
  • Nepalese Visa
  • Tips for porters and other trek staff
  • Miscellaneous expenses - drinks and souvenirs etc.

The group will meet at the hotel in Kathmandu.

Transfers are provided from/to Kathmandu Airport for all clients arriving on Day 1 of the Land Only itinerary and departing on the last day of the Land Only itinerary.

Hotel contact details and an emergency number will be provided with your booking confirmation.

All meals outside of Kathmandu are included. Breakfasts and the first night and last night dinners in Kathmandu are also included.

It is not recommended to drink untreated water from the taps. If you are on a trekking or cycling holiday, water is supplied to fill up your individual bottles. This will be boiled, filtered or provided in large jerry cans or 5 litre bottles. Additionally you should take purification tablets or a filter bottle (such as a Water-To-Go bottle) to treat your water when in towns or where water is not supplied. We do not encourage the purchasing of single use plastic bottles.

The restaurants at Yeti mountain Home lodges offer a wide range of dishes prepared by trained chefs. There will be the opportunity to sample local cuisine but there will always be an option for more familiar international dishes. Breakfast will usually be porridge, eggs, bread and a hot drink, lunch will be a simple meal with a hot drink, and dinner will be 3 courses consisting of soup, main meal and a simple desert. If you wish to order additional dishes and/or snacks, you should budget accordingly. In Kathmandu it is possible to see a restaurant or dish from almost every cuisine in the world.

Whilst in Kathmandu the group will stay in 5-star luxury at the renowned Yak and Yeti Hotel which offers a range of first-class facilities including a fitness centre, luxury spa and swimming pool. The Yak and Yeti will assure you of a restful start and finish to your time in Nepal. While on trek we will have a total of 9 nights in lodges run by Mountain Lodges of Nepal (formerly Yeti Mountain Home properties) where we stay in comfortable twin or double rooms with attached bathroom and hot and cold running water. While the lodges we use in the Khumbu are vastly superior to standard lodges (which generally do not have running hot water and use shared washing rooms and toilets) they occupy remote locations and all furnishings fittings and equipment have to be brought in by porters. You should therefore not expect the standards that can be achieved in a city hotel. All accommodation is allocated on a twin sharing basis. If you are travelling by yourself you will be paired up with another single client of the same sex. Depending on availability, single rooms can be requested at a supplementary cost. Additional hotel nights in Kathmandu can also be arranged.

Access to the high and remote areas of the Himalaya where our treks start is often only possible using internal flights. The changeable nature of mountain weather makes flying conditions complex. In addition, the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal does not operate to the same standards as those of western nations and all airlines in Nepal appear on the UK Air Safety List (ASL), and are banned from operating commercial air services to, from, and within the United Kingdom. Flying in Nepal is an acknowledged risk, and the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office travel advice provides further details which you can read on their website. KE is mindful of its duty of care to clients travelling with us in Nepal and we are stakeholders in an annual independent air audit of Nepal airlines undertaken by UK tour operators, most recently undertaken in February 2024. KE uses 5 airlines in Nepal which have been approved by this audit. These airlines are: Buddha Air, Summit Airlines, Shree, Tara and Yeti. We continue to cooperate with other tour operators to monitor aviation safety in Nepal and will ensure we remain a stakeholder in any further air safety audits. While we have taken appropriate action to try to minimise the risks of flying in Nepal, you should be aware that flying in mountainous terrain is not without any risk.

Please note that poor weather can cause delays on internal flights. If at the start of your holiday internal flights are cancelled for the day, you will spend an extra night near the airport (this may be at a hotel other than the group hotel). On the majority of trips there is enough flexibility in the trekking itinerary to make up 1 or possibly 2 lost days, but an alternative trek will be provided if delays to internal flights mean the original itinerary (or a shortened version of it) is no longer feasible.

For trips that end with an internal flight out of the mountains with no alternative road access, we have included 2 nights in Kathmandu as a contingency against delay. In the extremely unlikely event that a delay to your internal flight causes you to miss your homeward international flight, KE will re-book international flights for Flight Inclusive clients, but please be aware that clients booking on a Land Only basis will be responsible for re-booking their onward travel and for any associated costs. We advise you to take out suitable travel insurance and to keep your receipts, as you may subsequently be able to make a claim.

The group will be led by a professional and qualified Nepalese tour leader, assisted by an experienced team including Sherpa guides and porters.

This holiday involves going to very high altitude. During the course of your trip you will be spending at least one night above 4000 metres and/or trekking to 5000 metres or above. This is not something that you should worry about; the human body is quite capable of adapting to a very wide range of altitudes, but it is important that we follow some simple rules in order to acclimatise successfully. Before coming on this holiday you should read the advice on trekking at high altitude. Unless you have previous experience of trekking above 4000 metres you should consult one of our trekking experts before embarking on this holiday. On this trip we carry a portable altitude chamber (PAC-bag) and/or bottled oxygen for use in emergencies.

Approximately £200 (or equivalent in US dollars, Euros etc.) should be allowed for miscellaneous expenses including porter and trek crew tips, beer, soft drinks etc. It is not necessary to obtain local currency prior to departure. Sterling, US Dollars and Euros are equally acceptable for exchange in Nepal. Please note: Scottish and Northern Ireland bank notes are not accepted in Nepal. We recommend that you carry your travel money in the form of cash, since you will exchange the majority of this on the day of your arrival in Kathmandu. If you prefer not to carry all of your spending money in cash, it is possible to withdraw money from ATMs in Kathmandu using your debit or credit card. During the trek it is possible to buy snacks, chocolate, soft drinks and beer on most days. Please be aware that since everything has to be carried up, these items become more expensive as you gain altitude.

Tipping is the accepted way of saying thank you for good service. Normally the porters and any other trek staff are given their tips at the end of the trek and this is best done as a group. Your Nepali tour leader will advise the group on an appropriate level of tipping. Most groups will hand out the tips with a bit of ceremony (or sometimes a party) on the last evening, to mark the end of the holiday. As a guide, we recommend that each group member contributes around £60 (in rupees) to these tips. At the end of their trek many people also like to donate various items of equipment to the porters and trek staff who work so hard to make the trip a success. Boots, gloves, hats, scarves and even socks are always warmly received by the porters. Your tour leader will make arrangements for a fair distribution (possibly by raffle) amongst the trek crew. Please note that you will have the opportunity to tip your tour leader separately (and additionally) during dinner on the final evening of the holiday.

Our holidays are normally designed with minimal 'down time' at the start of the trip, but having a day or two at the beginning will have the additional benefit of allowing you time to get over the stress of a long journey or travelling across time zones, leaving you refreshed and ready for your holiday. We can easily arrange for you to have additional nights and airport transfers.

Your main item of luggage should be a sturdy kit bag, duffle bag or similar. This will be carried during the trek by porters or pack animals and must weigh no more than 15kg. You should also take on your holiday a daypack of approximately 30 litres capacity. For all flights to and from STOL airstrips in Nepal the maximum allowance for hold baggage AND hand baggage combined is 15kg and you should make every effort to keep to this total weight. It is usually not a problem to check in a couple of kg more than this, but you may be required to pay a small excess luggage charge. It is possible to leave items not required on trek at the hotel in Kathmandu. For your international flights, please check the baggage allowance with your airline.

For each holiday there is a minimum number of participants required to enable it to go ahead. Once the minimum number is reached, the trip status will change from 'Available' to 'Guaranteed to run'. You can check the trip status for each departure in ‘Dates and Prices’ table. Other than in exceptional circumstances, we will not cancel a trip once it has achieved this guaranteed to run status and so you are free to proceed with your international flight booking and other travel arrangements.

The information that we provide is for UK passport holders. A passport with 6 months remaining validity at the end of your stay is generally required, and you should have at least 2 blank pages for each country that you visit.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the correct travel documents and visas for your holiday. Please ensure that you check for the latest advice before travel. For the most up to date information on entry requirements, please visit the UK Government website.

Visa Nepal

All nationalities require a visa. The visa process is partly automated and the fee is $30 for 15 days, $50 for 30 days, $125 for 90 days. The visa is FREE for children under 10 years. The visa allows multiple re-entry. Payment must be made in cash and USD, GBP or Euros are accepted.

Part of this on-arrival visa process involves filling in a ‘Tourist Visa Application Form’ and you can simplify the procedure at Kathmandu Airport by filling this form in online (within 15 days of travelling) at this link. This generates a receipt which you present (hard copy or saved on your phone) on arrival. This should allow you to go straight to the cashier to pay for your visa and has the potential to save you time in the visa queue.

Whilst these are not now needed for the visa process, we recommend that you travel with at least 2 spare passport photographs.



If you are travelling via India (Delhi or Calcutta) to your destination you may also require a visa for India. This may apply even if you are not leaving the airport unless your baggage has been checked all the way through to your destination. Generally, if you use the same carrier for both legs of your journey, you will not need an India Visa. Please download the detailed information document: Visa PDF India.

TREKKING PERMITS – WHAT DO WE NEED FROM YOU ?

For treks in the Everest region – EBL, EVL, EHW, ELL - we need your passport details and we need you to take with you to Nepal 2 passport photographs. You will hand these over to your local leader on Day 1.

For treks in the Annapurna region – ASL, ACL, UAT, ANL and for the Gosainkund and Langtang Trek - GLT – we need your passport details and we need to send through to Nepal ahead of your departure a scan of a passport-style photograph of yourself. Please send this to us once your holiday is guaranteed.

For these Conservation Area treks and other treks requiring Special Permits – KAN, DLG, NAP – we need to send through to Nepal ahead of your departure a scan of a passport-style photograph of yourself and a scan of the information pages of your passport. Please send these to us once your holiday is guaranteed. On arrival in Kathmandu you will still be required to provide your passport (with your visa) for presentation at the Nepal Tourism Board. Your passport will be returned to you by your tour leader at dinner.

For those trips requiring Climbing Permits – MER, IPC, CTL, YAR - we need to send to Nepal ahead of your departure, a scan of a passport-style photograph of yourself and a scan of the information pages of your passport. Please send these to us once your holiday is guaranteed. On arrival in Kathmandu, for YAR and for CTL, you will still be required to provide your passport (with your visa) for presentation at the Nepal Tourism Board. Your passport will be returned to you by your tour leader at dinner.

If you have a severe allergy please inform the KE office before you travel. We will do all we can to help, but we cannot guarantee an allergy free environment on KE trips. You will need to carry your own treatment for the allergy with you, as 'adrenaline auto-injectors' are not carried as standard by KE leaders and staff. You should inform your leader on arrival of your allergy, and let them know where you keep your adrenaline pen.

Dengue fever is a known risk in places visited. It is a tropical viral disease spread by daytime biting mosquitoes. There is currently no vaccine or prophylaxis available and therefore the best form of prevention is to avoid being bitten. We recommend you take precautions to avoid mosquito bites.

Vaccinations

You should contact your doctor or travel clinic to check whether you require any specific vaccinations or other preventive measures. You should be up to date with routine courses and boosters as recommended in the UK e.g. diphtheria-tetanus-polio and measles-mumps-rubella, along with hepatitis A and typhoid.

Malarial prophylaxis is not usually required for trips in the mountains, however if you are visiting rural and remote low lying areas then they might be necessary.

On holidays to more remote areas you should also have a dentist check up. A good online resource is Travel Health Pro.

The unit of currency in Nepal is the Nepalese Rupee.

It makes a lot of sense to spend some time before coming on a trekking holiday getting some additional exercise. The fitter you are, after all, the more enjoyable you will find the experience. Although the trekking on this trip is not difficult or sustained, hiking at altitude is more demanding than similar terrain at lower elevations. We suggest that you adopt a weekly exercise regime leading up to your trip. Regular hiking in hill country is the best training but any regular exercise such as jogging and swimming is also good for developing cardio vascular fitness and stamina. Before coming on the trip we recommend that you make time for some longer walks in hilly country. It is also a good idea to do some reading about the culture of Nepal and of the Sherpa people who live in the Everest region. There are many books on this subject and some are listed below.

The months of March to May and October to December either side of the summer monsoon season offer the best conditions for trekking. The post-monsoon months usually offer the clearest skies and the most settled weather while spring brings the blooms of the rhododendron at lower elevatuions. In both seasons you should expect pleasant daytime walking conditions, even getting a little hot around mid-day. Above 3000 metres once the sun goes down (around 5.30 pm) the outside temperature plummets dropping close to or below freezing. The norm in these periods is for clear and settled weather but mountains do produce their own micro-climate and short-lived storms including rain or snow cannot be ruled out.

As a reputable tour operator, KE supports the British Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office's ‘Travel Aware campaign to enable British citizens to prepare for their journeys overseas. The 'Travel Aware' website provides a single, authoritative source of advice for all kinds of travellers and we recommend that prior to travel, all KE clients visit the official UK Government website at travelaware.campaign.gov.uk and read the FCDO Travel Advice for their chosen destination. North Americans can also check out the U.S. Department of State website: www.travel.state.gov for essential travel advice and tips.

KE treat the safety and security of all clients as the most important aspect of any trip we organise. We would not run any trip that we did not consider reasonably safe.  Should the FCDO advise against travel for any reason, we will contact everyone booked to travel to discuss the situation.  We receive regular updates direct from the FCDO and are in constant touch with our contacts on the ground.  If you have any questions about government travel advice, please call our office.

KE do not encourage the use of single use plastic items. We are ensuring that our agents all over the world are working together to reduce the problem and educate those around them. We are leading by example in our KE office by reducing our plastic use.

Everest Base Camp. 1: 50,000 Nepa / National Geographic Maps

This map which is a collaboration between National Geographic and the long established Nepal publisher, Nepa Maps, is probably the best for this trek. It has relief shading and a 40m. contour interval.

It is an essential condition of joining a holiday with KE Adventure Travel that you have a valid travel insurance policy to cover the cost of medical treatment and to protect the value of your holiday in the event of cancellation.  When taking out insurance please ensure the policy you choose covers you for the activities and altitude included in your itinerary.

For appropriate insurance cover we recommend Campbell Irvine Direct.  Please go to our Travel Insurance page for further information and to get a quote.

Please note that a paper copy of your travel insurance is required if you are travelling to Huaraz and the Huayhuash region.

Wonderful trek in sight of Everest ★★★★★

We had to wait 3 years to do this trek, but it was worth the wait! The scenery was stunning, the lodges comfortable and our guides were helpful, caring and knowledgeable. We think the trek is correctly labelled as level 5, there were 3 hard days but all doable with a reasonable level of fitness, and the days in between were great to acclimatise. The highlight was definitely making it to Konde where the views of Everest were amazing, a very special place and having breakfast outside at 4250 metre s will never be forgotten! The other special thing about this trek was that after you have left Namche you have the trail virtually to yourself, the terrain is also varied, always something to look at. Our only advice is to have warm clothes and thermals for the lodges, they were very comfortable, clean and served lovely food, but apart from the communal areas they are unheated, though you do have electric blankets or a hot water bottle! This was a great trek, worth the money so go for it!

Second time on this trek ★★★★★

I chose to do this trek again because it is superb for scenery and to help me acclimatise for a second trek. I first did this in 2017. The path up to Kongde and the path down have been changed / improved. The scenery is fabulous throughout in good weather. We had the added bonus of a golf tournament in Kongde (highest in the world). Some comments on the route description. The path up to Kongde has been upgraded, it is 15 km from the YMH from Thame. It has sections which might feel exposed to tho se who fear heights, but these sections have wire rope to hold on to. The most exposed bit has a hand rail protection as well. The 50 m ascent by fixed metal rope is still there; it was very easy this time because no ice or snow. The new route is less steep. Once at Kongde, do not miss the ascent of Farak Ri. We all measured it at 4630m (not 5000m as in the itinerary) so it is relatively easy and a fabulous viewpoint.The descent from Kongde to the Dudh Kosi valley is significantly easier now that the path includes some swichbacks which reduce the steepness. All of the trek sits comfortably within its Grade 5 rating apart from one hard day ascending to Kongde. If anything, I enjoyed my second visit more than my first.

Spectacular Trek ★★★★★

Great upscale trek with the luxury of lodges. Views all along are outstanding, especially from Farak Ri. We first trekked to Annapurna Base Camp and added this one for a bit of luxury in the Khumbu region. Off the main path once out of Namche Bazzar which was nice with many fewer trekkers. Highly recommended.

By Raymond from Acworth | 27 November 2017

Brilliant trek, outstanding views, great leader - undergraded ★★★★

The highlight was breakfast at Kongde, which should feature on everybody's bucket list. My second visit to the Khumbu, I knew what to expect, but the views just blew me away. The lodges took the edge off the cold, the food was great, ensuite facilities were a bonus. Our guide Rajendra Gurung is a wildlife and birding expert, helping us see birds that we would never have seen with any other guide. Tip: If you are interested in birds, ask for Rajendra. Such a brilliant trek, why 4 stars? The degre e of difficulty in the walk up to Kongde and back down to Phakding is much harder than the trek notes suggest. The walk up includes a 50m near vertical section of fixed ropes (at 4000 m altitude !) requiring upper body strength that I did not have. The guides hauled us up. It had snowed, there was black ice in places and we were lucky that no one was ill and only I was affected by altitude and therefore slow. (I was told that a couple of days later, this section was covered in black ice and steps had to be cut by the guides.) Going down from Kongde to Phakding was on a "yak trail" with loose scree in places , occasionally exposed and affected by snow at the higher altitudes. Those of us with experience were OK on this section, but all of us fell at least once, me three times. My experience hill walking in the Lake District meant that I found this section OK, but novice trekkers might find it intimidating. After this trek I went to the Annapurna Sanctuary, which was easier. I would suggest to KE that they revisit the trek grading or be more explicit in the trek notes.
By Natalena from Keswick | 27 November 2017

A massive sense of achievement ★★★★★

We were lucky, our flight to Lukla was only 3 hrs late (not days, as it had been ) After an easy intro, the next days is long and hard and tough, up to Namche. This is one of 3 tough days well beyond "Grade 4". But the pain is forgotten when you wake up to blue skies and snow-capped mountains. You'll walk up the view point above Namche - and there is Everest and all the other peaks. Thence to Thame, where we were lucky to have snow. It made the trek up to Kongde very hard (10 hrs), but was beaut iful. AND all the pain falls away when you wake up the next morning to "the best view in Nepal." The 1600m decsent on a rocky path is the 3rd hard day. Tips The lodges are great but the bedroom unheated. Put the electric blanket on & retreat to the communal stove All the lodges provide water Have an extra water bottle to use in bed! Learn to put out your clothes before you start the shower Savour the moment!

Everest Yeti Trail

By Ogla from KE Adventure | 02 November 2017

Incredible mountain and cultural experience
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
An amazing trek. Our guide – Pemba Sherpa – was excellent and wonderful company. He was an encyclopaedia of knowledge about the mountains, scenery, people, culture, religion, way of life, animals and botany, and he seemed to know most people we passed on the way! The trek took in stunning scenery and above Namche covered ground with few other trekkers present. Good to experience the monasteries and local life too. The ‘luxury’ lodges are not European standards of luxury – but you did g et your own room, bathroom - and even the showers worked most of the time! Great views of Everest and other 8000 + peaks – especially from Kongde. We are seasoned UK mountain walkers and found the walking very manageable – although at over 3500 metres, the altitude made it quite hard work! I had my own GPS unit which said we covered more mileage than KE itinerary intimated (over 90 miles, and a total of 5100m ascent). Definitely worth adding an extra day or two in Kathmandu at the end of the trek as flights out of Lukla very weather dependant. All in all, a top trek. Great organisation and support from KE, and a quite brilliant guide.

Yeti Mountain Trek
★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Great Trek. The local guide was great and the inns were very nice. This is a nice trek with inns that provide good comfort and very good local food. The views were incredible. All in all I would rate this trip as excellent and well worth the money.

By Gary from Eagle | 19 May 2017

A wonderful life changing experience enjoyed in comfort
★ ★ ★ ★ ★

A trek that is achievable by any keen walker, this route gives unrivalled views of Everest, Lhotse and Ama Dablam and the route takes in trails and passes rarely used by other trekkers. The YMH lodges provide great comfort and excellent food with a high level of care from the wonderful staff. Our trek leader, Lhakpa Rita Sherpa and his team were fantastic and made the trip the life changing experience that it was. Thanks to all. Mark and Gerry

By Mark from Milford Haven | 15 May 2017

Excedllent apart from weather first week and tea houae at Debouche.
★ ★ ★ ★
Guide (Milan), sirdar (Nadee) and helpers (2 sherpas) very good. Yeti Montain Homes excellent: would never use tea houses in Nepal again. Sadly couldn't go to Kongde and replacement accommodation at Debouche nowhere near that standard. Had to ask for flask of boiled water in room and for toilet paper. These were apparently chargeable but Nadee sorted everything out. Electric blankets seemed a recently added feature and wires were trailing dangerously over the floor. Needed head torches. Plug soc kets were amazing and seemed to take any sort of plug: 2 or 3 pin.
By Adventure from COMBERBACH | 17 May 2016

KE Adventure reply

We are pleased you thought the Yeti Mountain Homes were excellent. They are something special and most people do not expect to find such surprisingly well appointed and comfortable accommodation high in the Himalaya, several days walk from the nearest road. As we informed your group prior to departure, the Kongde Yeti Mountain Home suffered some damage during the Spring 2015 earthquake and so for this night, the group was accommodated in the best alternative lodge in Debouche. You are right that these 'tea-houses' - where an electric blanket is the height of luxury - seem quite rustic by comparison. We expect to be able to return to Kongde next season.
