Do you want to experience a unique trekking experience in the Everest region of the Himalayas, with overnight stays in luxury lodges along the way? This 13-day trip includes a trekking experience on Yeti Trail: Kongde Trek, one of the best treks in the Everest region.

Unlike other treks, the Yeti trail does not follow the regular trail towards base camp but moves towards Thame, from where the 3-passes trek normally continues. We continue our trek towards Kongde to the comfort lodge of Yeti Mountain Home, situated at an elevation of 4250m. From here you will get stunning views of Mt. Everest along with other panoramic views of Thamserku and Ama Dablam.

The whole trek is based on staying in comfort lodges for each of the overnights. Every room has a heated blanket to keep you warm all night long! The meals are organically prepared and the vegetables are plucked from our own greenhouse in each of our lodges.

This package trip also includes 3 nights in a luxury Kathmandu hotel, a mountain flight before and after the trek and sightseeing in the Kathmandu Valley.
5 Star Hotel at Hotel Yak and Yeti
Reception and assistance by our representative at Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu. A short drive will take you to your hotel where you can rest for a few moments. The welcome drink will be an opportunity to present the program and take stock of the documents required for the trekking permit.
