Everest Luxury Trek
Everest Luxury Trek

Many people dream of seeing Everest…it is the world’s highest mountain after all.


But, many are put off by the thought of having to “rough it” in a typical tea house with only the most basic of creature comforts.


We’ll…..the good news is that things have improved. There are now a number of Luxury Trekking Lodges throughout much of the Everest region. It’s a marvel in itself that these very comfortable lodges exist…there are still no roads in the Everest region, yet exist they do.

Just imagine waking up in the comfort of a real bed. You’re staring at Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse and Ama Dablam. Nipping into your en suite bathroom, you take a hot shower and you try your best not to lose the soap as you’re gawping at outrageous snowy peaks through the bathroom window. Then enjoy a hearty breakfast….still gawping.


Of course you saw it all the night before too whilst having dinner (and perhaps a cheeky glass of wine) before retiring to the comfort of your bedroom and admiring the lofty Himalayas, now dark silhouettes beneath the even darker, but star filled sky.



Now that's what we call breakfast in style!

To top it off you’ve got electricity to charge your camera/smart phone and just might even have a mobile signal or wifi so you can really annoy your friends back at home with ‘live’ images, facetweets etc. Now search the online dictionary and rewrite the definition of ‘smug’…and why not? You still had to trek there, so you did earn it. And…..yes….the above scenario is reality.

Luxury Trekking Annapurna
Luxury Trekking Annapurna

Enjoy a Annapurna luxury trek.


The Annapurna region of Nepal is simply beautiful and nowhere more so than as you follow a delightful horseshoe mini-trek through the Modi Khola Valley, beneath the towering giants of Macchapuchare (Fishtail), Annapurna South and Hiunchuli.


Of course the existence of some very comfortable, strategically located Ker and Downey 'luxury' lodges providing proper beds and private facilities each evening is a definite plus. These are the best trekking lodges in the Annapurnas. And, with all being at relatively modest altitudes it's nice to finish each day sitting outside in their pleasing gardens in the evening warmth, enjoying the magnificent views and reflecting back on the days walks.


This mini-trek has two short, rather easy days of walking and two lengthier moderate walks. But, those with a reasonable level of fitness will find that the two longer days are merely a matter of a few hours walking before and after lunch, so an unhurried pace can be readily adopted to enjoy encounters along the way.


This particular trek can be undertaken the opposite way around if preferred. Either way you'll walk along one side of the Modi Khola and then cross to the other side. Needless to say with this being one of the easiest treks in Nepal and a low altitude Himalayan trek too, these upmarket trekking lodges get booked out regularly. It's wise to plan ahead and have some flexibility.

Everest view from the Renjo La- Everest The Hard Way Trek
Everest view from the Renjo La- Everest The Hard Way Trek

A very challenging Himalayan trek and a quieter trek to Everest Base Camp. Instead of following the usual route to Everest Base Camp this trek goes even more off the beaten track and includes the tough ascent of the Renjo La to Gokyo, then across the Cho La and a backdoor route to EBC. Definitely the realm of the serious, commited and very strong trekker. Possibly the greatest Nepal walking holiday.


The altitudes involved in this trek up to EBC demand respect and thus the walking becomes more challenging as a result. There's the possibility to extend this trek and include the Kongma La on the return from Everest Base Camp to form what has become known as the Three Passes Everest Trek.

Manaslu Peak on the Manaslu Circuit Trek
Manaslu Peak on the Manaslu Circuit Trek

A superb and much quieter circuit trek of an 8000m peak, the Manaslu Circuit has always been the more discerning choice to the Annapurna Circuit. It's a very challenging trek with some very long walking days and at high altitudes.


In many ways the Manaslu Circuit feels more 'remote' and wilder than the Annapurna Circuit. Being a less busy Nepal trek, many of the trekking lodges are much simpler and more basic by default.


To the serious and experienced mountain walker this will be a 'mere incidental' with the attraction being some of the best mountain walking to be found anywhere in the world. Stupendous views of Himalayan giants as well as an opportunity to experience life in isolated villages where the Tibetan culture remains unspoilt.


Very much a trek for the walking connoisseur with a good level of fitness who thrives in a high mountain wilderness and is capable of trekking for several continuous, lengthy, tough days.

Nepal Luxury Holidays- Infinity Pool, Dwarika's Himalayan Spa Resort
Nepal Luxury Holidays- Infinity Pool, Dwarika's Himalayan Spa Resort

It seems to be a bit of a secret that you can enjoy Nepal Luxury Holidays.


But, you most certainly can. Nepal isn't a backpackers only destination. Whether it be a luxury cultural tour of Nepal, or even a Nepal luxury adventure holiday you can enjoy the majesty of the Himalayas, the sheer variety and beauty of Nepal and stay in first class hotels and luxury lodges.


Our tailor made Nepal Luxury Holidays are precisely that. The exclusive tours featured below are suggestions and with the knowledge and experience of Snow Cat Travel, they can be customised to suit.


Our Nepal Luxury Tours use the finest accommodations in each and every location visited, including the renowned, world famous Dwarikas Hotels in Kathmandu and Dhulikel.


Highly recommended would be to consider including visits to the hill town of Bandipur and the delightfully rural village of Nuwakot. Although both are slightly off the beaten track, each are home to charming and cosy rural heritage boutique hotels.
