The Everest View Luxury Lodge Trek is a short and easy trek to the Hotel Everest View, which sits high up in the mountains of northeastern Nepal. It's known as the highest hotel in the world! During this 8 days Everest View Luxury Lodge Trek, you'll see amazing sights of Mount Everest, the tallest mountain on Earth, and lots of other stunning Himalayan peaks. Plus, you'll get a peek into the traditions and culture of the Sherpa people, who live in this area, by visiting their villages and monasteries. Along the way, you'll also have the chance to spot some rare animals in Sagarmatha National Park.

The trek starts with a really cool flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, a small town surrounded by mountains. Then, we'll start walking to Phakding Village. After that, we'll head to Namche Bazaar, which is like the main spot for tourists in this area. Then comes the exciting part: hiking up to Hotel Everest View! This place got into the Guinness Book of World Records in 2004 for being the highest hotel ever. From here, you'll get to see Mount Everest and lots of other mountains up close. After taking in all the amazing views, we'll head back down to Monjo village and finally, Lukla to catch our flight back to Kathmandu.

This trek isn't too hard, but it's not super easy either. You'll reach a maximum height of 3,880 meters, which is pretty high! But don't worry, we'll only be walking for about 5 hours each day, so you'll have plenty of time to take breaks and enjoy the scenery. This trek is perfect for anyone who wants to see the beauty of the Everest region but doesn't have a lot of time. And even better, you'll get to do it all in style with some added luxury! Whether you're a beginner or a pro trekker, this trip is sure to give you memories to last a lifetime.
