Everest Summit Lodges - Lukla - INTRODUCTION
Lukla, the gateway to Mt. Everest, lies at 2743 m (9,000 ft). Our lodge is most conveniently located directly opposite the airport. Spacious rooms, a lovely sunny garden and traditional interiors make for a very warm welcome to guests arriving in the Khumbu. Excursion to the nearby village of Bom, just below at 9600 ft / 3000m, with a view looking down towards Lukla and the very interesting airport is an option for guests spending their first night in Lukla.
The Nepal Himalaya .... a different approach !
Everest Summit Lodges has redefined trekking and touring in the Nepal Himalaya with eight high-quality lodges. All lodges have been constructed with a strong awareness for protection of the environment, local culture and people. Exceptional locations offer fantastic mountain scenery be it in the Kathmandu Valley, in the heart of the Khumbu or the rugged terrain of Mustang. All keep close to our concept of avoiding crowded trails, yet lie close to the natural beauty of their environment.
All our programs have been tried, tested and highly appreciated by clients from all over the world. Our guides are trained in all safety aspects of trekking and have many years of experience in leading and taking good care of the need of each of our guests. Trek itineraries are well planned to bring you the very best of walking trails and cultural insights along the way. A highlight each trip is the inclusion of an Everest summiter, to share with you his personal grand adventure stories over high tea or at dinner time.
At every lodge, comfortably furnished rooms with ensuite facilities, traditional style and local hospitality await you. Solar-power provides hot and eco-friendly showers, warm electric blankets, while colonially conveniences such as hot water bottles in comfortable beds revitalize you for the next day.
