Everest Summit Lodges – Everest region
Adventure doesn’t have to mean discomfort, as these luxury mountain lodges prove. This network of eight lodges have all the home comforts you could expect, but are within striking distance of the Himalayan foothills and command excellent views of Everest, among other peaks.
The Everest region is located in the northeast of Nepal. The 10-day walk through the middle hills of Solu to the higher altitudes of Khumbu to the base of Sagarmatha, or Mt. Everest, the world’s highest peak, is an opportunity to observe and participate in the daily life of the legendary Sherpa people. The prime attraction – the 8,848 m peak of Mt. Everest – lies in Sagarmatha National Park, which is also home to two other eight thousanders – Lhotse and Cho Oyu – besides several other prominent peaks above 6,000 m.
