Trekkers' Safety and Security
Everest Base Camp Luxury Lodge Trek guarantees your 100% safe and sound trekking experience. Medical attention, helicopter evacuation, hygienic meals, safe drinking water, and 24/7 support throughout the trek ensure your utmost safety.
The Kathmandu Lukla flight is also safe and sound. If you feel scared of taking a flight, you can also take Kathmandu to Lukla Helicopter Flight to make the flight experience further adventurous.
Guides and Porters' safety
A trip can never be successful if the trek guides and porters are not secured. To secure your travel, Sublime Trails ensures the utmost safety and security of the principles and porters.
We employ guides who are in perfect physical shape. Also, we only use trek guides who have been to Everest for years. Directions come with health insurance and also get immediate rescue in emergencies.
Your life may depend on having proof of travel insurance during an emergency helicopter rescue. Altitude sickness may make hikers quite unwell at particular occasions. As a last resort, a helicopter evacuation may be your best option.
When you're at a high altitude, having good travel insurance that covers your medical expenses and helicopter evacuation is important. Additionally, if you can show confirmation of travel insurance, helicopter firms will dispatch helicopters on time.
Flight delays and transportation
Flight delays to Lukla can happen on an average day due to sudden changes in weather in Lukla or by increased air traffic in Kathmandu. Everest Luxury Lodge Trek departs mainly in Spring and Autumn. Hence, these months are the best time known for clear weather and stable temperature.
Flight cancellation barely happens during these months. However, we recommend you plan your trip duration to cope with the possible flight delays.
Baggage and weight limit
The two-week Everest Luxury Lodge trek takes place in the Everest area. Therefore, it would be helpful if you brought a good backpack for the excursion.
Having said that, avoid packing extra items in the backpack since doing so would just add to its weight. You must now hire an additional trek porter to carry your gear. When you purchase this package from us, we only send one porter for every two trekkers, and a porter's maximum combined weight is 30 kg. If you can keep the weight under 15 kg, it will be okay.
In a similar vein, airlines only permit 15kg per passenger. As a result, you will be charged more if the weight exceeds 15 kilos.
Trekking gears for Everest Base Camp Luxury Lodge Trek
Wearable gear is necessary for chilly nights and day excursions on Everest Base Camp Luxury Lodge Trek. For day excursions, fleeces, wind- and rain-resistant jackets, and thin sleeves are useful. A scarf and hat can protect the face from sunlight and frigid winds. In case of rain, it could be a good idea to carry a poncho. If not, a day hike won't require warm clothes.
The best hiking footwear gives the maximum level of comfort on your day journey. Your legs won't be put under a lot of stress if you have proper hiking shoes. Trekking poles will also make it easier for you to climb and descend the trek route.
In the morning and evening, the temperature at high altitudes drops to slightly below freezing. The typical nightly temperature is around -7 degrees in the spring and fall. Wearing thick layers of clothes is therefore necessary. Three-layered down jackets, wool hoodies, sweaters, thermal coats, and pants are all necessary items of clothing. Woollen gloves, neck warmers, and caps are also necessary. The best sleeping bags for overnight usage are multi-layered and zippered. When choosing a sleeping bag, look for ones designed for high-altitude camping.
Tips for trek guides and porters
Every trek guide and porter deserves a good tip at the end of the Everest Luxury Lodge Trek. We recommend you tip at least 10% of the trip cost as a tip to the porter and trek guides.
Some trekkers even offer happy meals and leave their trekking gear to encourage the guides to keep working and delivering the best service.
