Everest Base Camp Yoga Trek

Duration: 16 Days   |  1 Reviews

Everest Base Camp Yoga Trek because who wouldn’t want to live the spiritual experience of yoga sessions in the Everest region? The Everest Base Camp trek in itself is a glorious experience, adding a daily yoga session makes the experience almost enlightening. Adventure Club Trek offers Everest Base Camp Yoga Trek-16 Days Retreat in the company of an accomplished and experienced Yoga Guru. The first day of the trek is scheduled for your arrival in Kathmandu. The next day, we take a sightseeing tour of Kathmandu and organize a pre-trip meeting. The sightseeing gives you a better understanding of Nepalese culture.

Our Everest Base Camp Yoga trek officially starts on the 3rd day with an early morning flight to Tenzing Hillary airport in Lukla. The more or less 35 minute-long flight on a twin otter plane is scenic beyond words; you are flying above some of the world’s highest mountains after all.

We start every day of the trek with a relaxing and healing yoga session with our Guru. Our first yoga session with Mt. Everest in view will be at Namche Bazaar, the hub of Khumbu region. So we’ll make that two sessions as we will be acclimatizing at Namche Bazaar. The trek to Everest Base Camp is magnificent. The views of numerous mountains over 8,000m, Sherpa culture, customs and traditions, sightings of endangered animals like the snow leopard, hospitable locals, stunning landscape and the list goes on, make this trek one of the absolute best in the world.

But, what makes Everest Base Camp Yoga Trek so unique is that it is a healing experience apart from being an adventure. Each day is more scenic than the other and thus makes for a beautiful yoga session setting. A yoga session in Tengboche with the Tengboche Monastery and Mt. AmaDablam in view is soul uplifting kind of experience. Our next stop after Tengboche is Dingboche. Since we would now be a well-above 4,000m mark, we will acclimatize in Dingboche. That means morning yoga session with incredible mountains views, including of Mt. Everest!

We set foot on Everest Base Camp at 5,364m on the 10th Day of the trek (8th day of actual walking). Due to the altitude, we might not be able to do a complete yoga set at Everest Base Camp, but you can still strike a few poses. Enjoy the views of Mt. Nuptse (7,861m), Mt. Pumori (7,161m) and Khumbutse (6,636m) among a plethora of other mountains. You can also closely observe the massive Khumbu icefall. However, you cannot see Mt. Everest from its base camp as it is too huge with a flat top to be seen from its foot. For crystal clear and close views of Mt. Everest and other mountains like Lhotse, Makalu and Cho Yu among others in the Khumbu region, we trek to Kala Patthar. Also, for some exclusive yoga session setting, of course!

Kala Patthar is a black rock ridge and one of the two best vantage points in the Khumbu region, the other one being Gokyo Ri. Once we summit Kala Patthar, we descend to Pheriche. From Pheriche, we climb down to Namche Bazar the next day and from Namche to Lukla the day after. We take a flight from Lukla to Kathmandu marking the end of this amazing.

    Treat you like family!

    Rating:

    I trekked with Adventure Club through a collaboration with 180 Retreats which added Yoga and Meditation to the daily trekking, and it was an amazing experience. 
    The guides on our trek were knowledgable, kind, smart, funny and easy going. Everyone treated us like we were part of one big family. I never heard anyone complain, I just saw sweet smiles on their faces. 
    I felt so safe with this trekking group, I plan on sending my kids (when they are older) because I would trust Adventure Club's care of my most precious gift. 
    Can't say enough good things! Go!


     

Kathmandu to Lukla Flight Delays

The unpredictability of the weather in mountain areas directly affects the flights to and from Lukla. The Twin Otter planes that are used for transport from and to Lukla are reasonably reliable in good weather conditions. But, the flights may be delayed or canceled due to technical problems and extreme weather conditions.To ensure you stay on your schedule in case the Twin Otter flight cancels or delays too far, we can charter you a helicopter. While the helicopter can fly at the visibility of 15,000m, the Twin Otters require 5,000m visibility, according to Nepal Civil Aviation rules.

You can pay for the helicopter in US cash, credit cards or traveler’ cheques directly to our Kathmandu office. We provide a receipt for the payment which you can present to claim the amount back from your travel insurance company. Helicopter charges range from a minimum of US$500 to a maximum of US$3500. Also, we recommend you land in Kathmandu a day before we start the trek. You have enough time to buy trekking gears and beat off the jet lag. Having a few days extra left after your trek is also an excellent way to ensure you don’t miss your international flight in case of difficulties during the trek which might lengthen your trip. It also gives you a way to beat the flight cancellation to or from Lukla in case of severe weather.

Note: Your safety is of the utmost concern whilst you are traveling with Adventure Club Trek. We will make every effort possible to follow the original itinerary but we reserve the right to change that itinerary if a segment of it becomes a safety issue. Certain mountain regions are remote, natural disasters can happen, weather conditions can decline and there can be illness or an injury. To avoid dangerous situations we may occasionally have to make changes to the itinerary to ensure everyone’s safety. That having been said, Adventure Club Trek will strive to provide you with the best possible trekking experience and to keep your safety our number one priority. In case, the flight delay/cancellation happens at the start of the trip and it goes so long that it disturbs your onward travel schedule, you are free to choose an alternative trip: such a trek in the Annapurna,Langtang, or any other regions.

Pre-Trip Meeting

Prior to all the treks and expeditions, Adventure Club Trek hosts a pre-trip meeting in Kathmandu. The primary purpose of the meeting is to provide an opportunity for individuals to ask questions about the forthcoming trek and to introduce other team members. The meeting covers topics as diverse as personal equipment and acclimatization and usually involves a hike and some skills training. Pre-trip meeting is very important in order to have a better preparation of the trekking.
