    Short Yet Rewarding Trek

    While many Himalayan treks demand weeks of commitment, the Everest View Trek, as curated by Luxury Holidays Nepal, has been designed to cater to those who may not have the luxury of extended time or the desire for extreme altitudes. When combined with the historic allure of the Golden Triangle India Tour, the result is a perfectly balanced adventure — one that harmoniously merges natural exploration with cultural immersion.

    Nepal: Everest View Trek

    • Accessible Adventure: The trek initiates from Lukla and makes its way to iconic spots such as Phakding and Namche Bazaar. Although shorter in duration, it doesn't skimp on the richness of the experience, making it a favorite among both novice trekkers and those on tight schedules.

    • Stunning Panoramas: One of the main highlights of this trek is the spectacular view of Mount Everest from the Everest View Hotel. It offers trekkers a chance to feast their eyes on the world's tallest peak without the rigors of high-altitude trekking.

    • Rich Cultural Insights: Despite its shorter duration, the trek beautifully encapsulates the essence of the Sherpa culture. From monasteries to local markets, every step offers a cultural revelation.

    • Diverse Flora and Fauna: The trek traverses through rhododendron forests and offers chances to spot various bird species and possibly some Himalayan wildlife, enriching the overall experience.

    India: Golden Triangle Tour

    The Everest View Trek and Golden Triangle India Tour are a testimony to the fact that duration doesn't necessarily dictate the depth or richness of an experience.

    Best Time for Everest View Trek and Golden Triangle India Tour

    The best time for the Everest View Trek and Golden Triangle India Tour depends largely on the traveler's preferences in terms of weather, crowd density, and the kind of experiences they wish to have. Both Nepal and India offer distinct experiences in every season, and here's a detailed breakdown:

    Spring (March to May)

    • Everest View Trek: Spring is among the most popular seasons for trekking in the Everest region. The weather is moderate, with warmer days and chilly nights. The higher altitude areas remain snow-clad, providing picturesque views. Rhododendron forests bloom in full splendor, adding a splash of color to the trek.
    • Golden Triangle India Tour: Spring sees warm temperatures, especially in May. It's a good time to explore as the days are long and clear, though carrying light cotton wear is advised due to the heat in the afternoons.

    Monsoon (June to August)

    • Everest View Trek: Monsoon is less popular for trekking because of heavy rainfalls, which can lead to landslides in certain areas. However, the landscape becomes incredibly green and lush. It's a time for fewer crowds, making it a serene experience for those willing to brave occasional downpours.
    • Golden Triangle India Tour: Monsoon brings heavy rains, especially in July and August. While it might disrupt outdoor plans occasionally, the landscape is at its greenest, and the historic monuments of Delhi, Jaipur, and Agra are washed and gleaming.

    Autumn (September to November)

    • Everest View Trek: Post-monsoon, the skies clear up, offering some of the best mountain views. The temperatures are cool and comfortable for trekking. Autumn is another peak season for trekking in Nepal due to its clear skies and moderate climate.
    • Golden Triangle India Tour: Considered one of the best times to visit North India, autumn offers pleasant temperatures and minimal rainfall. Festivals like Diwali also fall in this season, adding a cultural dimension to the trip.

    Winter (December to February)

    • Everest View Trek: Winter brings cold temperatures, especially in higher altitudes. However, the trails are less crowded, and the views are still crystal clear. It's suitable for those who are well-prepared for cold weather trekking.
    • Golden Triangle India Tour: Winters are cool and often foggy in the mornings, especially in December and January. This adds a mystical charm to the monuments, especially the Taj Mahal. The days are pleasantly cool, perfect for sightseeing.

    While each season offers its unique flavor to the Everest View Trek and Golden Triangle India Tour, the optimal time for most travelers tends to be during the spring and autumn months, when the weather is most favorable. However, the beauty of this tour lies in its adaptability, offering rich experiences all year round.

    Important Notes on Everest View Trek and Golden Triangle India Tour

    • Altitude Concerns: The Everest View Trek involves trekking at higher altitudes. It's vital to be aware of the symptoms of altitude sickness and always communicate any discomfort to your guide. Acclimatization days are built into the itinerary to help cope with the altitude.

    • Travel Insurance: Ensure you have comprehensive travel insurance that covers high-altitude trekking in Nepal and general travel within India. This insurance should also include emergency evacuation and medical treatment.

    • Visa Requirements: Travelers need a visa for both Nepal and India. While Nepal offers visas on arrival for most nationalities at Tribhuwan International Airport, it's advised to obtain an Indian visa in advance.

    • Packing: Given the diverse nature of this tour, packing can be a bit challenging. Layered clothing is essential for the Everest trek, while lighter clothing is suitable for India. Don't forget essentials like trekking boots, rain gear, and sun protection.

    • Cultural Sensitivity: Both Nepal and India have rich cultural traditions. When visiting temples or religious sites, dress modestly. It's also good practice to ask for permission before taking photographs of people.

    • Health Precautions: It's advisable to consult with a doctor before the trip, especially if trekking is a new activity for you. Also, consider getting vaccinated for common diseases prevalent in the region.

    • Stay Hydrated: Especially during the trek, drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. This not only helps with trekking endurance but also aids in altitude sickness prevention.

    • Local Currency: While major cities in India and Kathmandu offer plenty of ATMs, it's essential to carry sufficient local currency during the trek as there are limited or no ATM facilities in the Everest region.

    • Tipping: Tipping is customary in both Nepal and India for services like guiding, driving, and dining. Always carry some small bills for this purpose.

    • Safety: While both Nepal and India are generally safe for travelers, it's essential to be aware of your surroundings, especially in crowded places. Keep your belongings secure and avoid isolated areas after dark.

    • Itinerary Flexibility: Weather in the Himalayas can be unpredictable. Flights to and from Lukla are especially prone to delays due to weather conditions. It's crucial to have some flexibility in your travel plans.

    • Stay Connected: SIM cards with data plans are readily available in Kathmandu and major Indian cities. Connectivity during the Everest trek can be sporadic. Consider informing family and friends about potential communication gaps during your trek.

    • Local Etiquette: Remember always to use your right hand when eating or giving and receiving items in both Nepal and India, as the left hand is considered unclean in many cultural contexts.

    By paying heed to these notes, travelers can ensure a smooth and enriching experience during the Everest View Trek and Golden Triangle India Tour. While it's a journey of diverse landscapes and cultures, a little preparation goes a long way in making the trip memorable.

    Nepal Visa

    Transportation on Journey

    Navigating through the towering peaks of Nepal and the historic cities of India requires a blend of different modes of transportation. Each chosen means not only facilitates movement but also accentuates the overall travel experience. Here's a rundown of the transportation you can expect on the Everest View Trek and Golden Triangle India Tour:

    Everest View Trek (Nepal)

    • Flights: The journey starts with a scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, which offers travelers their first glimpse of the mighty Himalayas. The Tenzing-Hillary Airport in Lukla is one of the most thrilling airports in the world due to its short runway and mountainous location.

    • Trekking: Post the flight, the primary mode of transportation is on foot. Trekkers will walk along trails that weave through the heart of the Khumbu region, passing through picturesque villages, crossing suspension bridges, and enjoying panoramic mountain views.

    Golden Triangle (India)

    • Private Vehicle: Throughout the Indian leg of the tour, travelers will be transported via private vehicles. This ensures a comfortable, flexible, and hassle-free journey. Expect well-maintained cars or minibusses, depending on the group size, for drives between Delhi, Jaipur, and Agra.

    Being prepared for the digital aspect of your journey ensures that you remain connected, and informed, and can share the mesmerizing vistas of the Himalayas and the rich tapestry of Indian culture with your friends and family in real-time.


    Understanding the local currency and having a clear idea about the exchange rates, modes of transactions, and where to get money exchanged can greatly enhance the ease of your travel. Here's what you need to know about currency in both Nepal and India:

    Everest View Trek (Nepal)

    • Local Currency: The official currency of Nepal is the Nepalese Rupee, often denoted as NPR or symbolically as रू.

    • ATMs: Kathmandu, being the capital, has a plethora of ATMs. However, once you start your trek in the Everest region, ATMs are scarce. It's advisable to withdraw the necessary cash in Kathmandu.

    • Currency Exchange: Money exchange counters are abundant in the tourist areas of Kathmandu like Thamel. They generally offer a better exchange rate than hotels and airports. Always ask for a receipt when you exchange money.

    • Card Payments: In Kathmandu, many hotels, restaurants, and shops accept credit and debit cards. However, once on the trek, transactions are mostly cash-based.

    Golden Triangle (India)

    • Local Currency: The official currency of India is the Indian Rupee, denoted as INR or symbolically as ₹.

    • ATMs: Delhi, Jaipur, and Agra are major cities with an extensive network of ATMs. It's easy to withdraw cash using international debit or credit cards.

    • Currency Exchange: Major international airports in India have currency exchange counters. For better rates, consider using authorized currency exchange outlets in the city. Again, always retain the receipt of your transaction.

    • Card Payments: Credit and debit cards are widely accepted in these cities. Hotels, major shops, and restaurants will usually have card payment facilities. However, small vendors, rickshaw drivers, and street markets generally deal in cash.

    General Tips

    • Carrying Cash: Especially during the trek in Nepal, ensure you have enough cash for your daily expenses as card facilities might be unavailable. In India's cities, while cards are more readily accepted, it's always a good idea to have some cash on hand for smaller purchases.

    • Alert your Bank: Before traveling, inform your bank about your travel dates and destination to avoid any unexpected card blockages due to suspicious international activity.
    • Local Prices: Familiarize yourself with local prices for common goods and services. This helps in ensuring you're not overcharged and aids in budgeting.

    By being informed about the currency and transaction norms of Nepal and India, you can navigate your Everest View Trek and Golden Triangle India Tour more smoothly, focusing on the experiences rather than financial logistics.

    Drinking Water

    Staying hydrated during your travels is crucial. The quality and accessibility of potable water can vary between destinations. Here's what you need to know about drinking water during the Everest View Trek and the Golden Triangle India Tour:

    Everest View Trek (Nepal)

    • Tap Water: The tap water in Nepal, including the Everest region, is not safe for direct consumption. It may contain pathogens that can lead to waterborne diseases.

    • Purification Tablets and Drops: Many trekkers use water purification tablets or drops to treat tap water. They are readily available in Kathmandu's trekking stores.

    • Bottled Water: While bottled water is available for purchase in teahouses and lodges throughout the Everest trek, its cost increases with altitude. It's also worth noting that mountain regions face challenges in plastic waste management, so minimizing plastic use can be beneficial for the environment.

    • Refill Stations: There are some safe water refill stations along the trekking route where you can fill up your reusable bottle for a fee.

    • Boiled Water: Most teahouses will provide boiled water for a fee. Boiling is one of the most effective ways to make water safe for drinking.

    Golden Triangle (India)

    • Tap Water: The tap water in the cities of the Golden Triangle (Delhi, Jaipur, and Agra) is generally not recommended for drinking without prior treatment, especially for tourists not accustomed to local water.

    • Bottled Water: It's the most convenient option for tourists. When buying bottled water, ensure that the seal is intact to avoid counterfeit or refilled bottles.

    • Water Filters and Purifiers: Some travelers carry portable water filters or purifiers to treat tap water.

    • Hotels and Restaurants: Reputable hotels and restaurants usually provide purified water, but it's always good to ask and confirm.

    General Tips

    • Reusable Bottles: Carrying a good quality reusable water bottle is advisable. It not only reduces plastic waste but also ensures you have water on hand when needed.

    • Hydration Packs: Especially during the Everest trek, hydration packs can be handy as they allow you to sip water without stopping.

    • Avoid Ice: When drinking beverages, especially outside of reputable establishments, it's a good idea to avoid ice as it might have been made using untreated water.

    • Hot Beverages: Opting for hot beverages like tea or coffee can be a safer choice, especially in areas where water quality is questionable.

    • Stay Hydrated: Particularly during treks, the body loses more water due to exertion. Ensure you drink enough to stay adequately hydrated.

    With careful attention to where you source your drinking water and by taking necessary precautions, you can ensure that hydration concerns don't hamper your Everest View Trek and Golden Triangle India Tour experience.

    Everest View Trek (Nepal)

    • Kathmandu: At approximately 1,400 meters (4,600 feet) above sea level, Kathmandu is relatively moderate in altitude. While acclimatization is not typically a concern here, it's the starting point for your trek.

    • Phakding: Your first trekking destination, Phakding, is at about 2,610 meters (8,563 feet), which is slightly lower than Lukla.

    • Namche Bazaar: This is a significant altitude step-up, reaching 3,440 meters (11,286 feet). This is the place where many trekkers notice the thinning of the air and might experience mild symptoms of altitude sickness.

    • Everest View Hotel: This is one of the higher points in your trek at approximately 3,880 meters (12,730 feet). While it doesn’t reach the extremely high altitudes of deeper Everest treks, it's essential to monitor any symptoms of altitude sickness here.

    Golden Triangle (India)

    • Delhi: The capital city of India is at an average altitude of 216 meters (709 feet) above sea level. Altitude is not a concern here.

    Tipping is a customary way to show appreciation for services rendered in many parts of the world, and both Nepal and India are no exception. However, it's essential to understand the nuances of tipping in these regions to ensure you're offering an appropriate amount and following local customs. Here are some guidelines for tipping during the Everest View Trek and Golden Triangle India Tour without mentioning specific cash amounts:

    Everest View Trek (Nepal)

    Trekking Guide: It is customary to tip your trekking guide at the end of the trek. The amount you choose to give should reflect the quality of service provided, the length of the trek, and the group's size. Generally, a more significant tip is given for longer treks and if the guide has offered exceptional service.

    Porters: The porters play an essential role in making your trekking experience smooth by carrying your heavy loads. Their tip should be less than the guide but still a reflection of their hard work and the number of days they assisted you.

    Tour Guide: For each city or monument you visit, you might be assigned a local guide. If you're satisfied with their service, offering a tip is a kind gesture.

    Drivers: Whether it's the driver for your entire journey or rickshaw and tuk-tuk drivers for short rides, a tip, especially for safe and courteous driving, is appreciated.

    General Tips on Tipping

    • Always give tips personally to the intended recipient.
    • While tipping, consider placing the amount in an envelope or folding it in your hand for discretion.
    • Group travelers often find it helpful to create a "tip pool," with each member contributing an equal amount. The collected sum can then be distributed among service providers.
    • Observe the reactions and listen to local advice; sometimes, overtipping can be just as awkward as undertipping.

    Remember, tipping is always discretionary. It's a way to show appreciation for good service but should be based on your level of satisfaction and understanding of local customs.
