How difficult is Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek?
The Luxury Everest base camp trek sounds luxurious but it is in terms of accommodation only. The difficulty level of the trekking will be the same as the regular trekking adventure in the region. As a multi-day and high-altitude trekking adventure, it is a fairly challenging trek that demands good physical fitness.
Although a challenging trekking adventure, it is not an extremely difficult trek to accomplish. People of any age group with a good fitness level can do it. You just need to have strong willpower. However, you will need to have the sound physical fitness to accomplish the adventure successfully.
The difficulty level will go up as you gain elevation as your reach closer to the base camp. Your walking pace will be slower and you will find the oxygen level thinning as you reach the higher altitudes. The increasing elevation and scant oxygen level will make the trek more challenging. But the situation is certainly bearable with minimum effort.
But the good thing is the luxury accommodation with delicious foods to relish after a tiring day of trekking. You will get to enjoy a great sleep at luxury lodges after each day of the trek.
This is certainly going to be an adventure of a lifetime. Let us know if you want to know more about the adventure.
