There’s no need to rough it in Nepal. Top-end accommodation includes luxury jungle lodges, converted traditional mansions and wonderful rural retreats, all offering organic food and spa treatments. If you demand a bit of luxury on your trek and don’t want to rough it in a tent, several companies offer deluxe lodges in the Annapurna and Everest regions. You’ll get the best rates on an organised trek (as opposed to turning up on your own). There is a good selection of luxury lodges in the lower reaches of the Everest region, allowing you to make a week-long trek to Namche Bazaar and around. Priority is given to guests on these company’s treks but independent trekkers can also make bookings. In the main traveller towns, Kathmandu has comfortable hotels and delicious meals to spare, and lakeside Pokhara also offers luxurious places to sleep.
