Everest View Trek is a short 13 day trek primarily focusing on the beautiful views of Everest and the surrounding mountains and a closer look at Sherpa traditions, cultures and values.

Also sometimes called the Everest Panorama Trek, it is easy compared to some of the other trek routes in the region because the maximum altitude you gain in this journey is 3859 m at Tengboche Monastery.

Nevertheless, the journey offers great views of some of the world's highest peaks, including Lhotse, Nuptse, Thamserku, Khantega and Ama Dablam.

Overall, this trek is specially designed for trekkers who don’t want to hike up to the base camp but at the same time also don’t want to miss the breathtaking view of Everest and its surroundings. Further, this journey can also be a great introduction to Sherpa's countryside and culture with panoramic mountain views.

Everest view trek offers the opportunity to visit popular Sherpa villages and monasteries in Lukla, Phakding, Namche, Khumjung and Tengboche.

Our trek starts with a beautiful mountain flight to Lukla, the gateway to the Everest region. From here we pass through the lush rhododendron and pine forests of the Sagarmatha National Park and reach the Namche Bazaar (3440 m). In Namche, a rest day is allocated for acclimatization and further draft preparation.

The next day we trek to the Tengboche Monastery (3860 m), one of the striking places in the Everest region with tons of mountain views. Tengboche is known among photographers as one of the fantastic places to limit yourself to the wonderful appeal of Mt. Everest (8848m), Ama Dablam and their adjacent mountains.

The final viewpoint from the Tengboche monastery justifies the name as Everest view trek.

Mani Rimdu fiesta in the Tengboche monastery is also very special which is on many travelers' wishlist. Likewise, a visit to Syangboche will also provide you the most dazzling view of Everest and dozens of other Khumbu peaks.


Highlights of this Trek

  • Scenic views of some of the world's highest mountains including Everest
  • View diversified flora and fauna of Sagarmatha National Park
  • Introduction and interaction with local Sherpa people along with their unique culture and lifestyle
  • Tengboche monastery which is a significant Buddhist place and also a wonderful Himalayas viewing point
  • Vibrant Mani Rimdu festival in Tengboche monastery during the fall season, fixed according to the Tibetan Lunar calendar

FAQ's

What is the best season for the trek?

Spring (March-May) and Fall (mid-September to October) - both the seasons are really fine to relish the beauty of the trek. While Spring is mostly preferred for Expeditions, trekkers prefer Fall.

Will there be Mani Rimdu festival during my trek?

Mani Rimdu festival usually takes place from mid-Oct to mid-Nov, however, the date has not been announced yet because they follow the Tibetan Lunar calendar. If you want to participate in this festival during your trek, please consult with us or check our special Mani Rimdu festival for more details.

Is it possible to optimize the itinerary?

Yes. We will make sure you travel the way you want to. All you have to do is communicate your need to us and we will make arrangements accordingly.

Will I get altitude sickness?

If well prepared and physically fit it's not that likely. Carelessness, non-hygienic food, dehydration, stress and lack of proper guidance are some of the major factors to AMS. With Himalayan Trekkers, we take care of your well being, so you need not worry about it.

How is any emergency situation handled?

Your safety is our topmost priority and we make sure that you are sound on every step. If by chance anyone gets sick, we will take you to the nearest hospital asap. If the condition is more critical, a rescue helicopter is called & the expenses are covered by the insurance company.

What level of physical fitness is required?

Everest Base camp requires lots of walking. We strongly recommend you to do some physical exercise (activities such as walking, running, swimming or hiking of some kind) to be physically fit at least a couple of months before your trek starting date.

How much cash do I need to carry?

Personal expenses totally depend upon your shopping habits. Accommodation, meals, city tours & all ground and air transport are inclusive in the price as mentioned in the itinerary. You are only liable to pay for additional meals, table drinks, snacks, hot shower (accessible in some places), alcoholic drinks, & meals in the city. Tips to the guides, porter or any other members are not mandatory. You can tip them if you are satisfied with their service.

Will I have to stay in tents?

No. This particular trek does not require camping. All the places on the route have some kind of proper accommodation facilities.

What language will the guide speak in?

The guide will communicate in fluent English. But, if you prefer some other language, we can arrange for that too which would cost a little extra.
