Private vehicle, Flight from Kathmandu-Lukla-Kathmandu
Oct - Dec & Feb - Apr.
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.
