Our Everest View Trekking is the perfect trek for those who want to see Mount Everest (8848m), but might not have the time or desire to make it all the way to Everest Base Camp. Not only will you see Mount Everest, but you’ll also get panorama views of several more of the tallest mountains in the world. The beautiful views of Lhotse (8516m), Lhotse Shar (8393m), AmaDablam (6812m) and other peaks can be seen during the trek. It’s an easy and sweet trek into the Khumbu region that leaves you exposed to breathtaking views of Everest region peaks.  Also, you’ll get some insight into the fascinating Sherpa culture.

The Everest view trek kicks off in Lukla, after a quick scenic flight from Kathmandu domestic airport. You begin by walking through the lush alpine forests and soon cross the suspension bridge over the Dudh Koshi River. Here, we enter Sagarmatha National Park.  On the way to Namche Bazaar, you walk through the rhododendron (Nepal’s national flower!) and pine forests. Namche Bazaar is the tourism and trading hub of the region.  We take an extra day here so our bodies can adjust to the altitude, which also makes for a fun day of exploration. The Tengboche Monastery (3870m) is the final destination of this trek.

Many mountaineers come here to receive final blessings before attempting to climb to Everest’s summit.  It's an important spiritual and cultural place ( UNESCO World Heritage site, too!). In this trek, you will not only be able to experience spectacular mountain views, but you will also get an opportunity to share the experiences with the legendary Sherpa people and take part in their traditional lifestyle. Included in the itinerary is a hike to Khumjung, where you can feast your eyes on an alleged Yeti scalp. The route coincides with the route to Everest Base Camp.  Retracing our steps back to Lukla, we end the journey and fly back to Kathmandu.

Trekking is possible throughout the year, but Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November) provide the best weather.  During the Spring, there is a bit more color and the rhododendrons are blooming, and in the Autumn months, the skies are generally clearer.  The Everest Panorama Trek requires fitness and acclimatization to avoid acute mountain sickness. Rugged Trails Nepal arranges the trek with complete management. Please, feel free to contact us for more detailed information.

What makes this tour very interesting

Namche Bazaar: Namche Bazaar is popular with trekkers. It is mostly used for altitude acclimatization where people stay for a night or two to acclimatize themselves to the thinning oxygen levels in the air. This is also a getaway to most of the treks to Base Camp and other Expedition in this area. The town has a number of lodgings and store catering to the needs of visitors as well as a number of internet cafes, making it on few places in the region where trekkers can access the internet.

Khumjung Village: Khumjung village is located in the Khumbu region of Sagarmatha National Park, a world heritage site. It lies at the elevation of 3970m above sea level and situation near Mt. Khumbila. A monastery in Khumjung also has a Yeti scalp and is one of the attractions in this village. With communication such as the internet and mobiles available, this village is one of the main attractions in this region.

  • The bustling and colorful markets in Namche Bazaar
  • The jaw-dropping views of Mt. Everest, AmaDablam, Lhotse, and many other peaks
  • See the world-class mountaineers preparing for their Everest ascent
  • Experience the culture, hospitality, and day-to-day lifestyle of the Sherpa ethnic group
  • Mani Rimdu festival in October/November. If you have the opportunity, come! It is the most important holiday for the Sherpa people

Short Everest View Tour

The aim of our Nepal journey was to appreciate the nature, to purify our mind and to go back to ourselves, which could not be measured by material gain. Moreover, we should avoid creating aversion when things did not meet our expectation. I strongly believe ...
