Overview And Highlights

Everest Panorama Trek in the foothills of Mount Everest to see the snow giant in all its glory. The Everest view trek is suitable for the average walker. This short trek introduces you to the majestic Khumbu region and its rich Sherpa culture.

The highest elevation we reach during the trek is just above 3,800m – which is quite comfortable if you get properly acclimatized at Namche, where you’ll be spending two nights.

Everest Panorama View Trekking Route

The Everest Panorama View trekking starts by taking a morning flight to Lukla. Lukla is a small airport that is the most common starting point for trekkers heading to the Everest region. The trekking route follows the half route of the Everest Base Camp trek up to Tengboche Monastery.

From Lukla, a leisurely walk through several villages and suspension bridges will take you to Phakding. After spending a night in Phakding, you’ll head to Namche and follow a trail that climbs gently up, before ascending a very steep final stretch, to reach Namche Bazaar.

Namche, the trading capital of the Everest region, was once the trading grounds of the “Saltmen of Tibet”. Even today we can see Tibetans selling rugs, clothing, salt, and dried meat in the region.

With karaoke bars, internet cafés, bakeries, shops, even pizzerias, the modern Namche has now become a “tourist ghetto”. It’s very likely that you’ll hear half a dozen languages being spoken around you during your two-day stay in Namche.

Two nights in Namche Bazaar should acclimatize you for a further ascent to Tengboche, which, at 3,867 meters is the highest altitude you’ll be reaching. From Tengboche, you’ll see a wonderful panorama of Mount Everest and it’ll certainly be one of the best experiences of your life.

In Tengboche, you’ll also visit the grand Tengboche monastery, the highest ever place of worship that basks in the solitude of a beautifully scenic valley. The next day, you’ll return to Namche Bazaar and the following day you’ll return to Lukla. The same scenic flight that brought you to Lukla from Kathmandu, awaits you in the tiny airstrip there. The return flight to Kathmandu marks the end of your 7-day Everest Panorama view trekking adventure in Nepal.

Namche, the trading capital of the Khumbu region, was once the trading grounds of the “Saltmen of Tibet”. Even today we can see Tibetans selling rugs, clothing, salt, and dried meat in the region.

Lukla (Tenzing-Hillary airport 2,840m), is a small airport town is the most common starting point for trekkers heading to the Everest region.

The flight from Kathmandu to Lukla is a short but exciting 40-minute journey through the mountains until we reach Tenzing-Hillary Airport. That's where our trek begins. We start by walking down to the Dudh Koshi River and then follow the path to Namche Bazaar.

During the busy months of April/May and October/November, there's another option. We can take a flight from a different airport called Manthali to Lukla, which only takes about 20 minutes. But to catch that flight, we need to leave Kathmandu very early in the morning, around 2 AM, and drive for about 4 hours to reach Manthali airport. This is because there are a lot of people traveling during these months, and the airports can be very busy.

Namche is believed to be one of the best places on earth to see the sun rise and set between the snow-clad Himalayas.

The flight from Lukla to Kathmandu lasts about 40 minutes. But if we're flying from Lukla to Manthali airport, it's much shorter, only about 20 minutes.

When things get busy, flights might change from Lukla to Manthali airport. So if we're taking that route, we'll have to fly from Lukla to Manthali and then drive from Manthali to Kathmandu. That drive takes about 4 to 5 hours, covering a distance of around 130 kilometers.

Additional Information

For the Everest Panorama Trek, you won't need as much heavy-duty gear compared to more strenuous treks like the Everest Base Camp or Three Passes Trek. Here's a list of equipment suitable for the easier Everest Panorama Trek:

Trekking Boots: Opt for comfortable and sturdy hiking boots with good ankle support. While the trails are less challenging, proper footwear is still essential for stability and comfort.

Backpack: Bring a lightweight daypack with a capacity of around 20-30 liters to carry your essentials like water, snacks, extra layers, and camera gear.

Clothing: Pack layers suitable for varying temperatures. Include breathable and moisture-wicking base layers, a fleece or insulated jacket for cooler evenings, and a waterproof and windproof jacket in case of rain or strong winds. Quick-drying trekking pants and moisture-wicking socks are also essential.

Headwear: Protect yourself from the sun with a wide-brimmed hat or cap and sunglasses. A lightweight beanie or hat is useful for cooler mornings and evenings.

Gloves: Lightweight gloves are sufficient for this trek unless you're traveling during the colder months when a slightly warmer pair may be needed.

Sleeping Bag: A lightweight sleeping bag rated for moderate temperatures is usually adequate for teahouse accommodations along the route.

Trekking Poles: While not strictly necessary, trekking poles can provide extra stability and reduce strain on your joints, especially during descents.

Water Bottle: Carry a reusable water bottle to stay hydrated throughout the trek. Water purification tablets or a filtration system can be useful for refilling along the trail.

First Aid Kit: Pack a basic first aid kit with essentials like bandages, blister treatment, pain relievers, antiseptic wipes, and any personal medications.

Sunscreen and Lip Balm: Protect your skin and lips from the sun's rays at higher altitudes with a high SPF sunscreen and moisturizing lip balm.

Personal Toiletries: Bring along essential toiletries such as toothbrush, toothpaste, biodegradable soap, hand sanitizer, and wet wipes for maintaining hygiene during the trek.

Camera: Don't forget to capture the stunning views of Everest and the surrounding peaks. A lightweight camera or smartphone with a good camera will suffice.

Remember to pack light and only bring what you'll need for the trek. With a more relaxed pace and less challenging terrain, the Everest Panorama Trek offers a fantastic opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the Himalayas without the need for heavy-duty gear.

Comfortable Temperatures: Daytime temperatures are moderate and pleasant, creating ideal trekking conditions. Evenings may be cool, but overall, the weather is comfortable for hiking.

Less Crowded Trails: While there may still be some fellow trekkers on the route, it's generally less crowded compared to peak seasons. You'll have more tranquility to soak in the breathtaking scenery.

Consider Other Months trekking in Everest Panorama Trek

December to February (Winter): Trekking is possible but more challenging due to colder temperatures and occasional snowfall. Views may be obscured by clouds and snow.

March to May (Spring): Enjoy blooming rhododendrons and milder temperatures, but be prepared for occasional rainfall and busier trails.

June to September (Monsoon): Heavy rainfall makes trekking difficult and risky, with muddy and slippery trails. It's not recommended to trek during this period due to safety concerns.

For the most rewarding experience on the Everest Panorama Trek, plan your visit during October and November when the weather is at its finest, offering stunning vistas and comfortable trekking conditions.

Seeing Everest from afar was a wonderful experienc ... + See more e and also heard stories from the trekkers that actually went to the base camp. We did not do the base camp because we had only a week but we would definitely consider doing the full trek in the future.
