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.
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.
After your arrival in Kathmandu, our representatives at the airport will transfer you to your hotel and help you with checking in.
The flight from Kathmandu to Lukla is 40 minutes of pure mountain experience until we reach the Tenzing-Hillary Airport. Our trek begins in Lukla as we descend towards the Dudh Koshi River before following the trail leading to Namche Bazaar.
The trek to Namche Bazar is a steep climb through forests of rhododendron around the Sagarmatha National Park. After crossing several suspension bridges and four hours of walking we reach the Sherpa market of Namche Bazaar.
Two days of rest in Namche Bazaar helps us in acclimatization and prepares us for our journey ahead. Namche, the trading capital of the Khumbu region was once the trading grounds of Tibetan Salt. Even today we can see Tibetans selling rugs, clothing, salt and dried meat in the region. Namche is believed to be one of the best places on earth to see the sun rise and set between the snow-clad Himalayas.
From Namche, we follow the trail towards the national park headquarters. Soon the route to Tengboche becomes visible above Namche and we see the famous Tengboche monastery surrounded by the majestic Himalayan peaks.
The trail now descends to Namche Bazaar which offers superb views of Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, and Kwangde peaks. We stay overnight at Namche, a perfect place to celebrate the success of our two-week trek.
On our way back, we cross suspension bridges over the Dudh Koshi River, make our way through steep descends and walk past numerous tea houses before finally arriving at Lukla.
Again, 40 minutes of pure mountain experience on our flight to Kathmandu marks the end of our journey.
Today, you have time till your departure from Kathmandu and can visit the historical city of Kathmandu and tourist places in Thamel.
Note: Above holiday itinerary can be customized as our guest specific requirements and can make shorter and longer. We design your holidays accordingly.
Water: Mineral waters are available at all stops during tea house treks (paying your own). You can also use tap water if you choose to use water purification tablets.
Medical support: An emergency first aid kit is carried by the support staff at all times.
Food on tea house trek: During tea house treks our guests pay for their own food (breakfast/lunch/dinner) at the lodge. It can be about USD $25 each day per person. You can choose your own meal as a menu for every tea house.
Travel Insurance is mandatory for all clients who choose to trek or climb with us. The insurance should cover you in case of emergencies like accidents, altitude sickness, and ambulance and helicopter rescue charges if required. Please carry a copy of your insurance papers while traveling in Nepal and do send us a copy as well. This will help us in making all the necessary arrangements in case of any sort of emergencies.
Below is a checklist of equipment that we advise people have with them when visiting Nepal. This is a guideline only and will depend on the type of trip you are undertaking.
While we always suggest bringing your most important equipment from home, it is possible to buy or rent equipment in Kathmandu where almost all products and major brands are available, often at cheaper rates than you might find at home.
This equipment listed is prepared by our long experiences in trekking. During the treks, our porters can carry approximately 20kg in total while we recommend that any trekker carries their own day-pack that weighs between 8-12kgs which would include a camera, snacks, and drinking water for easy access.
We had a really great time in Nepal, we saw so many nice things.
The trek was great with a very competent guide! Everything was well organized, we had good food, good beds, and the sleeping bags were really useful!
Impressive landscapes, beautiful nature and in the final day in Tenboche with the monastery, the monks, Sagarmatha, the sun rise: breathtaking! ?
Our guide, Bil was very helpful, and could nearly answer all our questions. And we learned a really diverting Nepalese card game: very entertaining!
Thank for all of that Nir!
And last but not least, thanks to Shambhu for the nice visits in Unesco World Heritage Kathmandu.
We for sure want to do again, and come to Nepal, but then for a longer time than just one week!
