Trip Overview

“A trip to the Everest Region showing us how beautiful natural Nepal is”

Everest View Trek, majorly known as the Everest Panorama Trek, is a shorter yet satisfying trek to the Himalayas. Get high above the ground and get hand in hand with the Tibetan influenced culture and tradition of the Sherpa people, the major inhabitants of the Himalayas of Nepal.

Our climbs up and down the green valley quickly turn into a dry and snowy walk as we gain altitude. Hike along the Dudh Koshi river through the rhododendron forests to arrive at our destination. Along the way, we will encounter prayer flags, Mani encrypted walls, and some of the alpine flora and fauna. Our trek officially starts after a scenic flight to the Tenzing and Hilary Airport at Lukla. Then, same as the other trekking packages to the EBC, we will hike all the way through Phakding, Monjo and other villages to arrive at the Namche Bazaar. We will have a total of 9 days at our disposal where we will climb up to the village of Tengboche and get back down to Lukla for our departure to the Kathmandu Valley. With our walk to the Khumbu Region, we will unfold the curtains to show you the heavenly beauty of this region.

Join us for this 9 days hiking expedition to challenge your limits and explore the beautiful scenery of the Everest Region. A moderate fitness level with the energy to walk for 5-6 hours is required for this trek. Contact us in case of professional expertise and a tailored trip.
