Everest View Trek, also known as Everest Panorama Trek, is possibly the shortest and the most basic trek in the Khumbu region. It lasts for only 7 days, yet, it covers the most significant places in the Everest Base Camp Trek route. A shorter Everest View 4 days trekking version is also opted by many. However, we realized that it requires a minimum of 7 days to go to and forth this trekking route comfortably.

Everest Panorama View Trek is the best option for anyone who’s trekking for the first time and isn’t yet ready for extreme altitude, weather, and terrain. This trek will not take you as close to the Everest Base Camp, however, it will give you the chills and the feels experienced by any trekker going up to that altitude.

Overview of Everest view trek

This trek follows the route that lasts only for a duration of 7 days. Like another trek in the region, it starts with a flight to Lukla, and on the same day, a small 2-3 hours trek to Phakding. The most wonderful thing about trekking in this region is that you’ll always find yourself close to nature, with the most amazing sceneries and landscapes.

As days pass, you’ll find yourself in wonderful settlements like Namche Bazaar. Both of these places are known for their people, with a unique culture and lifestyle. The modernity of Namche Bazaar is sure to surprise you, with all the amenities and western food. It’ll be hard for you to believe that you’re in the hills.

The villages on the route offer up-close panoramic views of peaks like Mt. Everest, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Thamserku, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Ama Dablam and so on. These are few of the very crucial features that make this trek one of the most exciting trips in the region, offering great experiences to the trekkers.

You are sure to be amazed by the rich flora and fauna of the region, as the trekking route is a part of Sagarmatha National Park. The path will offer you amazing sceneries of the hills, covered with the beautiful trees of Rhododendron, Birch, and Juniper, and Dudhkoshi river flowing at its base, with water as white as milk.

For those of you who’re skeptical about whether you’d be able to adjust and keep up at such a high altitude, still want to taste Everest up-close, this is the trek for you. The villages and settlement areas that you’d come across in terms of walking on the trail are fortunately few of the most culturally significant ones. Plus the natural phenomenon! This is indeed a really amazing trek!

And like it’s mentioned above, if you’re comfortable with extending the duration of the trek, you could go on side trips, and visit the villages surrounding the main trail and also the Everest Three Pass Trek. would also be great for you. Or, you could go higher to see how much you could take as a trekker! Best of luck!

It is very easy to book the trip with us. At first, we need your Passport photocopy to book everything here for you. And once we got 20% of the total cost in advance through bank or Money transfer then we will confirm your trip with us. A flight detail is optional but you have to provide before 1 week of arrival to pick up.

Category: All Trek

You can get all kind of food. You have different choices but personally, I would like to say to eat that local food or our designated food because it prevents you from high altitude sickness.

Category: All Trek

It is hard to say that you will have altitude sickness or not because everyone’s body reacts to the altitude differently. In general, most of the trekkers have suffered from normal altitude problem during trek but if anyone highly suppers from altitude problem we manage Helicopter rescue. So be sure before starts trek that your insurance cover Helicopter rescue as well. Otherwise, you have to pay extra for a Helicopter rescue.

Category: All Trek

Yes! The Lukla airport is one of the dangerous airports in the world. The runway is tiny and built on a slope with a mountain at one end and a huge drop into a valley at the other..,

Category: All Trek

Yes! You can buy a SIM card (Ncell) in Kathmandu before starts trek but the 3G only really works the first and last couples of days of the trek. But you know you could buy wi-fi cards at tea houses which cost 3-6$ for 200mb and the signal is medium.

Category: All Trek

Normally we operate this trek around a year but Sept-Nov and Feb-May is a suggested time for trek.

Category: All Trek

Mainly you have to be fit physically and mentally for this trek. I already mentioned above about physical conditions. Normally you have to walk 4-6 hrs per day so you have to prepare your body and mind that you can walk 4-6 hrs per days. Besides this, you have to care what kind of guide and which company you are following because your guide is a doctor in Mountain and company is a hospital.

In my experience, I would like to say you need to have an average level of fitness, but no means need to be an athlete. It is a completely different world being that high up and everyone’s body reacts to the altitude differently. Simple training before you go.

-Daypack (25–35 liters), Pack cover, Sleeping bag (depending upon the season, weather forecast and personal preference) and it is possible to rent it from Kathmandu which cost 2$ per day.

-Hiking boots, Camp shoes (down booties or running shoes) LED headlamp with extra battery, trekking poles. Camelback water bladder or sipper (water bottle).

-Chocolates, Energy bar, Dry fruits, ORS. Down jacket cover comfortable too -15 • c which you can hire or buy in Kathmandu and cost will be cheap for you to compare your country and another normal jacket. T-shirt, goggles (UV protected) and 5 pair thermal pants and cap for sun cover, Waterproof gloves, woolen gloves, and socks. Sunscreen, moisturizer, lip balm and sanitizer handy.
