Everest View Trekking
Everest view (Panorama) trek is a short classic trek to the Everest, ideal for those not willing to walk all the way to Everest base camp or those not having longer holiday. This trek offers classic, close views of Everest and other Khumbu mountains as well as cultural insight on the lives of the legendary Sherpas of the Everest region. Everest Panorama itinerary is creatively designed to capture Nepal's beauty, people & culture in the shortest period of time. The trek to the Everest region is one of our most rewarding journeys! Nepal is a country of friendly people, beautiful scenery, and a large variety of cultural traditions. This blend of outdoor adventure and cultural exploration is a great way to experience the Himalayan Mountains. To give you a look into the heart of the villages of these people we offer an exceptional 8 days trek featuring a wide range of spectacular scenery combined with unique cultural encounters with the kindhearted Sherpa people who inhabit these high altitude regions.
Everest view (Panorama) trek takes us straight into the heart of the Khumbu with the short flight to Lukla. We soon enter Sagarmatha National Park and trek toward Namche Bazaar where we have time to visit the Sherpa museum and watch the sunset on Mt Everest and the Lhotse/Nuptse wall. We spend a night at Tengboche to enjoy the 360' mountain panorama and visit the monastery where we may be lucky enough to witness a ceremony. From here we descend to the picturesque villages of Khumjung and Thame. The ancient gompa at Khumjung contains some grotesque masks of demons and you can be shown the fabled yeti scalp. Visiting a succession of Sherpa villages, surrounded by fluttering prayer flags and glistening snow-capped peaks, the popular myth of 'Shangri La' will seem all-too-real. On our return to Kathmandu, there is the option of taking an early morning 'Everest Flight' for a dramatic finale. Suitable for any weekend hiker, this short trek offers an excellent introduction to the delights of trekking in the Himalayas, including those all-important views of Mount Everest.
