Short Everest View Trek

A trek that makes the most of the time you have available without comprising on the beauty of this region. This s a short but very picturesque trek that offers truly magnificent views of the world’s highest peaks: Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Thamserku, Ama Dablam, and other many snow-covered soaring peaks.

We begin from Kathmandu and fly to Lukla airstrip in the Khumbu region and then follow the trail up to Namche Bazaar, Tengboche (famous for its monastery) and on to Khumjung Village, a very pleasant settlement of mostly Sherpa people. This trek is a perfect opportunity to learn about the hardy and resilient Sherpas, their environment, culture and also some of the finest mountain views. This is an excellent adventure for first-time trekkers in Nepal. This trek is ideally suited for those who have limited time to take longer treks into the Himalayan Mountains.

The highest elevation reached on this trek is at the famous Tengboche Monastery (3,860m). 

Sherpa Teams have been taking care of trekkers and mountain climbers for over 40 years and will take care of all permits, food and accommodation on the trek. We pride ourselves on having an excellent reputation and continually strive to make your trek something ‘special’.

ITINERARY

Expand All

A representative from Sherpa Teams g will meet you at the airport and transfer you to your hotel in Thamel – the tourist hub of Kathmandu. We will have a short pre-trek briefing and give you a copy of the map showing the route we will take. You will also get to meet your trekking guide too. Please ensure to have your passport, three passport-size photos and a copy of your travel insurance policy with you. This is also the time to clear the balance of your trek. You will also be asked to sign a disclaimer form.

Your adventure begins after arriving at Tenzing Hillary Airport at Lukla and then following the trail to Phakding Village.  The trail takes us through Chaurikharka Village before climbing to Dudh Koshi Ghat (2,530m/8,300ft) and then on to Phakding. At Phakding we will visit Rimishung Monastery.

We follow the trail along the banks of the Dudh Koshi River and then cross several suspension bridges, including the Hillary suspension bridge, before coming to the Sagarmatha National Park checkpoint where they will ask to see our trekking permits. We then ascend through a dense forest that can be quite tiring as we head to higher altitudes. This is also where we get our first peek of Mt. Everest soaring above us. A bit further on we come to Namche Bazaar, a significant village where trekkers meet before heading deeper into the Himalayan Mountains.

This is an important day where it is necessary to acclimatize before ascending to higher altitudes. Health authorities strongly recommend you stay active and keep active during this acclimatization period. We will take a short trek to Thame or alternatively visit Khunde. We may also explore Namche Bazaar the centre of the Everest Khumbu region. If you arrive on either Friday evening or on Saturday you will be able to visit the bustling weekly market. Your guide will take you higher up the mountain-side to the Tourist Visitor Centre near to the headquarters of the Sagarmatha National Park. It is a fascinating place that has numerous displays of equipment and relics from the early explorers in this region. This is also a good opportunity to learn more about the Sherpa people and the flora and fauna of the region.

The trail is fairly flat heading to Tengboche and zigzags through the valleys before coming to Kenjoma Village where it joins the trail from Khumjung passing numerous Mani stones (stones inscribed with sacred Buddhist prayers). The views of Everest and Mt. Ama Dablam are breathtaking along this part of the trail. We pass the small village of Sanasa and then the path descends to Phunki Thanga Village (3250m) before a steep climb up through pine forests before reaching Tengboche (3870m). Tengboche is famous for its magnificent views of many of the world’s tallest peaks, such as Kwangde (6187m), Tawachee (6542m), Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse (8501m), Amadablam, Kantega and Thamserku. Tonight we stay at Tengboche.

Today we backtrack on the same trail with the mountains behind us and descend from Tengboche (3,860m) to Namche Bazaar.

This is our final day of trekking as we return to Lukla where the trek began. We can look back on the trek and relax at Lukla for the remainder of the day, wander about the town and enjoy a hot shower! In the evening we may decide to have a few celebratory drinks with your trekking mates after this short  adventure into the Himalayan Mountains.

On your scenic flight back to Kathmandu you will have some final birds-eye views down on the mountains where you ventured. On arrival in Kathmandu, we will take you from the airport back to your hotel.

Today marks the end of your visit to the famous Himalayas. A representative from Sherpa Teams will take you to the airport, approximately 3 hours before your scheduled flight. On your way home you'll have time to think about your next exciting journey in this mountainous country.

GOOD TO KNOW

Accommodation

You will be accommodated in 3-star hotels in Kathmandu. During the trek, we will be staying at lodges/ teahouses. You may find comfort and better quality teahouses - having attached bathroom - until Namche which is a thriving town seeing many more tourists and a greater range of accommodation. It should be noted that at higher elevations the quality of accommodation may not be as good, with more basic rooms with the bare necessities.

Meals during the trek

 In Kathmandu, your hotel includes breakfast, whereas all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) will be provided during the trek. A staple food of the Khumbu region is potatoes, oats, buckwheat, Sherpa stew and Tibetan bread. Sherpas’ started farming potatoes when the first seeds were introduced to the region in the early 90s. There is a limited choice of food at higher elevations and except many potato dishes. Potatoes are high in carbohydrates – an excellent source of energy needed at high altitudes.

Transportation

We use a private car for sightseeing and for the airport to hotel pick and drop off. We do not have to use public transportation or local buses during the trek. Our only flights are from Kathmandu to Lukla and return.

Physical fitness

Everest Panorama Trek is an easy trek where you often have to walk 5-6 hours a day. You don’t need past experience of hiking or trekking but if you have done any kind of trekking activities then it is always a plus!. We have met people from all walks of life, shapes, and sizes who have completed the trek. The only difficult part is when altitude sickness strikes and the effect that it can have on your body. Before leaving for Nepal it is good if you can prepare yourself physically by increasing your stamina and oxygen intake. 

Remember – The better prepared – the more enjoyable your trek!
