Trip Overview

Everest View Trek is often regarded as one of the best short treks in Nepal. It makes a great option for people willing to experience the wilderness of the Himalayas in a short time.

It incorporates all the highlights you’d expect from any high-altitude trek in Nepal. The 9-days trek blends the rich heritage and the wondrous natural beauty of the Everest region. Besides that, you can enjoy the marvelous sight of the world’s highest mountains, including Mount Everest, Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Kongde, Kusum Kanguru, Nuptse, and Thamserku.

Like most trips in the Khumbu region, Everest View Trek begins with a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. This 35-minute flight from Kathmandu to the Tenzing-Hillary Airport is dubbed the most extreme by many travelers. On a clear day, you can savor glimpses of the rugged landscapes and mountain panoramas from the small window of your aircraft.

From Lukla, you’ll walk past dense alpine forests and several Sherpa villages toward Phakding. Furthermore, you’ll continue your walk at the riverbank of the Dudh Koshi River towards Khumbu’s historical town of Namche Bazaar. On the way, you’ll enter the Sagarmatha National Park at Monjo.

Namche Bazaar is a beautiful Sherpatown clustered with local markets, trekking shops, cafes, coffee shops, restaurants, teahouses, and hotels. You can stroll around the village and make the best use of fast internet, good coffee, and great food! Besides, Namche Bazaar also offers a close-up view of Kongde, Kanguru, and Thamserku.

On the leisure day at Namche Bazaar, you’ll hike to Syangboche Airport and Everest View Hotel. At 3,880 meters, this hotel is considered the world’s highest-placed luxury hotel. You’ll also visit the Everest Photo Gallery and Sherpa Culture Museum on the way back.

Another significant highlight of the Everest View Trek is a visit to Tengboche Monastery. It is Khumbu’s oldest and largest Buddhist monastery, located at 3,860 meters. Besides, Tengboche marks the highest elevation point of the trek. Right from the monastery premises, you’ll get to relish the spectacular panorama of Mount Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Nuptse, and Thamserku.

From Tengboche, you’ll retrace the route back to Namche Bazaar and then to Lukla. After that, you’ll catch a flight back to Kathmandu to conclude your Himalayan adventure.

In a nutshell, Everest View Trek is a short and easy trek in the Himalayas. You’ll have to walk around four to five hours on a relatively moderate trail on most days. It is an excellent way to indulge in authentic mountain life in a short time.

However, if you’d like to learn and experience the natural, cultural, and spiritual aspects of the Khumbu region deeply, we recommend our 14-Day Everest Base Camp Short Trek.

Thank You Ganga and Balaram for your arrangements of the best trekking journey I have ever undergone! Finished with the Everest View Trek fairly recently in the early days of March, I had the pleasure of undergoing the trek with one of the most efficient travel agencies that I had the pleasure of dealing with. Without delay, all of the schedule times were taken care of and I had no delays whatsoever. From my landing at the Tribhuwan International Airport to my flight to/from Lukla, Baban our guide was there every step of the way. Ganga was also most profound in answering and clearing up the queries and the questions I had beforehand, and was also available to me during the trek as well. From arranging the porters to the complimentary equipments of sleeping bags and Down Jackets, Nepal Hiking Team provides the best services.
As a solo traveler, I had requested for a group trekking and Balaram arranged it for me. It made the trekking journey even more fun and enjoyable than it was bound to be. The services that I was given was up to par with the best. Thank you Nepal Hiking Team for an incredible trekking experience!

The nine day duration of the trek package perfectly aligned with my schedules for my visit to Nepal. With quick arrangements with Balaram, my trekking journey was assigned in a very professional yet quick way. I had wanted a private trip and I was provided the service of porter and my guide as well. Porter was very good and kind and my guide, Prakash, handled all of the accommodation and transportation part in a brilliant way without me having to face any problems at all. The trekking journey went very smoothly and I enjoyed the trek greatly. The lovely mountains and the Himalayan air made everything beautiful and I know that I am going to miss those sceneries of the villages and of the land very much. Nepal Hiking Team made this trip possible for me and I would like to thank everyone involved in the trip from Balaram and my guide Prakash to the other team and staff members who made it a reality!

The Everest View Trek had some wonderful sceneries. I and my family had undergone the trek as it was a relatively moderate trekking journey. Removing the strenuous trekking work, Everest view Trek has an easy trekking trail that my family had no problem undergoing. The views of Mount Everest from Tengboche and from Namche were incredible! Greeted at the airport so warmly by Ganga, my family was well taken care of by Arun and Baban who accompanied us throughout the journey as well. The Tengboche monastery was amazing and I really enjoyed the spiritual atmosphere of the temple. Exploring Namche Bazaar and the Sherpa Culture Museum and the national art Gallery was a memorable experience.
Good work with the meals as well, I must say! With the option of both vegetarian and non vegetarian meals, my family had plenty to choose from. The lodges were comfortable to stay at and weren’t too crowded. Overall, a wonderful service was provided by the team and the cordialities of Ganga made the trekking journey ever more profound for us. We are thinking of coming back to Nepal in the late Septembers again for another visit and we are most definitely going to go with Nepal Hiking Team again!

Nicky N Prasad, Australia I had always wanted to do the Everest Trek, and when I finally had the opportunity, I was delighted with enthusiasm! I think I am also fortunate to have been in the company of Nepal Hiking Team because they gave me no reason whatsoever to companion about anything at all. Every service I received was top-notch, and I was always provided the best available services, from the food and guesthouses to the porter and guiding services. My guide was Paban, and he was very proficient at his work. He made sure that I was comfortable and had everything I needed. The trip was terrific, and I am so glad I was with NHT! Their prompt responses, their kind gestures, and the best organization of the trip had me convinced that I was with the professionals from the very beginning. My recommendation goes to Nepal Hiking Team for being one of Nepal's most reliant tour agencies!  
Jayadatta Narasipura, USA Dear Ganga and the entire team, We, Narasipura family would like to thank you and your team for making once in a lifetime experience possible. All three of us loved every minute we spent in the Himalayas and Nepal. After my EBC trek, I wanted to experience Himalayas again with my family. Your team made it possible. Every day, we knew what to expect because Paban explained us on previous evening and in the morning. In seven days, we trekked in the lush green forest, saw numerous waterfalls, were inside the clouds, refreshed ourselves in the river and stream water, took multiple breaks with tea, coffee. Even though it was very hard, especially from 3rd to 5th day, we managed to get over the fatigue to continue because of Paban, Gokul and Ganesh’s help and encouragement. They used to tell us to take it easy (Aaramse jayenke) then we can do it, no need to rush. Paban modified the plan/itinerary based on the time of the day and our physical condition. We always ended the day before 5pm. Paban was flexible and booked the best teahouses, he made our trek very enjoyable. On fourth day, we were scheduled to trek to Upper Sinuwa. He changed it, we stayed at Lower Sinuwa. Because of 4th day’s change of plan, he modified fifth day trek too. Every day, as soon as we woke up, we started off with a hot cup of coffee or tea, they served to us without fail. Enjoying first few minutes of the day looking the sunrise in the mountains with a hot drink was so peaceful and relaxing. At the end of every day, we had fun, talking, playing cards, and having delicious dinner with fresh fruits as dessert. It was a beautiful experience. Paban, Gokul and Ganesh treated us royally and with respect, we are grateful to them. Spending last two days of our trek in the Machapuchare and Annapurna basecamps were a bliss, surrounded by the Annapurna mountain range was just amazing, and unbelievable. On the last day of the trip, we loved the cultural tour of the three cities, we were mesmerized by the artwork. Hope we can come back and enjoy Nepal again. We appreciate everything you did for us to accomplish our dream trek. Datta Trip done between 9th to 18th May 2022
