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.

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
