If you are mesmerized by the journey and willing to push further, you can extend the trek to Everest base camp. We also have the option to trek up to the base camp Everest and return in a helicopter.

Why go on the Everest Panorama Trek?

One thing that makes Everest panorama trekking the best in the Khumbu region is the itinerary and the experience you get in a short time. Below are the reasons that make Everest view touring a perfect package for a quick getaway.

Get to know a lot about Nepal's history and culture

Our Everest panorama trekking itinerary has two leisure days that will give you much time to visit the significant historical sites in Kathmandu Valley. Our licensed guide guides the sightseeing tour, so you do not have to worry about asking for info regarding the monuments around the sites.

We'll divide the tourist site visits between the two days. Before the trek begins, we explore the Boudhanath Stupa, Pashupatinath Temple, Monkey Temple, and Kathmandu Durbar Square. After the trek, we'll visit Patan Durbar Square and Bhaktapur Durbar Square.

All of these sites are UNESCO World Heritage Sites and have religious values. You can see a perfect balance between Hinduism and Buddhism. The art, architecture, and the museum inside the sites tell much about Nepali traditions and history.

Short trek in the Everest region

Everest region has many treks like the classic Everest base camp trek, Gokyo lake trek, and Everest three passes trek. All of these treks are 12 days to two weeks long. The three-pass trek is even longer than that. So, here we are presenting a short trek package.

If you are already in Nepal, you can do the Everest panorama trek with us in 5 to 6 days. We'll help you with everything. All you have to do is contact us and let us know your availability.

Witness stunning views of Mt. Everest

Enjoy a dramatic mountain panorama without trekking to the EBC. Indulge diverse landscapes at every turn in the route and escape between giant snow-clustered Himalayan mountains like Everest (8,849 m), Lhotse (8,516 m), Nuptse (7,861 m), Kongde Ri (6,187 m), Thamserku (6,608 m), Ama Dablam (6,812 m), and Pumori (7,161 m).

Trek in the Sagarmatha National Park

Sagarmatha National Park begins from Monjo village onwards, on the second day of trekking, and goes up to Mount Everest. Therefore, the national park has diverse climatic zones and a wide range of flora & fauna.

Lush forests of rhododendron, pine, fir, juniper, and oak exist. You come across a range of vegetation and birds on the way. You may also see snow leopards, ghorals, or red pandas if you are lucky.

The national park has many streams, rivers, and waterfalls. There are also lakes, moraines, and gorges. Sagarmatha National Park is full of nature's wonders, and as you gain elevation, the trail will unfold many marvels.

Explore beautiful villages and see the lifestyle of Sherpas

The overnight stay in different villages makes the trek immersive. You stay overnight in lodges. This accommodation tells a lot about the lifestyle of the mountain people. Likewise, you can chat with the locals as most of them understand English and can speak too.

The communities like Sherpa, Rai, and Limbu resided in the villages. They all have distinct festivals and practices. Likewise, the villages have many things to do and see, from museums to cafes and souvenir shops.

Visit Tengboche monastery

Tengboche Monastery is a Tibetan Buddhist monastery first built in 1961. It is the biggest monastery in the Khumbu region and goes by Thyangboche Monastery and Dawa Choling Gompa. After two consecutive destruction of this monastery in 1934 and 1989 due to an earthquake & fire, the monastery was built with the help of volunteers and international assistance.

Thirling flight in and out of Lukla airport

The flight to Lukla airport is famous worldwide because of its elevation and small runway. During the flight, the aerial views of the Himalayas are breathtaking. At 2,860 meters, the flight landing and take-off experience are no doubt nerve-racking.

Everest Panorama Trek Preparation

Unlike the other treks in the Everest region, you do not have to do anything hardcore for Everest panorama trekking. The trail is easygoing and only demands long walking hours. Take care of your health and work on your stamina. You have to walk 6 to 7 hours daily, so prepare for that.

Have 3 to 4 weeks at least on your hand to prepare for the trek. To physically prepare your body, go on short hikes or walks. You can swim, cycle, or jog to build your stamina.

We also recommend breaking into your trekking shoes before the beginning of the trek to get used to them (if it is new). This way, you do not have to deal with blisters during the trek.

Visit your doctor once and ask whether your body can see a medical emergency during the trek. We recommend this to travelers who have any previous medical history. Also, get a prescription for headaches, colds, and poor digestion.

  • Q1. How difficult is Everest Panorama Trek?

    As we have already said, Everest panorama trekking is an easy trek. So, do you need any previous trekking experience to do this trek? The answer is no. Everest panorama trek is easy yet adventurous, which means there are a few steep actions and long ascends & descends.

    You cannot expect anything less than this in the Himalayas. The trail moves along the foothills of the lush green hills and mountains. Walking through the forested path and crossing suspension bridges frequently might be too much for some trekkers.

    Regarding facilities, as you do not touch a very high altitude during the trek, there'll be no issues with general services like internet and charging. The chances of altitude sickness are low, too, because our Everest panorama trek itinerary has ample rest days, and we do not ascend more than 500 meters a day.
