EVEREST PANORAMA TREK

​​Everest Panorama Trek of Everest Region is relatively easy compared to some of the other treks, takes you up high along trails to Tengboche Monastery (3850m).

Everest Panorama Trek is a short but very scenic trek that offers a really magnificent view of the world’s highest peaks, including Everest, Lhotse, Thamserku, Ama Dablam, and other many snowy peaks.

We fly from Kathmandu to Lukla airstrip in the Khumbu region and trek up to Namche BazarTyangboche (famous for its monastery) and into the Khumjung village, a very nice settlement of Sherpas people. Everest Panorama Trek is a great introduction to Sherpa country and its culture with mountain views standing beautifully, it is a very popular destination for first-time trekkers in Nepal. Everest Panorama Trek is suitable for trekkers who do not have enough time for longer treks into the high mountains.

Highlights of Everest Panorama Trek 

  • Equally mind-blowing trip loaded with the breathtaking panoramas, including the highest peak of the world.
  • Everest Panorama Trek to view a Glimpse Mt. Everest and more mountains peak.
  • The treks offer a really stunning view of the world's heights peaks.
  • Tengboche (famous for its monastery), a very nice settlement of Sherpas people.
  • The prosperity of Sherpa people; explore the tiny Himalayan settlements and enjoy the color festivals.
  • Everest Panorama Trekking is a perfect lower altitude trekking in a short and limited time.

Alert: There will be a slight change in the itinerary, especially the days when you take the domestic flights. In April & May and October & November of 2019, the government shifted the operation base for flights to and from Lukla (This is the actual starting point of the trek) from Kathmandu to Manthali, a town 4 to 5 hours drive away from Kathmandu. As a result, anyone who signed up for any Everest trek or climb had to go to Manthali to catch their flight. They moved the base because of renovation and high air traffic for Kathmandu's airport which is also the only international airport in Nepal. This change in the airport will continue in 2020 as well. Though right now there have been direct flights, we expect from March the airport will be shifted.

ITINERARY

Expand All
Our representative Sherpa Expedition and Trekking staff will receive you at Tribhuvan International airport, Kathmandu and transfer you to your hotel. In the evening, we will host a pre-trek meeting in our office and introduce you to your trekking guide. For the meeting, please make sure you bring your passport, three copies of passport-size photos and a readable copy of your travel insurance policy. During this meeting, please clear the due balance if any, and sign the legally binding trip form as well as the non-liability disclaimer.
The 35-minute flight to Tenzing-Hillary Airport usually takes place early in the morning. We suggest you make all the sorting and packing the day before, so there is no rush on Day 3. Once you reach Lukla, have breakfast. Your guide will make an arrangement of porters. We assign one porter to every two clients. Begin the trek by descending towards the Dudh Kosi River where you join the main trail to Namche Bazaar, located just above Chaunikharka (2,713 m). The walking is easy and after passing through the small village of Ghat (2,550 m), it is a short walk to Phakding.
We will walk for the longest hours. After having breakfast, leave Phakding and head towards Namche Bazaar. Continue trekking along the banks of the Dudh Kosi and cross the majestic river many times on exciting suspension bridges laden with prayer flags. After entering the Everest National Park, the trail climbs steeply with breathtaking views. During your uphill walk, if the weather is clear enough, you will get your first view of Mount Everest. Continue climbing and you will reach Namche Bazaar, the Sherpa Capital.
Trekkers and climbers who have arrived in Khumbu region spend time in Namche Bazaar to acclimatize to thinning air of the mountains. It’s exciting to be in this Sherpa town, which is a center of both commercial and cultural activities. During the first half of the day, your guide will take you for a hike around the Bazaar. Visit Sherpa Culture Museum and hike up to Syangboche Airstrip. In your walk, if the weather is clear, you will be rewarded with magnificent views of mountains such as Kongde, Thamserku, Ama Dablam, Lhotse, and Everest.
The trek continues along the rushing glacial waters of the Dudh Kosi with magnificent views of the mountains. We’ll have trekked to an altitude of 3,860 m upon reaching Tengboche. Inside the monastery are incredibly ornate wall hangings, a 20-foot sculpture of Buddha, and the musical instruments and robes of the Lamas. The group will be taken to observe a prayer ceremony either in the evening or in the morning depending on how the trekking goes this day.
Following the same trail, leaving the mountains behind us, our descent takes us from Tengboche (3,860 m) to the town of Namche Bazaar.
This is our last day of trekking as we return to Lukla where the trek began. We enjoy this time to reflect on the trek as a group and the personal achievement of all those who took part. The afternoon is free, so you can wander about, relax and enjoy a hot shower! In the evening, have a few celebratory drinks and dance with your trek mates.
On your flight back to Kathmandu as you leave Lukla, you can enjoy some last-minute glimpses of the mountains. Upon arrival in Kathmandu, our airport representative will transfer you to your hotel from the airport.
Your adventure in Nepal comes to an end today! There is nothing to do but trade emails with your travel companions and organize your photos. A representative from Sherpa Expedition and Trekking will take you to the airport, approximately 3 hours before your scheduled flight. On your way home you'll have plenty of time to plan your next adventure in the wonderful country of Nepal.

GOOD TO KNOW

Accommodation

Accommodation in Kathmandu will be in a 3-star category hotel. This short days trek offers you well developed and comfortable accommodation with attached bathroom during your stay. You are likely to have no complaints regarding the accommodation but do not expect it to be a high standard especially in mountains. All accommodation is on a twin sharing basis.

Meals and drinks during the trek

In Kathmandu, breakfast will be served and a wide range of meals is provided during the trek. Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner are included in your package. Various meals like noodles, soups, spaghetti, bread items, and local cuisines are readily available. Normally, breakfast and dinner are served in a lodge and lunch is served during the walk/daytime. We highly recommend you to buy water purifying pills as you get to have stream water; however, you have the option of buying mineral water and boiled water at an additional cost. Note that, purchasing plastic bottled water is not eco-friendly.

Best time to travel

Autumn (Sept. to November) and spring (March to May) are the best seasons to do an Everest Panorama Trek. This trek can be done throughout the year however, we do not suggest monsoon season, as it is not considered good season both for views and trails.

Physical fitness

Everest Panorama is a short and moderate trek suitable for all passionate walkers who can walk 4-5 hours a day; it is perfect for the beginners or the traveler who are short in time but want to have a glimpse of Mount Everest. Although the trail itself is not difficult, some novice walkers may find it difficult so we recommend you to do regular exercises or outdoor activities like swimming, cycling, jogging, etc before embarking.
