EVEREST PANORAMA TREK

Top of the world experience – soaring snow-clad peaks & the rich spiritual homeland of the Tibetan Sherpa people.

The Everest Panorama Trek is less physically demanding while still offering some of the most spectacular views of the world’s highest peaks, including Everest, Lhotse, Thamserku and Ama Dablam. 
A trip to this region is not complete without a visit to the famous Tengboche Monastery (3867m), with its breathtaking backdrop of Mt. Ama Dablam. Tengboche Monastery is one of the most important Buddhist monasteries in Nepal and particularly the Khumbu region.

The journey begins with a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla airfield in the Khumbu region and then a trek up to Namche Bazaar, Tyangboche and then to Khumjung Village (3790m), home to the Sherpa people. 
This trek is ideally suited to those a little short on time but still wanting to experience life among the Sherpa villages in the Everest region.

Highlights of Everest Panorama Trek 

  • Amazing close-up panoramic views of some of the world’s highest peaks.
  • Glimpse of Everest – the world’s highest mountain.
  • Visit the famous Tengboche Monastery.
  • Live among the ever-smiling Sherpa’s & their unique customs & festivals.
  • Fly into one of the highest airfields among the awesome mountains at Lukla.
  • Lower altitude trek requiring less acclimatization time & more time to explore..

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
On arrival at Kathmandu airport, you will be met by a representative from Sherpa Expedition & Trekking who will take you to your 3-star hotel. You can rest at your hotel or stroll around Thamel and do some last-minute shopping and take in the sights.
After an early morning start, you will be picked up at the hotel by our guide who will take you to the domestic terminal of Kathmandu airport. The flight from Kathmandu to Lukla takes around 35 minutes, time enough to take in the spectacular views of the Himalayas. After landing at Tenzing-Hilary airport you will meet your porter who will carry your luggage. You then begin your journey with a relatively easy trek passing a Kani (ceremonial gatehouse) before the trail descends then leads above Kyangma village with its large Gompa (monastery) and school. We then continue to Cheplung village where the trail passes through community forest within sight of the Dudh Koshi River. After crossing the suspension bridge you climb across the ridge to Ghat and then pass a school and complex of Mani walls, Chortens, and prayer wheels. After a short walk from Ghat we reach Phakding. Overnight at a mountain lodge.
After breakfast, the trek crosses several suspension bridges over the Dudh Kosi River before passing through Tok-Tok, Bhenkar, and Monjo and then arriving at Sagarmatha National Park entrance gate where you will be required to buy a permit. After following the river bed for a few hours and after the last Hillary suspension bridge, there is a steep uphill trek to Namche Bazaar. Namche has a good selection of restaurants, cyber café, pubs, post office, ATM, and banks. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included.
This idyllic town is an ideal place for "acclimatization". Health specialists recommend we spend the day being active, rather than sitting idle. From Namche, it is possible to take a short hike to Everest View Resort, Thame, visiting Khunde or relax and explore Namche Bazaar. Namche Bazaar is the main center of the Everest (Khumbu) region and has government offices, ATMs, internet cafes, shops, restaurants, bakery, and a colorful market each Friday evening and Saturday. A short trek of only a hundred meters will help us to properly acclimatize. Our guides will also take us to the Tourist Visitor Center near the headquarters of the Sagarmatha National Park where we can observe an assortment of relics related to the first mountaineers to climb Everest, Sherpa culture and discover the varied plant and animal life of the Everest region. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included
The trek continues along the rapid flowing glacial waters of the Dudh Kosi with magnificent views of the mountains (Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Taboche peak, Amadablam. You eventually reach an altitude of 3,800 meters at Tengboche. At the Tengboche monastery are unbelievably ornate wall hangings, a 20-foot sculpture of various poses of the Buddha, musical instruments, and robes of the Lamas. Our 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. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included
Returning on the same trail we initially head to Tengboche (3870m) and on to the village of Namche Bazaar.
Today we begin with a 7 hour trek from Namche Bazaar to Lukla, a mostly downhill trail with some level ground until we reach Lukla. At this point we leave Sagarmatha National Park. Tonight we stay at Lukla where we can relax and share our experiences of this awesome adventure.
After Everest panorama day trek we take an early morning flight from Lukla to Kathmandu. After arriving at Kathmandu, you can take a rest or do some shopping. This is also a time to catch up on visiting places you missed on arrival in Kathmandu. Our guides will continue to assist you with b souvenir shopping or sightseeing. This evening is our farewell dinner at a traditional Nepali restaurant along with a traditional cultural dance show.
Your adventure comes to an end today – but your memories will last a lifetime! Our company representative 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 and explore the most magnificent mountains of Nepal.

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!
