ITINERARY

Expand All

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 passes 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. Breakfast, lunch & dinner Included.

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, a 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.

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

EBC is a challenging trek where you often have to walk 6-7 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!

FAQS

Expand All

The Everest View Trek is a shorter and less challenging trek compared to the full Everest Base Camp Trek. It is designed for those who want to experience the beauty of the Everest region and witness stunning views of Mount Everest without trekking all the way to the base camp.

The duration of the Everest View Trek is usually around 5-7 days, depending on the specific itinerary and individual fitness levels. This trek is shorter than the Everest Base Camp Trek and focuses on reaching viewpoints that offer breathtaking views of Everest and other Himalayan peaks.

The maximum altitude reached during the Everest View Trek is usually around 3,880 meters (12,730 feet) at the village of Tengboche. This is where the famous Tengboche Monastery is located and provides stunning panoramic views of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, and other surrounding peaks.

No, prior trekking experience is not necessary for the Everest View Trek. It is a relatively easier trek compared to the full Everest Base Camp Trek and can be enjoyed by people of various fitness levels. However, it is still recommended to have a reasonable level of fitness and some hiking experience.

The best time to undertake the Everest View Trek is during the spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) seasons. These months offer stable weather conditions, clear skies, and moderate temperatures, making it ideal for trekking and enjoying the views.

Accommodation during the Everest View Trek is typically in tea houses or lodges along the trekking route. These are basic but comfortable accommodations offering meals and a place to rest. Some tea houses may have shared bathrooms, while others may have attached bathrooms.

To do the Everest View Trek, you will need two permits: the Sagarmatha National Park Permit and the TIMS (Trekkers' Information Management System) Card. These permits can be obtained through authorized trekking agencies or from the Department of Immigration in Kathmandu.

Altitude sickness is a potential concern during the Everest View Trek, although the maximum altitude reached is relatively lower compared to the full Everest Base Camp Trek. It is still important to acclimatize properly by taking rest days and ascending gradually. Drinking plenty of water and following your guide's advice is essential.
 

Some essential items to pack for the Everest View Trek include trekking boots, warm clothing layers, a good quality sleeping bag, a down jacket, a hat, gloves, sunglasses, a headlamp, sunscreen, a water bottle, and personal toiletries. It is best to pack light but ensure you have all the necessary gear.

Yes, hiring a guide and porter is optional but highly recommended for the Everest View Trek. A guide will provide valuable information, ensure your safety, and assist with navigation, while a porter can carry your heavy backpack, allowing you to trek with less weight and enjoy the journey more comfortably.
