Everest Panorama View Trek Overview

If you’ve been thinking about trekking in the Nepal Himalaya, you’ll likely have Mount Everest – the highest mountain in the world on your mind! At a staggering 8,848m/29,029ft, Mount Everest conquers them all. Yet it’s not as inaccessible as you might think! On our Everest Panorama View Trek, you can enjoy amazing views of Mount Everest, without trekking as far as Everest Base Camp.

On this awe-inspiring trek, we walk to the village of Tengboche (3,867m/12,687ft). Home to an impressive Tibetan Buddhist monastery of the Sherpa community – Dawa Choling Gompa. From Tengboche, lose yourself in the incredible panoramic beauty of the Himalayan giants. You’ll have great views of Mount Everest, but that’s not all! You’ll see the fourth highest mountain Lhotse (8,516m/27,940ft)! Also Nuptse (7,861m/25,791ft), Taboche (6,495m/21,309ft), Thamserku (6,623m/21,729ft) and beautiful Ama Dablam (6,812m/22,349ft).

Most of the trek is moderate, with two quite challenging climbs to reach Namche Bazaar and Tengboche.

Trekking to Tengboche (3,867m/12,687ft)

Our adventure begins with a scenic flight from Kathmandu into the small mountain airport in Lukla, named after Sherpa Tenzing Norgay and Sir Edmund Hillary – the first men to summit Everest. We start our trek at 2,860m/9,383ft, well away from the buzz of daily life. Entering Sagarmatha (Mount Everest) National Park, you’ll feel privileged and excited to see the wild beauty within.

On our way to Tengboche, we pass through colourful Sherpa villages. You’ll find everything and more in the wonderful mountain city of Namche Bazaar. We cross swinging suspension bridges covered with Tibetan Prayer flags. You’ll see nothing greener than the beautiful terraced farmlands, and in Spring, walk through forests of bright rhododendrons.

Hold Your Breath for the Amazing Views at Tengboche!

You won’t be seeing the amazing line up of mountains for the first time, as they’ll regularly make an appearance throughout our trek. But you’ll find the view from Tengboche is superb. You’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the views during late afternoon. The next morning promises to be even more spectacular! We wake in time for sunrise and watch the sun turn our beloved mountains pink, orange and gold. Now that’s an Everest View!

Kathmandu

We return to Kathmandu the same way, taking a flight from Lukla and experiencing the adrenaline rush as the plane takes off downhill! After your fabulous adventure, you’ll want some time to relax in the capital.

Kathmandu is home to seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites, so you’ll want to see some! Ask us about including a sightseeing tour in your itinerary and make sure you allow time to pick up souvenirs and gifts!

Day 1

Arrive in Kathmandu

We’ll be waiting to pick you up when you arrive at Kathmandu Tribhuvan International Airport. We’ll take you straight to your hotel in Kathmandu. The rest of the day is yours to relax, explore and prepare for your trek. If you still need to pick up some equipment, you’ll find everything near your hotel in Thamel, the tourist haven of Kathmandu.
Day 2

Fly to Lukla (2,860m/9,383ft) and trek to Phakding (2,600m/8530ft) ~3 hours walking

After an early breakfast, we go straight to the airport for our flight to Lukla. The flight itself is an unforgettable experience! We’ll board a small plane, so you’re guaranteed a good view! Watch the pilots make their preparations in the cockpit, then sit back, relax and enjoy an incredible 40 minute scenic flight into the mountains. Once we touch down at Tenzing-Hillary airport, we’ll meet our other team members and get ready to begin our trek. We’ll walk just three hours today, to Phakding, as we begin adapting to the high altitude. After two hours walking, we lunch in Ghat. Then after another hour of walking, we arrive in Phakding where we’ll spend the night. The afternoon is yours to look around and relax!
Day 3

Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3,440m/11,286ft) ~6 hours walking

We start our day with some short uphills and downhills as we cross bridges above the Dudh Kosi river several times. Prepare yourself for an incredible view of Mount Thamserku (6,623m/21,729ft) as we pass through Benkar village. We continue to Monjo and the entrance to Sagarmatha (Mount Everest) National Park, where our trekking permits will be checked. Then after two and a half hours, we gradually descend to Jorsale and have lunch. If you haven’t tried it yet, dal bhat is a must! We continue for an hour along the riverbank to the impressive Hillary suspension bridge. Then you’ll really test your legs for the first time with a steep two hour climb up to Namche Bazaar. Here you’ll be rewarded with incredible views of Mount Everest, Lhotse (8,516m/27,940ft) – the fourth highest mountain, Kusum Kanguru, Taboche and many more. We’ll spend two nights in colorful Namche Bazaar whilst we acclimatise to the high altitude.
Day 4

Acclimatisation day in Namche Bazaar (~4-5 hours walking, up to 3,880m/12,730ft)

We’re staying put, but it’s not a rest day! Hiking to a higher altitude and then descending to sleep is great for your acclimatisation. Plus there are many things to see and do around Namche! We start with a hike up to Syangboche, home of the Hotel Everest View, with a spectacular view of the highest mountain on Earth! Then we continue to the Sherpa village of Khumjung at the foot of sacred Mount Khumbila for lunch. Before we return to Namche, we visit the Sir Edmund Hillary school and hospital built by the Himalayan Trust. The rest of the day is yours to explore fascinating mountain city Namche Bazaar. Here you’ll find smiling Nepali shop owners, trekking gear, and trinkets galore!
Day 5

Namche Bazaar to Tengboche (3,867m/12,687ft) ~6 hours walking

Day five promises the most magnificent views of the Himalaya and the big one you’ve been waiting for! After just 30 minutes you’ll see Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Taboche, Thamserku, and many other snow covered peaks. We continue easily for two and a half hours to our lunch stop at Phungki Thanka. Then we’ve got another long, steep climb up to our ultimate destination Tengboche. It’s all worth it! Instantly you’ll recognise majestic Everest, the highest mountain in the world closer than ever! Soak up the incredible views as you explore this amazing mountain settlement. Tengboche is also home to the Tibetan Buddhist monastery Dawa Choling Gompa. We’ll take time to explore the monastery grounds before seeing the resident monks inside singing and chanting. After a big day, get some rest. We’re not done with Everest yet!
Day 6

Tengboche to Jorsale (2,740m/8,990ft) ~5 hours walking

We rise early, remembering what awaits us outside! Don’t forget your camera, this is a photo opportunity you’ll not want to miss! As the sun turns Everest golden, you won’t be able to keep your eyes off this awesome sight. Bask in the glory of the moment and save the memory forever. After breakfast we slowly make our way back down the valley. After five hours of easy walking, we reach Jorsale where we’ll rest for the night.
Day 7

Jorsale to Lukla (2,860m/9,383ft) ~4-5 hours walking

Day seven is the final day of our trekking adventure to see Mount Everest up close! Down, down, down we go for four to five hours. Back the way we came, all the way to Lukla. Relax and celebrate your amazing achievement with a drink or game of pool in one of Lukla’s many bars. You’ll certainly deserve it!
Day 8

Namaste Nepal!
My friend and I decided to make the first trek in Nepal and so we booked the Everest View Trek in last December. The view was incredibly beautiful and peaceful. We celebrated our New Year Eve at “Tengboche” (3,860 msl) with an awesome view of the Mt. Everest. We were lucky that our Guide understands the sea level people who had to deal with high altitude and coldness. It was indeed an unforgettable trip for us with professional support from our guide and porter. We have already booked our next trip with them and looking forward to it.
