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!
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.
