    Everest View trek is an easy short Everest region trekking option, which offers superb views of the world's highest peak Mount Everest, and many other Himalayan peaks of Everest region. For people with limited time and a desire for an overview of the top of the world, this trekking tour option should be considered the best and wisest selection. This trek not only offers the best view of the mountains but also provides a great opportunity to explore the Sherpa people and their culture. Everest View trek also presents the opportunity to explore Buddhist monasteries, learn about Buddhism, and take a closer look at the alpine flora and fauna.


    The Everest view trek starts with a spectacular mountain flight to Lukla and it takes about 45 minutes from Kathmandu. Lukla is a busy airstrip in the Everest region and is the starting point of the trek. Initially, the trek descends through Sherpa villages along the spectacular gorge of Dudh Koshi River to the village of Phakding, where most tourists take overnight acclimatization rest. The trek continues to NAMCHE Bazaar (3440m) through pine and rhododendron forests with an abundance of wildlife. NAMCHE Bazaar is considered as Sherpa nation's capital and it is the gateway to Everest. After walking through simple villages, the well-painted houses of NAMCHE with modern facilities give a different flavor to your short trek.

    Typically all hikers and climbers take a full day's rest in NAMCHE to acclimatize and to prevent the Acute Mountain Sickness. The next and last stage of this short trek is Tengboche and it is a major highlight of this trek. With an elevation of 3860 meters above sea level, the culturally significant Buddhist monastery is located at the amazing backdrop of Mount Amadablam. Tengboche Monastery is the biggest monastery in the Everest area where climbers and trekkers stop by to seek the traditional blessing from the monastery Lama for the success of their journey. Every year a large number of Buddhist pilgrims come here to celebrate the Mani Rimdu festival. It is the most significant annual festival of Sherpa people. The culturally significant Tengboche also offers a superb view of Mt. Everest and several other prominent mountains.

    The panoramic view of Everest from this location is breathtaking including the famous south face of Mount Lhotse and the trek leading to Nirvana truly deserves the name of the Everest view trek. It is naturally the perfect spot to photograph Everest, Amadablam, Lhotse, and other not-less spectacular peaks. Such splendid views make it difficult to control your fingertips by pressing the camera's shutter button. After enjoying the heritage site and the mountain views you will descend to Syangboche, another place for the superb view of Everest and surrounding peaks, which is perhaps the best place for the most spectacular view of Everest and other mountains as well as glaciers. The dramatic mountain environment will stay in your memory for the rest of your life. From here you will return to Lukla via Khumjung, the biggest Sherpa village in the Everest area. A visit to this village is the best way to meet and interact with Sherpa people in their natural environment and to sample their culture and tradition. Grazing Yaks, Buddhist monasteries, Hillary School, and the highlander culture of Sherpa people are the attractions of this area. Descending the Lukla airport covers the remaining highlights of the Everest region and gives you another opportunity to walk through the gorgeous area of colorful Khumbu villages. A short flight back to Kathmandu gives you last glimpses of Himalayan views and will conclude your Everest View Trek of a weeklong adventure into the one of world's most iconic views.


    The trek to Everest View Trek is moderate. You don't need any prior trekking expertise because the trail is marked as moderate. However, trekkers should be aware that they will be hiking up and down an uneven terrain with steep routes, ridges, and rocky paths, for an average of 5-6 hours every day. The vistas along the way are well worth the effort.
    Regular exercises such as walking and aerobics can help maintain your body’s stamina. Given the lower oxygen levels at higher altitudes, cardiovascular activities, and hill training can be beneficial in preparing for the changing trail conditions.
    At such a high altitude, acquiring Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) is a risk. As a result, standard altitude safety precautions must be followed. Continuing walking at an increasing altitude will produce AMS symptoms, so it is recommended to stop and acclimatize in Namche Bazaar. Climbing less than 600 meters each day is encouraged. Medications like Diamox, which acts as a respiratory stimulant, can help prevent AMS.

    To be able to trek through Everest base camp without difficulty, you’ll need a certain level of energy and endurance. As the trek is above 3500 meters, acute mountain sickness is a distinct possibility. While most people may only experience minor discomfort, a small percentage may require special attention.


    The Everest View Trek is accessible year-round, yet the best seasons for clear skies and comfortable temperatures are spring (April-May) and fall (September-November). These periods offer excellent visibility and sunny weather.
    Trekking during the monsoon season (June-August) can be challenging due to heavy rainfall, which makes the trail slippery and reduces visibility. The winter season (December-February) also presents challenges with snow-covered paths and colder temperatures. Nonetheless, with the appropriate equipment and also prep work, trekking is possible during these seasons.
    Wintertime, specifically from December to February, can be an ideal choice for those who prefer less crowded trails. The number of trekkers is significantly lower compared to the peak seasons, offering a more peaceful trekking experience. Despite the challenges of snow and cold, winter trekking can provide a unique and serene experience in the Everest region.
    Given the unpredictable highland weather, trekkers should be prepared for sudden changes in conditions. Appropriate gear, including waterproof clothing and sturdy footwear, is essential.
