EVEREST PANORAMA TREK

Trek in the foothills of Mount Everest and see the snow giant in all its glory. Suitable for the average walker, this short trek introduces you to the majestic Khumbu region and its rich Sherpa culture. The highest elevation this trek reaches is just above 3800m – which is quite comfortable if you get properly acclimatised at Namche, where you’ll be spending two nights.
The day after your arrival in Nepal, a morning flight (given favourable weather conditions) will take you to Lukla, a small airport town which is the most common starting point for trekkers heading to the Everest region. From Lukla a leisurely walk through several villages and suspension bridges will take you to Phakding. After spending a night in Phakding, you’ll head to Namche and follow a trail that climbs gently up, before ascending a very steep final stretch, to reach Namche Bazaar.

Namche, the trading capital of the Khumbu region, was once the trading grounds of the “Saltmen of Tibet”. Even today we can see Tibetans selling rugs, clothing, salt and dried meat in the region. With karaoke bars, internet cafés, bakeries, shops, even pizzerias, the modern Namche has now become a “tourist-ghetto”. It’s very likely that you’ll hear half a dozen languages being spoken around you during your two day stay in Namche.

Two nights in Namche Bazaar should acclimatise you for a further ascent to Tengboche, which, at 3867 meters is the highest altitude you’ll be reaching. From Tengboche you’ll see a wonderful panorama of Mount Everest and it’ll certainly be one of the best experiences of your life. In Tengboche, you’ll also visit the grand Tengboche monastery, the highest ever place of worship that basks in the solitude of a beautifully scenic valley. The next day, you’ll return to Namche Bazaar and the following day you’ll return to Lukla. The same scenic flight that brought you to Lukla from Kathmandu, awaits you in the tiny airstrip there. The return flight to Kathmandu marks the end of your 9 day trekking adventure in Nepal.

  • Day 1
    Arrival at the Tribhuwan International Airport and transfer to the hotel.

    After your arrival in Kathmandu our representatives at the airport will transfer you to your hotel and help you in checking in.

    Flight from Kathmandu to Lukla (2800m) and trek to Phakding (2652m). Overnight in Phakding.

  • Day 3
    Trek from Phakding to Namche Bazaar. O/N in Namche Bazaar (3446m).

    The trek to Namche Bazar is a steep climb through forests of rhododendron around the Sagarmatha National Park. After crossing several suspension bridges and four hours of walking we reach the Sherpa market of Namche Bazaar.

  • Day 4
    Rest day in Namche Bazaar. O/N in Namche Bazaar (3446m).

    Two days of rest in Namche Bazaar helps us in acclimatisation and prepares us for our journey ahead. Namche, the trading capital of the Khumbu region was once the trading grounds of Tibetan Salt. Even today we can see Tibetans selling rugs, clothing, salt and dried meat in the region. Namche is believed to be one of the best places on earth to see the sun rise and set between the snow clad Himalayas.

  • Day 5
    Trek from Namche Bazaar to Tengboche (3867m).

    Trek from Tengboche to Namche Bazar (3446m).

    The trail now descends to Namche Bazaar which offers superb views of Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku and Kwangde peaks. We stay overnight at Namche, a perfect place to celebrate the success of our two week trek.

  • Day 7
    Trek from Namche to Lukla (2800m).

    On our way back, we cross suspension bridges over the Dudh Koshi River, make our way through steep descends and walk past numerous tea houses before finally arriving at Lukla.
