Everest view Trek

Duration: 10 Days   |  2 Reviews

Everest View Trek quite literally follows the Everest panorama around the Khumbu region. This 10-day-long trek is for those who want to get a clear and up-close view of the world’s highest peak, Mt. Everest ( 8,848m) without scaling the high altitudes.  We start the trek in Kathmandu visiting some UNESCO World Heritage sites in the city. This helps us understand Nepalese culture better. The next day we fly to Lukla on a twin otter plane. We trek 3 hours to Phakding the same day. You can get infrequent but a few distant glances of Mt. Everest from Phakding. 

The next day we trek from Phakding to Namche Bazaar, the biggest town in the Khumbu/Everest region. We will officially enter the Sagarmatha National Park today. Namche is also one of the very first viewpoints for Mt. Everest. We acclimatize for a day in Namche. Acclimatization at high altitudes reduces the risk of Acute Mountain sickness. Also, Namche is a stunningly beautiful town and acclimatization day will be spent exploring the town. 

We trek to Tengboche the next day, it is also the next best place for Mt. Everest’s views and is situated at 3,867m. Tengboche Monastery, the biggest in Khumbu region,  is the center of attraction at Tengboche. We also enjoy the views of Mt. Everest, Tawache, Nuptse,Lhotse, Ama Dablam and Thamserku among other mountains of the Khumbu Himalayan panorama. The Everest View Trek is a 10-day-long beautiful journey in the Everest region; it features cultural encounters with the Sherpa people and a look into Buddhism in the region, stunning panoramic mountain views and a great deal of flora and fauna. 

This is an ideal trek for anyone who wishes to bask in the natural and cultural beauty of Nepal and its Himalaya, Mount Everest in particular.  Adventure Club  Trek offers a number of treks that take you to the Everest region. Join us in our Everest Base Camp-16 Days 13 and 14 Days also available) or Everest Base Camp Trek with Three High

  • Day 02: Kathmandu: Sightseeing and trek preparation

    Today, we go on a sightseeing tour of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the city. We start the program after breakfast, first visiting the sacred Hindu temple of Pashupatinath. Though non-Hindus are not allowed inside the main premises of the temple we are allowed to visit the cremation site and surrounding areas. We then head to Boudhanath, considered one of the largest stupas in Asia due to the massive mandala that surrounds the main dome. The smell of Himalayan incense and locals doing kora(making clockwise rounds of the stupa) gives you a little insight into Buddhist culture. Our next stop is Swayambhunath also known as the Monkey Temple, located on top of a hill. The stupa is similar to Boudhanath, but here the stupa is surrounded by many temples and shrines. Some of the temples date back to the medieval Lichchhavi period. Our final stop is Kathmandu Durbar square which is a fine example of Newari architecture. The premises of the Durbar square house many temples and royal palaces, however, most of the temples and building were destroyed by the 2015 earthquake and are being renovated.

    Everything about our trip and hike to Tengboche Monastery was perfect


    My wife and I flew from Kathmandu to Lukla and hiked to Tengboche Monastery. Adventure Club Treks organized everything perfectly including transport to the airport, flight, guide, porter, lodging, and food. It was the experience of a lifetime and I highly recommend Adventure Club Treks.

    Birendra & his team helped me alot to have a smooth trip


    (Bavaria), GermanyI've been to Nepal a while ago, and Birendra & his team helped me alot to have a smooth trip. They booked flights for me, organized my slot in a trip to Tibet, gave a lot of helpful advice, etc. To make it short: If you are in Thamel and need someone to help you get things sorted out, I can only recommend coming here!

Flight Delay in Kathmandu and Lukla

The unpredictability of the weather in mountain areas directly affects the flights to and from Lukla. The Twin Otter planes that are used for transport from and to Lukla are reasonably reliable in good weather conditions. But, the flights may be delayed or canceled due to technical problems and extreme weather conditions.To ensure you stay on your schedule in case the Twin Otter flight cancels or delays too far, we can charter you a helicopter. While the helicopter can fly at the visibility of 15,000m, the Twin Otters require 5,000m visibility, according to Nepal Civil Aviation rules.

You can pay for the helicopter in US cash, credit cards or traveler’ cheques directly to our Kathmandu office. We provide a receipt for the payment which you can present to claim the amount back from your travel insurance company. Helicopter charges range from a minimum of US$500 to a maximum of US$3500. Also, we recommend you land in Kathmandu a day before we start the trek. You have enough time to buy trekking gears and beat off the jet lag. Having a few days extra left after your trek is also an excellent way to ensure you don’t miss your international flight in case of difficulties during the trek which might lengthen your trip. It also gives you a way to beat the flight cancellation to or from Lukla in case of severe weather.

Note: Your safety is of the utmost concern whilst you are traveling with Adventure Club Trek. We will make every effort possible to follow the original itinerary but we reserve the right to change that itinerary if a segment of it becomes a safety issue. Certain mountain regions are remote, natural disasters can happen, weather conditions can decline and there can be illness or an injury. To avoid dangerous situations we may occasionally have to make changes to the itinerary to ensure everyone’s safety. That having been said, Adventure Club Trek will strive to provide you with the best possible trekking experience and to keep your safety our number one priority. In case, the flight delay/cancellation happens at the start of the trip and it goes so long that it disturbs your onward travel schedule, you are free to choose an alternative trip: such a trek in the Annapurna, Langtang, or any other regions.

Pre-Trip Meeting

Prior to all the treks and expeditions, Adventure Club Trek hosts a pre-trip meeting in Kathmandu. The primary purpose of the meeting is to provide an opportunity for individuals to ask questions about the forthcoming trek and to introduce other team members. The meeting covers topics as diverse as personal equipment and acclimatization and usually involves a hike and some skills training. Pre-trip meeting is very important in order to have a better preparation of the trekking.
