Leaving the bustle of modern cities, you'll embark on an adventurous journey that explores remote mountain villages, lush forests, and rich Sherpa culture. The Everest view trekking lets you enjoy the views of the Himalayan mountains like Mt. Everest (8,849 m), Mt. Lhotse (8,516 m), Mt. Nuptse (7,861 m), Mt. Ama Dablam (6,812 m), Mt. Khumbila (5,761 m), Mt. Thamserku (6,608 m), Mt. Chamlang (7,319 m), Kongde Ri (6,187 m), etc.

Along the trail, you will witness gorgeous scenery and come across numerous stupas, chortens, mani walls, etc. The Everest view trek routes cross many suspension bridges and pass by lovely waterfalls. The fresh air of the mountains and the warm hospitality of the locals will win your heart.

You explore the Hotel Everest View (3,962 m), Syangboche Airstrip (3,748 m), and Khumjung monastery (3,790 m) during your acclimatization in Namche Bazaar (3,440 m). Further, walking through lush rhododendron and magnolia forests, you reach Tengboche village (3,860 m), the final destination of the Everest view trek 10 days.

Is this trip right for you?

Everest view trekking is one of the easiest treks in the Everest region. Below are the things that will help you determine whether this trek is the ideal one for you or not:

  • If you are looking for a short journey in the Khumbu region.
  • If you are in search of an easy trek that offers stunning Himalayan mountain views, including Everest.
  • If you love nature and want to witness the heavenly beauty of the Himalayas but couldn't go on a trek to EBC because of time limitations, health issues, etc.
  • You can walk 5 to 6 hours a day.
  • You admire flora, fauna & Sherpa culture.

Difficulty & altitude sickness

Everest view trek is an easy trek. For a beginner trekker, some steep parts of the trail and long walking hours can get a little tough. Otherwise, Everest view trekking is recommended for novice trekkers. The trail has good moderation of gentle and rough paths. You'll be spending seven days trekking through lush forests and living a simple life.

Everest view trek 10 days touches the high altitude of 3,962 meters. Given the altitude, there are sheer risks of altitude sickness. We'll try our best to acclimatize to the elevation properly and take all the precautions. Compared to the EBC trek, the chances are pretty low. Still don't let your guard down because you never know how your body will react to drastic changes in altitude.


Trekking in the Himalayas requires a certain level of physical and mental preparation. Given the difficulty and remoteness of the region you are trekking to, the preparation differs. For Everest panorama trekking, you have to do the following things:

  • Body: You do not need to do anything specific to train your body. Regular experience and walking are sufficient. If you can do activities like swimming, cycling, jogging, hiking, etc that will involve your cardio and build your stamina & core strength.
  • Mind: Preparing your mind involves getting it ready to be okay with basic accommodation and limited facilities in the mountains. You have to adjust to a new and very simple palate & lifestyle for a few days. Services like internet, hot shower, charging, etc get scarce and expensive.
  • Packing: We will give you a packing list for the Everest view trek. Follow the guidelines and buy your trekking clothes. You'll have ample time to buy/rent trekking necessities in Thamel, so no need to carry everything with you. A few things that you cannot forget at any cost are your medications (if needed & inform us too), extra Nepali cash, documents, reusable water bottle, comfortable trekking boots, etc.
  • Travel Insurance: Travel insurance is very important while traveling in the Himalayas. Given the high altitude and nature of the area, there can be unseen events that might require emergency evacuation or medical assistance. Events like that are rare, but it's better to be safe than sorry.

First of all, you customize the Everest view trek itinerary. If your budget allows, you can upgrade it to a luxury package or include a helicopter tour of EBC at the end of the trek. We also have a 5 days Everest short trek that you can check out.

    Best Time

    Everest view trek goes up to Tengboche village. The ascend is not that much, and the trail has no high risk of blockage, so one can do this trek in spring, autumn, and winter. Winter season does bring high chances of Kathmandu Lukla flight cancellation because of unstable weather, but if you are well prepared and have a couple of contingency days in hand, you can do Everest view trekking in winter too.

    By every means, spring and autumn are the best times to trek in the Everest region. The trail is exceptionally pretty in the spring because of all the teeming vegetation and flowers. Likewise, autumn has a great sense of festivity and holidays in it. The mountain views are phenomenal in both seasons, and the trail is bustled with travelers from all around the world.


    This is a 10 day trek to Tengboche village. The Everest Panorama trek begins with your arrival in Kathmandu and a flight to Lukla airport the next day. The trail descends to Phakding village, crossing many suspension bridges and remote villages. From here, you'll walk up to Monjo and enter Sagarmatha National Park. It is a forested trail, and ascends along the rough hillside to Namche Bazaar.

    You'll spend a rest day in Namche Bazaar, exploring the village and going on a hike to Hotel Everest View & Khumjung Monastery. From here, we finally ascend to Tengboche village and welcome us with a fantastic sight of Ama Dablam. Spend a night here and then retrace the path back to Lukla, where the trek ends and fly to Kathmandu.


    You stay overnight in well-maintained lodges during the Everest view trekking. The rooms are shared between two trekkers. Each trekker gets a separate bed and blankets. The room will be small but comfortable to spend the night in. The washroom may be common or private, depending upon the lodge.

    In Kathmandu, we will book a nice three-star hotel for our guests. All the amenities, with free wifi and a private washroom will be available in the room.


    The meals during the trek are delicious. You have a variety of options like pizza, burger, sandwich, pasta, momo, noodles, steak, etc, or you can stick to our staple dal bhat menu. Dal bhat is the best option in the mountains. It is healthy, tastes amazing, filling, and pocket friendly.

    Well, it is up to you and your taste. At least try consuming less meat or no meat if possible while trekking because meats in the mountains are mostly frozen and may get you an upset stomach. Likewise, many types of beverages are available, along with boiled drinking water.
