Trip Overview

Everest Panorama Trek is the perfect way to get on the lap of Mount Everest. This short Everest hiking trip offers the proximity of majestic Himalaya and its glory. The close-up view of the world’s highest snow-capped peaks Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Thamserku, Mt. Amadablam and many more makes the journey more thrilling. This is also an opportunity to experience the intensive lifestyle of the Sherpa community surrounded by fluttering prayer flags and glistening peaks. This itinerary has been designed keeping in mind for the one who comes with limited days of vacation but has keen interest to experience the mighty Everest. The main mission of this trek is to introduce the Sherpa culture and lifestyle along with fine mountain views. If you are the novice trekker, then this will be a perfect choice.

Everest Panorama Trek begins after a 30min scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla leads you all the half way to EBC. The route follows Dudh Koshi valley and reaches to Namche Bazaar passing by Phakding and Manjo. The acclimatization and exploration day allow you to hike around and visit the National park museum. The hike further up to famous Tengboche monastery gives a chance of witnessing Tibetan Buddhism and its vastness. Tengboche is rewarded with the 360* views snow-covered mountains like Everest, Lhotse, Kangtega, Tawache and Ama Dablam. Next, the trek resumes towards Khumjung and Khunde, the green hidden villages in the mountain valley. We also explore Kunde hospital and Khumjung School, which are supported by the Sir Edmund Hillary Foundation. A glance of Yeti scalp inside the Khumjung monastery will add more fun on the journey. Hiking to Thame keeps you away from the crowd of travelers in Everest region. Two days easy downhill walk will bring you back to Lukla to catch an early morning flight to Kathmandu.

Trip Highlights

  • Scenic mountain flight to and from Lukla
  • A closer look to ethnic Sherpa community, their lifestyle and culture
  • Visiting Tengboche Monastery
  • Inspiring views of Himalaya including Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Mt. Amadablam and other many snowy peaks

Everest Panorama Trek
Rene Vermeulen, Nederlands

 

I did the FEB 2017 Everest Panorama Trek with Amazing Nepal Trek and, and it was one of the best and most memorable experiences of my life! I spent a lot of time researching the trek and decided it was best to do it with a locally owned guide company, instead of a foreign owned one so the money stays in this country! Leading up to the trip, the Manager Santosh was beyond helpful and a great communicator. I knew I was in good hands from the very start. During the trek my guide Raju was outstanding. Always paying attention to my health and safety, while providing a high level of service and education. He was also a great companion during a solo trek, making me feel right at home in Nepal. From the beginning to end, Amazing Nepal Trek and Expedition provided top notch service. I would recommend them (and already have) to any family member or friend who wants to trek in Nepal.
