Everest View Trek is ever since the days of early climbing expeditions, Sagamartha (Everest) at 8,848m has had a lure of its own, drawing climbers to scale it and trekkers to gaze on its icy faces. The trek to base camp of the Mt. Everest has become one of the most popular trekking routes in Nepal, yet few people return from the trek unmoved by the experience of being right in among the highest peaks in the world.

The Everest View Trek starts from Lukla - a 30 min flight from Kathmandu. Landing at its tiny airstrip, the adventure really begins. During the trek trekking we spend several days passing through the homelands of the Sherpa people, their villages and Buddhist monasteries, with close up views of Mt. Everest and neighbouring Ama Dablam, considered by many to be among the most beautiful mountains in Nepal.

Much of Everest View Trek takes place at high altitude, and so we spend a few days at the beginning of the trek acclimatising. This is vital in order to ensure a successful trek. Everest View Trek gives a chance to see best view of Everest Region from Syngboche, where there is 5 star Hotel called Everest View Hotel. This place is famous for Everest View from far and provides some local villages sightseeing in Mountain.

Detail Itinerary

Day 01: Arrival in Kathmandu and transfer to hotel 

Day 02: Flight to Lukla - Trek to Phakding (2,610m)
Wake up early to watch the sunrise spectacularly down the first rays of the sun, firing the peaks a light, red slowly lighting of the Himalaya's from Kanchenjunga and Everest in the far east of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri in the West. Then to the airport. The short flight (30 min) is awe-inspiring as we fly parallel to the Himalayan giants bordering Nepal and Tibetan China. Upon arrival in Lukla, we will be met by our local guides and porters. There will be time to explore the village whilst the Sherpa crew sort and load equipment. Once ready, we start a short trek descending on a wide trail northwest to the village of Choblung in the Dudh Kosi Valley. The valley contains beautiful pine and rhododendron forest. The walking is easy and we follow the river's course, passing through the village of Ghat. After 3 hours we reach the village of Phakding. 

Day 03: Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3,535m)
From Phakding we head up valley on a busy trail, with porters from the lower Solu district in the south carrying supplies to Namche, and Sherpa's with their half yak,half cow beasts "Zopkio" taking trekking and climbing expedition equipment to the higher valleys. We continue along beside the Dudh Kosi through beautiful alpine scenery - fragrant blue pine and fir forest, glimpsing spectacular views of Kusum Kangru (6,369m) and Thanserku (6,608m) along the way. Crossing the Dudh Kosi again to the western bank at Jorsale, we make our way to the entrance to the Sagamartha (Everest) National Park. Continuing upstream along the banks to the meeting of the Bhote Kosi and Dudh Kosi, it is here we begin our first sustained ascent to Namche Bazar after crossing the large suspension bridge. Walking at a slow pace, we have a fantastic photographic opportunities as the peaks of Everest (8,848m), Lhotse (8,511m), Nuptse (7,879m), Arna Dablam (6,856m) and Taweche (6,542m) come into view for the first time. Climbing again, the path takes us through pine trees to reach the village of Namche Bazar.

Day 04: Acclimatisation day in Namche Bazaar
Today is an all important full day to rest and acclimatise. Namche is famous for its local market,as each week Sherpa's from the surrounding villages come to buy food and to socialise. Any food not grown locally, such as rice, corn and some vegetables is brought in from the lowland villages, which can be up to a 6-10 day walk from Namche Bazar. Rising early, those who climb to the ridge above Namche will be rewarded with the stunning dawn and sunrise over the panorama of the Khumbu peaks. In the afternoon you can walk along the Thami Valley, or visit the National Park Headquarters to see the interesting displays of Sherpa lifestyle and culture, mountaineering in the park, flora and fauna.

Day 05: Namche Bazaar to Khunjung
From Namche we trek out of the village and follow a small trail high above the Dudh Kosi River, where the views are incredible - behind to the west, the ridge of Nupla and Kwangde Himal (6,194m); across the valley to the south, the towering ice walls of Thamserku (6,623m), and to the east at the head of the valley, the Lhotse and Nuptse wall, towering a full 3,500m above the valley at Dingboche. Everest looms above the ridge, a black, triangular rock. Sagarmatha, "Goddess Mother of Earth", is a truly magnificent sight. On a small ridge across the valley, the monastery of Thyangboche can be seen, a small speck against the gigantic mountain background. We descend to Khunjung a small Sherpa village. Here tourism has hardly changed the life of the Sherpa's. Maybe you will take the opportunity to sample the Sherpa speciality, Riki Kur - a type of potato fritter enriched with yak butter. The afternoon is left free to assist with further acclimatization.

Day 06: Khunjung to Tengboche (3,850m)
In the morning we descend to the village of Shanasa and on to Trashinga where the trail drops steeply to cross the Dudh Kosi at Phukitenga (3,250m). In the late morning we climb steeply before the trail levels out to ascend gradually towards Tengboche. It is a steady ascent of approximately 2 ½ hours through pine fir, black juniper and rhododendron forest. Tengboche is set in a beautiful meadow, high on a ridge surrounded by towering Himalayan peaks. A peaceful, tranquil position the Thyangboche Monastery is a wonderful sight, spectacularly situated.

Day 07: Tengboche to Monjo (2,835m)
Following a similar trail through a forest of juniper, rhododendron. After lunch at Namche. Following a steep descent passing the Bhote Kosi, we cross the river and follow the bank to Jorsale, then on to Monjo.

Day 08: Monjo to Lukla
After breakfast we depart Monjo and continue our descent along the Dudh Kosi, before making a final ascent to reach the Lukla plateau. On arrival in Lukla we will have time to relax and celebrate the completion of our trek.

Day 09: Flight from Lukla to Kathmandu
