Everest view trek in Nepal is something more than the sum total of experiencing mountains from a close distance. The Everest mini trekking of 7 days starts from Kathmandu to Lukla after a 30-minute flight and reaches maximum up to Tengboche Monastery including a German bakery shop. Nevertheless, it helps to understand the culture of Sherpas’ (mountain people) who have inhabited the region since the time of yore. You can explore the site and get acquainted with many Sherpas in the region. It is a trekking that combines natural beauty with the culture of the region. The fascinating beauty of Khumjung and memorable meetings with legendary Sherpa people will make the trip more meaningful. They are expert mountaineering people without who the Everest expedition is almost impossible. Due to genetic reasons, Sherpa can easily adjust to such an altitude.

Some of these adaptations include unique Hemoglobin and doubled nitric oxide production. Everest View Trek starts from Lukla - a 30-minute flight from Kathmandu. Landing at this tiny airstrip, the adventure really begins. During the trek, 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 neighboring 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 acclimatizing. Everest View Trek gives a chance to see the best view of the Everest Region from Syngboche, where there is a luxurious hotel called Everest View Hotel. This place is famous for Everest View from distance and provides some local villages sightseeing in Mountain.

Health and Physical Fitness Required for Everest View Trekking

As we all know, trekking is somehow a challenge. We won’t say the trek route will be easy because it's not easy as walking in a straight path. So for trekking, a person's health and physical fitness are necessary. As we hike from low land to high land, it's better to be fit both physically and mentally. Every day, we will hike 4 to 5 hours approximately so it is better to be prepared for that. So to make this view trek to Everest a bit easy, you can do some pre-training course regarding some physical activities like jogging, climbing, stair-case walking, running, swimming, etc. Your health is very important so it better to do a regular whole body check-up before the trek and act according to the doctor's prescription.

Everest View Trek Difficulty

Everest View Trek is rated in moderate (and difficult in some places) level of trekking. The first half of the trek is easy and moderate but the second half of the trek is slightly difficult (i.e. Namche Bazar). Some of the trail (up to Namche bazaar) is rocky, steep and sloppy. But during the trial, it's easy to trek but some trails (from Namche Bazaar to Tengboche) are moderate to difficult as the trail is sloppy to the steep. Sometimes, the weather also affects the difficulty level of trekking. So maintaining your pace and packing wisely and lightly will help in trekking easily.

Best Season for Everest View Trek

There are four seasons in the Everest Region and in the whole country – summer, winter, autumn, and spring. Autumn and spring are the most popular for trekking in the Everest region as moderate sunshine and low rainfall make this season favorite for trekkers. If you are trekking in summer (monsoon), there is the possibilities of rainfall and can experience an accidental slip in wet trails. In winter, trekking might be tricky for new trekkers as they would not have been familiar with the coldness of the Everest Region. Also, some trails might be closed due to heavy snowfall as the temperature might get low to -25 degrees.

    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. 

      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 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.

        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.

          On this day, we have breakfast in Namche Bazaar and start trekking towards Everest Base Camp. The view of the Himalayas like Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, and Kwangde are the views which are not to be missed. After the more uphill trek, through the seriously steep ground, we reach our destination, Tengboche. Tengboche is known as one of the most beautiful places in the Everest region. The view of Ama Dablam from here is legendary. We'll stop on the Tengboche monastery which is one of the largest, most famous and beautiful in Khumbu. 

            Following a similar trail through a forest of juniper, rhododendron, we head towards Monjo. We pass the steep descent crossing the Bhote Koshi River. Following the river bank, we reach Jorsale. Furthermore, stroll forward leads to Monjo. Stay overnight at Monjo.

              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.

                In the morning we transfer to the small airfield for the return flight back to Kathmandu. We will transfer you to your hotel, arriving before lunch, and have the rest of the day at leisure.

                Trekking Guides and Porters

                For the Everest view trek, there will be one guide and a porter (1 porter for 2 trekkers). The guide and porter would be with you supporting throughout the journey and giving the information about the trek.

                Accommodation on Everest View Trek

                Throughout the Everest View Trek, we use teahouses for lodging (accommodation). We go from teahouse to teahouse and stop overnight on the trail. The tea house is a small hotel in the local village which provides both lodging and food. Their rooms have two single beds with a pillow and a warm and nice blanket. Separate toilets/bathrooms are not available so we have to use the common ones. Toilets are built especially with western styled furnishing. In the Everest region, they usually have running cold water. In some cases, there is a possibility of getting a separate room after paying extra charges but in a busy time of the year, it is impossible to get a private room because of the limited amount of lodging available in the place. For the shower, in lower elevation hot shower are available but in higher elevation, they provide a bucket of hot water with extra charges.

                Meals During the Everest View Trek

                During the trek, breakfasts would be served in the tea house or lodge where we spent the night, lunch would be served on the way to destination and dinner would be served on the teahouse where we would spend the night. The food would be served as per their menu. The menu may be a typical Nepalese food, or other international cuisines like Tibetan, Italian or Indian. In Kathmandu, you will be served a welcome dinner, a farewell dinner, and breakfasts.

                Drinking water during Everest View Trek

                Normally, natural spring water is available for drinking water during Everest View Trekking. You can either drink the water from natural spring after purifying with water purifying tablets. You can buy mineral bottle water en-route too. Buying a new water bottle can a bit expensive in the upper region than in the lower region. You can also refill the water bottle in some tea houses but they may charge for it. Water refilling cost is lower than buying the new one. The best option is to carry water purifying tablets, so you can refill your bottle and use the purifier before drinking.

                Clothes for Everest View Trek

                Some of the essential clothes recommended for Everest View Trek are:

                • For Head: Sun hat, warm hat or scarf

                Altitude Sickness

                Altitude sickness is generally caused by the low amount of oxygen in the high altitude area. The symptoms of altitude sickness are headaches, nausea or vomiting, fatigue, loss of sleep, disorientation, etc. There is a high chance of having altitude sickness during this trek as the sickness typically occurs over 2500m, although, some may suffer from the sickness below the height of 2500m. The sickness may further lead to acute mountain sickness (AMS), high altitude cerebral edema (HACE), or high altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE). The sicknesses are further explained below:

                Acute Mountain Sickness

                The AMS is a sickness often known as a breathing problem followed by a headache, nausea, fatigue, poor appetite, dizziness, poor sleep, etc. For prevention of the sickness, the trekkers should stay at a place with a lower height for 1-2 days to acclimatize or use Diamox (250mg) every 12 hours.

                HACE (High Altitude Cerebral Edema)

                It is the medical condition where brain swells with fluid, caused after acute mountain sickness. It is a dangerous sickness as it directly effects one’s brain and can take one’s life. The main symptoms include disorientation, lethargy, loss of coordination, memory loss, psychotic behavior, etc., other general symptoms include nausea, vomiting, headache, etc.

                HAPE (High Altitude Pulmonary Edema)

                It is the medical condition where swelling occurs in the lungs. It is also a life-threatening disease for the mountaineers with below-average health condition. The main symptoms of hape include a persistent cough, chest tightness, frothy sputum, suffocation during sleep, headache, blue skin coloration, rapid breathing, etc.

                Preventive Measures

                The sickness may sometimes be life-threatening so it is better to take some preventive measures before the trek.  Some of the preventive measures for the altitude sickness are listed below:

                • Gain elevation slowly over days
                • Drink enough water
                • Avoid alcohol
                • Avoid smoking
                • Eat light but high-calorie diet
                • Health checkup before 6 months from the trek
                • Keep hands and legs as dry as possible
                • Warm clothes to prevent cold
                • Good to consult physician during periods
                Frequently Asked Questions

                • During this Everest View Trek, some of the tea houses that we stay on may provide laundry facilities after paying a certain amount of money. The cost may be awfully higher. But it is better to pack enough and do your laundry after returning back to cities from the trek.

                • The lower trail of this view trek to Everest provides hot water for shower. But in a higher trial, you have to pay an extra amount for the hot shower. They will provide you a bucket of warm water after paying for it but it’s worthy after a long day of trekking.

                  Perfect View Trek to Everest

                  The Everest view trek is a small but sweet trek around the Everest. I took the trek with a friend of mine and it was simply awesome. With a few days to spare, we headed to Lukla where we had astonishing adventure and star gazing night. The local people and their respectful tone made the trek more remarkable. The view of Everest was something greater pleasure to the eyes. The rocky trails and snow-capped mountains will leave you just breathless. The trail with natural sightseeing is a spectacular panorama. I am thankful to the Nepal Trek Adventures Team for recommending me this trek and supporting me to accomplish it thoroughly. I highly recommend this Everest view trek and the NTA team to all the Himalayan lovers.

                  Delicious Food during Everest View Trek

                  I just love traveling and nature is my weakness. With little time on hand and only 7 days in Nepal, I decided to visit the Everest region. From Lukla to Namche, every local delicacy was my favorite. From the famous Dal Bhat (local Nepali food) to a chocolate cake (and pancakes) in a German bakery in Tengboche; every food was delicious and lip-smacking. Nepal Trek Adventures suggested a great trip for my time in Nepal and they fulfilled what they had promised. I loved the place and the hotels along this trek route! I enjoyed all those quiet and peaceful adventure tracks in this Everest View Trek Route having every delicious food throughout this Mountain journey. Highly recommended, both the Everest View Trek and Nepal Trek Adventures Team!
