Anyone looking for a quick and simple climb in the Everest region of Nepal can consider doing the Mount Everest View Trek, also known as the Everest Panorama Trek. With this quick hike, it takes just eight days to fully experience Mount Everest's magnificence. The track is well-traveled and clearly marked.

The Everest mini trekking of 8 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 the Everest View Trek takes place at high altitudes, 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 on 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 for 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 courses regarding some physical activities like jogging, climbing, stair-case walking, running, swimming, etc. Your health is very important so it is 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 at a moderate (and difficult in some places) level of trekking. This Trek is less difficult than Everest Trek. 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 moderately to difficult as the trail is sloppy to 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.

Essential Things to carry during Everest View Trek

The following things are essential while trekking to Everest View Trek:

  • Day backpack with cover and thermal bottles
  • Trekking/Walking pole (if you need it)
  • Water purifying pills
  • Thick sleeping bag
  • Personal things like toothbrushes, paste, soap, shampoo, wipes, tissue paper, sanitizer, etc
  • Camera, cell phone and accessories, headlight, etc
  • First aid kits
  • Carry some cash as well

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 a favorite for trekkers.

If you are trekking in summer (monsoon), there is the possibility of rainfall and can experience an accidental slip on 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.

      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
      • For Hands: Lightweight and war gloves
      • For Body: down jackets, few hiking t-shirts, thermal tops, fleece jackets or sweater, poncho and rain jacket, light-weight cotton trekking pants

      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

        Everest View Trek with NTA

        As a solo traveller seeking my first Himalayan adventure, the Everest View Trek provided an exceptional introduction to this awe-inspiring mountain range. As soon as I set foot on the trail, a wave of excitement and anticipation swept over me. The breathtaking scenery that unfolded before my eyes during the journey—from lush forests to challenging mountain passes—mesmerized me. The remoteness of the trail allowed me to fully immerse myself in the magnificence of the Himalayas, and with each step, I felt a deeper bond with the natural world. Typically, it is not possible to travel alone in the Everest region due to the many challenges and divergent routes. As a result, I went with an NTA-provided expert guide. The guide was both amiable and well-informed. The individual furnished me with comprehensive information about the region, encompassing cultural and traditional rituals. I express my gratitude to the NTA for providing exceptional facilities and services.
