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.

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 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.
The following things are essential while trekking to Everest View Trek:
There are four seasons in the Everest Region and in the whole country – summer, winter, autumn, and spring.

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.

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.
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!
Who would have thought that I could take my kids to Everest? I and Sam (my 15-year-old) took the Everest View Trek for a short trek around the Everest. With no problems in our travel, we moved along the Everest region at a good pace and had fun trekking experience. Seeing the local people and their lifestyle, their foods and religion, I think it made me grow more as a person. My son seemed to have matured a bit and learned what life offers. I highly recommend this trek for anyone looking to visit the Everest region and the local lifestyle of Nepal and Nepalese. There isn’t much difficulty and the daily services were easily accessible. Nepal Trek Adventures team helped me a lot to plan and fix my travel experiences. For this, I am always grateful. Thumbs up!
The Everest up-close panorama is always a scene that has a lasting memory. From views of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Tawache from Namche to an up-close view of Ama Dablam in Tengboche everything was just perfect. The rocky trails and smiling people along the trail made the trek better and hearten light and calm feelings. Also, I didn’t have any difficulty to trek, as there was saying that it was so difficult to trek to the Everest region. All the effort was worthy and much more than expected though. Definitely, recommend this trek to anyone who is planning for a short trip around Everest! Thank you, NTA for arranging everything needed for us from flights to hotels to food; which was perfect and made the trek simple but lots more fun.
I was in Nepal for a short time and wanted to visit the Everest. Not much time available with me I wanted to see the region up close. So I made up my mind and contacted one of the trekking companies that I had collaborated with previously, Nepal Trek Adventures & Expedition. They suggested the Everest View Trek which was just perfect for the shorter time utilization on the Mount Everest Region. The short hiking from Namche to Tengboche passing along suspension bridges was the best part. The view of Ama Dablam and Mount Everest – the highest mountain in the world, was the greatest sight to see. Watching the local people and monastery is definitely something immense than expected. I recommend this Everest View Trek to all who want a pure short hike along the Everest Region of Nepal.
We left Nepal, but the journey to Nepal will remain in our minds forever. All thanks to binod for the easy environment he created for us. Among all the times spent in Nepal, the times spent with your team for Everest view trek was the best time. Thank you for making the tour fantastic and memorable. We enjoyed every time of Everest view trek despite of the bad weather we had to face. You made sure that we were comfortable in every situations. Im so glad that I had a company like you for the trek. Your team was the best we could have for this trek. Hope your business rise more and more in future.
Binod has made my stay in Nepal an amazing experience. Though I spent 4 months in this country before, I was still unknown about the places binod showed me. Binod has revealed the new aspects of Nepal which made my vacation unforgettable for lifetime. I’m so glad I chose Nepal trek adventure for the Everest view trek. The team was so friendly and supportive that all the difficulties in trek was handled smoothly. The leader for this trek was experienced so I got much knowledge about the place. Binod managed to provide such good team and services and im also satisfied with the price for this package. Im so glad to meet a friend like you. Hope to see you again. Thank you so much for everything.
The Everest view trek organized by Nepal Trek Adventures was superb. We enjoyed every bit of this tour for 7 days. The team of NTA made the Trek memorable for us. They were supportive at every time of the tour and provided us the services with no complaints. Though the trek was difficult at times, the team did everything to run the tour smoothly. Trip will last in our memory forever. We are sure you’ll shine in this tourism business. We highly recommend you for the Everest view trek tour to our friends and relatives. Thanks for taking care of us all the way from Kathmandu to Everest and back to Kathmandu again and thanks for your friendship as well.
Excellent is the only word to use! From the initial contact (via email) Binod and his team surpassed my expectations. He promised us the trip of a life time and that is what we got. In the past I have taken 'tailor made' tours that have been anything but!!! From the very first meeting Binod did everything within his power to make the trip run smoothly - whether it be regularly reviewing our plans and amending them to meet our needs, supplying us with a SIM card to make contact easy when we were touring, providing us with excellent, knowledgeable guides & drivers, changing money, being available 24/7 to answer questions - the list is endless. Nothing was too much trouble and any request was met with 'just give me a few minutes to see if that is possible' and Binod and his team always made it possible. We could only stay four days and Binod managed to plan a trip which gave us with everything on our wish list - the major sites in Kathmandu, white water rafting, flight over Everest, elephant safari, elephant bathing, jungle walk, kayaking and even some shopping...... We will visit again and we will use Binod and his team to give us our next adventure. I would recommend without any hesitation that anyone who is planning a trip to this beautiful country contact Binod. Thanks again Binod and hope to see you in October.
Binod and all his staff has treated me and my best friend a treatment like we are their relative--very warm and accommodating, starting the time that they waved their hands hello to welcome us in Kathmandu, from waving bye bye when we are about to go back to Colombia, giving in to all our wishes, treating us like queens from start to finish, sending us messages of good luck and asking us how our day of trekking has been. We never expected a package tour to be like this, we never felt so safe, it all felt like we were trekking along with our long-time friends! What is supposed to be only a best friend bucket list to travel outside country together, turned out to be a very unforgettable vacation with their sincerity, flexibility and warmth. We have so much to keep and tell even to our great great granddaughters. :) My first time trekking was a true success! Keep it up! inspire more and more nature lovers across the globe of the beauty of Nepal, and its true resource, their people-- including YOU guys. :)
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.
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.
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.
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.
Some of the essential clothes recommended for Everest View Trek are:
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:
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.
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.
