Everest View Trekking

Whilst for many a visit to the foot of Mount Everest is a personal goal, for some it is enough to visit the Everest or Khumbu region and experience the life style of the Sherpa people, their culture, witness and the spectacular scenery. The Everest View Trekking is shorter in duration than the Everest base camp trek with the famous Thyangboche Monastery at 3870m being the highest point.

Everest View Trek is especially designed for those who wish to explore this region without ascending to high altitude. Entry to the Everest region is accessible by air into the airstrip at Lukla, and from here we follow the route up to Tengboche monastery via Namche bazaar. From here we can observe breathtaking views of Mt.Everest as it rises above the Lhotse-Nuptse ridge, as well as a superb view of one of Nepal's most beautiful mountains, Ama Dablam - the 'Matterhorn of the Khumbu'. After visiting to Thyangboche Monastery retern to Lukla by a slightly different route via Khumjung.

Everest View Treks is a short but classic trek which allows access to the most spectacular mountain views in the world in a shorter time frame. Accommodation and food is available in the local lodges. Clients often extend Everest view trip to two full weeks by taking a rafting trip or a visit to Chitwan National Park
