Everest View Trek

The Everest View Trek is perfect for those with less time or who don’t want to have too arduous a trek. Despite this, this trek still gets you into the very heart of the Everest Region and you won’t miss the main attractions – starting with the spectacular flight into Lukla airport. Trekking through alpine forests, along glacier-fed rivers, and through interesting villages, you will be spending time at Namche Bazaar. Here the accommodation is comfortable, the food is good and the people are friendly. There is an opportunity to visit Khumjung, where the first man to summit Everest, Sir Edmund Hillary, set up a school and later a hospital to give back to the spirited Sherpa people. We also visit Tengboche, the largest monastery in the area.

From here the views of the mountains - Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, and Thamserku - will take your breath away. Did you know, Namche Bazaar is the gateway to Sagamartha National Park? In this area, the snow leopard and red panda live, although they are extremely hard to spot. Will you be lucky enough to see one? Or perhaps you will be even luckier and see the mythical Yeti! Whatever happens, you will certainly meet lots of friendly Sherpas and witness spectacular mountain vistas.

  • Fly into high altitude Lukla airport
  • Spend time at Namche Bazaar
  • Be part of the Edmund Hillary story by visiting his school and hospital
  • Stare in awe at Mount Everest
  • Visit Tengboche, a Buddhist monastery
  • Great dinner conversation back home without (too many) aching muscles!

Before Departure Everest View Trek

Weather in Nepal
Normally weather can be divided into four different quarters through out the year, we would love to provide some more information details regarding weather condition and others which makes you easier to decide what shorts of clothing, equipment are necessary as well as wise to carry.
Spring – March to May
Second best season for Trekking in Nepal is from March to May, which is considered as spring season in Nepal. Just before rain hits trekking trail in Nepal during March to May Nepal used to be bloomed with rhododendron forest with clear blue sky. Especially base camps of eight thousanders used to get lots of crowd especially for expedition purpose, as weather is clear most of the time with suitable temperature for expedition. Average city temperature during March to May ranges as
Average Daily Temperature – Ranges from 24 to 28 (Degree Celsius)
Average Night Temperature – Ranges from 8 to 16 (Degree Celsius)
Rainy – June to August
Normally high mountain flights in Nepal used to get canceled during these periods because of poor visibility and rainfall. Heavy rainfall in lower alpine as well as frequent snowfall in high alpine region trekking is almost stopped during this trek. As chances are high for rock fall in alpine passes and closing of teahouses make more difficult too for treks. However city tour are still feasible with help of vehicles and for more adventure rafting as most to do list for extreme adventure.
Average Daily Temperature – Ranges from 21 to 24 (Degree Celsius)
Average Night Temperature – Ranges from 14 to 18 (Degree Celsius)
Winter – December to February
Extreme snowfall and low temperature is totally unfavorable for high alpine trek as most of the trails are blocked by heavy snow making almost impassable. Another major obstacles is closing of teahouses as during such periods of year most of the teahouses on start and end of passes. So either way you need to walk two days trail is same days but it is almost impossible so simple trekking in Ghorepani Poonhill, Nagarkot Chisapani are more feasible and attracts lot of people. City area and sightseeing are ok with freezing cold especially during morning and late night. Views are ok everyday with clear sky and snowy peak far beneath horizon. Do not forget to get winter clothes before you departure for Trip in Nepal.
Average Daily Temperature – Ranges from 19 to 20 (Degree Celsius)
Average Night Temperature – Ranges from 3 to 5 (Degree Celsius)
Fall – September to November
Right after monsoon is over sky is greeted by light blue color, one of the most favorable weather periods. Trekking trail are full of trekkers, hotel are sometimes overbooked everybody are busy with tour trekking stuffs, hard to get airlines ticket as well as bus ticket to major cities. Warm days snow free elevation even up to base camps. Be prepared in advance for all necessary booking and reservation stuffs as it is peak season all quality things are either booked in advance or might be busy. One of the best weather periods in Himalayas with average temperature as below
Average Daily Temperature – Ranges from 19 to 27 (Degree Celsius)
Average Night Temperature – Ranges from 8 to 17 (Degree Celsius)
As per arrival
As per arrival representative of NEST ADVENTURE will greet you in airport’s arrival terminal and shift to hotel in Thamel for first overnight stay in Nepal. For this you need to finish paper work inside arrival terminal in order to get Nepal Entry Visa, which is always arrival visa. So next day will be followed by sightseeing in Kathmandu and preparation of trek, introduction with crew member of trek and short pre-briefing of trek and continue trek starting from 3rd day of arrival in Nepal.
As per booked package either deluxe or budget we will arrange the hotel in Kathmandu accordingly on 3 star / 4 star of budget hotels, as well as accordingly in mountain too on twin sharing basis. As per available and booked we will provide attach bathroom and common bathroom on mountain. While sharing the room with fellow trekkers we will try to arrange for same gender and age group and if someone is looking for single supplement then let us know we will arrange accordingly and let you know the extra charge of single supplement. As well as sometime in mountain during peak season time hotel owner especially in high alpine area refuse to provide single supplement just for shake of business mostly because lack of plenty of rooms and monopoly to, so in such case we might need to adjust.
Meals and drinking water
Regarding the case of meals during city we provide accommodation on bed & breakfast basis so in Kathmandu we offer breakfast where lunch and dinner will be on your own as per your choice preference and selection of restaurant. In case of mountain area while trekking we offer three meals a day i.e. breakfast, lunch and dinner from free selection over menu as per available in lodges and tea houses in trekking trail. So normally in such trekking days you can consult with your guide regarding the specialty of dishes so that he can assure for the best-valued dishes. Wide range of food are available ranging from veg item to non-veg and other energetic stuffs like cheese, egg etc.
Regarding the case of drinking water normally bottled mineral water as available for purchase of very expensive almost 20 times expensive in last belt of Everest as bottle of mineral water sometimes cost Rs. 380-400 /- so it is better to carry water purification stuffs with you which can be utilized on purifying tap water as there are enough tap water in trekking area as well as hotels offer cold tap water free of cost.
Visa Requirement
Out of one visa year tourist visa can be obtained of maximum 90 days, which you can directly get as per arrival in international airport or can apply from your home country too but as per arrival will be fine too. It is recommend carrying accurate USD and don’t forget to bring two copies of passport size picture. Extension of visa from middle of stay in also possible for this process of visa extension all you need to do is fulfill form from website of immigration and submit it there with original passport copy. Multiple entry visas will be cheaper in case of money you can consult there directly.
International flight to Nepal
Nepal is easily accessible from entire word via flight, as we don’t deal with international flight ticket you can consult some other flight booking agencies for detail of cost, transit and other details. For your information no airport tax is applicable for international flight where as Nepali Rs. 200 is applicable for domestic flights which is equal to US $ 2 on basis of exchange rate of 1 USD equals Rs. 100 but sometime might get different by 0.10 / 0.20 USD on basis of exchange rate. Most of time especially in rainy season domestic flight gets canceled because of bad weather however it does not affect international schedules most of the time.
Currency and foreign exchange rate
In Nepal both coin as well as paper notes are in used however coin are of low value only. But regarding the case of paper note for day-to-day used are 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 500 & 1000. Do not worry about damaged paper note as it there exist clear number of currency on both side it is applicable, one can do anything with paper notes like squeezing, writing over it etc.
Since Nepal has fixed exchange rate with Indian currency exchange rate doe directly depend on value on Indian currency, now a day exchange rate of USD is 1 USD equals Rs. 95 in approximate, can check everyday over internet for current exchange rate. And for information about currency that are majorly accepted in Nepal are Indian currency, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, USD, AUD, CAD, GBP, Euro, Swiss Frank, Riyal etc.
Travel Insurance
Normally while walking in lower elevation steadily, taking enough acclimatization days we can avoid chance of acute mountain sickness however we cannot totally avoid mountain sickness instead we can lower the chance of occurrence by following some rules and paying lot attention for personal hygiene. Since the remote mountain area are not facilitated by motor roads and modern hospital so incase of strong mountain sickened one and only option is to descend as down as possible which is feasible with use of helicopters only. Such kind of expenses in high elevation area extremely off the edge and cannot be offered easily as sometime cost more than one million rupees, so it is better to have a personal health insurance. As we do not deal with such kind of health insurance but we do have good enough information about insurance providing company as some deal very quickly promptly for case where as some try to avoid and create some unnecessary delays in evacuation process. So as per need of information we will let you know some good provider from your region so that it will be easy in worse case in mountains.
High altitude sickness
Often known as acute mountain sickness are most dangerous things and any one can be victim of AMS apart from their physical strength. There is no such specific medicine for AMS so one needs to be careful from beginning. Major Symptom of AMS is dizziness, vomiting, nausea, and loss of appetite, weakness and insomnia so in order to rid of AMS major thing is to drink plenty of water and enough acclimatization in high alpine area. Although our crew leader will have adequate first aid medicine and kit sometimes one might need to cancel the trip and descend down in case of increasing symptom of AMS and in case of emergency situation clients will be airlifted immediately for further treatment in hospital at Kathmandu.
