The Everest View Trek is perfect for those with less time or who don’t want to have too arduous trek. Despite this, Everest View 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, Everest Panorama Trekking runs 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.
