Everest View Trek features a beautiful collection of the sky touching silver mountains, rich flora and fauna while in the meantime encountering with the spiritually prosperous Sherpa land. 
Just as its name portrays, Everest View Trek is all about witnessing the panoramic view of the Himalayan giants including the world famous Mount Everest. It is a short and easy trip that is creatively designed to explore Everest's beauty and its unique culture, people and mountain vistas in the shortest period of time. If you are short in time or if you are unsure about committing to a long trek, whatever the reason might be for you to stopping yourself, Everest View Trek is a perfect trek option for you. This trek does not demand any type of physical fitness or previous experience, hence you get a plus point here as well. Even though this is a short trek, you will still get to trek to the most mesmerizing and popular places in the Everest Region are including Mt. Ama Dablam, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Kongde-Ri and Mt. Kusum Kanguru.

The very first encounter of your journey will be the capital city of Nepal, Kathmandu. This ancient exotic city holds a lot of history, culture, traditions, markets, and handicrafts. We begin our trek from a short yet beautiful scenic flight to Lukla (2860 m). After a half an hour flight to Lukla, passing through the stunning village, we make our way towards the heart of the Solu- Khumbu Region, Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO world heritage site that is home to rare flora and fauna. On our way to Namche Bazaar (3445m), the land of Sherpas, we pass through beautiful and dense pine forests, rhododendron flowers and wildlife abundance. We spend a day in Namche in order to get acclimatized to higher altitudes. After a day at Namche, the trek continues passing through the village of Tengboche (3860 m), home to the holiest and highest Buddhist monastery in the world. The place is famous for photographers who get an exceptional shot of the stunning view of Mt. Everest, Mt. Ama Dabalam and its neighboring peaks. The concluding days of Everest View Trek will be spent in the wonderful and scenic villages of Khunde (3840 m) and Khumjung where we will have an opportunity to interact with the local Sherpa people and participate in their remarkable traditional lifestyle. We then return back to Lukla from the same trail, enjoying the last views of the breath-taking Himalayan ranges and Everest.

The journey all in all is one amazing experience in the Himalayas in a very limited time. The trekkers get to explore the Everest Region and the rural lifestyle of its people. The most favorable season to go for Everest View Trek is in between mid-September to mid-December and between March to May.

Everest View Trek - itinerary

Day 01: Arrive at Kathmandu airport (1350m).
Upon your arrival at Kathmandu airport, you will meet one of our trek leaders who will be waiting for you in front of arrival terminal along with colorful garlands to welcome you. You will be escorted to your hotel where you will rest and relax for the day. In the evening one of our team leaders will take you for a welcome dinner at a typical Nepali Restaurant for you to enjoy the taste of the authentic Nepali food. Enjoy the local meal and you will be given a short briefing about the Everest base camp trek, after which you will be escorted back to your hotel.

Day 02: Fly from Kathmandu to Lukla (2860 m) | Trek to Phakding (2640 m) | 4 to 5 hrs trek.
We start our amazing trek with a short yet thrilling flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. After a half an hour scenic flight to Lukla, we descend upon the mountainside on the left bank of the Dudh Koshi River. Along the trail we will witness Mt. Nupla (5885 m) and on its opposite side lies the peak of the Kongde Ridge. From here, we descend along the mountainside path that meets the route to the Everest which offers a beautiful view of a scattered valley, to our right and KusumKangaru (6367m.), at its far end. We continue our path along a small path with many climbs and finally descent towards Phakding following the left bank of Dudh Koshi River. Stay overnight at lodge.

Day 03: Trek from Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3445 m) | 5 to 6 hrs trek.
The trail climbs up along the right bank crossing a stream and terraced hill from the Dudh Kodhi route to arrive at Bengar. The trail now climbs from the river bed on the left bank into the mountain, through a forest to Chumoa. The route consists of numerous ups and downs passing across scattered villages of Monjo. From here, we descend upon the path of stone steps and return to the right bank over a wooden bridge. As we depart from Jorsale we enter a forested mountainside. Following a short walk along the riverbed of this V-shaped valley where the river splits -  Dudh Koshi at its right and Bhote Kosi at its left, leads us to Nampa La. After a short distance along the Bhote Koshi, we begin the steep ascent to Namche Bazaar. As the mountain path zigzags uphill, we stop at a rest point that offers an excellent view of Mt. Everest (8848 m) and Mt. Lhotse (8516 m). As Namche Bazaar appears in front us, the trail eases up with smooth path surrounded by pines. Namche Bazaar is a trade hub for Sherpa people and is surrounded by mountain ranges on three sides and opens out only where it faces the Bhote Koshi. Stay overnight at lodge.

Day 04: Rest day at Namche and excursion Everest view hotel.
Namche is tucked away between two ridges amidst the giant peaks of the Khumbu. It is an ideal place to spend a rest day for acclimatization at the high altitude before heading off towards Tengboche. Even it is a rest day, we recommend you to not sit idle for the day and for that, we walk up to Khunde Hospital which was set-up by Sir Edmund Hillary and an hour walk up to the Sangboche (3800 m) where Everest View Hotel is situated. Everest View Hotel offers an outstanding view of Mt. Everest, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Ama Dablam, Mt. Thamserku and Mt. KusumKangaru. There are also good views from the National Park Centre and Museum just above the town which exhibits Sherpa culture. Stay overnight at lodge.

Day 05: Trek from Namche Bazaar to Tengboche (3860 m) | 5 to 6 hrs trek. 
As we leave the village for a climb to the top of a ridge and level mountain path, we get to view exceptional panoramic view of Mt. Thamserku, Mt. Kantega, and Mt. KusumKangaru. Only after a few steps up the mountain path, we will come to the fork leading to Gokyo. The long climb to Tengboche is encountered by a steep climb in the first half. As we pass through the densely forested zone, the climb eases and we come across a magnificent view of the snowy mountains. We continue climbing the mountainside diagonally until we come to the stone gate built by lamas which mark your entry into Tengboche (3860 m). We will most probably use the large plateau in front of the monastery as our campsite. There are a few lodge and hotel managed by the National Park Service in which we can stay for the night. Tengboche is an important lookout point on this trek and the sunset on Everest and Ama Dablam is the main highlight of the place. Stay overnight at lodge.

Day 06: Trek from Tengboche to Shanasa (3670 m) | 4 to 5 hrs trek.
After an early morning breakfast, we will head towards our first discovery of the day that is the Tengboche monastery and the nearby museum. In the afternoon, we retrace our steps downhill through the beautiful forest of juniper, rhododendron and fir to Phunkitenga. We walk slowly across the Dudh Koshi and we ascend steeply towards Trashinga. From here the trail descends high above the valley to Shanasa where we spend the night. Stay overnight at lodge.

Day 07: Trek from Shanasa to Monjo (2835 m) | 5 to 6 hrs trek.
The villages of Kunde and Khumjung are only a short trek off the main trail and are worth visiting for its rural ambience and fresh sceneries. Khumjung has a beautiful monastery and Kunde has a small hospital run by late Sir Edmund Hillary's Himalayan Trust and we will return to Namche via this route itself. The walk also heads past the Everest View Hotel and the Shyangboche airstrip before dropping into Namche, where we stop to have our lunch. In the afternoon, we descend steeply towards Jorsale along the river bank, continuing our walk to Monjo. Stay overnight at lodge.

Day 08: Trek from Monjo to Lukla (2860 m) | 4 to 5 hrs trek.
After an early morning light breakfast at Monjo, we re-trace our steps along the Dudh Koshi River, crossing the western bank at Benkar. Gentle steps through the blue pine and rhododendron forest, back-dropped with views of KusumKangaru makes the journey blissful. After an early lunch at Phakding in the afternoon, we ascend out of the river valley back to the airstrip. In the evening, a farewell dinner may be followed by a few celebratory drinks and a dancing night with the crew. Stay overnight at lodge.

Day 09: Fly back from Lukla to Kathmandu.
We head back to the Lukla airport after an early morning heavy breakfast to fly back to Kathmandu. You will then be transferred back to your hotel and you'll have the whole day to yourself until the evening. One of our team leaders will escort you in the evening and take you for a farewell dinner at an authentic Nepali restaurant to celebrate your accomplishment. Overnight at hotel.

Travel Insurances

Travelling is an investment and we believe that an insurance makes your investment secure. It is a condition of joining any of our adventure trips that be protected against comprehensive expenses potential to incur due to medial issues or accidents (to include helicopter rescue, air ambulance, and treatment costs). Please be noted that we do not arrange or sell insurance.

A relaxed trip is not possible without good travel insurance. In the event of any sickness or injury, the cost of emergency treatment and evacuation is shocking. Therefore, travel insurance is strongly recommended for everyone who signs up with us. We strongly recommend that you be careful while choosing a policy as some makes special exceptions for adventure travel. Before buying your insurance make sure your insurer is aware of our adventure itinerary that you are going to undertake and is agreeable to cover all activities being undertaken in the trip. Such as if you are planning trekking or climbing/expedition in Himalayas your insurance must cover emergency air ambulance/helicopter rescue including medical expenses. For a group tours in urban areas, your insurance coverage of ambulance or helicopter rescue is not mandatory, however better to have with them too. Again, in Tibet trips there is no possibility of helicopter rescue, so no need to buy the air ambulance coverage in Tibet trips. Also, check your insurance policy firmly to even include trip cancellation, as all deposits paid are non-refundable.

Please kindly provide us your copy of insurance policy (e.g. your insurance certificate) or carry it with you while you come on the trip.


Acclimatization

Alpine Eco Trek is professionals at operating at high-altitude. Each trip we run has a realistic acclimatization programme. Our entire adventure trips are designed to allow gradual height gain, spread over a number of days. High altitude is not predictable sickness, so there is no way of predicting who will suffer from altitude but, for the vast majority of people, a slow ascent to height will produce minimal effects. We can provide 'Gamow Bag' as a precautionary measure as per your request on renting basis. Acclimatizing takes time and there are no safe shortcuts. All trips to altitudes in excess of 3,000 meters carry medicines essential to the treatment of altitude sickness, and our leaders, guides and staffs are well trained to administer them and to know the symptoms.
