A short hike to Everest View Hotel is one of the most beautiful places to visit in the area, which has a wide range of scenic landscapes to offer.

Namche Bazaar, a hustling and bustling amphitheater-style town is situated in the Khumbu region, near Mt. Everest. It is undoubtedly one of the most stunning places in the world which offers awe-inspiring sights of the Mt. Everest range. The town is an unofficial capital of the Everest region of Nepal and is a gateway for trekkers and climbers heading to Mt. Everest base camp. Namche Bazaar, also known as the Sherpa land was once an important trading center between Tibet and Nepal.

Previously considered as a small developing town in the mountain region, now is a very popular trekking site among those adventure seekers who wish to spend their vacation in a peaceful place to escape from their daily life. This is a beautiful town with a handful of facilities. However, the guest house and lodges in the town are well-furnished and most of them have nice and cozy rooms with a facility of modern toilets and bathrooms. Also, banks, ATM machines, internet cafes, nightclubs, popular restaurants, and adventure gear shops are now available in Namche Bazaar. Since the town is the gateway to Everest base camp and the best place to acclimatize, the town is always crowded. People who are heading to Everest base camp or those who are returning back from Lukla, all tend to stop and enjoy a day roaming around the markets at Namche Bazaar.
