Everest View Trek

Everest View Trek - 12 Days

INTRODUCTION

True to its name, the Everest View Trek is all about the Everest panorama. We begin our 12-day trip in Kathmandu with visits to UNESCO World Heritage Sites before heading to the most coveted region in Nepal. On our trek, we also reach the Tengboche Gumba which is situated at 3,867 m and is the largest monastery in the Khumbu region of Nepal. From here, the panoramic views of the Himalayas of Nepal including Tawache, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku and Everest are ours to admire.

The Everest View Trek features a wide range of panoramic mountain scenery of Nepal combined with unique cultural encounters with the Sherpa people and their rich culture which is closely tied to Buddhism. This trek is ideal for anyone who wishes to enjoy the surreal beauty of the Nepalese Himalayas and Everest in particular while also enjoying an easy trek.
