Everest Panorama Trek

Everest panorama Trek, although relatively easy compared to some of other treks, takes you up high along trails to Tengboche Monastery (3850m). This is a short trek but very scenic trek offers really superb view of the world’s highest peaks, including Everest, Lhotse, Thamserku, Ama Dablam and other many snowy peaks.

Visiting a succession of Sherpa villages, surrounded by fluttering prayer flags and glistening snow-capped peaks, the popular myth of ‘Shangri La’ will seem all-too-real. This trek definitely gives a great introduction to Sherpa lifestyle, country culture along with fine mountain views. For first time trekkers to Nepal, this is a popular destination. Suited for those people who haven’t had enough time for a longer trek into the high mountains.

We fly from Kathmandu to Lukla airstrip in the Khumbu region and trek up to Namche Bazar, Tyangboche (famous for its monastery) and into the Khumjung village, a very nice settlement of Sherpas people. This trek is a great introduction to Sherpa country and its culture with great mountain views, a very popular destination for first time trekkers in Nepal. This trek is best suited for those who do not have enough time for longer treks into the high mountains.

Upon your arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu, our company representative will meet and welcome you to Nepal and then you'll be transferred to your confirmed hotel.

Later you will be accompained by the office staff for a short tour of Thamel to make you familiar with some good restaurants, ATMs, money changer and other necessary places you might need during your stay in Thamel.

After morning breakfast Wongchhu Peak Promotion will introduce you with your tour guide and he will pick you from respective hotel for an interesting tour of Swayambhunath Stupa located on a hill top, with fabulous views of Kathmandu city, green hills that surrounds the valley and of high snow capped mountains.

Swayambhunath one of the oldest historical sites listed in world heritage of more than 2,5000 years old Buddhistreligious complex with huge dome shape stupa with four mystical eyes of Buddha overlooking four directions North, South, East and West. After an impressive tour visiting the monastery and small chapels this place surrounded with green forest with many monkeys around and this place is also known as “Monkey Temple”.

Finally, day ends with a Authentic Nepalese Dinner in Nepali Cultural Restaurant.

The next day, you need to be well prepared for the trek. Flight leave at the crack of dawn from Kathmandu domestic airport and check-in is even earlier. Lukla is situated at the altitude of 2880m you need to get to the domestic airport of Kathmandu in order to fly to the Lukla. It takes around 35 to 40 minute flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. After such a literally breathtaking flight, it is pretty normal to feel slightly fuzzy in the head on arrival in Lukla. Most people take tea, a second breakfast or lunch before setting out.

There is no great rush to reach Phakding. The trek can be done in 4 hours or so. The trail passes through Choplung (2660m) and Nachi Pang, with its magnificent view of the snowy peak of Kusum Kanguru. The sprawling village of Ghat has a small monastery. Phakding village has lodges on either bank of the Dudh Koshi. Phakding monastery, high above on the west side, is best visited on the return to Lukla . Overnight in Lodge.

 

In the fourth Day, early in the morning after having breakfast you will have a walk through a magnificent forest of Rhododendron with unimaginable views of the river side. From Phakding the trail climbs and contours through pleasant pine forest. The next village, Bengkar (2630m), is well known for its apple pies. The route climbs to Monjo (2835m) and the entry check post for the Sagarmatha National Park. From Jorsale (2740m) it’s all up, with a glimpse of Everest as the trail climbs to Namche (3440m).

This beautiful trek will take around 5/6 hours from Phakding and end at Namche Bazaar. This is normally one of the harder days on the trek, not because of the particularly different terrain, but because it’s the first critical day in which altitude plays a part. Overnight in Lodge.

Everyone should take a rest day in Namche to adjust to the altitude. Namche Bazaar is a very famous place for sight-seeing of Mt. Everest and all Himalayan ranges as well as wonderful sunrise and sunset, not only that it is also famous for a local museum. So early in the morning after having breakfast you will walk around one and a half hour to have a wonderful Everest view and sunrise. After a few hours back to the hotel you will take some rest.

There are several routes from Namche to Tengboche. The next trek destination is to Tengboche and it takes almost 5-6 hours to reach the destination.

Crossing on yet another suspension bridge, we climb up the opposite side of the valley to reach the contouring path leading back through Namche Bazaar. A steep descent for down Namche Hill leads to the suspension bridge crossing the Dudh Kosi River and the small village of Monjo. Not only is Monjo a quieter place to stay than Namche, it also means our porters have a less strenuous walk back to Lukla tomorrow. Over night in Monjo.

 

Retracing our steps along the east bank of the Dudh Kosi we make our final ascent down to Lukla, arriving sometime in the middle of the afternoon, affording ample time to relax and enjoy the feeling of a job well done. Lukla itself is a thriving community that is an eclectic mix of Sherpas, trekkers and soldiers and makes for a fascinating place to explore at the end of the trek. Overnight in Lukla. 

 

After having breakfast we head toward airport for our flights. The terminal building is extremely cold; drinks and snacks are limited. The flight is exciting – once you have taken after off hurtling down into the void. After the plane has missed the hillside below Number Peak and dodged over the lamjura pass , it’s on to Kathmandu. Then you will be picked by Wongchhu Peak Promotion representatives at Domestic airport. Overnight in Hotel.

 

Leisure day at Kathmandu followed by farewell dinner & celebration. Leisure day at Kathmandu followed by farewell dinner & celebration. You can ask your guide to take you on a sightseeing trip inside Kathmandu Valley.
