Overview

Among all our trekking packages in the Everest region, the Everest panorama trek is the shortest and easiest one. We understand that not everyone can trek to Everest Base Camp, but that doesn't mean they don't want to explore the region. So, we created this 10-day short Everest trek that goes up to Tengboche village.

Our itinerary is not just a list of places you'll visit but a carefully curated journey that allows you to experience the adventure of the Everest region, stunning mountain vistas, and the unique culture of the Sherpa community. You will get to enjoy the famous Lukla flight and explore Namche Bazaar and Tengboche Monastery, immersing yourself in the rich traditions of the Sherpas.

Spend nights in Phakding, Namche Bazaar, Tengboche village, Monjo, and Lukla. The trail follows the Dudh Koshi River and takes you deep into the region via rhododendron forests. You will cross many suspension bridges on the way and get to see the lush vegetation of Sagarmatha National Park. The trekking route is dotted with small settlements and stupas.

You will see mountains like Everest (8,849 m/29,032 ft), Lhotse (8,516 m/27,940 ft), Nuptse (7,861 m/25,791 ft), Ama Dablam (6,812 m/22,349 ft), Thamserku (6,608 m/21,680 ft), Chamlang (7,319 m/7,319 ft), and many others during trekking. In Namche Bazaar, we have kept an acclimatization day, ensuring you are well-prepared for the altitude. So, you will be spending two nights here.

Hike to the Hotel Everest View from Namche Bazaar, where you will see the first clear view of Mount Everest. Likewise, you can also hike to Khumjung Monastery. The last settlement on the Everest panorama trekking route is Tengboche village. Here, you will explore the biggest monastery in the Khumbu region. Additionally, the mountain views of Everest and Ama Dablam are jaw-dropping from here.

What makes our Everest panorama trek itinerary more special is that you get one full day to spend in Kathmandu. Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, has a lot to offer. But sadly, tourists do not spend that much time exploring the city. Of course, one full day will not be enough to explore this city. However, you will get to visit a few tourist sites and also get time to do any last-minute shopping for the trek.

Everest panorama trek difficulty and altitude sickness

The Everest panorama trek stands out as a beginner-friendly trekking package in the Khumbu region, offering a unique experience for trekkers who prefer lower altitudes. With a manageable walking hour of 5 to 6 every day, this short itinerary ensures you can complete the trek without feeling overwhelmed.

The Everest panorama trekking is for all ages of trekkers. Previous trekking expertise is also not required. Make sure you are in good health and fitness. The trekking route goes through forests. You will cross suspension bridges. The terrain is rugged.

The trail from Phakding to Namche Bazaar is a bit demanding because of the steep uphill climb. Likewise, the risk of altitude sickness is comparatively low on this trek. If you keep yourself hydrated and maintain your pace, you can complete the trek without suffering from altitude sickness.

Recognizing the early signs of altitude sickness, such as vomiting, insomnia, headache, nausea, and difficulty in breathing, is crucial. If you experience these symptoms, inform your guide immediately and seek first aid to ensure your safety.

Everest panorama trek physical preparation

We have designed the Everest panorama trek 10 days to offer a relatively easy trekking program to foreigners in the Khumbu region. So, you do not have to do serious training for this trek. Regular walks and activities like swimming, cycling, running, etc, are good enough to improve your stamina and endurance.

Additional Info

Everest Panorama Trek Permit

You need two permits to do the Everest panorama trek. They are the Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality entrance permit & the Sagarmatha National Park entry permit. Both permits are included in our package cost.

  • Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality entrance permit cost: Nrs 2,000 per person
  • Sagarmatha National Park entry permit cost: Nrs 3,000 per person

The Best Time to do the Everest Panorama Trek:

The best time to do the Everest panorama trek is March to May and September to November. These are the pre- and post-monsoon times in Nepal when the weather in the Himalayas is stable for trekking. You will see breathtaking mountain panoramas because the sky remains clear.

The climate is warm during the daytime and cold at night and in the mornings. The lower part of the trail is bloomed with rhododendrons and other vegetation. Likewise, hundreds of avid trekkers visit the Everest region in these months, so the environment is quite joyful.

  • Everest panorama trek in winter (December to February)

Winter is one of the off-seasons for trekking in the Everest region. Because of unpredictable weather, the Lukla flight is frequently delayed and canceled. Likewise, it gets cold, and snow covers the trekking route. However, trekking up to Tengboche is very much doable in the winter season.

You only have to keep 1-2 contingency days in your itinerary in case the weather gets terrible and you have to miss your Lukla flight. The trails are empty, so you will enjoy the region's tranquility, and the prices of accommodations are also low.

  • Everest panorama trek in summer/monsoon (June to August)

Summer/monsoon is another off-season for Everest panorama trekking. The rainfall ruins the lower route. The trails are muddy and slippery. Likewise, the risk of landslides increases throughout the hills. You also have to deal with bugs and leeches.

On the other hand, the vegetation is thriving, and the lushness of the region is incredible. Fresh air, the soothing scent of nature, and gushing rivers and waterfalls make the scenery wonderful. You will also enjoy a tranquil trail and a low price on accommodation and other essentials.

Accommodation and Meals during the trek

The accommodation in the mountain is the lodge. Thanks to the commercialization of the EBC trail, both budget-friendly and luxury lodges are available. Our Everest panorama trek package includes a basic lodge, but you can upgrade the accommodation by paying additional money. You will get twin-shared rooms, so you are supposed to share the room with a fellow trekker. Single rooms are also available but cost extra money.

You will not have an issue getting Western-style toilets on the Everest panorama trek route. However, be open to using squat toilets. Services like charging, WiFi, and hot showers cost a few extra bucks. The last reliable ATM is available in Namche Bazaar, so have some Nepali currency on you for personal expenses.

Food is not a concern during the Everest panorama trek. You will be delighted by the wide range of food options available, from the classic dal bhat to woodfire pizza. Our Everest panorama trek package includes simple meals, but you are free to choose and buy whatever food you wish to have on your own.

Drinking water is readily available throughout the Everest panorama trek. You can get boiled water at a very cost-effective price of USD 1 to USD 2 per bottle, which is much cheaper than buying plastic water bottles. You can carry snacks for the journey. Buy in Kathmandu because everything is high in the mountains.

Travel insurance for the Everest panorama trek

For your safety, it's crucial to have travel insurance with helicopter evacuation and medical bill coverage when trekking in the Himalayas, including the Everest panorama trek. The Everest trail lacks roadways and hospitals, making helicopter evacuation necessary in case of serious illness or injury a necessity.

Apart from small medical care, you cannot receive any further assistance. If you get sick or injured during trekking and require extensive medical assistance, we must evacuate you in a helicopter to a hospital in Kathmandu. Travel insurance with rescue coverage will save you a lot of money and allow us to arrange the evacuation quickly.
