  • Scenic mountain flight to Lukla and return
  • Exploring the tallest peak of the world Mt. Everest and many more striking Himalaya surroundings
  • Lush Sagarmatha National Park and its pristine flora & fauna
  • Preserved Tibetan Culture and warm hospitality of Sherpa people

The classic Everest View Trek, second only to Everest itself, takes you on a four-day journey into the Dudh Kosi River (Khumbu) Valley to gaze upon mountains such as Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, and Amadablam. The main viewing point is the Everest View Hotel close to Khumjung village. You’ll get there via Lukla, returning the same way to complete this once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

Lest you think Everest is the entire aim of the journey, know that getting there is just as exciting. You walk through lush valleys with extraordinary river views, cross suspension bridges, and appreciate the flora and fauna unique to Nepal.

Everest straddles Nepal and China. Despite the mighty mountain’s awesome reputation, the Everest View Trek is a short and fairly easy trail for this region. In addition to the landscape, scenery, culture, and hospitality of the area, you’ll have the opportunity to experience views of many other nearby peaks many over 8,000 meters.

Your journey begins towards Everest View Trekking with a scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. Lukla itself sits at approximately 2,840 meters and serves as the access point for most of the Everest region treks. You’ll immediately set out through Sagarmatha National Park, viewing dense pine forests and rhododendron flowers. Day two takes you to Namche Bazaar (3,440m), continuing to Tengboche Monastery (3,860m) the highest Buddhist monastery in the Khumbu region and a spiritual destination for many.

Your stop for the third day is the traditional Sherpa village of Khumjung. Take some time to appreciate the quaint lifestyle, see serene Buddhist monasteries, take a photo with some rare yaks, and visit the Hilary School.

After this, it’s time to head back to Lukla and enjoy the last, few final views of the beautiful Himalayan range. Moreover, if you have enough time then adding the thrilling Everest Base Camp trek or the newly opened less visited Pikey Peak Trek would be worth it.
