Panorama Everest Trek

Everest Panorama with Tengboche Monastery trek is the best way to experience the wonders of mountain nature in a very short period of time. Everest Panorama with Tengboche monastery tour is relatively the shortest trek compared to other treks and is also, an attitude-free hike in Everest Region.

The trekkers get a chance to discover wonderful places and a superb scenic view of the Himalayas. Without demanding any heavy trekking, the trails take the adventure seekers high up along the route to Tengboche monastery (3890 m), the highest elevation of the entire trek.

Everest panorama trek presents you with a combination of the breathtaking Alps and adventurous sports like white water rafting and jungle safari (which is completely optional). The globetrotters with exceptional love for nature witness heaven right in front of their eyes, as they get a chance to witness the breathtaking views of Mount Everest (8848 m), Mt. Lhoste (8516 m), Mt. Thamserku (6623 m), Mt. Ama Dablam (6812 m), Mt. Kantega (6780 m) and many other snowcapped peaks.

Everest Panorama with Tengboche Monastery hike begins by exploring the bustling capital city of Nepal, Kathmandu. From Kathmandu, we head towards Lukla on a flight that will give you an experience of a lifetime.

You will find yourself surrounded by the most incredible hills covered with dense forest, along with a superb view of the high mountains. Make sure you have grabbed your cameras with you to capture the mesmerizing beauty of nature.

We will then trek up to the famous Namche Bazaar, also popularly known as the Sherpa land. Continuing our trek towards Tengboche, which is famous for its legendary Tengboche monastery, we lead to the scattered Khumjung village, a brilliant and vigorous settlement of the Sherpa people.

Passing along the trails, visitors stumble across overwhelming sites of the great Himalayan giants which will definitely leave them stunned. The hospitality and culture of the Sherpa people are something very unique and extraordinarily good that you get to encounter along the way.

Everest Panorama trek will undoubtedly be the best trek you get to experience in such a short period of time. So next time you get a short vacation from your busy life, this is definitely the trek you would not be able to resist trying.

Early morning you will be picked up by your guide to go to the Kathmandu airport, from where we will take the airplane to Lukla, which will take us about 35 minutes of flight time. At Lukla, we will be meet our porters and will head north from the airstrip to Chablung (2,700m). Here we will cross the Tharo Kosi river on a local-style suspension bridge. Just past the bridge, we can see the peak of Kusum Kanguru (6,367m), which is the most difficult of the so-called “trekking peaks”. Beyond the Tharo Kosi, the trail climbs a bit towards Ghat (2,590m), we will cross a ridge marked with painted mani stones and climb to Phakding where we will spend our first night. Overnight at guest house.

From Phakding we follow the valley of the Dudh Kosi River, staying on the west bank of the river. We climb steeply over a rocky ridge towards Benkar (2,710m). From here the trail continues alongside the river. All along this part of the trail, villages are interspersed with magnificent forests of rhododendron, magnolia, and giant firs. In both the early autumn and late spring, the flowers on this portion of the trek make it a beautiful walk. We cross the Kyashar Khola River and climb out of the valley to Monjo (2,840m). Just beyond Monjo, the trek enters the Sagarmatha (Everest) National Park, which was established in 1976 to protect an area of 1,148 sq km surrounding Mt Everest. Beyond the national park entrance station, the trail makes a steep rocky descent and crosses the Dhud Kosi river on a 120m-long suspension bridge towards Jorsale (2,830m). After crossing this river a few times while climbing our way up the valley we will reach Namche Bazaar (3,445m). Namche Bazaar is the main trading center in this region and features numerous shops, hotels, and restaurants. Overnight at guest house.

Acclimatization is important before proceeding higher. Today we will take a day hike through the villages of Khunde and Khumjung. We start with a steep one-hour climb to the Shyangboche airstrip (3790m), from where we will slowly ascent towards Khunde passing numerous chorten (stone Buddhist monuments). From Khunde we follow the trail eastwards to Khumjung, the largest village in Khumbu, at the foot of the sacred peak Khumbila. After enjoying lunch here we will follow a steep switchbacking trail descending to Chhorkung (3540m). From here it is a quick descent back to Namche Bazaar. Overnight at guest house.

Our route of today to Tengboche weaves in and out of side valleys, making small ups and downs, to the teashops of Kenjoma, and joins the trail from Khumjung just before a collection of mani stones. The views of Everest and Ama Dablam are excellent from this part of the trek. We pass the small settlement of Sanasa from where the trail drops towards Phunki Thanga (3,250m). From here the trail climbs steeply through forests and around mani stones as it follows the side of a hill to the saddle on which the monastery of Tengboche sits at 3,880m. The view from here is rightly deemed to be one of the world’s most magnificent. Kwangde (6,187m), Tawachee (6,542m), Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse (8,501m), Ama Dablam, Kantega and Thamserku provide an inspiring panorama of Himalayan giants. We will spend the night in Tengboche village. Overnight at guest house.

Everest Panorama Trek, amazing experience

We had a wonderful time with Ashok and Alpine Eco Trek on the Everest Panorama Trek. From the pick up at the airport to deal with a canceled flight from Kathmandu to Lukla to a day tour around Kathmandu to see and learn the significant sights of this ancient valley, we felt well taken care of and comfortable. Ashok was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, and we quickly became close to him. Ram Kumar was very friendly and attentive after we returned from the trek and managed the logistics of our trek perfectly. We highly recommend not only the trek, but also Alpine Eco Trek for a smooth, intimate, and authentic experience. The Everest Panorama Trek itself allowed us to experience Everest without being able to spend more than two weeks in Nepal. The views of Mount Everest, Ama Dablam, Nuptse, and Lohste were breathtaking, particularly on the hike from Namche to Tengboche. The accommodations in the mountain lodges were surprisingly cozy and comfortable. It was great to trek through all of the little villages, experiencing the Sherpa culture along the way. We recommend this trek to everyone with reasonably fit and thank you Ram and alpine eco trek team for your excellent arrangements.
