Overview of Everest View Trek
Your guides will introduce you to diverse Himalayan flora and fauna at Sagarmatha National Park, local culture at Namche Bazaar and other Sherpa villages, and UNESCO World Heritage sites in Nepalese capital city Kathmandu.
The journey ends with a farewell dinner on return to Kathmandu, where you can sample Nepalese cuisine for the last time before flying out.
The Everest View Trek is one of the easiest treks we offer. It's perfect for people with a lower level of fitness, as it doesn't reach Everest Base Camp and remains at lower altitudes and difficulty levels. It's also perfect for those who are short on time and would like to see stunning Everest views without completing the long, arduous trek up its slopes, as well as being a much safer option for families with children.
Although it's an easy trek, it doesn't compromise on an adventure; expect to discover the fascinating, rich culture of the Sherpa people and diverse Himalayan wildlife, and explore Nepal's beautiful nature. These expeditions are flexible and customizable to your needs, ensuring that you get the best possible experience out of your trip with us. The luxury trek also includes porters, and we can arrange hire of equipment such as down jackets to keep you cosy.
Trekking through Himalayan landscapes will leave you feeling on top of the world. The journey begins with a visit to World Heritage-listed sites including Kathmandu Durbar Square, Swayambhunath Stupa, and Pashupatinath Temple, and continues through terrain as diverse as the Dudh Koshi river banks, wildlife-rich Sagarmatha National Park, and spectacular mountain views from Jorsale and Chautara. The region's main draw is Mount Everest, whose snow-capped peaks tower over the landscape as we trek through. This trip includes a visit to the luxurious Everest View Hotel, known for its sweeping vistas out over the landscape. Most of the trek is made up of comfortable hiking and gentle mountaineering. The best time to visit is in the dry months of October to April, as June sees monsoon rains pelt down and obscure the scenery.
Culture, lifestyle and people
Although the Everest View Trek is short and sweet, there are plenty of opportunities to learn about the local lifestyle and culture. The trip passes through popular Namche Bazaar, where you'll rest for a day to acclimatise to the altitude, and through a number of other Sherpa villages. Local guides and porters will share their culture with you, and accommodation is a mix of hotels and teahouses, which give a unique glimpse into local life. You'll also pass through the green terraced hills of tea plantations, where some of the world's finest mountain teas are grown.
