Everest Panorama Trek (10 Days)

  • Tengboche
  • Everest Panorama
  • Lukla
  • Monjo

The Everest Panorama Trek is especially designed for trekker’s who have limited time for a trekking holiday, but don’t want to miss out the breathtaking views of Mount Everest (8,848 m). This Trek is an easier option than the full Everest Base Camp trek, with the highest point reached being the Buddhist monastery of Tengboche (3867 metres). This is a short and scenic trek, which offers a superb view of the world’s highest peaks, including Everest, Lhotse, Thamserku, Ama Dablam and many more. You will also see a rich Sherpa culture & lifestyle. The Everest Panorama Trek is a great introduction to the Sherpa countryside and its culture, along with great mountain views, this is a very popular destination for first time trekkers in Nepal. This trek requires us to fly from Kathmandu to Lukla airstrip, then trek up to Namche Bazar, Tyangboche (famous for its monastery) and into the Khumjung village, a very nice settlement of Sherpa people.
