Everest Panorama Trek - 09 Days

Trip Overview

Everest panorama Trek, although relatively easy compared to some of other treks, takes you up high along trails to Tengboche Monastery (3850m). This is a short trek but very scenic trek offers really superb view of the world's highest peaks, including Everest, Lhotse, Thamserku, Ama Dablam and other many snowy peaks.

We fly from Kathmandu to Lukla airstrip in the Khumbu region and trek up to Namche Bazar, Tyangboche (famous for its monastery) and into the Khumjung village, a very nice settlement of Sherpas people. This trek is a great introduction to Sherpa country and its culture with great mountain views, a very popular destination for first time trekkers in Nepal. This trek is best suited for those who do not have enough time for longer treks into the high mountains.

Hi Babu,
"Our trek on Everest was excellent and wonderful. Ram were perfect traveling companions and was always helpful, ever when he was tired and he was very efficient in sometimes-difficult circumstances. They are an asset to Unique Path Trekking and I would recommend to Unique Path to anyone who wishes to trek in Nepal."
