The Everest Panorama Trek is a shorter version of the Everest Base Camp trek that lets you enjoy a similar experience, in half the time. The Everest Panorama Trek is perfect for people who wish to see the Himalayas, Mount Everest and other majestic mountains in all their beauty, but are short on time to go for a full Everest Base Camp trek.
The Himalayas is one of the few destinations that lets you enjoy the best of adventure, natural beauty, romance, culture and history in the same itinerary. The Everest Panorama Trek is an excellent trek that reminds you of everything your modern-day lifestyle forces you to ignore.
The Everest Panorama Trek is perfect to catch a glimpse of the traditional Himalayan lifestyle. It doesn’t take you all the way to Everest Base Camp, but it still manages to present mesmerizing views of some of the most enchanting mountains in the region. You also get to see a number of cultural heritage sites, enjoy crossing high suspension bridges, meet the yaks, pass Buddhist prayer rocks and explore rhododendron and pine forests.
The trek offers some of the most enchanting sunrise views of Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Lhotse and Mt. Everest, from a view point located 1-hour walk from Namche Bazaar. You also get the opportunity to see the beautiful monastery and spectacular natural beauty of Tengboche. From Phakding you can enjoy great views of Mt. Kusumkangaru and Mt. Kongde, two of the most technical peaks in Nepal.
