Nepal Eco adventure offers you a great trail for the Everest panorama trekking. The trek begins at Lukla, the entrance point to the Everest region, after a 45 minutes scenic flight from Kathmandu. Our final destination of this trek is Tengboche village located on the lap of Mt. Ama Dablam. Tengboche village itself is situated a hill top and surrounded by snowcapped mountains. It also contains the famous Tengboche Monastery - the highest monastery in the world.
This trek will also pass through the hidden valley of Khumbu northwest of Namche Bazar. The area has few tourists and was only opened for tourists in 1985. Previously it was the trading route of Tibet.
We are looking forward to take you on a marvellous short adventure of a lifetime.
For example, when a flight cancellation effected our arrival date in Kathmandu, Chhatra (the owner and manager) easily accommodated the necessary changes without hesitation.
Our excellent guide, Ram Karki "Ramu", was incredible in how hard he worked to ensure that our trip was an experience of a lifetime. We became good friends, and learned so much from him about the area, and the Nepal people & customs. His reverence for the traditions and culture made our trip through this spiritual land a very moving moment in our lives.
We got to know our two porters, Kesahar and Mekhman, as the trek progressed. They also gave us a window into the true lives of the Nepalese people in this area. Ram even arranged for us to have lunch along the trek with Mekhman's family in their home. It was one of the highlights of our trip.
The trek itself and scenery was beyond belief. The views of Everest from several vantage points were awesome. That said, the countless peaks in the area were even more spectacular as we hiked among them. The trails demand a good level of fitness, but the itinerary took it slow early on to ensure we acclimated appropriately. We will always remember Ram softly cautioning us, "Slowly, slowly", as we trudged uphill, along some cliffs, and across high suspension bridges.
The trails are the roads that connect all the area villages; roads that only animals and humans can cross. Yak and donkey trains carrying cargo, porters carrying huge loads, and fellow trekkers move along these well travelled paths. Many suspensions bridges along the way take your breath away, if the altitude hasn't already. :-)
The accommodations in tea houses (small Nepal family owned) along the route were each an enriching experience. You get to know the other trekkers over the Sherpa-style meals. After watching the sun set on the snow covered peaks surrounding us, we enjoyed many laughs playing a Nepal card game with other trekkers and guides that our guide Ram taught us; Double Penalty.
We highly recommend Nepal Eco Adventures, and if you can get him, our guide Ram Karki. We met other Eco Adventures guides on the trek and they seemed to be excellent as well. We observed other trekking companies groups, and based on our observations were very happy we were with Ram and Nepal Eco Adventures.
My only regret is that we did not have the time for a longer trek. We hope to return someday soon to accomplish that!”
I planning on going back for an EBC Base Camp trek and will definitely be calling Chhatra again.”

How much money do I need to bring with me?
Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.
How much should my backpack weigh?
A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.
- Do I need a porter?
Do I require a porter for carrying water?
On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.
When should I arrive in Kathmandu before the tour?
We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the start day of the trek because the tour operators usually require one working day to arrange trekking permits. Arrive earlier if you want to explore Kathmandu on your own or acclimate to any time differences.
