The Everest Panorama trek is an easy trek with a rather short duration. This trek is suitable for those trekkers who do not have much time available and who is looking for an easier trek while still getting great views of Mount Everest. On this trek you will not only get amazing views of Mount Everest having an altitude of 8850 meters but also other great mountains such as Mt. Lhotse, Mt Makalu and other peaks.
Aside from great Himalayan scenery you will also get a lot of cultural inputs such as the hospitality of the Sherpa people, charming villages, colorful festivals, and beautiful monasteries.
This trek will start from Kathmandu where we will take a short flight to the airport of Lukla, the entrance point of the Everest region. During most of the trek we will be hiking in the Sagarmatha National Park, displaying beautiful pine trees, rhododendron flowers (Nepal's national flower) and plenty of wildlife.
At Namche Bazaar, the "capital" of the Everest region we will have 1 extra day for proper acclimatisation. Hereafter we will trek to Tengboche, home to the highest Buddhist monastery in the world.
Tengboche offers great views of Mt. Everest and other known mountain such as Mt. Ama Dablam, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Nuptse etc.
At the final days of this trek we will overnight at the delightful and scenic villages of Khunde and Monjo where we can participate in astonishing traditional lifestyle of the local Sherpa inhabitants.
After reaching Lukla we will fly back to Kathmandu, where it all began. All in all this is a great little 8 days trek and is very suitable for the ones having short time available but who still wants to experience the Himalayan mountain region and its giant peaks. The trek is not very tough and can be done by anybody capable of walking 5-6 hours a day. If you have doubts on your physical strength we recommend that you book a porter also, before checking out of bookmundi.
