Be a part of Everest View Trek to marvel at the grandeur of Himalayas, especially the tallest Mount Everest and explore the rich cultural heritage of Sherpa community.

An easy trekking in the foothills of Himalayas, Everest View Trek offers you incredibly beautiful vistas, too difficult for words to describe. We trek through lush and green forests where the silence is broken intermittently by the songs of birds and caravan of fellow trekkers and locals, and the cultural ensemble that radiate the teachings of Buddhism.

This trek shuns strenuous trails and the chances of altitude sickness are almost none. With short trekking itinerary and rich cultural, natural and biological diversity, you can join this trek to experience the real Nepal in a short amount of time. Experience the vastness of Himalayas - easily and quickly in the Everest View Trek!

You begin the trek in the scenic trails of Khumbu region after taking on a scenic flight from the historical and buzzing city of Kathmandu to Lukla. After landing at the Lukla airport, the magic of Everest region starts mesmerizing you. Get immersed in the unique experience as you trek past the prayer stones carved with Buddhist mantras and suspension bridges festooned with prayer flags. As you cross deep gorges and fast flowing Dudh Koshi River you can interact with the warm welcoming locals of culturally rich villages such as Chheplung, Phakding, Nurning, Benkar and many others.

As you enter Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO listed heritage site of outstanding universal value, you enter into another world of diversity. We cross a high suspension bridge over the mighty Dudh Koshi River and follow a steep trail for an hour to reach Namche Bazaar, a Sherpa hub. As you trek higher from Namche, you can witness exceptional beauty embedded in the dramatic mountains and glaciers, deep valleys and ancient monasteries of Syangboche and other surrounding villages.

The scalp of Yeti, a mythical Himalayan creature, at Khumjung Monastery and the panoramic view of Mount Everest, gorgeous Ama Dablam, scenic Lhotse and Nuptse, and other sibling peaks from Everest View Hotel are other star attractions of this adventure. Rich Sherpa culture intricately linked with flora and fauna, weekend market of Namche Bazaar, stone cobbled streets, ancient monasteries and informational museum at Namche makes this adventure a memorable one.

We return to Lukla through the scenic trail and fly back to Kathmandu to complete this short and easy Everest View Trek.

Everest View Trek is one of the most inspiring trekking destinations in the world. It is a round-the-year trek, although the months of March to mid-May and September to mid-December are the best times for trekking. Everest View Trek is suitable for trekkers with average physical fitness. Age isn’t a restriction either - all you need is positivity and enthusiasm.

“The trek was okay - not great not bad - just average. The accommodation on the trek could be better - here I mean the Nest at Namche which was very poor. The guide was okay - English not so good and hasn't really talked much about t
he surroundings or the culture which was a shame.
Great down jackets provided by the company and skills to get us on the plane to Lukla.”
Icicles Adventure Treks and Tours Pvt Ltd responded to this review on : “Thank you very much for your review. Yes during peak trekking season there could be possibility that you don't get great rooms. The trails are crowded during trekking season and the lodges very busy, so the service they provide might not be as expected. The Nest was good before for our previous clients and we did not had any complain before (maybe because they didn't like to complain). Thanks that you give a fair feedback. We will consider changing the lodge. Regarding guides, English is not their mother language, neither they are educated from university. Some guides who have worked as guides for years now is -they learnt to work as guide after working as porter for years. So, we cannot fire them at the age when they will not get any other job in any other place because they worked for us for years. We have suggested him to improve his English and take an English class. But most of our guides speak good English (but still you should not keep high expectation). Thank you very much for your absolutely fair feedback.”

“Absolutely loved this trek! I did it in January with a friend and honestly thought it was amazing. Even though it was their winter, it meant that the trek was less busy, the days were warm and Icicles provided us with a warm sleeping bag and down jacket. Our tour guide and the business owner were great. They did so much to ensure that my friend and I had the best and most seamless trip. Thanks Icicles! Can't wait to try out our next tour/trek with you.”
An incredible and unforgettable trip!

“This trek was amazing! It is listed as easy, and it is in terms of a relatively untrained person can definitely complete the trek, however for that person it is pretty difficult. Definitely worth it, and a huge feeling of accomplishment at the end! It was a great starting out trek rather than going all the way to base camp, but still with magnificent views of Everest and surrounding mountains. The tea lodges and accomodation along the way were comfortable, nice people and good food. I travelled in winter and although mronibgs and evenings were cold, walking during the day was warm and the lodges were cozy. Winter also made for completely clear skies and beautiful weather.”
Fantastic Guys!

“After doing this (Everest View Trek) fantastic short (but strenuous-may be because I did not train sufficiently) trek I can only say that it was an amazing experience. Didn't have to worry about anything and just enjoy the incredible journey thanks to the guys from the company. Totally recommended!”

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • 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?

    The decision to hire a porter is up to you and usually based on your fitness level and/or budget. One porter can be shared between two people and can carry up to 25 kg. Many trekkers hire a porter to have a more comfortable trek.

  • 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.
