As soon as you complete the booking, we will email you the available date and time for the trek briefing. Please note that we conduct trip briefing only once either online or in person. 

Lukla Flight Information

There might be slight alterations to the trek itinerary, mainly during peak trek seasons (March, April, May, October, and November), as the flight to Lukla will be from Ramechhap/Manthali instead of Kathmandu due to traffic congestion. At other times, the flight will be from Kathmandu. To catch a flight from Ramechhap, we must leave Kathmandu and head to Manthali around 12:30 a.m. on the scheduled departure date. The drive will take around five hours.

 

Comprehensive Everest View Trek Overview

The Everest panorama view trek journey will begin with a 45-minute flight to Lukla Airport. It will be an enjoyable and very scenic flight.

After arriving in Lukla, you will start the EBC trek on the Dudh Koshi River banks and enter the gateway of Everest - Namche Bazaar. You will acclimatize in this famous Sherpa town for a day.

While acclimatizing, we will take you on a side trek to Khumjung, providing time to explore the local yak farm, visit the Edmund Hillary-funded school and Hospital, and enjoy the views of Everest from Everest View Hotel premises. People believe that Khumjung Monastery houses an ancient Yeti Scalp.

During the Everest View trekking, you will also visit airstrips in Syangboche while enjoying great views of Mt Everest and Ama Dablam. Then, you will continue to Tengboche. Once again, from Tengboche, you will catch spectacular views of Mt. Everest and other high peaks.

We will also take you to the ancient monastery of Tengboche to observe the monks offering prayers. Then, you will return to Namche Bazaar and trek back to Lukla. The excitement builds up as you cross high-suspension bridges and dense forests. From your path, you might spot highland wildlife as you appreciate the beautiful scenery. The journey as a whole will indeed be very refreshing.

Discovery World Trekking offers hundreds of trek packages all over Nepal and over a dozen in the Everest region, including Mt Everest View Trek. We created an Everest view trek itinerary package for all age groups and people with almost all fitness levels because we believe everyone should see Mt. Everest at least once in life.

If you are wondering how trekking in Nepal feels, the Everest View Trek 7 days is a good introductory trek. However, if you crave the best view of Mount Everest from Nepal, you must trek to Everest Base Camp (5,364m) and reach Kala Patthar (5,555m).

Why Everest Panorama View Trek?

The Everest View Trek is a short alternative trek for those who want to avoid altitude sickness but still enjoy the views of Everest. This Everest view trekking will take you to the extraordinarily famous Sherpa town of Namche Bazaar, where you will acclimatize while appreciating the Sherpa lifestyle and hospitality. At Namche, you will meet adventurers heading north to set foot on Everest Base Camp or even climb Everest.

Along with Mt. Everest, you will also see the world's other high peaks, such as Mt. Lhotse (8,516m) and Cho Oyu (8,201m). As you cover a substantial altitude, you will see a wide range of flora and fauna. You can spend days exploring the Sagarmatha National Park.

DWT recommends all our valuable clients arrive at Kathmandu as early as possible, at least one day before the trek departure date, for last-minute preparations. If in case you missed the online trip briefing, it will allow us time to conduct an in-person briefing. The flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and Lukla to Kathmandu may get delayed due to the weather. In such cases, we reschedule these flights to the next available flight. So, we suggest our clients add at least 2 extra days as a cushion to the trip to avoid international flight delays back to their home country.

Trip Information

Arrival (free airport pickup)

Discovery World Trekking provides free airport arrival and departure transfer for our valuable clients booking the Everest Panorama Trek package. Our representative will be at Tribhuvan International Airport, holding a pamphlet with your name. They will offer you a garland or a Khada as a welcome gesture and take you to your hotel in a private vehicle. We provide this service to ensure you do not face navigational or other problems in a foreign country.

 

Trek start

We will pick you up from the airport and take you to your hotel. You will require at least one overnight stay at a hotel in Kathmandu. The next day, early morning, you will take a domestic flight to Lukla that takes approximately 40 minutes. This package includes Kathmandu-Lukla- Kathmandu flight costs.

 

Accommodation

The Everest Base Panorama Trek is a 7-day hike requiring six nights of lodge-to-lodge stay at trek regions. We will arrange the best available lodges in those areas. You will stay five nights in rooms with an attached bathroom at Lukla, Phakding, and Namche (3N). In Tengboche, you will stay in a standard room. All rooms are twin-sharing rooms.

Solo trekkers will stay in single private rooms with an attached bathroom at Lukla, Namche, Phakding (3N), and a single standard room at Tengboche.

You will require two nights hotel stay in Kathmandu before and after the trek, but it is not included in the package. Kathmandu has a wide range of hotels that suit all budgets and tastes.


Meals

This trek takes you to high elevations in the periphery of the world’s highest peaks, which means you require carbohydrates, proteins, and other nutrients. Though the choices may be fewer, we will provide you with enough nutritious and tasty food during the trek.

We will provide seven breakfasts, seven lunches, and six dinners during the trek. 

The menu contains traditional, Asian, and Western cuisine, but as we climb up, the menu gets shorter. We highly recommend liquids like green tea, lemon tea, hot lemon, ginger tea, and garlic soup(must) at high altitudes. Fresh vegetables are great for your health as well. We want you to try popular Nepali dishes - dal (lentil), bhat (rice), tarkari (curry), momos (dumplings), and Chow mein.  

Though plenty of non-veg items will be available in trek regions, we do not recommend them because the meat in trek regions may not be hygienic. We highly encourage you to avoid dairy, alcoholic, caffeinated items, and hot chocolates.

All personal bills (alcoholic drinks, hot (tea/coffee), and cold drinks) in tea houses/Lodges or cafes except standard meals (Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner with seasonal fruits) are excluded from the package.

 

Luggage

We assign one porter for every two trekkers. Per trekker luggage weight limit is 9 kg, so one porter will not carry more than 18 kg of combined luggage. We never overload our porters. Even though porters will carry most of your luggage, we expect you to carry a regular backpack for your valuables. We recommend you bring only the essentials to the trek. You can store your excess baggage in your hotel or our store for free. We will recheck everything (luggage, equipment, gear) before starting the journey.


Typical day

Each day comes with a unique trek experience, enjoying the scenery, taking photos, and exploring the local villages. Our experienced and friendly trek guides/Sherpas will share information about the places as you trek. Porters will carry our luggage, but you need to carry a small regular-day bag pack for valuable items. 

The day starts with an early morning hot cup of tea/coffee, and we set off on the day’s walk around 7 to 8 am, depending on the duration and nature of the day’s walk. 

After trekking for three to four hours, we serve lunch around midday on the route to the next destination. After lunch, we will rest for an hour and then continue. The afternoon walk will be shorter. Once you reach the overnight lodge/tea house, you can snack on the extra dietary food. In your free time, before dark, you can explore nearby places.

We will serve dinner around 6 to 7 pm. After dinner and before heading to bed, you can engage in friendly conversations and discuss your experience with each other. Your leader/guide will brief you about the next day’s plan. After this briefing and before going to bed, you can enjoy reading books, watching mountaineering videos if available, or playing board games like Monopoly or cards. Most foreigners also learn simple Nepali words from our crew.

Electricity and water

Throughout the lodges at Everest View Trek regions, you can get electricity for your camera and mobile for a small price. You can buy packed mineral water from local lodges or en-route shops. In addition, you can carry a water bottle and fill it with boiled or filtered water that you can purchase at lodges or tea houses. You should not drink water from rivers, taps, and wells in the trek regions for hygiene concerns.

 

Communication

During the Everest View Trek, you can use internet service at the lodges, but it comes with some extra service charge. Once we reach high altitudes, we will communicate by phone for safety. Discovery World Trekking remains in contact with all its trek groups at least once daily through trek leaders to ensure everyone is safe and comfortable. If you want, you can buy a local sim in Kathmandu. However, depending on your network, the signals might not be strong enough. 

Tipping

Nepali culture accepts tipping. Tipping is at travelers' discretion and should reflect the service rendered trek length and trek cost. We advise you to tip the crew collectively at the end of the trek.

 

Trek End

On the last day of your trek, in the morning, we will take you to Lukla for a 40-minute flight back to Kathmandu. The flight cost is included in this package. We hope you will have a relaxing flight as you relive the moments of your trek. You can spend the remaining day as you like. We will organize a farewell dinner later in the evening. 


Feedback

After completing the Everest View Trek, we will organize a farewell dinner in Kathmandu. After the trek, we will present you trek achievement certificate. This is also a perfect time to give us your feedback about the trip.

 

Useful Info

Lukla Aiport is very busy during the trekking season, but due to bad weather, there is a chance of flights getting canceled or postponed. Hence, we recommend you add two extra days to this trek package so that you will not miss your international flight back to your country. You can hire a helicopter in case of flight delays, but it will cost you between USD 500 to 1000. Similarly, the above itinerary is a general guideline. In rare cases, we might need to adjust the itinerary for circumstances beyond our control, such as bad weather, landslides, government decrees, etc. 

 

Trip extension

After completing your trek, if you want to stay a couple of days extra in Nepal, we can arrange other activities for you - including exploring and sightseeing in and around Kathmandu Valley, Chitwan jungle safari, paragliding, rafting, canoeing, etc.

 

Departure

On the day of your departure back to your home country, our representative will pick you up from your hotel and transfer you to Tribhuvan International Airport. We hope you enjoyed your trek in Nepal and will be back for more adventures in the Nepali Himalayas. We provide around a hundred trek packages.

Trek season

The weather is the crucial factor you must consider while deciding to participate in Everest View Trek. Adventurers, locals, and trek enthusiasts hike to Everest Base Camp trek throughout the year, but there are ups and downs based on seasons. The best trek season is during the spring and autumn as the sky is crystal clear, the chances of rain are minimum, and there are no clouds. Clear azure skies provide the most spectacular vistas, while the favorable warm temperature makes the trek heavenly.

During winter, the trek becomes challenging due to heavy snowfall and cold temperatures, but it also excites some trekkers. Similarly, summer coincides with the monsoon in Nepal, so the path is a little slippery and wet.

January to February: This time is the coldest, especially from early January to early February. There is heavy snowfall in the trek regions resulting in frigid temperatures. Though the daytime may be warm and admirable with clear skies, the nighttime is extremely cold, but the trek is possible in these months. Discovery World Trekking conducts safe Everest View Treks during these months, but if you are allergic to colds, you shouldn’t trek during these months.

Temperature: Temperatures range from 15°C to -5°C

 

March to April: It is one of the best seasons for Everest View Trek due to favorable weather. You can get stunning views of the Himalayan ranges and glaciers. March, being the beginning of the spring season, the weather starts to warm up. During these months, all flora and fauna, dormant throughout the winter, come back to life, feeding, and breeding in the sun-kissed temperatures. Temperatures start increasing from the mid of March, and with clear skies, snow mountains look their best. 

Temperature: Around 18 °C during the day and around 6 °C at night

May to June: This is also the perfect time for trekking, right before the rainfall. Rainfall in Nepal starts at the end of June and lasts till mid-August. The mix of spring and summer seasons makes the trek much more enjoyable.

Temperature: Around 25°C during the day and around 7°C at night

July to August: The rainfall hits its peak during this time at altitudes below 3500 meters. Due to heavy rainfall, flights to Lukla may get canceled at the beginning or end of the trek, but trekkers trek to Everest Base Camp during these months. The hike is challenging but not impossible. We do conduct safe Everest View Treks during this time. If you trek during these months, you will witness spectacular views of the waterfalls in comparatively uncrowded trails. 

Temperature: Around 27°C during the day and around 10°C at night

September to October:  These months also form one of the perfect Everest View Trek seasons. Large numbers of trekkers visit Everest reason during these months. As the monsoon slowly ends, a perfect trekking climate sets in. The temperature rises to 20 degrees during the daytime and falls to 5 degrees at night. Most trekkers enjoy trekking the most at this time due to the clear skies, which provide stunning views of the mountains. Tourists coming for the Everest View Trek view in these months can also enjoy the festive mood of Nepalis as two major Nepali festivals - Dashain and Tihar fall during these months.

Temperature: Around 20°C during the day and around 6°C at night

November to December: As winter slowly begins, snowfalls start in the Himalayas, and it gets tough to trek. Nights get very cold. November treks are easier with sparkling days and amazing views of glorious mountains. The daytime temperatures are very stable, but nights are cold. From December, the temperature starts to get very low due to snow. 

Temperature: Around 15°C during the day and around -14°C at night

The weather in the Himalayas is unpredictable and changes quickly.


Trek difficulty

The Everest View Trek is an easy trip to see Mt. Everest close without reaching Everest Base Camp. However, this is not a casual journey. The trekking route involves hiking along the rocky mountain, steep ascents, descents, and straightforward paths. 

So the trip is not very demanding. Novice trekkers of all age groups can join this trek. You do not need any technical experience or skills. However, the fitter you are, the more you will enjoy the hike. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood disease should inform us before booking the trek.

 

Trek safety 

We take our valuable guests' safety seriously. We will be carrying all the necessary gear, equipment, and first aid kits prepared to face any situation. Our leaders and guides have completed extensive first-aid training. If a trekker falls sick due to the altitude, your trek leader has the authority to decide whether to continue the ascend or descend immediately. We also make sure that all trekkers trek as a group.

The highest elevation you will reach in the 7 Days Everest View Trek is 3,875m at Tengboche. This package includes a day at Namche for proper acclimatization. The chance of being affected by altitude sickness is negligible. 

Your trekking leader and guide have extensive first-aid training and are well-experienced. We also use oximeters to monitor your oxygen level to detect signs of altitude sickness. Further, we have designed our itinerary to prevent altitude sickness. You will ascend slowly, taking regular breaks, and we suggest you drink plenty of water. 

We guarantee your health will be in reliable hands. In severe mountain sickness cases, the only cure is to descend immediately. Your group leader has the authority to stop your ascent based on the condition of trek members. You need to understand that some individuals are more vulnerable than others.

DWT team

Throughout the trek, our well-experienced and licensed guides/Sherpas will accompany you. They will make sure your journey is comfortable and memorable. Porters will carry your luggage. We provide one porter for two trekkers. However, if you want, we can assign one porter per trekker. Our crew members are locals raised in remote high Himalayas, so their physical endurance at high altitudes is remarkable. 

All our staff members are precious to us. We pay them well and take care of their insurance, clothing, food, and lodging throughout the trek.

Despite having the security advantage of a traveler's cheque, we recommend cash exchange to avoid hassles like lengthy processes and a high bank commission. You can also withdraw cash (in Rupees only) from one of the many ATMs in Kathmandu. Many of these ATMs are open around the clock. The maximum withdrawal amount is NPR 35,000 Rupees for an NPR 500 processing fee using your foreign card.

If you use the money exchange facilities at banks and financial institutions, the service fee charge imposed is about four percent or more, depending upon the bank. Trek regions have no banks, and money exchange services, so you should exchange your money in Kathmandu based on your expense estimations. Trek regions only accept Nepalese currency.

Most banks in Asia do not accept old, torn, or faded foreign currency notes, so make sure you have new, clean notes.


Extra personal expenses

You must cover the accommodations and meals during your stay in Kathmandu. Besides these costs, you need personal spending money for the visa process, travel insurance policy purchase, beverages, snacks, tips, and souvenirs. We recommend you bring cash (major currency) and exchange them for Nepali Rupees in Kathmandu.

 

Travel Insurance

This trip grade is easy, but it takes place at higher elevations, and there is a tiny chance of altitude sickness and other hazards. Hence travel insurance is compulsory. The policy must cover medical and helicopter rescue expenses at the highest altitude. We can recommend insurance companies for you based on our previous client experience, but we do not sell insurance policies. 

We request our valuable clients to send their detailed insurance information within a week of booking. In emergencies, we will use your insurance policy and other informational documents to arrange a swift evacuation and transfer you to medical centers. 

Before buying travel insurance, call the insurance company and recheck if they have Heli-rescue and evacuation up to 4000m. Do not just believe what insurers write on their website.


Last-minute booking

It is best to book in advance, but if you are unable to book in advance, Discovery World Trekking accepts the last-minute booking. To take advantage of this booking, you must pay 100% trip cost 24 hours before the trek departure date. We do our best to operate a trek at any time, but, in case of last-minute booking, you cannot hold us responsible for delays due to circumstances beyond our control, such as bad weather, unavailability of lodges, etc. Contact us for more information at 977- 9840055491 (Paul) or email us at [email protected].


Group & private trek

We organize groups as well as private treks. If you have your group, you will be eligible for discounts, but you will not get discounts for groups we assemble. We can handle all group sizes and add an assistant guide for trek groups with 12 or more trekkers.

 

Responsible travel

We strongly believe in environmental sustainability. Hence, Discovery World Trekking works together with the Kathmandu Environmental Education Project (KEEP) to organize eco-friendly trips to prevent the adverse effect of tourism in trek areas while benefitting the locals and the trekkers.

Discovery World Trekking

If you're seeking an unforgettable adventure amidst the majesty of the Himalayas, look no further than the Everest View Trek! My journey here with Discovery World Trekking was an experience beyond words. The real highlight was, of course, the views of Everest itself. Gazing upon the world's tallest peak, was a moment I'll cherish forever.

Our guide was exceptional, and knowledgeable about the area's history, culture, and the nuances of trekking in the Himalayas. They ensured our safety and comfort throughout the journey, and their passion for the region was truly inspiring.

Overall, the Everest View Trek exceeded all my expectations. It's a must-do for anyone with a sense of adventure and a love for the great outdoors. Highly recommended! I will come back again to do the Everest base camp trek.
