Comprehensive Trek Overview

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 trek will take you to the extraordinarily famous Sherpa town of Namche Bazaar, where you will acclimatize while appreciating the Sherpa lifestyle and hospitality.

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 will be covering substantial altitude, you will be seeing a wide range of flora and fauna. You can spend days exploring the Sagarmatha National Park.

This journey will begin with a 45 minutes flight to Lukla. It will be an enjoyable and very scenic flight. During the flight, you can even see the Annapurna Himalayan range.

After arriving in Lukla, we will start our trek via the banks of the Dudh Koshi River to enter the gateway of Everest - Namche Bazaar. We will acclimatize in this famous Sherpa town for a day. On the acclimatizing day, we will complete a side trek to Khumjung, explore the local yak farm, visit Edmund Hillary-funded school and Hospital, and enjoy the views of Everest from Everest View Hotel premises. People believe that Khumjung Monastery contains an ancient Yeti Scalp.

We will also visit airstrips in Syangboche while enjoying great views of Mt Everest and Ama Dablam. Then we continue our trek to Tengboche. Once again, from Tengboche, you will catch spectacular views of Mt. Everest and other high peaks.

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

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 place at 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 less, 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. Some of the popular menu items are: 

Seven breakfasts - Oatmeal, Corn Flakes, French toast with Jam, Butter, Cheese, Honey Tibetan bread or Chapati, Local Tsampa porridge, Eggs, Pancakes, Muesli Breads, fruits, Vegetables, Hot Drinks (varieties of teas and coffees, hot chocolates, etc.)

Though plenty of non-veg items will be available at 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, Dinner with seasonal fruits) are excluded from the package.

Best Season to trek

The weather is the crucial factor you need to consider before 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 temperature 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 ranges 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 from 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 goes up 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 Everest View Trek view in these months can also enjoy the festive mood of Nepalis as two major Nepali festivals - Dashain and Tihar that fall during these months.

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

November to December

As winter slowly begins, snow falls start in the Himalayas, and it eventually 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. 

The weather in the Himalayas is unpredictable and changes quickly.

Acclimatization

The highest elevation you will be reaching 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 be ascending slowly, taking regular breaks, and we suggest you drink plenty of water every day. 
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.

Trip Grade: Fitness level, Medical, and Health

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.

Trekking Group/Single

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. 

A 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 with you information and historical facts 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 our overnight lodge/tea house/tent, 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 going to bed, you are free to 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 onboard games like monopoly or cards. Most foreigners also learn simple Nepali words from our crew. 

Communication during the trek

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 will remain in contact with all of its trek groups at least once a day through trek leaders to ensure everyone is safe and comfortable. If you want, you can buy a local sim in Kathmandu. However, depending on the network you use, the signals might not be strong enough. 

Wi-Fi is available in lodges/tea houses but comes with an extra cost.

Extra personal expenses

You will need to 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 to carry cash (major currency) and exchange them for Nepali Rupees in Kathmandu

Electricity, water on trekking

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 during the trek. In addition, you can carry your water bottle and fill it with boiled or filtered water from lodges for a small price.

You shouldn't drink water from rivers, taps, and wells in the trek regions for hygiene concerns.

Travle Insurance Policy

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 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 you buy travel insurance, make sure to call the insurance company and recheck if they have Heli-rescue and evacuation up to 4000m. Do not just believe what is written on their website.

Passport and visa

All foreigners except Indians require a visa to enter Nepal. You can get an on-arrival Visa at the Tribhuvan International Airport. 

For a visa application, you will require a passport with at least six months of validity, a passport-size photo, and visa fees. The current cost of the visa fee is USD 50 for 30 days, which you can pay in cash. Citizens of China and the SAARC countries will receive a free visa. Citizens from certain countries (Nigeria, Ghana, Zimbabwe, Swaziland, Cameroon, Somalia, Liberia, Ethiopia, Iraq, Palestine, and Afghanistan) may not receive on-arrival visas. So if you are a citizen of any one of these countries, you will have to contact your local Nepalese embassy.

Government can change visa policies without notice, so please check https://www.immigration.gov.np/ for the latest information.

Money exchange

Nepali Rupees (NPR/Rs) is the local currency.

(1 USD = ~ Rs 120 NPR).

You can exchange major foreign currencies through local banks and legitimate money exchanges in Kathmandu and all over Thamel. Money exchanges display the exchange rates visibly for the public. If you have INR (Indian Rupees), please note that only INR notes of 100 and 2000 are legal in Nepal.

Despite having the security advantage of a traveler's cheque, we recommend cash exchange so that you can 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 35,000 Rupees for a 500 Rupees 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.

How Much Luggage Can I Bring to 7 days-Everest View Trek?

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 either in your hotel or our store for free. 

We'll recheck everything (Luggage, equipment, etc) in our briefing before we start our journey in our Office.

Trek Safety

We take our valuable guests' safety seriously. We will be carrying all the necessary gears, 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. 

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 at trek areas while benefitting the locals and the trekkers. 

Discovery World Trekking Crew

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. All our guides and porters receive medical care when ill or injured. We try our best to make every team member happy as we believe that only a happy crew can make our clients happy.

Just returning from a 12-day trek to Everest panorama with Discovery world trekking. It was not just the trek that was regulated perfectly. Beforehand, my questions and e-mails were answered professionally, friendly and very quick. Scared at the beginning, we gained a lot of confidence by talking to Paul, through e-mail and personal meeting before the trek, thank you Paul! The service from this company, starting from the first e-mail contact ending with a goodbye-dinner makes us feel so welcome. the certificate after we finished the trek shows that the company too, feels proud to share this moment with you. A special thanks to our guide SAROZ, now our brother. He was professional, caring and above that, we had a lot of fun together. . He was so proud of us and enjoying the moment with us, he made our trek even more special! In the future I will hopefully trek with him again.

An Amazing Journey

Thank you to Discovery World Trekking for such an amazing trip to Everest base camp. My wife and I started looking into a trip to Nepal to do the EBC trek and from all the companies we emailed we are so happy we went with DWT. Each question or concern was answered almost immediately by Paul prior to coming to Nepal and it just got easier after that. Our guide, Dol, was with us to help whenever we needed, first picking us up at the airport to all the good times along the way. Dol was very good about answering all our questions about the mountains, people and lifestyles along the way and kept a safe easy pace for everyone in the group. Our porters, Lakhman and Suraj were very quick with our bags, making sure they were in our room before we arrived each day. Once we arrived at base camp Dol presented us with an achievement medal and Paul had a certificate made up for us. These little things made us feel like DWT really cares about their clients. We would definitely book with DWT when we come back to Nepal. Thank you so much for this trip of a lifetime.

I’ve made the best decision choose Discovery World Trekking company for my first solo travel/trek. And I thankful to Discovery World Trekking team for the absolutely amazing experience in Nepal. My guide, Mr. Siddhanta was very patient and caring throughout the trek despite how slow I was. I felt very safe in his hand because he has good knowledge and experienced trekking guide. Spectacular mountains of Everest, best Dal Bhat and wonderful people! I would highly recommend Discovery World Trekking company for your memorable adventures in Nepal.
