Everest Panorama Trek
This trek is located at the highest elevation. To its lovers, the region offers the most diversified geographical settings. It is believed to be the most visited region of the world for trekking. So, we recommend not to miss the chance to glare at the highest peak in the world.
Tribhuwan International Airport (TIA), Kathmandu
Fly to Lukla, an airstrip to the south of the region better known as the ‘Gateway to Everest’. Trek for about two and a half hours to Phakding. This is a beautiful mountain village surrounded by tall hills in the Dudh Koshi River Valley which lies north of Lukla. The village is a relaxing stop for the first night of your trek.
Beyond Monjo/Phakding is the entrance to the Sagarmatha National Park at Jorsale checkpoint. Permits are checked here. The trail that followed the Dudh Koshi River starts going uphill from the suspension bridge just a few minutes from Jorsale. After a 3 hour hike, Namche Bazaar is reached.
Acclimatization or rest day at Namche. Namache is a beautiful village with interesting shops and sellers, fabulous food, and stunning views of the surrounding mountains. You could be rewarded with spectacular Himalayan sunrise and views of Mt. Everest, Lhotse – the fourth highest peak in the world, and the beautiful Ama Dablam if you hike above the town early in the morning.
Leaving Namche Bazaar, the trail follows the valley of Imja Khola with spectacular views of Thamserku, Kangtega, and Ama Dablam mountains, and dominating the skyline ahead are the giants, Lhotse and Everest. The most common night halt after Namche is at the top of a steep climb from the Imja Khola at Tengboche.
From Tengboche Monastery, we return back to Phorche Tenga which is another Sherpa village of the valley!
From Phorche Tenga, we climb down to Namche Bazaar and have a relaxing day at Namche.
Comparatively short and light trek back to Phakding from Namche Bazar after breakfast. Overnight stay at Phadking.
Next Morning we move from Phakding for Lukla. The last flight happens at around 1 to 2 pm in the afternoon, we will catch a flight on the same day if possible, or a day later. Return to Kathmandu!
