Relatively easy trek lying in the Everest region – see the most of Everest
Started with flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, the route passes through important trade centers in Khumbu region; Namche, Tengboche etc. Namche bazaar is one of the important transit points in Khumbu region with a sensational view of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse & Ama Dablam. Best suited for trekkers having no longer time to go the Base Camp, this trekking route offers a good settlement of Sherpa community. It’s design for trekkers who are in their initiation of Nepal trekking, based on consideration that a continuous acclimatization is needed with practices of short trekking routes before going to the longer height.
Some people have the idea that trekking is all sweat and hard work with no fun. This is far from the truth. Days are designed to be challenging, but not exhausting. When you choose the Everest Panorama Trek, days begin with breakfast at the tea house you stay. You will need to pack up your duffle bags before breakfast, as porters will set off early. To cover the magnificent sun rays that strike on the mountains, you will be on the trail by around 8 am. A lunch stop for a leisurely lunch will be around noon. Lunch usually takes about 2 hours, allowing plenty of time to explore or relax. The afternoon walk is shorter and you usually arrive around 4pm leaving time for excursions to nearby sites, nunneries, exploration of the village or simply relaxing with a book and catching up on your diary. Dinner is generally around 7pm.
