The Everest View Trek is the trek for those with limited time, yet still offering close-up views of Everest and time among the villages of the Sherpa people. This route into the Everest region is one of the busiest in Nepal. After the exciting mountain flight into Lukla, ascend the Dudh Kosi Valley to the Sherpa settlement of Namche Bazaar. A day’s walk through lovely forests to the famous Buddhist monastery of Tengboche is rewarded with views of Everest rising behind the Lhotse/Nuptse wall and the stunning peak of Ama Dablam. The peaceful village of Khumjung provides a glimpse of traditional Sherpa life.
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 View 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 the village 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.
