Everest Panorama Trek

Introduction

Everest Panorama Trek | Outdoor Himalayan Treks, Nepal

Everest Panorama Trek neither demands trekking experience nor a long time. Start from Lukla and spend a leisurely day at Namche for acclimatization. Then move on gently as far as Tengboche to enjoy the view of Everest. You will meet and interact with trekkers and mountaineers, including those bound on Everest expedition. During the trek, you will discover some superb Himalayan scenery without the demanding efforts and arduousness usually accompanying such trips. Besides Tengboche has its famed Monastery, a prototype of Buddhist-Tibetan cultural heritage bearing intricately carved, exquisite artworks. The Mani Rimdu festival, held in this monastery annually during the October/November full moon, draws flocks of visitors to the area with its colorful masked dances. From this monastery, do not miss an opportunity to see Everest with your own eyes. Likewise, do not forget to bring your camera along, because you can not resist the temptation to take some great photos of the Everest panorama.

Everest Panorama Trek gives you the glimpse of numerous peaks, glaciers, gorges, ravines, and other picturesque sceneries, plus a chance to get familiar with the Sherpa culture in its place of origin.  It is in this region that they had settled in the earlier periods of history after crossing the Himalayas from the north. The Sherpa villages in this region like Tengboche, Namche and Phakding that fall in this trekking route still exhibit their pristine culture Their hospitality and friendliness have gained legendary popularity among the visitors of this area; their bravery and skill have helped the mountaineers from across the world scale the insurmountable heights of the Himalayan peaks. Trudge along this trail to gauge their high spirits, and the highest places on earth.

Besides you can extend this trip up to Everest Base Camp or do any of the treks available in this region. We start the trek with a flight to Lukla airport from Kathmandu and end the trek back in the same place.
