Everest region of Nepal has numerous trekking trails ranging from long trekking routes to short trekking routes. Trekkers will reach as high as 5545 m at Kalapathar and cross the daunting high altitude passes. However, there are numerous people who wants to gaze at Mount Everest yet don’t want to walk for more than 2-3 days. Therefore, Aster Treks created the Everest View Trek package for such trekkers. Our itinerary for the Everest View Trek is divided into two parts according to the wishes of our valued clients. They will trek either to Tengboche Monastery or to Everest View Hotel as their final trekking destination.
Everest View Trek is not different from the regular contemporary Everest Region trekking in Nepal. Trekkers will follow the adventure through Lukla, Phakding and Sagarmatha National Park entry point before reaching the Namche Bazaar. Our travel planners have knitted itinerary for this mini trek in Everest in such a way that the trekkers can gaze over 25 different snow covered mountains in just a week’s time. The first destination which trekkers can choose is Everest View Hotel and the second is Tengboche.
During Everest View Trek you can opt to trek up to Everest View Hotel only as well. From this place trekkers can see the marvelous scenery of Kwangde, Thamserku, Kusum Kangaru, Tabuche, Choyou, Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam etc. after just 45 minutes of walking from Namche Bazaar. If trekkers want to learn more about the cultural aspect of Khumbu people especially Sherpa ethnic community they can explore the village of Khumjung and Khunde too. Tengboche as a last destination in Everest View Trek is also a quality option where trekkers can gain much more tranquility, spiritual awakening and splendid view of Mt. Everest.

Upon our arrival at the Tribhuwan International Airport (TIA) in Kathmandu, we will be greeted by a representative from Himalayan Aster who will take us to our hotel. After checking in, we may take a rest or visit Himalayan Aster’s office. In the evening there will be a welcome dinner in a traditional Nepali Restaurant where we will be able to enjoy authentic Nepali cuisine with a brief cultural program. Overnight in Kathmandu.
Today after breakfast, we start a guided tour to several of the most historical and spiritual attractions in Kathmandu which are also listed as UNESCO World Heritage sites. We visit the historic Durbar Square, the sacred Hindu temple of Pashupatinath, the famous ‘Monkey Temple’ (Swayambhunath) and Buddhist shrine (Bouddhanath), which is also one of the largest stupas in the world. At noon, we get our equipment checked by our climbing leader, get introduced to fellow participants, and discuss our trip at Himalayan Aster’s office. Overnight in Kathmandu.
During the 40-minute flight from Kathmandu to Lukla (9,186ft), we enjoy one of the most beautiful air routes in the world culminating on a hillside surrounded by high mountainous peaks. At Lukla, a gateway destination from where our trek begins, we meet our other crew members and begin packing and arranging with them. From Lukla, we start trekking. At one hour’s gradual descent, we will be at a Cheplung village from where we have a glimpse of Mt. Khumbila (18900 ft), a sacred mountain which has never been climbed. From Cheplung, we then gradually descend until we reach Phakding and spend the night.
Walking through a beautiful pine forest, we follow the trail north up the valley of Benkar. We then cross Dudh Koshi River and go on passing Chumoa to Monjo, the entrance to Everest National Park. Then after crossing a suspension bridge, we pass Jorsale village and walk alongside of the Dudh Koshi and Bhote Koshi rivers. A steep ascent brings us to the prime heartland of Sherpa village – Namche Bazaar. At one hour’s distance to reaching Namche Bazaar, if the weather permits, we can view the sights of Mt. Everest and Mt. Lhotse. Overnight in Namche Bazaar.
There are plenty of things to do around Namche Bazaar, and we can spend a day here acclimatizing. Namche Bazaar is the main centre of the Khumbu region and has government offices, ATMs, Internet cafes, shops, restaurants, and a colorful market. Our guides can take us to explore the real charm of Namche Bazaar. Hiking to Sagarmatha National Park rewards trekkers with a sunrise view and the views of Mount Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, Kongde and so on. If we are interested in a day hike, we trek to Khumjung village (12401 ft)-a beautiful village with a Sherpa settlement. In exploring Namche Bazar, we observe traditional Sherpa life, Khumjung Hillary School, and enjoy flora and fauna found at such a high altitude. Overnight in Namche Bazaar.
Today’s journey starts with a climb up to the famous airstrip at Syangboche. Just above the airstrip is the Everest View Hotel from where we can enjoy an up-close view of the mighty Everest. We continue trekking to Khumjung village which is surrounded by Kondge, Thamserku and the sacred Khumbila mountains. While here, we visit the Edmund Hillary School and Khumjung Monastery (a monastery famous for housing the head of the Yeti!). Overnight in Khumjung.
We descend to Dudhkoshi River and pass through beautiful villages on the way. We walk on a forest trail which will take us to a riverbed. Next, we ascend for around two more hours through pine and fir forests to reach a small village of Tengboche. The village is also home to the famous Tengboche Gumba which is situated at 3,867 m and is the largest monastery in the Khumbu region of Nepal. We tour the Gumba and enjoy a panoramic view of the Himalayas, including Tawache, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku and Everest. Overnight in Tengboche.
From Tengboche, a steep descent of about 1500ft/500m will take us through rhododendron bushes and fir trees to the Dudh Koshi River. We continue on our trail and pass Tashinga and Sansa villages before reaching Kyangjuma. While here, we get to appreciate spectacular views of Ama-dablam, Thamserku, Nuptse, Lhotse and Everest. Overnight in Kyangjuma.
We have to reach Namche Bazaar first then continue to Monjo. The trail clings to the steep wooded slope beyond Kyangjuma, winding through several bends. We keep an eye for wildlife such as mountain goats, snow leopards, colorful pheasants, etc. when passing through a forest trail. A steep descent takes us to a bridge over the Dudh Koshi River. We cross the river twice at separate locations before reaching Monjo.
The trail descends steeply before it cuts up to the airstrip in Chauri Kharka. On the way we pass Phakding and Chopling villages. The climb from Chauri Kharka is the final climb of the trek. As the local staff you met in Lukla will not be accompanying you to Kathmandu, today is last day you celebrate your accomplishment together. Overnight in Lukla.
We take an early morning flight to Kathmandu. Our trip leader will drop us off at our hotel and we have the rest of the day off. We can stroll around the streets in Thamel, a popular Tourist hub in Kathmandu for some souvenir shopping. You may also visit popular tourist attractions nearby. Either way, there will be a farewell dinner to celebrate the successful completion of our journey. Overnight in Kathmandu.
Our journey comes to an end today. A representative from Himalayan Aster will drop us off at the airport approximately 3 hours before our scheduled flight. On our way home we will have plenty of time to plan our next adventure in the wonderful country of Nepal.
