Everest View Trek

Everest View Trek in Nepal is something more than the sum total of experiencing mountains from a close distance.

It is another shortest trek in the Everest region. It is ideal for those who have short holiday in Nepal and want to see Mt. Everest and experience the Sherpa culture without making ascent to higher altitude. We fly from Kathmandu to Lukla and walk through the Everest National Park up to Namche Bazaar, the biggest Sherpa settlement in the Everest region. During the walk through the park we come across pine forest, Rhododendron flowers in full bloom and abundance of wildlife. We spend a couple of days in Namche Bazaar to get acclimatized and enjoy the awe-inspiring Himalayan views of Mt. Everest (8848 m), Mt. Nuptse (7879m),  Mt. Lhotse (8501m), Mt. Amadablam (6856m) and Mt. Thamserku (6608m). Also, we will have  an  opportunity to see the Sherpa culture and their astonishing  traditional life style, Buddhist monasteries, Hillary school and the famous Yaks carrying loads on the trails.

We again cross the Dudh Kosi, to the western bank at Jorsale prior to trekking through the entrance to the Sagamartha National Park. Continuing upstream along the banks to the confluence of the Bhote Kosi and Dudh Kosi, it is here we begin our first sustained ascent to Namche Bazar after crossing the large suspension bridge. Walking at a slow pace, we have a fantastic photographic opportunities as the peaks of Everest (8848m), Lhotse (8511m), Nuptse (7879m), Arna Dablam (6856m) and Taweche (6542m) come into view for the first time. Climbing again, the path takes us through pine trees to reach the distinctive horse-shoe shaped bowl containing the village of Namche Bazar. Stay in the heart of the village. Overnight at Lodge.
