Everest view trekking 

The Everest view trekking offers excellent views of Mt. Everest and the main peaks of the Khumbu without going to extreme altitudes. The trek begins from Lukla after short and scenic fly from capital city of Nepal, Kathmandu. The adventure begins as we land at its tiny runway. We spend two days trekking through the homelands of the Sherpa people, among their typical villages, cultures and Buddhist monasteries, Dudh Koshi river .Then we enter Namche Bazaar, the principle town of the area and the Sherpa 'capital.' After a day of acclimatization we explore the traditional Sherpa villages of Khunde and Khumjung Monastery, Yeti skull and also the one hour walk up to the Everest view Hotel (3850m./12705ft.) above Namche for the sunset view of Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Lhotse and Everest.We then trek to Thyangboche - the site of Nepal's most sacred Buddhist monastery. The view from this ridge above the Dudh Kosi River is possibly the most beautiful with Mt. Everest looming over the Lhotse Ridge and Ama Dablam towering above the monastery. We swing back to Namche and Lukla to end the trek with a flight back to Kathmandu.

This trek offers more of everything packed into short eventful holidays- more mountain views, more culture, more nature, more hospitality, more surprises, more, more.

TREKKING GRADE

It's important to match your fitness level. Find what you think will suit you best in the tables below:

Easy

Easy trekking by Himalayan standards is generally up to 2800m. There are plenty of ups and downs on well-maintained trails. This type of trip is best suited for those who lead a reasonably active life. The trek takes about 3 to 7 days, walking about 4 to 5 hours a day.

Moderate

this involves longer treks (eight to fifteen days) on maintained trails. This type of trek includes day excursions to higher elevations, for which it's advisable to have some previous hill- walking experience. On these treks, we generally achieve an altitude between 1100 m to 3200 m.

Strenuous

these treks must be fully supported. We climb to altitudes between 3200 and 5000m. and there are overnight stays at altitudes above 4000m. For this trek, trekkers should be fit and enthusiastic hill walkers prepared to tackle difficult terrain in remote areas.

Very strenuous

this trek is best described as Alpine, and suitable is suitable for those in excellent health, capable of carrying a backpack, when required. The trek covers very remote areas, traveling over snow-covered passes at altitudes of up to 6500m. You will need to axes and crampons. No strenuous trek should be undertaken without medical clearance.
