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.
