Package Details

Everest View Trek allows you to fulfill your desire to see the bright view of Everest while also getting a close look at the Sherpa way of life. The Everest trek is ideal for hikers who have limited time but a strong desire to see the world's highest mountain. The trek to Everest Base Camp has quickly become one of the most popular trekking routes in Nepal. Sherpas make up the vast majority of the residents in this area. The majestic mountains, overcrowded mountain villages, isolated monasteries, Namche Bazar (the gateway to the Everest region), and the Tyangboche monastery beneath are all unique. The primary allure of this region is the summits of Amadablam and Everest. This walk will astound you with its breathtaking views of four 8,000-meter peaks (Mt. Everest-8848m, Lhotse-8516m, Makalu-8463m, and Chooyu-8153m). In addition, the view of the beautiful mountain "Amadablam (6856)" will astound you (Khumbu Matterhorn).

The Everest View Trek has a lot to do with the Everest panorama. Everest View Trek offers scenic landscapes of Nepal's mountains as well as unique cultural encounters with the Sherpas and their rich culture closely related to Buddhism. This hike is ideal for those who want to enjoy the surreal beauty of the Nepalese Himalayas, particularly Everest, while taking it easy.
