Everest Panorama Trekking

Everest Panorama Trekking

The Everest Panorama trek is entertained from the north east of Kathmandu Valley. The Everest Panorama trek is especially designed for that trekkers who have limited time for trekking though don't want to miss the awe-inspiring and breathtaking views of the world's highest Mountain Everest (8,848 m.). Everest Panorama Trek is an easier option than the full Everest trek reaching Buddhist monastery of Tengpoche at the height of 3867 meters.

The Everest Panorama Trekking is less difficult than the other Everest treks and is a short and scenic trek, offering fabulous view of the world’s highest peaks, including Everest, Lhotse, Thamserku, Ama Dablam and many other snowy peaks going on with rich Sherpa culture & lifestyle. The Everest Panorama Trek is a great introduction to Sherpa countryside and its culture with mesmerizing mountain views, one of the most popular destination for first time trekkers in Nepal. For this trekking, we may fly from Kathmandu to Lukla runway in the Khumbu region and trek up to Namche Bazar, Tyangboche (famous for its monastery) and into the Khumjung village, a very nice settlement of Sherpas.
