Overview

The Everest View Trek is the best choice for those who are looking to travel to the Everest Region, specifically the Everest Base Camp Trail, but have limited time. The five-day trek gives the perfect window of opportunity to see the world’s highest mountain. It is a short and easy trek that even beginners can take on.

The panoramic views of the mountains of the Khumbu Region are truly a sight to behold. Your trek begins with a flight to Lukla from Kathmandu or Manthali early in the morning. After you land at Lukla’s Tenzing-Hillary Airport after probably one of the most thrilling flights of your life. You begin your trek to Phakding. You will have our professional and experienced guides with you throughout your journey. The trek to Phakding is approximately 4 hours, and then, on your third day, you will trek to Namche Bazaar.

Namche Bazaar, also known as the Sherpa Capital, is a very picturesque village filled with warm and hospitable people with a unique culture that is surrounded by snow capped mountains. The Sherpa Village will enchant you with the bustling atmosphere of the pubs, bakeries, and local shops.

The next day was special as we hiked to get the best view of Everest. The trail is filled with dense alpine forests of rhododendron trees, and along the flowing river of Dudh Koshi, you will be taken into another world. The hike to the Hotel Everest is an uphill path, and first, you will get to see the beautiful sight of Ama Dablam. As you reach the hotel, you will be awe-struck by the sight before you. You will also get to witness the world’s highest airport, Syangboche Airport.

Your stop at Hotel Everest View will give you the perfect excuse for a snack and tea break while you enjoy the panoramic views of Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Nuptse, and Mt. Ama Dablam. Then, we move on to our second destination, Khumjung Village.

Khumjung Village is a small, quaint village surrounded by stone walls that house a Yeti Scalp in the Khumjung Monastery. The village is filled with rich Sherpa culture and surrounded by a diverse landscape. After exploring Khumjung and having our lunch, we make our way back to Namche Bazaar.

The next day, which happens to be the last day of trekking, you will hike back to Lukla, retracing your steps as you come. Then, on the fifth day, you will fly back from Lukla to Kathmandu, which ends your epic journey on the Everest View Trek.

Why should you do the short 5-day Everest Panorama View Trek in 2024/2025?

A short, budget-friendly, and inclusive trek The Everest View Trek, which is only 5 days long, is a very short and easy trek to the heart of the Himalayas, allowing you to experience the Everest region without setting foot at Everest Base Camp. This is very suitable for trekking enthusiasts who have limited time and budgets at their disposal.

Not only is it a short trek consisting of only five days, but the trek itself is very easy and can be inclusive of all age groups. This means even kids and senior citizens can experience the trek to view Everest. Moreover, you can also get the luxury of the trek by upgrading to our premium package.

The short Everest view hike is suitable for all age groups, from 5-year-olds to travelers as old as 75 years. There is no risk of experiencing altitude sickness when trekking in the Everest region for this hike.

Lukla “Tenzing-Hillary” Airport

The Tenzing-Hillary airport in Lukla, known for its short runway on a steep hill with a sheer drop, will undoubtedly be one of the most thrilling experiences of your lifetime. Lukla also marks the beginning of your adventurous trekking journey.

Namche Bazaar

Namche Bazaar itself is a popular destination for trekkers, as the village is filled with colorful rooftop tea houses surrounded by towering peaks and is also the gateway for all the Everest expeditions. The dominant Sherpa community, the backbone of trekking and expeditions in the Everest region, welcomes you with their warm hospitality and culture. This epic Namche village is located at an altitude of 3440 meters above sea level. 

Syangboche Airport

This might not be a known fact, but Syangboche Airport is the highest airport in the world. With a short runway, the airport is located at an elevation of 3780 meters. But due to operational difficulties, it remains closed today. But it still proves to be an important landmark for the Sherpa communities as well as the trekkers.

Hotel Everest View: Best Panoramic View of Mount Everest

Definitely the highlight of the entire trek, Hotel Everest View is the major destination of this trek. The Everest View Hotel is the perfect spot to see the awe-inspiring panoramas of the world’s highest mountain, Mount Everest, along with other equally beautiful peaks like Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Kangtega, and Thamserku. The hotel is located in the perfect spot to get the perfect view of Everest.  This hotel is considered to be the highest 5-star hotel in the world

Khumjung Village

Khumjung is another Sherpa village, just a few hundred meters above Namche Bazaar, where trekkers often make a plan to visit as a part of acclimatization. However, the true beauty of Khumjung village lies in its unique stone walls, humble villagers, and monastery. The monastery also houses the scalp of Yeti, which you can get a glimpse of when you visit.

Flight Options for the Everest View Trek

There are two flight options, depending on the season you choose. During the peak trekking seasons of March, April, and May (spring season) and September, October, and November (Autumn/fall) the flight operates from Manthali Airport in Ramechhap. It is a 4 hour drive from Kathmandu, which will be arranged by the agency.  

The second option is a direct flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and vice versa. This option is only available during the off-season in June, July, and August (summer) and in December, January, and February (winter). This is because, during the peak season, the air traffic from Kathmandu is very high compared to the off-season.

Note: Please be aware that flights solely depend on the weather, so there is always a chance of flights being delayed or even canceled during the trek. Therefore, keeping a buffer day on your itinerary will be very helpful.

What is the difficulty of the Everest View Trek? Is it for beginners?

The Everest View trek is considered to be not difficult but instead a very easy trek and is very suitable for beginner trekkers who wish to start their first trekking journey. This is a very family-friendly trekking trail where you can bring your kids as well as your older members for a good family trekking experience.

But of course, it goes without saying that you should have good stamina and strength, no matter how easy the trek is considered. Therefore, good preparation, both physically and mentally, prior to the trek will be a good place to start.

What is the best time for the Everest View Trek in 2024/2025?

Trekking in all seasons is possible, but some are better preferred than others. Spring and fall are the most popular and best times for trekkers, as the weather is very pleasant, and you will get the best view during this time.

Winter is also a good choice, given how clear the sky is compared to spring and autumn, but you need to be ready to withstand extreme cold. However, the Everest View Trek is only a short amount of time, which can be used to its advantage. Meanwhile, you can also go on a trek during the summer, but you have a low chance of getting clear views. More importantly, because of the rainy season, transportation by both air and land poses a risk.

Itinerary

Expand all +Collapse all -

Your Everest View Trek begins right here in Kathmandu! Your guide from Alpine Ramble Treks will pick you up in the morning, and you’ll make the short drive to the airport together. Your flight from Kathmandu to Lukla is renowned for its incredible Himalayan scenery, and you’ll want to take a window seat to make sure you don’t miss any of the awe-inspiring spectacles.

When we arrive in Lukla, you’ll quickly begin to appreciate the quirky little town’s status as the gateway to Mount Everest. We’ll meet our trekking crew, grab a bite to eat in one of Lukla’s many cafes, and set out on the trail. Our first day of hiking will take approximately four hours, bringing us across a scenic suspension bridge and passing through the Sherpa villages of Cheplung and Ghat. Along the way, we’ll enjoy our first tantalizing views of skyscraping Himalayan peaks before arriving in Phakding, where we’ll spend the night in a comfortable teahouse or trekking lodge.

Please note: Your flight to Lukla may depart from the Ramechhap Airport in Manthali rather than Kathmandu, due to ongoing upgrades at the Tribhuvan International Airport. Alpine Ramble Treks will keep you apprised of the situation and arrange any necessary additional transportation via microbus.

  • Accommodation type: Trekking Lodge/ tea house
  • Trekking time: 4 hrs
  • Meals : Breakfast + Lunch +Dinner (Included)
  • Max. Altitude: 2810 m

After breakfast, we’ll begin our second day on the Everest View Trek by following the banks of the Dudh Koshi river, crossing several suspension bridges bedecked with colorful prayer flags. The Hillary Bridge is the most notable, thanks to its especially dramatic placement above the rushing waters of the glacial river far below. The bridge is named after Edmund Hillary, who first reached the summit of Mount Everest along with Tenzing Norgay. After taking our time to cross the bridge, we’ll trek through verdant forests of pine and rhododendron for a few more hours to arrive at Namche Bazaar.

Namche, as it’s colloquially known, was once the trading hub of the entire Khumbu region. Today, it’s better known as the main center of commerce for trekkers coming and going to Everest Base Camp. But you don’t have to look far to discover the vibrant Sherpa culture that makes this part of Nepal so unique. After getting settled in at our trekking lodge, you’ll have the afternoon and evening free to explore the shops, restaurants, and cultural attractions here in Namche. Later this evening, we may be able to watch a complimentary documentary about Sherpa culture at a local tavern.

  • Accommodation type: Trekking Lodge/ tea house
  • Trekking time: 5 hrs Approx
  • Meals : Breakfast + Lunch +Dinner (Included)
  • Max. Altitude: 3,450m/11,315ft

Don’t be fooled—although it’s just a day hike, today’s adventure is sure to rate as your favorite part of the Everest View Trek! After breakfast this morning, we’ll embark upon an expedition to the Hotel Everest View. This uniquely situated hotel boasts what just might be the best views in Khumbu, and you’ll be able to enjoy a fantastic panorama where Thamserku, Taboche, Ama Dablam, and Everest itself are the stars of the show. But our hike is only half of today’s fun—on the way to the Hotel Everest View, we can visit the small monastery at Khumjung, where lucky visitors may be able to catch a glimpse of a purported yeti scalp. And on our way back from the hike, we can make a short detour to Tengboche to visit the oldest gompa in the region: Tengboche Monastery.

Our round-trip hike should only take about four or five hours to complete, and we’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the remaining points of interest in Namche Bazaar. One attraction you won’t want to miss is the Sherpa Culture Museum; after learning more about these friendly and fascinating people, you’ll also want to visit one of the many German bakeries which are revered amongst travelers in Khumbu. This evening, we’ll return to our teahouse accommodations for a hot meal and a warm bed.

  • Accommodation type: Trekking Lodge/ tea house
  • Trekking time: 5 hrs Approx
  • Meals : Breakfast + Lunch +Dinner (Included)
  • Max. Altitude: 3700 m (Everest view lodge)

Now that we’ve experienced the incredible majesty of the Khumbu for ourselves, it’s time to make our way back to Lukla. We’ll take our time on today’s hike, meandering through various Sherpa villages situated along the banks of the Dudh Koshi river and stopping to take more photographs of the unparalleled mountain scenery. Even with the sight of Mount Everest fresh in your memory, crossing the remarkable suspension bridges on today’s trek will reward you with stunning Himalayan vistas you won’t soon forget.

When we arrive in Lukla, we’ll drop off our luggage at our hotel and spend the rest of the afternoon and evening at our leisure. After bidding a fond farewell to the porters who have made your Everest View Trek possible, you can hop between Lukla’s many cafes and bakeries to savor the laid-back vibes of the town’s local hot spots. This evening, you’ll return to your hotel for one last night in the world’s tallest mountains.

  • Accommodation type: Trekking Lodge/ tea house
  • Trekking time: 5 hrs Approx
  • Meals : Breakfast + Lunch +Dinner (Included)
  • Max. Altitude: 2800 m

After an early breakfast, we’ll return to the airport in Lukla to catch our morning flight back to Kathmandu. As before, this flight should only take about half an hour—but thanks to your vantage point of the incredible mountain scenery, you’ll wish it were longer! When we arrive back in Kathmandu, you’ll get checked in at your hotel. The rest of the day will be free for you to enjoy exploring the markets and shops of the exciting Thamel neighborhood. We would also be happy to arrange for a cultural tour of the capital city’s many fascinating UNESCO World Heritage sites, including several important centers of the Buddhist and Hindu faith.

When it’s time for you to depart Nepal, a representative from Alpine Ramble Treks will transport you back to Tribhuvan International Airport in time for your outgoing flight. We are thrilled that you’ve chosen us to guide your Everest View Trek, and we hope you’ve had a marvelous time hiking in the world-famous Himalayas of Nepal. We can’t wait to see you again!

Trip Info

Additional Information for the Everest View Trek 2024/2025

There are quite a few options you can take for the Everest View Trek (Jeep, Flight, Helicopter Ride)

Drive from Kathmandu to Salleri (Via Local Bus), then from Salleri to Tham Dada (via four-wheeler jeep)

If, by any chance, you do not want to take the aerial route to Lukla, then you also have the option of driving. It will take you two more extra days. The first day of your trip will begin in Kathmandu and end in Phaplu, which is 9-10 9–10 hour drive, where you will be staying overnight.

The next day, you will drive from Phaplu to Thamdada and trek to Paiya. It is a 6-7 hour drive and a 4-5 hour walk from Thamdada to Paiya. Then, from Paiya, instead of Lukla, you will trek to Phakding the next day.

Helicopter Ride to Lukla

You also have the option of taking a direct helicopter ride to Lukla. From Kathmandu to Lukla and back on a shared basis with five persons for $500-700.

Note: The weather in Kathmandu and Lukla has a big impact on the flight and helicopter ride. As a result, there's a possibility of a few-hour delay and, in the event that the weather does not improve, the possibility of cancellation. Thus, in the event that such a situation arises, we kindly ask for your understanding and consideration.

Accommodation

You will have a standard tea house for accommodation, which provides you with a room with twin beds. But you can definitely upgrade your room and services for an additional price. You can get a single room with an attached bathroom. The Everest View Trek has five days in total, and the destinations you will be staying at have good variations of tea houses to choose from. So you can choose from very affordable to a premium tea house.

Meal Options

The lunch and dinner during the trek are Dal, Bhat, and Tarkari, which are the standard Nepali meals. It is the best option during the trek, as it is filling and gives you the needed energy for your trek. But it is not limited to only that; in fact, you can have western food too.

We would also like to know if you have any food restrictions or allergies so we can avoid cross-contamination and an overall health hazard. Your safety is our first priority.

Training and Preparation for the Everest View Trek

The Everest View Trek is relatively easier compared to the Everest Base Camp Trek. With only five days at your disposal, the altitude you gain is less than 4000 meters. But this does not mean you can do it easily without any prior preparation. Keeping yourself in good shape by doing exercises like running can help build your stamina for the hike. Focusing on cardiovascular exercises will be a good way to prepare for the trekking journey. It is imperative that you start training at least a month before your scheduled journey.

And equally important is your mental strength for a smooth sailing trekking experience. Both physical and mental well-being go hand in hand while trekking.

Water and Electricity

Water and electricity will be available throughout the entire trek. It is something you do not need to worry about. Drinking tapped, cold water is absolutely free but you have to pay extra for hot water. You will also have to pay to charge your electronics.

Communication during the trek

Communication networks are easily available during this trek. The guide will always be in contact with the company, giving us updates on the situation. You can also enjoy wifi services at an additional price.

Hiring Porter and Luggage Storage

While it is not required, having a porter on a trek will undoubtedly be very beneficial. You can hire a porter even after reserving a trek or after you get to Nepal. Our porter carry maximum weight of 24 kgs.

Alpine Ramble will also give you a duffel bag, free of charge, to store all the stuff the porter carries for you. You can keep your lightweight, essential items in your own backpack. Additionally, Alpine offers free luggage storage for the duration of your hike.

Safety, Security, and Emergency Response

Your safety will always be our top priority. Your enjoyment and a safe trekking experience are important to us. It is therefore advised that you communicate your feelings to your guide at all times during the trek.

Since our guides are trained in first aid and emergency response, communication is crucial because, without the right information, they are unable to make an informed decision. Hence, while trekking, always disclose even the most insignificant information regarding your health to the guide. Should an emergency rescue arise, we will get in touch with your insurance provider and handle the situation accordingly.

Tipping and Gratitude

Tipping is a way to express your thanks and appreciation to the other porters and guides who worked so hard to ensure that your trip was trouble-free and enjoyable. Although there is not really a set amount for tips, it is generally accepted to tip a guide 15-20% of the total trip cost and porters 10-15%.

But ultimately, it is entirely up to you how much you tip. Although it is best to tip each person separately to recognize their contributions individually, you can also tip the group for their combined efforts.

What is a day of hiking on the Everest View Trek like?

Every day is a new and unique experience. Seeing the mountains from different angles and interacting with new people at every turn. However, a typical day of trekking includes the following:

Breakfast: 6:30 a.m.

Lunch: 1:00–2:00 pm

Dinner: 6:00–7:00 pm

Trekking time: 6 hours on average. (exceptions: some days can be shorter or longer than average.)

You will trek at a pace and make frequent stops for a small break to take sips of water or a bite of snacks. You will have plenty of time to make stops for photographs as well.

    Maddy - January 04, 2022

    My guide Sujal was so energetic, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and overall great company. Would highly recommend him for any of the treks. Alpine Ramble overall made my trip to EBC very smooth from the second I landed in Kathmandu. I felt very safe the entire time even though I went alone as a young female trekker.

    I had an Everest view trek as a solo travaller for 4 days and a city tour in Kathmandu with Alpine Ramble Treks. From the beginning to the end, Dil always answered my questions very quickly and kindly. He welcomed me in the very early morning in the airport and explained me the trip in details. Our driver speaks English well and he was very punctual and kind. During my trekking, my guide Dikrai was always very kind and did his best to make me feel comfortable. He also helped me to carry my bag. Because it was low season, I was free to choose any hotel I liked. And he was also flexible with the itinerary, when I’d like to change some things. They are the kindest company and always try their best for their guests and you feel it. I’d like to come back for a longer trek in the future to beautiful Himalayas with them! I definetely recommend Dil and his team.

    Thank you Alpine Ramble Treks for unforgettable moments you arranged for us in Nepal. Special thanks belongs to Dil, who organised everything we could wish for. Everything went smoothly and even when plans had to be changed, he was happy to help and solve every single requirement we had. 

    Dil welcomed us at the airport when we arrived to Kathmandu and his personal dedication is really amazing. 
    Dil booked helicopters for us from Kathmandu to Lukla where we started our Everest view trek. We had just 4 days for trekking, which is not enough to see Mt. Everest. Dil arranged other helicopters to get us from Namche Bazar to Kala Patthar, where our dream came true and we saw the best of Nepal - Mt. Everest itself. 
    We didn't come to Nepal just for trekking, we also wanted to enjoy adrenaline sports like white river water rafting, bungy jumping and canyoning. Again - Dil arranged a transport for us to The last resort where we stayed the last night and we were able to enjoy lots of fun. 
    It was really difficult for us to say good bye to Dil at the airport and leave beautiful Nepal, but we all surely know who to contact for our next expedition - Dil & Alpine Ramble Trecks.

    I could not have wished for a better experience in Nepal with the Alpine Ramble team. I met with Dil the moment I arrived and immediately felt relaxed about the mammoth trek I'd signed up to do.

    Everything was made so simple - pick up from the airport on arrival, organising a down jacket and sleeping bag, and discussing plans for the coming days. I had the freedom to adjust the trek if needed and fully understand the next 8-9 days in the Everest region.

    Due to airport maintenance, there are still a lack of flights direct from Kathmandu to Lukla, but Dil also managed to get me on one, saving a long 4 hour bus ride to another airport. Hero.

    My guide, Dik Rei, was absolutely brilliant. I was travelling solo, but he became a real friend to me and supported me so much throughout the trek. Having a guide local to the area meant he could provide so much information, knew people on the way, and was also able to provide the best accommodation. I always had a room to myself, often with the best view of the mountains as well, which made waking up in the cold temperatures that little bit easier!

    The trek is very hard but it's all about will power and a positive mental attitude. With that, it can definitely be achieved and the views are worth all the pain to the top! I'm already desperate to return to the mountains.

    On my return to Kathmandu, I was once again greeted by Dil and he helped me for the remaining days of my trip with advice, taxis and anything else I needed.

    I can't recommend Alpine Ramble highly enough. Absolutely fantastic in all aspects and I will 100% return to do ABC with the team.

    My family of 4 went on the Everest Panorama View Trek organised by Dil from Alpine Rambles.

    Despite a very last minute request, Dil managed to make all the necessary arrangements (TIMS, permits, air tickets, guide and porter engagements, etc) in time for us to start our adventure.

    Sujal (our guide) is very helpful and attentive. Constantly checking on us. Especially on the last 2 days, whereby our flights from Lukla to Kathmandu got cancelled two days in a row due to bad weather.

    He stayed by us, making sure we got a room, had food, helped reschedule our air tickets, despite having his job “officially” done since we only signed up for 8 days. And ultimately, helped to arrange for helicopter ride back to Kathmandu. It is because of the unexpected flight cancellations that I feel very glad to have gone on this trek with Alpine Ramble. We felt we were in good hands.

    Prem (our porter) is a very humble and smiley diligent worker. Throughout the trek, he walked together (usually just slightly behind) with us, despite having a load.

    In short, you will be in good hands when you have your adventures with Alpine Rambles.
