Everest Panorama Trek is also known as Everest View trek. As compared to other trekking routes of Everest region, Everest Panorama Trek is relatively easy and short but it doesn’t take off any of the scenic beauty of trekking in the Everest region. Meeting the Sherpa villagers and its culture with great views some of the world’s highest mountains is the meaning of this offer.
Everest Panorama Trek starts from Lukla after half an hour of mountain flight from Kathmandu. After you get down at Lukla airstrip the trek starts on the way to Phakding, the first overnight place, following Dudha Koshi River. Next day you walk through the forest of rhododendron and magnolia and arrive in Namche, a bustling bazaar (market), that’s a junction for trekkers. You stay one more extra day at Namche for acclimatization. On that day you hike to Syangboche, one of the major spot for the view of Mt. Everest, Mount Lhotse, Mount Amadablam, Mount Thamserku, Mount Kwangde etc. Then a nice walk down to Khumjung village, a typical Sherpa village. Sherpas are ethnic people of the mountain region. Lots of the renowned climbers belong to this community. In Khumjung, you will be able to meet local people and see their lifestyle. Visiting Khumjung monastery is an option which you wouldn’t want to miss although it increases a little bit the walking time.
Next day you will trek to Tyangboche where a famous Tibetan Buddhist monastery is located. In Tengboche you might have the opportunity to meet Buddhist monks and see their rituals and other activities. Tyangboche is the final destination of Everest Panorama Trekking. From here you return back to Lukla airport. Everest Panorama Trekking is ideal for those people who desire to see some of the world’s highest mountains including Mt. Everest within the short length of time.

After entering the National Park, we will descend to Bhote Koshi River upon which we arrive at Jorsalle village.

You will have the day at your disposal and you can choose to do whatever you wish. One option can be to walk up to the Everest View Point Hotel and enjoy the view it offers. You can also choose to have a walk around Namche Bazaar and observe the local proceedings and lifestyle.
