Everest Panorama Trek, also commonly known as Everest View Trek is a short, yet a very wonderful introduction of the motherland of Mt. Everest (Khumbu region), and the legendary Sherpas and their culture. Starting from Lukla, this trail takes you all the way up to Tengboche that greets you with 360 degree view of the glorious Everest panorama, accompanied by Nuptse, Lhotse, Tawache, Thamserku and Amadablam. The trail also offers splendid views of other peaks like Khumbila (God of Khumbu), Kangtega, and Kwangde. The Sagarmatha National Park, hosting varieties of flora, fauna (musk deer, snow-leopard, bear, wild goat), birds (Himalayan cock, pheasants, wild pigeon), Tengboche monastery (3,867m) – the highest Buddhist monastery, and Namche Bazaar, a town featuring all the modern facilities are other highlights of the trekking to Everest panorama.
March-May and October-December is considered the best time to plan Everest view trekking, though, this trek can be planned any time of the year. However, planning Everest Panorama Trekking in autumn season in the month of October-November presents you the opportunity to witness Mani Rimdu festival (19 days long festival) and the ceremonies and dances performed during the festival at Tengboche monastery.
Amigo Treks and Expedition offers customizable 10 Days Everest Panorama trek package that also allows you to enjoy picturesque villages, ancient Buddhist monasteries decorated with prayer flags and wheels, intricately carved Mani stone walls, Sherpa museum, Pine and Rhododendron forest and the most important of all, the sunrise and the sunset in the Himalayas. Everest panorama trekking is also an easy trek perfect for elderly people, children and first timers looking for a glimpse of Mt. Everest without ascending the height. This trek is also a very good option for those trekkers who are physically not prepared for an Everest Base Camp trek (15 days).
This trek is best for the people who are here on a very short vacation. Nevertheless, it is also possible to customize this trek to your requirements and budget guaranteeing 100% departure date.
