What to expect on the Everest View Trek?
We at Day Tour Nepal will do our best to make your Mount Everest View Trek memorable and a good return on your vacation investment. We will try to make things possible in any condition, such as flight cancellations, delays, or bad weather. If necessary, we will make a suitable plan as an alternative.
The Mount Everest View Trek is the shortest way to see Mount Everest from Kathmandu by trekking in the Everest (Sagarmatha) Khumbu Region. On the first day, you will be met by our staff at Kathmandu International Airport. The trek guide and company leader will explain your Everest Tour Plan and the trek gears checklist, even though the trek is short. Eat and talk to your guide to get to know each other better at the same hotel or a nice restaurant in Kathmandu.
The next morning, we will drive from Kathmandu to Manthali Airport to take a scenic flight to the most adventurous airport in the world, Lukla. The flight to Lukla will operate from Manthali during the peak season, such as October-November and March-May. The rest of the time, there will be a direct flight to Lukla. To shorten the duration of the Everest Trek, many agencies send Sherpa Guides from Lukla, but with us, you will have a guide from Kathmandu.
After landing at Lukla Airport, you will feel the cold air and also an emotional feeling that you have landed safely with the mountain peaks around you. If the weather is clear and there are no clouds, we will be able to see the snow-capped mountain peaks during the flight. The Sherpa porter will be waiting at the airport for you. After a short tea break, we will start our trek to Phakding. The trek to Phakding is easy and takes about 4 hours. Along the way, we will pass through local villages, farmlands, rivers, waterfalls, monasteries, and mountains. Lunch will be served along the way. You can choose from a variety of menu items, such as Nepali dal bhat, momo, soup, Tibetan bread, pizza, pasta, fried rice, or noodles. Phakding Village is near the Dudh Koshi River. In the evening, enjoy walking around the village. If you love photography, take your camera and walk with the guides.
The second day of the Mount Everest View Trek from Phakding to Namche is not as easy as the first day. You will have to ascend to Namche Bazar, which is at an altitude of 3,440 meters. The trekking trail is more scenic, diverse, and photogenic on this day. We will pass through local villages with colorful prayer flags, waterfalls, the Dudh Koshi River, pine forests, rhododendron forests, rope bridges, and the local Sherpa people's lifestyle. We will also see Mount Everest for the first time before reaching Namche. Interestingly, we will be stuck at the rope bridges by the mules and Jhopkes, who carry supplies for the tea houses. Finally, we will reach Namche Bazar. There are many fancy restaurants, bars, and clubs in Namche Bazar, but you may want to rest for the evening since we will be exploring the area the next day.
This morning, some people choose to go for a sunrise view up to 3,880 meters, which is the main destination of this Everest View Trek, the Everest Panorama Hotel. We will let you decide with your guide whether you want to go early in the morning before sunrise or after breakfast to the Everest viewpoint. The hike to the Everest viewpoint takes about 2-3 hours. You can take some beautiful pictures of Mount Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, the prettiest mountain Amadablam, Thamserku, and other peaks in the backdrop. The cost of the Mount Everest View Trek does not include breakfast at the Everest Hotel, but you can have breakfast there if you like. Coffee will be provided by your guide at this place. After getting emotional, the guide will lead you to Khumjung Village, where you can see Yeti sculptures, monasteries, Sir Edmund Hillary School, and the Sherpa people's lifestyle. We will return to Namche via Syangboche Airport. While walking this part, we will see yaks grazing around. Finally, we will visit the monastery in Namche and have free time for shopping and coffee in Namche. This is the last day in Namche.
The final ascent and descent to Lukla is the same way back as we walked before. There are no other trails to return to Lukla. Some luxury trekkers simply take a helicopter back to Lukla or Kathmandu, which can be arranged.
Everest Namche Trek– is this trip right for you?
We understand your willingness and dream to see the world's iconic peak, Mount Everest. Based on our past experiences, we would be happy to be a part of your journey regardless of your age. However, you must have stamina and be a bit trained for walking about 6-7 hours per day. We have hiked with 70-year-olds to Everest Base Camp, but this is just the shortest Everest trek up to Namche Bazar. If you love walking and hiking, then this is the right trip for you. However, if you do not enjoy walking and hiking, this might not be a good choice. Everest View Trekking does not have any challenging sections or illness, but mild headaches are normal at Namche. Just ask yourself if you are ready to walk for 6-7 hours per day, with breaks for tea, lunch, and photos. If you need to talk to one of our experts, please let us know.
How to prepare yourself for the Namche - Everest View Trekking?
Keep in mind that this is not the trek to Everest Base Camp. You do not need to train as intensely as if you were going to Base Camp or Kalapatthar. Since there will be a porter to carry your backpack, you will only be carrying your personal belongings, such as your wallet, camera, water for the day, and some snacks. However, you will still be walking for 4-7 hours a day, so it is important to build up your muscles for this. If you live near the woods or mountains, start walking with your backpack with 8-15kg in it. If you have bought new trekking boots, start wearing them from the beginning to train your feet. If you do not have time to go near the mountains or woods, you can train at home by walking up and down stairs, cycling, walking on a treadmill, doing breathing exercises, and yoga. These simple exercises will help you physically and mentally. Do not stress too much, just focus on making your legs strong for the ups and downs of the trek.
What should you pack for the Mount Everest View Trek?
Whether it is a "chicken trek" or an extreme trek, we must have proper gear and preparation is essential. Our Sherpa guides who do climbing and extreme treks say that the Everest View Trek is a "chicken trek" (but that's just for fun, don't underestimate it). First, we are not doing a camping trek, so we don't need any camping gear or food supplies to carry. Normal clothing and equipment are sufficient, and you can buy them back home or in Kathmandu, Nepal at a lower price.
First, you need proper hiking boots, even if we won't be walking over glaciers or rocky terrain. They protect your ankles, so they're essential. A waterproof daypack with wide shoulder straps and a length that fits your torso is also required. You will receive waterproof duffel bags from us in Kathmandu for the trek, so you can simply bring your suitcase.
Trekking poles are also helpful for maintaining balance and providing support. You don't need sleeping bags since there will be warm blankets, but if you have your own, it's better to bring it. One warm jacket (down) is essential, no matter what time of year you go. The Himalayan weather is unpredictable, so it's important to have one warm jacket. A waterproof Gore-Tex jacket or rain cover is another thing you shouldn't forget to pack, as well as a warm hat, breathable underwear (not cotton), other normal T-shirts, shorts, gloves, and an extra pair of long pants.
