The Everest View Trek is one of the most popular beginner-friendly treks in the Everest region for those who are looking for a short holiday in Everest but also have a dream to view Mt. Everest and observe the Sherpa culture without climbing to a higher altitude. A short Everest View hike begins with a flight from Manthali Airport to the famous Lukla Airport. Then begins the ascent towards the Everest National Park until Namche Bazaar, which is the biggest Sherpa residence in the Everest region and is known today for its’ many shops and hotels. Here it is possible to see spectacular and fascinating Himalayan views of Mt. Everest (8848 m), Nuptse (7879m), Lhotse (8501m), Amadablam (6856m), and Thamserku (6608m). You will also have the opportunity to experience the Sherpa culture and their wonderful ancient lifestyle by visiting museums and Buddhist monasteries and interacting with the people. Take in the sights, sounds, smells, and exquisite tastes on this short trek in the Everest region. If you change your mind to head up to Everest Base Camp, or Gokyo Lake, let us know.

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 give you 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 Namche Bazaar Everest View Trek is the shortest way to see Mount Everest from Kathmandu by trekking in the Everest (Sagarmatha) Khumbu Region. At Kathmandu International Airport on the first day, our staff will meet you. The trek guide and company leader will explain your Everest Tour Plan and the trek gear 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.

Everest View Trekking Itinerary Overview

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 metres. The trekking trail is more scenic, diverse, and photogenic on this day. We will pass through local villages with colourful 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. The mules and Jhopkes, who carry supplies for the tea houses, will interestingly keep us at the rope bridges. 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 chose to go for a sunrise view up to 3,880 metres, 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. Your guide will provide coffee at this location. After getting emotional, the guide will lead you to Khumjung Village, where you can see Yeti sculp, monasteries, the 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 trek 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. This Namche Everest View trek is a beginner-friendly trek, and 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 Holiday does not have any challenging sections or illnesses, 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 do you prepare yourself for 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 8–15 kg 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 practicing yoga. These simple exercises will help you both 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.

You have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to stand close to the world's tallest mountain.

The Himalayas are healing for many people, and also, Nepalese people believe that it's a daily process of life to worship a god. Be a part of this amazing journey to experience spirituality in its rawest form. The Short Mount Everest View Trek will give you a wide range of landscapes, rich cultures of Nepalese people, and the heart of the Sherpa people. Every easy or difficult trip needs some effort from yourself and the colours that we have to add during your journey, of which we are aware. Not only does every trek or tour operator want to make their clients happy and satisfied, but some may have had terrible experiences due to various factors. But we assure you that all colours, religions, groups of humans, or nature belong to our friends, family, and parts of us. Just the emotions won't work, so we will meet all safety requirements, and it's best to cooperate with professional organisations.  We have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to stand close to the world's tallest mountain with our team.

The Mani Rimdu is performed in Tengboche during the ninth Tibetan month, which usually coincides with the full moon in October or November.The 15th, 16th, and 17th of November 2024 have been set aside as the Mani Rimdu Festival dates.
