Mount Everest view trekking also known as Everest Panorama trekking not only for its proximity to the world’s highest mountain, but also for its friendly Sherpa people. The Everest View trek or Panorama trek is a shorter trek than the Base Camp trek with the famous Tengpoche monastery at 3870m being the high point.
It is designed for those who wish to experience this region without ascending to high altitude. Entry to the Khumbu is by air into the airstrip at Lukla, and from here we follow the route of the Base Camp trek to Tengpoche monastery. From here we obtain breathtaking views of Everest as it rises above the Lhotse-Nuptse ridge, as well as a superb view of one of Nepal’s most beautiful mountains, Ama Dablam – the ‘Matterhorn of the Khumbu’.
