The Everest view trek Nepal offers a lifetime journey while maintaining a relatively low elevation. The trek begins with a thrilling Lukla flight and goes up to Tengboche village, the highest point of the trek. In Namche Bazaar, you will spend a couple of nights and hike to Hotel Everest View and Syangboche Airstrip. And visit the biggest monastery in the Khumbu region in Tengboche village.

If this is your first time trekking in the Himalayas, you will learn a lot about the Himalayan trail and climate. Along the way, you can see diverse flora and fauna. The trail is shared with yaks and mules carrying loads. Likewise, the tranquility and rejuvenating air surrounding the trail lets you unwind. The landscapes vary as you gain elevation.

Himalayan mountains like Thamserku ( 6,608 m/21,680 ft), Kongde Ri (6,187 m/20,299 ft), Khumbila (5,761 m/18,901 ft), Chamlang (7,319 m/24,012 ft), Lhotse (8,516 m/27,940 ft), Nuptse (7,861 m/25,791 ft), Ama Dablam ((6,812 m/22,349 ft), Everest(8,849 m/29,032 ft), and many others are seen along the way.

A typical day on the Everest view trek

Usually, your day will begin early with a serene landscape and the soothing calmness of the surroundings. We gather in the dining area, and the guide will brief you about the trail ahead. We will chit-chat and have a warm breakfast. After breakfast, we pack our bags and get ready to trek. Our goal is to leave the village where we spend the night between 7:00 AM to 8:00 AM.

You will have lunch along the way. The porters will be ahead of us, so pack the essentials you may need while trekking in the day pack that you will carry. Once we reach the village, we'll spend the night, get settled in, and gather in the dining area to have a warm dinner.

Kathmandu Lukla flight

Kathmandu Lukla flight is quite famous for its location, elevation, and small runway. Lukla is the starting point of our Everest view trekking, and there is no alternative option. Located at 2,846 meters (8,563 ft), the quickest way to reach Lukla is by short 30 minutes flight from Kathmandu airport or 20 minutes flight from Manthali airport.

Depending upon the air traffic in Kathmandu airport in the peak trekking season, the Lukla flight mostly gets transferred to Manthali airport, which is located a 4-5 hours drive from Kathmandu.

So, if you are doing Everest view trek in spring or autumn, there is a high chance you will catch the flight from Manthali airport. However, if you are doing Everest view trek in summer/monsoon or winter, the Lukla flight is usually operated from Kathmandu airport.

Do you need a guide for the Everest view trek? Can I trek alone?

Yes, you will need a guide for the Everest view trek. And no, you cannot trek alone. As per the recent regulations, trekking without a guide in Nepal is banned to maintain the safety of solo trekkers. Trekking with a guide enhances your experience. With safety, you also get to learn many insights about the region and the locals.

Everest view trek difficulty & altitude sickness

Terrain: Everest view trek route is uneven, with decent ascents and descents. The trail from Lukla goes to Phakding via lush forests. From Phakding to Namche Bazaar, the route is densely forested and crosses many suspension bridges. The final ascent to Namche Bazaar is steep. Likewise, to reach Tengboche, there is a long descent to Phungi Thanka before a steep ascent to Tengboche village.

Elevation and altitude: The altitude sickness risk during the Everest view trek is minimal. Even though the highest point of this trek is 3,962 m/13,000 ft (Hotel Everest View) and 3,860 m/12,660 ft (Tengboche village), you see a major elevation change from Kathmandu to Lukla, which can trigger altitude sickness. However, to avoid it, we drop down to Phakding village on the same day to spend the night and acclimatize.

Likewise, we also spend two nights in Namche Bazaar (3,440 m/11,290 ft), which also allows us to adjust to the elevation. The guide will keep an eye on your health and monitor your oxygen level. Keep yourself hydrated and do not rush, you will be totally fine doing Everest view trekking. If you feel any discomfort, feel free to share with our guide.

Everest view trek preparation

You do not have to do much to prepare for the 9 days Everest view trek as it is a pretty easy and short trek. We need a basic level of fitness, and the trekker should be able to walk at least 6 hours a day.

You can go on regular long walks and exercise before joining the trek. If possible, do a few day hikes and involve cardios, like swimming, cycling, jogging, running, etc. It will help you build stamina and endurance.

Instead of wearing brand-new trekking boots during the trek, we recommend getting them early and letting your feet get used to them. Everest view trek is perfect for beginner trekkers.

Everest view trek elevation and altitude profile

The Everest view trek begins at Lukla ( 2,846 m/9,337 ft) and then ascends to Namche Bazaar (3,440 m/11,290 ft) via Phakding (2,610 m/8,563 ft). From here, you will go on a hike to Hotel Everest View (3,962 m/13,000 ft) and Syangboche Airstrip (3,748 m/12,297 ft).

The trail then ascends to Tengboche monastery (3,860 m/12,660 ft), where the trek ends the next day, and retrace the trail back to Lukla ( 2,846 m/9,337 ft) via Namche Bazaar (3,440 m/11,290 ft).

However, if you are up for the little challenge, then you can also do Everest view trek in the summer/monsoon and winter seasons.

Everest view trek in spring

Spring (March to May) is the best time of the year for the Everest view trek. The climate begins to warm up as the day passes by. The mountain views are excellent topped with a white blanket of snow. The mild climate and clear sky welcome beautiful landscapes. Spring is the beginning of the trekking season in Nepal, and thus many travelers hit the trail.
