About Everest Panorama Trek
Everest Panorama Trek offers a taste of the Everest region with its magnificent views, cultural highlights and non-stop natural splendor.
The majestic beauty of the Everest Region attracts travelers from all over the globe who have come to admire the astonishing setting of the Himalaya. Views include the world’s highest peak and surrounding mountains soaring into the skies.
This Everest Panorama Trek passes through the homeland of the famed Sherpa ethnicity. The Sherpa are especially renowned for their mountain skills. The Everest Panorama Trekking gives us a chance to observe the Sherpa lifestyle with wondrous Buddhist monasteries. Wildlife in this area includes exotic alpine animals including the elusive snow leopard and some people even think the yeti lives in the Himalaya here.
Our Everest Panorama trekking starts after a short, scenic flight over terraced farmland to the mountain airport of Lukla. We then take our time as we allow adequate time to adjust to the high elevation. We trek north up the Dudh Kosi Valley to the destination known as Namche Bazaar, a town at the gateway to the higher Himalaya. After visiting the famous Sherpa villages of Kunde and Khumjung we continue to the famous setting of Tengboche Monastery, the largest monastery in the region. From here we savor views of AmaDablam and much more before returning to Namche Bazaar.
We then make a pleasant return journey to Lukla following south along the Dudh Kosi Valley to return to the mountain airport at Lukla and a flight back to Kathmandu.
Recommended: Add a cushion of a few extra days in your onward travel schedule, advised as a margin of safety for your international flight from Nepal. Air travel between Kathmandu and Lukla is frequently delayed due to weather conditions and poor visibility. Flights often get behind schedule and delays can even last for days. Under these situations, High Camp Adventure will do its best to re-schedule flights to and from Lukla at first availability. However, the possibility of postponements of flights and even cancellations is a real possibility. We, therefore, advise that you schedule at least an extra two days cushion in your itinerary to avoid conflicts with international flights out of Nepal. In the event of prolonged delays, one option is to arrange a helicopter evacuation at your request. The additional cost of a helicopter flight would be between 500 to 1000 USD per traveler, exact cost dependent on demand and capacity. That said, we would also like to mention that it is also likely that there will be no delays whatsoever. In that case, High Camp Adventure can arrange activities with your additional days in Kathmandu before your flight home.
