Whilst for many a visit to the foot of Mount Everest is a personal goal, for some it is enough to visit the Everest or Khumbu region and experience the culture, the people, and the spectacular scenery. The Everest View 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 plane into the airstrip at Lukla, and from here we follow the route of the Base Camp trek to Tengpoche monastery. 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’. We return to Lukla by a slightly different route via Khumjung.
This is a short but classic trek which allows access to the most spectacular mountain views in the world, in a shorter time frame. Accommodation and food is provided in the local lodges. Clients often extend this trip to two full weeks by taking a rafting trip or a visit to Chitwan National Park.

On the trek
Our trips are all operated on the GAP system - Guides, Accommodation, Porterage. Over our many years of experience we have realised that clients prefer to choose and pay for their own food and drink on the trail. Not only does this result in a more cost effective regime but it takes into account the many factors that can influence our clients choice. Some clients prefer a hearty breakfast with relatively light lunches and dinners, whilst others prefer the opposite and so we allow our clients to make their choices and the sirdar helps to settle bills as we progress along the trail. We recommend that you allow US$25 per day for food and drink.
