Overview

The Everest Panorama Trek explores the Everest or Khumbu Region to the northeastern side of Nepal. The trekkers go through the Sherpa settlements of Namche, Phakding, and Tengboche on the journey. The trekkers can also see Sherpa's lifestyle and culture throughout the trek. Furthermore, this trek shows the influence of Buddhism in the lives of people. Trekkers can easily see this by visiting the ancient monasteries at Tengboche and Khumjung villages. Sherpa people also offer warm hospitality to the trekkers on the trip.

The Everest Panorama Trek starts after your arrival in Kathmandu. Kathmandu is the lowest altitude on the trek at 1300 meters. As we move forward, the trail reaches the maximum altitude of 3860 meters at Tengboche village. Trekkers might also need to walk along challenging trails on the trek. On average, trekkers will have to walk around 7 hours a day. So, trekkers should be in good physical condition for the trek. Due to the high altitude, the climate is very cold and trekkers need to wear warm clothing. Similarly, trekkers can also choose other treks in the Everest region as well. Everest Base Camp Trek, Everest High Passes Trek, and Gokyo Lakes Trek are the best treks. September to November (autumn) is the best month to do the Everest Panorama Trek.

Eternal Himalaya is one of the biggest names in Nepali tourism. As such, we provide quality services on all our trips. Our guides and porters for the Everest Panorama Trek and other Everest treks are highly experienced as well. Above all, we ensure you a safe traveling experience.
