As the trek progresses, breathtaking vistas of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, and other soaring peaks dominate the landscape, leaving trekkers in awe of nature's grandeur. The famed vantage point, Tengboche, with its ancient monastery and serene backdrop, presents a perfect opportunity for reflection and photography. The trek continues towards Khumjung and Khunde villages, providing an insight into the Sherpa way of life. Trekkers often visit the Hillary School and the Khunde Hospital, contributing to the region's welfare. Despite being a shorter trek, the Everest View Trek doesn't compromise on breathtaking panoramas and cultural encounters. It caters to a wide range of adventurers, from seasoned hikers to families with children or those short on time.

Trip Information

Arrival (free airport pickup)

Friendship World Treks provides free airport arrival and departure transfer for our valuable clients booking the Everest Panorama Trek package. Our representative will be at Tribhuvan International Airport, holding a pamphlet with your name. They will offer you a garland or a Khada as a welcome gesture and take you to your hotel in a private vehicle. We provide this service to ensure you do not face navigational or other problems in a foreign country.


Trek start

We will pick you up from the airport and take you to your hotel. You will require at least one overnight stay at a hotel in Kathmandu. The next day, early morning, you will take a domestic flight to Lukla that takes approximately 40 minutes. This package includes Kathmandu-Lukla- Kathmandu flight costs.



The Everest Base Panorama Trek is a 7-day hike requiring six nights of lodge-to-lodge stay at trek regions. We will arrange the best available lodges in those areas. You will stay five nights in rooms with an attached bathroom at Lukla, Phakding, and Namche (3N). In Tengboche, you will stay in a standard room. All rooms are twin-sharing rooms.

Solo trekkers will stay in single private rooms with an attached bathroom at Lukla, Namche, Phakding (3N), and a single standard room at Tengboche.

You will require two nights hotel stay in Kathmandu before and after the trek, but it is not included in the package. Kathmandu has a wide range of hotels that suit all budgets and tastes.


This trek takes you to high elevations in the periphery of the world’s highest peaks, which means you require carbohydrates, proteins, and other nutrients. Though the choices may be fewer, we will provide you with enough nutritious and tasty food during the trek.

We will provide seven breakfasts, seven lunches, and six dinners during the trek.

The menu contains traditional, Asian, and Western cuisine, but as we climb up, the menu gets shorter. We highly recommend liquids like green tea, lemon tea, hot lemon, ginger tea, and garlic soup(must) at high altitudes. Fresh vegetables are great for your health as well. We want you to try popular Nepali dishes – dal (lentil), bhat (rice), tarkari (curry), momos (dumplings), and Chow mein.

Though plenty of non-veg items will be available in trek regions, we do not recommend them because the meat in trek regions may not be hygienic. We highly encourage you to avoid dairy, alcoholic, caffeinated items, and hot chocolates.

All personal bills (alcoholic drinks, hot (tea/coffee), and cold drinks) in tea houses/Lodges or cafes except standard meals (Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner with seasonal fruits) are excluded from the package.



We assign one porter for every two trekkers. Per trekker luggage weight limit is 9 kg, so one porter will not carry more than 18 kg of combined luggage. We never overload our porters. Even though porters will carry most of your luggage, we expect you to carry a regular backpack for your valuables. We recommend you bring only the essentials to the trek. You can store your excess baggage in your hotel or our store for free. We will recheck everything (luggage, equipment, gear) before starting the journey.

Typical day

Each day comes with a unique trek experience, enjoying the scenery, taking photos, and exploring the local villages. Our experienced and friendly trek guides/Sherpas will share information about the places as you trek. Porters will carry our luggage, but you need to carry a small regular-day bag pack for valuable items.

The day starts with an early morning hot cup of tea/coffee, and we set off on the day’s walk around 7 to 8 am, depending on the duration and nature of the day’s walk.

After trekking for three to four hours, we serve lunch around midday on the route to the next destination. After lunch, we will rest for an hour and then continue. The afternoon walk will be shorter. Once you reach the overnight lodge/tea house, you can snack on the extra dietary food. In your free time, before dark, you can explore nearby places.

We will serve dinner around 6 to 7 pm. After dinner and before heading to bed, you can engage in friendly conversations and discuss your experience with each other. Your leader/guide will brief you about the next day’s plan. After this briefing and before going to bed, you can enjoy reading books, watching mountaineering videos if available, or playing board games like Monopoly or cards. Most foreigners also learn simple Nepali words from our crew.

Electricity and water

Throughout the lodges at Everest View Trek regions, you can get electricity for your camera and mobile for a small price. You can buy packed mineral water from local lodges or en-route shops. In addition, you can carry a water bottle and fill it with boiled or filtered water that you can purchase at lodges or tea houses. You should not drink water from rivers, taps, and wells in the trek regions for hygiene concerns.



During the Everest View Trek, you can use internet service at the lodges, but it comes with some extra service charge. Once we reach high altitudes, we will communicate by phone for safety. Friendship World Treks remains in contact with all its trek groups at least once daily through trek leaders to ensure everyone is safe and comfortable. If you want, you can buy a local sim in Kathmandu. However, depending on your network, the signals might not be strong enough.


Nepali culture accepts tipping. Tipping is at travelers’ discretion and should reflect the service rendered trek length and trek cost. We advise you to tip the crew collectively at the end of the trek.


Trek End

On the last day of your trek, in the morning, we will take you to Lukla for a 40-minute flight back to Kathmandu. The flight cost is included in this package. We hope you will have a relaxing flight as you relive the moments of your trek. You can spend the remaining day as you like. We will organize a farewell dinner later in the evening.


After completing the Everest View Trek, we will organize a farewell dinner in Kathmandu. After the trek, we will present you trek achievement certificate. This is also a perfect time to give us your feedback about the trip.


Useful Info

Lukla Aiport is very busy during the trekking season, but due to bad weather, there is a chance of flights getting canceled or postponed. Hence, we recommend you add two extra days to this trek package so that you will not miss your international flight back to your country. You can hire a helicopter in case of flight delays, but it will cost you between USD 500 to 1000. Similarly, the above itinerary is a general guideline. In rare cases, we might need to adjust the itinerary for circumstances beyond our control, such as bad weather, landslides, government decrees, etc.


Trip extension

After completing your trek, if you want to stay a couple of days extra in Nepal, we can arrange other activities for you – including exploring and sightseeing in and around Kathmandu Valley, Chitwan jungle safari, paragliding, rafting, canoeing, etc.



On the day of your departure back to your home country, our representative will pick you up from your hotel and transfer you to Tribhuvan International Airport. We hope you enjoyed your trek in Nepal and will be back for more adventures in the Nepali Himalayas. We provide around a hundred trek packages.

Trek season

The weather is the crucial factor you must consider while deciding to participate in Everest View Trek. Adventurers, locals, and trek enthusiasts hike to Everest Base Camp trek throughout the year, but there are ups and downs based on seasons. The best trek season is during the spring and autumn as the sky is crystal clear, the chances of rain are minimum, and there are no clouds. Clear azure skies provide the most spectacular vistas, while the favorable warm temperature makes the trek heavenly.

During winter, the trek becomes challenging due to heavy snowfall and cold temperatures, but it also excites some trekkers. Similarly, summer coincides with the monsoon in Nepal, so the path is a little slippery and wet.

January to February: This time is the coldest, especially from early January to early February. There is heavy snowfall in the trek regions resulting in frigid temperatures. Though the daytime may be warm and admirable with clear skies, the nighttime is extremely cold, but the trek is possible in these months. Friendship World Treks conducts safe Everest View Treks during these months, but if you are allergic to colds, you shouldn’t trek during these months.

Temperature: Temperatures range from 15°C to -5°C


March to April: It is one of the best seasons for Everest View Trek due to favorable weather. You can get stunning views of the Himalayan ranges and glaciers. March, being the beginning of the spring season, the weather starts to warm up. During these months, all flora and fauna, dormant throughout the winter, come back to life, feeding, and breeding in the sun-kissed temperatures. Temperatures start increasing from the mid of March, and with clear skies, snow mountains look their best.

Temperature: Around 18 °C during the day and around 6 °C at night

May to June: This is also the perfect time for trekking, right before the rainfall. Rainfall in Nepal starts at the end of June and lasts till mid-August. The mix of spring and summer seasons makes the trek much more enjoyable.

Temperature: Around 25°C during the day and around 7°C at night

July to August: The rainfall hits its peak during this time at altitudes below 3500 meters. Due to heavy rainfall, flights to Lukla may get canceled at the beginning or end of the trek, but trekkers trek to Everest Base Camp during these months. The hike is challenging but not impossible. We do conduct safe Everest View Treks during this time. If you trek during these months, you will witness spectacular views of the waterfalls in comparatively uncrowded trails.

Temperature: Around 27°C during the day and around 10°C at night

September to October:  These months also form one of the perfect Everest View Trek seasons. Large numbers of trekkers visit Everest reason during these months. As the monsoon slowly ends, a perfect trekking climate sets in. The temperature rises to 20 degrees during the daytime and falls to 5 degrees at night. Most trekkers enjoy trekking the most at this time due to the clear skies, which provide stunning views of the mountains. Tourists coming for the Everest View Trek view in these months can also enjoy the festive mood of Nepalis as two major Nepali festivals – Dashain and Tihar fall during these months.

Temperature: Around 20°C during the day and around 6°C at night

November to December: As winter slowly begins, snowfalls start in the Himalayas, and it gets tough to trek. Nights get very cold. November treks are easier with sparkling days and amazing views of glorious mountains. The daytime temperatures are very stable, but nights are cold. From December, the temperature starts to get very low due to snow.

Temperature: Around 15°C during the day and around -14°C at night

The weather in the Himalayas is unpredictable and changes quickly.

Trek difficulty

The Everest View Trek is an easy trip to see Mt. Everest close without reaching Everest Base Camp. However, this is not a casual journey. The trekking route involves hiking along the rocky mountain, steep ascents, descents, and straightforward paths.

So the trip is not very demanding. Novice trekkers of all age groups can join this trek. You do not need any technical experience or skills. However, the fitter you are, the more you will enjoy the hike. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood disease should inform us before booking the trek.


Trek safety

We take our valuable guests’ safety seriously. We will be carrying all the necessary gear, equipment, and first aid kits prepared to face any situation. Our leaders and guides have completed extensive first-aid training. If a trekker falls sick due to the altitude, your trek leader has the authority to decide whether to continue the ascend or descend immediately. We also make sure that all trekkers trek as a group.

The highest elevation you will reach in the 7 Days Everest View Trek is 3,875m at Tengboche. This package includes a day at Namche for proper acclimatization. The chance of being affected by altitude sickness is negligible.

Your trekking leader and guide have extensive first-aid training and are well-experienced. We also use oximeters to monitor your oxygen level to detect signs of altitude sickness. Further, we have designed our itinerary to prevent altitude sickness. You will ascend slowly, taking regular breaks, and we suggest you drink plenty of water.

We guarantee your health will be in reliable hands. In severe mountain sickness cases, the only cure is to descend immediately. Your group leader has the authority to stop your ascent based on the condition of trek members. You need to understand that some individuals are more vulnerable than others.
