Trip Information

Venture into the heart of the Himalayas on the Everest View Trek

The soaring mountains and alpine pastures that characterize Nepal’s world-famous Khumbu region have always represented a paradise for mountaineers and trekkers, and the mighty Mount Everest tops every hiker’s bucket list. But it’s no secret that it takes some serious dedication to reach Everest Base Camp itself, and many travelers devote up to two weeks to the round-trip experience. If you’re short on time, you might think that the marvels of the Khumbu lie firmly beyond your reach. That’s precisely why Friendship World Trek is delighted to present our Everest View Trek: this exciting itinerary allows even the most time-pressed visitors to witness the spectacle of the world’s highest mountain firsthand. In just five days, you’ll be whisked from the urban rhythms of Kathmandu to the windswept mountain wilderness of Nepal’s most alluring trekking region. Read on to discover more about what you can expect on the Everest View Trek!


Unforgettable mountain panoramas and Sherpa culture await you on the Everest View Trek

One of the chief highlights of your Everest View trekking adventure is bound to be the Sagarmatha National Park: the premier wilderness of the Khumbu. It’s here that you’ll explore forests of pine and rhododendron, traverse terraced fields and meadows, climb ridges dotted with deodar and fir, and ascend to stunning vantage points where the entirety of the Himalaya seems to spread out before you. But there’s more to the Everest View Trek than the splendor of its alpine scenery; your trek will afford you the opportunity to meet the Sherpa people who call these mountains home. Sherpa villages are scattered across the length and breadth of the Khumbu, culminating in the historical trading center of Namche Bazaar. You’ll also get to learn about the traditional form of Tibetan Buddhism practiced in these mountains, with a special opportunity to visit the region’s most important religious institution: Tengboche Monastery.


What makes the Everest View Trek unique?

With all of these spectacular highlights, it should perhaps come as no surprise to learn that the Everest View Trek is rapidly becoming more and more popular with hikers from across the globe. And because your route will overlap with the path traveled by hikers returning from Everest Base Camp, you’re sure to enjoy the camaraderie of your fellow travelers and hear their tall tales of trekking passed around the table at mealtimes. But while some of your fellow trekkers may have spent weeks and weeks on the trail, your adventure will be completed in just a few days! This means that you won’t need any prior trekking experience to rub shoulders with mountaineers, meet friendly Sherpa villagers, and take in the majesty of the world’s mightiest mountains: Everest, Lhotse, Nupste, Ama Dablam, and many more.

Best Time of Year for the Everest View Trek

The best time of year for the Everest View Trek is much the same as the best time of year for the Everest Base Camp Trek. Weather in Nepal is variable, and the best trekking seasons are usually determined by the arrival of the summer monsoon. In order to avoid the wettest conditions, many hikers travel during the spring, which occurs from February to March. This is the time of year when wildflowers are in bloom and temperatures are at their most comfortable. Other trekkers might prefer to undertake the Everest View Trek during the autumn season, between September and November. This is perhaps the best time of year for crisp days and clear mountain views. Of course, winter treks are also possible; while temperatures can be cold and trails can be packed with snow, there is an undeniable appeal to enjoying the majesty of the Khumbu without a crowd. And while the summer monsoon can make trekking challenging during this season, Friendship World Trek will be happy to arrange a suitable adventure for you at any time of the year.

Please note: On rare occasions, domestic flights between Kathmandu and Lukla may be delayed or canceled due to weather conditions. This can happen during any time of the year, and you can rest assured that Friendship World Trek will work with you to make any possible alternative arrangements to minimize the interruption to your holiday.


Everest View Trek Difficulty

Prior trekking experience is not a prerequisite for our Everest View Trek, and most travelers in reasonable health will be able to complete this itinerary without serious difficulty. However, this trek does reach a maximum altitude of approximately 3,700 meters, where it’s possible to experience symptoms of altitude sickness. For this reason, you should be in good health and physical fitness before embarking upon the Everest View Trek. Walking, running, and other forms of cardiovascular exercise are great ways to prepare for the opportunity to visit the high-altitude Khumbu region. An expert guide from Friendship World Trek will also be assigned to watch over you, monitor your progress and condition, and shepherd you safely through Nepal’s most stunning alpine environments.


More Everest View Trekking Options

There are plenty of paths to follow in the Khumbu, and most of them lead to first-class views of the incomparable Mount Everest. If our Everest View Trek isn’t quite right for you, consider our classic 12-day Everest Base Camp Trek. And if you’d like to see a side of the Khumbu that many travelers miss, you might also take a look at our Everest Gokyo Lake Trek itinerary. Whichever route you choose to take, you can rest assured that Friendship World Trek will help you to create the perfect custom itinerary for your unforgettable Himalayan adventure.
