Everest View Trekking  with The Best Price For 2023/2024

Everest View Trek follows the Everest panorama around the Khumbu region. This 7-day-long trek is for those who want a clear and up-close view of the world's highest peak, Mt. Everest ( 8,848m), without scaling the high altitudes. We start the trek in Kathmandu, visiting some UNESCO World Heritage sites in the city. This helps us understand Nepalese culture better. The next day we fly to Lukla on a twin otter plane. We trek 3 hours to Phakding on the same day. You can get infrequent but a few distant glances of Mt. Everest from Phakding. 

The next day we trek from Phakding to Namche Bazaar, the biggest town in the Khumbu/Everest region. We will officially enter the Sagarmatha National Park today. Namche is also one of the very first viewpoints for Mt. Everest. We acclimatize for a day in Namche. Acclimatization at high altitudes reduces the risk of Acute Mountain sickness. Also, Namche is a stunningly beautiful town, and the acclimatization day will be spent exploring the city. 

We trek to Everest View Hotel and Khumjung/Khunde the next day; it is also the next best place for Mt. Everest's views and is situated at 3,867m. Tengboche Monastery, the biggest in the Khumbu region, is the center of attraction at Tengboche. We also enjoy the views of Mt. Everest, Tawache, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, and Thamserku, among other mountains of the Khumbu Himalayan panorama. The Everest View Trek is a 10-day-long beautiful journey in the Everest region; it features cultural encounters with the Sherpa people, a look into Buddhism in the area, stunning panoramic mountain views, and a great deal of flora and fauna. 

This is an ideal trek for anyone who wishes to bask in Nepal's natural and cultural beauty and its Himalayas, Mount Everest in particular. We offer several trips that take you to the Everest region. Join us in our Everest Base Camp-14 Days, and EBC 15 Days Treks are also available for the different options to pick as your wish.

Itinerary

+ Expand All- Collapse All

Early in the morning, someone will come to your hotel to take you to the airport. From there, you'll go on a special airplane ride to a place called Lukla. Lukla is very beautiful, surrounded by big mountains. You'll even get to see the tallest mountain in the world, Mount Everest, during the flight. When you land in Lukla, you'll be amazed by the mountains around you. You'll meet some local people called Sherpas, who will help you on your adventure. You'll start walking towards a place called Phakding, and it will take about 4 hours. The path is nice and not too hard, and you'll follow a river called Dudh Kosi. You'll see tall trees like pines and cedars along the way.
Finally, you'll reach Phakding. It's a small village where you'll find cozy places to stay called tea houses. You'll have a delicious dinner there and spend your first night on the mountain.

We pass by Chumoa and Monjo villages before entering the Sagarmatha National Park. The park offers a scenic view of green vegetation and wildlife. As we ascend the steep trail to Namche Bazaar, we get spectacular views. Namche Bazaar, the gateway to Everest has varieties of decent offices, hotels, banks, and trading concerns.

  • Max. Altitude3440m/11283ft

This day, we reserve for acclimatization in Namche. For all the trekkers, it is very important to get used to the climate and situation to make the Everest Base Camp Trek successful. For the speedy adjustment to the higher altitude, we hike to Syangboche and further ascend to the Everest View Hotel, which is considered to be located at the highest place. From the hotel, we get a splendid view of the Himalayas: Mount Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, Kongde, and others. After having tea or a coffee break, we gradually descend to the Sherpa villages of Khumjung, where we will have lunch. You may also visit the Khumjung Monastery. The legend has it that the monastery houses a Yeti’s scalp.

When we return to Namche, we may choose to relax or enjoy roaming the colorful town. You may visit the Sherpa museum to learn about the Sherpa culture and the history of mountaineering or nearby Thame, a historic village. It is worth visiting the school established by Sir Edmond Hillary, the first person to climb Mt Everest. Overnight stay in Namche Bazar. Overnight in Namche Bazaar.

Following this, allocate some time to prepare your backpack and engage in your customary stretches. Now, it's time to proceed to our next destination for the day: embarking on a trek from Tangboche. We'll descend through the enchanting rhododendron forest to the quaint town of Deboche, where we'll cross a thrilling bridge over the roaring Imja Khola. Afterward, we'll ascend, and the trail will gradually lead us up to Pangboche and Somare villages, where we'll pause for lunch before continuing to Dingboche. The path from Somare offers a gently undulating terrain, tracing along the valley wall and eventually opening up to expansive plains, culminating in a junction in the valley.

Our journey continues until we reach Dughla, where you can choose to capture a moment or enjoy a leisurely lunch. Afterward, we face a more challenging climb towards Labuche. The trek from Dhugla becomes steeper as we approach the terminal moraine of the Khumbu glacier. This one-hour endeavor rewards us with stunning views. At the summit, a series of stone monuments pay tribute to climbers who never returned from their expeditions. The final stretch to Labuche takes about 30 more minutes along a gentle trail, offering further awe-inspiring panoramas of Pumori, Lhotse, Nuptse, Labuche Peak, and more.

The journey from Lobuche to Gorakshep (5,170m/16,929ft) begins with a gradual ascent after breakfast. The surrounding terrain consists of rock and ice. While walking further, Mt. Pumori and Nuptse dominate the blue sky. Gradually walking, we reach Gorakshep, where we check in at the hotel and have lunch. The next session is to climb towards the Everest base camp, heading along the glacier moraines. It takes about 4 hours to trek back and forth. The first phase is a continual uphill climb to EBC, located at 5364 meters altitude. It's time to take a group picture at a place that is still a dream destination for several thrill-seekers around the globe, where we spend around 30-45 minutes. Exploring the dazzling scenery of the World's tallest peak, Mt. Everest, its surroundings look brilliant, along with the Khumbu icefall. Then we hike down to Gorakshep. Overnight in Gorekshep.

  • Max. Altitude5,364m/17,599ft

This is another significant day of the trek. We will begin hiking early in the morning to witness stunning sunrise views from Kala Pathar (5545m/18,188ft). It is the best viewpoint for observing Mount Everest and other magnificent Himalayan ranges. After that, we will walk back to Gorakshep. After finishing our breakfast, we will experience a comfy helicopter ride to return to Kathmandu. While soaring above, you will share idyllic aerial views of the stunning landscape and the massive Himalayas range.

The helicopter flight is on a sharing basis. It's not a private charter flight. If you want a private ride, don't hesitate to contact us for the price. Please note that the helicopters can land in altitudes above 4,500 meters but can't take off with more than three passengers. So, if there are more than three people, the helicopter will take three people in the first shuttle and drop them off at a designated point below 4,500 meters. The fact is usually the village of Pheriche. Then, in the second shuttle, the helicopter will transfer the remaining passengers from Gorakshep; it will stop at the designated point to pick up the first three passengers and take all of them to Kathmandu via Lukla.

Useful Info

Meals

All meals — breakfast, lunch, and dinner — will be provided during the trek, and breakfast will only be provided in Kathmandu. We host welcome and farewell dinners for our guests. During the trek, we have breakfast and dinner at tea-houses or lodges where we spend nights while there will be lunch at tea-houses on the way. You have the option to choose from Nepali, continental, Tibetan, and Indian cuisines. As we take care of our guests, we ensure that you are getting healthy food. We prioritize locally produced organic food and also provide you with seasonable fruits.

Note: If you are a vegetarian, let us know in advance so that we could make proper arrangements for food as per your wish during the trek

Accommodation

You will be accommodated in a three-star standard hotel in Kathmandu and a guesthouse/teahouse during the trek. All accommodations are on a twin-shared basis. A single supplement will be served on request and will cost an additional. Adventure Club Trek will arrange rooms with attached washrooms; however, teahouses in some places only have shared washing and toilet facilities. Also, note that single rooms are readily available in Kathmandu and the trekking regions at lower altitudes but, it might be complicated to find them at higher altitudes.

Drinking-Water

Adventure Club provides all the meals on the trek but doesn't provide water. The best option is to treat the local water either with chlorine/iodine tablets or use a steripen. The tea houses will give you good quality free water and, you can also get along the trail but, you will need to treat it. If you are using the tablets make sure they dissolve completely (about 30 mins). On most treks, you can buy mineral water along the trail. A liter of mineral water at lower elevation tea houses costs around USD 1 but at higher elevations can cost up to $4 so the cost can add up.

Acclimatization And High-Altitude Sickness

The acclimatization planned during the trip helps trekkers adapt to the environment with less oxygen. Our body needs time to adjust to the higher altitudes. Rushing to the higher elevation without acclimatization may result in acute mountain sickness (AMS) which could be fatal. The trekkers may suffer from AMS above 2,400m/7,875ft as the amount of oxygen becomes less and less with the increase in elevation.

We can categorize AMS into three categories with its symptoms. The trekker suffering from normal AMS feels giddy, gets headaches, Nausea, and is out of breath, and is suggested not to worry as it disappears after the body gets used to less amount of oxygen. Likewise, trekkers suffering from mild AMS show symptoms of dizziness, muscular pain, insomnia, headache, vomit, loss of appetite, rapid heartbeat, and shortness of breath. Mild AMS can be treated with anti-headache medicines.

A person suffering from serious AMS shows heightened symptoms including shortness of breath even while taking rest. The trekker with serious symptoms can barely walk and fluids may start building up in the lungs. The trekker having serious AMS has to be taken to the lower altitude immediately.

Advanced cases of AMS

If AMS is not treated in time, it can be life-threatening and lead to edema, a condition in which fluid is accumulated in the tissues of the body. Following are the two serious altitude sicknesses caused at high altitudes.

High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE)

In HACE, the brain gets swollen which can lead to coma and even death. Its symptoms are paralysis on one side of the body, bladder dysfunction, fatigue, bowel dysfunction, loss of coordination, and confusion. Descend to a lower altitude as soon as possible to prevent the worsening of the condition.

High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE)

Fluid is accumulated in the lungs which also increases the capillary pressure. Its symptoms include severe shortness of breath at rest, dry cough that later leads to producing pink frothy sputum, and fatigue. Important Note: Severe cases of AMS are pretty rare. All our guides at the Adventure Club Trek, are aware of the symptoms of AMS and can handle it with care. We prioritize acclimatization, talk about the use of Diamox beforehand and counsel all our trekkers on the risk and preventive factors before and during the trip. Your safety is our main concern.

First-Aid Kit

Our guides and porters are equipped with a basic first-aid kit during regular treks. For expeditions that take on the isolated and off the beaten trekking paths, a comprehensive first-aid kit is compulsory, the same goes for climbing expeditions as well.

  • A bandage in case of sprains.
  • Plasters/ Band-aids and antiseptic ointments for simple cuts
  • Iodine or water filter (optional) instead of buying bottled mineral water
  • Moleskin/Second skin in case of blisters.

  • Diamox 250/500mg (for altitude sickness).
  • Gel hand cleaner/sanitizer.

Note: We can add medical supplies as per the special needs of the trekkers to the first-aid kit given above.

Equipment And Packing List

If your trek is longer or shorter than that, appropriate adjustments can be made, reflect the specific requirements, season, and length of the trip.

Visa And Entry Procedures

Everyone needs a visa to enter Nepal except Indian nationals. Citizens of the SAARC nations like Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Bhutan do not require a visa for 30 days. Fortunately, getting a Nepal visa is an easy process. Tourist visas are issued on arrival at the international airport and official overland entry points. However, travelers from Afghanistan, Iraq, Cameroon, Ghana, Somalia, Swaziland, Senegal, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Ethiopia, and Liberia are not issued visas on arrival. After you arrive at the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu, you will find electronic kiosks that will assist your visa processing. Taking the completed form and paying the visa fee, you need to stay in the long immigration queue for your visa on arrival.

Visitors can now apply for online visa within15 days of their arrival date in Nepal. For this, you will need your Nepal hotel address and a digital passport-sized photo that needs to be uploaded to the online application. After submitting the form online, you need to print out the confirmation page which has to be furnished at the immigration section in Kathmandu airport along with your passport and the required visa fee. You can apply for your online Nepal visa here.

Tourists can also apply for a Nepali visa at the local Nepali Embassy or Consulate located in their respective countries. Or, they can even mail their visa application to the visa office near their location, but well ahead of time to allow sufficient processing time. Nepal visa information for all categories of travelers and their correspondence cost can be very handy, so for more information and contact details of the Nepali Embassies and Consulate around the world, you may CLICK HERE.

Whichever way you enter Nepal, you will be given a 15/30/90 day visa as per your requirement. The general Nepal tourist visa fee on arrival for multiple entries is:

15 days – US$30, 30 days – US$50, and 90days – US$125

Tourist visas can be extended for a maximum of 150 days in a year and these extensions are granted only at the department of immigration offices at Pokhara and Kathmandu. For more information on Nepal visa, visit our visa information page.

Our Trekking Guides/Leaders 

Here at Adventure Club, our staff is like family. We only use locals to support their communities and we train our staff rigorously to be the best they can be – for you! 

  •  Full first aid training
  • Guide Training (trekking)
  • English and other common languages (as requested) 
  • Village and land Conservation 
  • Mountaineering (for specialty expedition or climbing treks)

All our guides are carefully trained for leadership as good leadership is vital for your trek to be enjoyable, safe, and successful. Most of our guides grew up in Sherpa country or other mountainous parts of Nepal. Their pride in their region shows itself in the way they lead treks and interface with you. 

Porters Care

Courtesy and respect are fundamental for an enjoyable and worthwhile experience on any team. Our porters are an essential, integral part of each trekking team, and as such, they are well-treated and well-paid. After your trek, we believe you will find that they have fully earned your gratitude and respect. We do expect all trekkers to keep the weight of their baggage under 22kgs/40lbs. Adventure Club Trek maintains a full commitment to the rights of our porters, providing them with appropriate clothing, gear, and lodging. In case of serious accident or sickness, they receive the same care as anyone else employed on the trekking team, even including evacuation by helicopter at our expense if appropriate. We fully support the IPPG (International Porter Protection Group), which strives to maintain and improve our porter's working conditions.

Travel Insurance

To be adequately protected in terms of insurance, you will need specialist travel insurance for participation in hazardous activities. A travel insurance policy that covers helicopter evacuation, trip cancellation, injury, death, lost baggage, theft, liability, medical treatment, and expenses is strongly recommended. Make sure the insurance covers all the activities that you will be undertaking during your stay in Nepal such as trekking and climbing. If you are injured and unable to travel, you can ask for a rescue helicopter from a remote area only if you have definite proof you can pay for it. Adventure Club Trek has an agreement in Kathmandu that guarantees payment for helicopter evacuations. They pay a cash deposit to the helicopter operator and collect the money from you once you have been rescued. Be sure your policy specifically covers mountaineering or alpinism or you may have a difficult time settling a claim.

Electricity, WIFI, and  Battery  Recharge

During your trek on the Everest region, electricity is available to recharge your phones, laptop, iPads from micro-hydro power, and solar panels on a paying basis. As for Wi-Fi, there are no hotspots along the trekking trail after Namche. The only two places offering free Wi-Fi are Starbucks coffee in Lukla and Everest Bakery in Namche. At other places upwards, you need to pay for using internet services, which increases gradually with the altitude.

Communication On Trek 

On Everest  View Point Trek in Nepal, the internet service will be available at lodges with some extra service charge. You can also contact your family and friends from the guesthouses, but as we reach high altitudes, the communication will be through the phone for safety purposes. We communicate with all our valuable clients through the team leader at least once a day to make sure you are fine and enjoying the trip. The Adventure Club Trek office in Kathmandu will constantly touch for help you may need during the trek. Depending on the network you use, there could be a poor signal to network before the high altitude. Upon your request, we can provide you with a separate local sim card for a better network. Many places have WIFI service available at an extra cost.

Group Size and Team Composition 

We always try to form a small group of like-minded people to give them a wonderful and perceptive travel experience. It provides opportunities to interact and share in a fun-filled environment when out in the wilderness. Generally, our travel group comprises a maximum of 16 members. We need at least two participants to run our fixed departure dates. For private trips, the number of group members does not apply. We always strive to form a team ensuring that the members are comfortable with one another.

Tipping 

Tipping is not mandatory in Nepal as most services include a service charge. However, if you want to express your gratitude, you are free to offer a tip to drivers, and hotel staff among others. People usually welcome such generosity. When it comes to tipping your porters or trekking leaders, use your discretion as per the quality of the services. Tip money does not form a part of our employees’ wages. However, you can use tipping as a way of showing appreciation for excellent service at the end of the trip.

    The highlight of my Nepal experience. Memories for a liftetime.

    My trek with Adventure Club Trek was based on my hiking experience and my interests that Birendra took into consideration, and so I went on a brief trek through the Chichipani, Chipping, and Terkeghang with Chabi who was the sweetest guide I could have ever wished for, he was very knowledgeable and friendly and made my trekking experience so awesome, with a balance of allowing me to soak up the atmosphere privately in the high peaks overlooking serene landscapes, and being great company throughout the rest of the hike, providing motivation, humor, and facts about the area. The trek itself was so great and felt like an awesome start to a hobby I can take up now in my home country. My trek was a beginner's level, which pushed me to my physical limits at times, but with Chabis's motivation and breaks in between climbs, I was able to climb to heights that surprised me. It was such a rewarding experience. Although it was at a beginner's level, it wasn't "easy" it was quite tough at times, proved to be a challenge but not impossible or excessively difficult to accomplish, and it wasn't lacking in beautiful views or dramatic scenery. At times I felt like Indiana Jones, or Lara Croft.. some kind of explorer. I even had at a time climbed over a large precipice-type rock formation on a mountain that had ferns and large boulders and made me think of like.. the land before time, or some kind of Dinosaur set. Like I was looking over land that was so natural and separated from mankind (Don't worry, there were teahouses dotted along my particular trek. I wasn't lost from civilization. Though at times, the views of the landscape were so dramatic and beautiful it inspired me to feel that way) So many beautiful views, and it felt like each day I got a different concept of Nepal's beautiful landscape - the first day it was all mountainous, hiking at first through a national park, and then through farmland that went up the mountain before having lunch at the top, and then heading along the mountain top and going down to our accommodation for the night. On the second day, we headed up a second mountain, this time again it was mountainous with the occasional farmland, before we reached the top, headed across the top witnessing spectacular views. That night we stayed high up with a great view from atop rice paddy fields. The following day we headed down through the rice paddy fields and the abundant cultivated land, down the mountain till we got to a large river, which we walked the side of for the rest of the day, seeing wild lavender at the side of the trail, and fields of bright yellow canola, contrasted with the bright blue sky, the pure gleam of the blue river and the bright white rocks and boulders that made the river bed. It was spectacular. I felt like I honestly was walking through the scene of some kind of famous European painting. I honestly couldn't thank Birendra, Chabi, and Adventure Club Treks enough. I was lucky that I had the opportunity to be able to travel to Nepal in the first place, but I felt truly blessed that I was able to experience the Trek of a lifetime. It inspired me in so many different ways. The imagery will always be ingrained in my mind.

    Best adventure trip ever!

    This tour has been truly amazing and even though it was tough on some bits I enjoyed every minute of it.
    The landscape is simply beautiful and breathtaking.
    Thanks to all the Sherpas, assistants, and our brilliant guide Birendra. I can highly recommend any trip with Birendra who is the perfect guide as he is not just highly knowledgeable but also kept an eye out for our well-being at all times.
    Thanks again for such a special experience.
