Everest Panorama Trek - 10 Days

On the way to the Everest View Hotel, one of the exclusive vantage points to witness stunning mountain views in the Everest region of Nepal.

Everest Panorama Trek, also known as the Everest Valley Trek, is an easy alternative to the full-fledged Everest trekking. For anyone who is craving to explore the grandeur of the Everest region, but does not actually want to put up with the altitudinal hurdles and elongated trekking days, the Everest Panorama Trek is just the diamond of the first water. Of course, the number of days are short, but be assured, you are definitely not going to miss out the fun, adventure and the scenic extravaganza. The petite walking hours and long lunch breaks give us plenty of time to acclimatize properly.

The trip begins with a picturesque flight to Lukla followed by a trek to Phakding on the very day. In the days ahead, we will be navigating Namche Bazaar, the administrative center of Khumbu region. A visit to the mammoth monastery of Tengboche, is going to be memorable, as it is the biggest monastery of Khumbu, and located at the highest elevation (3867m), we attain on this trek. As we pass by the village of Khumjung, a prominent Sherpa settlement, we get a chance to smear the flavor and fragrance of the Sherpa culture all over us. Most part of the trekking route stretches through the Sagarmatha National Park, which is an abode to an extensive range of floras and faunas. You are definitely going to enjoy the easy stroll along the trails with the fascinating backdrop of Khumbu peaks- Lhotse, Thamserku, Ama Dablam, Khumbila and of course, the tallest, the mightiest and the handsomest- the Mount Everest.

Marron Treks organizes both- Camp Treks as well as Tea-house Treks.

Gear up for the subtle adventure! After breakfast, you will join your guide and be driven to the domestic wing of the Kathmandu airport. After 45 minutes, we land at the Tenjing Hillary airport in Lukla, picturesquely surrounded by mountains. At Lukla, we meet up with our porters and commence our trek heading north from the airstrip to Chablung (2660m). As we cross the Tharo Koshi River through a suspension bridge, the peak of Kusum Kanguru (6367m) gradually begins to hood up as if to welcome us! Beyond the Tharo Koshi, the trail climbs up a bit towards Ghat (2592m). Moving ahead, we cross a ridge marked with painted mani- stones and climb to Phakding (2610m) where we stay overnight. Overnight at teahouse in Phakding; breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

 

Day 04: Trek from Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3440m / 5 - 6 hrs)Namche Bazaar, an administrative hub of the Solukhumbu district in Nepal.

So, how was your first day at trek? Easy and entertaining, isn’t it? Let’s have some breakfast and then we are all set to make our mark on the hub of Khumbu region, the Namche Bazaar. Today, the trail follows the west bank of Dudhkoshi River and then steeply ascends via rocky ridge to Benkar (2630 m). We make our way ahead alongside a river, through the beautiful clusters of rhododendrons, magnolias and giant firs, passing by few settlements. If you are trekking during the early autumn or late spring, the flashy flowers blooming alongside the trails, give you the reminiscence of a walk on the park! We now cross the Kyashar river through a suspension bridge and ascend to the settlement of Monjo (2835m). Advancing further, we enter the Sagarmatha (Everest) National Park arena and pass by the settlement of Jorsale (2740m). The route takes us further up through the forests and bridges and makes yet another steep ascent over Luptse-Nuptse ridge, which offers a fascinating view of the milieu. Approximately, a couple of hours’ hike from here, will get us to hustle and bustle of Namche Bazaar. Overnight at teahouse in Namche Bazaar; breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

 

Khumjung, a village located in the Everest region of Nepal is famous of its monastry that preserves yeti (legendary snowman) scalps.Day 05: Acclimatization and excursion day at Namche Bazaar (3440m); Hike to Khumjung (3780m/5 - 6 hrs)

We have the steepest climb of the trek awaiting us the next day, so it’s better that we get well acclimatized. We have two things on our card today; an excursion to Khumjung village and exploring Namche Bazaar. After an early morning breakfast, we set off on a hike to Khumjung, one of the most prominent Sherpa settlements. We begin with a climb to the Syangboche airstrip towards the Everest View Hotel. Built on a Japanese initiative, this luxury hotel is a vantage point to witness the beauty of the surrounding peaks. Moving ahead, we pass by the village of Khude and finally arrive at Khumjung (3780m), a Khumjung School (also known as Hillary School) is located in the heart of the Sagarmatha National Park in the Khumbu region of Nepal.picturesque settlement hemmed by the mountain chain of Kongde, Thamserku and Khumbila. It’s not just the mountains and Sherpas that make Khumjung visit worthy; there is also a monastery here, which preserves the yeti scalps. We can also go for a quick hike to the Hillary School. On our way back, we take an explorative stroll around Namche Bazaar, the administrative center of Khumbu region. Namche Bazaar boasts some of the best hotels and is equipped with all the modern day amenities, like internet cafes, ATMs etc. Overnight at teahouse in Namche Bazaar; breakfast, lunch and dinner included.
 

 

 

Day 06: Trek from Namche Bazaar to Tengboche (3860m / 5 hrs)Tengboche is a village in the Khumbu region of northeastern Nepal, located at 3,860m.

A big day for us as we will be attaining the highest elevation of the trek. The route to Tengboche weaves in and out of valleys making small ups and downs, to the teashops of Kenjoma, and joins the trail from Khumjung towards the collection of mani stones. We can behold the excellent views of Everest and Ama Dablam during this part of the trek. We then pass by the small settlement of Sansa from where the trail drops towards Phunki Thenga (3250m). From here the trail climbs steeply through forests and around Mani stones as it follows the side of a hill to the saddle on which the monastery of Tengboche lies at 3860m. Throughout today’s trek, we can relish the flurry of mountains like -Kongde, Tawachee, Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Kantega and Thamserku on the route. Overnight at teahouse in Tengboche; breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

 

Monjo, a beautiful and tranquil settlement in the Everest region of Nepal..Day 07: Trek from Tengboche to Monjo (2835m /6-7 hrs)

We are perhaps much relieved after having attained the highest elevation of the trek. Today’s trek is certainly lengthy but mostly downhill. The trail takes us steeply down alongside the hill blanketed with flashy rhododendron bushes and crosses the Dudh Koshi River, taking us back to Phunki Thenga. Moving ahead, we pass by the settlements of Thasinga and Sansa and then arrive at Kyangjuma, which offers a magnificent mountainous vista of Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse and Ama Dablam. We trace our way back to Namche Bazaar, walking along the curvy trail clung to a steep wooded slope. As we make our way through the forest, we might just be lucky enough to spot on the wild lives such as pheasants, mountain goats and even the legendary snow leopards! Walking past Namche, we take a steep descent alongside a Namche Hill and cross the suspension bridges at two different points over the Dudhkoshi River. We then head out of the official entrance of the Sagarmatha National Park and finally arrive at Monjo, a beautiful and tranquil settlement. Overnight at teahouse in Monjo; breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

 

Day 08: Trek from Monjo to Lukla (2840m / 4-5 hrs)Lukla, a town in the Solukhumbu district of Nepal, which happens to be the starting point of most of the treks in the Everest region.

Probably, the last walk in the trip, and perhaps the easiest of all too! The route is occasioned by trivial ascents and descents but most of the part is flat. It’s almost like rewinding back your journey. We walk through the open plains, rhododendron and pine forests and Sherpa villages. Crossing the Dudhkoshi River through suspension bridges at three different points, we push ourselves for the last 45 minutes’ ascent from Chheplung. Yes, we are now at Lukla! Thus, with tired legs but content eyes, our trek eventually winds up. Let’s relax and celebrate this accomplishment with the entire crew members! Overnight at teahouse in Lukla; breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

 

Thamel, a popular spot for souvenir shopping in Kathmandu, Nepal.Day 09: Flight from Lukla to Kathmandu (1400m/45min)

From the Tenjing Hillary airfield, our aircraft hits the sky in the early morning and within no time, we land at Kathmandu.

You would probably want to freshen up at the hotel and then spend the rest of the day shopping souvenirs at Thamel. In the evening, Marron Treks will host a farewell dinner party cum a cultural program. Enjoy the succulent Nepali cuisines while you sway your body to the phenomenal rhythm of Nepali folk music! Overnight at hotel in Kathmandu; breakfast and dinner included.
