Everest View trekking

Mount Everest allures the world by being top of the world. Everest View trekking offers the opportunity to see many stunning Himalayan peaks including Everest from low elevation within a short period of time. The trek also known as Everest Valley trek is ideal for those who aspire to see the Everest but could not take strenuous walking to Kalapatthar or Everest base camp. We fly to Lukla with spectacular views of the mountains and ascend the Dudh Kosi valley to the Sherpa settlement of Namche Bazaar (3440m. ). In Everest view trekking, a leisurely walking through the lovely forests and fascinating Sherpa villages to the famous Buddhist monastery of Tengboche is rewarded with the views of Everest soaring behind Lhotse and Nuptse and stunning peak of Amadablam . We visit Pangboche the highest point of this Everest Valley trek and return to Lukla visiting en route the peaceful village of Khumjung which offers the glimpse of rich traditional Sherpa life.
