The Everest View Trek is a shorter and less strenuous trekking option in the Everest region of Nepal. It is suitable for those who are short of time and want to explore the stunning views of Mount Everest and its surrounding peaks. One of the highlights of the Everest View Trek is the visit to the Tengboche Monastery, also known as Dawa Choling Gompa, the largest Buddhist monastery in the region. Every year, Tengboche Monastery hosts the delightful Mani Rimdu Festival on the tenth lunar month of the Tibetan calendar, corresponding to the months of October-November. On this trek, you will also have the opportunity to explore Sherpa villages and experience the local Sherpa culture and way of life. The trek reaches its highest point at Tengboche at an altitude of 3867 meters.
Tengboche is surrounded by a rhododendron forest. Tengboche monastery is structurally located on a ridge top, with commanding views of the Everest landscape including Mount Everest (8848.86 m), Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Thamserku, and other snow-capped peaks.
The Everest View Trek usually starts with a short and scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, a small town in the Everest region. From Lukla, the trek follows a well-marked trail through picturesque Sherpa villages, lush forests, and across suspension bridges over roaring rivers. The route passes through Namche Bazaar, the gateway to Everest, where trekkers often take a rest day for acclimatization.
From Namche Bazaar, trekkers can go to Everest View Hotel - a luxury hotel in the Everest region. The trail to Tengboche follows the contour from Namche Bazaar and then descents to the Dudh Koshi River before climbing again to Tengboche Monastery. After the Tengboche trek goes back to Lukla and ends the trek. From Lukla, you will take an early morning flight to Kathmandu.
The Everest View Trek is considered moderate in terms of difficulty. While it doesn't involve technical climbing, you should be prepared for steep ascents and descents, as well as changes in altitude. The best time to go on the Everest View Trek is during the spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) seasons, but can be done throughout the year. These months generally offer clear skies, stable weather conditions, and moderate temperatures.
During the Everest View Trek, you will find a variety of accommodation options along the trail, ranging from basic teahouses to more comfortable lodges that offer accommodation and meals. To trek in the Everest region, you will need certain permits. The two main permits required are the Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit and the Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Permit. These permits can be obtained in Kathmandu or at the park entrance gate in Monjo.
