Everest View Trek


Everest View Trek is a short trek that provides you with an overall glimpse of the Everest region and its main attractions. Everest View trek has the highest altitude around 4000 meters. This tour encompasses the Mt. Everest (8,848 Meters), Mt. Lhotse (8,516 meters), Mt. Cho Oyu (8,201 meters), Mt. Pumori (7,161 meters), Mt. Ama Dablam (6,812 meters), Mt. Thamserku (6,623 meters), Mt. Kongde (6,187 meters) and other mountains of Everest region as well. Besides, the mountainous aspect, this mini trek will also provide you an opportunity to witness the lifestyle of local Sherpas.

As you continue this trek, you will witness the popular Sherpa villages like Monjo, Syangboche, Khumjung, etc. Tengboche village is another pristine village that you will be taken to as a part of this trek. Eventually, this trek leads you to the Tengboche monastery located at an altitude of 3867 meters. Tengboche monastery is the main destination and highlight of this trek. This monastery is located on a ridge/cliff and is surrounded by the dense forest of rhododendron. You will be spell-blinded by the view of Tengboche monastery with the backdrop of mountains like Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, etc.

The temperature goes down as the altitude increases but it’s not much compared to the popular high-altitude treks of Nepal like Everest Base camp, or Kanchenjunga Base camp. As a result, this trek is quite easy and fit for those who are lagging behind in terms of trekking experience. Everest View Trek is at its best during Spring and Autumn seasons. However, due to its lower altitude (comparatively), you can also take this trek during the winter season.

Difficulty While Hiking in Everest View Route

Everest View trek falls into the category of the easy trek as it’s not a high-altitude trek. The interested travelers can be a part of this trek along with their families if they have maintained a basic level of fitness. For your ultra-safety, we recommend you to get onto some physical exercise so that 5-6 hours of trekking for a few days won’t be a huge deal. With health conditions under check and some trekking guidance, even the trekking enthusiasts with no prior trekking experience can go through with this trek.

We further suggest that you prepare yourself mentally as well as physically for this trek. This might help you in case you fall prone to Altitude Sickness. We suggest you do basic research then decide which season to go for the Everest View trek as the weather is a vital factor to consider while planning any trip or trek.

Best Season for Everest View Trek

One of the best times for Everest View Trek is spring. Besides the spring season, the Autumn season is also very appropriate for this trek.  As a result of the comparatively low altitude, we can also go for this trek during the winter season. However, be sure to pack accordingly. Avoid Everest View Trek during the Summer season if possible.

Summer Season:

The summer season is among the least preferred time for Everest View Trek. The slippery and muddy trail as a result of rainfall is the reason behind it. To make it even worse, trails might be teeming with leeches plus unclear whether might result in poor on no views of the Himalayas at all.

Spring Season:

Blooming rhododendrons and other flowers, spectacular views of the Himalayas, safe trails, and good mild weather conditions make the spring season the best season to visit Everest View Trek.

Autumn season:

The Autumn season is another best season for Everest View Trek. The sight of blooming forest and green fledgling forests might be missing in Autumn months by vivid panoramas of mountains, clear blue skies, and safe trails more than makeup for it.

Everest view Trek during Winter Season:

Due to low altitude, Everest View Trek is a good choice during the winter season as well. The benefits include safe trails, good views, trekking in solitude, etc. However, we advise you to take this trek during winter only if your routine is very strict and henceforth have no time during another favorable season.
