Everest Panorama Trekking is an ideal trek if you want to admire fascinated landscapes and discover cultural richness without having to go through exhausting downhills and uphill trails. Within a short time frame, the trek allows you to witness the spectacular Himalayan giants like Mount Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku and many others. Along with the close proximity to the highest mountain in the world, one also gets to indulge in the beautiful Sherpa settlements, their culture, costumes, lifestyles as well as numerous monasteries, Gompas and other serene places.
Nepal Eco Adventure offers you a relatively easy Everest Panorama trekking. You will start your trek at Lukla after 45 minutes of a scenic flight from Kathmandu. Your final destination will be Tengboche village – on the lap of Ama Dablam – which is on top of the hill, bounded by snow capped mountains. You will discover Tengboche Monastery, which houses an apparent Yeti’s scalp when the story of the Yeti in the Khumbu region is still a mystery to the world. Everest Panorama trekking also includes the hidden valley of Khumbu- Thame to the northwest of Namche Bazaar.
The few days of this adventure will be spent in the delightful and scenic villages of Khumjung and Namche bazaar, where you will have the opportunity to interact with the legendary Sherpa people and participate in their astonishing traditional lifestyle.
What’s the plan?
Day 01: Flight to Lukla (2875m) | Trek to Phakding (2610)
You will catch an early morning scenic flight to Lukla. The Everest panorama trek will start from there. This first easy walk will help out with your acclimatization. You will be staying overnight at a tea-house in a lovely village of Phakding.
Day 02: Trek from Phakding to Namche bazaar (3450m)
After a hearty breakfast at Phakding, you will walk through beautiful pine forests and then cross the many suspension bridges over Dudh-Koshi River until you arrive to Sagarmatha National park’s checkpoint. After showing your permits and other documents, you will enter the protected area, then pass through Jorsale village to enter Namche Bazaar. After walking past forests and bridges, you will reach the merging point of Dudh Koshi and Bhote Koshi Rivers. After a few more hours’ hike, you will finally reach the famous Namche bazaar, the trading center of the region. Overnight at Namche.
Day 03: Namche Bazaar | Acclimatization day
This day is set aside for acclimating to the region and to prevent altitude sickness. A short detour will be taken either to Khunde village or Namche Bazaar itself, with numerous restaurants, shops, bakeries and markets. You will also be able to trek up to the tourist visitor center near the headquarters of Sagarmatha National Park to observe a number of things related to Sherpa climbers, plants and animals. The acclimatization day will help you to adjust to the mountain air and prepare you for the days to come.
Day 04: Namche Bazaar to Thame (3800m)
On this day, you will take a hike up to Thame and roam around the village and also visit a famous monastery there. This 5 hour hike is also supposed to help in acclimating to the altitude. Overnight at Thame.
Day 05: Trek from Thame to Khumjung (3785meters)
You will start with a climb up to the famous Syangboche airstrip. The climb is steep for two hours and then it levels until you reach Khumjung village. The Khumjung valley is surrounded by the peaks Kondge, Thamserku and Khumbila and also has a monastery that houses the scalp of a yeti. A number of colorful monasteries, Hillary school and the traditional settlements are also the highlights of the area. Overnight at Guesthouse.
Day 06: Trek to Tengboche
From Namche, you will pass through yak pastures with picturesque views of Mt. Everest, Ama Dablam, Thamserku and others to reach Kyangjuma and then to Dudh Koshi. Two and a half hour walk from there will take you to Tengboche, famous for the Tengboche monastery that opens after 4 in the afternoon.

× Desserts, Hot Shower, Hot Water, Mineral Water and Wi-Fi
Certain luxuries such as desserts, a hot shower, hot running water, bottles of mineral water and Wi-Fi should be missed during a typical trek in the Himalayas. The water we encounter along the way is drinkable and is heated or boiled by us.
During the trek we stay in lodges or teahouses. The teahouses are basic of nature. Some of them have a squatter toilet, while others provide a western style alternative . Showers do not always have hot water and most tea houses charge for the use of hot water. Some teahouses have access to the internet, but always at extra charge. Please read our blog about the teahouses in Nepal.
Safety is of the utmost importance to us. That is why this is an area in which we simply do not compromise when it comes to keeping the cost of our trekkings low. Our guides have been selected on the basis of their technical competence, proven safety performance, impeccable judgment, friendly attitude and ability to provide useful and expert instructions. They are also very professional and well trained in first aid and personal protection equipment. First aid kits are available on all treks. In addition, the routes are ideally designed to give you enough time to acclimatize.
While the intention is to stick to the described route, a certain degree of flexibility is built in. In some cases it may be necessary to change the route here and there. The mountains are full of surprises, and the weather in the Himalayas is unpredictable. The guides continuously carry out risk assessments throughout the expedition. It is therefore best to plan a number of extra days in Nepal for possible unforeseen circumstances. Read all about altitude sickness here.
Do you make it to your destinations as planned? Often this depends on the unpredictable weather in the mountains. However, it can also depend on your own physical condition.
Do you like walking, have you done trekking at altitude more often and do you sport twice a week on average? With a little extra training, you’ll soon be ready for this beautiful trekking in the Nepalese Himalayas.
Is this the first time that you are trekking at altitude? Make sure you are well prepared. This is important for your safety, but also for that of your team. Make sure you start six months in advance with an hour’s walk twice a week. Read this blog post and get fit for trekking in Nepal.

Frequently Asked Questions
If you have read our blog post about the best time for trekking in Nepal, you will know that every season in Nepal is suitable for trekking. However, in certain times of the year the one area of Nepal is more favorable than the other. Most people who go trekking in the Everest region and Gokyo Valley do so from March till the beginning of June and from September till the end of December. The Annapurna Region is best enjoyed in March to May and from October all the way to December. Just like Everest, you can trek in Annapurna all year round. The same seasons are most popular when talking the Manaslu Circuit and the Langtang Valley. The Upper Mustang is your choice during the Monsoon season when the rest of the country gets more rainfall. The Upper Dolpo is perfect most of the year, especially from March all the way to November.
Bookatrekking.com strives to only work with providers who treat porters in a fair manner. Without porters, there is no trekking in Nepal. They are the heart and soul of your adventure and they every day carry part of your gear. Bookatrekking.com always tries to find a balance between an affordable trekking adventure and the fair treatment of porters.
Porters are partly dependent on tipping. The cheaper your trekking, the more likely it is that the salary for porters is low. In any case, this must be compensated with tipping. It is an unwritten law in the Himalayas. On your way you will notice that the amount of tipping is a hot topic. At the end of the trek there is an opportunity to give tips. The rule of thumb is to count 10 to 15% of the total amount of the trek. This can be divided into 60-40. The 60% of the amount goes to the guide and 40% is for the porter(s).
Currency and Payment Methods
We recommend you to bring US dollars or euros to pay for your visa, further travel and other costs. It is easiest to travel in Nepal with US dollars. Nepal has reasonable banking facilities with branches of a number of international local commercial banks. Credit cards such as Visa and Mastercard are widely accepted. ATMs can be found everywhere in Kathmandu and Pokhara. There are ATMs in larger cities during the hikes. However, it is a good idea to bring enough money from Kathmandu or Pokhara as in Nepal you never know if the ATMs will work.
Upon arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu you can get a tourist visa. USD 25 for 15 days from the date of issue, USD 40 for 30 days and USD 100 for 90 days tourist visa. You need two passport photos. You can apply for an online visa here.
No immunizations are required vsiting Nepal, but it’s always worth checking which vaccinations are recommended and check you are up-to-date with all your boosters.
Although you can get vaccinations in Kathmandu, it’s generally better (and often cheaper) to get them before your trip. Either way, it’s always worth consulting with your local doctor or nurse for up-to-date travel and inoculation advice at least 6 weeks before your planned departure date.
The main recommended vaccinations for Nepal are Hepatitis A, Typhoid, and Meningitis. Boosters are also recommended for Tetanus, Polio, Mumps, and Measles.Depending on your travel plans, you may also consider inoculations against Japanese Encephalitis, Hepatitis B, and Rabies. This is especially important if you have young children, plan to stay for an extended period of time, working in health care, or visiting rural areas and the lowlands of the Terai Region.
