Everest View Trek

Mount Everest is a name that has been familiar to the world for a long time, and the glory of Everest spread far and wide as the highest point on Earth. Just a glimpse of this beautiful mountain is a blessing. Wandering around Mount Everest warms a pure heart and changes how you view the world. While the journey to Everest base camp is very fulfilling, it is also a long and daunting experience. If you don’t have the budget and time for such a hectic walk to Everest base camp Himalayan Masters offers a rather relaxing and luxurious trip to Everest that lasts for less than a week and offers some of the best views of Mount Everest. This is called Everest View Trek 7 days, offering the best view of Everest.

What to expect from Everest View Trek?

Most importantly, you get to witness Mount Everest in its most glorious form. Our best view point during the trek is Everest View Hotel, which oversees the best panoramic views of Mount Everest and dozens of other Himalayas in Nepal. However, you don’t need to complete an arduous trek for it. As soon as you fly to look like from Kathmandu, the Himalayas stars appear close and distant, giving the best view of Everest. 

With the insightful natural views, you will also have a close cultural experience during the Everest View trek seven days. From Lukla, we trek to the inner Khumbu region, where we stop at many villages, such as Phakding and Namche Bazaar. Living the Sherpa lifestyle and exploring their old cultural heritages, you will have the best time of your life and also the best view of Everest. Also, the luxury of a comfortable hotel and delicious Nepalese cuisine make your trek enjoyable. After two days of stay in Namche Bazar and a visit to Hotel Everest View, we shall walk back to Lukla. From Lukla, it’s a thrilling flight to Kathmandu where your trip comes to an end.

Everest View Trek Highlights

  • Starting with a thrilling flight to Lukla
  • Trek to Hotel Everest View that overlooks the painful aroma of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, and dozens of other peaks in Everest
  • Witness the spectacular biodiversity at Sagarmatha National Park
  • Part of Local Tibetan culture while celebrating their festival and trying on their clothes
  • Meet many great explorers and mountain climbers along the way
  • A comfortable and luxurious trip in the remote landscape

Accommodation is Available At Everest View Trek

Since we will be tracing the route of the famous Everest base camp, accommodation will not be an issue during Everest View Trek. There are many great hotels in Namche Bazaar. In Kathmandu, we will stay in a luxurious three-star hotel, and during the trek, we also have some pretty good guests to stay with. Even in such a remote landscape, you will find a room with great facilities. Yeah, they will have good mattresses and blankets so that you do not need to carry your sleeping bag. You can also get charging pods and a hot shower in the room. Furthermore, you can also have a good Wi-Fi connection and a tower in the cell phone during the trek, giving the best view of Everest. These are not the facilities you can expect in the mountains if you trek to a rather higher altitude.

Food In Everest View Trek

The trek is not just about the mountains; delicious cuisine is also an exciting part of it. During your stay in Kathmandu, you can enjoy all kinds of Nepalese, Indian, Chinese, and foreign cuisines. Even the Khumbu region has some great options for Nepalese and international food. The must-try for breakfast includes Tibetan bread and warm vegetables. There will also be hot soup, pancakes, porridge, muesli, and omelettes. For lunch and dinner, we recommend the famous Na please Dal Bhat, which has an excellent flavour plant. You will also find momos, fried rice, pasta, pizza and more. You also get to enjoy breakfast at Hotel Everest View, with the views of the mountains before you.

You must remember that a bottle of water cost 2 to 3 dollars at a higher altitude, and you can save that money with water purifying tablets. Also, you need to carry your water bottle for the mountain environment.

Climate And Weather Of Everest View Trek

The general weather in the mountainous region is always cold and breezy. However, the Everest View Trek is a rather lower altitude trek that takes you up to 3000 m above sea level. This means the weather is pretty stable throughout the year. Only in the peak winter can you see some snowfall otherwise, Districk can be done any time of the year.

Everest View Trek in Summer

The months of June and July are the warmest as well as the wettest months of the year. While other regions of Nepal receive about a  hundred centimetres of rain each monsoon the amount of rainfall in the lower Everest region is pretty low. Everest view trekking in summer is definitely possible, but the mountains might be blocked due to the thick layer of fog. It might be a great time to explore the biodiversity of Everest but not the mountains.

Everest View Trek In Autumn

October is the peak month for trekking in Everest and the entire region is crowded. You might want to avoid the crowd by trekking in early September or late November. Since this is a festive month celebrating Dashian and Tihar, you might get to enjoy the Nepalese celebrations. Also, the mountains shine at their best in autumn and the picture appears perfect

Everest View Trek winter

While the route of Everest base camp is closed due to snowfall, you can easily trek up to Namche Bazar. Everest view trek in winter is even more appealing when the mountains are covered with the snow and views are interesting. The temperature might drop off to -10°C, and you might have to carry a sleeping bag.

Everest view trek in spring

Spring is a season of warmth, sunshine, and beautiful wildflowers. Without much rain and disturbances, you can easily trek in April, March, and May. The perks of walking through the Rhododendron Forest are unbeatable

What is the best time to see Everest?

Everest View Trek
Best time for Everest View Trek

When it comes to the Everest view trek, every season is the best. While Autumn is the most popular time of the month, it’s also a crowded one. We do recommend trekking in autumn if you want to capture beautiful pictures of the Himalayas. However, you can plan the trek at any time of the year and complete it without much disturbance. Going for a slightly off-season monsoon or winter even gets some great discounts on the flight and hotel prices.

Permit And Checkpoint Of Everest View Trek

Trek to Namche
Trek to Namche

You should know that there are different permits needed for trekking in the Everest region. Along with your visa that she received at the airport you will also need a Sagarmatha National Park entry permit and a Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Entrance Permit. The cost for these permits is NRP 3000 and NRP 2000 per person. If you are an Indian or a member of SAARC countries the ticket price is cheaper. The national park permit can be issued at TAAN, Nepal Tourism Board Office at Pradarshani Marg, Kathmandu. You can also get both of these permits from Lukla. If you are trekking with Himalayan Masters, all of your permits will be arranged by the company and you do not need to worry about it.

Cost of Everest View Trek

Everest view trek cost ranges from dollar $800 to $1200. If you are travelling independently without any travelling agency you might be able to complete the trick at a cheaper price Highway having a guide and portal by yourself does cost you a large amount. Also, due to the language barrier, it will be difficult to book your hotels and restaurants. Since Everest View Trek involves two-way tickets to Lukla, it’s quite expensive. If you want a rather cheap trek, maybe you can look at Langtang Valley Trek.

The Himalayan Masters Everest View Trek costs $980 including the two-way flight tickets Lukla, all permit costs, and the cost of guide/ Porter. We will be accommodating you at the best hotels available throughout the trek.

If you to travel as an Independent trekker, then you first need to pay about $50 for the permit the flight to and from Lukla costs about $400. And then you will pay for your food, which costs around $10 per meal, and the cost of accommodation is also about $10. The cost of the guide is about $25 per day and that of a porter is about $15 per day. Also, you need to rent some trekking gear such as trekking boots and jackets. You might not need a sleeping bag for this tour.

Everest View Trek Difficulty And Fitness

This is a comfortable and easy trek in the Himalayas. You need to trek for 4 to 5 hours, for about four days only. While this trek does not need any previous experience or high-altitude trek training, some exercises and practises before the trek will obviously be helpful. You also don’t need any experience of using mountain gears or special skills.

You might choose to keep your body strong with some short treks and cardio exercises in the gym, a few weeks before the trek. However, even if you have zero preparations, you can easily walk to Namche and get back. Also, if you have any problem during that trek, you will always be accompanied by your expert guide, who can help you. Also, since we’re trekking at a rather low altitude, the chances of altitude sickness are zero. So, you have nothing to worry about. Just keep yourself hydrated, and that’s about it.

Reviews

A review of our trip to the Everest view hotel with our guide Pasang. Me and my mom really enjoyed our time with him. He was very flexible and kind. He was able to change our schedule to our liking and capabilities. He was a knowledgeable guide and kept us informed and safe throughout our trek. He was a good leader and worked well coordinating our porter too. He even carried our stuff towards the end when the days got long and our legs were tired.
My favourite part of his guide was that he was relatable and he was down to earth. I would really recommend him for other tours. He is a really good addition to Himalayan masters

Couldn’t recommend Himalayan Masters more for anyone looking for a trekking trip in Nepal

As a first-timer to Nepal and any trekking trips, Sandip was professional from our first conversation with him – he was able to help us with trail selection (based on our experience and preferences); trip preparation (such as equipment to purchase and bring). Items that are included/excluded as part of the package are also clearly written on the website (and fully delivered, if not more). What we really liked was how flexible trip planning was and how responsive Sandip was in answering our queries and helping us prepare for the trip.

As we arrive in Nepal – all accommodation, pick-ups and other transportation are well-arranged. The package was designed so that Himalayan masters also provide some necessary mountaineering gear – so all in all It was a truly hassle-free experience and we could focus on enjoying the trek and views Everest has to offer. All concerns we had with regard to adapting to the food / high altitude / cold weather / physical fitness are being well taken care of. The team is very experienced in high-altitude trekking and we could trust them with any questions we had. Sandip is also really just one message away most of the time so any questions were being addressed promptly. Due to weather conditions, or the flight from Lukla back to the city was cancelled – Sandip was very professional throughout and helped us arrange alternatives so that we could catch our international flight.

Everything aside, we set off to Nepal knowing that we’d enjoy the mountains, but the team at Himalayan Master just made you fall in love with it more. Sandip, our porter Bage is both genuine and really passionate about the mountains. They shared so many things about nature, culture and their experiences on the treks which made the trip so much more interesting. The way they talked about the peaks and expeditions they’ve had still stuck with me. You will on one hand be amazed at how well-versed they are with the Everest region and its everchanging conditions; and on the other hand, just great people to be around and spend time with.

Will definitely go back someday for more trails and would hope to trek with Himalayan Master again!

FAQs

Do I need a guide for Everest View Trek?

Yes, whether it’s a month-long trek to the problematic landscape or a relatively easy trek as Everest views, it’s always a great idea to hire a guide. If you are travelling in a peak season, you might find other travellers to assist you. But in the off-season, there’s always a chance to get lost, especially in winter when the trial is covered in snow. The guide will not only show you the path but also help you with hotel booking, listing out places to visit and things to do, and interacting with the locals. The guide is especially handy in difficult situations like altitude sickness or other health issues during Everest View trekking.
