Overview

The Everest Panorama Trek offers a condensed yet immersive journey through the lustrous Khumbu region, allowing trekkers to capture the very essence of the region without enduring the challenges of high-altitude trekking. Specifically tailored for those with limited time or certain constraints but still yearn for that Everest experience. Along the journey, you get to witness lush forests of rhododendron, rocky trails, along with colourful gompas and monasteries amidst the soaring peaks. You'll get the opportunity to explore the numerous Buddhist monasteries scattered along the trail, immersing yourself in a rich culture with history and tradition intricately connected to the majestic mountains.

Our journey begins with a 40-minute flight from either Kathmandu or Manthali to the Tenzing-Hillary Airport at Lukla. This breathtakingly scenic flight takes us to what is considered to be the most dangerous airport in the world. Lukla stands as a testament to the undeniable bond between humanity and the Himalayas. As the gateway to the world's tallest mountain, it allures adventurers from far and wide to embark on a journey of exploration and self-discovery.

The 6 days trek commences as we make our way to Phakding from Lukla the very day we land there. From Phakding, we climb a steep path, savoring awe-inspiring vistas of the magnificent Himalayas, flowing glacial rivers, colorful prayer flags, and sacred mani stones. We get our first glimpse of Mount Everest as we make our way to the delightful Sherpa town of Namche Bazaar by early evening. Namche stands as the largest and most prosperous town in the Khumbu region, hosting a bustling bazaar every Saturday. The next day, we take our day off and acclimatize in Namche by hiking up to the Syangboche airstrip and the world's highest hotel, Everest Hotel View. From Namche Bazaar, we trek to Tengboche and explore the famous Tengboche Monastery. After a night at Tengboche, we start our descent as we trace our steps back to Lukla for an overnight before we take a flight back to Kathmandu.

Additional Information

Physical Fitness

  • The Everest Panorama trek is physically demanding, involving long hours of walking at high altitudes. Prioritize cardiovascular fitness, strength, and endurance in your training routine.
  • Consult with a healthcare professional before starting any fitness program, especially if you have pre-existing health conditions.

 

Altitude Sickness 

  • Understand the symptoms of altitude sickness (acute mountain sickness - AMS) and be aware of the risks associated with ascending to high altitudes.
  • Acclimatization is crucial for your body to adjust to the increasing altitude.
  • Headache, vomiting, nausea, dizziness, and shortness of breath are common symptoms of altitude-related sickness. If you notice any of the signs, consult your guide and follow their directions.
  • When suffering from AMS, do not continue the trek; instead, stay at the same location or move to lower elevations.

 

Accommodations

  • Familiarize yourself with the teahouse accommodation system along the trail. These are basic lodges that provide meals and shelter.
  • The rooms are primarily twin-sharing with attached bathrooms up until Namche; as we keep ascending, it will be on a shared basis.

 

Connectivity

  • Be aware that internet connectivity is limited, and you may not have access to it in certain areas.
  • Mobile Networks are unreliable.

 

Environment Considerations

  • Respect local customs and the environment. Follow the principles of "Leave No Trace" and contribute to responsible tourism.
  • Bring a refillable water bottle and purification tablets to reduce plastic waste.

 

Weather Condition

  • The best time to trek the Everest Panorama trek is autumn (mid-September to November) and spring (March to early June). Temperature varies from 4°C (39°F) to -12°C (10.4°F) during March and early June to 8°C (46.4°F) on average during the peak seasons of September and November.
  • Trek in the favorable seasons and keep away from the rainy season (July and August). In the cold months of January and February, the temperature can drop to -20°C (-4°F) and can be a little harsh in the mountains.
  • Traveling during bad weather conditions is the worst scenario possible, so always read the weather forecast or travel during peak seasons.

Trekking Permits and Documents 

Permits

  • Khumbu Rural Municipality Permit - USD 20 (For Everyone)
  • Sagarmatha National Park Permit - USD 15 (SAARC), USD 30 (Foreign Nationals)

Everest Panorama Trek Length and Elevation

Trek Length

  • 7 Days 
  • 2 Nights at Kathmandu

Elevations

The elevation factor poses a significant challenge throughout the trek, beginning at Lukla airport with an altitude exceeding 2,800m. Since most individuals aren't accustomed to such heights, the journey incorporates acclimatization days. The ascent to Everest Base Camp is deliberately slow to allow for acclimatization and prioritize safety over speed.

 

Typically, daily elevation gains will fall within the 400-800m range. After days with substantial gains and higher altitudes, there's a pattern of including acclimatization days. These days serve a dual purpose, providing time for sightseeing and exploring the surrounding areas.
