The Everest View trek takes place inside the premises of Sagarmatha National Park, which is a UNESCO Natural Heritage Sites. This National Park was the first national park of Nepal that was enlisted in the UNESCO list of Natural Heritage Site. 

You will have a splendid opportunity to walk in forests that are covered with silver fir, birch, rhododendron and juniper trees inside this national park. It is also home to 118 species of birds including Himalayan monal, blood pheasant, red-billed chough, and yellow-billed chough.

The Everest View trek by Kathmandu Treks starts after a scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla over the Himalayas. From Lukla, you will trek gradual uphills through villages like Phakding, Namche, and Khumjung that have a majority of Sherpa population. 

As the Everest region lies quite close to Tibet, there is a strong influence of Tibetan Buddhism among the Sherpas of the Everest region. While hiking through forests and rocky grounds, you can catch some wonderful views of mountains like Kwangde, Kusum Kanguru, Mt. Everest, Thamserku, Nuptse, Lhotse, and Taweche peak.

You can also explore Khumjung, which has various schools and community projects. You can interact with students of the Hillary School, which was inaugurated by Sir Edmund Hillary. This will give you a strong sense of community as you interact with locals of the region who are really friendly and hospitable. 

Kathmandu Treks offers a unique cultural experience coupled with delightful mountain views and a chance to see the exotic plants and animals of the Everest Region

Everest View trek by Kathmandu Treks is the perfect way for all enthusiasts to get a feel of the natural and cultural beauty of the Everest region in a week. 

Best Time for Everest View Trek

Autumn (September, October, and November) and Spring (March, April, and May) are the best seasons to come to the Everest region for the Everest View Trek

The places like Khumjung, Namche Bazaar, Thame, etc have clear mornings, low precipitation, negligible wind, and crispy views of the mountains in these two seasons. The highest number of trekkers for the Everest View trek is also observed in the winters. 

If you are looking for solitude, off-season discounts, as well as the best view of the mountains, Winter (December, January, February) will be the best one for you. As the trek is in lower altitudes of the Everest region, you won’t be affected by the cold of the winters as well.

You can also complete the Everest View trek in the summer season (June. July, and August). However, there might be flight delays or interruptions in your trek due to the monsoon rain.

Trip Note

Everest View Trek Difficulty; Everest View trek is one of the easiest treks in the Everest region. You will trek for merely 5 days on this trip. The altitude you will gain each day during this trek is also quite low. 

The trek starts from Lukla, which has an altitude of 2800 meters. The highest altitude you will reach in the Everest View trek is 3800 meters in Thame. 

You will trek uphill only 2 days during this trek. 3 remaining days will be your descent back to Lukla. The uphill hikes are also not strenuous to complete. 

However, you will definitely encounter some uphills and downhills. So the trek won't be as easy as walking in flat trails. A few weeks of preparation before coming for the Everest View trek will make your trek all the more relaxing.
