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.
